With ANZAC day today, April 25, I wanted to dedicate a post to two true blue Australian War Horse heroes from WWI. Staggeringly, in the First World War, 136,000 horses were sent overseas for use by Australian, British and Indian forces. To me, that number of horses is absolutely inconceivable. Tragically, only ONE horse from the […]

A beautifully shot clip of show jumper Alexandra Paillot and her stunning 9-year-old Dutch mare Aphrodite. What a beautiful, gentle and intuitive rider and so caring to the individual personality of her mare. I love the noise she uses to slow her horse down without having to use her hands or body weight. And that she cross-trains […]

This quote in essence sums up a lot of my globetrotters. They work while looking forward to the next horse riding adventure and holiday.
