How Horse Breeds Developed
22nd May 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
It’s hard for many of us to picture a horse in our minds, without seeing a particular breed. And, it’s difficult to believe that there was a time when there was virtually no horse breeds as we know them today. Just a few short centuries ago, if you had asked someone what breed th ...

No Cars Allowed In These Cities
3rd May 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
It’s hard to believe, but there are a few places on the planet where the horse (or close relation) still reigns supreme, and cars are banned. To me, that sounds like a little piece of heaven on earth, and the ideal destination for a vacation - or a permanent residence. The next t ...

Controlling a Strong Horse
6th Apr 2014   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
One of the most common problems many riders have is slowing down a horse that is a puller, or is very forward. The problem may be more noticeable after the horse has had a break, and has stored a little excess energy, like after this long winter we've had, when we haven't been ab ...
