Windsor Castle Horse Groom Job Open Now   1st May 2014
Windsor Castle Horse Groom Job Open Now
Care and Grooming I hope that HRH’s birthday wasn’t too marred by the fact that she needs a new groom for her stables at Windsor. The job listing for the position is open until May 2nd, which means there’s still a few days left for you to apply. A description of the duties and requirements as well as an online application for the job is available on The Official Website of the British Monarchy.

The location of the job will be at the Royal Mews at Windsor Castle. The Royal Mews at Windsor Castle is where the Queen keeps her riding horses and ponies. The Queen is a frequent visitor there, so in addition to the riding and management skills required, a suitable applicant must also know how to bow or curtsy at the right time, and remember all the formalities and etiquette needed to interact with the Queen. It’s probably not a great idea to call her Betty, Bess or Liz or burp in her presence.

Keeping Your Whites White and Your Brights Bright   14th Dec 2013
Keeping Your Whites White and Your Brights Bright
General Winter can present some challenges when it comes to keeping your horse groomed. If you've got a grey, palomino, cremello or pinto or any other white or pale colored horse, you might not recognize your horse until spring, because manure stains, mud and other grime can turn your horse into a horse of a different color. You can't bathe your horse, because of the cold and no matter how much elbow grease you apply, it's hard to get rid of the 'yellows'. Grooming isn't just about how your horse looks. Grooming in winter is also a good time to check for cool and damp weather problems like lice, rain rot, ringworm and scratches.

My Dead Horse Visited Me Last Night
 by Miss Mustang on 11th Dec 2010
My Dead Horse Visited Me Last Night Horse Stories  It was around nine at night and I just really wanted to see Rebel, but that was impossible so I cycled down to my livery yard and sat down in Rebels Stable. Just weeping and weeping untill it hurt to open my eyes. I sat there silently until I heard a crash and saw a white flash even though my eyes were shut tight. I opened then squinting and a bright light. My heart skip a beat at what stood in front of me.

Choosing a Horse
 by Polo the Weirdo on 16th Aug 2010
Choosing a Horse General  What would be the point of having that lovely skewbald if it is trained in barrel racing and you want to be dressage? Why get that first horse you see if you want to do showing and it has cow hocks and an ewe-neck? Would you thank yourself for getting that champion horse when you find that it’s just too fizzy for you, and throws you off on every second stride? No, you would not. As such, you need to forget about what you want or what you’ve always dreamed of, and focus on what you need.

MTG - Mane Tail Groom   13th Aug 2010
MTG - Mane Tail Groom
Product Reviews To begin with, Marmalade was experiencing hair loss from a condition known as rain rot. The skin in the affected areas had either no hair or sparse, bristly, loose hair. The skin was very dry and flaky. I looked up different hair growth products, and my mother found M-T-G. We went and purchased a 32 oz. bottle for roughly $30.00.

The Nature of the Crazy Eventer Those of you who event, or know somebody who events, will surely agree with me when I say that the sport defies all logic. It’s like trying to take a convertible around a 4X4 track, or going skydiving using a plastic pac . . .
27 - 28 July Eventing Show - Part Two The next day was what we’d all been waiting for: Cross country. As a 90cm entry, Finola was first to go, and with air-cooled eventing boots on her legs and the rubber Pelham in her mouth, she warmed up like a spring-load . . .
How To Tell if Your Horse is Trying To Kill You ‘He wouldn’t hurt a fly’, you say? Check again. That swishing tail attached to your darling’s perfect bottom is actually a weapon of mass destruction. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the corpses of all his defe . . .
April 24th and 25th Two Day Event On the weekend of 24 and 25 April, I attended a 2-day-event with my wonderful horses, Bronze and Badger. This was my first time eventing on Badger and my first time doing a Pre-Novice (90cm or 3ft) event on Bronze. Now, . . .
27 - 28 July Eventing Show - Part One I had two mounts at this show: My own horse, Finola, doing her first 90cm event, and a client’s horse, Pride, in her second event at 70cm. Pride is a five year old mare, Appaloosa cross Warmblood, who I have been tra . . .
Finola - The Comeback Finola’s rehabilitation process was a long one. Weeks upon weeks of roadwork to strengthen her tendons and build muscles, and still weeks more of gentle schooling until she was ready to really hit the flatwork hard. At t . . .
Why I Regret Giving my Eventer a Holiday (The incredible true story) Anybody who has owned or ridden one will know that eventers are machines. Some are scooters, trundling mildly around until they bump into the frist cross country jump and the engine cuts out. Others are monster trucks, p . . .
Your Horse - Partner or Problem The question I pose to you today is a sensitive one, but one that all of us will inevitably face at some point in our riding careers: when is it okay to quit? Those of you who know me will know that I’m a firm believe . . .
The Eventers Dictionary - Part 1 Since the beginning of time, there has always been a certain communication barrier between horses and humans, mostly due to our unfortunate inability to learn to speak their language. This dictionary serves to break down . . .
Flatwork for Showjumping It may sound surprising to say, but ‘showjumping’ is actually not all about ‘jumping’. When faced with a big course of jumps, the horse’s physical jump can only take it so far. What matters is what happens between the ju . . .
