How We Met

My mother had bought a horse, which is my horse's full brother, from a breeder and when she went to look for her horse, I found mine. He was extremely afraid of people and totally untrained. But after winning his trust and friendship, I trained him for many different types of events. Now we are partners in many AMHR shows. He wins lots of blues. :).

WHEW! That was along after noon. Me and Katie went to the barn to help out and ride. When we got there the farrier was there with Little Guy cause he started foundering! So they had to soak his feet in buckets of ice water so that the inflamation wouldnt get worse. and if you didn't know already that Snickers colliced on Wednesday night, now you do. She is in terrible condition. She is on IVs and cant eat or anything... its very sad. But she'll make, So lets all hope and pray for her, shes gonna need it to get better. After we helped clean stalls and all that fun stuff! lol. Katie got to ride Pippi bareback and I got to (finally) ride Timone!! YAY! He isdoing alot better but he was a little stiff when i rode him. He was antsy at first but when I got on him he did fine and calmed down. We just did a some walking for today. So we didnt push it, I dont want him to get anymore hurt. Also we got to ride outside!! YAY! we were really excited to finally get out of the indoor! So we will probably have our lesson outside on Sunday. After we helped take the rest of the horses out when they finished eating. It was a long afternoon at the barn! Tell you all how Sunday goes! PS NEW PICTURES OF TIMONE AND I AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS PAGE

Daily Blog--News on the baby!
I got some pictures of the baby on here, I still do not have a name :). Anyways, I put them at the bottom of Zorro's page! They are not the best, but hey, I have only had like 24 hours to take pictures so far. For those of you who do not know he was born early morning on Feb 16th. He is a BIG boy, those pictures are from 1 day old. Anyways, so I have been spending every spare moment of my time with him! Quick tip/reminder-a mare must be dewormed within 24 hours of giving birth because the hormones given off from birthing causes a activation of the worms and if not cared for properly can lead to tissue damage, stunting of growth, joint damage, or even death of the foal! Well, as soon as I get some really good pictures of him, I will post them on Zorro's page too, I do not want to put up a page for him yet, because I have not decided if I am going to buy him, or another foal yet. I hope you guys understand. --Amber P.S. I think Zorro is jelous, b/c he is not getting all the attention anymore :).

Hi everyone, isn’t it great? It is Friday!!! I just took a spread sheet and database class exam, it was not that hard, I got 1 wrong, oh well. I am looking at buying a new saddle it is a medium oil show saddle. It is nothing compared to the custom made saddle I show in right now, but it is pretty nice and I wanted something else to practice in. I have a smaller saddle, but I would rather practice in something more comparable in size to what I show in. Also, my younger brother needs a show saddle. I picked it up yesterday to try on my horses, but I think I will try it on today because it was snowing yesterday and I do not want to damage the leather! Thanks for everyone’s comments, I think I am getting back to you, if I do not just tell me, I might have missed it, like all humans I am not perfect! REMINDER-we are getting closer to show season, it is time or almost time to do a boot clip on our horse’s legs, so they are nice and tidy come show time! QUICK TIP-this one goes with me getting a saddle, remember that when checking to see if a saddle fits, try it directly on the horse’s back without a saddle pad, this will give you the best idea, then you can run your hand underneath and make sure it has even contact. INTERESTING FACT-four horse chariot races where introduced to the Olympic games in 648 B.C. Well, that is all for now, Amber and Zorro.

You are lucky, I still have one more exam this week! Oh, well it should be one of the easier ones! Hi, I got to go home yesterday!!! It was great to see the horses again; they were kind of wet from the rain and stuff we have been getting. Unfortunately no riding, we have this weird mix of snow, slush and water on the ground, too slippery to ride on, plus I had too much studying and stuff to do. We are having weird weather right now, and since we got all this rain/slush/snow stuff, it is just going to freeze up on us the end of this week. Oh well. I think I am going to add a “Did you know?” fact or a quick tip, like I did in my last blog. Quick fact: The Romans where the first to come up with the idea of a horse shoe, but instead of nailing on the shoe they used leather thongs so they where removable. If you want to get some great e-mail newsletters that have training updates along with just current events, check out America’s QH daily, it is free and you do not have to be a member of AQHA to get their newsletter. Oh, my chemistry test I took on Monday went well, I got a 97% on it! Remember C Me Shine is running for HOTD on Feb 28th. Please keep voting for Zorro so he can get HOTM! If you would like to see something in my daily blogs, just let me know! That is all for now, Amber and Zorro.

