Top Ten Similarities Between Your Horse and the Easter Bunny
22nd Apr 2017   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
With Easter just around the corner, we all have a lot of questions in our minds. How many Easter Eggs will I get? Where will they be hiding? Where can I hide them where my siblings can never, ever (ever) find them? Did we really find all the eggs from last year, and if I find one ...
Horse Riding on Private Property
20th Apr 2017   |   General   |   Winniefield Park

Horse Saddle Slip - Stabilize Your Saddle
18th Apr 2017   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
One of the most common problems pony riders have is that the saddle slides forward. Some ponies are almost teardrop shaped, with large round barrels and narrow fronts. It doesn’t help that it’s almost impossible to keep them slender. Getting fat just inhaling the fragrance of gra ...

If Horses Were Celebrities

Horse and Hound recently released a quiz which tells you, based on a series of questions, what celebrity your horse would be if he was a human. Unsurprisingly, my own Moonfire would probably be Kanye West. This got me thinking, if different types of horses were celebrities, which ...

How Do Horses Think
1st Apr 2017   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
I once had a non-horse person ask me if horses could think. The question surprised me because I’ve never considered that they couldn’t. Do they think like humans? Probably not. They don’t need to. The can’t read, their eyes can’t focus on print and they can’t tap on a keyboard be ...

Ponies For Adults
