Although it’s only nine miles from downtown, there’s no mistaking PWP for an urban park. The grounds around the main entrance look more like an English estate than a public park, or rather, they look like the grounds of an English estate would look if the owners invited hoards of strangers to visit their property. But then, parks are designed to fit the communities they’re in, and Percy Warner Park is located in Nashville’s most formal (and most expensive) neighborhood – Belle Meade. It’s by no means just a neighborhood park though; folks come from near and far to take advantage of all PWP has to offer.
Throughout the history of mankind, the noble horse has fought many battles by our side to help us achieve our freedom. Do not let this holiday pass without remembering their important role in our American history, as well, because more often times than not, the horse is merely forgotten in our nation’s great history; they have become part of the background and their memory needs to be brought to the forefront.
The pole came next, (the large diameter steel tube that sits between the horses and connects the chariot to their breast harness.) Although an optimist by nature, I wanted a speedy method to separate the horses (plus thrashing steel shod hooves) from me in the chariot, should it all go badly wrong. The answer was tractor technology. A search of agricultural engineers produced a very sturdy quick release coupling designed for farm machinery, to connect pole to chassis.
Now how to train a horse to do tricks such as kiss is quite simple. Just let him smell a treat and draw it away from him and towards you. When he tries to reach for it with his mouth give him the cue and kiss him, then feed him the treat. Again, do it repeatedly until he gets used to it. Remember to kiss him with love.
Check reviews and recommendations before making your purchase. Many customers buying larger sizes feel that they have to ‘take what they can get’ when it comes to equestrian clothing, but this is not the case. There are many brands and stockists out there of varying quality and pricing. Do your research to make sure you get the best value for money when making your purchase online.
Plenty turning, stopping and some trotting. I know many trainers only line drive a horse once or twice and personally I think that is a big mistake, no matter how well your horse acts. It is virtually impossible to get your horse to understand the pull on the lines right from just few times out line driven. And then if he gets spooked while hooked first time I’m sure he forgets all about those rapid lessons about being driven and tries to fight away from the pain on his mouth caused by the driver trying to settle him down.
The others met them halfway, but the mother horse was careful. Protective and proud, she sidestepped the others and led her colt off towards the one that waited. the one that watched with expectant eyes beneath an unruly thick shank of forelock. She would know the beautiful form of her colt’s sire anywhere, just as she remembered every one of the piebald patches of black upon that pristinely white coat.
