I got to play in the mud today. It's so wet out there I couldn't help it. Chasing rabbits is dirty work! When I came in the house, Jane made me go straight to the bath tub and take a bath. I don't know who got wetter, her or me! I love water, but I don't like baths. It feels a little like I'm trapped in that small bathtub. I much prefer the … Read more »

I blew it. I mean I really blew it. I was trying to show off to the cute new mare in the barn, and I ended up tripping over my own feet and landing with a splat in the mud. I was so embarrassed I thought I'd light up the sky a bright red. Good thing I'm covered in black hair or there'd have been a rosy glow all over the gentle hills of Vermont. I … Read more »

Use Your Legs FIRST To Put Your Horse on the Bit

If you only use your hands when trying to put your horse on the bit, you’re making one of the biggest mistakes you can make. By focusing on the head, wiggling on the bit, and “getting the head down”, you’ll just be creating an artificial “head-set”. Putting your horse on the bit has nothing to do with “head sets”. Physically, it’s a round … Read more »

Ride Good Corners

November 12, 2014 by      0 Comments

No matter what level you’re doing, you have to ride corners. So really use those corners to help your horse. As my coach, Robert Dover, always says, “Corners aren’t just something you wave at as you go by!” So when you ride good corners with correct bend, you set your horse up for better balance as you come out of the corner. The general … Read more »

Patience. I hear it is a virtue. I think it's a habit that can be developed. Having patience with your horse is very important. He or she thinks differently than you do, so you have to be able to recognize when he tries to do what you're asking, even if he didn't quite get it. Rewarding the "try" is very important. It's also very important … Read more »

I was frightened today. I got out of my yard and went exploring. I was crossing the street and a big truck almost ran me over! The driver honked his loud horn at me, and I ran as fast as I could, but I felt the wind from the passing truck on my tail. It scared me! I went right home. Jane was scared too, wondering where I'd gone. Just being with … Read more »

I love to sleep in the sun. There is something delicious about the gentle warmth on my fluffy coat. It's like being lovingly hugged by Nature. I get drowsy just thinking about it. There is a time for resting, a time for playing, and a time for working. The life of a companion dog has a pretty appealing balance of all three. I've noticed that … Read more »

"Aha!" I love those moments. Don't you? When you suddenly GET IT? It's such a rush when everything comes together and really works for the first time. How do you create more "Aha Moments"? When Jane is riding me, they come when both sides of my brain kick in, along with the muscle memory of the new movement. And that comes with both … Read more »
