How We Met

I was looking for a dressage barn in Tuscaloosa, AL, since I'm moving there this summer, and found out his owner needed to sell him. I rode him, took several lessons, and knew he was the right horse for me - the perfect schoolmaster! At the moment, I'm leasing him, but I may well buy him (I hope!).

This is going to be kind of lenghthy, so I'm going to do some c/p this time.

I can't believe I missed our first HOTD! I was out of town early because of the impending bad weather and didn't have internet connection. Thanks to everybody who voted, especially my longtime friends here. Am looking forward to getting to know more of you all.

I got a new rope for Christmas from my friend who owns the barn, and he's going to help me get so I can actually rope with Bradford (who will enjoy it-I think he misses the excitement of rodeos). We had a lovely ride tonight in spite of the wind. We got into some loose wire that was in the ditch and I had to get off and move Bradford's front leg-he had it on one side of the wire and all the others were on the opposite side. So I had to use my "alternative mounting device" (I'll have to post pics sometime) to get back on-Bradford was very good and stood perfectly still until I could mount up.

Thanks again! Wish I was online that day but I'm still excited!

Come visit me, Bradford Strings.

A dog looks up to a man, a cat looks down on a man, but a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal.

Here's a vote! =)
I closed Izzy and Gracie's pages because I am spending WAY too much time on the computer and it takes up way too much time responding to all their pages. I will open them back up about February, after Ferina's HOTM run. You can still vote/blog, but I most likely won't be responding to them. I will still have updates about Gracie and Izzy on their pages under their how we met! =) Thanks so much! ~Chandler, the girls, and Izzy~

Cymbie and I rode our first ever dressage test together - training 4 - and he went like a champ! We came home with a 68% score! He has a reputation for being very spooky at shows, but he didn't live up to it; rather, he stayed cool as a cucumber and didn't bat an eye at anything. He even ignored the huge 18-wheeler that tried to turn into the road leading right past the warm-up ring. He stayed relaxed all the way through the test! I am so proud of him - and I dare say, he's been looking mighty pleased with himself since the test, too!

Thank you all for the votes!
I appreciate your comments, too - if I don't reply directly, it's because my job keeps me on the road a lot, which makes blogging almost impossible... Short update: Cymbie and I are going to show for the first time together on November 14, either Training 4 or Level 1/1. And we're also going to do a musical freestyle, probably in December. It's all very exciting - after 25 years out of the saddle, things are moving fast and furiously! BTW, it looks like we may be going for horse of the day soon. Please help - we need all the help we can get!

Come visit me, Salieri II & Cymbeline.

How's everything going with you? Thanks so much for the congrats for Pippin's hotd and for noticing how cute he is. It was a really nice surprise.

I had a really great ride on Prince yesterday. I rode with the English saddle again and I put the jump standards on their sides and wedged the poles on them. That was much more secure and he only refused the first time. After that he jumped every time and it was so much fun. They were only a foot high but this is a huge improvement.

Pippin's flymask came but it's too small and rubs on his eyeballs. So, I need to see if I can return it and get a larger size. He really needs it badly. A few nights ago I took him out with the cart and Melian came too. This was the second time Melian has been in the cart and the first time we've done it alone. They were both really good but I need to work out some commands. Everytime I told Melian to do something Pippin would try to do it. I had never really thought about how much attention he pays to what I say. He's really such a good boy.

Melian gave me a big scare yesterday. While I was riding Prince his owners were taking care of her and she escaped and ran off without them noticing until it was too late. She can run very fast and she didn't stop. She ran out the gate and down the highway and then through lots of fields. I tried calling her and then got in the car and started down the road slowly, and calling constantly. I couldn't see her anywhere and she was still running scared. I finally turned around because I figured she couldn't have gone as far as that and started back slowly.

Suddenly I saw her in the distance among the trees and deep grass. First I thought she was a deer but then realized that it was Melian. I immediately stopped and ran across the road to call her. Luckily there was a hole in the fence right there and I scooted under. When Melian heard my voice she was SO relieved. She came running super fast and cried the whole way. Then she jumped into my arms and kissed me over and over again. Prince's owners were so scared because they felt responsible. I think that they were more scared than I was.

Anyway, all's well that end's well and I didn't lose her. So many things could have happened. Cars and broken legs are what were foremost in my mind. Saluki puppy legs are very fragile with their growth plates.

Well, that's all from me. As usual I just blab on. Here's a vote for you. Have a great week.

Come visit me, Eddie (In Loving Memory), Prince & Pippin (Gone too soon).
