Horse shows then and now-amazing!

Before my judging assignment in Israel begins, I’m standing in King Herods’s 1st century “Hippodrome”-the site of ancient horse shows and chariot races Herod built at the time of Jesus Christ-part of his summer palace in Caesarea.

It hit me – Tomorrow, I’ll be standing in a 21st century Hippodrome!

A return trip to judge a show in Israel!

My judging colleague is from Italy. My ring steward (and wonderful interpreter), Israeli.

Striking, as a “reserved” Canadian, Middle Eastern shows are more…  dramatic!  Enthusiastic applause for every class, down to the final one at 9:00 PM. 

Passionate viewpoints are expressed at the show office, over the walkie talkie and from the sidelines are colorful –amped up with volume and hand gestures.  No matter the geography –  there’s possibly more competition that goes on outside the ring than inside- what do you think?

It’s a judging survival skill to tune out distractions, drama at any show.  Not speaking Hebrew can have it’s…

A good case for saddle time vs. screen time!

"Mr Smith, I think for the sake of your daughter's well-being, you should invest in a horse..."



Reading an article about the effects smartphones and social media have on us, I‘d say the science is confirming that uneasiness many of us have our ever-present screens.   "There's compelling evidence that the devices we've placed in young peoples' hands are having a profound effect on their lives - and making them seriously unhappy." (Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?" Dr Jean Twenge. The Atlantic.)



Study after study finds that the more time and teens spend looking at screens the more likely they are to report symptoms of depression and anxiety.  Teens who spend the most time in off-screen activities, especially with friends (the real, face-to face kind), report…

Coaching riders and… buying watermelons??

Had a little chuckle in the produce section yesterday J

Hmmm…the process of choosing just the right melon includes the 3 things I consider in choosing just the right solution to offer a horse and rider!

LOOK- We scan the melons comparing one to another - any flaws? I scan horse and rider-looking for resistance, tension, conflicting aids 

LISTEN I'm not sure what tapping the Melon is supposed to do but I do it anyway!

I've learned to listen to my riders more than I did as a younger coach. Does the point of the exercise make sense to you?? Describe what you're feeling-any frustration?  Physical limitations or even pain?  What are your long term and immediate goals?

FEEL- I feel the weight of the…
