    WAIT WAIT WAIT Stan my hubby KNOWS how to USE said vacuums and washing machines etc. Do you want some lessons?

    Lessons: NO I'm happy with the bottle opener, cork removal tool, and the TV remote. I can saddle my horse so O/K in that department, but, any other lesson I may benefit from, feel free to make recomendations.

    And that, in a nutshell, is the glue that holds the universe together.

    Tomorrow is Belle day I hope it does not rain
    I will be asking about the saddle
    I hope all is well and the saddle arrives. Some of the things I do with Stella when not riding is kick a ball around and under her feet, she does not kick back though but it keeps her used to the unexpected. I also use an umbralla geting her used to that opening and closing, rubbing it down both sides of her and the next doors think both myself and my wife are nuts when we have both horses, the sun shining and we are wearing long rain coats and hats. Keeps the horses used to us looking strange. We also take them off and on, throw the coats over the horses even their heads and sit on their backs while putting the coats on and off. Another activity I do with stella while sitting on her is open a can of soft drink. The noise it makes can cause the horse to react so its good training for both the horse and rider.

    A true story, a friend of mine was riding bare back on the beach a few months ago and while sitting on the back of her horse she opened a can of coke, the noise it made when being opened caused the horse to bolt to the side. My friend fell and broke her neck in the fall. She survived and has only recently had the cast and neck brace which was screwed into her head removed. It reminds one we have to keep working the horse in different ways to keep reminding it of its training, and to keep ourselves safe.

    Enjoy your ride but if the saddle has not arrived, I found most horses will take a wide tree western saddle without causing them harm for a short period while awaiting the correct fit. Of course if the horse is very narrow in the shoulders a wide tree could be a little lose.

    Cheers CW
