A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I rode for a number of years as a teenager, then circumstances changed, and I couldn't.
Then, a few years back, circumstances changed back and I started riding again. Summer 2011, I had the most marvelous opportunity offered to me and now have a 15.2 HH Quarter Horse. In the first year, I learned more about horses than all the previous years, put together.
Since then, my riding skills have improved dramatically, thanks to a challenging horse and excellent instruction.

The Oakley Diaries 46 - Labour Day Ride

We got invited to the Eglinton Caledon Hunter Pace meet on Labour Day. Not an actual hunt, but a long course across country, very far from the city. I think I've found Oakley's calling.

The course is simple, we follow a marked trail 19km long, which wends its way over hill and dale, across meadows around crops, along paths and through woods. Sometimes we walked, sometimes we trotted, sometimes we cantered, and sometimes we galloped full out. Still kind of fun to pass my friends like…

The Oakley Diaries 45 - Summer 2020

We began the summer, after the Solstice, with some relaxing of the COVID-19 health restrictions. Finally, open-air competitions were allowed, and, glory be... there was a weekend with a training meet and I wasn't working! The competition was a teaching format, which means day one, I went round the entire course with a coach, over all the jumps, and day 2 went round again, but as a competition.

So we spent the first training day doing well enough, our dressage was sloppy... much…

The Oakley Diaries 44 - Long Enforced Rest

I have taken advantage of the current pandemic crisis management to give my hip a chance to heal. I came down very hard on it last October. The thing is, Oakley always bolts leftwards or wheels so he can bolt leftwards, which always leaves me hanging out of the saddle to the right side. For the first five years or so, then, I was falling out of the saddle onto my right hip into sand, grass, packed earth, ploughed fields, roads, bushes, and everywhere else he could find to drop me. It's the…

Oakley Diaries 43 - Reviewing the Basics

   As the winter goes along, we are reviewing all the basics. I firmly believe that this needs to be done over and over, and other professional instructors, some expounding on YouTube, others in writing, have offered firm support for this concept.

   The principal is simple, the more one does something, the smoother and better one becomes at it. In the case of horse training, the basics are fundamental movements which, put together, allow for more complex, or difficult movements. In…

Hello Bruce

Just a gently nudge as a new year is hear and we have been receiving quite a few invitations starting in the spring. We even have the chance to participate with our friends in the 6th Ohio Cavalry in the Pegasus Parade in Louisville prior to the Kentucky Derby. Not sure any of our members will be gong, but it would be something.

Hope to hear from you and hoping more to ride by your side.
