As of 2004 05 01 Lucky is mine :). I'm soooo happy! There's some photos of him here.
I ride about five times a week, I thought it would be too much and get boring -- nothing of a kind.
We are playing Parelli's Seven games with Lucky. Have progressed only to the third of them, but he seems to be thoroughly enjoying what we do and getting to be a lot more good natured and respectfull.
I ride in Bendoriai. Moved here from Prosperas riding school. It is so much better for Lucky here -- big pastures, he's out on them 24/7. He's gotten a lot better -- less spooky, does not try to run away with me, etc.
Some horsey rants from me. Just random stuff related to horses. Maybe some nice photos or even usefull information from time to time.
I surf the web looking for information about horses quite a lot. Here's some of the usefull stuff that I found:
- Chronological photocalendar of Lucky's hooves.
- Iron Free Hoof - Ironfreehoof.com has been developed to support the barefoot horse. We have worked to make this site a good resource for evaluating overall balance, finding the live sole plane, determining heel height, and dealing with the edges of the hoof. We have set up this site to help horse owners, trimmers, and farriers recognize basic landmarks.
- Barefoot for Soundness - There is a way to trim so the barefoot horse is not sore. Instructions for a natural, "wild horse" type of barefoot trim.
- Tribe Equus - Tribe Equus as they were born to be... High Performance Barefoot Horses
- Natural horsetrim - a website about treating founder (Chronic Laminitis) without horseshoes. Very informative and not too technical for a layman to understand.
- Parelli.com - Pat Parelli's official website.
- Parelli's Seven Games - a website with detailed enough descriptions of Pat Parelli's seven games.
- Equusite - an informative webiste with some articles about problem horses and how to deal with them and nice photos of horses.
- Classical dressage - a website dedicated to classical dressage and its masters. Full of very good and informative articles about riding in general and dressage in particular.
- Horse breeds - many (maybe even all) horse breeds with detailed descriptions and photos.
