My Horse Profile

Thoroughbred from lexington, KY

Roland

About Me

Active within 1744 Days

I am from lexington, KY and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 10 months and 12 days

Nicknames: We just call him Roland, but we're trying to think of a good show name for him so if you have any ideas let us know!! (and it doesnt have to have anything to do with the name Roland either)

Age: 13 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Thoroughbred

Height: 16.3hh.

Color: dark bay

Type of Riding: soon to be a mini prix jumper with my dad! but he can jump 5'3 with no problem!

My Horse's Achievements: Well we've only had him for a week, so when he accomplishes something i'll be sure to let you know! haha

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Well i've fed him a cheeto, a goldfish (the cheese cracker thingys, not an actual goldfish! haha) and a cheez-it, so i would say this horse loves cheese! lol

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: run, jump, flirt with the girls, and show off! haha

Pet Peeves: I've noticed he really hates to his bits changed (he came with a 3 ring, and we changed him to a pelham, and he hated it! and then we changed again and it flipped him out, so we just went back to a 3 ring) lol

How We Met

My dad used to compete at a really big level and show all the time, but after he got married and had me and my sister he was kind of forced to stop showing to take care of us. but now that we're older he wants to start showing again. but his old show horse tommy is 24 years old and has a touch of athritis, so he cant show him! So i've been looking for him a new horse, and i recently found Roland through a friend who says hes a level headed calm grand prix horse, not the crazy overly hot horses you tend to get when you get up that high! So we brought to our place for 2 weeks for my dad to ride and he loved him! We ended up getting him, and hopefully soon they'll be showing!!

The pics at the bottom are of me and Roland, but hopefully soon i'll get some pics of him and my dad jumping!

Good evening!
Hi guys i just thought since i have some extra time i might tell you about my weekend! Sound good? OK here it goes. Saterday was the beginning, i got up at 7:00 to go and feed. It was like 0 degrees out and i was frozen. I came inside and got warmed up by the fire and then i got ready for the day. After i was done with all this it was about 9:00 and i had a lesson at 9:30. I got bundled up in, 2pairs of pants, 2 pairs of socks, long sleve shirt, english boots, and 2 coats. We went outside and i got sonador all saddled and ready for my lesson. Kala (my instructor) came and i dismounted and handed her her check for the lesson and her christmas gift. She said thanks and we started the lesson. Last week we worked on my eq, and a little jumping. Now that i had my lower leg solid she said she thinks it is OK to start to jump higher. (last week the last like 20 mins we had a quick jumping lesson at 6 inches. sonador did fine with this, even though she had never jumped before.) So we got out our 1 foot jumps and started with that after we worked on suppleing and such. First attempt at the jumps we walked over them lol. Second attempt we trotted over them. (and i mean literally sonador did not jump them when she was trotting she just trotted right over them picking her legs up high, i mean she is a 16.1 horse so she can do this pretty easily. lol) So the third attempt kala had me trot her and like a foot before we jumped we qued for a canter, and this time she jumped! I must have looked so funny cuz she jumped like 2 feet higher than i was expecting her to so when i came down i was just laughing and i looked over to my mom who had not seen me jump yet because she was gone at my last lesson, and she looked like she was about ready to have a heart attack. It was so funny. The 4th attempt we did it beautifully and sonador looked so pretty my mom said. we did this about 6 more times and 2 of those turned out really good and 4 of them turned out ok. It was so fun though, if you do english you have not had a ride of your life until you do jumping, i mean it feels like you are flying!

Next that night Nebraska corn huskers (go huskers!) had a football game, last one of the season and it was the big 12 champs. (anyone watch this?) We were playing texas longhorns. They were ranked 3rd and we were ranked 23rd. Amazing that we even made it to the champs! So the game was going great huskers were winning until the very last 20 seconds. It all started we had a bad punt and it went out of bounds. So that gave them a advantage, then we had a player hoarse collar another player trying to tackle them and we got a pentalty, so that helped them, and then in the very last second they were close enough to make a feild goal and they made it winning the game by 1, and this was at the last second of the game. Imagine the heartbreak of nebraska! tough tough game (sigh)

Sierra and sonador just trotted by with a vote!!!!!!!!

