Why I abandoned my Social Media Accounts.

I did something a little bit extraordinary last week, which would either liberate you or put you into turmoil; I abandoned the social media accounts for Heels To Horses. Why did I start the social media accounts? Pretty much since the day I launched the Heels To Horses blog site in May 2016, I have

Olly Goes Back To School

Last week whilst we were away in Cyprus for a friend’s wedding, our friend’s Sue Brennan and Jade Clark from Brennan Equestrian had Olly on a schooling livery. Being as I’d started re-schooling Olly before we went away I didn’t then want to leave Olly in a field for 12 days doing nothing as we

Equine Worming – Do you have a plan?

Unless you are a new horse owner (or loaner), like me, you should be well versed in the requirements of equine worming.

Olly lying down

Week 9 of Olly’s Update

On Tuesday Olly had his feet done. Our Farrier, Ryan Darbyshire, is great. He understands Olly’s seperation issues and because Olly was only having a trim Ryan came into the horses field and he trimmed him there and then. When we arrived they were all lying down on the brow of the hill in the sunshine.

What a day today has been!

I had planned today to be such a positive forward moving type of day with lots of leatherwork to do and social media and blog writing to schedule but boy did it turn out to be way different……Firstly, I had the dentist this morning, it wasn’t just a check up this time neither it was to have some x-rays, a filling and a clean but after numerous terrifying childhood experiences at the dentist I hate having ‘work done’ to my teeth……Then to top the day off I had to try and get one of our cars into a garage urgently which was proving to be more difficult than originally thought.
