A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I have been a riding instructor for 46 years. I was certified in 1968. My love is for the beginner and intermediate because I believe that a good foundation is the basis of a lifetime of riding enjoyment. I'm an advocate for the horse and his welfare. I support United States Pony Club,an organization that I have been involved with for 36 years. I'm the founder of Fox School of Horsemanship, established in 1969

My blog "The Riding Instructor" http://theridinginstructor.net is about teaching and learning about riding

My hobby is to preserve the history of riding in America. I have a blog called "US Horsemanship" http://ushorsemanship.com that deals with current issues. Readers are encouraged to post their comments about the topics.

I especially love Thoroughbreds and Arabians and am passionate about the American Mustang horse. I'm the founder of Mustang School a non profit organization that is devoted to teaching people about the Mustang, his training, his plight and his tremendous qualities. Our 2 year old Mustang is FSH Reno's Legacy. I write a blog about wild horses and Reno's life at http://fshrenoslegacy.net

Different Philosophies?

The other day on a blog, http://theridinginstructor.net, I wrote a post about boarding contracts. It was triggered by a recent situation where my daughter took over care at a small boarding stable here, when the owners went out of town. A horse went head to tail down (seizure) and remained that way for at least 8 1/2 to 9 hours. The horse owners refused to get a vet for the horse. The stable owner had no board contract, and the vets will not touch a… Continue

Be bought him two years ago in Ireland and he's performing very well now in Holland.

Hi Barbara,

I'm very fortunate where I live. I'm on 200 acres and surrounded by farms of similar if not larger size, in an undulating area in between two lots of ranges so I'm only a couple of kilometres away from bush in any direction and have some beautiful views from my house. It was originally a volcanic area so its quite fertile and in a normal year has good rainfall.

Our seasons are really changing here. Our winters have become drier and milder, normal would be around 8 - 12 celcius and this November was our hottest on record. We had two weeks of around 35 degree days which was great for cutting hay but started really drying everything out. Then in December it has really cooled down, we've had some good rain and its been fairly mild. Its been around twenty degrees the last couple of days and will get a bit warmer next week. Everyone here is dreading January to March due to our fire seasons becoming so bad. We arent very far from where some of the Black Saturday fires were. We had a quite a few days last summer that were in the mid forties.

I had always assumed that Arizona was a hot place so found it interesting that you get blizzards. How cold does it get there and do you get snowed in?
