When you think of pit ponies often images of 19th century coal mines springs to view Ė dark and damp, with sooty, stale air dull on the tongue. But pit ponies were still in service well into the 20th century. In fact Ė the last recorded colliery horse was removed from underground ...

There were just two options - A second surgery to remove the plate that had been put in just eight months earlier, or... Putting Choc down. All at once, I was thrown back into a nightmare from which I had barely awoken. Had we really come all this way for nothing? The answer, whe ...

The next few weeks of her recovery were full of ups and downs. The wound would begin to heal, and then infection would set in again, and once more Iíd have to wait, scared to death, while they tested to see if it was in the joint. And so it went on, for months on end, with Choc w ...

8th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
To me, putting Choc down was never an option. For a horse so full of life, and so eager and ready to take on her next challenge and fight to keep living, it would just be wrong to take away that chance. This, of course, left two options. The stable rest would have been far, far c ...

Mark's spooks and bad behaviour were adding up to a horse that I didn't have time to deal with. With two small kids I didn't have the time to re-school and re-train every time I rode. I wanted my horse time to be relaxing, and it was becoming increasingly stressful. I began to pl ...
