No I don't do human and yes it would be really great to work together, refer each other.

As you will know an imbalance in the horse may well be caused by an imbalance in the rider. Working together to help a horse and rider partnership would be great.

I have a friend based in South Yorkshire who does NLP to help with rider confidence http://www.ashesnlpcoaching.co.uk/. I just thought your forum members might like to know about him.

we took Guinness to his first show yesterday . he is by no means furnished properly yet , and is in fact growing - so will end up a maxi cob - I didnt want that , too far to fall! but we came back with a rosette in the ridden coloured , which was al we could have hoped for. Right lead canter still not sorted! but he was such a good boy , fazed by nothing , and todmorden is a busy show with small rings jammed up near tents and the crowd. As the class walked by the bartent the barmen slooshed the water off the roof-twice! , making a spooky corner !
So all in all we were very pleased. He ll do better in cob rahter than coloured classes, so its those we ll be aiming for. We did meet someone who knew us from the 'Phillip Pembroke' days - their stallion [now gelded ] is 30 yrs old and still going strong - lucky them!

BTW, 2 have dropped out of later camp, so now 3 places are available!

Some members have had problems logging on here - I do apologise , and hope its rectified soon!
There is only 1 place left on second camp.
Fields for the 2 camps are looking good! Cows removed , harrowed etc , and going should be fine , for the first camp at least! The weather might have other plans by August!
Finding a 'family' horse , safe and sane , but useful enough to show, hunt etc is proving no easy task.Today I went to see a 15.0, but so tense I didnt dare ride him! I know I m windy these days - blame anno domini, but basic schooling seems to be lacking in many horses. I have decided that any horse needing 6 months retraining is not an option for me.
I hope everyone is enjoying their riding - Guinness is schooling so well now , getting softer and lighter , and staying relaxed and loose. Even Wills is chillaxing out hacking, which is just perfect!

I know what you mean. some people don't understand that the basics are so important.

Of course sports massage can help to calm a horse but long term it has to be a program of schooling as well as therapy.

Glad that Guiness is going well for you and I look forward to meeting him.

Sounds like Darcie (my horse) might benefit from yours or Charlie's help. She has started to work reasonably well (we got 6th in ridden ex racehorse at North Yorkshire County Show) but was told she need more schooling. She holds a lot of tension in her jaw and head... therefore is not softening and engaging with the bit..

We would be glad to help!So many horses, exracers to average plod arounds are so unschooled and carry a lot of tension. We have found N H wonderful for softening horses , and some can be quite a challenge.
The family that pro showed Ben for us won ROR at hickstead recently. Its now a very popular class with huge entries- well there are alot of TBs out there needing another job! Many years ago I used to ride a very pretty TB called Baz, who d been bought as a yearling for 100 000, but sold out of racing for about a 1000 within a couple of years!
On the massage side, I m hoping , should York college ever acknowedge I exist, to enrol for a human masage course, starting Sept. This will hopefully keep me gainfully employed in the treatment room , alongside the Alexander Tech.

I have ideas about horse and rider partnerships that I would love to talk to you about, especially if you do human massage. Often as you will know riders look to getting their horses treated but unless they also get themselves treated the problem will only re occur. I would like to have someone to reccomend riders too. I am very crooked and so is Darcie the problem is we are both weak on the same side which doubles the problem.....

Am hoping that the people at your camp might have some interesting questions.....

If anyone does have a question about your horse you can ask me here before the date or e mail me privately kathy@kbequinetherapy.co.uk or of course save it until the 16th...

Kathy, hi

Yes, it's hard to believe that we're only a fortnight away from the first Summer Camp of the year.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your work, I won't have a horse with me this year but there'll be a wide selection for you to look at and give us some pointers.

It's glorious weather today - not too hot and not too cold, so if anyone's got any direct line to Him who organises the weather, if you can just have a quiet word that this will do fine I think we'd all be grateful smiley

The August camp is now almost full as well. I've spoken to recently who are interested in the camp and if they do decide to come that'll be another full house.

Perhaps next year we ought to look at having one in the south as well as one (or two?) oop north?

As usual, any last minute concerns or queries (about either camp) just write to me at liz@receptional.com

Sorry to hear about your fruitless trip Judith - but it still amazes me how people simply offer blatant lies in their need to offload a horse.

cheers

Liz

Why am I addicted to showing - because when you get rosettes, a sash and a little plaque, its just great! Guinness was at a show today, with very few entries , but it ws lovely to see C and G get the championship.G was in a daze, as the first class started about 8 minutes after we pulled up at the showground!
Yes, summer camp nearly upon us , and second camp full. Not much time for showing........

