My handy knicks and scratches DIY Essential oil mixture, which I used regularly for fast results in healing of minor surface wounds, eg. playtime bite marks, knicks and scratches from being out, hair loss from rubbing on surfaces, the list goes on.
Here is what to do:
🌸 Purchase Fissan baby paste, which is used as the base cream for its thickness and its use on babies for relief of itchiness. (Can be bought in a tub of 250g which would be best, for making the mixture in the tub) 🌸 Next for the essential oils, put about 2-3 drops of Tea Tree Oil for fungal infection, Eucalyptus Oil to reduce inflammation, swelling and soreness. Now for Bergamotessens to assist with hair growth, which can also be used to calm the anxious horse.
🌸 The last essential oil to use is Citronella, which is used sparingly with about 1-2 drops, as it can burn the sensitive horse, but is perfect for keeping flies off the wound, and aid as a further anti-bacterial oil.
🥕NB: These measurements are depending on the amount of Fissan Paste used, and are based on mixing in the tub of Fissan Paste 250g

Swedish oxer 🇸🇪:
This jump can help a horse for many reasons. It’s most commonly one of the neglected fences when training and horses sometimes panic when at competitions however it has many benefits. It can help a horse remain central over the fence and encourage the correct position of both the horse and the rider. This jump should first be ridden at a small height then increased accordingly, ensure that the horse is not rushing and you have got a balanced controlled canter before the fence with correct striding. Over the fence adopt a normal jumping position and when landing ensure straightness in the get away. This can be scary for some horses to start with so be careful and remember for many competitions especially in the UK 🇬🇧 this fence isn’t allowed in the warm up arena. #jumping#equinetuition#exercise#schooling#showjumping#equine#horse#jump#pole#swedishoxer
Straightness and bending:
Follow the arrows in any pace by ensure you alter the distances suitably (see previous post for distances).As the horse gets used to the exercise move the v shape in so that the poles are together. This can help horses to know where they place their feet as well as the hard black curve arrow can help with suppleness and of course straightness. This is useful in both dressage and jumping. It can help improve the basic ways of horses going. When riding this ensure straightness in your seat as well as using the correct aids to encourage bending and maintaining a consistent contact throughout to support the horse. #exercise#equinetuition#equine#horse#showjumping#dressage#polework#schooling#poles#straightness#bending
MEMPHIS - we don’t usually work on a Standardbreds canter. They have their walk and trot established but the canter we usually leaves Memphis naturally fell into one today so I was more than happy to go with it! And then I rode it and rode it and rode it. 🌿🌿🌿
Here we have an entire herd with broodmares, geldings and colts standing happily next to each other during feeding time.⠀
Our outside livery feeding routine is just as important as our stabled horses. We don't believe in just "throwing buckets in the field" which gives the herd the "fight for my feed" mindset and you will find kicking squealing and fighting over feeding time as well as over feed becomes a part of the horses routine. At Howberry our horses are all gently taught to tie up on their own feeding post and they stand patiently for their feed. Each horse is as thoroughly groomed as the stabled horses and afterward they stand patiently waiting to be taken back to their paddock. This is all part of developing healthy, happy and most importantly PATIENT horses 🐴⠀
A year and a half ago Foxy had her legs caught in wire. She lacerated them through trying to escape. Thankfully she didn't break a leg. This was Feb 2017. Now her legs are covered in black scars but I still couldn't love her more. I hate to think that when some people find a scar on their horse, they want to sell their fury Friend simply because they won't look perfect anymore for a show. Sometimes having a horse in your life means going through hard times, it's not all about the perfect sunny days and looking spotless and winning shows. Sometimes things happen to your friend. Sometimes you have to sacrifice the obsession to ride, and just be there for the horse, simply because they are an animal that you love, rather then a horse who always needs training. You can't give up too easily. Be there for them until their last days. Don't discard them when they are too old to compete on or ride. They are a lifelong responsibility, not just while it's convenient to get a ride. #equestrian#horses#horse#horsesofinstagram#instahorses#equine#caballo#greyhorse#maresofinstagram#friendship
