 By Ponybox   •   3rd May 2010   •   10,654 views   •   40 comments
If you track Ponybox on Youtube.com you probably have run into the Blackie vs. Outtie accent challenge. Blackie, who is from New Zealand and Outtie, who is from Autralia both posted a video displaying their accent.

Video 1 - New Zealand

Video 2 - Australia

Anyway, now we need your opinion.

Who's accent would you rather have? Video 1(New Zealand) or Video 2(Australia)
Crazy Stunts with Olop - Jumping Backwards - Part 2 Let me begin with a note to any of you who scorn this idea: I first got this idea from seeing a photo of Rodrgio Pessoa, an undeniably brilliant rider, trying the exact same stunt: Jumping his horse backwards. It isn’t just some harebrained scheme I concocted on my own. Next, let me mention my motivation for persevering with this dangerous and surprisingl . . .
 
 
2 - 3 October Equestrian Eventing Results On 2 October 2010, Bronze, Badger and I embarked upon the short journey to a showground not-so-far-away where we were scheduled to compete in an event - more specifically, our last even before the upcoming eventing championships. The Saturday started with the dressage. Badger performed beautifully and ended up lying 2nd after the dressage with only 51,8 . . .
 
Jumping My Polo Horse Bareback This video shows myself and my Polo horse simply being ourselves and having a great time! Everything in this video is bareback, it is a complete no saddle zone! The only tack used is always either a bridle or a halter and lead rein. It also includes some of our more daring moments where I drop my reins and leave the little horse to do it herself. I am please . . .
 
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Six Now, as this series has taught us, it really isn't possible to completely ‘prevent’ back pain in horses. Any athlete – equine or otherwise – will take strain, and as riders, it is our responsibility to maintain the physical well-being of our horses (through the methods previously mentioned). What, then, do I mean by ‘prevention’? Well, the answer is this: Th . . .
 
Retraining a Racehorse – Moonfire – The Jumping Clinic On 28 January 2011, Moony and I attended a clinic by Andreas Hollmann – An international rider and course designer, and a professional coach. We were supposed to take part in a group lesson, but there was only one other rider in our 80cm group, and she never arrived – so by a stroke of luck, Moony and I got the lesson all to ourselves. . . .
 
Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 4 With the horses, we were given some old poles, tools, a wheelbarrow and a hay feeder – just a few useful items to help us out with building paddocks and looking after the horses. The same groom who led me around on Bronze also came along, and became our groom – and a truly fantastic one, I might add. He, at least, knew how to properly care for the horses – t . . .
 
Retraining a Racehorse – Moonfire – First Show Of The Year With 2010 well behind us, the time soon arose for Moony to make his 2011 debut – heading off for his first show of the year on the morning of 5 February 2011. He loaded without a problem, and arrived at the show safe and sound and raring to go, which is just as well, since we were – as usual – terribly late. As such, it was with desperate haste that I flu . . .
 
A Tribute to Fred On this day we bid farewell to Fred – who has been a loyal companion to me through the good times and the bad. Fred has brought so many of us such joy. He has helped us to remember and enjoy so many moments. Fred has played a very important part in my riding life, especially recently, as he has helped me to see what I am doing right, what I am doing wron . . .
 
Retraining a Racehorse – Moonfire – Back by popular demand As many of you might remember, I began publishing weekly training articles on my work with Moonfire as soon as I got him. However, I chose to discontinue these articles after about the 6th one – purely because I had written all I could about the methods I was using with Moony, and my work from that point forward was only repetition. Yet recently, it has c . . .
 
16 October 2010 Provincial Junior Showjumping Championships - Part 2 This day started with Polo and Bronze each doing their speed classes. Polo started brilliantly, went around at a great pace and took all the tight corners I mapped out for her. She clipped a pole down on the tightest turn, simply because she didn't quite tuck up her legs enough. Polo has always had a casual jumping style, so I didn't much mind the pole, sinc . . .
