Friday’s Five – Mini businesses any equestrian can start to earn extra money

  You do not have to be a full-time professional rider, groom, farrier, etc. to make money in the horse industry. Many riders find part-time summer jobs to help pay for their horse expenses. Skip waiting tables this summer and start up a mini-business instead. You will rake in some extra cash, while still spending all of your time around horses. These business ideas will help you earn more money so you can spend more on your horses: 5) Braiding at events – Instead of heading back to your hotel after you finish braiding your own horse, braid other people’s…

How to own riding flying changes – It’s not that complicated

  So, it is not my place to comment on four-star riders’ dressage. But after watching the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI4* and Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials CCI4* on the live stream I realized eventers are still struggling with flying changes. Sure, ultra-fit event horses get tense in that big atmosphere in the dressage ring, and a horse with a usual great change could suddenly have a meltdown. But there were a few horses that looked like they had never been schooled in their changes. Now, I am not claiming I am some flying change guru, but I…

He struggles with nerves on the flat just at the moment but produced two stunning jumping rounds and would've gained valuable experience being subjected to the wonderful atmosphere Chatsworth produces. The Snoop Troop's CORRAGGIO Z (Snoop) was extremely excited be…

Essential advice to keep your horse’s hooves healthy

  With a barnful of Thoroughbreds, I’ve seen my share of less-than-ideal feet. And the old saying is true: “No hoof, no horse.” Through a combination of an EXCELLENT farrier and proper management, I’ve been able to improve some horses’ feet and help them stay sound to do their jobs. Your Farrier First of all, I cannot stress enough that an educated, experienced, quality farrier is a must– someone who knows how to balance a foot, and understands how the horse’s feet will impact how the whole animal moves. My farrier is dedicated to improving his own skills and knowledge,…
