I don't know precisely, how Wolfram's owner thought of this name for him, but in Latvian in is spelled/written "Volframs" and they share a wonderful story - Wolfram was born to her mare, who had then developed incurable lameness, so, when Wolfram was old enough to be seperated from his mother, she was given to a wonderful home where she is now a happy pasture ornament. Wolfram, on the other side, was schooled, trained and loved from day one by his one and only owner, and is now 8 years old. Lucky horse. He is a really sweet and intelligent guy, experienced only the best in his life.

It looks fantastic there! You certainly moved to a great place.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

The snow has melted and sometimes I take Snickers for a walk and a tasty snack in the woods. This time - at liberty. A challenge for both of us. :) We went quite far away and Snickers was just perfect during all the walk.

After a perfect trail ride, exploring new trails for several hours and finding a village that is not shown in maps.

A glimpse in what Snickers does when I'm not around.

A wonderful spring day - perfect for having a sip from the new pond that is being made in the pastures.



Now for some physical activities! Look at the shoulder movement! Lol



Coming back home after yet another mud bath:




I won't be asking the "How does he get THAT dirty??" question again.



Having a nap with friends.

Aw, he is gorgeous. Enjoyed all of the pictures! Noticed a lot of the riders and you ride bit-less, I love it. I adore your horse, so cute. What kind of bit less bridle is that by the way? Looks neat!

Thanks! All of the riders at our barn ride bitless. Most of them use the LG hackamore, but I usually ride just in a rope halter and sometimes use a simple sidepull that was made out of a Dr.Cooks bitless bridle, just without the chin cross straps.
