Maybe you should go to the barn and let yourself be carried a while.
If you have a partnership with a horse then you know that some days you carry them and some days they carry you.
You carry them…Continue

Since the original product launch, continuous research and improvements have led to the development of revolutionary, high-quality fencing system solutions that are safe, easy to use and built to last.…Continue

Is it just me -or is a big part of the work-a-day horse world seized up in a flop sweat about money? Stress and worry seem to hang in the air. Horse sales are down. Hay production is down. Show…Continue

Inspired by the "Road to the Horse 2011" on DVD which arrived last week, I've decided to implement an intensive training program to get Brody ready to be ridden. Brody's been with us almost one year now, and he came to us with a suspensory injury. But the vet came last week for Brody's vaccinations, and gave the go ahead to climb on and ride. Woohoo!
Brody may be physically ready to be ridden, but mentally and emotionally he is not. (And, of course, there is the…Continue

These images were taken last November in the Collingwood, Ontario area. I was lucky enough to stumble upon some farms and these beautiful animals came galloping towards me.

Dressage borrows lots of language from ballet -after all, we are the dancers of the horse world. Pas de Trois is a dance of three. I have commandeered that phrase to describe riding lessons as a conversational dance between horse, rider and instructor. All three participants have to be heard for the dance to succeed.

The head of the herd at Infinity Farm is the kind of horse you might call Grandfather- with reverence. He was a flashy something in his day; what he lacked in confidence he made up for with bravado. We made a pair and a quarter century later, we have both softened and matured with age. He rules the ranch, from the ducks (he shares his grain with them) on up. Not all barns are as…Continue

Horse Slaughter; one of the worst things in the equine world. Innocent horses that did nothing wrong put through all the misery only to come to a cruel death. Yes, every horse lover wants it to end! I completely understand; But no matter how many videos they may make or pictures they post,…Continue
