Saddle pads and blankets can be knitted or crocheted in any size, shape and color. A method called felting, where natural fibre knitted or crocheted items are washed, rolled, pounded and so the fibres shrink together and make a thick mat has long been used to make these types of ...
Keeping and Using Stallions
10th Jun 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
There are a lot of myths about stallions. Some people believe only men should handle stallions. Many think they are more majestic, noble and wild than mares and geldings. Most of us take for granted that you don’t turn a stallion out with another stallion. And some think they nee ...

Horse Trailer Accidents
3rd Jun 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Horse Trailer accidents really scare me. I’ve seen horses hung over the chest bars, cast upside down on the floors, stuck halfway out the human doors, hung up in tie ropes and I know of at least one that climbed out the side window and landed on the highway. ...

Horse Herd Behavior
22nd May 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Horses live in the wild in herds, so for the most part, any combination works. But there are people who believe that a group of mares or geldings should be kept separate from each other to prevent squabbles. That may be true in some of cases, but in my experience, and what I’ve w ...

Horse Manure Crisis

We hear a lot about global climate change caused by the fossil fuels we use to heat our homes, cook our food and power our vehicles. So it wouldn’t be strange that we long for simpler times when such problems (if you believe there is one) didn’t exist. Many people feel if we coul ...

Glamorous Horse Stables

Equestrian and Horse Planners

How do you plan your time? Do you buy a dollar store notebook or do you prefer the space and feel of a Moleskine sketchbook? Or, do you head to a craft supply store and pick up an Erin Condren or Happy Planner. One thing is for sure, very few planners are made with horse owners i ...

Favorite Horse Gear
12th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
When it comes to horse equipment, I’m a bit of a minimalist. I won’t buy or keep anything I don’t need. I think it comes from seeing other people’s tack rooms and back porches stuffed with dusty tack they don’t use. So I tend to keep and use only things that I really like, or tha ...

Spring is Dirty

Spring seems to have arrived early where I live. I’m not fooled. Just because the snowdrops are poking their heads up and the robins have returned doesn’t mean winter is over. The horse owner’s sure sign of spring is stroking your horse and ending up with a mitten covered in shed ...
Horse Body Language

When we think of communication, we think of talking, or at least making noises. We humans are a noisy bunch, and talking is most often our chosen way of making our thoughts known. Yes, we use body language but it often isn’t conscious. Horses however, are more likely to use body ...
What is So Cool About Horse Sweat
14th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
A long time ago, we believed that if a horse became lathered, it was a sign the horse was not fit. As it turns out, all horses will lather if they sweat a lot due to stress or hard work. A young or unfit horse probably just starts to sweat sooner. You’ll often see foam build up b ...
