third chance...
I'm doing fine. Hope your finger is better.
I am going to give Niko another chance... Hope he doesn't really hurt me this time... meaning worse than before. It will be a few weeks before my riding buddy comes home from Spain... so it won't be anytime soon.
I think I will do some more Parelli w/him between now and then.

Hope all is well with you.

A westernaire is a member of an organization of precision mounted drill teams...go to www.westernaires.org to find out more.

You asked what else Curtiss and I do: I've ridden him bareback once or twice, and he did pretty well. I was a little nervous, because he's still a tad skittish, but he did awesome. I'm teaching him to respond to simple voice commands, and after a little over a month of work (about twice a week), he's getting them. I tried poles with him once, and once he decided that they weren't going to eat him, he did really well. I'm planning on trying that again sometime soon.

And yes, Summer was horse of the day once, about the second day I signed up.

Come visit me, Summer, Curtiss & Teton.

Second or third chance.
Well, I understand where you are coming from, but he isn't trail broke and I need another horse to pony him from until I can break him. I have been seriously hurt on him another time before this that I am still suffering from with damaged nerves and shoulder. I don't want to sell him, but if someone wants to buy him at the show... I may let him go. It's going to break my heart and his too. I am very torn.

Niko's ride... disaster
Well I guess I needed the luck you forgot to give because the ride was a disaster. The people I board with, thought I should use a bit and I tried it. He hated it. I was smart enough to bring his hackamore with me so I changed it out after about a quarter mile. He was doing fine after that until we reached a construction site just about another quarter mile up the trail that was marked off with 3 ft. stakes that had little 1" x 5" orange flags stapled to the tops... He was doing great following the horse in front of him and made it half way between two of the stakes then backed up. I attempted to get him to go between them again, and he got half way again then backed up. I then attempted to get him to go around them into the street and he refused. I ended up trying to back him through them and one of the stakes went between his hind legs and he started bucking and rearing like crazy. Usually that wouldn't be a problem but I wasn't using my own saddle and it was new and too big so it slipped out after a few bucking broncos... I landed on my right hip and literally lost my bladder... oops. I couldn't walk too well for a few days. Niko did a good job of avoiding trampling me cuz when I fell I looked up and saw all four hooves in the air over me. I rolled away and he took off down the street. I figure, I have no business trying to trail break a show arabian. I put him back up for sale. Maybe I can buy two trail broke old nags for what he's worth with his bloodlines and sweepstakes nomination.
Well adios for now. Happy trails.

Hi! Writing back...
Hey, sure is good to hear from you. I am going out on another ride today and maybe again tomorrow. I am going to work on getting him to cross water. He just refuses right now. He's such a priss, he won't even step in mud if he can help it. Pray for trail mercies.
Happy trails to you. Kindest regards, Niko.

Hi Smoke!
Well maybe you'll be able to play in the creek next time. Sure wish I had a creek of my own...
To answer your question, the trail ride went awsome! He spooked about half a dozen times or more at what I consider "stupid stuff" but we all know, a horses fear isn't "studpid", but seriously outright dangerous if not attended to. Anyways, it got to be fun after a while because I could practicly predict when he'd do it and he just side steps a little and shakes... It's the funniest thing. It doesn't phase me much since I ride with an Australian stock saddle. I swear by it. That saddle has literally saved my hiny quite a few times.
Well, happy & safe trails to you dear. Write back when you can. Kindest regards, Niko

Hey
Hey! Sounds like smoke is a pretty special horse! He must be really lucky to have an owner like you! Flicka was neglected a about a year and half ago so we bought her from the lady that rescued her and she was really nervous about everything. But now im riding her at a walk and she is relaxed. We even went on a trail ride and she never spooked! I was amazing! I'm hoping to start trotting her today!

Hey!
Your reply about Smoke was really cute. Good luck with trimming him down. It shouldn't be too difficult. Let me know how it goes. Sounds like a horses dreamland where you are keeping him. Fat & happy is what he is.
Good luck and keep in touch. Take care.

Thanks!
Thanks for the warm compliments and blog you left me and Niko! I just love this photo of your horse! It totally says, "Hey, talk to the bu--!" Cute attitude in the expression! I just get a kick out of great photos like that! Good luck with all you wish to accomplish whether it be horse of the day or first place at a show. But I think it's most important to be first place in our horses hearts!

Hey Smoke
Uhg!!!!! I LOVE my human, but she took me to a horse show yesterday and it was sooooo hot I thought I was going to have a heart attack!!! And she woke me up at six in the morning and I was sleeping!!! But today she came and let me graze, brushed me, and gave me yummy homemade horse cookies. Then I got turned out with my best friend Frosty. So I guess I forgive my human.

Hey Best Horse EVER!
Hey Best Horse in the Whole Wide World
Hey Smoke! What's up? I think I should buck Sam off again because it was here Birthday yesterday and she deserves it! I really don't like her. We used to go on trail rides all the time and hang out but now all we do is go around that stupid ring and jump over those stupid jumps and even when we do go out side we have to run all the time. I like to take it nice and slow, a trail ride should be rewarding not work. DUH! Did u here what she got? Dog stuff she loves that stupid Lou more than me! I hate her. She deserves a horse like me who can throw her in the dirt when it is needed. I mean Smoke just left the field. I wanted to go with you and leave Cocoa there no offence. I had not seen you for 2 weeks! Please Help me dump her. She already loves Creole. She should just offer to trade me for him. Sorry I am so arrogant! Jesse

I love his color!!! He looks so sweet!!! My pony is afraid of "evil" logs and jump flowers. Ya know, those flowers will jump up and bring you down if your not careful (Tonka's thought).
