CLASSIC GOLDRUSH

Classic Goldrush was bred in the rodeo at the top of New Zealand and grew up on very steep hill country. Goldrush was quite difficult to handle and was gelded young because of this. He was briefly broken in as a 4 year old and then left untouched until he was 7 when I got asked to sell him on behalf of

LATEST NEWS FROM ALYCIA


 

Alycia Burton- Free Riding NZ added 4 new photos.

I really want to say a massive thank you to the over 600 people who came out to our show last Wednesday in Nambour!

The support we are getting here in Australia is simply overwhelming.

A few years ago I was living out of an empty unlined shipping container with no power, water, bathroom or kitchen. The door couldnt close from the inside and we had horse gear on one side of our mattress and feed on the other. NEVER would I have imagined then where we have come to now!

There will be many sacrifices involved when you step out to chase your dreams. Financial, physical and emotional.

Can I encourage you that while you might not be where you want to be YET- choose to have a grateful attitude and to keep putting one foot in front of another. Be relentless at getting back up again after failure and through trials and you WILL make it.

It can get very hard for us traveling & performing so much. There are so many things that can go wrong from sound issues, weather problems, lighting & bad surfaces to a rider and horse not having a good day.

Last Wednesday Goldrush and I took a few rails and had a few stops coming out of very slippery corners towards the end of our show. I knew he wasnt quite right- he was a bit stiff behind, was struggling with the wet dirt piling up under his feet & needed new shoes. I cut the jumping early and put the last jump right down for him & finished on a good note.

I used this situation to speak about how important it is as a trainer to deal with failure & embarrassment and to NEVER get angry & loose it with your horse. For those who say elephants have the best memories .....you haven't met a horse!! They don't forget.

The respect and support I had for my decision was incredible-
Thankyou.

Can I encourage you that the next time you have trouble at an event OR at home to remember that life often doesn't go as planned and tomorrow is always another day.

This beautiful horse of mine doesn't owe me ANYTHING and I am constantly reminded how blessed I am to have him.

Goldrush now has a brand new pair of shoes- has been to the Chiropractor and we are ready for tomorrow night!
