EasyBoot Bare Boots
Tuesday, 29 January 2008

Have just started (October 2007) trialing these out with Tommy (I had used the Old Mac to transition Magpie.)  They are a not as easy to get on as the Old Macs but once on he seems quite comfortable and he's got smaller feet than Magpie being a thoroughbred.

Rhythm Beads
Monday, 28 January 2008

Rhythm Beads help develop confidence and rhythm in both horse and rider. The beads hang around your horse's neck just above where a breast collar goes and has bells whose slight jingles calm and relax both the horse and rider and are useful for alerting both wildlife and other riders that you are approaching while you are out on a hack. The bells on the necklaces help eliminate arena and trail distractions.

I have a few sets made up already. You can see the details in my shop section

Torsion Endurance Saddle
Friday, 25 January 2008

I love riding bareback on Magpie but she gets a bit uncomfortable if we go on out on a long hack so I thought I would get a Torsion Endurance Saddle for those long hacks. Some of our hacks could be in the region of four hours.

It was bit strange when I first started using the saddle but Magpie seemed really happy in it and it is a lovely red colour.

The Birth Of Harley

Harlequinn's (Harley) Birth (Official name: Far Grinn Mor - Gaelic for Big Clown)

I was priveledged enough to be at the birth of our first foal born on 5th June 2006:


Rope Products
Tuesday, 08 January 2008

These are all the rope products I use:

A 12 foot lead rope. I prefer this length, as it is long enough to do all your ground work, and get out of danger if you are working with a disrespectful horse, but it is not so long that you get tangled in it.

The rope has a weighted end that makes it easier to swing when you want your horse to move away, or yield. It also has a quick release snap.

Old Macs Hoof Boots
Monday, 07 January 2008

These are the boots we used to transition Magpie in 2002. She has not worn a boot since 2004. These worked well for us but she couldn't wear them every day as she did get a bit rubbed.

Original Old Mac's are great for horses with wide hooves!
