    Natural Worming

    Resistance to antibiotics is a huge problem not only in relation to worms but other bugs as well due to the overuse of these drugs - so I lean towards alternatives, diet and FEC to reduce my horses worm burden. The article states the trial of BioWorma has been over 20 years with rigorous testing to be safe and is best when used in a rotational grazing system...so could be another tool in combination to the approach of our horses health care and pasture managment.

    2017 Reflection

    Although a review of my horsemanship achievements 2017 seems to show only '1 more blue tick' - but oh how much has changed in my confidence and attitude to getting these ridden challenges of L2 better My 'feel' is improving and speed vs impulsion with Bailey is becoming clearer, trying to think/use my seat more and my hands less plus taking the time to hurry up and slow down my offer and looking more for the try towards comfort, rather than away from pressure - are all things I am building another layer on. Thanks Mel and my QS study buddies, I am looking forward to more learning and fun in 2018 gotta my

    L2 with Bailey - September

    it might as well rain until September.... and it feels as tho it has the weather has been less than pleasant through out August to say the least, hence no blog post as nothing was really achieved! So spring has now sprung and time to 'grow' a bit more in our horsemanship journey, pull out the excuses (like weeds), nurture the brain - lesson with Mel as opposed to layering with s*%# - and encourage new buds of experiences and learning With this in mind Bailey and I are looking at L3 A2 - contact with flank rope assignment - while the ground dries out and revisit the last few L2 ones including imagination so some filming to be done, to be done

    Level 2 with Bailey - July

    How does another month slip past so quickly What did we accomplish in June: ~ 2 play days which included braving the cold & - working on the longer lines with the 22' around the neck - a trail walk in hand away from and out of sight of the other horses with no calling out by me or Bailey - riding and finding the centre on a very stiff horse and working on transitions from my seat on the circle and the rail; simple leads helped him to soften and our session finished with a softer horse and less leaning in - riding at home and discovering there are horse eating gremlins down the back of our paddocks so filmed A8 without fence and hence no straight lines (nor focus perhaps ) Thank goodness for lessons with Mel to finish off the month - L3 ground improving our connection, our backups and our sends- out and around at a longer distance with rope around neck Really pleased with his ability to take the offer of a narrow jump - L2 ridden working on the correct diagonals (still my problem ) and working these up into the correct canter leads on the circle before taking it out onto the rail and straight lines - Bailey was however much softer and not fussed at being by himself with me - maybe our confidence in each other is changing also looked at the soft feel, rebounds and box homework - perhaps time to submit A10 Reflecting on our 90 day plan - a bit slow on the progress, but still helping to move forward and find some good things coming along, plus the sticking bits to work on not to mention the joys of winter and unrugged pony

    Level 2 with Bailey - June

    And so another month has finished and we are into winter - already! Only 20 days to the winter solstice and then there will more daylight again!! From last month's plan, it seems we have been avoiding Cherokee & snaffle bits and helping Bailey find comfort with these in his mouth - card 7 riding in the bridle - card 9 perhaps as it is not in my mind as a priority as for the rest... the impulsion program - all of it, not just bits - so a good look and do of card 8, including canter PL footfalls in card 10 and being confident to ask with an exaggerated body position for the canter leads Sub/resub A8 - simple lead changes prn start thinking about Imagination Assignment ?? BB ridden and 22' may have avoided the PLs in general as they are on card 8 (canter) and card 10 (feeling for footfalls) My 90 day plan suggests I should be starting to look at card 12 (contact riding - butterfly) and starting more soft feel as well as submitting the imagination assignment - must have thought I'd have that pesky A8 done and dusted!! Today was a play in an unfamiliar place with a horse eating camel and alpaca so we did ground work with familiar patterns and the 22' around Bailey's neck, a trail walk in halter and a lot of float-loading practice!
