Flik Equestrian Journals

We love horses. We've struggled to keep track of our horse’s goals, training times, or health records. We have often wished that we could keep all this information in one, easy-to-access place. Well, we don't have to wish any longer and neither do you! With the Flik Endurance Journal, you can do all this and more! The Flik Endurance Journal is more than just a horse diary. It offers many features like packing lists, movement records, and a section to express gratitude. Here are just a few of the sections in this journal: Your information which includes personal goal setting, equine-related expenses, and your club information Your horse’s information which includes breeding details, veterinary history, and feeding regimes A training section which includes...

Why weigh your horse regularly.

Why do we include a weight tape with every Journal???? Many large, professional stables and breeding facilities across all disciplines weigh their horses daily. Weight tells a lot about our horses current state of health, the quality of feeds and/or pasture and can be indicative of possible future changes and issues. A weight pattern can also be helpful information to your vet in their diagnosis of problems. The reality for us horse loving individuals though is that it just isn't practical without access to equine scales and we'll, more time. But it is an extremely worthwhile habit to get into, so as well as including a weight tape with your journals we've provided a monthly weight "check in" to help...

I started my journal journey mid year.

It's a crappy feeling.

I was two months off finishing the old...

The horsey life isn't easy.

A horsey life isn't an easy one to choose, but ask any one of us horse loving addicts and we will tell you that we wouldn't change it for ANYTHING!  Horsey make us happy, they make our heart sing, so our true resilience always shines for them.  When you own horses, everything in your life is impacted and it can be ridiculously challenging to achieve your equestrian or pleasure riding goals. It might be a challenge of money, time or even just finding the motivation when the rest of life is so exhausting.  Flik Journals have two sections for goal setting; one for Personal and one for each of your horses. This is because everything we do personally is directly impacted...

Founder opens Flik!

Flik Equestrian officially opens! "At the Queensland State Endurance Championships this year I really wanted to stand up and give something away at the Pre-Ride talk. I didn't mainly because I didn't want to prolong everyone getting some sleep before midnight. I would have liked to congratulate every single rider, who made it there to that point where you are one of the excited starters in the crowd, vetted in and eagerly awaiting a midnight start. Everyone has their own very unique challenges to conquer in their journey, just to get to that point and whether you get through the actual ride or not, that is a HUGE part of your story and part of your achievements. And I think that...
