History on the Gorgeous Akhal-Teke
*please read very interesting sorry its long

The Akhal-Teke evolved about three thousand years ago in southern Turkmenistan where they are the national emblem. They are named after the nomadic tribe that bred them and are found mostly in Turkmenistan and Russia. These beautiful horses adapt to severe, climatic conditions and remain to be one of the oldest and purest breed of horse still living today. They are thought to be the predecessors of the Arabian and English thoroughbred breeds. Due to their endless stamina and the ability to withstand great extremes of temperature they were originally bred as war mounts and later for racing. Today the Akhal-Teke is used in all competitive equine sports including endurance, dressage, jumping, and eventing. The blood of the Akhal-Teke horse carries an ancient Oriental legacy laced with the endurance born of centuries of survival in the unforgiving Turkmenian deserts.Hi i am Twilight i am running for HOTM and i need some votes but if you are new to the HC or you need help with something come and ask me i will help you as much as i can.Thank you for reading and heres a vote for you have a great day!

the rides were good hbu?

its been awhile! well I have some news! This past week Comanche has been antcy, tossing his head, and bucking. I feel off twice this while galloping onch it hurt! lol... So back to the point I decided to do some research on why he may he acting in this way. And the reason is he hasn't had his wolf teeth pulled out and his teeth filled plus the bit I used is a little large for him which probably was rubbing on his wolf teeth! I'm so glad its not a behavior problem!

Happy Sunday!
Has school started for you yet? Don't let homework interfere with your "Windy" time LOL!

I had a great time yesterday. The stable where I board Luna had a 42nd birthday celebration with an open house, so the public came out and it was great! I got to show off Luna to a lot of horse-crazy children, and answer their horse-related questions. Then I went on a short trail ride, about 45 minutes, with 8 other friends of mine. It was a hot day, but cool and pleasant under the trees in the woods.

The last week or so, Luna has been real calm and accepting of everything I ask. I don't know if I've become a better rider suddenly, or if she's decided it's just easier to put up with me LOL!

It's almost 7 a.m. and it looks like rain today. I hope I can get a quick ride in. If not, I'll just go out and groom her.

I left you a vote, have a horsey day!

Please vote for Snow White #220994 for Horse Of The Day!

Hi HC Friends. A friend came into work tonight and offered me a free horse. He's 3 years old and needs work. Not as big as Sadie. Don't know if he's a gelding or not. So tempting, but a horse is expensive. I fall behind, at times, with things I need to do for Sadie and Star. If money was a little better. It will be soon. Would like to know more. Will be down to just Sadie in a few months. Have to do some thinking. Need an opinion. Thanks. Hugs and a vote.

Hi, I just wanted to share that I had a lovely ride on Charlie this morning. I can't believe how well he travelled. I'm wondering if that foot had been sore for some time. He just didn't feel like he was trying to extend, I thought he was just lazy, that is part of it, but today, he was a star. I still kept is short and sweet, walk, trot and just a bit of canter. I promise I will relax a bit after Greg see him next Wednesday, as long as we get good news. Left a vote, talk soon, Donna Lee

Hi, So sorry I haven't been on this week, you know the drill, overtime at work, chores, loving up my guys and trying to get in a couple of rides....Things are going good, left a vote. The farrier is coming next Wednesday to check Charlie and probably reset the shoes. I have been riding, but carefully. I guess it could be worse. At least he will have the winter to grow out, and by next spring he should almost have a new foot. No big plans here for the weekend, just relax and ride early before it get hot again. Talk soon, Donna Lee

i used buttercup in a lesson last night. i'm so happy it went well. my rider just worked figures at walk/trot and did some halting transitions. she was very excited to have a successful ride on this quick powerhouse of a mare. :) i told her she can ride her all month and work toward cantering.

