The New Forest ponies most endearing quality is
their inbred, gentle nature. Their calm
temperament naturally recommends them as an
excellent choice and an ideal mount for both
children and adults. They have long been raced
locally and are surprisingly fast, especially over
rough terrain. They are suited to many competitive
activities from Pony Club to polo, driving to
dressage, they are naturals at jumping and
gymkhana and are successfully trained to carry
handicapped riders.
All in all, the modern New Forest Pony is an
exceptional all-rounder with an endearing
character, that has developed as a result of
both its unique environment and strong
association with the people who have been
responsible for the development of the breed.
Intelligence, strength, calm temperament and
versatility.
The New Forest Pony… a true all-rounder…
The New Forest Pony is a recognized British Isles breed but has an unusual background
for a native pony breed. The earliest record of horses in the New Forest dates back to 1016
when rights of common pasture were granted to the people living in what was a royal
hunting ground. Since then, either as specific attempts to improve the breed or just as part
of the normal life and trade in the New Forest, many outside breeds were introduced.
Notable blood lines were Welsh, Thoroughbred, Arab and Hackney. Later, another
concerted effort was made to improve the New Forest blood and other British Isles pony
blood-lines were introduced to achieve this, including Fell Ponies, Dales, Highlands,
Dartmoor and Exmoor.

History of the Welsh Pony:
The
origin of the Welsh Mountain
Pony is not clear. It is believed
that during Roman times horses
of eastern origin were crossed
with native Welsh stock. During
the 18th century Thoroughbred,
Arabian and Barb blood was
introduced. The eastern
influence can be seen in the
beautiful head, the dished
profile and the big eyes and
nostrils. The Welsh Mountain
Pony was used for shepherding
and hunting. It has lived in the
harsh rugged landscape of Wales
for may centuries and forms the
base of all Welsh Ponies. 
The
Welsh Mountain Pony,
considered by may to be the
most beautiful pony, is able to
thrive in harsh weather
conditions and on meagre
rations. It has been used to
improve the New Forest and the
British Riding Pony. The breed is
popular in many countries and
has been exported to the United
States, Europe, Africa, Australia
and New Zealand.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD THIS HORSE?
I got Bon-Bon when I was 6 & learnt to ride on her after starting on my mother's stock horse gelding, I even took Bonnie to
campdraft training even though she was smaller then most of the steers we were tracking. Then I progressed to Angel when I
was 9 after riding another QH briefly. I started riding Matchmaker in May 2009 & since then I have done quite a few
campdrafts. My first run was at Boonah last year. I also do cattle & horsemanship clinics. Cutting has helped me with cattle
work & saddle time & the club is really great.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RIDING?
I started riding when I was about 5 & when I got Bonnie for Xmas the next year I learnt in the round yard at home before
starting pony club at The Oaks in Sydney. I have learnt a lot since I began riding Match as she is such a well trained cow horse
that she teaches me as well as looking after me.

lessons from Luke Klan & Mick & Cheryl Storey who run fantastic cattle work clinics. I am going to start lessons soon with a
local draft/cutting trainer called David Hogg. I also did a couple of clinics with chip Johnston in NZ. I am looking forward to the
SEQ Youth ASH camp soon as David Wilson is the head coach & we get to do all sorts of different things from polocrosse to
dentistry.

In this issue Linda Parelli offers advice on how to develop a bond with your
horse.
I have just bought a new horse and want to make sure I develop a good bond
and relationship with him – can Parelli techniques help? Mary James.
.
This is a wonderful thought - your horse will really appreciate it! Horses don’t care how
much you know until they know how much you care, but befriending horses is often
unsuccessful because we are two completely different species... horses are prey animals
and people are predators. A human is not something a horse would go out of his way to be
friends with and yet the relationship we’ve shared them for thousands of years is quite
extraordinary, if not always fun for the horse. When you are able to overcome the prey-
predator barrier your horse’s confidence will soar, making him more responsive and safer
to be around. Think of it this way... horses don’t bite or kick people they like and trust!
.
The Prey-Predator Barrier
.
When horses get scared, they’re not afraid you’re going to hurt them, they’re afraid you are
going to kill them. It doesn’t seem logical to us, but prey animals are ‘programmed’ that
way. They’ve survived for millions of years by reacting faster than, out-thinking,
outsmarting and out-running predators. So when it comes to the horse-human relationship,
even if you are a vegetarian, you are still a predator species and your horse knows it.
.
The reason we make such a big deal about this is because many people tend to get mad or
frustrated when their horse misbehaves, but often they have no idea what is driving that
behavior. For many horses it is mortal fear that is making them bolt, rear, bite, kick, prance,
head-shake, buck, not stand still, spook, shy, etc., and when the human gets annoyed it
throws fuel on the fire. The horse is already scared, they have a predator on their back and
now that predator is mad... or scared. Either way, the feeling that is transmitted to the
horse scares the life out of him.
.
One of the first things Parelli students learn is to not blame their horse for how he’s
behaving and to take control of their own emotions. You have to get calm and objective.
Then you need to know what to do to convince your horse that even though you look and
smell like a predator, you would never act like one.

