It is so much fun to be involved in the re-education process of the incredible racehorse Bentley Biscuit. Since leaving the racetrack his owners George and Jill Mooratoff have wanted to provide him with a great life after racing.

Over the past few months I have had a lot of fun interacting with some wild brumbies that were adopted by some animal lovers in country New South Wales. Here is an overview of some of the techniques I’ve been using to help them learn to trust and interact with people.

Asha and Phoenix were progressing nicely. At this stage we could cause them to come into us and they allowed me to rub them all over, remaining quite relaxed in my presence. So it was now time to introduce a halter.
A lot of people say to me, “I have just got my horse back from the breaker and am having a few problems with it and now am tentative to ride my horse.” This can be quite disappointing as you have just spent good money on having your horse broken in and have been looking forward to enjoying riding them for a while now. It seems to be a common scenario and can end up quite dangerous.
The thoroughbred racing industry is a huge pool of lovely, talented horses. Not all of them can win races, however they all have potential for great careers after racing. A misconception that some people have is that ex-racehorses are flighty, reactive and dangerous horses. I don’t believe this to be true and if worked with effectively they can become top eventers, dressage horses or just lovely everyday riding horses for people looking to go on trail rides or improve their riding skills.

“I bought this horse and when I went to see him he was really quiet but when we got him home he was crazy”. Heard this before? It can be an issue faced by many when buying a horse and it can be quite a confusing situation.
I have been around the world with one of my great mentors, Monty Roberts, and no matter where you go, how warm or cold it is, what language is spoken or even what the favorite cuisine is, float loading is a BIG issue!
