About Me

Active within 1297 Days

I am from Papua New Guinea, Intl and I've been a Club Horse member for 3 years, 11 months and 7 days

Nicknames: Jazzi or Jaz for short.

Age: 15 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Arabian

Height: 14 hands. Kinda small, but an ok size for my 95 lb 5'4 female frame. :)

Color: Bright red bay with a small star on her forehead

Type of Riding: english, hunters, xcountry, bareback. I wish I could compete!

My Horse's Achievements: I've been training her to jump from basically scratch for the past 9 months, and recently she's been doing great at 2' 6, which is actually pretty good for a small horse. :)In free jumping she's cleared 4'2!!!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: bananas. yeah it's true. :D

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: She's a very ambitious horse! Rolling, following me around and hanging out with me, riding in the river, trail rides and ridge rides (that's when me and my friends take them galloping allover the mountains) She enjoys pretty much everything I do with her, but I think her all-time favorite is splashing in the river. It's pretty awesome. :D She's also learning to love jumping.

Pet Peeves: Invasion of her personal bubble at the wrong times.

My Horse's motto: I have ATTITUDE - so ya might wanna watch it!

How We Met

Until I was 13 years old, I was an american horseless horselover living in the U.S. When I was 12, my parents decided to become missionaries. We went all over the states to raise support, and spent a few months in West Virginia where my parents recieved training. I recieved a few month's worth of riding lessons for my 13th birthday which was the awesomest thing ever to me. My parents allocated to Papua New Guinea. It's a big island near australia. Throughout the time when we were raising support and recieving training, I hated the thought of leaving the states to go to a disgusting 3rdworld country where I knew there wouldn't be a chance of horses existing, plus I didn't want to leave my friends or my life. When we left for PNG in Jan. last year, I was heartbroken. After a few months more training in a town on the coast of Papua New Guinea, we came up to the Ukarumpa center where all the other missionary families live. And lo and behold, God had known what he was doing all along!! I was absolutely thrilled to discover that people here owned some horses at their own little stable. There were 16 horses there. I babysat horses for a few months for people going to their villages to work on Bible Translation. Then I met Jazzi. She was badly lame at the time and very grumpy because of it. Her owner was leaving for college soon and couldn't find anyone to buy her. Her parents were going to make her put Jazzi down. I couldn't watch this young, beautiful horse die, so I took a chance and bought her for all my money, 400 dollars last september. After a few months, her leg finally healed. I discovered that she actually had an awesome personality! She had a lot of problems under saddle -rearing was the worst- but I could tell she was really smart, and it didn't take long to break the habits. She's still not perfect, but she's a lot better now and I can get her to trot and canter calmly and we've started jumping cross country too. She's very spirited and loves to run. My other horsepeople friends and I love to take our horses galloping in the mountains, and the horses love it too. Jazzi always wins the races. :) I've now realized that God really does love me and he brought me to this country that I hate to give me my true dream horse.
(geez that was long!) haha

Thanks, Forest is a handsome boy. The difference between a buckskin and a dun is fairly simple a buckskin is a bay with a dilute gene, which only dilutes the base color. A dun is a bay with a dun gene which adds the dorsal stripe, leg stripes and ear barring and usually changes the color a bit. I am not the experienced with stallions and when I wanted Forest started I sent him to a trainer. He does have a really good temperment though and is really friendly. Whats it like to work with a stallion? Well I havn't done a whole lot with him and I won't start riding him until fall, but you just have to be more aware of things and you can't let a stallion get away with anything or they will totally take advantage of you.
I hope Jaz continues to heal from her abcess fast and you can do lots of riding. She sounds like a really sweet horse. Heres a vote.

