Well, those of you who have been following my videos (and my old channel eventerkatie84) will know that our horses are all rescues off the track. We rescue them, rehabilitate them, re-train them, and re-home them. My dear friend Georgie who not only finds these horses, but houses them on her property, asked me to put this video together, and it turned out well so I thought I may as well upload it! All the clips are in chronological order starting with Toby (Our first project) then King, and finally Roger. These horses were all bound for slaughter, and have all turned out to be lovely riding horses, and have even been out competing! We have definitely had our challenges with them but so far it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, not to mention how much we have both learned along the way! We are now both employed int he horse industry and are learning more and more every day which in turn has been a huge benefit to us and the horses. We are looking forward to keeping our ottb rescue going for as long as possible, and I'm looking forward to buying my own acreage to step the ...

Roger - 2nd and 4th rides [03:41]
Well it's official, Roger is the new love of my life, hahahaha :) This was Saturday and yesterday with the Rodgie pony, I've been a bit slack with the video making so thought I would combine the two rides! Starting to see improvements from him bit by bit, he's starting to come round in dribs and drabs, and even doing a bit of leg yielding today (will have to get that on film for you all) so really pleased with how he's going. Got him in a nice soft bit which is good, he's not heavy in my hands and pulling which is what I was worried he would do, as he had spent a bit of time dragging me around the paddock on the end of the lunge, lol, but he's lunging a lot better now. Actually not sure if he'd been lunged at all, he would have been if he was a race horse? Hmm I'm honestly not sure! Anyway hope you enjoy - while I'm here I wanna say thank you to my 245 subbers! Really appreciate all the support and lovely messages and comments... Keep em coming, it really does make my day when I have video comments! No crit or on my riding please, I'm back in work with my coach to get it all sorted, I know where my faults are and am working on them. Not trying at all to look pretty up there, just getting the boys working nicely is my top priority :) Thanks so much for watching!!! xoxoxoxo

Ex race horse Toby - Flatwork Dec [03:52]
Hey hey! This was from like, a week ago, just been slack putting it up! Just a bit of flat work with the Toby pony, main aim at the moment is suppling him up (if that is even a word? You get what I mean anyway! :P ) and getting him to go in a steadier rhythm, rather than worrying about jumping. Most of the ride from that day was done at a walk - at least the first half hour, did a bit of long and low, taught him a bit of leg yielding which he got the hang of pretty well I thought. Trying to get him out of the mind frame of just because I put my leg on, doesn't mean we go 100 miles an hour, lol :) Most of the trotting footage we caught was on the right rein, he seems to not be flexing so easily on the side, so did quite a bit of work in the trot and canter too. Anyways, I won't bore you with too much blabbering on, just thought I would clear that up before I have 100 people at me that I should ride both ways etc etc... Just because it is not on camera, does not mean we didn't do it! :) No crit on my riding, concentrating more on his way of going, rather than how I look, for the moment anyway. Thanks so much for watching and thank you to my 201 subbers! Please leave me a thumbs up and a comment, I absolutely love reading them all!!! Luv Katie xoxoxo

Toby Pony - Dec 10th [03:17]
Doing a bit of flatwork with the Toby Pony. He did alright today considering it was blowing a gale!!! Hahaha :) I think I'm starting to figure out how to ride him, not perfect, but getting there! He's getting a bit more consistent on the flat, havent done much canter work, the ground is really slippery as we've had heave rain every other day, so as soon as it firms up going to be doing much more canter work, and possibly a bit more jumping too. The little crossrail and poles was just for a little bit of fun, and gives them a little something to think about I recon :) For everyone that's been messaging me - he's rising 7, 16hh, TB, and has been off the track for just under a year I think, but the only ridden work he's done has been with me, and we've had about 5 rides so far. Please leave me a comment, thumbs up and sub! I absolutely love reading all my comments every time I log into youtube, so thanks everyone! Thanks so all my subbers, I think there are 186 of you out there at the moment. You are amazing :) Luv Katie xx Honors for this video (3) #29 - Most Discussed (Today)) - Sports - Australia #79 - Top Favorited (Today)) - Sports - Australia #33 - Top Rated (Today)) - Sports - Australia

Toby - a new beginning [03:33]
*Music is not mine!* Hey everyone! Meet Toby - the ex-racing rescue horse. He belongs to a friend of mine who saved him from being put down, as he was no longer wanted after his racing career, and apparently wasn't worth putting the time and effort into. :( She took him home, got some weight on him, and I've put my hand up to help educate him. This was my second ride on him, and the first time cantering out of the round yard. He's still very green as he's not been off the track for long, so we're still having "racehorse moments" lol but there's no nastiness, in him, but he is super sensitive, so should make a nice dressage horse or jumper... Watch this space! Please comment, rate and sub! No crit on my riding please, still getting used to this pony! Luv Katie xx
