Jumping Ponies

  • by

This week I revisited Ella and her cracking jumping pony Red.Now when I say Red is rather keen, I mean he is a very fast jumping machine sort of pony, and loves his job. When I first met Red and Ella some months ago when they were a very new partnership. Ella wanted a more gentle and educational bit for schooling, rather than a ‘brakes’ bit that she needs for… Read More »Jumping Ponies

Training the Young Horse

I am often asked to see young horses who are just beginning their education.  A lot of horses have been backed, ridden away and are now ready to move forward with their training.  When starting your young horses education it is vital that the correct bit is chosen. If the horse is started in an uncomfortable bit they will learn how to evade it from the very beginning.  Sometimes I see… Read More »Training the Young Horse

Bits and Hands

  • by

Do you know how much the bit and your hands influence the reactions from the horse when you ride?  When we tack up, and then get on board, do we really think about what the horse feels when we take up the reins, how the bit feels in the horses mouth? As soon as your hands touch the reins, that pressure acts on the most sensitive part of the horse as… Read More »Bits and Hands

Cob Dressage Superstars

  • by

I met another Arthur this week, a rather dashingly handsome dappled grey cob and his lovely owner Charlotte. They are training at medium level dressage, and are doing great. However, Arthur has started to realise he can lean downwards on his loose ring bit, fix his jaw and ignore the rein aids when he feels like it. This ends up with Charlotte feeling that she has to ask him three… Read More »Cob Dressage Superstars
