Gotta love ponies!

Are ponies tougher than horses?

French researchers say so.

Speaking about the ways we can preserve the welfare and sanity of riding lesson horses, Dr. Clémence Lesimple said that poor riding technique has the greatest impact on the presence of injuries, and it also has an effect on stereotypy development. (ie. cribbing and weaving).

“Frequent forage feeding, regular free time in the paddock with other horses, straw bedding, and good riding techniques are also  critical elements for promoting equine welfare in riding facilities,” she said.

“We often hear that ponies are more robust than horses, and our study shows for the first time that they are less inclined to develop signs of poor welfare and that they are more resistant to deleterious equitation.”

Riding patterns

The more we ride them the better we get at memorizing them. We build upon previous experiences and observations. Our brains are actually changed. We’re learning to learn.

So, if experience goes through the routine, perhaps wisdom says, This is the way things typically go.

 Left lead skills are typically followed by a lead change and some right lead skills.  After jumps to the right come the jumps to the left.  From dressage ring to hunter course to reining pen.  Wise riders are ones who’ve learned to recognize the flow of the show – patterns, schedules and horses – the way things usually work.

Taken a step further, the wise rider not only sees of the rhythms and routines, but applies what she knows.

I love the ancient Hebrew word for wisdom,…

Why do we love our “kissing horse face” photos?

They’re everywhere – advertising vacations to vaccinations (if you love your horse, you’ll immunize with…)

Winston Churchill got it right- “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”

Horses are therapy.  They make us feel good.

But let’s be honest, our horses might not be feeling the love as much as we are when they’re kissed.

1. Kissing isn’t your horse’s “love language”. Horses express their bonding preference for herd mates in other ways. Kissing is a human expression, we learn as toddlers.  Research shows they actually prefer being scratched or massaged, particularly around the withers, by their people.

2. Horses will tolerate, but not naturally enjoy their noses touched. First, he can’t see you. Objects…

Hope comes riding…

Well, as the dust settles from the US election, some are left standing with their hopes dashed - others had their hope stirred.

Hope for peace, prosperity, rescue…

I love the words of the late Chuck Colson:  “Salvation will not arrive on Air Force One.”

Removed from his seat of power as Counsel to the President, landing in a jail cell for his role in the Watergate scandal, he discovered his own hope in political success …was lame horse.

So what is your hero riding on a white horse? That next win, next show  prospect, next relationship ? Financial security, retirement…?

Chuck Colson discovered something prison -  that his only hope was a relationship with God.  He said,

“Where is the hope? The hope that each of us have is not in who governs us,…
