We had a nice weekend and hope you all did as well. Lizzy came over Saturday and rode Rocket and then she gave him the full grooming experience and I did the same with Whiskey. I had a 30 minute short workout for Deacon on Sunday morning then went to Tractor Supply for feed and the grocery store. Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Thanks for stopping by Shadowfax's page. Your horse is beautiful! She could play Shadowfax.

Actually, they used several horses to play Shadowfax in the movies. 2 main ones and then one or two others with specific talents/tricks.

Nice to meet you, please drop by
Good Morning everyone,Hi Hope, thanks for the compliment on my Sterly Girly, she does look good, she is a very special horse, she will be 31 in April and still going strong, altho she is retired, she has Charlie to help keep her young and moving.. Thanks again for all the prayers and well wishes, we appreciate the support. Trevor has finished week 5 of 7, 2 more weeks of grueling treatments. This is really getting him down, food has become impossible, he is trying to come to terms with the necessity of the feeding tube, he has lost weight and has no energy and is in a lot of pain. I think when he sees his team on Monday they will help him decide. It is really hard to watch my two favorite men struggle like this. As for me and the horses, we are desperate for spring. We have had a bit of a warm up and a day of rain, so you can't even imagine the mess here, flooding, yes my barn, then it turned very cold and extreme wind, it is treacherous out there, I'm serious, it is a real task just to get to the barn. Yesterday morning for my 3AM feeding, all the barn doors were frozen shut, I could not get in. David had to pry and chop and dig his way in to feed the guys. I'm done with winter, have I ever mentioned that I really hate winter? this year has been a real challenge. Have a great weekend, know we are thinking about you, Love Donna Lee & family

Now is the best part of the year when school comes to an end and horse shows kick it into full gear!!

Since we did so well in our province we are trying to qualify for the Saskatchewan Summer Games in Dressage!! It is a big job but we hope we make the team!!! Now we are riding twice/three times a week to train hard for the Summer Games and the upcoming filled summer of horse shows!! So wish us luck and we hope we do well!!

Pixie Dust for HOTM #101958
this is susan & the herd blogging for our angel crew today. we hope you're all voting for our darling shetland angel pony.
everything about joanna has pretty much been said. she was a selfless woman who used her computer to empower herself. when i heard that she died, i went to facebook to find her last comment. wouldn't you know, it was helpful advice to others who had so many complaints about the changes that were recently made on FB. her last entry was "how to get your feedback to normal again." she broke it down in step by step explanation. she had grateful thanks from 3 others telling her they sppreciated it. she's a real example of the expression, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
thank you for the HOTD for scooter, the driving pony. we had a blast at the clinic. about 8 people turned up. we'll have another next month. she's doing a series of 4 basic driving lessons.

Who was Joanna Wicke? It's not easy to describe such a beautiful lady. Joanna, who was only 34, was one of our special friends on HC who was always there with love, support, encouragement and a daily vote for each of us. She was easy to love and gave us love in return. She never let on to any of us that she was sick. When she passed away September 23, 2011, we were all shocked and heart broken. Her sweet Pixie Dust followed her to Heaven on February 27, 2012. We would like to honor the memory of Joanna and Pixie Dust with May HOTM. Please vote each day for Pixie Dust and ask your friends on HC to please do the same. A heartfelt thanks. Hugs and a vote.

i had fun after work tonight. i worked with peach, then buttercup. i was calling them, "queen peach cobbler" & "the duchess of buttercup". i polished their hooves with some pine tar mix i made up since they're getting dry and cracked. :/ i sprayed them down with insect repellent and the stalls, too. the mosquitoes are getting bad. it really helped me unwind after work.
sounds like hope did good trotting over the pole. i hope the weather clears up for you soon.

For Horse Of The Day, you don't really sign up. You win HOTD by having the most votes for your horse in one day. To get votes, visit as many other people's horse blogs as possible, vote for them, and ask for votes in return. It also helps to say something about their horse, you know, to make friends. Good luck!

