Saw this photo on Pinterest and wanted to explain something about it. Fun fact: some of the herds in Cumbria that still run feral fell ponies use a heavy paint on the chests of the stallions. When they breed the mares, the paint rubs off onto the mares too, so the owner knows if she's been bred or not. This is the Murthwaite stud...I know this from when I lived and worked on a Fell Pony stud in the Lake District. It's really fun when you see a herd of sheep with several rams and they're all blue, yellow, red, and green colored 😍 #fellpony #sheep #horses #equestrians #horsesofinstagram #red #stallion #animalhusbandry
Goals this year - to rock another show the way I did Pony Cup - open 1st, training and intro champion and 2nd level reserve champion AND reserve champion high score of the show. It will be strange to compete ponies other than Jason, but he'll have his time again to shine! #goals #horseshows #equestrian #rrp2018 @lc_designs_horsewear
We have one lone easter egger that lost its buddy and has been getting extra attention because it's alone...and has been getting extra friendly. So adorable 😍🐥 #housechicken #easteregger #chicksofinstagram #chickensofinstagram #backyardchickens #bluelacedredeasteregger
Lola's spanish walk (well, Spanish halt on that day 😂) almost goes up to my shoulder! #classicaldressage #dressage #whyirideponies #mindblown #spanishwalk #warmblood
Let the return fitness begin! #fellpony #instapony #spring #horsebackriding #equestrianlife #dressage
(Apologies for the worthless camera angle) Going to put this out there and show some of the pieces to the process. I play around with piaffe and school halt periodically with Jason, but lately I've been combining them to improve his piaffe and hopefully move closer to levade. By asking him to lean back and shift more weight behind and then asking for piaffe steps, the amount he's sitting is increased and it keeps him bending all of his joints much better. He had a tendency to want to prop his bum up and brace too much, but this is my second day combining these two and I can see improvement already. The tempo will even out as his back right improves in strength and coordination. Right now it struggles with the increased challenge 💪🏻🤓. #piaffe #dressage #dressagepony #poniesofinstagram #fellpony #dalespony #ponypower #dressageofinstagram #artoflightness #schoolhalt #weighttraining
