  1. Dressage Test

    Yayyyy! Well done Amanda and Sonia. What a wonderful thing to be able to do together. You are so right to be proud! Congratulations Champ!
  2. Tying a horse up

    I have seen my horses test things out a heap of times. "Is that loose enough?? "Can just get my nose to that bit of grass?", or maybe "Can I annoy the horse tied up at the float next to me". I like Lorraine's explanation too, their routine helps out immesly. Last year one of mine got a fright, we were away from home out of his natural environment, and because the tie points on my float are too low, he was able to get enough power behind him to break the huge brass snap! Thus the importance of getting the NO Yield really good! Its so important for them to be able to find comfort quickly if they are at all frightened and if they pull back, once they feel the pressure of the halter come forward and release off it rather than brace against it. Practicing no yield while they are just looped around a tie point while you hold the end of the lead is a great way to start helping them out with their emotions! Have fun with it... Im about to embark on a journey with my snap buster... We will be working on his emotions all the way!
  3. Congratulations Donna & Betty!

  5. The World's Biggest Play Day

    Students across NSW will join the WBPD celebrations via distance... The thousands of kilometres between us or the drought aren't enough to keep us from celebrating our sense of community spirit and what QS means to us. We are looking forward to sharing photos and stories of our day with each other and the rest of the QS family. There are some great prizes that will be announced on Saturday evening once all the photos are in....

  8. Brace when asking for canter

    Hi Luna, How are you? Wonderful to see how you are progressing through Level 2. It can leave us scratching our heads at times when we can't work something out or loose something we once had can't it! If Darcy has some memory of what it was like to transition up to a canter while he was sore he may be anticipating the discomfort in the transition thus bracing. Does he do it if you post up to the canter? Give that a try and see how you go?

    How exciting for Jack!
  10. Never say never...

    Who'da thought! Im so excited for you Sophie! And for Yogi. Isn't it a great journey, so much to learn and enjoy along the way. We stretch ourselves a little bit at a time, and before you know it we look back and see what we have achieved and sometimes get a shock! And all in 7 months... I also forward to seeing what you have achieved in 7 months... have fun along the wayxxx

  13. Landing Counterflexed

    Hiya Luna, Great idea to have a look at it at the practice day on the weekend. I bet your not the only one that will be interested by it... In the mean time try not to focus on it too much, Darcy is just doing his best, if we focus too much on one thing we can dull them out, confuse them and they will loose their desire. Keep moving forward ticking of your homework cards and I bet before you know it, hell be doing it.... Your doing a great job. Cheers Jill.

    Hi Tanya and Fiona, I had a message ready to go here and it did the disappearing trick. It has been a while hasn't it! I have worked with Peter from afar and I can't recommend him enough. He is so generous with his skills and knowledge. Good luck with it.... barefoot is def the way to go. Regards Jill. QS Outback.
