Enzo is a 16hh Andalusian x Welsh, 2010

He joined us July 2017

Follow the blog posts to see our journey - one without any plans just seeing where the road leads. 

November 5, 2018

I have been doing some in-hand work with Enzo for the last week as he has been come the dominant horse in the field for the first time ever. This has meant he is now testing the boundaries so in-hand work is really useful just to remind him where our communication lies...

I have always been the one riding Enzo since I bought him, which works well for me. However in my mind if one day I am ill or something happens to me then Enzo would not be prepared for another rider. Yes he would work in a way anyone could ride but with him having an...

I have a very clever friend who knows how to work a camera. So I "borrowed" her to take some awesome pictures of Enzo and I.

It came at an ideal time as I had just brought him back into work, again, after he had a cut on the edge of his girth. It happened out in the fie...

... training has started.

Our jump is a couple of poles between wings just above the ground. Enzo's jump is to step over it at a walk. All the small steps count; a win with a small step leads to another win that can keep building.

Although the jump size and style is smal...

So I have started the process towards riding bridleless. Ensuring voice control works and having a headcollar on for back up.

You know the hardest thing?


Just like when you go to your first show. 

But I also felt pressure. Why? Because I needed to get it right, I n...

Since the last post there is a lot to write. I guess that's the same every time I blog - I need to do these a little bit more regularly. Then maybe I can write more detailed blogs and remember everything.

The last time I wrote everything was going well and I was blind t...

So that's what they keep saying, although I look out of my window and I am not so sure.

Better weather, more riding! That is what I keep hoping. But luckily for me it doesn't matter too much at the moment. Why? Because Enzo is at a temporary home that includes an arena...

We are no longer at the same yard we started at. The weird things is that a simple change like this can make a HUGE difference to everything. We were far too stressed at the first yard that Enzo could not concentrate on doing simple things like going backwards in-hand....

I find blogging difficult; yet love it as it keeps a record on the progress with the horses. But how do you make every day situations seem exciting?Trick is you don't. But the horses sure do as Enzo proved today. 

I guess I should at least update Enzo's progress fi...

July 8, 2017

So as many of you may know, I recently (a couple of months ago) had to make the hardest decision for my once in a lifetime horse. I never thought I would get another horse until a good year had passed. Time to move from Harry.

So why have I ended up with this handsome c...
