How We Met

My mom always loved (and still loves) the 'diamond in the rough' horses. so one day when i was 8, (10 yrs ago) my mom was looking for a new show horse. so she went to this lady who takes neglected horses and breaks/trains them and sells them. so she found Joe at 13 y/o, just broke and trained, terribly underweight and looked like he couldnt carry a person over a jump, let alone him self!! but she bought him for $500 and got to work on him! A year later they were showing and winning in the local 'A' shows, and then onto profesional riding!! woot woot. 5 years ago he was retired to just a pleasure for fun horse. which hes so good at! ily Joe!!.

Sydney's pretty good about being stuck in the stall, he actually gets lazier! The only bad part is that he gets REALLY fat even if we only give him a handful of grain--he's such an easy keeper. lol, the ponies eat more than he does!!

It's pretty rainy here too, unfortunately. Hopefully it'll let up soon though, so he can get turned out! Does he get crazy when he's inside all the time?

Wow he's really getting better fast then! It's smart to keep him alone though, just in case. You never know what they'll do :)

Sounds like it could have ended up a lot worse. I've been pretty lucky with Sydney too, the worst that happened was the splint injury and that was 80% healed when we found out about it!! But he still needed stall rest for 6 weeks but I didn't mind because he was getting better.

Oh no! That sounds awful!! Right when you were moving up too, that really stinks I know. I hope he gets better fast!

oooh she is lucky he is gorgeous!! I can't believe she really gets to train with Beezie Madden, that's so awesome. I'd probably be jealous too :) But I bet you will get there one day. It seems like riding Abercrombie will help. I hope the show goes well!

That's so cool! I hope it goes well! We did all right, I was reserve champion in the equitation and pinned well in the hunters. Syd got kinda tired though cause it was warm lol so I decided not to show again the next day. I was tired too so I didn't really mind :)
Good luck with Abercrombie!!

That sounds amazing! She must be so athletic because I don't think I've ever seen a horse take out two strides!! Maybe one. Sydney did that yesterday because we were at a show and he got a little excited plus the line was really short. I would probably be scared if I was going any faster! lol

Haha Sydney just loves the little roller in the middle! I try to ride my sister's horse sometimes too because he's almost the opposite of what I'm used to, I almost never have to pull back on the reins! But with him you do. Abercrombie looks like she would be amazing to jump!

Wow that sounds pretty serious! I used to have one of those Mikmar combo bits with rope over the nose for Syd because he kept taking off with me so I know what you mean about just knowing you can use it!! It's cool that you found Lucky though and he sounds so great!

I love my myler :) I have about 4 different bits but I really only use 2...why did Matt need such a harsh bit?

Haha the best ones always do! What a great story I love it! So does he buck or what when he doesn't pee? I wish Syd's owners told us all that, when I tried him out he was going in a bicycle chain but they said it was just because he hadn't been ridden for a year and they didn't know what he would do. So we took him home thinking he'd be fine and he dumped me so many times because he galloped around the ring and I couldn't stop him! But we got it figured out, he jumps in a Pelham now and I can hack him in a snaffle most days lol.

Yeah I know what you mean about the bucking...if there's wind and it's not over 60 degrees I'm holding on tight! But Lucky sounds great! haha I wish Syd was always that happy to work, all he wants to do it eat!

No, I usually don't compete over the winter. I tried it once but it was so cold!! But the first show is next weekend so I'm excited. Do you show in the winter?

I'm glad Abercrombie was ok! That sounds so scary! I've never actually had a horse fall while I was jumping but it would probably freak me out. She's gorgeous by the way, I voted for her!

That sounds like a challenge! But fun too. Yeah, a couple summers ago Syd broke his splint bone and I noticed there was this bump but he wasn't really lame until more than a month later. Like I felt it but no one else saw it so we didn't call the vet, but then we got the xrays back and I felt so bad! Because I made him jump and everything the whole time. But his leg healed fast, but now he has some jumping habits from being hurt..

I can't imagine riding 5 horses a day! Sydney's the only one I usually ride, unless somebody asks me to ride while they're on vacation or something. Sometimes I ride my sister's horse too, just for a change. I also rode a lot of different horses when Sydney was injured, but I would rather be riding him :)

My sister has a Quarter horse too, Stan. He is the most athletic horse I ever met! But he kinda has an attitude :) She's thinking about doing jumpers with him because they both like to go fast.
Do you have more than just Lucky and Joe?

omg ball spurs save my life! I don't know what I'd do without them. I don't really know how much high Sydney can go because no one else jumps him and we're kind of moving up together from here...the highest we've done is 3'3.

Wow Lucky that's amazing! Haha, I haven't done jumpers with Syd because I have to use long spurs just to get him through the hunters! Plus I think I would be afraid to go really fast...have you?

Come visit me, Peter, Stan & Sydney.

Congratulations on moving up! I hope the show goes well :) Wow have you jumped Lucky 4'3? That's really high! I usually jump Syd 3' in Children's, but I've jumped him 3'3 in my lessons before. The jumps are almost as tall as his legs lol!

Sydney is my guy for the Children's Hunters--although he misses the crossrail days :)
I would love to show Peter in hunters as well if he gets big enough for me.

What do you show your horse in? Both of them are so white!!
