Trail rides and wildlife


Went for a ride out the back today with Occy. The tracks are actually starting to dry out and are now just about perfect for riding on without having to worry too much about slipping. Will make it more enjoyable and safer to school over the small selection of jumps that I have.
Upgraded my Trakhener and made it a bit more looky for Occy. Now just thinking of filling it full of water and sharks or crocodiles.
Back to the trail ride, got barked at by a deer and startled a wallaby right next to the track. Occy hardly blinked. He might make a good trail horse yet. Jarrah would have jumped out of his skin with the deer. Regards Walter

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
