From out of nowhere came another lady, this one all the way from Florida, who spent all weekend in the pasture with her, no petting, just talking, and who started working on the human trust issues. Jolee turned in her adoption application after that first weekend and flew in almost every weekend after that, slowly gaining Naysa's shattered trust. Before long we started seeing pictures of Jolee sitting in the pasture, Naysa inches away, listening, or Jolee and Naysa sleeping together in the… Continue

It's Wednesday, prep day before I ship my two horses to Palgrave. Weather forecast sucks. Rain rain and more rain!
My trainer is competing on my mare Ratina at second level, hopefully she'll cope with people and umbrellas! she's a tad spooky to say the least.
Davenport will be fine, though brollies aren't his fave thing in the world either.
I'm not looking forward to riding in a downpour. I had been obsessing about how to make my hair neat under my top hat since… Continue

I was at a show last weekend. It was the hottest weekend in CA this year. There has been some complaining about how hard the judges where. I know there where a lot of low scores. But as I watched some rides they seem to right on. I know my horse was a little flat. He did have lack impulsion. My scores seem to be that same as other shows I have been to this year. Have you all noticed a change in the judging this year? Do you think it is because of this rule change?

Sports drinks are expensive. If you would rather make your own, dissolve a tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt in a tablespoon of orange juice or in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and add 7.5 ounces of cold water. This mix has all the benefits of a sports drink.

Sono di ritorno dal salone del cavallo americano di Reggio Emilia, che anche quest'anno è stato un evento bellissimo. Tanta gente, tanti che sono venuti a trovarci allo stand. Abbiamo instaurato un sacco di buoni contatti con gli altri espositori.
Eccezionale Rudi Kronsteiner che nel Derby ha marcato 236 con STAR SPANGLED WHIZ, con una performance da togliere il fiato!

I received this email from a friend and thought it was a great story to share!
I've written articles over the years about horses who survived amputation surgery. There was Boitron, the California Thoroughbred stallion who could service mares after amputation surgery. There were Dr. Ric Redden's dramatic cases of founder survivors who galloped around his paddock on artificial feet with 'transplanted frogs'.… Continue

For anyone who has been following Dr. Karen Sharf's advice on Healthy Rider, she has a great video on leaving your fear at home. What you may not know is Dr. Karen has helped me enormously in dealing with my own fears. Here's how it worked for me.
Dr. Karen first suggested to me that I start by giving my fear a name. I named it "Blob." Not very interesting, but there it is. Then she asked me to come
with an image of what my anxiety looked like - short or tall, what
color, etc.… Continue
