Happy birthday to the best horse in the whole world! (Ahhh well I do really know that the world is filled with horses who are the best horse in the whole world – but yes this one REALLY is special! )
Read on to the end of this blog and find out about the beautiful birthday present that Sabina gave to Bobby and what I decided was the best birthday present I could give to him.
My heart just fills when I think of this amazing horse who had the courage to resist me so fiercely and then the heart to show me the path to all that we could be together.
Bobby is WHY we have the book Bobby’s Diaries. Bobby is WHY we have Zen Connection with Horses. Bobby is WHY we have the on line program Fast Track to Brilliant Riding that is standing for creating the possibility of major and beautiful change in the horse world, giving people a new vision of what could be between horses and humans.
Bobby is WHY thousand of horses now have more fun with their people because of our beautiful, beautiful on line horse training, including the free horse lessons that people get with The Six Keys to Happiness with Your Horse.
He started the whole dang thing…
Bobby was born on the second of November, which that year was Melbourne Cup Day. He was named Equity Park Game Boy, his stable name Bobby for short – the same stable name as the legendary Australian throughbred racehorse Phar Lap. Sheila still has in pride of place on her walls, the photo of Phar Lap Bobby laying down in the straw, with his strapper laying with him.
My best friend Sheila bred Bobby by putting a thoroughbred show stallion over her ex-police stud mare. Horses are rarely sold from the police stud and never sold after they are branded with the Queen’s brand. Bobby’s mum Cassie was sold off as four year old for lack of height although she later grew much taller.
Being police stud bred, Bobby’s mother probably had a touch of Warmblood that they often put over the horses on the police stud to grow them a bit taller and more solid. That explains the slightly heavier look that Bobby has – a little more than the traditional thoroughbred.
I remembered that I had been there at his birth, but Sheila quite emphatically tells me that I am remembering the foal after him. Bobby was meant to be Sheila’s 8 year old son’s Shane’s horse, planning ahead for a horse for Shane to grow into. I think Shane just lost interest as he grew up and at one point Sheila had a doctor tell her that with an old neck injury, she was never to get on a horse again if she cared about not becoming a quadriplegic, so she was no longer allowed to ride.
Bobby was a youngster when that happened, just a few rides under his saddle and I took him on to ride him for her. I couldn’t have afforded to buy him at the time, he was worth a fortune to a show home, having won Open Breeding Champion as a yearling colt at Melbourne Royal Show – a beautifully put together horse.
I am not sure how much later after this, we had a bit of a windfall – the same windfall that enabled me to go overseas and study with one of the great horsemen – and I wrote out a cheque for five thousand dollars with a big smile.
I was so disappointed when I got to Sheila’s house that there was nobody home – so with a wicked feeling of anticipation, I left the cheque in one of her runners that was at the back door.
What a surprise she got when she tried to stuff her foot into the shoe!
Anyway, Bobby’s story about how he made a stand for us and changed the world is written better in Bobby’s Diaries.
So… The first ten people who email me on the contact page above, can have a Bobby’s Birthday present of a gift copy of the e-book Bobby’s Diaries – Straight From the Horse’s Mouth to You, a completely free gift and AFTER those ten people have had their gift, anyone who emails me straight after reading this blog, can have that book at 1/3 of the normal $29.95 price and get the book in Bobby’s honour for $10.00. Again just email me to arrange that special price, I’ll send you a Paypal invoice.
And that’s not all folks.
I wondered what I could give as a gift to the horse who changed the world and decided that 10 more horses and people with their lives changed by Fast Track to Brilliant Riding would probably show my deep appreciation of him.
So… I have decided that the first ten people who come back to me by email can have Fast Track to Brilliant Riding for $100. Corey do not pick up the phone to thump me with it! This is Bobby’s birthday present and the loveliest way I can think of to gift him is to bring another ten people into the fold who might not have afforded it otherwise.
Corey has been following this on line program for a long time now and is constantly telling me that at the $550 price that is currently, it is way too cheap and that it is worth mega more.
These ten people will get the full course benefits for this price. They will get to join our wonderful community for as long as they need the support or enjoy the community. They will learn how to help their horse to become everything calm and co-operative and confident that they wished their horse could be and they will get to become confident and brilliant riders, really fast – if they apply themselves to their 81 lesson on line program.
And even bigger, these ten people will get the same guarantee that I about that that I give to everybody.

And here is a treat for us all – Sabina has put a beautiful mantra to music in honour of Bobby and for his birthday. Click here to listen to that. [highlight color=”blue”]ishqallah.mp3[/highlight] Sabina says that she sends this song out in honour of Bobby, who knows how to love like God loves – which is what Ishq’Allah Maboudallah means.
What a beautiful sentiment Sabina. Thankyou from both of us…
