Blog Carnival of HorsesWelcome to the August 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I have.  I’m really pleased to see some new blogs featured here and equally glad to see old friends sending in posts! Based on this month’s posts I’ve dusted off the ear bonnet that I started crocheting at the beginning of the summer and think I’ll invest in the Riding Doctor book!

I hope you enjoy the posts below as much as I have.

Welcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsessWelcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses! We have some great blog posts lined up for this month. In fact, with the last leg of the Triple Crown coming up on Saturday, the spotlight is really on the equine community and so many of us bloggers are rooting for him! It’s hard to believe that so many young(er) equestrians haven’t experienced a Triple Crown win in their lifetime, while I was privileged to watch both Affirmed and Secretariat gallop home to victory.

Here are this month’s posts — enjoy!

Martine presents Joucas Equifeel, Part 1 and Joucas Equifeel, Part 2 posted at Tails From Provence.

Isa presents Performing the Horse posted at Horses for Discourses saying: “

The idea that Australians have a special and significant relationship with the horse has been around for a long time. From the 19th century poetry of ‘Banjo’ Patterson to the figure of the stockman in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the horse features strongly in constructions of Australian national identity. The ‘Horses for discourses’ blog is a place to discuss some of these ideas.

I am a PhD student at the Australian National University in Canberra, and I really enjoy chasing tangents! While the distractions I post on here may not be directly related to my PhD research, they nonetheless allow me to encounter different ideas, which help in shaping my thoughts.”

Welcome to the May 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsesWelcome to the May 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses! I hope you enjoy this edition; there are lots of interesting posts.

I ended this edition with a post about the Kentucky Derby which echoes my own sentiments about the big race — and really racing in general. I’ve actually come to the point where I watch the races after they’ve been run, on YouTube or another video replay. I just don’t want to see any more bad things happen. But I still love the thoroughbreds and take pleasure in watching them run.
