Having Fun Bareback Riding

Tonight was a fabulously playful ride.  It was later in the day and I really wasn’t feeling like “training”. I went through my usual grooming routine and then moved on to  a light lunge session. Lunging lately has become so boring. Athena is so good at it. She picks up each new gait on cue, […]

Easter Party With Your Horse

The holidays are a great break in the routine. They are a time to celebrate, to do something out of the norm and to get a little silly. I love holidays and I especially love it when I get to bring my horse to the party too!  What better way to kick off spring than […]

Lessons I’ve learned from riding in imperfect conditions

With hot and humid weather year round, the fly sheet must be light weight and highly breathable. But, it still needs to provide good protection […]

Subtle Signs of a Tired horse

How do I know when my horse is tired?  This is a common question that is often answered in some variation of… “When you feel you don’t have any horse left.”  Well, that’s great, but what if you have a horse that just seems to keep going no matter what??? I hear you. I have […]
