About Me

Active within 1740 Days

I am from Missoula, MT and I've been a Club Horse member for 4 years, 9 months and 11 days

Nicknames: Sweet Adeline (her show name) aka Addie is a ISH (Irish Sport Horse) mare by Dry Creek Macka RIDSH. We hope to soon register her as a RIDSH like her sire, but have yet to come up with a registered name.

Age: 11 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed:

Height: aprox. 16.2-3hh

Color: Chestnut with light points, with gray in her mane and tail.

Type of Riding: Eventing (english), so we jump cross country, stadium jumping, and do dressage. I would like to take her 1st level this year in dressage as well. We also love to trail ride!

My Horse's Achievements: I recently purchased Addie on Feb. 21 of this year and I hope to start her over jumps and compete in Eventing with her.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Anything:cookie- s, pellets, grain, apples, carrots, peppermints, banana flavored treats, she loves them all.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat and "work"

Pet Peeves: Other mares that try to push her around.

My Horse's motto: When life gives you treats, eat 'em!

How We Met

After I lost my horse, Dover, to cancer in November, I was looking for a young horse to start over fences and take up the levels of Eventing. So my trainer was keeping her ears open for me, and heard that Addie was for sale. My trainer already knew Addie from a few years ago, because her husband backed and trained her as a 4 year old. Addie's previous owner's daughter was in Pony Club, and is now in college so she needed to downsize. Since Addie is such a big girl she needs a taller rider to get her to move properly. I met them both in Feb and it we bonded immediately. I started her over fences the weekend I tried her out and we have been together ever since..

A Saturday Vote, oh yeah!
Friday afternoon after my sinus meds let lose of my brain i adventured myself outside about 5:30pm to clean up and feed Fancy. Well it was so nice outside I started grooming her while i let her graze in the backyard. I decided to saddle her and do some ground work and i wanted to sit on her again. So I went to back porch to get my shoes. Fancy stood at the gate until I got back. Since I wasn't sure I still had her attention i got the whip and desensitized her to it and lounged her left and right to make sure she was ready to listen. This only took about 5 times and she showed me she was ready. I stood in the stirrups on each side one at a time and leaned over rubbing her neck and side. Then i tapped her hind end to desensitize her to my foot hitting her and I tapped the saddle all over to. And I mounted and dismounted a few times on each side. I figured since she is very forward I would just sit there until she started to walk. I rocked the saddle a few times to let her know that i move too. Then I waited. And she did walk. I let her walk until she stopped. Then I dismounted and she gave me a horsey neck hug and I hugged her back and gave her tons of rubs and horsey nose kisses because I was so happy. Then I let her eat some more grass. I know this isn't much but for me with her it is. Because she is plenty ready and big enough to carry me as long as i don't gain a lot of weight any time soon,LOL. I am just taking it slow like we have done so much already, i go about it like we are just having fun together and it seems to work with her. I pray she continues to be so good for me. She is not perfect but i can work with her and we somehow being blessed get it done!

Heres a daily vote from Hollywood. I got to have a nice sleep-over last night with my bestest friend. We didn't go to bed till 2 a.m. We bugged her brother, Cory, and both of the Eddies with annoying sounds (they were being really loud so we couldn't get to sleep....Pay Back Time...) Hazelle and I are great friends. We've been friends for about 8 or 9 years now.

It was a beautiful day yesturday and all week, this morning was raining, but now it is beautiful outside. I love sunny days, it makes me think of all of the speical friends/horses here on Horsechannel.com. Thanks you so much for your wonderful and kind blogs and votes! Speical thanks to Navajo for Hollywood's 900th vote. Please help Quincy reach his goal, he is kind fallin back on his votes, thanks. Hope you Sunday went great! Love, Erin&ThePaints

Saturday vote delivery by Fancy is here. Friday evening I seemed to coax my husband to let me use him,lol. I lead Fancy around with him on her back in my small saddle,lol. Fancy was great. She flinched a little when he dismounted. That is ok, because she didn't move her feet and I will work on that when I get on her. Now I plan to teach her a go forward cue with the stirrups. Because if you don't lead her she will just stand there;)
Go out and enjoy this day!
