....doesn't sound too safe but you survived...it is interesting to try to find out if there were proportionately more accidents in those days or less...I wish I could revisit those days...I regret not staying more involved with Cornwall and the Cornish equine stalwarts such as Heather but I suppose we must all go on our own journeys...William

Wow! I ws just looking at a pic of Heather H in a book about the FB hunt sent to me by my brother David who is still in Cornwall. I think my Father gave her stress...I remember with fondness the rallies there. Have we met? William

Hi Julie,
Just a reply to your comment on my trick riding vid. A totally valid question!....but tricks are nearly always done off (apart from a couple of basics i can think of) and have always been done off the nearside of the horse.....i suppose because it is natural for both u and the horse....(most horses/and people are one sided)....i couldn't imagen hanging off the far side...i would say it would be SUPER uncomfortable for both horse and rider and dangerous if you were riding corners (like in an arena!) or had a run down a barrier/fenceline etc......
From what i've seen trick riders in the UK do things alot differently from Australian and American trick riders....more Vaulting orientated or something and different saddles.
I can understand the concern about onesidedness/soreness etc and we combat that by making sure the horse is warmed up properly on BOTH sides before a trick riding session..and of corse warmed down appropriately....also most horses are not just a trick riding horse....most of the time it's kind of like their 2nd job .....as we (myself and Bubby) are already established we really don't train to offen, untill before a show....we will do anything from flatwork, to liberty, to trick training, trail riding, road work and sometimes jumping. I hope to compete with her one day....just haven't decided what in. I also have a Chiropractor and Accu-pressure therepist visit once every couple of months just to ensure all is well with her.....she usually gives a couple of little tweeks and we r good 2 go!.....

Hi Julie,

Why don't you post some questions and photos on my blog? Ride Fit 1-2-3 on the last entry. That way I can respond specifically in the next blog.

Welcome to Barnmice Julie. Great to see more Brits on the site - even though I live in Canada now, England will always be home for me :)

Enjoy Barnmice
