In his latest works, designed exclusively for The Cool Hunter, digital artist Massimo Colonna revisits the classic smooth lines and architectural design elements featured in his ‘Gravity’ series. ‘The Pool’ collection is reminiscent of the chic poolside glamour so brilliantly captured by the legendary photographer Slim Aarons from the 50s through to the 80s. However, […]

The latest nightlife hot spot in Johannesburg is Alice & Fifth. It advertises itself as an underground avant-garde venue and the address for luxury dining. It is a darkly masculine night club in a rich, retro style we have seen much of lately with its velvet upholstery, dark wood, brass fittings, heavy drapery and no […]

Those of us who see thousands of design and architecture projects each month are not easily impressed as we tend to see the same ideas over and over. So, it is an exceptional delight when we see something that actually stops us and impresses in its visual impact and impeccable execution. We suspect that even […]

Ted Pim, the Northern Irish artist whose work we have represented exclusively for some time, is surprising us again. His darkly moody paintings, channelling old masters and oozing drama and covert tragedy have so far covered floral subjects in various stages of becoming undone. Now he has applied his melodramatic touch on portraits. Once again, […]

In the case of a holiday residence project named SAJ III in Mexico, many things went right, both by plan and serendipitously, and incredible beauty resulted. In SAJ III, the time-tested cooperation between a young family with four kids and an architectural firm that took the time to really read the landscape has resulted in […]

Men’s grooming is a growth segment and barbershops have kept popping up daily for several years. And while stylish men’s full-service spas are not yet as common as the fairly sterile unisex spas and decidedly feminine women’s spas, there are signs of significant growth in bigger cities, and the competition is heating up. We have […]

Staying in a luxury top-floor suite at Aman Tokyo is an experience that redefines what a stay at a mega-city hotel can be. Aman Tokyo is Aman Resorts’ first decidedly urban resort. It occupies the top six floors (levels 33-38) of the Otemachi Tower, the headquarters of the Mizhuo Bank that was designed by Kohn Pedersen […]

I know horses intimately as an art subject, the musculoskeletal system, the way the coat shines over the muscles and the facial expressions. Pastel drawings of African animals and Racehorses. Digital Photographic Art of African Animals printed on canvas. Mosaic rocks and frames. I live on a wildlife estate in
I am a digital painter. I switched from oils to digital when I found that the effects I could achieve far surpassed anything I could do in oils alone. I can, and frequently do mix the effects of oils and water colour on one canvas and can then draw the effect of charcoal on top of both.
Mistake #1 – Thinking your horse is like a dog or a cat.
Unless the new horse owner has been educated, they may think their horse is like a cat or dog. The new horse owner may pat his thigh and say, “C’mon” a few times and the horse will just leap into the trailer like a happy dog.
Since there is no one right way or one wrong way to train a horse, you may want to change the method you are using to train your horse. You have several different ways to choose from. If you are not having any luck with one method you can always try another.
BIT VS. BITLESS TRAINING
When it comes to the welfare of the horse, riders and trainers do their best to ensure that the horse is not subject to pain under saddle. One of the most common debates is about training horses to be ridden with a bit and training them to be ridden without a bit. There are many advantages to both methods. For certain situations, a bit may be more efficient than not using one. In other situations, riding without a bit may be more comfortable to the horse than using a bit. It depends on the situation, the training level of the horse, the rider’s abilities, and the goals that you are trying to achieve with your horse as to which method will work best.
The animal kingdom has a pecking order, which is very similar to our military. In the military the ranks in pecking order is General down to Private. The General will make the decisions on where to go and what to do, etc.
You should practice things your horse already knows before introducing something new. New skills should be introduced on something your horse already knows. Building on previously learnt skills is the key to being successful in horse training.
