Hello and welcome to the blog!
My name is Beth. I am a 27 year old equestrian, originally from Scotland, though now I live in Queensland, Australia. I have the pleasure of owning Bo. He is a 14.2hh Welsh Section D gelding but he is back in Scotland living his best life retired and being looked after (spoiled really) by my mum.
At the moment, I do not have a horse in Australia because my husband and I are still finding our way in our new country. I do have plans to get one as soon as I sensibly can, but in the meantime, I have a lovely share horse to ride named Echo. You can find our more about her here.
I’d love to get an allrounder that I can dabble in different disciplines with. Australia has a mixed riding culture between western and english riding so I’m definitely going to be switching a lot between these.
I started this blog in December 2019 as an online journal of my equestrian life. As well as this, I also provide information on training methods that I use as well as horse care in general based on my own experience. I especially enjoy the behavioural aspects of working with horses so relationship building and understanding equine behaviour is a large feature.
I have learned a lot in my time with horses. I’ve worked with many different kinds and temperaments and I’d like to share some of the things I have come to learn in that time and share my journey.
Disclaimer- any information recited in this blog is either gained through my own experience or through appropriate sources which will be suitably referenced in due course. I do not claim to know everything or advocate the only way with horses. What I know is my way, and I’m always open to new understandings.
