    Yep x1000

    When I went horse shopping in Spain, the agent laughed at me when I said I wasn't really interested in a gelding. She told me the Spanish horses are very rarely gelded and if they are,...

    I love their work ethic more than anything else. Every single one I've ridden is just so much fun. Sensitive enough to be on the ball, but sensible and I know I'm not going to die while riding! The...

    My PRE mare should be Grand Prix next year :) I'm also working with a Friesian stallion who has most of his Inter 11 work done, but he's a long process to bring back from injury.

    I'm loving the...

    I got my walk to canters on both reins. Every. Single. Time yesterday. No piaffe, no tension just perfect transitions!

    And my 6yr old had his first ride in 4 months and didn't kill me. That's a...

    Update on my Spanish girl

    So I haven't posted in forever, life kind of got in the way of everything. But better late than never!

    In Australia most of the riders learn coming up through the pony club ranks. Most of the time it's on OTTB's or naughty ponies, or basically anything those kids can get their hands on. Keeping a...

    Or after a rough day your DH thinks it's funny to fill up a wine bottle with 7-Up, reseal it and then offer you a glass

    I think that's more borderline torture than barbaric.

    I have a tiny Warmblood mare who I call Munchkin. Cuz compared to all the other horses in the stable she is so tiny!

    My other Warmblood gets called Goober. I have no idea why it just suits him!

    You also can't force or make a horse when you get to the higher levels. The horses do this beacause they enjoy it and can do it. There's been plenty of horses sacked and moved to another job because...

    I live in Australia, so costs may be a bit different. But my husband is bringing 2 horses back up to 2* level this year. Hopefully.

    Our biggest cost is travel. Our large events are generally 12-36...

    I think I remember reading that he was a competitive triathlete. So while not horsey he probably does understand the sacrifices you make for being at the top m

    I had a little TB stallion whom I lovingly referred to as my little sausage horse. He was downhill, long in the back but had a heart of gold. He took everything in his stride and we were working our...

    It's actually more to do with the change in climates. Everything is different. The air, different pollens, different bacteria and strains of virus, different insects. Different feed, different types...

    I generally find horses in Europe a lot better quality for your money. Simply because of the sheer number over there and how much more depth they have in their breeding program. Also they have a lot...

    Kerrits long sleeve shirts are my favourites. But they are pricey.

    You can get just the sleeves to wear with a polo which makes it much cooler!

    My husband rides in a Flyover. It doesn't run small on sizes as his is a 17.5" like his other saddle. I'm 99.9% sure its wool flocked as well.

    Its like carrying around a jockey pad. I love it when...

    I'm not an eventer, but my husband is and he's just gone through the same thing with his mare.

    Talented, all the scope in the world and flashy enough to score well. Stadium and dressage are her...

    He's not a distinguishing horse by any means, plain bay with 2 white socks. But he is branded from a large and very well known stud. So it would only take a few questions to figure out who he is.

    If it was me, I'd seriously consider packing my bags and heading to Europe.

    My new mare is an over achiever. She has this really proud loud when she just throws in random movements. A lot of the time it's from me not asking correctly, but sometimes it's just because she...

    My show pads is when they start looking yellow and don't come up white anymore.
