Long Distance Horse Ownership

My horse always been an easy keeper, but over the last year I’ve noticed that she’s a little leaner than usual. Every winter, with less work to do and full access to a round bale, she’s usually on the plump side. But, the last two winters, that hasn’t been the case. ...

We loved our perfect Moo. The thought of losing him - it never even crossed our minds. It was one of those things too terrible to think that it might ever happen to you. One of those ‘I can’t even imagine what it would be like’ things. He was my everything. My ticket to all my go ...

Where Horses Should Not Be
9th Mar 2019   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Horses look beautiful in pastures and they’re easy to admire as they lean over a stall door to greet us. We admire them as they work in farm fields or clearing brush, stand sedately on streets to control crowds or in the show ring. But there are a few places we probably don’t wan ...

After the setback with Moo’s suspensory ligament, I pretty much decided that 2017 was going to be a write-off. Because we have so few events, because I’d been so cautious in protecting both Moo’s confidence and my own, the idea of trying to actually achieve anything in only the s ...