Less than a week to camp! Weather ok at the moment , tho rain forecast , by the end pf the week. C filling in trench dug to move electric cable , and 1 of my jobs will be to top the field for a nice level sward for the camp participants!
Today , we gained another horse - Barney is a skewbald cob aged 17, mainly used for driving . Belonging to our sons'girlfriends family, we know he s genuine and shall keep Tessa and me busy ! He looks good fun but makes Ben and G seem very narrow. Only ever sat on a horse that was as wide! And who knows , perhaps I ll get back to driivng....In his youth Barney pulled a trap to Appleby , so good in traffic!

Well done to Guinness on bringing the rosettes home from his showing expedition laugh

How exciting to have a new horse come home - fingers crossed Barney settles in well and does his job calmly. Keep us informed smiley

Only a few days now until we all descend on you for the first Summer Camp of the year. Unfortunately Ann and Cal won't be with us as Cal's got a mystery lameness issue so can't come and join in the fun - you'll both be sadly missed.

If anyone's got any queries about either camp do let me know.

The second Summer Camp in August is almost full now - whenever one person drops out another two seem keen to come which is really brilliant laugh

Judith - hang onto that fine weather for another week please!

Yes, summer camp nearly upon us - and our computers'tower' has died , so we ve only the laptop , til Thurs , therefore emails wont be answered, as we can only receive them on the' big' computer.
Sorry that Cal is lame- hope he gets better soon! Ann and he are regulars , so will be missed.
Today I topped the field where you ll be riding & groundskill-ing , so it looks neat!
Barney Topham was ridden this morning , and like the driving horse he is , stormed up every incline! he s settling in fine and is a real character.
Whilst topping the field I noticed a heifer calving , and of course was alone for a few hours , but luckily Rich appeared ad we got her in , but vet needed to calve her . She needed an epidural, and nearly had to have an episiotomy [ scalpel at he ready!] but luckily the calf s head made it out before that was necessary. Calf doing well, mum still sore. I ve had to deforst colostrum for the calf , as mum stupidly let an older calf suckle her for weeks , and therefore no good colostrum left for baby
For calf lovers , they ll still be inside this weekend!We have 11 other calves ranging from 6 months [ and looking like a bull] down to 2 weeks old. Eric the new bull is now very settled and fine with humans in his field.

At the Great Yorks show today, a filly we bred 2 yrs ago was placed in the hunter youngstock class. We were very pleased! Despite 2 coloured parents Ryemanor Incognito came out a real hunter bay , and at nearly 17hh at 2 yrs old is a working hunter in the making!
Also at the show was Lorenzo. I d not seen him before , and watched him warming up , he stands on 2 horses [ all grey Lusos ] and 'drives' others to the side and in front of him . He warmed up 2 stes of 5 -with 2 to stand on , and 3 infront , all in a line. he then warmed up with both sets of 5 together , so 6 infront and 4 behind . He entered the ring like this, and Gt yorks is the largest main ring in the country - proceeded to gallop around it , jumped all 10, and survived . Though the 10 got a little out of line at times amd his legs were almost the splits!
He then with various combinations of pairs , 4 s and 6 s jumped , weaved , jumped whilst dropping the reins!- all this at canter or gallo. very ompreesed with his balance and control - perhaps we shall work towards this on summer camp?! He ll be at Olympia this Dec , well worth seeing.
camp on Sat, but see some of you on Fri - weather a bit iffy , so heres hoping it doesnt rain too much!

Really Well done to Guiness!

Darcie and I competed in the ROR ex racehorse class on Wednesday at the Great Yorkshire Show. We were not really ready and I was so scared. Darcie has never been to such a show and every time I asked for canter thought she would give one of her big exited bucks, however she didn't, so we were safe. however she never really settled till she got into the White Rose ring! I really thought I might have to pull her. However what a star she behaved like an angel! and although she was not the best schooled she went nicely for the judge. My nerves however were shot, which didn't help her of course!!!! NEVER AGAIN.

Now what went wrong what am I going to do differently next year... tee hee.

Really getting excited about coming to camp tomorrow. Am going to try and get there early so that I can see what happens and maybe chat to the campers. Seee you all soon.

It was great having you Kathy, as our demo on the first day of camp.Sorry I didnt get to speak to you later , and hope you enjoyed watching the work outside. I suppose I m the lucky one , working indoors all the time , either in the house [ poor pupils having wet and cold feet!] or in the indoor school. yes, its rained heavily for2 days , and today it looks like similar . The gateways gettin deep and holding - will the trailers get out!!
Apart from the weather,i think everyone learning and participating well- as usual theres always so much to teach!
This is the first course/camp here at Cornborough, so hoping its not going to default weather fro the future!
