PonyBox News Trending
Who is Olop, you ask? Well, that is my new nickname for Polo. Read on, and I daresay the reason will soon become clear. Those of you who know me will surely know that I am somewhat ‘lacking’ in the sanity division. In ...

Horse Manure Crisis
9th May 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
We hear a lot about global climate change caused by the fossil fuels we use to heat our homes, cook our food and power our vehicles. So it wouldn’t be strange that we long for simpler times when such problems (if you believe there is one) didn’t exist. Many people feel if we coul ...

Glamorous Horse Stables
2nd May 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
A nicely appointed stable is a wonderful place to keep horses. Wash stalls, viewing areas and lounges, and other amenities are convenient although many of us do just fine with much less. There are stables that go beyond well appointed to downright glamorous. Here are just a few. ...

How to Improve Your Intelligence and Other News
28th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Horseback riding may improve your child’s intelligence. So says a study reported in a Country Living Magazine. The study, done by the Tokyo University of Agriculture, claims that the vibrations created by the horse while riding benefit the brain. Does this means those of us who r ...
I Have Wheelbarrow Skillz
24th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Advanced wheelbarrow handling takes practice, and I’d like to think a good dose of natural talent. After years of perfecting my art, I can competently negotiate bumpy terrain, narrow doors, inclines and declines, sharp corners and high loads. There are techniques for handling hay ...

Equestrian and Horse Planners
18th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
How do you plan your time? Do you buy a dollar store notebook or do you prefer the space and feel of a Moleskine sketchbook? Or, do you head to a craft supply store and pick up an Erin Condren or Happy Planner. One thing is for sure, very few planners are made with horse owners i ...
Meeting Magic Mike
15th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
My first meeting with Mike was something of a serendipity; one very fortunate but unequivocally unplanned coincidence. And a more fitting set of circumstances I truly can’t imagine, since the very horse around whom this meeting came together, is one Vanree De Niro. Son of ‘Sirand ...

Favorite Horse Gear
12th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
When it comes to horse equipment, I’m a bit of a minimalist. I won’t buy or keep anything I don’t need. I think it comes from seeing other people’s tack rooms and back porches stuffed with dusty tack they don’t use. So I tend to keep and use only things that I really like, or tha ...
Security at Horse Events
7th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Horse show season is ramping up for many of us. Especially if you are in North America, you’ll be noticing the show schedules being posted and perhaps lists of trail rides and other events you might be interested in attending. Although preparing for a competition of any type, or ...
Wild Horses Safe For now
5th Apr 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
There is good news, at least temporarily, for those who are against the culling of wild horses in the American west. Last July, the House Appropriations Committee voted to remove from Interior Department budget passages outlining the banning of wild horse culls. Since then, wild ...

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
When we think of communication, we think of talking, or at least making noises. We humans are a noisy bunch, and talking is most often our chosen way of making our thoughts known. Yes, we use body language but it often isn’t conscious. Horses however, are more likely to use body ...
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 ...
Making Money with Horses
7th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
I was once told by a woman that as a youth rider, a company that specialized in equine health products used to throw money at her when she competed. Apparently for her, being sponsored by this company was the only way she could afford to compete with her horse. ...

No Wild Horses Left
4th Mar 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
Pretty much everything written about Przewalski's horses in the last few decades has claimed that they were the last true wild horses on the planet. We call many horse populations wild such as Mustangs, but they are feral, descending from domestic horses that were lost, stolen or ...

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. ...
Horse Stuff Collections
3rd Feb 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
If you love horses, chances are there is a little collection of horse ‘stuff’ in your home. You might have paintings, books or a throw on your couch with a horse on it. Some people take that ‘stuff’ to the next level and become full out collectors. Here’s a look at just a few thi ...
Strange Horse Laws
2nd Feb 2018   |   General   |   Winniefield Park
In several states, it’s apparently illegal to bring a horse or mule into specific buildings. For example, in Cripple Creek, Colorado, you can't bring a horse into the ground floor of any building. Would the second or third floor be okay? In South Dakota, horses are not allowed in ...

A Horse By Another Name

Top Horse Stories of 2017

How Long Does it Take to Back a Horse
30th Dec 2017   |   General   |   Polo the Weirdo
We all know that backing a young horse is not for the weak-hearted. Horses struggle with new experiences at the best of times, and often backing involves throwing a thousand new questions at once at a young horse not yet equipped to deal with them. This does not always end well. ...
