The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 5
12th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
There were just two options - A second surgery to remove the plate that had been put in just eight months earlier, or... Putting Choc down. All at once, I was thrown back into a nightmare from which I had barely awoken. Had we really come all this way for nothing? The answer, whe ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 4
10th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
The next few weeks of her recovery were full of ups and downs. The wound would begin to heal, and then infection would set in again, and once more Iíd have to wait, scared to death, while they tested to see if it was in the joint. And so it went on, for months on end, with Choc w ...

The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 3
8th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
To me, putting Choc down was never an option. For a horse so full of life, and so eager and ready to take on her next challenge and fight to keep living, it would just be wrong to take away that chance. This, of course, left two options. The stable rest would have been far, far c ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 2
6th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
When I got to Choc, she seemed relatively unscathed. There was barely a mark on her elbow, just one little cut, and yet she could barely put weight on it when she walked. The vet had been already, and said to monitor her for two days, and then take her to be X-rayed if there was ...

5th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
So I promised that I would write an article if Choc ever recovered from her surgery, and two gruelling years later, here we are. It has been a bumpy road with a lot of twists and turns along the way, but in the end, looking back at all the tears and turmoil, I can honestly say th ...

The snow - or so she thought it was snow - falls onto the ground like a blanket. The truth was that it was ash, pure, snow white ash that fell on her and all around her. Sakia looks up at the sky, dotted with white, and then looks out into the once immense forest. The trees that ...

Wrong Horse, Wrong Time - Part Two
14th Jul 2013   |   Horse Stories   |   Winniefield Park
Mark's spooks and bad behaviour were adding up to a horse that I didn't have time to deal with. With two small kids I didn't have the time to re-school and re-train every time I rode. I wanted my horse time to be relaxing, and it was becoming increasingly stressful. I began to pl ...
Wrong Horse, Wrong Time - Part One
