Posts Tagged ‘Arabians’

Cat Hill grew up in upstate New York on a working farm. Her earliest memory is of the day her parents got her a pony for her birthday. She grew up on that pony, which was followed by a series of Arabian show horses. In college, she started riding show hunters through the Intercollegiate Horse Show Team at the University of Geneseo. After receiving her degree, she followed her love of horses to Ireland to be a working student at Mullingar Equestrian Center, where she became barn manager before returning to the States. Hill has been a working student for a Grand Prix dressage rider, worked the Winter Equestrian Festival for a Grand Prix jumper rider, managed a AA hunter barn, and managed top eventer Mara DePuy’s barn. She now freelances as a groom, as well as teaching lower level riders in dressage, jumping, and eventing. Hill co-authored the bestselling TSB book WORLD-CLASS GROOMING FOR HORSES with Emma Ford, who runs Phillip Dutton’s barn.

“After three years of struggling with my balance and struggling to find myself and being told I would never make it in the horse world,” Hill says, remembering when she first learned of Sally Swift’s methods, “I was just about read to quit when somebody handed me [CENTERED RIDING].”

Hear what else she has to say about CENTERED RIDING as she helps us celebrate our 30th Anniversary in this short video:

On Thursday, November 13, twenty-three Arabian horses were seized from a farm in Woodstock, Vermont, where they were found in dark stalls, standing in several feet of manure, emaciated and eating the wooden doors and siding of the stable in a feeble attempt to sustain themselves. The horses are currently housed on the grounds of Green Mountain Horse Association in South Woodstock, where veterinarians and volunteers are working with the Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society to nurse them back to health in the hopes that most of them will go on to find new homes and better lives.

The Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society is in desperate need of assistance in supporting this effort. Please join Trafalgar Square Books in making a donation–they are seeking monetary aid, volunteers to help care for and handle the horses, as well as feed and bedding.

We all have so much to be thankful for…let’s join together to pay it forward and give these deserving horses full meals, clean stalls, and kind hands.
