How We Met

Baron: a person e-mailed me about one of the kids' that takes lessons from her horse... it wasent right for me so she said her friends had a horse named Baron and he was rescued from a home where the owners wanted him to do grand prixs and so they poled him... I saw him today (the 28th) and he will go to the person who told me about him's jumping and lesson barn where i will ride him sevral times a week and decide in about 2 weeks weather i want him or not...
OTHER HORSES: i was looking for a place to board my new horse before i got one... i found a great barn pretty close with an indoor arena and plenty of jumps in and outside... the owner of the farm asked me if i had a horse yet and i said no... her friend down the street is giving away a ton of her young jumper trained WBs TBs and Paints... i will see them wed the 2nd or shortly after...

which ever horse is the best match I will get...LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK!

my dog, brandy a shepherd mix!
thanks for the blog on peek's page. i'm keeping busy. i sacked out peekaboo with scary plastic bags filled with cans and put broomsticks along her sides like the pvc pipe. she did good. got 20 bales of hay unloaded. rode buttercup around bareback at walk only. practiced closing the gate and side pass. had a long skype call with my son, michael, who's in baghdad in the army. put a recent pic of brandy on peek's page cause someone wanted to see her. hope you enjoy the long holiday week end!

feeling less sick but broken hearted today. i took my 12 yr old shep mix, brandy, to be put to sleep yesterday. this past year she's been declining. arthritic joints left her with only 2 good legs. she had to stop coming upstairs to bed with us. i made her a nice doggie bed neath the table where she liked to sleep but she insisted on sleeping at the bottom of the stair where she'd be closest to us. yesterday she could no longer walk and kept falling down. looking confused and embarrassed. i miss her tail drumming out a beat against the floor or wall as i'd walk by. she didn't ask for much and was so grateful for a kindness expressed toward her. like all dogs are. i miss her terribly this day 1 in a world without brandy.

i like baron's pics!
here's saturday vote. i liked jockeys last night. when "well armed" won in dubai it was very exciting! i can't decide who my fave is. i like the storyline with chantal, mike smith's girlfriend, and the girl trainer working with "bullybullybully", who they think is a "superhorse". hope to see more of that. i rode sing today. jsut walking and teaaching my lessons off her. she's still off alittle bit from some prob with sore hooves or something.

hi
yes, peach is a haflinger and no i didn't smack her when she was bucking cause i was trying to stay on. normally i do with a saddle on. she doesn't buck then. she's a sluggard and i had to use a crop all through her beginning training to get her to move forward. now i don't need the crop on her, usually. i took my flip flop off and smacked her with it to try to get her to trot at first and she began spinning and rearing. it's all real slow though. other wise i couldn't have stayed with her. i did fall off once but got her to stop finally and walk 20 ft and we agreed that was a compromise. baron looks really good in his photos. i like him. he looks like he's moving good. how do you like him? are you buying him?

hi
finally someone who watches jockeys!! did u see it? were you worried about bully being claimed? i know i was. i like all the little trivia they throw out, like, "what's the most amount in prize money any jockey has ever won in one day" and the answer is 6 million by mike smith, if i'm rmembering correctly. i had no idea they could win that much in one day of racing.