So how is everyone?? Things are good here, it's been really rainy, but when I have ben able to ride Gypsee has been AH-MAZING for me. like as good as she's EVER been. she finally figured out how to go round and now does it like all the time going 'look at me, I figured it out see!!!' it's so cute. I love her so much. we've been working on cantering too, she's been soo good and hasn't gone fast at all on me!!!! I'm going to try to ride later today if I'm feeling up to it. still not feeling the best, everyone here is sick. like at schools and activities about half of everyone is missing or sick. it's horible!! how are your horses?

is it aerosmith that has the classic rock song "dream on"? i can hum it but not sure who does it. it's nice to have a stay at home mom. too bad she doesn't ride anymore. i quit for many years while i worked and had other obligations. started again in my 40's. soooo glad i did. it's a great outlet for me. have a good ride today. i worked over a gymnastic, trot poles to an X. trying to get my horses jumping a bit. it WILL cool off here one day and we can ride more aggressively. i want them to be fit since they haven't jumped since may!

Haha, what a story! I have never fell off of my horses bareback..well I guess I am lying, I have once. Ferina spooked one time and I wasn't paying attention and I fell. Hehe. I hit my head really hard on the ground, and thankfully I was wearing a helmet! I don't wear a helmet anymore, but I really need to be I'm sure! Thanks so much for the nice comment on Ferina's pictures! Well that is GREAT that he went through his surgery good. Maybe he will be okay, even if he can't be rode=) Will say another prayer for him tonight, and please keep me updated on him=) It must be really cool to get to exercise race horses every now and then!!! That sounds like so much fun! I would love to go and watch a horse race someday. Well here is a vote for Roland, hope to hear from you soon!!! =) Chandler, the girls, and Izzy=)

Vote for ROLAND"s mending from Petite Fleur
I hate horse racing and not afraid to admit it! I love my real deal sweet paint horse who is not on anyu drug but wormers and biotin vitamins for her hooves (she never wears shoes!) She has been shoeless for over 18 months and between me & the farrier we do regular trims and treatments. mY PRAYERS ARE WITH ROLAND and what a horrible experience for you to have to endure!

i'm a friend of ruth ann and she sent the email about your friend's race horse. how sad. praying that he'll pull through. i hear stories of some of those career ending injuries that improve after a few years and the horse can be ridden again. please keep us updated on his progress. my mare, sing, is an OTT thor. she's 15 now. i just put some pics of all my horses at the bottom of peek's page cause some friend's wanted to see who i'm talking about when i say i've ridden. i don't want more than one HC page! too much blogging to keep up with. hope to see some jumping pics with your dad soon. roland is a beauty. i'll throw out some names, feel free to laugh or reject them. :) "zero gravity", "warbird", "sky's the limit", okay i'll stop now. lol. trying to think of flying things for a jumper.

Hey, sorry I havn't been on in a while, school keeps me busy. So what happened to your other horses? How's work and your students going? just rode Sundance for the first time in a week today, because last monday he was lame due to a misplaced nail after being shod just a few days earlier. But he's all better now, just waiting for the shoe to be relaced. Anything new happening, any shows recently?

