21st Oct 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
It was toward the end of 2006 that Bronze started graded jumping. I managed to convince him that he could in fact keep more than one hoof off the ground at any one time, and he began to jump his fences properly, rather than stepping over them. Unfortunately, with this improvement ...
Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 6
13th Oct 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
He was nearly five years old now – a late age to geld – so he was left with the thick neck and muscular build of a stallion, which of course was delightful. He was always an eye-catching horse, and attracted attention wherever I took him. Many people stubbornly refused to believe ...
Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 5
6th Oct 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
Fill a plastic bottle with stones, and shake it. This, according to our neighbour, would make Bronze ‘Go’. So, the next day I mounted Bronze – bottle in hand – and hoped desperately for results. I booted him into a walk, then tried to make him trot. When he wouldn’t, I raised the ...
My Journey With Horses And Barrel Racing
4th Oct 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   BarrelRacersLove
My journey with my horses was a tough one. I would have never thought that I would be as far as I am today with horses. I have been around horses all my life, I grew up on a horse ranch, but I didn't always have the attachment to horses as I do now. From the ages four through sev ...
Dream Horse
3rd Oct 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   FreeRein
Everyone has that dream horse. That jet black stallion, the horse that will let no one but you touch him. That horse from fantasy books and novels that always seemed to gallop its way into your dreams. I always had that dream, the same one every night after my buckskin mare Sandy ...

Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 3
24th Sep 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
I looked into his gentle brown eyes, and I knew that I had found my horse. Or rather, I suppose, that he had found me. This was my first meeting with Bronze. My mother was besotted with him from the second she saw him, so we hurried to Alfie’s office to ask who the stallion wa ...
Wild Spirits - The Beauty Within
18th Sep 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Moose
My horse story isn’t the average story. It isn’t the repetitive story of a jumper who refused the jump or an accident during the show or the old horse that finally died or the “she was the greatest horse in the world” story. My story is different. All my life, I have had a way ...
Against All Odds - The Story of Bronze - Part 2
16th Sep 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
Suddenly, from amongst the herd of stallions, one came charging toward me. He was a huge, bright bay creature – standing at least a hand over any of the others, and double the size of most in bulk. He hardly seemed like a Thoroughbred at all. Seeing this tank of a horse bearin ...

As some of you know, in late February I made the change from a 17 year old Appaloosa mare named Poppy to a 4 year old Appendix gelding named Dino. For the first few months it was hard, I didn't think I would ever make it to a show by how slow we were progressing. But each time ...
