How We Met

***This is Gamble's Update Page!!!***
+++ Gamble is staying! We have cut the stress of showing by only going once every so often, and have been schooling on the flat instead of full 3'6 courses for lessons. He seems so much happier and has really shaped up! We are so happy with this special boy!!! :) +++*.*We may be saying goodbye to Gamble, aka Big Star, very soon. My family, being me, my mom, and my grandma, feel the need to move on to a different horse. Gamble has been very hard to ride recently and has stopped for no reason at jumps, ruling out all medical reasons, and is getting tired of being ridden by three different people. We feel he needs a consistency that we can't provide for him. Pray for him and us, please.*.

YAY! I finally got around to making this page! Please vote on it and visit every so often to see what's going on in SoCal!

Today's group riding lesson
I had so much fun today at my lesson. I rode Magic,she's a bay Arab and is 100% perfect horse. I have not rode her in a while so I forgot that you need to keep her head up or she'll trip on her own feet. And she did and I though she was going to fall over but didnt thank God! 5 people where in my group today, we rode in the outdoor arena then went to the indoor arena. I jumped Magic over cross jumps and barrels. It was fun.
I felt bad for the barn cat, she got stepped on by one of the horses and made the biggest MEOW, but I think she's ok.
Oh, I have bad eye sight so me and my BFF( who also has bad eye sight) where putting our horses in the pasture and it was dark so we could not see anything, I could have swern I saw a dead horse ( my bff saw it first)
it scaried us both, but in the end, it was just a pile of rocks.
An over all great group riding lesson =]

Thanks! thats great you're getting to show this weekend, i hope you guys do good! The division i'm showing in now with Lucky is the division i show in with Magic. but its alot different showing Lucky because Magic is the kind of horse you just set up for the jump and let him do the rest and its always perfect! My mom calls him cruise control! haha but Lucky is just a baby so i really have to help him out alot, which i'm ok with, but its alot more difficult! haha but i'm sure you know how that is! but i'm sooo ready to get Magic back and ready to show! lol

Actually this past weekend, i took Lucky to an A show. My trainer decided that since hes been great these past few months that we would go ahead and move him out of pre-greens and into childrens (2'9) and his first time ever showing with really good competition (no offense to the pre-green horses, they were just really young and not very good if you know what i mean) Lucky was perfect! The first day i didnt really expect him to get anything, becuase one, it was a really big A show, two, we moved into a bigger class with much better competition, and three I wasnt quite as confident that day because of all those reasons! haha but we ended up getting 2 firsts in over fences and a champion! I was sooo happy, Sunday he was very tired and ready to go home, but after screwing up the first course we got our act together and came back to get 2 champions! I was so proud of my baby! What about you?

I havent been able to reply to anyones messages lately cause i've been so busy with schoolwork and riding, and everything else! but i'm sure you know how that is! So i just decided it was easier to manage one horses profile rather than two! haha so hows Gamble been lately? i rode Magic yesterday and we were able to jump his first course at 2ft. since his accident! Its still very small, but for a horse who almost died...well i'd say its pretty good! haha

Thanks so uch for the vote!!! Here's one for you!!! Sorry that I wasn't able to return it sooner I have been reslly busy with loads of homework and school!!!! I also got some sad news yesterday...the county (which owns the barn and all of the horses)has decided that ii does not make enough profits and has decided to see it and the horses. I am extremly upset!!! I will try to be on as much as possible. I am going to speak about how important the barn is at a meeting that we are having with the county officals. I am alos going to start a potetion and go to the rally with signs! If you have any ideas please let me know. I am going to try to spend as much time possible with Grey. I'm going to miss him so much!!! They are going to try to send the older horses to a retirement home!!!
Sorry to bare you with the bad news,

I ride neither, but prefer English on the occasional pony ride and carousel :). So, I dunno if that counts. Jetstream wanted me to tell you that new pics of him jumping are going to be up tomorrow, and that he REALLY wishes he could jump like you and Gamble!

I saw your blog on Peek's page and wanted to leave you and that gentle giant a vote. I saw here that you are polling what type of riding we do. I ride dressage so thats english and for trail riding I ride in an Austrailian saddle. I love the Aussie saddle because it's like a cross between a western (which I used to ride all the time) and an english saddle. My Aussie has a horn but they all don't. I just tried jumping with my sweet Fancy this past Sunday and she loved it. So, I guess we'll be doing that more often! It's getting pretty late her almost 1:30 am! But I don't get home from work until 11:30pm so I've only been home a couple of hours but I'm thinking I'll go veg and watch a little TV. I have a Parrelli episode on the DVR. Hope to talk with you again.

i had some extra time and checked out all 3 of your pages. i'm sooo glad you were able to scale back the showing and keep gamble happy. you're a true horseman! i don't think any horse wants to be ridden full throttle and jumped every time out of the stall. it's our job to find what they like and reward them with it sometimes.

Yeah i know what you mean. Thats what we were so careful about with Cooper, and we're being careful about with Taylor. Taylor is kind of the horse you can push though, we flat him 2 days a week and jump him 2 days. and give him 3 days off. but when we do jump him, we jump 3ft. or 3'3. even though i know he can jump wayyyy higher! but my plan is just to wait til he turns 5 1/2 to start jumping him 3'6 or a little higher.

WHERE ARE U GAMBLE??? from Petite Fleur & your HC
Your HC friends miss you! Been wondering about you!Sorry so long but mom pulled and posted (with help from a tall strong guy !) to rotate my large pasture last evening and she woke up with a sore back and bad left shoulder and elbow! So no ride today and it is perfect for it! It is sunny, cool and about 72 to 75°F! Next Saturday will be her next time to ride me with our neighbor and Nebene the beautiful black gelding! She can hardly move today and typing is painful so we will try to blog more tomorrow!
Please whinny back soon Gamble!

Hey. I really tired today. I was at the barn. It looks like hopefully Lacey can start making a slow recovery. Nothing is set in stone. This morning she had diearhea, then like an hour later she just fell over in her stall. They got her up and took her outside to try to graze her and in case she died right there the campers won't see it. Then the vet rushed over and gave her more liquids through the IV. Then he stuck a long tube through her nostril and stomach fluids and toxins came out. I had to hold her durning all of this. The vet said that she is may start to recover in the next few days. Thanks for the vote. Grey and I appericate it!!! :) Today I walked out and opened up the gates so then the horses can run out. I got some cute pictures and a cool video. Then I went out to the pastures and took some pictures and bleached the throughs. Grey came right up to me and followed me around until I left. Meanwhile there is hay all over that he could be eating. I hope to post the new photos soon. Here's a vote for you...
~Big Grey and Shay
!*!*!*!*! I would like to make a youtube video of the Horse Channel horses. If you would let me use a picture and/or video of your horse please send it to me at .
