My ring side cohorts... Tinker, and Swiffer the barn cat! Hanging out with me while helping LF owner Sara with her mare before wrapping up for the day yesterday!

Been a long week... Lots of lounging and keeping horses fit while wanja is away at Devon... As well as getting a head start on cleaning and organizing before the Gary Rockwell clinic scheduled for the first weekend in November... One of my projects for this week was setting up the white arena boarder and flower pots (sans flowers... Which are being used at Devon for stall front decor! Lol) to get the horses prepped and geared up for the BLMs in Lexington October 10th-13th.

I know it's been a while since my last update, but figured I would start with a few candids of our resident spotty stallion, Roscoe... He religiously takes a nap at the same time every morning. This is a special dude for sure... So personable and sweet!

To improve your rein connection...

"Imagine your point of contact with the bit is in your elbows, triceps and back, and that your arms, wrists and hands are just extensions of the reins. This allows the connection to be held in your body rather than your hands and allows the hands and arms to be soft." —Jessica Miller

#TBT How to Ride the Posting Trot: A Skeletal View
Posting trot is a gait many riders struggle to learn and struggle to do well. It may feel difficult to “stay with the movement” of the horse, or to avoid the feeling of easily being thrown off balance.

We are often taught rising trot with the chant of up, down, up, down, but the actual movement of posting isn’t really about going up and down.

Also, one of the most common pieces of riding advice, “heels down”, when done in the wrong way, can actually make posting much more difficult.

In the video below, Wendy Murdoch shows how to ride an effortless posting trot, using a horse and rider skeleton to show the correct movement.

I was hiking with a friend and student of mine, an amateur rider who brought her last horse up to the FEI-level in dressage. Her next project is a young, athletic Warmblood mare who was, at the time, hissing and spitting about the application of leg, as the young and athletic Warmblood mares of the....

Franklin Equine Services will be undergoing a name change soon. I will be keeping the page active, however since gears are shifting to training, sales and competition rather than grooming and farriery, a name change is due.

For my friends and family and clients who have followed this page since the beginning, I will be posting photos, videos and updates to our latest adventures and shinanagins.

Stay tuned to stay updated on upcoming activities and weekly highlights!

ISO: horses that need worked/schooled in the Sterling, Ashburn, Greatfalls, Leesburg, Chantily, Hamilton, Purcellville and Waterford areas of VIRGINIA!!!!

I am a 23 yr old equestrian, have been riding since i was 4yrs old and have experience working with and riding FEI level dressage horses of all levels. I also have experience with eventers, jumpers, hunters and western diciplines. I have done endurance and have logged hundreds if not more of blood, sweat and tears on the trails. I have started babies, finished greenies and reschooled seasoned show and companion horses. I may be almost 6' tall, but i can ride the ponies well (have a 13.2 POA who i compete in eventing with). I can also hitch and drive a single.

I charge $40 per horse for 1 hour ($30 for multiple horses at the same facility.) I will tack up and cool down myself.

If interested call 434-258-1611, email me at [email protected] or message me here on facebook.
