If Horses Went To School
20th Mar 2017   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
Have you ever wondered what the world would be like if horses went to school to learn how to be ridden, instead of just being backed by their owners or trainers? And I don’t mean ‘school’ as in spelling farms or professional training facilities. I mean ‘school’ as in Mean Girls o ...
Fun Riding A Horse Without Owners Permission
18th Mar 2017   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
Children, experience has taught me, are generally reckless and have not yet learned respect for other people’s property, nor any regard for the consequences to their actions. And since riding schools are notoriously buzzing like a stick-poked bee hive with these little demons, it ...

Your Horses Valentines Plan
15th Feb 2017   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
Horses spend the majority of their lives eating, snoozing, and occasionally spooking at their own farts. With such a blissful existence, it’s pretty difficult to imagine how a horse could make things any more romantic. Still, when they pull out all the stops, some horses can be g ...
Saving the Marwari
6th Feb 2017   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
At the apex of their history, it’s said that there were enough of these horses to mount a calvary of 50,000. But, after the British came to India, other breeds were introduced and the Marwari became a victim of colonialism. Careless breeding practices, difficult economic times fo ...

The largest joints in your horse’s legs are the hock joints. Although they are half way up the horse’s back legs they aren’t at all like the knees we have about half way up our own legs. They are more like our ankles and they act as both a shock absorber and to extend and contrac ...