Ok, nothing interesting happened yesterday, but it got cold enough for slush to form this morning. I have a Chemistry Lab exam today, wish me luck! Just so all of you know, that have not been in MN before. We get about as cold in the winter as any place in the US, and almost as hot in the summer. It is because we do not have any oceans nearby. Plus our summers are sooooo humid, it feels at least 10degrees warmer than it actually is. Last year we had a very nice mild summer, I LOVED it! It made it nice to ride, and I did not have to ride before 10:00 in the morning when it starts to get hot. We have a nicely sized above ground pool that we put up every year to keep us cool. Today’s TIP: now that spring is coming around, soak all of your brushes, and dirty halters in a bucket filled with warm water and a little bit of soap! It works wonders, I am sure some of you already do this, but if you do not, it is amazing how well it cleans everything! Ttyl, Amber and Zorro p.s. I left a vote for you!

It is kind of funny, b/c of the miniature horses, I first assumed you were in like 8th grade, LOL! So English major??? Wow, I am not that great of a writer :). I got an A- in my freshman English Comp 101 class!!!!! Oh, well, I was at least pretty close to my 4.0! Well, sorry, no training update today, I am staying in town were I go to college the next couple days, due to the road conditions, so I am burdening my mother with the chore of taking care of my horses! But as soon as I ride again, I will be sure to put out an update! To all of you with temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s, I challenge you to come spend a winter in MN!!! Well, we actually did get to 40 degrees yesterday and it rained, and it is still around 38 degrees this morning and raining more!, but it is going to be cooling off again, and all the standing water on the roads will probably just freeze there, that is why I am staying in town, to avoid having to drive on ice. It probably would not be bad on a short drive but I am 35 miles away from the campus where I take my classes, somedays I think 65 mi/hr takes forever, lol! Well, thanks for voting for Zorro, please keep them coming so he can get HOTM! As always, leaving a vote for you! Thanks, Zorro and Amber

Saturday’s update! Today I worked with Zorro and Kai. It was much colder to day, the low 20s and a little breezy, but for a native Minnesotan, it feels nice still! So I ground drove Kai with the western saddle, I think it was a first with the western saddle, I usually use a surcingle and sometimes the English saddle. She was amazing and had her sweet personality! I rode Zorro hunt seat, he was pretty good, a little funny about his headset at first, but got over it, so today went pretty well in the end. It was nice to be able to ride! I hope tomorrow is pretty nice too. I did wear a coat today when I rode, where yesterday I wore just a sweatshirt, so I am being sensible about the weather. Sunday’s update, it got to be around 35 degrees today, much better! I only rode Zorro though, because I had a bunch of studying and whatnot to do. I rode him Hunt Seat and he was very good for me, and did not even complain about working on the bit!!! Improvements being made everyday! It was a little slippery, but not too terribly bad, so I could canter, yippy! Hope everyone else is doing well, and able to ride if you have the same winter conditions as me! All of you in the south where it is over 60, you are just spoiled, JK! Well, thanks for voting for Zorro, please keep voting so he can get HOTM, he can only get it with your help and I really mean it! Ttyl, A and Zorro, As always voting for you!

I am a freshman, going for business! So why did you decide to sell the big horses and keep the minis? I had a lot of time when Zorro was a yearling and I was teaching him to do showmanship! I am not sure if he would do it right now if I asked him, but if you gave me 2 15 min sessions to brush him up on his showmanship, I know he would be able to do it again. I have been focussing on riding a bunch lately, well when I am not suddying! I typed up an Update that I am copying and pasting onto everyone's page, here it is: Hi, I thought I would send out an update for everyone ?! Well, first off, thank you to everyone who is supporting Zorro while he is running for HOTM!!!! All your votes count! Ok, so today it got to be 45 degrees, woot, woot! I was loving it up! So once I got home from the campus, I rode Chaps and then a little later rode Zorro. I worked on Dressage and Hunt seat with both of them. Chaps was amazing as always, and of course, if you knew me, you would know I have a hard time keeping a bridle on a horse’s face. So after I “finished” riding him in the English saddle, I took off his saddle and bridle and rode him bareback and bridleless :). He is really well trained so it is sooooo much fun. When I ride him bridleless he goes into his Western Pleasure frame. We rode circles in the yard and went out on the roads and stuff, worked on sidepassing and pivoting too, it was fun. When I rode Zorro, he started out really distracted and a tiny bit hyper, not jumpy hyper, but just lots of energy and good movement hyper, if that makes any sense. But by the time I was done he was listening to me and quite calm and well behaved. I worked him in both a Dressage head set and a stock hunt seat head set. He is still a little confused with all this English stuff since I started him Western Pleasure. For example, when I canter in his dressage head set, he really wants to go down into his Western Pleasure frame. He would make a really good peanut roller, but I would rather have a horse that can move, that is why I do the dressage! Well, hope this is not too long. Once again, thank you for voting for Zorro, please keep the votes coming! Also could you drop C Me Shine #112352, a vote, she is running for HOTD on the 28th.
