What Future?

The Arabian horse is a natural show off and loves to perform and please. It is bold and full of character, intelligent and quick to learn. All these attributes make it a very trainable horse and for this reason, there should be no need to cut corners, use gadgets or abuse to produce your horse to perform in the show-ring. However, it does take time to develop muscle, carriage and balance.

Aklah Mercedes

The new owner of AKLAH MERCEDES had a successful day at the weekend.

Nicky Braund bought AKLAH MERCEDES a few weeks ago, to compliment her two older arabian horses, as a youngster to bring on for ridden showing. Nicky took AKLAH MERCEDES to her first show at Selby and District Riding Club Championship Show at Deighton on Sunday. Although the young filly has had some show training she has never actually left the yard until she went to reside with Nicky.

“The judge loved her and couldn’t believe it was her first show. She just walked in as if she knew what it was all about!” said Nicky. AKLAH MERCEDES took it all in her stride and walked away with her first red rossette on her first outing.

“Thank you Tina and Sarah for bringing up such a calm & well balanced little girl.”

We wish them well in the future.

Answer-

When the bit is set high, if she gets her tongue over the bit she cannot get it back by herself as it is fixed too tight. Normally, I would set the bit a little low, but not so low that it would catch on the front teeth. This does make it easier for her to get her tongue over, but also (more…)

Tina and I have just recently arrived back from a most enjoyable trip to the theatre in London, to see War Horse, a play based on a book written by Michael Morpurgo. The story for those not acquainted with it is told through the eyes of a horse called Joey, who is sold as a foal at auction and bought by Albert’s drunken father. The play goes on to demonstrate how a special bond is forged between Joey and Albert before his father in a drunken state sells him to the army to serve in the front line of the First Great World War. The story goes on to (more…)
