Stone's Throw Farm Dressage

Stone's Throw Farm Dressage


My local paper recounted your stink bug story (assuming its true)..🤣
OK, guys, looking for a *quality* young *mare* FEI prospect. Minimum 16.2, prefer taller. Needs to be started to assess ride-ability with super hind leg, free shoulder, uphill canter and no drama, no Regamate. Must pass 5* vetting and clean baseline Xrays helpful. Appropriate budget for appropriate horse. Please pm suitable candidates with videos. Thanks!
Always looking at your post. A pleasure thank you.
Pam, what a difference three days can make! As you might have imagined, attending your Dressage Boot Camp was a huge step for Susan. In our 16 years together, I have watched her as she tried her best to become a better rider. Ten years ago, when we moved to our little farm, it looked as if the stars had aligned. Susan would be able to have her horse, barn, and studio all within a few yards of each other, all at home. But first, horse soundness issues derailed the early attempts. After becoming involved with the North Fork Cardi offsprings, the soundness issues were behind her but her own body began slowing her down, restricting her movements, with her hips becoming so painful she could not sit on her horse for more than 30 minutes. I could hardly watch her dismount after a ride. She would hobble around the arena for long minutes, bent over. After two hip replacements, Susan was finally back on track. Yet Susan and both her boys had hit a wall. Teddy was capable of wonderful fluid movements. But getting him to move, to embrace that movement seemed elusive. With Atticus, Susan never felt she had control. After numerous trainers, other riders, endless searches for positive approaches without success, I think Susan had almost resigned herself to accepting whatever she might get from Teddy. Atticus’ future was less clear. We had many conversations where selling Atticus was the conclusion we were heading toward. All of this was very emotional. Susan’s attachment to both boys runs very deep. But getting back to those three days, May 24th through May 26th, all those concerns were addressed. You worked Susan hard. You read both ponies better than anyone else ever has. And the results? After getting home, Susan has ridden both boys almost every day. She has been incorporating the things you taught her into her daily routines. She has ridden Teddy successfully, riding a pony that is more UP than he has ever been, working to unlock him and herself. She has ridden Atticus on her own more confidently than I have ever seen. For the first time, I see that she is in control, that they are having meaningful conversations. That is a huge, incredible difference, Pam. I am not a rider, just a "dressage husband." But I witnessed several very impressive breakthroughs both during and after Susan, Atticus, and Theodore went through your Dressage Boot Camp. I found it to be very intensive, very personal, and a tremendous value. I just wanted to send you a little update and a HUGE THANK YOU!!! Thank you for shaking all four of us out of our comfort zones, introducing us to South Carolina, and mostly for giving Susan and her boys a huge leg-up with their dressage journey! Mel Hughes

I really like how Robert always encourages visualization of greatness in his coaching.

It’s Flashback Friday! In this video collection, U.S. Olympian and former Technical Advisor for the U.S. Dressage Team Robert Dover works with Heather Mendiburu riding What Happen (“Happy”), a 16-year-old Hanoverian Mare. Robert discusses the basic principles needed by the rider as well as the four major qualities a rider needs to own from half halt to half halt: rhythm, tempo, frame of the horse and length of stride. He also emphasizes the importance of visualization.

Love this pair. Such talent. Barely two years since their first appearance in competition, Sarah Lockman and First Apple this weekend launched a campaign for a place on the United States Olympic team short list.

A couple more from yesterday. OK, I’ll shut up now 😂

Big thanks to my other half, Paul, for getting some nice shots today ❤️ (warning: photo heavy)

Thanks for the share, Tommy Robinson! AMEN.

Top Tip with Hubertus Schmidt:
“At the beginning, the horse should have a long neck, and be really going into the bit, and that I am able to always have steady contact with a willingness of the horse to go forward. They are a little down at the beginning when I do my warm up, it doesn’t matter if it is a four-year-old or a Grand Prix horse, the first ten minutes are the same.”

Jean Bemelmans Coaches Carl Hester

This is such a pleasure to watch: Carl Hester riding in a clinic being coached by Jean Bemelmans. The work is so correct and so typical of Carl's training that this young horse (pretty sure it's a young Valegro- Uthopia??) is beautifully balanced, soft in the back and light in the hand. It doesn't get much better than this: In this video series, German-based trainer Jean Bemelmans coaches British dressage superstar Carl Hester on a young horse. Jean explains that the horse displ...

Hill walking day for strengthening at the walk. A light warm up longe in the arena to loosen Ilanka and help her work over her back, then out into the field in a big circle, with me walking alongside to keep the circle ever expanding. Both horses, even in today’s cold and wind were such good ponies ❤️

[01/27/21]   QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“It is important to understand that when you think about straightening and balancing your horse, you not only consider his balance from his ears to his tail, but also the vertical line of balance that runs from the top of your head through your spine, between your seatbones, through the center of the saddle, the horse’s back, and body and down between his legs to the ground. Often when horses and riders go through a turn, they lean into the direction of the turn, rather than staying upright.”
Susanne von Dietze

Methinks 'Frizzy' deserves a medal! “My dressage has kept me going through a very dismal period”

Such a long day for her and she remained such a trooper. Love this mare!

A little more from today’s marathon Stubben saddle fitting with Katharine Stancliff. I ❤️ this saddle, and so does Ilanka.

I have used a LOT of saddle fitters over my career and hands down, I have the most confidence with Katharine Stancliff. She spent ages out at the farm today as we tried 3 different Stubben saddles on Ilanka and settled on this, the third one. She has a fantastic eye to how it conforms and moves with the horse (most important ) and rider. She also knows in an eye blink if it’s not right. And big kudos to Ilanka who patiently put up with my mounting/dismounting, tacking/untacking three times, all the while dealing with someone target shooting across the street. Such a good girl!

Lovely, correct coaching.
