Unfortunately it is time to announce that I am no longer able to ride horses anymore. Due to a number of falls over the years and hitting the deck on more than one occasion. Let’s not count how many! It’s time to hang up my riding boots for good. It’s not been easy to come to terms with this as you can all imagine riding is a huge part of our lives.

To be told never to ride a horse again has been quite a big pill to swallow but unfortunately that’s the way it is. I want to take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who has used my services over the years.
There are far to many horses and ponies to mention individually that have come through the stable doors, some more challenging than others to say the least.

I have many happy memories to reminisce over. Some good, some bad! One thing for sure that I never gave up unless I had to. There is always one or two which were never going to work.

I will be carry on coaching as normal and continue to the best I can be. I will also have more time for lessons to.

I will still be having horses and ponies in at home for ground work, handling, youngstock, sales preparation and livery. But no backing and schooling as a riddens.

I maybe able to potter about on a very quiet horse in the future but for now my feet stay on the floor!

Thank you all again for so much fun and wonderful memories over the years.

True story ⤵️⤵️⤵️⤵️

I always ask anybody I teach what would you like to do in your lesson, I get various responses from don’t mind you chose? Can we jump? Can we learn a test etc ….

Last night teaching my final lesson my young rider (12) said to me can I learn more about the contact and how to get my pony to understand it. Of course I said.. contact is a tricky thing to teach as it’s so different and personal to every horse and rider. Contact is also something I have been struggling with my own horse and other horses over the years. At end of my lessons I always ask what did you learn today about your pony and yourself.

The most wonderful response came back… she said Lucy, I have learnt I can’t pull my pony into a contact I have to find. When my pony is relaxed my contact improved and he was more forwards! Dark nights are so worth it! #Ilovemyjob 🙌💗

A huge thank you to Bowen by Alyx for continuing to keep my new mare in best condition and shape possible. She is just 5 years old and recently been professionally backed just before I brought her. She came with few girthing issues and very tense when saddle was placed on. I got Alyx to come treat her soon as she had settled in to her new life with me. After 3 consecutive treatments I have seen a significant improved doing her girth, less tension and happier to stand still. She had recently started jumping and was sore and tight in her right gluteals. Alyx came to treat her for the 4th time and addressed this issue and Roo has been much more relaxed on the right rein and improving every time. She is due a MOT again soon to keep on top of any problems. As you can see Roo always falls asleep into the land of Bowen and is totally zonked out! 💤 #bowentherapy #bowentechnique #bowentherapist

First outing of 2021 to Radfords Equestrian Arena eventing. After weeks of mystery lameness, sore back, Colics, vet visits, X-rays, slow rehab finally got Jessica out to a low key Pony party!

Cheye Ruth Gibson came for a spin to. Both ponies were super, Jess had 8th place in 50cm. 12th in 60cm. Cheye had a pole in 60cm so 4 faults. I had entered Jess 50/60cm treating each round as training as it’s still work in progress she gets overwhelmed, far to excited and loses her rhythm, balance control goes out window 😅

Lovely round in 50cm, I decided to do the 60cm and as I thought, she got a little strong so we had to pull and do circle to re gain control. She loves her work but still so green at times. Cheye is 14 but never competed until last year. This was his 2nd event with me. He was his normal happy self, Growing in confidence throughout. Not looking at a single fence or flower pot! Thank you Ruth for letting me pilot your dear boy. Lovely sunny calm outing with friends at well organised Covid friendly event. Thanks to Ingrid for dog sitting and being support to us all #Caveequine #TeamCave #ilovemyjob #horseplay

Looking for client:

14.2 - 15.3hh max. Safe sensible all rounder for hacking, fun rides and odd outing. Nothing to sharp spooky or stupid. Must be able to hack alone without issues. The rider is confident and knowledgeable so would be happy to deal with something needing a bit of education. Loving forever home as it will be her last horse to enjoy pottering about on. Gelding preferred. Please message me. Healthy budget waiting.

Would just like to say since I came to Wales 5 years ago and came across Lucy Cave Browne Cave (at dog agility!!) she supported me and helped me through some very difficult times with my horse. Without her my mare would not have been able to go to Liverpool every three months for MRI scans for a year and been there when the end result not good. She got me riding again and my confidence back and was like a true friend even though we had only known each other a few months. She put herself out with her time and I will always be grateful to her for that. Well done Lucy Cave Browne Cave no one deserves your success more than you ###
Bought last year off Cave Equine 4 yr old with her owner Ava May aged 3 . Doing everything you could wish for . Thanks Lucy Cave Browne Cave
