Spring is Dirty
28th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Spring seems to have arrived early where I live. I’m not fooled. Just because the snowdrops are poking their heads up and the robins have returned doesn’t mean winter is over. The horse owner’s sure sign of spring is stroking your horse and ending up with a mitten covered in shed ...

Horse Body Language
24th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park

What is So Cool About Horse Sweat
14th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
A long time ago, we believed that if a horse became lathered, it was a sign the horse was not fit. As it turns out, all horses will lather if they sweat a lot due to stress or hard work. A young or unfit horse probably just starts to sweat sooner. You’ll often see foam build up b ...

A Fall By Another Name

Every rider, no matter how skilled, no matter how well trained their horse is, no matter how old, how confident, how secure in saddle or bareback, or how sticky your pants, at some point... you will fall off. You will never become immune to falling off. There is no sure way to ma ...

When to Pay Up for Horse Stuff
7th Feb 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Hoof clippers are one example. My last two pairs of hoof clippers came from the local farm supply store. They cost about the same as one hoof trim. Sounds like a good deal if I can do a DIY hoof trim, right? But those bargain hoof nippers caused me nothing but anguish. ...