Hi Roland
That's awesome!!! it all sounds like a great plan to me!! yeah I can't wait he comes tomorrow! :) umm well our vet will be looking after him and running all sorts of tests and stuff to try and figure it out, she's thinking navicular right now though. hopefully we'll be able to get him fixed up!! That is awesome!!!!!!! :) do you have any pics of the horse you are thinking of buying from your dad? that would be awesome and I hope it all works out for you!! haha yeah I don't know how you can jump that high all the time!!! Gypsee and I are working on jumping high, but the highest I've ever jumped was 2'9" on Frost, and I don't think I'd like to go much higher! but I ride ponys :P I've been riding Gypsee a lot lately and omg she's being sooooooo good for me!!! She is rounding herself up whenever I ask and I jumped her today and we jumped oxers and lines, and courses, and we jumped 2'2" which is the highest Gypsee's ever jumped with someone on her back! :) and she did so well, the first time she ran out on me, 'cause I was a little nervous and was looking down 'cause there was one of our barn kittens underneath it and I was looking at him and the second time we tried I just steered her straight in used my leg and looked up and she jumped it no problem :) we've also been working on our cantering and she's being sooo great at that now! :) I'm so happy with her!!! Who have you been riding lately? how is roland doing? do you teach lessons too? I miss getting on here and talking to you :( I gotta go now though, hopefully I'll try to get on again when I can don't know when that will be though! hopefully soon! Leaving a vote of course! :)

Hi Roland
I know what you mean about profiles getting too much! I had to join my cat channel accounts all together we have a TON of cats, and 10 profiles were a little much :P LOL! That sounds like loads of fun!!!! yeah we live way out in the middle of no where too and can go on the roads :) my sister does, but I don't like too, it's to scary :P lol, I like riding in the arena it gives me confidence :P Roland sounds like he's doing sooo awesome! :D you must be soo happy that you guys got him!
Sorry I wasn't on yesterday! and I have lots of news!! Good news and bad news... the good news is that we are going to be boarding a horse at our place!! our friend used to have a horse sancuary and she ran it for a long time, and then got a divorce and everything so she had to close it, but this person gave her a horse that is lame that might have navicular and everything and she couldn't say no, but she has no place to keep it, so we are boarding it for her, but she lives really far away so our vet is going to be looking after him for her all the time! I know it's really confuzing, but she needed a place to keep him, and we have a lot of experience with navicular and lame horses thanks to my sister horse Belle who was lame for like 2 years and we went through a LOT with her and we are really good friends with the vet, so it'll be so nice to have a vet around the barn and everything. and if she can get him (I don't know much about him only that he's a 17 year old bay gelding) sound then he can start being ridden, and she's to big for him or too heavy or something but she said that if he gets sounds then my sister and I can ride him whenever we want! he's going to be boarded here for a couple monthes and she doesn't know what's going to happen after that. so that's really exciting! but the bad news is, that with the new horse coming and everything I won't have time to get on HC very much at all! I'll try to get on AT LEAST a couple times a week, and I have lots of time normally on tuesdays so almost all tuesdays I'll be on, but I can't say if I'll be on more then once or twice a week! SORRY! We miss talking to ALL of you and WISH that we had more time, but we are SWAMPED with everything that needs to be done now!
:( I promise to try to get on when I can, if you want you can contact me by E-mail I'll try to check that it's oatisrocks@yahoo.ca :) Leaving a vote of course :)

Hi
lol :P okay I thought it was probably the same horse!! I changed Gypsee's name when we got her too. her old name was Extra. I mean who calls a horse extra? it sounded like a sad name to me espacilly with what she'd been through so I decided to change it. I wish I had thought of something more original but I had to chose quickly so that the people at the barn we boarded at would know what to call her lol. but it suits her and she likes it :) that would have been so neat riding a pony that little then riding Cooper :) I'd like to try that some day. :P hehe. I LOOOOOVE little tiny ponies. the littler the better!! you are right they are way faster and they are normally bumpier, but if you fall it's not very far to the ground! plus it's easier to mount :) WOW that would be so cool to have that much space!!! we only have an outdoor ring so we can't ride when it's raining or in the winter or whatever. and it's not that big, (well it's big enough for a little course, but not a huge one or anything) but it's only my sister and me who ride in it so it works :) How is Cooper doing? and Roland have you ridden him again? anyways here's a vote for you :)
