Decided to go for a Samshield

But the question is; a blue or a brown one ?
If I take blue one, I’ll use my now competition helmet for training and if I take a brown one I’ll use that one for training

6, 9, 27, 33 :)

6:If you could try any discipline on any horse for 1 day, what discipline and what horse?
Eventing :’) Don’t know which horse since I don’t know any horses in that circuit ;)

9:One of your goals for the next year, horse-wise.
The European Young Rider Championships. My chances to go this year are getting smaller and smaller and I don’t feel like me and George are ready for it since our scores are not that consistent.

27:Favourite things about the barn you’re at?
Since it’s my own barn, I like the quietness. You can train and do whatever you want without getting comments all the time

33:Do you get nervous before shows?
Sometimes I would rather piss my pants than enter the arena ;’) So yes I get really nervous

1:A time you’ve been scared for your life on horseback.
About 3y ago, I went to try out horses. I sat on this mare and when I took up my reins she suddenly took off with me started bucking like crazy and rearing. At one point she reared up that high that I thought she would fall over …

7:3 tumblr horses you’d want to ride/meet the most?
Winny from Jamie (letterperfectmxk)
Marbz from Stephanie (journeytogoals)
Val from Stephanie (dressagedawg)

16:3 things you need to work on, riding-wise?
-loosen my reins more so I give George more freedom
-details in my test
-my hands! They need to be more closer to the saddle

35:Last time you fell off? What happened? Were you hurt?
3;5y ago I slipped with my showjumping pony. She broke her knee while I had bruises on my arms and back. I had to put her down because she was 24 and there was a 90% chance it wouldn’t heal, and if it would heal the question was; Will she have no pain? Up to now I still have problems with my back. It cracks all the time and if George tends to be a bit out of control and decides to buck I get a lot of pain in my back and can’t really sit straight up anymore :)

Thanks! x

I was at Carmen’s today to train and we rode the Team test just for practice.
I’m sorry about the yelling at the beginning but all the dogs were running in the arena and they wouldn’t listen :’)

His trot looks fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were riding that trot line too today…I just need to steal George’s activity for my volte!

He still needs to be more active :) In the beginning of the lesson he was always losing his activity and it looked I was doing it in passage. 
It’s a fun line! You get everything at once and need to be prepared :’) I like the trot lines from the Individual test as wel! ^^

The individual lines are so cool but we hardly ever ride them here!
Favourite trot line: the I1 - it’s awesome!!!

Yeah they’re cool indeed :)

Cody’s first time in a double bridle! He was a really good boy (flash is there just to keep his mouth quiet starting out)

Anonymous asked:
Hi i love your blog and need some advice. Im starting to train a 5 year old draft cross. He only has walk trot canter, simple lead change and started working over ground poles. Any tips or exercises to start out?

Hi thanks love!

Well you already started well with the ground poles. It’s fun and different. You can also add changes to the ground poles! You can pot them in a half circle or put one side of the pole on something higher.
Also make sure your basics are correct like when you ride a circle, make sure he doesn’t try to escape to the out- or inside.

I also would lunge him from time to time, just so he can lose his energy without you risking your life. Use side reins but don’t put them on too tight. If they are deep, they are more relaxed and that’s very important with a young horse (that’s what they always taught me!)

Furthermore I can’t add more tips. The youngest horse I’ve ridden was six and did know quite a lot already when I rode him so yeah.
I can only say make sure you have someone who can help you at any time.


WTf ?!

I posted my showjumping material online (second hand website) about 3h ago and I’ve already got 2 people who are really interested.
One is coming Sunday to see if he likes and if he do, he’ll pay right away and take it with him
BUT I also have someone who’s willing to pay more, but I already promised the other person … 

I’m stuck between buying a Samshield or a Antares helmet

What’s your opinion on both helmets ?

This is horse-tripping.  It is considered a great sport at rodeos across the US and Mexico.  Fast-moving horses like Thoroughbreds off the track and Arabians are bought cheap at livestock auctions and “rented out” for these events.  

Horses are fast-moving animals with a high center of gravity and long, fragile legs.  Tripping ends in leg injuries, shattered limbs, dislocations, a rifle bullet out in back where the crowd can’t see.

Before it was made illegal in California one feedlot owner leased out 75-100 horses a season to local events, the last year only 2 horses survived to the end.

Horses sent on trucks to slaughter houses in Mexico are often diverted to these events, where they will go through this until they are too injured to run or until it’s time to get back onto the truck.

Raise your voice.  Let it be known that horse tripping and slaughter are not acceptable.

If you support this in any way then you can just hop right off my blog and go fuck yourself with a cactus.

yeah….

I’m always shocked to hear this is STILL a thing. 

This is disgusting.

This should be illegal in all countries all around the world! 
And people who still do it should be treated the same way as they treated the horses and you’ll hear them begging for mercy
