Showing From Home

Showing can be expensive so it’s nice to know there’s a way to cut trailering costs and stay at home to do it. You can even compete against riders from all over the country while you’re at it. Thanks to developments by the International Performance Horse Development Association (IPHDA), it’s now possible to show your horses in western disciplines from the comfort of your home.

IPHDA offers eight progressive levels of competition in… Continue

A work in progress

Ive been thinking (you can smell the smoke from there can't you) that I need to focus on the things I can change and let go of the crap that I can't. (sounds AA-ish, I am actually 7 and a half years sober.)

I'm not even going to talk about the "crap" I cant change right now and focus on what I CAN change.

**I am tired and unhealthy. I am, what I have recently found out, a "bad" vegetarian. I have been this way for about 3 years. I cut out meat but havent added any vegetables.…

No, it's not about the pop group from the 90's!!

It's about the wettest start to the Royal Adelaide Show in a hundred years.

They say there were a thousand lightning strikes in the metro area, all I know is the thunder was so close it caused a traffic accedent in my pants!!

7.30am Friday, all 4 horses and the two ponys loaded well and we were out the gate on time on our way to the Show in good spirits. Tony Hall, Kate, Nick and Briony and myself looking forward to a…

Wentworth Show

Well, after a mammoth 8 hour drive in the new truck we arrived safely and everyone travelled well. Wentworth is in the western district of New South Wales, so a fair way from Inman Valley. My wife ,Kate, has a family connection with the area and she was the first Miss Wentworth showgirl. As this was the 20th anniversary of that milestone in her life we felt duty bound to return for the show ( plus the mother in law said we had to!). I took two Showjumpers and the kids took a pony each , plus…

Dublin show at the Royal Dublin Society in Ballsbridge is the centrepiece and driving force for many in the Irish Equestrian community. It is so dominant in our culture that people just talk about it as ‘the horse show’, despite the fact that there are…

Dress To Impress - Yourself

As I have grown up in horses I have noticed something which I think gets by many riders. It combines functionality with human nature and it’s something I have grown to take as gospel but few others speak about.

Saturday, July 24th


Today is July 24th, and i havent been on Barnmice for a REALLY long time. i'm quite happy that people are joining my group, Showing. Riders helping Riders is a great way to connect.

A Stellar Show- But, not stellar eating

Well I fell off the eating healthy wagon yesterday. We were only at the

horse show for the day which made it difficult to really have a

schedule. We left here at 11:30 and I had a bagel with lox and cream

cheese (light) around 10:30. By the time the afternoon performance got

over, it was almost 4:00 before we got to lunch. We ended up in an

italian place that some people we knew wanted to go to. Everything was

heavy cream and there was nothing that I would call… Continue

We're Officially Qualified for the 2010 NAJYRC!!!

Chance and I had a very succesful weekend April 3-4th at the ADA Spring Celebration! I feel like we're learning so much together and I'm so excited for our future! Chance and I are both learning how to handle his new and improved fitness level, but we made it through the weekend with good scores inspite of a few bobbles. I felt like we had our best quality work ever in the Junior Team Test on Saturday and…

Spring ADA

My little guy put forth a wonderful effort this weekend at the ADA Spring Celebration. All scores above 60% in first level and making great progress in second level! We also pulled the second level high point award! My top hat flew off in 2 of my rides, it was so embarrassing! Happens to the best of us I suppose. We get a well deserved few weeks off until Region 7 Championships for Arabs later this month!

Great Witchingham Novice

The end of term at school (early of course) saw us making the mahusive trip into the depths of east anglia for Dell’s first Intermediate Novice (IN). Despite gloomy predictions of a long

journey from everyone ., we arrived early! – That one joins my optimistically

short list of “journeys that take half the time Google says they will”....

Dells first intermediate test meant it was also his first test I had…

March show!

So as I packed up the horse trailer to go home, I though to myself it had been a great day, could have been better though. But the day did not go as smoothly as id had hoped. First, my mom was unable to drive me to the show so I had to car pool me and my horse with a barn friend. Anyway, my class started at 8 so at the least had to be their at the least 7:30, so i got picked up at 7:00 (supposed to be picked up at 6:30) and we got there at 7:45! Well yes, my first show with Summer I was…
