"Sounds like a good time was had by all. She'd have a riot of a ride on my Arab. When my greenhorn sons wanted to ride him the first thing I taught was the one rein stop, you know why. My middle son calls it the "e brake"! Actually the…"

The Oakley Diaries - 18: Lesson The First- Wow

I let my friend R.M. have her first real horse ride on Oakley. It was a thrill and a pleasure for us both. Firstly, because, for years, we've had an ongoing argument:"I know how to ride." "No, you don't." "But I've been on lots of trail rides." "Yes, exactly."She has only ever been astride one of those poor, old, tired, much-used trail-horses safe for tourists and kids on birthdays to ride because they are too worn out to spook and trained to ignore whatever the rider does. So it was a delight…See More

The Oakley Diaries - 17: He is a Character

   Let's be fair, all horses are characters, if we take the time to get to know them. Everyone who spends lots of time will find amusing quirks and peculiarities and will gather a collection of anecdotes. This horse is okay on the road until he sees a painted bicycle symbol. That one doesn't like potted plants. This one loves dogs, that one hates 'em.   Oakley has, naturally, a few quirks of his own. He is "the best-behaved horse in the barn" because he never pushes, never tries to bolt and…See More

The Oakley Diaries - 16: Waltzing with Horses

I have associated Classical music with riding, ever since my first teacher used to play records during classes to help illustrate and teach rhythm.What I've found is that horses also enjoy music, particularly classical European music, but really anything that has a good, lively melody; music without too heavy a beat, with a pleasant melody, and with a consistent tone, i.e. no changes between very quiet parts and very loud parts, works well, no matter what genre. Very quiet music doesn't work in…See More

The Oakley Diaries - 15: A Banner Day

He didn't refuse to go over an obstacle once yesterday. Most significantly, he went over a new jump of his own accord.They weren't big jumps, about a meter high, no more, but he went right over them with only one slight hesitation.I suppose most riders might not find this particularly outstanding, but two years ago it was a life-and-death argument to get over a simple trot-pole. He would explode over it and follow it up with a wild-west show. The arena has a couple of very hard spots that…See More

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 16.2 HH Quarter Horse. In the first year, I've learned more about horses than all the previous years, put together.

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.

Welcome to the wonderful world of horses...I like you came to this later..and have learned so much about myself through the horse...I guess that's why I still love it so much...through lots of frustration, tears, I just keep learning so much from my horses...I took a longtime to learn that trust, and I work not to break that trust...I love their " its just today " way that they have....keep going, get a good coach, read everything you can , ask questions , lots of them....good luck and I love the blog......
