  1. Bringing a horse back into work - your methods?

    Just curious as to how different people approach bringing a horse back into work after a reasonable amount of time off. I've been given a six-year-old to bring back and sell on for the owner of my...

    Not sure if this is the same pairing that was referred to but Mark Kyle's Athens Olympics partner Drunken Disorderly (who I was lucky enough to ride over the summer! :)) is occasionally ridden by his...

    I apologise in advance for what may become the ultimate digression!!

    I'm SO glad that Mary King was brought up - she is always my go-to for inspiration when my goals begin to seem entirely...

    Boyd is still number one in my book, although I am starting to see the appeal of Andrew. He let me touch his medal at the Olympics.

    Unfortunately, that's not a euphemism.

    Mark Todd's 'Training the Cross-Country Horse' (I believe that's the name, anyway!) is very good. Don't be put off by the fact that it's about 21 years old - much of the information still holds true.

    Enjoy Badminton, by the way - have you been to one of the UK four-stars before? They are unreal! If the horse simulator is there you MUST give it a go!

    Thank you! I work for the Fox-Pitts so I'm probably being horribly unsporting by saying this but I SO hope that Andrew wins Rolex - imagine the publicity that eventing would get! Our sport is so in...
  9. The British season starts tomorrow - mega anticipation!

    An Eventful Life have been lovely enough to trust me with writing some things for their site; my first piece (published this evening!) is about the exciting season ahead as the Grand Slam is fought...

    RIP Bounce. I learned a lot from that horse, and he has produced some really lovely offspring. :(

    Colour certainly wouldn't put me off. As an UL prospect/resale horse, however, those pasterns might cause me to think twice. Really like the look of him otherwise though, and I suppose you can't beat...

    So many riders and horses I could list but I'll try to keep it to the ones who, to me, have achieved 'legend' status...

    Not just that, but there are SO many skills that simply wouldn't be put into a lesson programme that you learn as a WS - and the myriad of learning opportunities that you can jump on as a WS often...

    I agree that for the right person - ie, someone hard-working who is both dedicated to learning AND has the money in their bank account (through saving up or simply having solid financial resources) -...

    I was a working student for Phyllis when her barn burnt down (also, incidentally, when Boyd's new horse was just a shaggy two-year-old out in the field!). She is above and beyond, a class act.

    Another vote for K.M. Peyton, and I definitely enjoyed the Saddle Club/Thoroughbred books at that age, too. Sandy Lane Stables were fun when I was a bit younger although the writing isn't fantastic -...

    Pictures! :D She sounds wonderful - and very much a well-started OTTB! I've gotten on a few very green trackies that have been much the same way - it's a lovely feeling! And that fugly thing will...

    Thoroughbreds are the absolute best; I find myself singing their praises to EVERYONE. Of course, it's bad to generalise - especially with horses - but for the most part, all the TBs, off-the-track or...

    Have definitely been there. When I was a working student I was really fond of all (well, most) of the horses I worked with, but one came in for sale that was really it for me. I spent tons of time...

    I really like my Heritage gloves. They're super lightweight and I haven't had any issues with color bleeding (besides a couple marks on my hands when they were very new).
