Proud of this duo at Washington International Horse Show Regional, owner bred,trained and ridden. It’s always so rewarding to help these young hunters along the way and watch their progress. They made big leaps this week and put down some lovely trips. So proud and pleased with all your hard work Elizabeth and the handsome Cabalero. #Americanbred #Cabalito #BabyGreen #BabyGreenHunters #WIHS #WIHSRegional #MorvenPark Jennifer Rogala Elizabeth Capor PC: Dan Capor

A little late as usual, but we had a great time last weekend at Country Hill. All the girls rode well and achieved some goals! Hailey and Elle rode to good ribbons. Fiona and Wesley had a good first outing together and even won a trip over fences. Thanks to everyone for putting on a fun show as always. It was nice to see everyone!

I often encounter puppy paws 🐾 in clinics. I borrowed this term from Cynthia Hankins, it is a very, very difficult flaw for a rider to fix without really making a conscious effort to do so. A trainer can repeat over and over again, “hand angle,” but it is so subconscious to the rider, that it just seems to take forever to correct it.
Here’s what I’ve used with students and have been successful with - the drug store sells a brace for sprained wrists that prevents the wrist from bending. This brace does allow one to hold the reins, as the fingers have freedom of movement. I have had success curing the problem by having the rider wear them every time they ride, except in shows. It may take a few months, but the benefits are so worth the time.

If you were ever a fan of the Thelwell ponies and cartoons, this is exciting news! And if you have a special Shetland pony, you might be just become famous!!! #thelwellponies

From https://everythinghorseuk.co.uk/

Thelwell Movie Sets To Bring Cartoon To Life
A Thelwell movie sets to bring the cartoon to life, and the franchise are now on the hunt for the starring roles!

Norman Thelwell is best known for his hilarious cartoons of little girls on plump ponies. First featured in Punch Magazine in the 1960’s, the cartoon is now making its way to the silver screen.

Striking a deal to transform the cartoon into a live-action feature film, the Thelwell family hope that the deal will breathe life into the beloved cartoon and attract a new generation of Thelwell lovers.

So, the search has been launched for a girl to play the enthusiastic rider, Penelope. Meanwhile, a cheeky pony is also being headhunted for the movie to play the rebellious, Merrylegs.

The casting team are looking out for Shetlands and Welsh Mountain ponies to be cast as Merrylegs. It is encouraged that anyone who thinks they have a pony that would make the perfect Merrylegs should contact the production company, Blenheim Films.

The film will be called Merrylegs: The Movie and will be set in the foothills of Snowdonia, North Wales. Filming will begin later this year.

Recently speaking to the Telegraph, Penny, Thelwell’s daughter and inspiration for the main character of his cartoons, explained the shift from paper to screen;

There are a lot of fans who say, ‘My grandmother gave the book to my mother, they’re in the attic somewhere.’ And there are a lot of people who like to follow his work, and they know the ponies, but they don’t know the name ‘Thelwell’.”

“They know the designs but the name has become a bit of a thing of the past so it’s a wonderful way to bring it back to a new generation while being very nostalgic for the people who grew up with it.”

A listener pulled this quote from my most recent podcast, and I think it’s worth talking about here too… Whatever your “it” is (jumping your first 1.20m, asking your trainer if you can move up to a new division, learning to be comfortable going first in a lesson, doing a derby, asking for help) - know that your motivation and desire are the KEYS to your progress. 🙌🏼

What do you want? What goals motivate you? What sets you in fire when you think about it? Align with your passion instead of your fear and you are ON YOUR WAY!!! 👊🏼

I believe in all of you so much. You can absolutely do it, whatever “it” is. ⚡️💫⚡️

Now the fall is important.

‘Let your child have a bad ride.
I know you want to protect them from the hardships of this world.
I know you want to give them success and good experiences.
I know you don't want to see them get hurt. To see them fall. To see them fail.
But, hear me out, let your child have a bad ride.
Let them cry the tears of frustration.
Let them shake the sand out from the inside of their riding pants.
Let them face the fear building inside of them.
Let them step back on again.
Yes, let your child have a bad ride.
Let them hate the horse that challenges them.
Let them learn what fight and passion and ambition mean.
Let them realize that when they refuse to quit the horse will take the time to listen.
Grant them the joy of realizing that they are connecting with another living being.
Grant them the joy of realizing that they, although they are small, can be powerful.
Grant them the joy of seeing their hard work pay off, through the days of tears can come a love unspeakable.
Yes, let your child have a bad ride.
Afterall, life will grant us plenty of them.’

Always a good read

Always a good read

"Am I a good rider?" she asked, pensively, sat upon her 14.2 cob, covered in poo stains that she couldn’t quite get out before her lesson, that she had persuaded her mum to buy a year ago for just £400 as he wasn’t wanted any more.

"Why do you ask that?" her instructor replied, for she knew how this young girl felt - her eyes often lingered somewhere in between her horse's ears or the other side of the school when teaching.

"Because I want to be one."

Her instructor pondered on this for a good few minutes, whilst reassuring the nervous cob in front, and then said:
"A good rider is not someone who buys flashy horses and competes every Saturday and makes it to the top within a year.
A good rider is not someone who jumps the highest jumps or owns the fastest horse.
A good rider isn’t made just because they’ve been riding since they were 3.
A good rider is not someone who can move their forward horse forward...

No..........

A good rider is that pony clubber you see fall off every time she gets on something new, yet still gets back on with a smile on her face.
A good rider is that girl who cries in the tack room because of how her horse behaved and how hard it’s been to cope watching everyone else be successful, but to her it seems like she is the only one failing, yet still rewards her horse with a treat and a smile because at least he was better than last time.
A good rider is the boy with the angel horse, yet doesn’t claim any of its successes for himself. 'It was all him,' he would say, 'I just sat to it.’
A good rider listens.
A good rider is soft.
A good rider makes sure the horse is always happy,
As a matter of fact, a good rider often has nothing to do with the riding.
If you love it, and you try, and you try again, even when you fall off and it was your fault, even when people point because your seat isn’t quite as deep as they’d prefer, if you never give up, that’s what makes a good rider."
