Everyone reading this.. please go put a lolly in your mouth and hold it there- do not chew or anything… just wait… what happens when it’s there?
You salivate… does this mean you are in pain? Or you aren’t happy?
Now stop saying horses that salivate with a bit in it’s mouth means it’s most definitely in pain.
Doesn’t that mean they’re working and accepting the bit?
Indeed it does. Indeed. It. Does.
that face though
This is the funniest face I’ve ever seen a horse make

you know it’s bad when you read the word “equation” as “equitation”
What began as a nice picture of my friend turned into… well… you can see
Oh my gosh
I’d just like to share a quick story with everyone.
This is my horse George when he was recovering from an impaction. I thought I was going to lose him. Buying a four year old, I never expected to have to face any serious medical problems until he was older, preferably much older, but George had other plans and for the longest week of my life I watched him battle his own body to stay alive.
Life is crazy, but more than that, life is short. So stay that extra hour at the barn when you’ve got it. Go out there even when it’s too wet to ride, just to see your horse. Ride when other people think it’s too cold. Ride when you bearly have the time. Ride when you feel tired. Ride when you’re sad. Ride when you’re ecstatic. Go on a trail ride instead of doing a hard workout. Try riding bareback. Or work on groundwork. For God’s sake just spend time with your horse. Bring them treats even when other people think you’re “spoiling” them. More than anything, never forget how easily they can be taken away from you. I did, and I’ll never make that mistake again.
Wow. I love this. Thank you, and I’m so happy to hear he pulled through
