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 41 - The Tree Root Analogy

We are now jumping up to 1m, even over a 1m spread. It feels a lot like soaring. Of course, that is only possible because I have the ability to clamp my legs on, and no longer need to rip his hair out of his neck. Because I'm not flying out of the saddle, Oakley is no longer balking quite the way he used to.

Oh, he still stops in front of a jump he hasn't seen before, that'll be a given for ever. After eight years, he still freezes and tries to avoid and frequently stops, but in a…

The Oakley Diaries 40: Riding a Bicycle

   Really. It turns out that a good way to think about riding is to think about riding a bicycle. Especially jumping, but dressage, too. I was warming up last Wednesday, when J.H. commented to one of the students in the class that was just finishing up, that they needed to look up, not at the jump (a problem I struggle with) and used the analogy that one does not look at the wheel of one's bicycle when riding, one looks ahead, down the street and guides the bicycle around whatever dangers…

The Oakley Diaries 39 - Winter is... Gone!

   The past two months have improved my abilities at an appropriately glacial pace. Winter came, snowed, thawed then froze, then snowed, then thawed and froze again, leaving a thick layer of ice covering everything. After the glacier subsided and the mud was something less than thick enough to suck the hooves off the horses, we have been continuing on with the task of subtle repositioning in the saddle, which is much harder than it sounds.

    The best way to describe it is to stand up,…

The Oakley Diaries 38 - The End of Our Beginning

   We did a dressage competition at the Royal Canadian Riding Academy last Saturday. We were riding the 2019 USEF Training Level Test 2. For the first time, a test result that came back and I'm quite happy with everything on it. The judge, I was told afterwards, judges FEI competitions, and has a reputation for marking hard and being picky, so it…

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.
