What I Hope   For many of us, the world looks significantly different than it did at the beginning of the year. Many stables shut their doors to anyone other than those directly involved in their horses’ care. Others have

Un-toad yourself.

Un-toad yourself.

Want some excellent but hateful advice?

If you don't, don't read this---

So a person comes to the barn from work. She enters the tack room, and sinks, with a comfortable sigh, into a chair. She is tired from work, from stress, from driving----

She is tired from being tired.

What she SHOULD do is come into the barn, and start doing some reasonably hard physical task. Why? Because manual work, hate it though you may, banishes the weariness that comes from stress.

This sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn't. The way to kick yourself into gear is to exercise MORE just when you feel like it the LEAST.

If you get into the habit of slowing down, rather than speeding up, when you feel tired, you are totally #@%^ed in terms of becoming an athlete. Your body will gradually become the consistency of pablum. You will have the energy of a slug. Weakness leads inexorably to greater weakness.

At some point, you may feel so deep into that self dug hole that getting free of it seems hopeless.

So be brave. Pick up a bale. Or a water bucket. Vigorously groom your horse. Be physical.. Get tougher. DO NOT BECOME A TOAD.

If you are already a toad, un-toad yourself. This will start by doing almost anything except damn old sitting and resting, the two things that are killing you as an athlete.

Thank you and I hope you're able to join me!

I finally did it! I put together an instructional video! Here’s how to set up a gymnastics/grid for your horse. Let me know what you think!

Stay tuned, I’m going to add more video of the final set-up, as well as how some of the horses go through it.

*Pardon the clicks in the sound, we’re working on improving it.
