The HIGHLANDS - Full film | ADVENTURE | LIBERTYThe Highlands Full Film
The Island Project was an adventure of a life time, I learnt so much during the month but it also left me a whole new set of questions!The horses didn’t need me on the island they were totally free but they did have a restriction....the water around it!
I wanted to now know what happens to a relationship if you travel on a journey, could I back two horses, be able to ride them and have them at liberty while traveling across the Scottish highlands, every step we took would be unknown, if I lost them they would literally be able to run over thousands of acres.
This film is about my journey, I camp out every night, film myself and carry all my kit and equipment. The aim is to cross the Scottish highlands coast to coast with two unhandled Highland Ponies (they hadn’t even been taught to lead before) it turned out to be quite an adventure!

Camping on the Moor | 6 Ponies | 1 Dog | & The CAT!There is no better way to get to know the ponies that by camping out under the stars with them. I had just received their new pack saddle so I took them up on to Dartmoor to find a good spot to camp. This was the first time Louis the Cat or the Ponies (except Albert & Ernie) had ever been camping.

Moorland fun with Flint | Bodmin Moor | Liberty |Just One Pony!Investing time in Flint. Flint is one of my wonderful Liberty Team ponies, he is a fantastic team player but individually he shows such talent so I wanted to take some time to just play around together at Liberty. I am not asking much from him as I am more interested in the friendship between us rather than what he can do for me. This is the first time working on his own and first time up on Bodmin Moor. We had fun!
Flint is a Connemara
He is wearing Cavallo hoof boots to protect his feet from stones.

A Beach Ride with My Tribe - |Pony |Donkey |Shetland |Cat |DogThis Morning I took my my tribe for a little adventure ride along the Cornish Cliffs before heading down on to the Beach. Sadly I got the tides a bit wrong which ment the tide wasn't far enough out for a canter, but still a great experience for everyone. It was the first time Charlie (the Donkey) has joined us. I am super excited to have him in my tribe as he is so sweet. The idea of have mixed species in freedom is something I am really enjoying, this is just the start for us but they seem to enjoy each others company as much as I do so hopefully we can learn lots along the way.
Comet - Connemara Pony
Louis - Cat
Inca - Dachshund

Balance - 2 Donkeys 2 Ponies 1 Cat 1 Dog & a SUP board!Always trying to find ways to improve my balance! lol It's funny when you add an another element like two Donkeys or the Cat you suddenly find the thing that was initially hard becomes second nature and you adapt to quickly change your focus to the area it is needed....Never stop dreaming!
Connemara Ponies are Comet & Barney who are 7 & 6yrs old respectively.
The two Donkeys are called Walter and Willow, they are both from a rescue charity, they were wild, unhandled and in a horrible state when I got them 18months ago. They have been learning to drive, this was the first time I had tried roman riding with them upfront!
My cat is called Louis he is a 6yr old Siamese
Inca is my naughty (but perfect) Dachshund!

A Moorland Adventure with my mixed TRIBE!My deep passion is for working with horses, it has been since I left school but over the last year or two I have been giving myself the opportunity to play around with my other animals. It is fascinating trying to work at liberty with any animal, but I’ve been learning so much from taking my mixed species of furry friends out and about. It has really improved my horsemanship as your focus is on being the right kind of human for each of the animals and of course they all have very different requirements for being happy and confident. This was the first time any of them had been up on the moor so again something very new to us all. The feeling of confidence in my relationship with my horses makes it possible to be able to try this. The smiles are very much heart felt when you see Louis the cat having a blast or just so simply riding with all the wild ponies reinless without even thinking about it. We met many lovely people up on the moor, it was pretty cool to give everyone something additional to smile at as Lily the lamb trots over to say hi! I hope you enjoy the video. Emx

Horse Shopping & Location Scouting in ICELANDFinding the right horses and locations to have adventures isn't a 5 minute job. Enjoy a closer look at our first trip to Iceland, it's April so it was Freeeeeezing cold but such an Epic location...To be Continued!
I just bought my horses a tree!Giving the ponies a happy life is so important to me, for all they give, if I can do something that makes their life a little more interesting and fun on a day to day basis then that’s only going to help our relationship. Each year I try and add a new feature to their summer playground, 2 years ago we added giant stones which they love to scratch and hoon around, last year we added a natural wooded wicker shelter, and today I just got them a tree!....I’m not going to lie this one is a little fun for me to as of course it has to be jumped! 😀 many thanks to Sørwest for finding this HUGE oak tree!

Driving two rescue donkeys over DartmoorWalter and Willow were rescued from a charity, they were both wild and had terrible feet when they arrived. I have been slowly training them and this is Walters third time pulling the little cart. They are really attached to each other so Willow came along as well to keep him company. Thanks to Cavallo hoof boots who have helped massively to get them able to walk about comfortably. We covered about 10 miles in total....with a few tea breaks!