By Linda Parelli
Here are some ways you can prove this:
Never punish your horse because prey animal s do not understand punishment. They live in the moment and they react to
their feelings about a situation and then behave as their instincts tell them to. Here’s what to do: say to yourself “How
interesting!” and then think about what may be causing him to act this way. More on this in the next section.
Never ti e his head down with draw reins or martingales. There is a reason that head comes up and you need to find out
what it is. Horses don’t resist for no good reason.
Never strap his mouth shut. As above.
Never yank on the reins or hold them so ti ght that he feels no way out. Horses are naturally very claustrophobic so they
fight to get free. There is a natural way to collect horses on shorter reins and there are far better ways to control a horse
than pulling back on the reins.
Never tri ck him by hiding your halter behind your back or using treats to lure him into places he doesn’t want to go. Your
relationship has to be based on trust.
Patience, pati ence, patience. When your horse doesn’t do what you want right away, cal mly and sensitively repeat it and
repeat it and repeat it until your horse is calm... or change your strategy in case you weren’t being very clear. Pat Parelli
says it best when he quips “You’re doing great... I’ve never seen it take longer than two days!” If you adopt the two day
attitude you’ll slow down, be less intense and your horse will feel a lot better!
Look first at yourself. A good teacher blames himself before he blames his student and knows that it’s devastating to the
learning process for his student to feel fear. Not many people are naturally patient, but horses can teach you this. By
breaking things down into si mple steps and giving your horse time to think and pause for a moment after he does
something right. This develops confidence like you can’t believe and some horses need a lot more waiting ti me than others
before they can relax. You are your horse’s teacher and many horses come to school confused, worried, someti mes
terrified.
Learn the Parelli Seven Games. By studying horses Pat Parelli observed seven distinct games they play with each other to
establish friendship and dominance. He adapted them so humans could use them to establish successful relationships wi th
horses, star ting on the ground and moving on from there. These Seven Games are so powerful they go straight to the
psyche of the horse quickly breaking down the fear barrier... provided an attitude of love and understanding is used. If not,
they’ll go through the motions but hold on to their primitive fear.
When a horse doesn’t want to be with people or he’s always tense, you need to spend a lot of
undemanding time with hi m, just hanging out with hi m like his horse buddies do. Horses that are acting out of self defense
feel that everything is pressure... catching, leading, saddling, bridling, lunging, riding. In order to get him to let down and
relax around you, you need to spend a lot of undemanding ti me with him and gradually start asking him to do things, in
fact, your horse will probably start wanting to play with you. That’s when you’ll know he’s ready. And if you have a more
confident horse who is already looking for action, start playing with hi m right away and think about ways you can keep it
fun.

TEAMS- 10 Goal
4 Goal Final
One of the most exciting, on the edge of your

where the riders played and worked as a team,
Robby Ballard played an incredible game, his
ability to read the game, his athletic and
acrobatic skill, had us all wanting more.
7 goals to 4 with Scanlan taking the 4 goal title
10 Goal Final

Subsidiary Final
The pinnacle of finals, this final had it all. Custodian
took the early lead with Wastecorp just hanging in,
clawing back chukka by chukka. From the onset, no
one would of thought that Wastecorp were going to
come back and challenge Custodian as they did…
with the final horn tolling the score was locked 9 all.
The game then went into extra time, it was do or die
for all. A penalty shot was awarded to Custodian,
Craig Wilson on one of his favourite greys, lined up
and hammered the ball home for a super win to the
Custodian Team… Final Score 10-9
Ashling Polo located at 100 Bromelton House Road Beaudsert's annual 4 and 10 Goal event held
in early spring is one of the "must attend" polo events on the QLD calendar. Ashling is owned and
run by Glen and Juliette Wright and each year they openly invite teams from all over Australia to
enter a team in this very popular polo event.
What an Atmosphere! One of the fastest, roughest and most dangerous
games played today. The stamina and athletic ability of the players and their
horses is second to none. “Mate against Mate” as they play for the Title.

September this year Logan Village Riding Club hosted their first Masters Equestrian Games. President,
Sarah Craddock was overwhelmed with the response and feedback from competitors and spectators.
So much so that the event will be hosted next year in May (date to be confirmed). In addition to the
Dressage, Showjumping and Sporting Events, the club endeavors to add Hacking and Cross Country to
the program.
Competitors aged from 35 years to over 70 years and travelled down from Toowoomba, Caboolture and

From a Rider‟s perspective, what an absolutely fantastic weekend! The general atmosphere was
charged with camaraderie with a slight hint of competitiveness of course! Catching up with „old‟ faces,
reminiscing and just plain enjoying yourself.
For some competitors, it was their first time “stepping out” in competition for quite some time, but the fact
that we were in our own “age element” made it “the more the merrier”.
Saturday evening was the Dressage Award Presentations and Dinner. The night was well attended and
a huge success. The overall Team challenge for the weekend was awarded to “Jimboomba Cougars”
who competed in all three disciplines in the true spirit of the Masters!!

