Training Joy and Creaky Bones

Training Joy and Creaky Bones

Time flies and we come a long way since I last posted on Oakley!! We have had some training woes and minor battles and some huge positive steps forward. Our balance at walk, trot and canter has improved dramatically and I have been keeping on with obstacles as well as training to leg yield and...

Having more holiday time while I’m unable to ride… the lads are living it up!
Running a Muck with Trucks!

Running a Muck with Trucks!

Trucks were spreading lime in the paddock today… Oakley and Harley thought it was great!  
If The Hoof Doesn’t Work…

If The Hoof Doesn’t Work…

When problems arise with our horses it always takes us on the biggest learning curve. Some say all things come in threes… in this case it seems right as Oakley has also come down lame. It has been a really bumpy road this week in the horse paddock with Baxter, Harley and now Oakley. So...
Baxter and Harley - Health Update

Baxter and Harley – Health Update

The Fun After The Storm

The Fun After The Storm

The thunderstorms finally eased today… I found all the ‘lads’ having a great time in the paddock with the mud and their long lost toy that floated it’s way back to them! Play is great for the horses soul. Enjoy the snaps!  
Kadill

Kadill

Totally sensitive… extroverted Arabian that feels pressure like you wouldn’t believe and over the top in his reactions to EVERYTHING! Standing at 15.2hh he is the oldest boy in the yard and the bottom of the pecking order. Training in dressage, would be great to get riding out more and into some endurance.  
Baxter

Baxter

Beautiful chocolate 16hh thoroughbred, most of the time he is a very laid back man… for an off the track mount. Training in dressage at the moment and loves to jump.
Harley

Harley

Spunky little man, ‘class A’ welsh pony currently 10.2hh. One day, in the not too distant future, he will be ridden by my son Jebediah Lloyd (now 7months), as an all round fun pony.
Oakley

Oakley

Cheeky solid stock horse cross, currently 16hh and growing. The aim is to train him to be an ‘all rounder’ horse as he is bold and carefree.
