To Win The Triple Crown - Epilogue   31st Oct 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Epilogue
Horse Fiction After the Belmont I go into retirement. My legs were apparently damaged. When I ran the Belmont, I damaged them even more. I finally had to get surgery in my front right leg.

Swiss comes with me to the breeding barn. We get stalls next to each other and we get put into the pasture together with another horse named Candy Apple.

Eric comes and sees me every week to say hi and he fills me in on his races and how he's doing. He's doing really well. His career had taken off since winning the Triple Crown, on a mare no less. He doesn't come out as often since then, but he'll always be a part in my life since he was my one and only jockey.

Ponybox Newsletter Video #5   30th Oct 2012
Ponybox Newsletter Video #5
Ponybox News Episode 5 of the Ponybox Newsletter Video gets off to a slightly crazy start, but if you have seen the other videos, crazy is normal. Enter the parrot hat. After the bird leaves the set you get greeted as usual by a myriad of shout-outs, horses for sale, items for sale and graphics for sale.

Jump-offs records are discussed and this is followed by a few apologies to other members. Of course, the typical - I'm going to quite Ponybox - discussions are mentioned, but we all know how this ends, they don't actually quit.

Preparing Your Horse and Barn For A Hurricane   29th Oct 2012
Preparing Your Horse and Barn For A Hurricane
General As hurricane Sandy marches towards the U.S. East Coast with winds approaching 90 MPH and historic levels of rain and snow, the thought of an unprepared barn or stable facility is on every horse owners mind. The primary debate we hear at Ponybox is - Do you keep your horse in or out of the barn during a hurricane? Which is safer for your horse?

A Changed Mare
 by My Paper Heart on 27th Oct 2012
A Changed Mare General  As the majority of you know, I have had problems with my moody mare, Penny, for years on end. In the past she has pinned me up against fences, thrown big fits over nothing, and practically acted like a wild mustang. But she still had her moments where there was peace and calmness. To my surprise, the minute my neighbor's sold their horses I could see a change in her. I hadn't even worked with her in a while, which was really the reason I was surprised. The horse I once knew as a reckless, useless mare was now calm. I won't lie, she does have her wild at heart moments, but there has been a major change.

To Win The Triple Crown - Part 5 - The Belmont   24th Oct 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Part 5 - The Belmont
Horse Fiction As Marie heats my legs again that night, the vet, Amy, comes and checks them. She seems happy that the heat wraps are working and says it's a good sign. I hope so; I want to run this race for myself and for Marie. I want to win for Eric and Bill. I want to win for myself, to prove that I really can run. I want to show everybody my ability and that a girl can win the triple crown. I've never wanted anything so badly in my life, and I will do whatever it takes to run this race and win.

Nerd Reviews: My Horse Club - Horse Game   23rd Oct 2012
Nerd Reviews: My Horse Club - Horse Game
Product Reviews So I’m back, once again and this time without a portable pony. This game has been down for roughly a year and has finally come back online. This is ‘My Horse Club’ which is an online free game with 3D graphics.

This game took me a while to find three years ago and I’ve signed up for it ever since. The first year I was playing the game worked fine. But come December the game suddenly closed. This was probably because of the big server needed as the game was getting more popular. However, after a year of it being offline it finally came back online in September.

Your Horse From the Ground Up - The Hindquarters
 by mosquito on 21st Oct 2012
Your Horse From the Ground Up - The Hindquarters General  We’ve seen how the lower legs and hoof all work together to help the horse move, even without any muscles there. Now let’s start looking at how the muscles of the horse really give him power, speed, and balance. Where better to start than the actual ‘engine’ of the horse, the hindquarters?

The horse gets almost all of the power and energy for movement form the hindquarters. There is a simple but powerful structure of levers (the bones), controlled by ligaments, and powered by large, dense muscles. These muscles are where everything begins with the horse. Fortunately they are fairly robust, and injuries to the hindquarters – even the bones and soft tissue structures – are relatively rare. However, you still need to understand how they operate if you are going to take care of them – and get the best performance from your horse.

To Win The Triple Crown - Part 4 - The Preakness   17th Oct 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Part 4 - The Preakness
Horse Fiction I start to jog a little next to the guide as we get closer to the gates. When we do, I'm number seven again, so I have to wait as the horses in front of me load in. One horse, a bay, refuses to go in. The jockey has to get off, then he gets into the gate. The jockey remounts him when he's standing calmly in the gate. I recognize the horse. He's the one that showed off when Marie was showing me the track. I know that he's a big competitor now.

I load calmly after the stallion with advice, as do the rest of the horses. Everything goes silent as we wait for the bell to chime and the gates to burst open so we can gallop into the fray. I concentrate on where I want to be in the pack and how I want to win this race.

Ask Polo - Article 2   15th Oct 2012
Ask Polo - Article 2
Horse Training “Bolting when I get on. He's as good as gold on the ground, but when I mount, he bombs off before I've had the chance to get my stirrups or tighten my girth. This morning, my saddle slipped and I fell off, because he didn't give me time to adjust it, so it's getting dangerous. He settles a bit after a very tight circle, but it takes him almost ten minutes for him to settle down enough for me to get him to do anything. He is so close to perfect once he's gotten past that ten minutes, but those ten minutes are causes a lot of problems, and as he's young, I don't want it to become a habit.”

To Win The Triple Crown - Part 3 - The Kentucky Derby   12th Oct 2012
To Win The Triple Crown - Part 3 - The Kentucky Derby
Horse Fiction By the time spring rolled around, my brown coat shined in the sun. My legs have grown longer and leaner, meaning I'm about seventeen hands high and my stride is huge. Muscles ripple along my shoulders and back when I walk. I notice people stopping and watching me as I walk by. I know I'm going to be a huge racer this season because they train me everyday to run faster and longer. They're grueling workouts, but I feel much stronger now.

Nerd Reviews: My Horse - Horse Game
Product Reviews We start off this beautiful sunny day (If you’re not in England) with saying what this game requires. You must have either an android powered smart phone or an iPhone/iPad as this is not a phone for bricks (sorry). The game can be found by searching for the keywords “My Horse”. I only downloaded this game five days ago and I'm truly addicted to it. The graphics are simply beautiful and the game is easy to understand and operate.

How to Draw Horse Hooves on Photoshop   4th Oct 2012
How to Draw Horse Hooves on Photoshop
Graphics We’ve all encountered that perfect stock image, a sleek, well positioned horse that will fit nicely in the background we’ve picked out for our manip - except for one little detail. Dirty, gross-looking hooves. What now? Do we just abandon our stock horse in search of another with more manageable hooves? Unfortunately, most of our equine friends have an irresistible attraction to mud and dirt, and their hooves are inevitably the first things that encounter the muck. So now what? It’s time to redraw those hooves!