Hi! Sorry it's been so long since I got back to you! We just got back from a week of vacation! Right before that I had my show! It went sooooo well! We got to the show at seven cause lots of the horses (not Crystal) need time to get used to their surroundings. We didn't have any classes until like 2 so we waited to bathe and clip until we got there. When we got there (even though I was half asleep) I longed her but she was great. Then once it warned up a little we clipped and then bathed. Once again she was great. Our first class was showmanship. Our pattern was super easy though! Walk to cone A. Trot to cone B. Back up four steps and then set up for inspection. We got 2nd place! Next class was pleasure. We got 4th which was really suprising cause Crystal is not very good at pleasure. Our last class was equitation. We got first!!!!!!!!!!! So we placed in all of our classes! We were at the show for 14 hours though! I was really tired but instead of going home we went straight to vacation! It was great too. Today we went to the barn! Crystal was great! I made up a horse treat recipe that she really liked. Oh yeah, while I was at my show the judge came up to me and said that if I can get her to set her head she will be THE PERFECT HORSE!!! That's what the judge said! So today we worked with a martingale. We also worked on cantering! Sometimes she kinda tries to run away with me so we put ground poles splitting the arena in half. I also cantered in two-point so I wasn't bouncing on her back which also seemed to help. I got a movie of her and it's really cool. Next month is the last month of my lease but I want to talk to the owners of Crystal to talk about another six months of lease. Honestly, I can't imagine my life without Crystal. I hate thinking about September! P.S. Who is that horse and rider in the picture at the bottom of your page?

Hey!
Hey! What's up? Have you been riding lately? I have! I just got back from my lesson on Crystal! It was great! We did a lot with her her headset and keeping on the rail and bending at turns. She knows how to do it you just have to push the right buttons. You really have to feel her mouth so it's uncomfortable for her if she doesn't bend her head. Then to get her on the rail you have to pull on your inside rein which is like telling her to turn away from the fence while you hold her head with your outside rein so she doesn't turn and you have to keep your leg on her so she doesn't stop with all of this pulling and you really really have to keep your inside leg on her so she stays on the fence. Now, if you can remember all of that and then actually aply it she's gorgous!!! We also worked on cantering! If we use the whole ring Crystal tries to run away with me so we only used half. She has a smooth rocking but fast canter. She always takes the right lead but it's fast. We worked on slowing her down. Sometimes part of the reason she speeds up is because I bump in the saddle so I cantered in two-point so I wouldn't bounce, which also seemed to help. So I guess it is my fault. If I think about what I'm doing with my position and everything she does exactly what I tell her to do. We worked her so hard so we had to rinse her off afterwords. When I got home after I took off my breeches I felt something cold trickle down my leg. I looked down and there was a big nasty cut right behind my knee. I have no idea how I got it, but whenever I straighten it (you know, like walk?) it starts bleeding again. I tried to wash it, but it just started bleeding more. It started going down my leg and then my foot. So I tried wrapping it in this gauze stuff. Yeah, it's pretty nasty.

Wow! Congrats! I am sooo happy 4 u!!!!! That is SOOOO exciting! here are two things I do if I don't have someone watching me that knows a lot about horses. 1.) If you have a camera that can make movies or a video camera you could have whoever is watching you film it. 2.) When I'm riding I just go through the things that people have been telling me since I first started to ride, you know eyes up, heels down, sit up straight etc.I am supposed to have a riding lesson tomorrow but I might have to miss it. I have a fever but I'm almost better. I haven't been sick in two years and I always recover really fast. I am almost over the fever, but I still have a bad headache all the time and I haven't eaten anything in 3 days. Well I hope you're doing well with Baron!

thanks for listening to my advice!! Hope you find a horse just right for you. and remember before you buy him take him to a pre-purchase check up to make sure you know for sure that he will be a sound horse and that nothing bad will happen

hmmm, $2000? From everything you have told me he sounds like a great horsee, but could use some twerking. I would write down all of the things that don't quite make him worth 2000 (you know skinny, scars, hasn't been ridden in 9 months) and then write down all of the good qualities. I would read them over and over and decide if he's worth it. You might wanna see if they will take 1500

As you can pry tell, i'm not the biggest TB/WB rider. Im all for QH's so I would say find a horse that fits your personality. Horses that are mistreated, usually end up mistreating you. He is beautiful, but ride him a bit more and see if he is something you would really like. also be careful that you don't buy a horse too experienced for you. I've done that before and I was never able to ride him without it being a huge fight. With him being a stallion i would suggest a different horse. Stallions are pretty, but hard to handle. I know that because I have a ton. Just take these into mind. If you are not experienced with stallions, i suggest a gelding or mare. or to geld him if you get him.
