The beginning of this week has been great! Everything is going well, Evelyn is having a good handle on the yard and I am enjoying the last day of teaching before Heather comes back tomorrow. Will be nice to have her back tho!
Other stuff that has happened this week is that I bought a grooming bag because it had Danzas favourite brush in it!
Another thing that arrived are these;
Danza is working well and we are pushing our boundaries! It feels so nice to be working together with her and not against her which it sometimes has felt like up til now. But that is all part of the journey!
I will let that picture speak for itself and end this blog here haha! Tomorrow is a vlog day!
The last week just disappeared – what happened? Went so quickly!
Elisabeth is back home in Sweden and Evelyn has arrived and will stay til Friday morning.
Here are some more of the pictures from the photoshoot;
It is really nice to have some lovely moment’s captured like this, you can always keep them with you, forever❤
This week kicks off with some proper hot day’s and then it is ment to cool down a little, and even ment to rain – SO EXCITED!
Heather is still away, she will be back Wednesday night so I have a few more day’s of teaching, my real passion. I’m really enjoying Heathers holiday( haha ). I love riding aswel, but there is just something so special to be able to take part in and help other people on their journeys – love that!
And on that note! I want to wish you all a good start to a new week.
The sun keeps shining, we keep smiling and we keep sweating! 😂 lovely picture, I know! But what can we do? Apparently it is ment to be a few cooler days now and then heat up again – we really need RAIN! Never thought I would ask for rain, but here we go.
Heather is off on holiday tomorrow and we have Elisabeth here as first lady out of our three summer helpers! She came on Friday and will be staying til Thursday, the next one up will arrive some time Friday.
Today has been a vlog day and it’s been so much fun. If you want to subscribe to my YouTube channel you can click here. Today’s vlog will be out tomorrow. It is filled up with loads of fun!
I also took quite a few pictures today of some of the lessons which I will share with you once I’ve edited them.

Oh My GOD!!
Something is going on and it’s something really good! It is such a long time ago I felt happy like this – and gosh it’s a nice feeling! I almost don’t believe it – I am going to embrace it and hold on to it for as long as I can.
It’s something which is really hard for me! When I’m out teaching I’m comfortable, confident and trust myself – but take that environment away from me and I want to just go and hide!
Writing it here, makes it even more real! And that’s fine!
We all deserve to be happy and enjoy what we do and who we are and also the feelings we are experiencing, they’re all welcomed, even if they’re positive! ( I’m convinced you all think I’m nuts at this point! But honest to God – positivity is something I don’t often let in – it is a working progress! )
So anyway! My horse has been on the Calming Powder for about 5 days now and then I give her a cookie before riding and it’s like someone has gone and swapped my horse out for a new one! It is absolutely amazing the difference in her. I am over the moon!
Later today my vlog will hopefully be out – so excited can’t wait to share it with you!
I made a vlog about this earlier in the week which a promised to share with you.

This is a learning curve, how to get things across, and would’ve loved a better result, but, that’s what I managed this time.
If you’d rather read about it, I will try, in a simple matter to explain my thoughts and process about it in this blog post.
I started by making a profile called Myself where I divided it in to
Goal – Ambition – Dream
I then went on to
Where I had a plus and a minus side.
Lastly from these two pages I created
My Horse which then got divided into these columns.
High prioritised – will not consider – desired – considered – bonus.
Every single person will come out with different wishes, qualities, budgets and all of this together will give us a very different horse – which is what I really love about being able to help people finding their new equine partner, it is such an exciting journey!
My 10 top tips
- Be honest about your abilities, desires and budget.
- Don’t rush to find your new equine partner.
- Take someone who’s judgment you trust with you.
- Take your priority list with you and don’t deviate from it, there is a reason you’ve put things there in the first place.
- Have a good trainer and backup team.
- Make a list of all the questions you need answered before you go to try the horse, it is easily done to forget things in the heat of the moment.
- Try it several times and in different environments.
- Consider types of horses you may not have thought of, as long as it isn’t conflicting to your desired/undesired qualities in your future horse.
- Research the market, see what’s out there and what the prices are like at the time.
- If it doesn’t feel right – don’t buy it!
This week has been filled up with loads of stuff!
Unfortunately the horse we were ment to look at on Thursday was sold but we are not giving up. Patience is key! Never rush the process of finding a new horse.
Wednesday I had a photoshoot with Danza…. she was wild 😂 but behaved very well under saddle. Hoping the pictures will come through this weekend.
I’ve ridden in my bew boots, LOVE them 😍 as you might have noticed if you follow me on Instagram.
If you don’t, here are some pictures!
I snapped this photo just outside our back door-how beautiful is this? Love our sunsets!
I have also bought this:
Excited to try them out!
Have a nice weekend.
I hope you’ve had a great weekend! 😊
My back is still playing up but is getting better so today I will try to get back on Danza – that could be….exciting!
I am going to talk about buying horses, most likely in a vlog, but I will link it over so you guy’s can have a look. It’s such a jungle – but I love it. Buying and selling horses. Why? Well you’ll just have to wait for the actual vlog/blog.
Because I’m helping some people looking for horses it has inspired me to do it 😊
Anyway, headtitle, busy week!
I am having a photoshoot on Wednesday – ment to be 26 degrees, wowsers! I’m so excited about it. Click here to get to her Facebook page.
My latest Instagram is here, check out one of the models! Feel free to follow also.
On Thursday I’m going with a client to look at a horse.
Saturday we might be going out for dinner to celebrate a friends birthday! Fun!
Today lovely Alison is going to sort out my eyebrows, they are wild!
