Keep it simple……

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season, and the fresh new year is bringing new motivation to get back in the saddle, and chipping away at your goals for 2021. As a coach and rider, I often find myself getting a little obsessed and pedantic about the most basicContinue reading “Keep it simple……”

Mirror, Mirror……….

Long time between posts! Life has been a bit out of control the last 6 months, but on the eve of my 40th birthday, i feel inspired and ready to start writing again, and reflect on some of the biggest lessons i have learnt this year. It will be pretty self indulgent, but i amContinue reading “Mirror, Mirror……….”

One man’s trash………

I have a confession to make. I have a new man in my life, and I am a little bit in love. He isn’t my usual type. He is shorter than I would usually go for, with red hair, pixie ears and exotic good looks. His name is Bazzy, and he is an 8yo purebredContinue reading “One man’s trash………”

A little can add up to a lot……

After all these weeks of uncertainty, it is fantastic to finally start to see a light at the end of the tunnel! While a lot of people have been making the most of their netflix subscriptions during social distancing, it would seem horse riders have been hitting the training hard and not giving up onContinue reading “A little can add up to a lot……”

Always look on the bright side of life……..

Hey everyone! Long time between posts, I know. Truth be told, I have been lacking a bit of mojo lately, and struggling to come up with a topic, so I apologise if this post is a bit like an episode of Seinfeld. 😝 What a strange world we are all existing in at the moment!Continue reading “Always look on the bright side of life……..”

A time to reflect………

The weekend saw Tommy and I head off to Pittsworth Show, for a crack at the 1.00m and 1.10m showjumping classes. It was Tommy’s first full on ag show, so i wasn’t sure what to expect from him, but despite dump trucks and bobcats in the warm up arena, the woodchop right next to ourContinue reading “A time to reflect………”

The nut behind the wheel…..

A common issue I encounter as a coach, are riders who have had a bad horse related accident, and are struggling to cope with their nerves and anxiety when they return to riding. I have never been a nervous rider, so although I could empathise with these riders, I guess I never entirely understood theirContinue reading “The nut behind the wheel…..”

A burden of proof……..

The last couple of weeks have brought some much needed rain to the Lockyer Valley, and it is wonderful to see all the paddocks a glorious shade of bright green again! Horse owners are rejoicing, because with it comes a reprieve from the enormous feed bills we have all been enduring for so long, andContinue reading “A burden of proof……..”

Teamwork makes the dream work…..

On the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Equestrian Qld Annual Awards evening at the Victoria Park Golf Club in Brisbane. The venue was beautiful and it was wonderful to see so many supporters of our sport in attendance. Everyone looked so glamorous and, as always, it was a top night! This year,Continue reading “Teamwork makes the dream work…..”

The Event of the Year!!

My favourite event of the year is this weekend! We are off to the Equestrian Queensland Awards night on Saturday in Brisbane. It is a fantastic night out, celebrating excellence and achievement in our sport, and it is great to see everyone out of their riding gear and all glammed up. It is always aContinue reading “The Event of the Year!!”
