Fun with a Western Saddle
Tuesday, 17 March 2009

Have been thinking for a while that it might be nice to try a western saddle. I was talking to someone the other day who rides western and they described it as really good fun. So I took the plunge and ordered a couple of western saddles to try out with my guys.

Frog Spawning Ground
Sunday, 01 March 2009

Not really horse related but fascinating. I found a frog spawning ground in the ditch behind the arena. They were very active this morning. I took a couple of pictures to share with you:

Inconsiderate Motorists
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Horses have trotted along our roads longer than cars but ignorant drivers actually speed up or beep when they spot horse riders using the road.

Side Pass Practice Polly
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Practising side pass and lifting feet without contact with Polly on the ground. She moves the front ok but tends to drag her back end. Need to work on that a bit more. Polly loves to conserve energy!! She backs by the tail very nicely. Handy if you need them to reverse out of a trailer.
 
Side Pass Practice Harley
Saturday, 28 February 2009
Practising side passing and lifting feet with Harley on the ground. Harley will be 3 in June. He is still a bit young and his attention span is limited. He's good all the same considering we dont use the halter or line. For a finale he stands on podium. He loves standing on the podium!!
