Hi Folks, Hope You had a lovely Week. Tough and worrying times 😏 Good Rains again. Bella Vista of the Week Cappo goes Feral 🙂 The Fat Boy came Home Yesterday, to cater for a lovely Young Lady who had both Legs Cut off. He is such a Darling Boy. He absolutely loved it too 🤗 Around the Traps We came across a Horse this Week, that had just been started by an Adelaide Hills Trainer and that Trainer had experienced difficulties with the Horse flexing one way and upon questioning, the Teeth are due and the Horse is young […]
Across Thousands of Horses, I rank the German Warmblood as the most Dangerous Horse, with the Australian Riding Pony second. This Article is a warning to the innocent, who may think that things will be straight forward, when riding one. They already spend half their time in mid-air!!! They are the most athletic Their movement is too big for most amateurs and that is a bad mix They THINK BUCK when exposed to excitement, like the first Show, if they shy, get a fright, 1st Canter, having another Horse Canter in front of them and more. They “Do not suffer […]

Hi Folks. I never thought I would see the Day, where the wonderful Internet that I first saw in 1999, could be completely ruined, by a few Big Tech Firms but it is now a helpless and hopeless environment. The Net has been hijacked and only serves the needs of the Barons. I never thought I would quote Vladimir Putin but this Week, in an interview with the World’s Press prior to his Meeting with Touchy Feely Jo, that America is heading to be the same as Russia was prior to it’s breakup. Big Tech is being used to manipulate […]
We now live in the Age of the 6/10 end Product. I rank Horse Starting out of 10. Over the past few Years, the maximum I have met has been a 6. It’s not ‘Rocket Science’ Folks. The quality of the end Product depends only upon the quality and quantity of the various systems that are put on the Young Horse at the time. For instance: If You start a Horse using pure Natural Horsemanship systems, it will end up a 6/10 If You start a Horse using just the British Horse Society influence, You end up with a 6/10 […]

We live in an alleged “Enlighten time” of Horse Training and yet, from the World of Horses that I mix in, I see important advances ignored by many. Hence articles like this one.
We know, that the MAJORITY of ridden Horses within the ‘English Disciplines’ in this Country, are NOT ridden via systems that promote Muscle Development, rather, they deteriorate it.
