Time and time again I say to all my clients about the benefits of long reining!! Yes it takes time and patience but long run you will end up with better relationship with your horse and a more correct way of going!! X

Honestly, I genuinely feel that long reining should be a part of every horses training regime.

It has so many benefits. To list just a few:

🐎 Handler position whilst working from the ground allows you to observe your horses straightness. Are they loading all four limbs equally? Do they favour one side? Are they flexing the hocks equally? Do the Tuber Coxae (false hips) follow the same rotation as each other? Can they maintain a consistent frame through left and right turns?
🐎 It allows you to check that the saddle stays straight throughout
🐎 It teaches the horse to accept a contact
🐎 It’s key in the horses learning process: they can’t possibly learn to stay round and soft well if they’re trying to build strength with weight on board
🐎 If they can’t do it without a rider, they can’t do it with a rider - this, for me, is so important. The horse is designed to carry weight from underneath, like a sling. Not from on top… In order for them to carry a rider with confidence and relaxation whilst reducing risk of musculoskeletal injury they need to be correctly strengthened - abdominal engagement, multifidus strength, epaxial development, overall postural correctness: these all help protect musculoskeletal health of the ridden horse.

Approaching this from the perspective of backing and rehabilitation, there is no shortcut when it comes to strengthening the horse.

It comes down to good old Dr. Time

It’s not uncommon that ridden work is suggested for posturally weak horses. As a collective, we need to make this practice an abnormality.

It’s damaging our horses

Until the horse can remain consistent and balance through turns and translations without a rider, we shouldn’t be adding one. There’s nothing that can’t be done long reining, therefore the rider should not be put on board until the horse, at the very least, is strong enough to carry his own weight first

For the sake of the horse, learn this vital skill

I am looking at starting to run some rider focused pilates classes at mine... I will keep theses in small groups 3-4 so I can focus on all of you... they will be run inside my barn so keeping very covid safe... cost £10 a class... thinking of doing one class mid morning and one in the evening... just trying to see what interest there is?? Hoping to start beginning of August.

On behalf of my client for your consideration

Bob
11.2 stunning pony.
Age 8
Bob is a really quality little pony, jumps the moon, lovely on the flat and will excel in any sphere. Been professionally schooled and taken time with but now needs to move on to a new home. Not a complete novice ride so ideal second pony. Bombproof in traffic, good to box, shoe, clip. Bob does have a slight lump on side of face due to tooth impaction but has been checked by vet and not in pain and does not cause any problems. Hence reduced bargain price. £2000 ono.

Dear Wonderful Clients,

I'm planning some really great things for my business in 2021 and I'm really excited to share with you!

I'm passionate about helping horses, and I'm also passionate about creating a thriving business that helps me keep helping the horses we love for years to come.

I'm continually learning and updating my skills as a practitioner, but I'm also committed to continually upgrading my business as well. This is why I'm really excited to be implementing a new business tool in 2021 that you are really going to love as well!

EquiBody App is a digital platform where I can securely keep all your details in one place, create my appointment schedule - and the most amazing of all - create and share with you digital reports of all our appointments! You'll be able to see exactly what I've found, the techniques I've used and what I recommend to help your horses thrive. We'll also be able to easily see changes over time. Another great feature is you will have the ability to share these reports with any other care providers for you horses. We'll all be able to collaborate for a better care plan, which is the best thing possible for your beloved furkids!

Look out for an email coming your way soon inviting you to create a login to EquiBody App which will be your new client portal.

If you are able, it would be really awesome if you could add all your horses in to your portal so they are ready for me to get cracking with keeping them well and happy.

Thank you so much for being by my side through 2020, we got through a very tough year together. I'm really looking forward to helping you all in 2021.

Warmest Wishes,
Gem

Yesterday saw me treat the lovely ruby. X ruby is only 3 and is still growing do it's very important to make sure she starts using her body correctly now and dosent start compensatory issues at this young age. It's also good to get her used to a physio now. This is her during her session. I think she was rather enjoying it. Xx bless her. Xx

Year one is great. New plot of ground and all the fencing to do. (don't skimp on fence posts creasote are best) Water runs in. TOOLS SECURED as the pikeys know this plot is under new ownership and will strike at some point. Year two, reality steps in and you will need to earn £'s. I have great faith in your horse skills Gem and wish you luck there but remember the farming community have no money and it's not like Wycombe where money drips on you like water. I'm wishing you the very best in your venture and wish you and your husband well!
