Saddle pads – The Akton Pad – Tried and Tested

  The AKTON Equestrian Back Pad material was originally designed for the medical community to aid in the prevention and curing of bed sores. The material is not technically a “gel” but a solid viscoelastic polymer that is super soft yet does not leak, flow or bottom out. It has been used successfully in the medical markets for over 40 years world wide, and is now being introduced to the United States equestrian market to offer the same protection to horses. This tissue-like dry polymer assists in reducing shear and evenly...

Planet Fran by Josie King is a Must Read – Tried and Tested!

  Will this be the next  take on the International Velvet Film ?   Well, what can I say about this book, laughs from start to finish following the journey of failed business-woman Fran McBride as she learns to ride to try to realise her dreams of becoming a millionaire.  This is a book that will suit horsey people and non-horsey people, alike, as Josie King takes us along with Fran as she gets to grips with the horsey world.  Those of us who are into riding and eventing get extra laughs at the ‘in’ jokes.  There’s...

Dressage training- Where’s the focus? Horse or rider or both?

Dressage training- Where’s the focus? Horse or rider or both?

  I work with hundreds of riders all over the country from intro to Grand Prix and if I were to calculate the percentage of riders taking care of themselves in terms of physio, massage, fitness training etc and the horse equivalent, I can tell you that the majority of horses get the full works of treatment and very few riders dedicate the same to themselves. We are often injured, we work long hours (usually to pay for the treatments of said 4 legged friends!) often work is physical, we get thrown off – we get back on! We break a...

Aimee Penny heads from Blair to Blenheim

  HIRONDELLE DE FRIBOIS B and Aimee Penny finished 17th in the CIC*** at Blair Castle a few weeks ago, Ssangyong Blenheim Palace is now their next step but this time they are entered in the CCI***.

Wayne Garrick – Professional Rider

  I specialise in difficult horses and believe that my keep it simple and common sense approach works well with horses with a difficult past, I have backed some very difficult horses, some of which have gone out into the “real world” and have qualified for regionals in dressage and other disciplines. It is a gift that I have and one that I want to share as I think many horses are written off without a proper chance.  I believe that a happy atmosphere makes for a happy horse, that has been my goal and finally, I have found it...

The last and final day of Burghley – Price on the Podium

Image credit to Burghley Horse Trials – all rights reserved New Zealand’s Tim Price retained the lead he held after cross country to take the title at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials with Ringwood Sky Boy. Fifth here last year, the pair produced one of just eight clear show jumping rounds to complete on 27.3, ahead of last year’s winners Great Britain’s Oliver Townend with Ballaghmor Class on 31.9 and New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson and Swallow Springs on 32.1. 2018 has been a year to remember for Tim and his wife Jonelle as this...

Burghley’s Cross country was a true 4* course , It was all change on the leaderboard!!

  Above image courtesy of Burghley Horse Trials – All Rights Reserved The glorious day drew in the crowds to watch a spectacular day of cross country and what a day it was to be!! After walking the course, a very fun course drive in one of the lovely Land Rovers and a walk out on course with rider Ben Way I was super excited to see how the course rode  and which riders would take direct routes and long routes at certain combinations. Due to the riders we were following going later in the day it gave me a good chance to watch a lot...

We caught up with Ben Way and Galley Light after the Cross Country

To say I wasn’t biting my nails when Ben left the start box would be a lie after watching so many great riders have run out and stops throughout the day before Ben ran was enough to make me wonder why riders want to tackle this type of course!. In all honesty I know exactly why I mean why wouldn’t you want to go to a beautiful estate and complete one of the biggest courses in the world! Just to even get to Burghley is a feat in itself and we must remember that when things don’t go the way you would have liked. Ben and Galley...
