Allergies & Skin Health
An allergy is an exaggerated response from the immune system to a substance in the environment, called an allergen. Although horses can become allergic to things they eat, inhale, or touch, insect bite hypersensitivity (IBH or "sweet itch") is…

It's show season! For us, that means getting our manes french-braided and doing everything from dressage tests to trail classes to leading patterns, all the while being filmed on video. The videos are then uploaded to Para-Equestrian Canada where our riders compete on video against riders from across the country, all of them with some kind of disability.
What a cool idea. We horses get to show off to people we've never even met, and the riders love it,…Continue
Stress and tension plague us in modern times. Too many voices. Too many demands. With white knuckles and gritted teeth we soldier on. We can spot the signs of tension in a person – but what about a horse?
As judges we’re trained to recognize technical errors, lack of talent and…Continue

Ok, well maybe "lie" is a little on the strong side but intentional misconception hits it right on the head! Most of my coaching clients tell me that they eat "pretty…Continue
One of the most common problems that is faced when raising poultry is that of mites. There are several different types of mites that can infest flocks and poultry housing. These mites can result in production and economic losses as well as eventual death if the problem goes unresolved.
These mites can come from many different sources. Wild birds and rodents entering the coop may bring them in or they may be picked up at sales, auctions or shows where many birds are in close…Continue

Although of course it shouldn't be all about the medals and the winning, it absolutely thrills and validates me when one of my clients sends me a picture such as this one. (Christian Hartung riding “Watulele” from the Christiane Noelting Dressage Center in California). This is an absolutely textbook case of a beautiful horse demonstrating "Durchgelassenheit" ('throughness, suppleness, etc.') Of particular note is the fact that he has a beautifully rounded croup, the angle of the hind leg is…Continue
I finally got out of the ring this week! Debbie's stable is part of a much bigger farm, and last week the farm owner redid some of his fences since his cows were escaping. When he did this he gave Debbie's riders a gate into a few acres of his woods and the woods already have trails. Halfway through my lesson she suggested going into the woods, and I was all for it. The sun was hot and I was already melting. So Debbie walked ahead and Mia and I…Continue
What a fabulous night it was! I left work early again to do work things and got stuck in traffic.! It took me half an hour to get from one exit to another that usually takes 1 minute!! I heard there were storms all around us too, but we missed them. It was dry at the barn. I was there early still even though we left at 4 p.m. My lesson wasn't until 8:30 p.m. and we were there at 6. Love it when there is a bank deposit on lesson night, that way I am not so rushed at the barn.
Dressage is an equine discipline of beauty, partnership and art. YouTube is full of spectacular videos of elite horses and riders. When Blue Hors Matinee’s freestyle was viral, a dozen non-horse friends sent me the link. I hear Moorlands Totilas has groupies like the rock star that he is, but my personal…Continue

That should not even be a question!
I’ve met many people who are fascinated by horses enough to want to ‘get’ their own horse. Often, acquaintances or people I’ve met will ask me my opinion about buying a horse – where do they start?
I run through all the typical questions…Continue
well, how's life?
I've been leasing a fun little gelding named Pirate, there's pics of him in my gallery. It's been nice just riding without pressure of lessons and the stress from the people around you, but I'm ready to get back into now.
Time to hold my head high, forget how much I hate some of the people, and just ride. I've chosen this life, and I'm prepared to live it. Dressage forever.

Went out to the barn right from work, got there at 6:30, it took 1 1/2 hours in the rush hour traffic, oh boy!
We worked a bit in the round pen, turns, come to me and sideways towards me. He is getting so good at that, I am going to try to do that everytime, it's great for getting him to come towards me at the mounting block, which I haven't tried yet.
We did a little giving to the bit in the indoor arena then went outside to ride. He was so full of zip, mister speedy!! There…Continue
