The Horse World

Horsing Around the World: Berlin, Germany

April 2016

There’s nothing like the practical experience of travelling, visiting and talking with horsemen and women in different countries to learn how they work with horses and their land.  This month, Mariette van den Berg visits the new facilities of the Bonhomme stud near Berlin, Germany. During 2014, I visited some very interesting Warmblood studs (new and old) around Berlin, Germany. My first visit was to a private and brand new horse stud called Gestut Bonhomme, which cost in excess of $16 million Euros and took around six or seven years to build! 

A Place to Call Home

March 2016

A secluded corner of the Lockyer Valley has, for the second time around, become home to European settlers chasing their dream; to create a prosperous, healthy lifestyle integrating family with their love of horses, cattle and rural country living. “We want to have space and a quieter life, but we also want to do the things we enjoy. That’s why I was drawn to this location”, says Nick.

Standardbred Stories: November 2015

January 2016

We got Emmy (Emmy Lou; Unprejudiced) as a rising three-year-old from a local trainer. She was too slow for the race track. She was initially purchased for my Mum to trail ride as she was very quiet. However, we quickly discovered that she was talented and I took her on soon after my own horse went out for a spell. We spent a lot of time having lessons, building strength, and working on our canter. She just tries and tries no matter what you ask her to do. We took it slowly and enjoyed the journey. She’s such a beautiful horse to ride - so comfortable and so quiet.

Life Beings Where Roads End

August 2015

Time to start living my life…” That was the subject heading of the email I sent to Dany Hancock of Rides On The Wild Side, an equine adventure travel specialist. I had just finished a year of full-time work after a long degree. I decided I wanted to explore the world a little differently… On horseback. Dany’s swift reply gave me goose bumps: “How would you like to join me on a ride with Big Game in South Africa?”

A Peaceful Purpose

May 2015

Yes, I’m a tired and cranky warrior,” he says. “But I spend time with horses whose genes are of warriors, so there’s a bond. There’s always a special bond between a soldier and his horse.” Geoff Dunning, a former soldier of the Australian Army, quietly reflects in the morning sun as the gentle grey mare Allegra grazes close by.
