Hope You had a lovely Week. Nice drop of Rain still here, 5mm last Week and 8mm last Night. The Fleurieu Peninsula has now been Green for Weeks, in the Middle of Summer. Bizarre. Looks like a good Season.
and we actually had a Day off the other Day and took my good Friends Peter and Brenda Brown around the Fleurieu with a lovely Fish Lunch at the Normanville Kiosk, then onto Cape Jervis, just in time to see all the Semi Trucks load onto the Kangaroo Island Ferry.
and even dropped in to show them the Caravan Park I built back then and couldn’t believe the Water feature they had built recently.
Well, we were a Week ahead of the rest. Lovely to be able to read the future 🙂 Love it love it!!!!!
6 Months of everything and even went and got another Freezer, 200 metres from our Home. $40 🙂 Good Old Victor Harbor 🙂
Article of the Week
I find no joy what soever in writing this one and just know i will get flack for it, but I simply can’t stand by and watch the clandenstein attacks on the income of all conventional Horseman of the future and the denegration of Horsemanship as we know it.
Juliana Waugh AO, is giving up for she admits that it has all been wrestled out of Her Hands, by the Committee types who know BUgger all about the subject, manipulating the Industry for their own beliefs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
For those of You who watch the Videos on this article and particularly those Ladies who start their own Horses, will be amazed to see the complete lack of timing and reading of a Horse, by both the Scientists and the NH Guru, who quite amazingly thought he could smack an unhandled Horse in the side of the Head and send it off Zone 2 hahahahaha. Zone 2 alright, he spent the whole first Day trying to catch the thing, forget Zone 2 🙂
From Juliana Waugh this Week
Ah John this issue is soon to be put to bed for me – I’m about to officially give up the advocacy fight for sensible change around all things horse- whether safety or welfare or anything – I can only hope I have perhaps made a few changes which might make it harder for individuals who might have otherwise been like the horse supplier in Dubbo who supplied the unsuitable horses for beginner riders and lied about them to make a buck knowing there was nothing in regulations to stop them- to hold them to account for the lies they tell.I know you and your wife will go on doing great work with your wealth of experience – but for me the battle is almost over – I promised my husband that I’d stop ‘ banging my head against the wall ‘ in my efforts to try to improve things in Sarah’s memory – I thank you for being the knowledgeable horse person who first helped me understand what was wrong right at Dubbo TAFE in 2009 at the start of this 10 year journey – when you reviewed the photos and videos taken at Dubbo TAFE of horses the riding students rode – the equine world is filled with much often misguided passion,lots of stupidity , many myths and legends, so many complexities, many big egos, and very little agreement between disciplines -hence so so hard to get agreement – I wish you well in your work into the future .All the best Juliana Waugh. AO.
So…..NOT HEARSAY ey. 200 Years of knowledge and it is HEARSAY. Here we go Folks Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Those among us who are Psychologists, can read a certain weakness and anti Science in that statement, where the personal inhibitions show.
They are not going to Certificate anyone, with the knowledge to do what they are offering. You can’t learn that stuff via Certificates and writings
Ok, so again, let’s prioritize the Welfare of the Horse. The Scientists at work, terrorizing this poort Horse for at least 4 Years now and WOULD YOU BELIEVE that the long suffering Horse competed again yesterday 🙁
Lesson of the Week
I told You about the well known SA Coach who was teaching to impress this Lass, Piaffe would You believe ( when she can’t even do it on Her F.E.I. Horse) and when You watch this Lesson, You will see how corrup that behavior is.
Mrs. HP doesn’t ride other People’s Horses but is going to make an exception next Week and ride this lovely Clydie Cross, in the Prelim Class, to give Him an outing.
New Zealand Dude reviews us 🙂
This Horse had been coming to a Halt and not moving for the Lady. We did a one hour assessment and some work, last Week.
This is my email if you have time to send me that 44 pages E-Book for Your Running Reins System, to work with
Really appreciated Friday. She’s so much more responsive and we have been practicing our one rein stops, back up and leg yields. We’re doing good. Nice trots and great stops and out Trail Riding now. Thanks so much.
Well done Pam. Great job. Lovely Horse!!!

HP HORSE FLOAT SAFETY SYSTEM
Hi Mr and Mrs HP,
I was not sure if I was successful sending a query through the chat function as it was offline at the time and kept spinning so apologies if this was received previously.
My question was about the ‘safety belt system’ you use and referred to in your threads on floating. I could not find anything as what exactly that meant or looked like. Can you point me in the right direction please. Really appreciate all your work and advice in this area.
There is no information on my Site about it, or photos, but I invented them to stop Horses going over the Chest Rail and getting hung up or through the front Window which we have seen many times. It works a treat and actually becomes their comfort zone. They try one, twice at the maximum and then completely settle, safe in the knowledge that they are protected. I have probably had around 30 instances of this across my Career, since inventing them one dark Night when a Colt took off but landed with his Hind Hooves on the Chest Bar and then launched again, out over the top of the front of my open float, teetering on his Stomach, not knowing which way to fall, down on the brakes or back in the Foat. Well he fell back in because I gave Him a right cross to the snout 🙂 and he escaped with hardly a mark on him…..why?……because of FULL HEIGH doors which he just walked out of like a Baby 🙂
There was the rough start to, with 3 Weanlings, just left Mummy and traveling down a Freeway in the Truck Traffic 🙂
AROUND AND AROUND THEY GO – WHERE WILL THEY STOP – NOBODY KNOWS
Tip of the Week
The best Piaffe and Passage comes from Dressage Training under Saddle, NOT from whips on the Ground…..which is why none can do it here.
