Two cuties 💕 How did you guys spend your long weekend? I managed to cram as much pony time in as possible - it was rainy every day but really warm, so that’s a bonus!
Happy Easter from my girl topaz!! #horsielove #eastercarrot #easterbunnywho #horses
Shedding season CAN be enjoyable! #sheddingseason #horses #goodvibes #feelgood
Swipe 👉🏻 for some fun tack before/afters! What’s your favourite barn chore? I find cleaning tack to be really soothing, so offered to tackle some of my coach’s gear after a really tough week. I’d love to start offering this as a service locally, too.
4/20/19 1st time in roundpen at wyo property. Did WONDERFUL. 👊 I am SO happy with Bams!! (Sidenote...if you watch the video...my phone makes my voice sound WAY loud - turn down)
I sang to her all the way back to her pen. I am so proud of her. I could've cried I was so happy with her. 🙌 I was praising God, all in my feels. And her pen was not latched, she didnt even attempt to shove it.

Although I need to give my farrier credit where credit is due, there is a lot more going on that has contributed to Lapua’s success. .
When I got him, I noticed right away that his gait is toe>heel and not heel>toe. This can have dramatic ramifications on the bodily structures if left untreated. Yes, his feet were not good, but besides the length and overgrowth, what was happening? .
Plenty of his muscles were turned off to avoid pain. Plus, many people overlook the physical demands of bigger horses, because, well, they’re bigger! It can be really intimidating, but that doesn’t make it unnecessary to really ingrain proper balance, mobility and strength — so that’s been my top priority. .
Lapua had high toxicity from an inbalanced diet, and it took me 6 months to cure a raging abscess and a full year with lots of holistic tricks to banish his ulcers. He also had a jumpers bump and a big dip in his back that had certain people telling me to get rid of my horse and get something “more finished” (and I’m fuckin proud I proved them wrong). Also, Lapua was ridden in a saddle that didn’t fit before I got him, so his already compromised gait became worse. Needless to say, he doesn’t walk like this anymore, promise!! :’)))
A very very good girl in our lesson on Wednesday ♥️
Here’s my super cute horse being a ham :’))))
The sweetest boy lookin’ snug as a bug in his @weatherbeetana rug ♥️ A must for these last few rainy days! I love this guy with all my heart. ♥️
This mornings spa sesh..... before she decided to go ape shit and turn into a bucking bull in the little pen and prove to me that she CAN in fact buck in a one-rein circle😩 and accidentally kick my leg bone on the way out sounding like that of a home run made with a hollow bat💁🏻 I don’t know about our future but I won’t give up just yet ... tbd though cuz if this leg is broke 🙅🏻♀️ she gonna just make babies for the rest of her life 🤭 #rank #bucklife #yesiscreamed #likeabeach

These aren’t the best photos, but I finally got around to a deep spring clean of my tack lockers and my brain is so happy 😍💕 Would you guys be interested in a full tack locker tour? Maybe I’ll make my YouTube debut 😉
Watch me NEIGH NEIGH.
I am so glad I had the chance to head to @keeneland this weekend and get some much needed horse themed R&R in. I loved getting to see all of the beautiful horses, including these lead ponies that the riders allowed everyone to pet in between races! I found a new MANE squeeze in a Clydesdale named Harvey (not pictured), probably my most STABLE relationship to date. I am so excited to bring W here some day to see all the excitement of Keeneland and learn to love horses! See you again soon, @keeneland!

When you’re trying to get some cute selfies and suddenly there’s a tongue in your eye 👅 Clever Trevor is probably the best horse ever, but he sure is strange 💕 #horsesofinstagram #selfiesunday #downtime

I’m really happy with the relationship I’m in ❤️I can’t wait to see my daddy whenever I can drive. Btw vote on my story guys☺️

My life, my pony love. I don't think words can describe how much I love this guy. He is just one amazing pony who gives me his whole heart and tries to do his best.

When you think you’re a mustang stallion instead of a domesticated pony gelding 😮👀😂
Happy Sunday ✨
My first experiences with natural horsemanship were basically by happenstance. I joined a few group classes at the barn we boarded at, at the time, because it looked kinda fun. The more I learned and practiced the quiet, intentional methods, the more I fell in love! .
Stepping back and taking the time to understand the “whys” of the horse’s behavior and motivations was truly eye-opening for me. .
And now, I’m excited for our kids to grow up understanding the importance of being intentional and attentive with their equine partners; and observing how well those relationships can flourish as that connection is nurtured 🌱

