  2. Pole Exercises for Horses

    Pole exercises for horses

     

    Winter is closing in the nights are dark and cold and it's tricky to be able to find the time or enough daylight to vary your weekly training sessions. This exercise is quick and simple yet super effective. Its main aim is core, shoulder, and back muscle activation, as well as stretching throughout – so is a good full-body workout for your horse! I wouldn’t say that this is an exercise you would solely use in a session, but it certainly works the horse sufficiently to only combine it with a bit of stretching in trot and canter afterward. Personally, I wouldn’t like to do a hard schooling session on top of this exercise as it's actually quite hard work for your horse.

  3. How to See a Stride

    How to see a stride

     

    In the first of our three-part series with British eventer Tom McEwen, we asked Tom for top tips on how to see a stride without leaving the ground. All this simple exercise requires is 4 poles and confidence from the rider to let the horse figure it out themselves. Keep your eyes peeled for the next blog in the series which will look at riding transitions.

  4. The Cleveland Bay

    Cleveland Bay

     

    When Julie Roberts got in touch to tell us about her two horses we had to share it as a blog, this special breed should be celebrated. The beautiful shades of bay, from light to dark, with black points on the legs and a black mane and tail, some with a hint of red colour on the knees make them absolutely eye-catching. Over to you Julie. "I’ve ridden and been around horses since I was a small child and wouldn’t want to be without them. I’ve owned and ridden all shapes and sizes but the breed that has won my heart since seeing them at a show many years ago is the Cleveland Bay.

  5. Taking on an ex-racehorse

    Ex-racehorses

     

     

    What a year 2020 has been for us all, and certainly not in the way we planned! I know I had ideas about what we both were going to achieve and places we were going to go, but the reality of this year has meant we have mainly just enjoyed each other’s company and got to know one another better. I’m Evie and the chestnut giant in the pictures is Trace Elements, better known as Paddy. He is a 17hh ex-racehorse I’ve had for the past two years, he's a real character and I'm looking forward to telling you more about him in this blog.

  7. Meet Kate

    One Club member story

     

    Three years ago I suffered a serious fall when viewing a horse, the stirrup leather broke and the horse went mad which resulted in me having a quite severe concussion and spending the night in A&E. I was thrown several feet into the air which then led to me landing head and neck first on the ground. I was unconscious for a while, it felt as though I was on a cloud and no one could reach me. I couldn't remember a thing, pins for my bank cards, my phone number, I could barely recognise my boyfriend. I'm Kate and this is my equestrian story.
