Hi Simon,

I love what you are doing. Can you direct us to your complex article?

Hi there, the article is in pre production so if you go to you should find the piece under the name Class race horse which can be taken a number of ways as you will see.
I'm still not entirely happy with it but it says a lot of the things I want to say about our relationships with our horses and with each other.

Horsepower measures work, ponypower measures pleasure!

Hi there Simon!!

Thank you for directing me in the direction of this site. *grins*

I'm still loving all the photos i see of Henry, he's such a cheeky little thing....who knows...sometime soon i could be terrifying the residents of my town with a saddlechariot too...fingers crossed!!

:D Gudday Simon!
I love your saddlechariots! I read on your 'site that one has been sold to Australia? I would love to contact the buyer for more info - and eventually get one for myself... do you have any contact details for them? I have a 14hh Cob that would float in one of those - with me behind, his behind! (Groan)

Oh, man, Simon, this looks like fun!

Do you ever get to the US? Are there people here using the Saddlechariot?

Love your "organic all terrain vehicle" pitch -- I see the green revolution now... :-) (Gas here in the US is quickly approaching European prices and we live in the land of commuting. I see the shift now from "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" to "a Saddlechariot and pony in every garage!" Oh, how I'd love this!)

In the next year or two my husband and I are going to move back to the East Coast (where we're both originally from) from California where we're now living, so we can buy a small farm and I can realize my fantasies of living on the set of the movie, "Babe." I now have a new layer to that fantasy -- Circe, my Haflinger, driving in a Saddlechariot as we tool around the property and pretend to do chores...and down to town for groceries...

(And I think I need the Ben Hur theme music in the background...)


All the best,

Simon, I love your writing.
I loved the EMW demo with Henry in Shropshire last year and the Brecon demo for Equine Market Watch sanctuaries with Obama this year.
Bluebell the rescue sanctuary donkey was a star, from never seen a driving vehicle to not bothered at all, without the decency to show the audience how scary this is. And of course your very fun, serious but politically incorrect style, is informative, honest and refreshing.

Are you and Obama still staying in Brecon for the time being? Hope you are well and life is being kind to you, enjoying the beautiful scenery whatever you are up to.