The loveliest girl 🐴💕 Her summer coat on her face is coming through and we have a funny little ski mask marking for the next few weeks 😂 What fun markings or coat computation does your pony have?
I see some lovely new faces here, so I figured I’d make a formal intro! My name is Siobhán, and I’m a 24y/o horse nerd currently living in Canada. I’ve been riding for almost 16 years now, and have been horse obsessed from the very beginning? Right now I own two horses:
Genovia, aka Mia, a 15.2hh 11 y/o TB x Belgian WB mare who I’ve owned for 3.5 years,
Oliver Sudden, aka Ollie, a 14.1hh 14y/o Arab x Paint x Welsh gelding who I’ve owned for 8.5 years.
These are the two you’ll be seeing the most of, although I board at a wonderful barn with a wonderful herd (of both horses and humans) whose faces may appear here from time to time! I’m so excited to hang out and chat ponies with all of you! 🤗
No more horsing around, these two are getting hitched! You are both independently successful, but together you are unstoppable. #onedowntwotogo #engagement #diamondsareagirlsbestfriend
Full video on my Facebook 🙏🏽 I have been slaving away trying to tame and train this tyrannosaurus REXY O’ MARE , (8yr old untouched maiden mare) it’s been a long road and have had many many setbacks but one consistent anxiety attack after another we have made progress! Rain or shine or both in one day cuz Arkansas weather is weird! I am getting closer and closer to getting into wide open spaces to ride...I worked with what I had until now where I can load up and drive to the nearest arena to do some groundwork in something other than a pasture or roundpen in a pasture 🙏🏽I’m just glad she didn’t kill me yet considering her outstanding talents to buck and move under me faster than I can think. I don’t use my feet at all yet just voice and body weight , she is fast under me and extremely sensitive so it’s hard to keep up and after a while you think she’d calm down and slow down ... I’ve worked for for nearly 6 hours or more in the past and never get a tired attitude out of her ... once she catches her breath it’s always go time 😬 I won’t mind later but while training her, it’s pretty intimidating, I never know whether she is just jumping into gear or contemplating my next ER visit 😂 my posture and position are off than normal because I’m trying to keep a deep seat to stay on when she gets to quick jumping all over . It looks funny now but safety first when you’re my age and already spent enough time in the hospital 🙅🏻♀️😂. #woahdammit

That feeling when you’re already over this week and it’s only Tuesday 🙃
Ollie: “I acknowledge your request for affection and politely decline. 😐🖕🏻”
AKA, Ollie’s view on everything. 😂 This little man never fails to keep me giggling every day. Love him always. Even if he denies my smooches. 🙃♥️
Tired of your non-horsey friends or partner moaning that you “stink of horses”? The Fragrance Infusions Feeds are designed to help your horse smell divine from within. With carefully selected natural extracts, which release slowly throughout the digestive process so your horse emits a soft and subtle scent from every pore. No more stinky mucking out clothes as Fragrance Infusions Feeds leave both faeces and urine smelling floral and fresh.

What an absolutely perfect Saturday! I got to hang out with @two_dark_bays and ended up having some fun little rides with her two boys. I had some great spa days with my kids, and they’re enjoying some blanket-free sunshine with majorly warm temps! Spring is HERE! 😍♥️
Sunny days and snuggly manes 🐴♥️ I’m on my way out to the barn to have a bit of a spring cleaning session! What are your weekend pony plans?
Turning into 24 means a lot to me as this is my first birthday after I finished my study. I feel like rly stepping into the adulthood. Thank you to my friends for throwing this surprise!! Love you all! ❤️ #birthdaywishes #financialindependence
Fun fact: Eyeliner is one beauty product that I NEVER wear, however, I was super excited to try this green one from @glossierplay. This is the #colorslide
Technogel Eye Pencil in #stablerelationship.
These glide on but don't smudge. I plan on experimenting with this color this weekend. #gifted
I had great rides on both ponies yesterday evening! @two_dark_bays was kind enough to snag this cute picture after we rode together 😌 I can’t wait for more evenings like this! 🐴💕
This little powerhouse mare showed up to play in our lesson last night! Mia finally feels like she’s back in ‘work mode’ and we’ve found a routine that works for her. ♥️ What are you working on in your training with your horse(s) right now?
She who holds the light... does not have to walk in the darkness... lmao 😂😂 sounded so spiritual right there 🙏🏽 seriously though, #rexymare
has been putting up with a lot of crap lately and she handles it well❤️ I see hope for us yet! As long as she doesn’t try to kill me again 🤭🤭 #allbuck #nobite

My mum captured this photo a few summers ago, shortly after Ollie came back home from his lease and was going through some healing and ‘rehab’ of sorts. Totally candid, and I think it says all it needs to. He has my whole heart. ♥️♥️♥️

We got a tiny leap in the books!! Now if I can just get her to lift off🙏🏽 asking a lot from a naturally lazy animal 💁🏻 but food as an incentive always does the trick 😂 #rexymare #training #nodaysoff

Did some lovely jumping with Manni today! So proud of this young man. He's come along so well for us. The last jump is 1.05 m, the highest he's ever jumped in his little life :) #horse #horses #showjumping #ponh #equine #exercise #stable

The face of a very hairy swamp monster who took full advantage of a few blanket free hours 🙃 Spring has sprung! 🌱
No one understands the importance of ‘me time’ until they have a toddler😬
Don’t get me wrong I love my little dude to the moon and back but being able to go on a 30/40 minute hack in the sun and not worry is the best feeling ever 🥰 #stablerelationship #likeforlikes #horsesofinstagram #alsagerequestriancentre #like4likes #showjumping #horses #pony #roadwork #slowdownformyhorsecampaign #hacking #trecking

My first horse, my oldest love and longest relationship ❤
Katla is her name and full speed on trails is the game!
26yo.. and 20 years of fun and games.
I’m wrapping up my model horse vacation to North Carolina, but I couldn’t *not* have a proper pony vaca without getting myself on a horse! Mounted archery with Henry and his owner @morgenkilbourn was amazing. I’m definitely ready to for the Hungarian archery I’ll be learning later this year! For now, have a couple shots (pun intended) of my first go at mounted archery. More to come, I promise I shot a target!

First of all polygons, sometimes precoce and still close to its one-dimensional forefathers. Yet, most powerful in building stable structures.
Manni was such a star today! We did a Working Hunter Clinic with Amory McMahon today at Ower Equestrian Centre! He did everything so perfectly, better than I could have expected. Truly, I can rely on this horse to try anything I set my mind to, I am so proud of him.
Also I tried some new braiding methods today. Didn't stay in as well as I had hoped, but he stood and let me try whatever I wanted like a good boy.
