Be Thankful

Published by • Nov 26th, 2009 • Category: Gift Horse, Guest Bloggers

by Carolina Cowgirl | What used to be warm weather is now cold. What used to be short sleeves are now long. And what used to be long days are now short. There is no snow on the ground, but I’m certain there’s leaves. It’s autumn and it can only lead to one thing — Thanksgiving…



The Benefits of Hard Work

Published by • Nov 25th, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Horse Work

by Raven | To lease Mickey, I work for his owner fifteen hours a month. That means going to the ranch every Wednesday, working four hours doing stuff like feeding horses, grooming horses, scrubbing out feed buckets, fixing fences…



Be Wary for Winter

Published by • Nov 23rd, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Horse Advice

by DianaLUV♥ | Everybody loves winter, even if they only love one thing! Whether it’s warming your toes by the fire after mucking out stalls, drinking a steaming mug of hot chocolate after a freezing ride on your horse or pony, saddling your horse or pony up for a wondrous winter ride, or the smidgen of hope that Santa Claus will leave a very special present under the tree…



Does That Taste Good?

Published by • Nov 22nd, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Horse Advice

by Toppyrocks | Ever wondered why horses don’t go around eating poisonous plants all the time? That’s because they have a different sense of taste than humans. The food that’s good for them usually tastes good to them, while the bad stuff usually tastes nasty…



Loping

Published by • Nov 18th, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Non-Fiction

by Miss Morgan | The feeling of flying, that moment when you feel like you’re in a dream. Nothing else is important. Your hair is trying desperately to break free of your ponytail. The thud of hooves in sync with the beat of your heart fills your ears. The world around you is only faint to your consciousness…



Timetable Terrors

Published by • Nov 12th, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Horse Advice

by DianaLUV♥ | If you own/rent a horse and you have a super busy timetable, you can find it hard to squeeze things in. I am lucky enough to have parents who will give up time on Saturday mornings to bring me to my riding lesson, where I attempt to fill my desire of horses for the week ahead. If you have long school hours and extra activities (besides horse riding), then you may want to take a look at how to fit in an hour and a half or more for spending time with that special animal…

Horsemanship

Published by • Nov 9th, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Horse Girls

by Raven | I’ve never been a really outgoing person. I don’t like looking strangers in the eye and I sit by myself a lot at meetings. I don’t talk a lot to people I don’t know well and I tend to be really shy. I mostly let others take charge and I’m content to follow. Then I started doing horses…



Can’t Live Without Horses

Published by • Nov 3rd, 2009 • Category: Gift Horse, Guest Bloggers

by Carolina Cowgirl | There are some things you can’t just live without. Of course there is food and water, clothes, and knowledge. But there are other things too. Things that are such a big part of your life and you just don’t think you can live without them. These things are horses…



All Those Ribbons

Published by • Nov 1st, 2009 • Category: Guest Bloggers, Showing & Sport

by Michelle | In the world of horses, shows can prove to be a very important part in any equestrian’s career. Though always winning is not necessary, it can never hurt to get a few blue ribbons. This blog is mainly for the girls competing at their first show, which is almost always a simple dressage test. In other words, this is a guide to perform that training level test like you own it…
