Summary of last week lots of rain, #dressage, hoof and woof, and a lumpy horse

Did some flat work last week just to Occy bit of a break from jumping. Mind you on Sunday at club we did a hoof and woof for our Christmas break-up rally. Dressage followed by a showjump round which includes doing pastor the course with your horse, quickly grabbing your dog and doing some more jumps with the dog. A hoot. Sort of a combined training with the time taken for the course not penalties used. Thankyou to rent a dog Chilli.
Went have a lesson today, but ended up cancelling once I got there as Occy was lumpy. Really lumpy. Even his lips were swollen. Don’t think his bit would have fitted. So the money I saved on the lesson went straight on anti histamines. Lucky Kurt was there. Apparently a lot of horses lumpy this year, but who knows what set Occy off.

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
