O/K since we are publishing photos of horses I thought I would go one better and show what the well dressed horse loving man wears on a training session.

The well dressed young lady is teaching Bugs to load from behind.
Today I the well dressed one continued on with the training loading Bugs but the photos are of Stella and she is loading from behind. She got a little crabby and raised a hind leg in threat. I dealt with that with a growl and hit the leg in she went.

The ensemble I am wearing is of the highest quality and up to the mark 2012 fashion. The hat is vented so when one gets hot and bothered the airflow through the hat helps cool the fevered brow, moving to the sun glasses photo sensitive clear in the shade and darken in the sun.

The tee shirt what can I say, but don't I model it well.
Moving to the long shorts or short longs dependant on ones point of view. My wife tried to retire them to the rubbish, but I found them, and insist on getting another season. Moving further south a bit of leg, not much to crow about there and then the final item, the boots, brought from Sheplers USA.

So now you know what the well dressed horse riding man is wearing this summer.

This post is a demonstration why its for 40+ and both horses loaded, to be repeated for ten days to get the habbit installed. Not sure if the horses liked my riding gear Stella laid her ears back when she saw me.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Totally, we are both idiots.


So I moved barns this summer, it was the usual barn move stress you read about here. BO was my trainer, so I was ditching her as a BO and a trainer. I wanted to move in like a ninja and move my horse out without any drama, as my horse was at her house this was unlikely.

So driving there, my stress level is through the roof! I paid her the full months notice and texted to say my horse had moved.

Brad (none horsey husband) is his usual self, plod along calm old school horse, he couldn't move fast in a fire. I am losing my mind, running all over. Lucas (horse) loaded like a pro, I am tying him up in the trailer. Brad needs him to move over for the divider, pushes his ass, little response. That's ok, Brad's none horsey, I hustle over in my stressed mind and just shove my horse.

I don't shove in a good way, so Lucas does what he was asked and moves forward, out the quarter sized human escape door. Lucas's head and shoulders are out of the escape hatch, flark!!!!!

Thankfully I asked 'my idiot' to back up, and he did, and came right out of the escape door.

It has been pretty clear to me that from that point on, we are both idiots.

Looking back on the photo
I had just arrived home from work White shirt and tie. Had run Bugs through his session and put on the best most up to date outfit in prep for Stella, as she was expected to be a pain in the rear. Both horses have been giving grief with loading and are being retrained to load by being driven from behind and not lead. Removes the use of the escape door. Both are doing well.

Stella in the recent past has refused to load. My fault. Due to an illness last christmas in an effort to avoid stress if she played up when loading I was backing her away to reduce my stress level and inadvertantly taught her how to get away with the behaviour. Stella being a big horse is also an alfa mare and displays it.

Bugs is her replacment as I had grown tired of her issues but after today with good loading and she also responding to voice commands again, I am now at a cross roads which one to keep. Bugs on the other hand was scared of the float so a different ball game He is green broke with no experience but great personality.

The combination shorts, leg, and boots. Thought I could scare Stella into the trailor if voice comands failed. Both worked.

Saturday schedule for the horses. Working Bugs, load into the float, then saddle up and work him in the paddock, then load him again. Teach him the trailer is his place of rest and is a safe place to be. The same for Stella. Sunday, take Bugs out again through the farm, a bit of forrest and along the beach for experience and confidence building. His and mine, he has to be able to walk out on his own.

By the way, its summer here in NZ and the rain has stopped Looks like a couple of days of good weather.

Cheers all, and the photos of horses in the snow are great to see.

Look Alex, we have a forum cop that snoops around looking for babies that want to join our forum. Seriously, I like 37 year old women. In fact I have even loved a few back in the day. Now, my wife is the only one that will have me. You will love our forum. There isn't one snarky person here ....unless it's me.