Hey thanks for the comment and vote! Sorry I haven't been on in such a long time! I was at horse camp for a week. It was amaaaaazing=) The whole week I rode a gaited Tennessee walker named Midnight. I rode him all week last year too:) He was said to be the most difficult horse which was why I got him. Not like I'm any great rider or anything but some people there had hardly ridden at all! He really wasn't a bad horse at all he was super sweet:) he just didn't like people jerking in his mouth. He was extremely responsive to leg though. The first day I was there I hurt my foot. and I still rode and everything but a few days later I had to go to the er cuz it was puffy purple and i couldn't move my toes. And they said it was a severe sprain but because of the severity it was worse than a break cuz it would take longer to heal :/ So the whole week I rode stirupless even though I'm supposed to be on crutches for 3 weeks and not ride for a month and a half! But I have our big fair I'm supposed to be showing in less than 2 weeks! ahhhhhhhhhhh! The trails at camp were incredible! The more advanced riders in our group went on a 2 hr trail ride! It was gorgous! There were huge fields to run through, big rivers to cross and huge hills deep back in the hills:) There was one hill especially that was huge! It was all muddy and much steeper than a 50 degree angle! ha, as you can imagine that was fun stirupless! Ya know how horses will try to get momentum and run up the hill? well we were supposed to keep them at a trot and when I got to the top I was behind the camp counselor. She started freaking out cuz she 4got I was stirupless! ha it was kinda funny. One day was like a carnival day where we just played a buncha games with our horses. Midnight and I won every single one we were in! Egg and spoon was the first one which was interesting without stirrups. We got to a canter and that was about it lol. Another game that we played was a bob for apple race. Four horses line up at one end of the arena and race down to the other, do an emergency dismount (which was interesting one legged) take your helmet off, bob for an apple, get back on your horse and race back down (without touching the apple) another emergency dismount then take your horses bridle off and whoevers horse finishes the apple first wins! We have a buncha rounds (10) cuz there were so many ppl who wanted to play and if you come in 1st or 2nd you get to go to the next round. Midnight and I started in the first round and won every time lol. When I got home from camp I found an unexpected $127 vet bill......just what I needed. Aparently he was playing outside, knocked a board down and the nails were sticking up and he has a big nasty puncture right on his throatlatch...=( well I gtg. Hope you guys are doing well!

the rest of the message!!!!!-----------------------------
Now really not wanting him to get away with that I got back on and planned to work him until he was dripping sweat. He still wasn't behaving well so I put him on the lunge line and worked him and worked him. Then I got back on and just walked him wanting to end on a good note and not feeling at all like he was getting away with bucking. I really don't know what got into him. He has never done that before and it totally goes against his sweet gentle personality.

hey! How's Jasmine? What have you guys been working on? Yep I love owl city! And I board him at the place where I do 4h so all my friends keep their horses there too=) But my 4-h advisor and all the horses are actually moving in the fall! And I'm so excited cuz the new barn will be easily within 10 minutes of biking! And it's right across from these hugggggge trails! No jumping yet. but I've set up little jumps when I lunge and he has perfect form! And yeah he loves the trails as much as I do! What about you guys? Actually his canter has been getting a lit better! Giving him his head instead of trying to hold him back helps a lot because it seems like he's not trying to fight that pressure and just is more relaxed. Ditto did great at his show! I actually showed on Sunday but I took him up on western day (saturday) just 4 practice. On Sunday we had 3 classes we were entered in. Showmanship equitation and pleasure. He did fine in our riding classes even though we did not place. He was calm and focused on what I was asking him to do so for the 2nd show of his life I was very proud! In equitation (since his canter is so speedy) we had to take the inside to pass slower horses on the rail. And we were going past one (who didn't have a red ribbon or anything) who swirved right into where we were going and tried to kick poor Ditto. Well go got scared and started bucking but I got him under control and we kept going. The same horse was in our pleasure class and Ditto was just so nervous I took him to the middle of the ring. Which was fine and I expected that at only his 2nd show! What I didn't expect was how he did in showmanship! There were only six horses so I thought to myself yay! this means I get a ribbon! and green (6th place) will look great on him! So we did our pattern and he was great remembering everything we had been working on. We were all lined up and I we didn't get 6th! and I thought 5th really? and told Ditto what a good boy he was. But sure enough it went all the way up and we had gotten first. He was scared of the ribbon =) he's never had one b4! That was so nice cuz when he came he didn't know any showmanship! So he's actually been learning from what I've been teaching him! Not that I did anything great just given him love and time! We had a good but kinda hard lesson last night. Worked on not cutting corners or popping his shoulder while cantering. which is not easy on a horse like him who's just learning! Poor guys he worked so hard. He definitely deserved his nice rinse off when we were done. Then I got to ride again this morning. We had to go in the indoor because it was so muddy. he has been ridden in there but not for a while. When he was warmed up I asked him to canter and he started bucking which he had never done b4. not wanting him to get away with that I backed him and took him in little circles. I asked again but again he bucked except this time I fell off. My first fall on him. Now really not wanting him to get away with t

