Let them be horses.
Turn them out, let them run.
Let them buck, let them leap, rather in the field than the arena, right?
Give them a herd, even a herd of two.
Let them be with other horses, what’s a life without friends?
Give them downtime, not just days off riding, but days to enjoy life.
Happy horses are trainable horses.
Take the rug off, let them feel the sun.
Let them roll in the mud, a little dirt never hurt anyone.
Escape the arena and explore, don’t stick to the well worn path.
The most beautiful places are usually found by accident.
Showing them how much you love them doesn’t have to come from buying expensive things.
You can buy every rug, all the boots, the best tack, wash them, groom them, feed them, put them in the best yard, with the best facilities and wrap them up in cotton wool, but one day you’ll realise the best thing you could possibly do...
.. is just let them be horses.
For all the riders who have not learned distances, here is a simple list.
What we do is to take a tape measure, and a roll of duct tape, and put a piece of tape at the edge of the barn aisle every 12 feet, until we run out of aisle.
Then, walk it, over and over, until we get four of our paces per piece of duct tape, in other words, each stride is three feet.
So, the math:
A one stride in and out is 24 feet, 6 for where you land, one 12 foot stride, 6 for where you take off.
2 strides=36 feet. 3 strides= 48 feet. 4 strides=60 feet. 5 strides=72 feet. Beyond five strides, many riders just ride off their eye.
Now, sure, not every horse lands in 6 exact feet, takes one or more exact 12 foot strides, and leaves the ground an exact 6 feet in front of the next fence, but that is the usual assumption that course builders use, so you need to learn it.
For gymnastics, like what Bert De Nemethy is doing in this picture, trot poles or cavaletti will be roughly 4 1/2 to 5 feet apart.
A bounce will be anywhere from 9-11 feet. A 1 stride, 18-20 feet. A 2 stride, 30 to maybe 33 feet. These distances are shorter, because the horse enters the line at a trot, not at a canter.
Any jumping rider who wants to get to be any good at the craft will spend hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of hours in a jump ring watching, studying, walking, setting jumps, learning all of this.
This intense interest ALWAYS differentiates the people who are serious from the dilettantes. It is absolutely your choice which you want to be.
