Blogfest #3: Five Minutes of Terror

Published by • Feb 4th, 2009 • Category: Blogfest, Guest Bloggers

by Whimsically | My craziest experience was the first time I was in Florida for a winter horse show with my new equitation horse. He had never been to that ring and the change of weather from snow to sun was drastic…



Blogfest #3: Crazy Horse Experiences

Published by • Feb 3rd, 2009 • Category: Blogfest, Junior Blogger Archives

by mustangmane | We’ve all at one point experienced something crazy with a horse. Whether it’s a wild one, scary, or even a jubilant one. I have had crazy ones and figured every rider probably has, so that’s why this topic is good for a Blogfest…



Blogfest #2: Riding the Wild One

Published by • Jul 28th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Horse Girls, Junior Blogger Archives

by mustangmane | Even when I tell this, my heart starts to thud. My excitement gets stirred around, then the dream comes to mind again. I’ve always dreamed of riding a mustang. Bareback. With no one else around. Having just a rope as a bridle to control him…



Blogfest #2: Horse Freak!

Published by • Jul 24th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Horse Girls, Junior Blogger Archives

by Sweetie | The thing everyone who loves horses dreams of is owning a horse. I’ve always loved horses, and I’ve begged my mum to buy me a horse since I was five. As I got older, I realised that it wouldn’t be possible to get a horse. I knew nothing about horses, and it was way too expensive…



Blogfest #2: Realizing Horse Dreams

Published by • Jul 12th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest

In June 2007 Julia, our first ever Junior Blogger, wrote Realizing Your Horse Dreams: How to Get Started. What I love about Julia’s blog is that it goes beyond dreaming to doing. Anyone can dream, but if you never truly BELIEVE in your dream and DO something toward making it a reality, eventually the dream will fade away…



Blogfest #1: The Terrifying Fall

Published by • Jun 30th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Riding Advice

by Stargazer | After lessons at the old farm, my best friend and I would always ride bareback, asking first, of course. So we asked the farm hand if we could ride bareback and she said yes. She told us though, “Don’t ride in the back field.” We went to ride in the area before the back field because someone was having a lesson in the arena…



Blogfest #1: Determination

Published by • Jun 26th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Junior Blogger Archives, Riding Advice

by Sweetie | I’ve been riding for two years, which means I have had approximately 60 lessons as I don’t ride every week. I’ve recently started jumping lessons. I can trot over poles and very small jumps. Here’s a little bit from last week’s jumping lesson…



Blogfest #1: When You Fall

Published by • Jun 24th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Junior Blogger Archives, Riding Advice

by mustangmane | Have any of you experienced getting thrown? Falling from a horse? I know many girls out there that have. And I’ve come to tell you my experience from it…



Blogfest #1: Memories

Published by • Jun 19th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Junior Blogger Archives, Riding Advice

by Syd | I am officially switching barns. My trainer is moving and a couple riding friends and I are going to use this summer (what we have left of it after vacations) to find a new barn. So this ‘blogfest’ blog is going to be about all my funny and interesting stories I’ve had at Gold-Creek. My trainer always joked about how my lessons were exciting and terrifying and there will probably be lots of stories to tell about me, so I’m here to tell a few…



Blogfest #1: A Lesson Learned

Published by • Jun 17th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest, Riding Advice

by Rebecca Shyly | Every year my stables has a mini horse show so the riders can get some show experience without the stress of the busy, high pressure show circuit. We get to sign up for any school horse we want to ride, if we don’t have our own horse. Well, I was late signing up, and the only horse available for a class I wanted to take was a new pony, Roxy. I had never ridden her and from seeing her in the arena, wasn’t sure I even wanted to…
