Wyena #Showjumping

Sweaty_occy

Showjumping today just for something different. Made it to the jump off in the 2 phase and cleared that, but speed is not Occy’s thing really in an arena so 3rd place. Knocked a rail in the AM7 but managed another 3rd place as only 2 made it to the jump off. And we must have looked reasonably pretty as we got 3rd for the Equitation also. Quite warm so Occy got a cool wash down for his efforts.

Busy couple of weeks #riding – post your free horse ads at www.horseoz.com/forsale now

Had a busy couple of weeks, but what’s new. Even had a week off from the job that keeps my horses in the manner to which they have become accustomed. Did some Crosscountry, dressage and Showjumping schooling always trying to get Occy to use that big behind of his. Followed this up with a run at Tonimbuk horse trials where we placed a creditable 3rd with a double clear just 1.2 penalties behind the winner. Looks like Occy didn’t use that behind of his enough in the free rein walk where we only scored a 5. Oh well, one day.

Haven’t had this many horses shod at once up here for a while now. 2 of mine and the 2 agisted horses. Takes up most of the morning. Drilled and tapped Occy’s shoes for studs. He has quite big feet using a size 7 or a 3 depending on brand of shoe.

More jumps on my Crosscountry course

Trakhener

Keep on adding to my mini Crosscountry course. Now have 12 jumps, some with a choice of sizes like this trakhener. Most are just logs in various configurations, but also have an apex, a drop and a house. No water though 😦

Great video: Amish horse team pulls 18-wheeler from snow | Khou.com – Video

One milk truck driver had the ride of his life on Monday after being rescued by a crew of horses in Ottawa, Pennsylvania.

The truck got stuck in a snow bank and couldn’t move. An unlikely rescue team appeared to pull the truck and driver out. An Amish man and his four horses stepped into action and towed the truck back on course.

The rescue was all caught on tape by a local passerby.

No one was injured during the rescue effort.
