Riding wisdom from 1899 is still relevant today

Please visit my google blog, thehorsemadscientist.blogspot.com for more of my posts.

One of the joys when you have time on your hands, is to surf the net without a certain destination in mind.  Often it’s a waste of time-but sometimes you stumble on gold.

So saying, I discovered Google Books, and somehow, this poem popped up. It’s lovely.
It’s titled “Hands”, by W.Phillpott Williams. It was published in “Bailey’s Magazine of Sports and Pastimes” (volume 72, 1899) in England.  The magazine itself has at least a dozen  articles,all of them having something to do with the sportsman of that era: riding to hounds, yachting, hunting farm raised and released pheasants (sorry, not much sport there, in my mind). But most of it was regarding horses.

What I like about this poem is that it is still so very applicable to today’s riding.

Herewith, my friends, is “Hands”

When the sick one is the rider, not the horse.

When the sick one is the rider, not the horse.

Please go to my google blog, The Horse Mad Scientist, to read my post about the problem child in my barn…and her not so sick horse.

I no longer allow likes on wordpress. An evil troll has been harassing me and has cost me a virus infected hard drive (which is no longer the case) and the way he gets in is by the like button.

I add both ways to connect after having suffered a bad virus attack.

The photos were lifted from the internet via Google images, and in some cases I know the site, for instance, The Mugwump Chronicles here on Word Press.

Thank you for your understanding. See you at Horse Mad!

Every day is a bad hair day

Every day is a bad hair day

I have hair from hell. Well, no. It’s not bad  hair..in fact I get a lot of compliments on its condition.

What makes it bad is that it NEVER. EVER. looks good.

Please go to my Google blog, The Horse Mad Scientist at blogspot.com


If you wonder why I am doing a link AND a copy and paste address, it’s due to a computer virus mine suffered. Now I don’t trust links. I don’t want you to go through what I did, but I DO want you to visit the other blog. Please. Because not being able to blog drove me insane. Just like my hair.