heyy! heck yes arabians all the way! =) and thanks for the great blog! Soooo helpful! Yeah I think he's definitely ready to start canter work. We have done so much at the walk and trot and it definitely has helped prepare us for the canter! Yeah I've done some parelli but I don't have any of their dvds cause they're so expensive. I do have a few of Stacy Westfalls dvds which are extremely helpful! Yes I would also say he is for sure right brained. All of what we did the first few months was ground work and building a relationship and trust in each other and we still do quite a bit of ground work. Especially in the round pen. He is never so fast that I am unable to control him because he'll go right down to a trot as soon as I ask but I think he gets so excited and it might be a balance thing too. He has an extremely soft mouth so I use a D ring french snaffle. Like a regular snaffle but with 3 parts instead of 2. If I could do all his training in a halter I would but since I show that's not an option. My biggest problem when I circle him at the canter is he pops his shoulder out. So I try to give him light steady pressure on the inside rein and check and release with the outside so he can't just turn his head. But since he has such a sensitive mouth it's hard to do without being too hard on his mouth. So I have been practicing trotting circles without popping his shoulder which he has down. He is actually lame right now but it's just a bruised frog. So I will be putting front shoes on him in a couple days and he should be fine. thanks again for the help!

hey! Welcome to horsechannel! Any questions? Your horse is BEAUTIFUL! Wow, so pretty. I absolutly loved your story! It's so cool how God always has a plan for our lives! Do you do a lot of showing? 6 months ago, after four years of babysitting, I bought my first horse! He hadn't been abused just more of neglected. All he knew was if I kick him really hard he should run and if I pull back really hard on the reins he should stop. He's a 10 year old arabian gelding. He's got such a sweet gentle personality. And he loves to learn! For the first 3 months everything I did with him was groundwork. From free lunging in the round pen, to showmanship, to ground driving. And I'm so glad I did! Building a relationship though groundwork with him has taught us both so much! Before I got him he had never been fed a treat from you hand, never been bathed, never clipped never shown and he's done all of that now! A few weeks ago I took him to his first show! I ride english and was in an equitation over poles class, a showmanship class and a trail class. We came dead last in showmanship =) which was ok cause he doesn't know how to pivot. But my main goal was just to get him out in the ring and used to being at shows without freaking out. He did so much better than I expected! Even when I was riding him he was calm and focused on what I was asking him to do! And the weather was awful! Soooo windy and cold and rainy! It was even hailing for a while! In our trail class we were doing our extended trot to the mailbow and when we were up right next to it, it blew over! It just about hit him on the butt and he kinda freaked and we almost took out the judge! lol =) It was kinda funny. And I got it on tape! Sorry this blog is so long! But I have a quick training question and I was wondering if you had any tips. His canter is very fast unbalanced and uncollected. I can't get him to slow down without breaking. Someone told me to do lots of circles and that'ss slow him down. But I can't make a circle at that almost hand gallop. I took him in a smaller arena where he's forced to go in a somewhat small circle. He slows down and collects nicely but I'm afraid when I get back in the big arena he'll speed up again. He'll trot or walk as soon as I ask him to I think he just gets excited. Any tips? Thanks a ton!
