    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

    I hope everyone gets their own heart's desire this year and the next.






    Unexpected but this was mine for the year.

    A Richard Brooks hand engraved, silver inlayed Spade. Blessed. No question, we are blessed.

    Indeed. Horse and your hands have to be up to the task. Done right the Spade is a several year process with a lot of preparation via a hackmore first. Good hands don't usually get there till the horse is at least 5 or 6 if not older when started as a late 3 or 4 year old. But the Spanish Spade is a different animal and not what it might seem to the uninitiated. They can be very gentle on horses because if abused the horse learns it can simply brace it up with their tongue and run away with it. Anything can hurt a horse. But a simple snaffle is a much more pain compliant bit that a Spade as odd as that might seem. The snaffle and a tongue relief curb bit are way more likely to be abused by comparison. Prior to a Spade are miles and miles is a Hackmore.



    Enough time in a hackamore will eventually get you something like what is pictured below :-) A horse and his pacifier is a pretty amazing thing to experience. Pictured is another Spanish Spade used with a two rein on my horse. The green "lip stick" is a sure sign of a happy horse. But that still doesn't mean the horse can't run away with that contraption in his mouth when ever it pleases him!

    Much of the history and experience with a Spanish Spade and Californio horsemanship has been forgotten, misunderstood and simply lost. The reason for a majority of that is it simply takes so much time to do it right and get the results one is looking for. A rawhide hackamore and horse hair reins are not for everyone. They take time and wet blankets. Most good hands will tell you that without the hackamore you'll never have a bridle horse.
