Essay on Horse Riding!

In my childhood I had been dreaming about horse riding. It is so great to sit on the horse and to ride around beautiful landscapes and places. It was so captivating! But when I was 18 years old, all my dreams disappeared - I tried to ride some horses individually but all efforts were in vain. However, I picked up an interesting topic for my research paper writing in college "Horse Riding: Is is a Hobby?" - and got… Continue

Huh. How 'bout that.

Oct. 25th. Saddled up Saturn for a conditioning ride. The NJ Canal 25 mile CTR is November 1rst, and we are entered to go! I haven't competed in ANY rides since April. I am seriously in need of doing a RIDE. Since I've started using Easyboots over Saturn's front shoes, he seems much happier going down the trail. Putting them on him when I'm tacking up has become second nature, I don't think about it, I just put them on. I have taken my other horse,… Continue

My Re-write of FEI Release for Kentucky Cup

This is my edit of the official News Release from FEI for the Kentucky Cup. I think the release reads like the society page of a small town newspaper that is trying to suck up to the people who buy all their advertising. The name dropping of royalty is rediculous, and there is NO mention of horses. When I cover a ride I would say something like "Jane Doe won the 100 riding her 7 year old 15.2 Anglo-Arab, Lightning". After which I might describe where she got the horse and some insight into what… Continue

Horse Love

I'll be the first to admit that I've been accused of loving my Fox Trotter too much. Maybe a more accurate description would be that in the beginning of the relationship I let her get away with many little things that had the potential to end up as bigger problems. Her breeder brought it to my attention. My Trotter loves to lead the pack which can be a problem when riding in a group. I love her move out attitude, but she needed to learn to be a follower as well. With some mindful riding and… Continue

starting a new horse

While being side lined I got Domingos loganberry going the round pen, walker are a life saver. Now remember this is the horse that would run you down with food in your arms! with the help of calypso we could brush, lead him, be around him and not worry. So what happenes when you take away Calypso? Alittle spooky, but still ok to be with me. I was not able to ride, but I could walk him so thats what we did hundreds of miles. We have these great trails just outside our door. Just like riding at… Continue
