john French says jumping on foot helps to see distances. So here we are iequitate

Is that actually a thing?? Haha this would be such a good way for people to start seeing distances better with out screwing up their horses… And TBA if I’m jogging I’m always looking at my ‘distances’ with the cracks in the sidewalk…

Anonymous asked: For the anon asking about distances, consistent pace is one of the most important things you can have, try counting one, two, one, two etc in your head or singing a song to have a beat to follow. keep the pace consistent and the distances will present themselves

Went and visited a really nice stable today…Yann Candele and Eric Lamaze have both trained out of this barn in the past!

Looks sorta like a mental institution turned riding facility O__o

There is a mare i want

Sooo very badly. Shes beautiful and has great movement, great bloodlines, and a great temperament, and hasn’t been tainted or ruined yet. She is green and a little old to be green, but i’d rather it that way, think of how long she will last as opposed to horses that are started early and jumped to death early! 

But school is screwing me over…. i need to be working so i can buy her!! I would seriously go see her and have her vetted if i wasn’t in school.. ugh ugh ugh. she’s like the diamond in the rough and for a song too! she would be a sales horse and i really think she could be worth something with a few miles and schooling. i’m like running through scenarios in my mind on how to get her, from going into debt to finding a rich bf. and i’m not even kidding.

Like she’s special and i want her. I’ve never felt this strongly about a horse before… even the two that i own… and i freaking don’t know how to get her!! it’s making me batty. i can only hope and pray and cross my fingers and knock on wood that she’ll be available in 5 months when i’m out and hopefully working again. if she slips through my fingers for want of 4grand i will have a melt down.

and don’t tell me there will be others, because she is special.

Riding Sterling for B mid lesson to help her understand what was going on when she was unintentionally bending Sterling to the outside while riding to fences - and how to try fixing it.
Yes the stirrups are short. I didn’t adjust them from B’s length and she’s 10, so.

wtf

I’ve heard people claim he has artificial legs, but I don’t think that is true.

Regardless, that horse is a saint for putting up with that.

How in the Hell…..

I doubt he’s able to have kids…. 

The story I heard was that he is a polo player who said that jumping was easy so his jumper friend dared him to jump the course….
