Ask Polo - Article 1 This is the first article in my new series, ‘Ask Polo’. In this series, I will be addressing equine problems mentioned by players, and giving suggestions to assist in solving their problems in article format. Today’s problem was posed by Ponybox player ‘Bright Horizon’. . . .
 
 
How To Tell If Your Horse Is A Vampire It has recently come to my attention that my horse, Moony, is exhibiting certain qualities that some may class as ‘vampiric’. In fear of an outbreak of equine vampires, I have decided to write this article to raise awareness. If you suspect that your horse may be a vampire, watch closely for the following signs! Sparkling in sunlight. As a recent poorly-w . . .
 
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 . . .
 
Surviving The Warm-up Arena Have you ever taken a moment at a show, to pause before entering the warm up? Do you ever look into that deadly hornets’ nest of an arena and think, 'Holy doughnuts, I’m going to get crushed in there!' If you haven’t – good for you – but those of us with any sense of self preservation whatsoever will certainly have experienced just how threatening a place th . . .
 
May 16 2010 Showing Championships On 16 May 2010, I entered my first ever showing competition on my horse, Bronze. Being an ignorant amateur, I went ahead and entered the Open Show Hunter class at the provincial championship as my first show. Well, I must admit that I got a bit of a shock when I realized just how ‘big’ everything was. It was not some casual little show. It was a championship . . .
 
The Elusive Nature of the Half Halt The half halt - every rider's best friend - also happens to be an annoyingly elusive tactic that at first seems near impossible to grasp and is often near impossible to explain. If you are like me, you will have been told many a time to 'half halt'. When I was given this command previously, I would simply close my hands on the reins and try to slow my hor . . .
 
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part One When it comes to selecting a saddle, any knowledgeable horse person will tell you that this is a task not to be taken lightly. The fit of a saddle can make or break a horse’s performance, and a poorly fitting one can cause severe injuries to a horse over time. Choosing a saddle is not just about what looks good on the horse, or what’s the prettiest colour. S . . .
 
9 - 10 October Showjumping Competition To start with, Moony was having a bit of a baby moment and was struggling to concentrate properly in the new show venue - especially considering it was quite a big show with lots going on. Crowds, flags, open spaces, cows on the hill - and a course of jumps that the poor baby is supposed to do whilst still taking it all in! Thus, he approached the first jump . . .
 
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, ploughing boldly around and demolishing anything in their track. The best ones zoom and leap like dirt bikes. As for me? I’ve got myself a fr . . .
 
Saddle Up Series - Understanding Your Horse's Back - Part Three A horse with a sore back can react in a number of different ways, each varying vastly depending on the nature of the horse and the intensity of the pain. Time and again, when told of a horse that is acting even slightly out of the ordinary, the go-to response of any horseperson would be, 'Well, have you checked his back?' It is common knowledge that back pai . . .
