Going to the Gallops and Swimming with the Horses | A Clicker Trained Horse Adventure!

Whoop whoop! I love a horsey adventure! The gallops at Middleham are up on the moors with fantastic views all round. It was a balmy summer evening, we had the place to ourselves and we even had a wonderful impromptu swim at the end.

Since I was supposed to be in the South of France right now with my horses and the whole trip was cancelled due to Covid-19, I’ve been feeling a little short-changed on horse adventures this year. So, it was great to meet up with my friend Sophie and her horse, Elfine, for this trip. 😍

There are a few training snippets in here, but it’s mostly just a fun one so come along for the ride and enjoy it with us 😁🐎

    Hi, Love the video , my kind of riding . What treats do you give freckles as I see he has a bit in his mouth ?

      Hi, no, Freckles and Elfine are both bitless in this video πŸ™‚

      However, I often ride India in a bit (without a noseband, which she prefers) and she gets just the same treats and is easily able to chew them, whether that’s nuts, mix or grass πŸ™‚

      I love it! This one is a Citroen, but I had a Vauxhall before this. You need to get the extra long wheel base and extra high roof if you have horses rather then ponies. I got this one converted by horsebox build company with the top priority being payload so I can travel them both so it’s very lightweight materials and a minimal design. There are quite a few on the market both new and second hand in the UK now – though since you called it a ‘float’ I guess you’re not in the UK… Good luck finding one or getting a van converted! πŸ™‚

  2. Hello ladies,
    I loved the swimming afternoon with the 2 horses,
    Fantastic!
    I used to take a horse swimming as a kid, we both loved it too.
    Thank-you and I hope all is well around you.

      Hi Cindy, yes it’s the best isn’t it? My aim in life is to feel like that pony mad kid as much as possible – it certainly is a lot of fun for me and the horses love to play, too. Never grow up! Glad you liked the video and thanks for your comment πŸ™‚
