Smokey and I are lucky enough to be going on a three day foundation course with US horseman, Bruce Logan. Bruce was a Parelli 3* instructor before going off run his own Foundation Station in Texas. He's worked with some of the greatest horsemen of our times including Ronnie Willis and Buck Brannaman (the "Horse Whisperer" of Robert Redford's film).

Bruce is coming to the UK for the first time in February to do the three day Foundation Course for eighteen horses and riders, including our good selves, and a ten day colt start at the new Scottish National Equestrian Centre at Oatridge, West Lothian. Spectators are welcome at the Foundation Course - �25 for one day, �45 for two and �65 for three. For advance tickets and info, email infobruceloganuk@yahoo.co.uk

There is also a demo. on the 1st February at 7.30pm at SNEC at Oatridge, to which everyone is welcome. Tickets are �20 in advance and �25 on the door; contact SNEC for tickets 0845 075 5025.

In the demo., Bruce will be working with a variety of horses including ex-racehorses needing rehabilitation and re-homing to challenging horses, young and old. He will also give a ridden demonstration.

Hope to see you there.

Enjoyed reading about Smokey and all of your adventures! Sorry to be off topic, but thought I would follow up and find out how the immunotherapy treatment went for his sweet-itch condition. We are struggling with it in four horses here in Southern California and I am looking for some solutions!

I am not sure my above comment took. I LOVE your blog. I live here in Central Oregon; USA. My husband and I are retired. I was involved with farming and ranching for most of my life. I enjoy reading about your life.

I belong to a organization here called the DAR(Daughters of the American Revolution) We join by having a proven blood relative that fought in the war. One of my patriots is John McClintock. I have quite a few realtives in Scotland. Anyway, I am so glad to find such a interesting blog. I will be back again. Have a very great day!

Scarlett, will reply to you about this by email. Basically, too early to tell yet - the midges don't come out until April / May time here. I'll keep progress noted on the site.

Wanda, glad you enjoy the site. We enjoy doing it although, like most things, it could do with more attention than it gets!

Have you went to the Bruce Logan schooling yet? If so, tell me about how it went and if you enjoyed it? I loved the Horse Whisperer! I had the honor of meeting Robert Redford a few times(regarding horses) He was very kind and quite knowledgable about horses. I think that movie really helped a lot of people become MORE aware of how a horse feels and thinks. Anyway, I will not get started on that subject or I will run out of posting room! Hope you had or have a great time!
