It all started around November 2011 – I couldn’t tell you what caused it. Sometimes there is no cause – young horses are constantly going through phases, which are seldom triggered by anything at all – and this was just ...

A Competitive Streak Show Update
21st Jan 2013   |   Shows and Events   |   Run Free
As I entered the ring I was confident, I trotted around the 'evil' jumps and cantered over towards the first fence, ironically this was the most challenging to me. It stood at 65cm but was quite wide and brightly coloured. Angel was very hesitant, but with a tap of the whip and w ...

Hopefully everyone knows my special pony, On Angels Wings or Angel for short. This is a story about all the special moments we shared together. I got inspiration for this story from a photo album on Facebook named "cause we don't remember days, we remember moments" and I thought ...

A Competitive Streak

I pushed into a nice canter and looked for the first fence, a small spread. As we turned the corner we set up straight into the fence and before I could think Angel dug her heels into the ground and refused to jump, this seemed to happen once or twice at each fence despite my eff ...
The Story Of An Angel

In short order we signed up for the Killinick Harriers Hunt branch of the Irish Pony Club. Pat (the yard owner) was a strong influence on the club after hunting with them for as long as I can remember. After an instructor watched me and Angel they agreed we could participate. We ...
Showing a Horse Nobody Else Wanted

On October 16th 2010 I met my dream pony, the red and white mare with no name. She was extremely thin and unfit, but she was quieter than a lamb. I worked hard on ‘fixing’ her, feeding her, grooming her and getting her fitness up and eventually she became something extraordinary. ...
Saving an Angel
31st Aug 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Run Free
I had been very upset lately. My mare Star had been sold after 5 years. Dad said he would get me another mare, a young one if I was up to it. I knew he would get me a new mare, but at the time I thought no mare could top Star, she was my first pony. I was very upset and I didn’t ...

Mustang Mountain - Part 3

Sadly I heard no reply. I was so scared and hopeless, but at least I have my Midnight back. Finally, after a while Midnight slowed back to a walk and I dismounted quickly. I was fine and so was Midnight and his beautiful herd. Slowly we made it back to the stables where my mum gr ...
Mustang Mountain - Part 2

We galloped for half an hour wandering over thousands of trails on Mustang Mountain. Soon Black Beauty got tired so we slowed to a walk. Where could he be I thought. I tried to clear my mind, think of where he likes to graze. Suddenly I remembered where I found him on the Rocky t ...
Miles Is Gone But Not Forgotten
20th Dec 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Run Free
Miles was a 12.2hh, black, mixed breed pony at my current riding stables, Loisin. He sadly died November 25th 2010 due to a bad cough and extreme cold. Miles's nickname was 'The Woodpecker' because he used to eat the fence on the outdoor arena. He was a fabulous jumper and lov ...
Mustang Mountain
4th Dec 2010   |   Horse Fiction   |   Run Free
It all started when I ran to the stables to see my horses. I tacked up Lily and we went on a ride down the trails. After half an hour Lily spooked and I fell off. There I saw him, a pure black mustang stallion. He was beautiful. I tried to get close to him, but he galloped away. ...
