Finola - The Comeback
17th Sep 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Polo the Weirdo
Finola’s rehabilitation process was a long one. Weeks upon weeks of roadwork to strengthen her tendons and build muscles, and still weeks more of gentle schooling until she was ready to really hit the flatwork hard. At the beginning of the year, Finola had come back relatively un ...
Our First Horse Show Together
26th Aug 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
I've been horse crazy for as long as my parents can remember. I used to love going to shows to watch all the pretty horses, which sadly for them, lead to a new dream of not only working with, but owning a horse and eventually showing. I had been lucky enough to participate in a s ...

24th Jul 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Oak Valley
When most people talk about equestrian sports they think of the well-known disciplines such as dressage, jumping, reining, and cross country. Many people forget about vaulting and some have never even heard of it before. The most common question I get asked is "What is vaulting?” ...

My Dream of Showing Was Coming True
7th Jul 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Pdeletedpp
All I thought about when I was six was horses. I dreamed of galloping through a field in the country at sunset. I prayed that I would have my own horse. This is the story of myself and my life with horses. I asked my Mom if I could learn how to ride and I had to use a lot of ...

During my years in high school we had a program through my schools agriculture department called FFA, which was once known as Future Farmers of America. Although that name isn't used anymore because it let to the false belief that FFA was just for farmers. During my senior year I ...
The Nature of the Crazy Eventer
26th Jan 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Polo the Weirdo
Those of you who event, or know somebody who events, will surely agree with me when I say that the sport defies all logic. It’s like trying to take a convertible around a 4X4 track, or going skydiving using a plastic packet as a parachute. It is completely nonsensical, no matter ...
Should Equestrian Vaulters Be Required To Wear Helmets?
23rd Jan 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Oak Valley
One of the main questions in vaulting is why don't we wear helmets? The answer is that all of the experts, world wide, confer that not only do helmets not improve safety; they can actually increase the risk of injury. The reason helmets are not considered to improve safety is ...

The Nature of the Not-So-Sane Show Rider
19th Jan 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   Polo the Weirdo
Anybody who has done showing must know that you can’t be completely sane to choose to wake up at 4AM, and work for a good three hours getting your horse to look its best for a few boring minutes, just so that somebody else can judge it. There is absolutely no chance that it is wo ...

Owning a Racehorse – End of Season Update!
7th Nov 2011   |   Shows and Events   |   mosquito
I was sure it was going to be her day. After all, she’d run close to winning most of her previous races, and the horses that beat her were now out of maiden races (races for horses that have never won a race). That left us with just the fillies she’d beaten before, so today had t ...
My First Show Experience

Horses Give Us The Wings We Lack
21st Sep 2011   |   Shows and Events   |   Standardbred
Have you had that feeling of pure helplessness? If you have you know that it's very unsettling. Well last weekend I had a horse show on a horse I had only ridden a few times. His name is Stink. At the show I was scared because he isn't my horse and his owner who is my riding c ...
National Junior Championships – Part Six
20th Aug 2011   |   Shows and Events   |   Polo the Weirdo
I closed my legs around her sides, waiting for the beautiful feeling of harmony I’d felt over the two previous jumps. At the last minute, Finola seemed to lose heart, and she slammed on brakes. She skidded into the base of the jump – hocks nearly touching the ground – and ende ...

James came up to me and said “OK, I want you to keep your eyes up, sit up, and put your leg on all the way to the jumps. If she doesn’t listen to your leg the first time go right to your stick and give her a tap. If she doesn’t listen to that give her a smack and growl at her.” I ...
