This week's post is for you if you've ever run out of enthusiasm halfway through a schooling session! It happens and we're all human but this simple idea means you'll leave the school feeling like you've achieved something.
There's also exciting news about my new 121 video training scheme. Looking forward to seeing you and your horse. :)

Changing the rein sounds simple but how much do you really do? If you bombard your horse with new aids and requests how can he ever settle and understand you?! Check out some top tips on using ground poles to help you too.

Call me slow but I'm no techn-geek! I've been a fan of dropbox.com for a year now. I love the fact that the computer can crash and my work still exists. But recently it's proved its worth when I found my computer wouldn't let me watch videos, nor would my email account allow me to send them. An emergency with a horse meant I shared folders with vets and owners and it made life so much easier.
The thing is I keep running out of space and I didn't really want to pay for more. Et voila! Here's Google drive! Identical in format, easy to use and offering the same amount of free storage - added to that the fact I can have both on my pc and I'm one very happy Google account holder :)

If you haven't tried it already check it out - upload your photos and you'll never need a disc or memory stick again.

This you have to watch - one fantastic, inspirational rider. One round of show jumps isn't a problem for most riders but this one is blind! Amazing. Para show jumping, guided blind.
