I am a horse owner, trainer and keen freelance writer that is hoping to combine all three of my passions. I currently have two horses of my own in work, a section A and a section D. The section A is a driving pony that I broke to harness last year and we have owned her since both she and I were quite small. The Section D mare is a beautiful girl that I purchased a couple of months ago. She is a little nervous but I am working with her and she is starting to come around and is a brilliant pony.

Horses... Oh yes, I do love them, but sometimes they make you want to bang your head against a wall. I am currently incredibly grumpy and sleep deprived... why? More specifically, my darling section D. That's right, Stella. Combined with the beauty in the...

The girls stayed in last night due to the weather and the fact that they are both little fat monsters! So having rectified the two party locations that they call stables (I mean seriously I have never seen a section A produce so much poo...)

Apologies for the lack of posts in the last day or so. I have been flat out at work and home trying to get organized. The girls have moved paddocks, and are appreciating the extra grass, even if it is minimal. Thimble is busy getting fit, although we miss...
