Snow Ponies

It's the end of my first week back at university and it has been made a little trickier than usual because the ground is covered in snow. The funny thing about living in Scotland is that you get 4 seasons in a day but we are not used to snow. So when we do get... Continue Reading →


A Sunday Horse

Do you ever feel like your motivation is just gone? Recently I have felt like that with the horses, my motivation to ride has been over-ridden by how long it takes to do all the yard chores, by having one of my horses being lame and having abscesses and by the other having rain scald....

I Don’t Have Dreams, I Have Plans

Spike loves company

I have been desperately struggling to deal with the fact that there are only 24hrs in the day- this does not bode well with the amount I need to squeeze in. Wednesday was my day off university so after getting everything done that I wanted to do with my work, I decided to reward myself... Continue Reading →

Turnout boots anyone?

Mud mud mud- the cause of much drama at my yard of late, and probably with many scottish horsey people right now.