Although nobody expects a child to write an essay before having mastered the alphabet, it is amazing how
many riders expect their young horses to jump a course of jumps in competition when they cannot safely
negotiate a single fence without showinga lackof basiceducationforjumping.
To correctly educate a young horse in the fundamentals of jumping is not difficult nor does it require a high
degree of skill, it relies onfollowinga progressive andrational method.
At River Downs, our youngsters are broken in as late 2 year olds. They are worked and educated on the flat
(with frequent spells) for the next 12 months and are ready to commence jump training at the end of their 3
yearoldyear. We expect tohave themout at small competitionsas 4 yearolds.
The method we use is based onthat of Bert de Nemethy and WilliamSteinkraus. Over the years and with the
experience of starting many horses we have made some variations and now believe this is the best system to
produce aneducatedandsafe jumpinghorse.
We assume, of course, that your young horse is educated to be obedient on the flat – he stops, goes and can
turn at all paces. We would also like the horse to be able to lengthen and shorten his stride at the trot and
canter and have the beginnings of self carriage. However education on the flat can proceed alongside jump
training so as long as the young horse has mastered these foundations we are ready to start introducing himto
jumping.
We beginby reducing a jump to its simplest form, a pole on the ground. The horse is walked over this pole,
keeping himstraight and on the aids. Circle over this pole several times at the walk until the horse negotiates
it quietly and cleanly and then repeat the exercise on the other rein. We then repeat the exercise at a steady
rising trot. At this point some horses will attempt to jump the pole; discourage this by a little pressure onthe
bit onthe approach and returning to walking over the pole fromtime to time. As soonas the horse negotiates
the pole perfectly when approaching at a right angle, begin walking and then trotting over at a slight angle
both to the left and the right. Since we will expect the horse to jump fences at anangle and turn immediately
afterthe fence laterinits competitive career, it is useful tointroduce this fromthe beginning.
Once the horse is confidently performing these exercises (not rushing, slowing downor raising his head) add a
second pole 4 to 4 and a half feet (1.2 to 1.35m) away and parallel to the first. If satisfied with the horse’s
progress adda thirdpole andfinally a fourthandfifth(figure 1).
Whenthe horse does this exercise perfectly, take the fourth pole and use it to make a small cross with the fifth
pole (figure 2).
The distance from the third pole to the cross will be about 9 feet (2.7m). Continue to trot this exercise. The
cross can be increased to a vertical and finally an oxer. The poles assist the horse to find a perfect take off
point each time and steady his approach to the jump. This exercise canbe used throughout the horse’s career
and is excellent for the rider as well. At all times the horse must remain calmand attentive to the rider’s aids.
If at any stage youfeel the horse becomingconfusedoroverwhelmedgobacktothe previous step.
These exercises should never be practiced for too long ina single session. Aimfor a steady progression over a
numberof weeks andaccept not all horses learnat the same rate.
Starting the young horse - By Don & Karen Sullivan
Now we have introduced our young horse to the idea of jumping, our next exercise is aimed at developing his
technique. We start with a pole on the ground, 9 to 10 feet (2.7 to 3m) to a small cross then9 to 10 feet to
anotherpole (figure 3).
As for the previous exercise, approach introt. The first pole assists the horse to find his take off point and the
second pole discourages over jumping and develops his bascule. Ensure you approach off both reins. Intime
the cross is increasedtoa vertical thenanoxer.
Our next exercise introduces the horse to cantering over a single fence. Build a small cross pole adjacent to and
approximately 20 – 25mawayfromthe jumpinthe previous exercise (figure 4).
Approach the exercise in trot but upon negotiating the last pole proceed in canter (ensuring you have the
correct lead). Maintaina calm, controlled stride to the cross pole. It is important that, beyond maintaining a
steady rhythm, you make no attempt to regulate the horse’s take off point; we encourage him to develop his
own eye. The reason we build our first canter fence following a turn is to allow the rider to vary the length of
the approach (note the differing approaches A, Band C infigure 4). Start with the fairly long approach A to
allowplenty of time to establish the canter. Vary the length of the approach as you proceed with the exercise.
Keep an even rein contact whilst supporting the horse gently with the legs. If the horse hesitates apply more
calf pressure but maintain exactly the same rein contact and on no account drop the horse by putting a lot of
slack in the rein. Repeat the exercise on the other rein. If the horse begins to rush and anticipate (ensure the
rideris not causingthis), simply circle before the jump(figure 5) until calmness is regained.
As soonas the horse is confident over the cross pole, substitute a small vertical thenprogress to a small oxer.
Although cross poles have their place intraining, proceed as soonas possible as they do tend to make horses
jump flat or merely step over but a small oxer will encourage them to use their back and be rounder in their
jump.
In all the above exercises the rider’s job is to support, sustain and follow the horse’s motion without
anticipating. The horse’s job is to negotiate the exercises in a calm, attentive manner. If you feel you are
running into trouble at any point returnto the previous step, eventoa single pole if necessary. It’s evena good
idea tostart fromthe beginningeachsessionandquickly reviewthe previousstepsbefore movingon.
Next article we’ll continue the education of the young jumper with combinations, turns and further gymnastic
exercises.
