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 ...

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 ...

Horses Give Us The Wings We Lack

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 ...

Tally was the first horse I had ever ridden. Yeah, I have ridden those little ponies at the zoo, but who hasn't, and it wasn't like she was the first horse I had ever seen, since my grandparents race Standardbreds. There was something about that summer that I will never forge ...

My First USEA Horse Show

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 ...

After these fantastic results, we faced our first hint of a problem. I felt a strange choppiness in Finola’s stride, and suddenly placing her became difficult. The stride I saw didn’t seem quite as good as before, but Finola still made a plan and kept jumping, though perhaps not ...

National Junior Championships – Part Three
22nd Mar 2011   |   Shows and Events   |   Polo the Weirdo