I ride a horse that's 22! Captain, please go visit his page and leave a vote. That's not too good if your horse is getting bad arthritis. Captain is 22, and he has been shown all his life, so he doesn't have very bad arthritis thankfully. If he is stiff and is tripping a lot, then I recommend getting some joint and health supplements. I=As long as it's not too much for your horse, then I think you should basically be able to do anything with them

another riding day for me! i rode sing at walk, trot & canter and worked in 2 pt position some. also practiced halting and moving forward off my leg. she's a big sluggish so i want to keep her fine tuned. :)

she should be able to trot over a one foot high jump with no problems but not in your uneven pasture. you want a nice flat area with decent footing. first try walking and trotting over a ground pole before you jump. has she ever jumped before? alot of trail horses have to jump over logs on the path. camp horses sometimes jump for games. it would be easier if she's done it before.

cantering by with a saturday vote! had a busy day and i'm off for "game" night with friends. not sure what we're going to play but i like to play. no cards, though. not so good at those games. :)
the best thing for arthritis is to keep them moving. gentle riding will keep the joints supple. i have 3 old horses that have stiffness from arthritis. they can still give a nice ride just don't plan on fast take offs, stops or jumping more than a foot. i have videos of my lesson riders practicing walking in the 2 pt or trotting in 2 pt. i don't know if it would help you to watch them. i have quite a few videos on here. do you ever watch HC vids? you can get lots of ideas. i also have a website that links to youtube and FB where you can see what my lesson riders do to practice. hope that helps.

all purpose saddles are fine. i have a synthetic kincade.
i would suggest you practice riding in 2 point (standing in stirrups), use the mane to hang onto at first if you have trouble keeping yourself out of the saddle and riding without stirrups at walk and trot. you can practice posting (if yu don't already know how) at the walk and then the trot. i fyou go to the training section on HC you can scan the different articles on english riding and find info.

it's rodeo time in houston so today i dusted off my stetson, put my chaps on and rode sing in my aussie saddle. trying to play cowboy is fun sometimes! i took a few pics and a video. we played a version of flag race except we used a riding crop and carried it from point "a" to point "b".

No problem:)

Well, I never got to lounge Mav yesterday. At about noon, it started snowing. And it was windy. The snow was wet, so the horse's backs were soaking, and the wind was driving the wetness into their skin while the icy-wet needles of snow stabbed them. Litteraly. Dandy and Zelda, (my Aunt's horse) had some shelter; they could get out of the wind and the majority of the snow. Dandy wasn't shivering, so I didn't blanket him. Dandy is a trooper, and I knew he'd be alright if he had shelter. So, I found a place for him where it was sheltered - 80% and then gave him TONS of hay. (So that he could munch all night and produce heat for his body all night long.) Zelda was pretty comfy when I left, too. Now, Mav and Charlie have absoultly NO protection from ANYTHING. They are exposed the the bare elements. Despite their diet, I gave them aplenty. Then they too, could munch for a couple hours.
So, this is after the storm, and this morning, all of the horses were fine. Dandy wasn't CLOSE to shivering. Good.
So, I'm hoping to lounge today. Oh, and btw, we got 6 more inches of snow. That all adds up to 3 feet. I can't wait for spring!!!

it sounds like with the uneven footing you're limited in what you can do. please don't ride out with the loose horses! they can get to playing and cause your horse to buck or run. you can get hurt much easier if you're in the middle of loose horses.
riding english does require better balance since you have a more shallow seat in the saddle. you hold the same basic position though just a shorter stirrup. i had to ride out on the road when i first got sing due to bad footing in the pasture. not a good idea either, though i was on country roads. is there anyway you can get fill dirt in to cover the holes? that 's what you need, if only in a spot big enough for a round pen.

i'll give you some ideas. don't know if you ride in arena, pasture or down the road though. i ride in arena and pasture. if you have cones or buckets to circle around that helps too. here are ideas without any supplies.
mix it up with your rides. don't always walk, trot canter, etc. sometimes i do only walking and halting, backing, and relaxing. other times i do conditioning timed rides (trot 15 minutes, canter 5 minutes). you can practice your position by riding in 2 point or without stirrups. you can practice figures like serpentines, figure 8's, clover leaf, etc, at walk, trot then canter. if you don't have an arena you can use landmarks like trees, fence posts, etc to designate where you will turn or make changes. you can also use old buckets or milk jugs to mark off an area. i play games, too. stand and face the arena wall, then turn and race to the opposite end. try shortening or lengthening your stride. on first try you might canter 18 strides down to the end, next time try to shorten and canter 20 strides, then next lengthen and canter 16. same with trot strides. pole work helps stretch them over topline so that's good if you have poles. my one old horse has such short strides in the back that he steps on the pole with his hind so i don't do that with him. hope this gives you some ideas. i have tons more! lol.
who is the horse with the blaze in your pics on the bottom?
