The Monday after a horsetrials

After an average Dressage test on Saturday that had us midfield 16th, a reasonable and clear showjumping plus a clear Crosscountry with a few time penalties we ended up 10th. Did I mention I jumped jump 12 with only one stirrup? Were an interesting few moments. But I was pleased with Occy’s jumping.
For something different I rode the mower today. Lots off grass in paddock good. In backyard bad. Also smudged arena before rain starts later this week.
Occy seems to have recovered nicely and is running around paddock. Did have a heartrate of 66 after Crosscountry so couldn’t have been too stressed. No comps this weekend, Tooradin the week after.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including and To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try
