Erika here, just letting you know that I’m still working away on all of the videos and my book – should be ready by the end of the month. I haven’t had anybody sign up yet for the 50% discount on launch day! Not entirely sure why! Maybe I’m missing something? =) I can assure you my course isn’t missing anything, and any questions you have related to the product will be answered for free!
I just wanted to let you know, that today I went for a ride on my horse Nate. I can’t even begin to describe to you the freedom that riding gives me from day to day stress. Having my horse, to ride, groom, and otherwise play with – makes everything in ‘real life’ seem not so bad! If you haven’t learned how to ride a horse yet, I encourage you to – either through this site, or through whatever method you prefer!
My course is coming together faster than I ever thought possible! Just to be EXTRA sure that I’m not missing ANYTHING, I’d like you all to email me, or post in the comments section of this blog any topics you would like to see cover in this all-inclusive manual! Your input is what will make this course all the better! And to the top 5 suggestions, I’ll be giving away a free copy of this course! So please, shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s make this book something very special!
Bill Turner, 61, bought Zebedee from a game reserve in Holland for £4,500 and learned to ride the animal in just two weeks.
Zebras are much less co-operative and more difficult to ride than horses, owing to their unpredictable nature and tendency to panic under stress.
Now Mr Turner rides Zebedee to his local, the King’s Arms, for a pint after work.
“I have broken hundreds of horses over the years, and always wanted to try my hand with a zebra, but they are very hard to get hold of,” he told the Racing Post.
“I approached Longleat a few years ago and we were going to get one of them when a mate of mine was supplying some of the meat for the lions but, unfortunately, that fell through.
“They say zebras are so hard to break because they haven’t got any brains and they do panic very easily, but I approached him as if he were a horse.
“He had never been touched, and at first was coming at me with his front feet and biting, but I purposely never hit him and tried to treat him with complete and utter kindness. At the moment it is working.”
Mr Turner, whose training career stretches back 30 years, has already found a buyer for Zebedee but plans to keep him for around a year to ensure he is absolutely safe to pass on.
This article although very amusing, is a testament to how we should treat all creatures – as well as proof that with a little kindness you can establish trust with nearly any animal – especially a horse.
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Erika Hunter – and this is my blog. I have been riding horses, and taking care of them for over 20 years now. I have seen just about everything, read just about everything, and lived just about everything with my horse and other peoples horses. A veteran, and state champion in Horse showing, I intend to bring my love of horses and riding to you!
