Hi all!

Just popping in to say hi. I leave for horse rubby school (as hubby calls it) today. So excited, though I've got drama with Kes I am stressing over. Her wound on her hip isn't healing well, and we've got the show in little less that two weeks. She's also still very sore, so couldnt ride to get her tuned up. I'll have three days before the show, hoping we can work well those three days!!

We called the riding place but we need to be put on a waiting list
For the fall because the summer riding program is winding up this week
So we have to decide which day Saturdays or 5 pm week days

CW, I would vote for Saturdays, as in the winter the evenings are shorter and you can enjoy more scenery, possibly, during the daytime rides!

With Grace, how deep/long is the wound on her hip? I have seen amazing things on this forum from Manuka Honey and I personally am a huge fan of Vetericyn in speeding up healing. Good old Omega 3's in supplements (if you're not already) will help with inflammation. MSM will, too, and helps with joint pain as a result - don't know if it's prohibited in your show rules, though, as I don't show. I'm sending healing vibes your way...and you already know that a good massage helps with all-body health. Love the hubby's phrase, horse rubby class -- too cute!

Manuka honey does have some pretty amazing healing ability but you have to get the right one.

Natures Buzz is one brand but look on the lable of any Manuka honey for the sign active 20+

Put it on the wound and cover. You will be surprised how well and how quick it works. Remember to look for the active 20+ sign

Don't let any of your family try it on toast for breakfast it is addictive I have to fight Roslyn for my share.

One year ago today the first man I ever loved passed away.

I miss my Daddy! I am having a really, really tough day. Is this normal?

Here is the awareness ribbon I ride with, my Daddy gave me my first pony....

Against my Mom's better judgement.

Hi everyone. Feels like a real autumny start to the day here - a remider that winter is stalking us again
CW - Hope you can get your rides organised, its such a lovely time of year to do that, the flies will be reducing and the extreme heat fading.
Susan - I love how you expressed your feelings for your dad, he must have been a wonderful man
Grace - Sorry to hear that Kes' wound isn't doing so well, she looks so beautiful on the pic. Honey is a really old tried and tested thing and I've seem some amazing results with it. You'd have to check for yourself but I believe its chemical make up turns to Hydrogen peroxide when it reacts with body chemicals. I've also used a paste made of vaseline and salt to good effect.
Emm - Keep moving towards your goal - you will get there. My son tried our mini clyde over some jumps for the first time last night in the bitless bridle - she is a bit forward going and strong and he was able to hold her just as well if not better as she wasn't worrying at the bit
Hope you all have a good day

Wishing everyone a Good Morning. Sporadic rain yesterday-had to keep opening & closing windows depending on which way the wind was blowing.Thanks to a friend who mentioned Baby detangler at the Dollar Store-found some yesterday & will try it on my Arabians long tangled mane-hate losing any mane hair!

Thank you, I do believe we'll get there. My kiddos (all 5--1st time in almost 16 years I'll be home alone, don't know whether to be happy or sad about that) start school next week. I work from home, but am hoping to have an hour or so each day to just work with them. By the end of fall, I'd like to be putting in 10-15 minute rides and go from there. I'd like to know more about a side pull, my horse seems to not understand the pressure to turn with a halter and I'm wondering if a side pull would help. :)

Since your horse was trained to a snaffle he's familiar with 'side pull' so to be fair to him you should at least start out bitless with a side pull technique - maybe even using a headcollar with reins attached to the sides - did you look at Eva Roemaat as she gives some examples of things like that?
From there you can decide where to go next, it doesn't hurt to train him to neck rein and turn off leg aids but to ride safely and correctly in a halter he will need to understand how to do that. For him the 'pull' from the centre point is translating as 'whoa' as per leading him from the ground, not turn, so he's confused
Have you been on him since your little 'episode' in the field with Festus?

Yes Susan you missing your dad after a year is normal
You are going to miss him on special days ie his birthday
The day he passed and holidays
I lost my dear dad 5 years in Sept. I think of him every day
I was daddy's little girl
