So we’ve been on the lookout for some good quality saddlecloths for a while now, ones that we’ll get many a globetrotting mile out of, and I’m pleased to say, I think we’ve found them. We’ve just received our package of fitted slimline pure wool saddle pads from Angus Barrett Saddlery and dare I say […]

“I’m not going to lie to you Kate, this doesn’t look good.” These words hit me like a punch to the stomach. My vet, Tom Duggan, is a realist and at the time I was thankful for his honesty but completely taken by surprise that the situation was so grim. I was standing in a […]

When I’m up in the wee hours of the morning feeding my baby girl I’ve been purging on youtube videos of high goal polo play. While Buster and Finn dream, Winnie and I escape into the world of high goal polo antics. Polo isn’t a mainstream sport and therefore doesn’t receive much air time on the television networks so […]

I’ve written before about Buster and my rural upbringing where Buster was brought up on a farming property near Nindigully and I on a cotton property near Dalby. My childhood memories are as sweet-as-honey: swimming in the tea-stained dam (peddling your legs like a duck to prevent the leaches from latching); fire and brimstone storms reaching across the sky; feeding our poddy […]

So after six months of pregnancy (click here, to read my thoughts on riding when pregnant) and seven weeks since welcoming Winnie into the world, I managed to squeeze in a couple of rides last week. Strangely, I was a little anxious about riding, post-partem, even though I’ve been there before with our Finn. I don’t know where  the […]

Wow, its nearly been eight weeks since I’ve touched down in this blog-sphere. It’s fair to say I’ve got a valid excuse for the lack of posts. We welcomed our gorgeous daughter, Winifred, known to us as Winnie, into the world on September 26.

A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014. photo caption: We’re trialling a shetland pony for Finn at the moment. This photo is of Finn on Minty (previously called Gally) who was determined to go over the ‘pink’ jumps – fortunately Minty was a willing participant. Finn was very nonchalant about the entire […]

A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2014. photo caption: This is our little globetrotter as of yesterday. Her grandmother brought the South American inspired cardigan back from a recent trip to the USA. She loves wearing her hoodie. Here she is putting lawn clippings in her toy pram. Every afternoon, […]