With the temperature cooler, I got to spend some time with the girls. Rick came home with hay. He called me to go out and open the gate. I was surprised to see Star standing in the front yard next to my car. I put the lead rope on her and led her back through the gate. Sadie was still inside of the fence. I checked the fence and found where Sadie had knocked it halfway down. She rubs that big itchy butt on the fence and had bent the posts over. They got brushed. Scruffy, too. He was loving the attention..... Because of the rain, the corral is slippery and messy. I let the girls stay out all day. I put them up after dark. Didn't want to risk leaving them out and something possibly happening. I took a bag of carrots out with me when I was putting them up. I had to put the lead rope back on Star to guide her in. Sadie, knowing I had the carrots, wanted them. She's a carrot junkie. I pointed toward the gate and told her to go in, and I'd give her some. She went in the corral and came back out after a few seconds. As I was leading Star in, I pointed to the gate, again, and told her to go back in, and I'd give her some carrots. She went back in and waited for me. As soon as I got Star in, I divided the carrots between them. So amazed and impressed with how well Sadie learns. I'm so blessed. Hugs and an it's raining, again, vote.

It was a lovely day until the rains came in. There was a long storm that recently ended. It feels really nice outside these days.
Trigger was blind in one eye before we got him. Monday his blind eye was very cloudy. Today the vet told me Trigger is fine long as he is in no pain. He is such a great kids horse. I hate that something happened to his eye and I pray that I can take good care of him from now on.

Please visit Sassy Sapphire #193884 and leave an encouraging word. From what I can tell, her blog to me says Sassy Sapphire's owner lost her father this past Sunday morning.

One of my friends was out last Saturday at one of the state parks riding and there was an accident. Her friend dismounted to help and her friend's palomino TWH walked off. They were on the news tonight asking for help to find the missing horse. Please pray that they find Jasmine in good health very soon.

Very Important Message from Logan #237047: Could you please spread the word that my wrist is in really bad condition and I can't vote for people today! It is swelled up pretty bad and moving it hurts! Please spread the word!

Sorry it has taken so long for me to get back to you! I have been really busy.
I had a bucking episode with Paragon yesterday. I was trying out a new saddle and when I asked him to trot, and in response, he started bucking! I got his head up and dismounted and called my grandpa who is basically my trainer. He said to put his old saddle on and try again to see if he does the same thing. I walked him over to the hitching post and switched saddles. Then I mounted and gave him the cue to walk. He immediatly started bucking, even worse that the first time! So it definetly wasn't the saddle hurting him. I called my grandpa back and he said he would come over and ride him that evening. When he got here, he saddled him up and rode him around. He rode holding the reins about half way up his neck with some contact, not pulling, but just contact. He explained that in order to buck, a horse has to get his head down. If you don't let him get his head down, he can't buck! Paragon tried to buck a few times, unsucessfully. Grandpa got him to go around his "scary" corner, but not without Paragon throwing a big tempertantrum and trying to buck. Then I got on and copied Grandpa. It went well. Grandpa said that Paragon is the kind of horse that needs a firm and knowledgeable hand that won't let him get away with things.
Indy is growing fast and getting big. He is such a sweet boy! He really has the temperament of his mother, Ima Darling. Hope you have a good week! Voted:)

I didn't ride today; I decided to work on ground work and it went well. We worked on backing though gates, lateral movement away from pressure, and changing direction while lunging. It wasn't a smashing success, but I could tell Luna was starting to get the idea. I will repeat the same lessons for the next few days until I'm sure she understands.

Getting ready to go riding with one of my friends while its still early morning!!!! I hope to get some good pictures! later today I have a little horse crazy girl coming to ride Comanche he is such a good boy with kids! Pride on the other hand has done so much lunging he gets bored after like two rounds. The saddle is a cinch now to! We talked to some horse experts on when he could have a person on him and they all said he could be sat on now but no heavy riding/riding at all till hes two!!! So I worked with Pride and after awhile I sat on him and he almost fell asleep! So proud of both my boys!

God bless

A Sunday vote for you!
I hope you're having a great weekend. Does Windy live on your property, or do you board her? My mare is boarded, but I only live 15 minutes away, so I can see her every day (and I do LOL!).
I totally got to canter yesterday (I know, for you youngsters that's no big deal, but I'm an "old lady" so it's a huge adventure LOL)! I was on a trail ride with friends and Luna was kind of lagging behind. She realized she was being left behind, so she trotted a couple of strides, then broke into a wonderful, exciting, breath-taking canter, and it was the most fabulous thing that has happened to me in awhile. I am going to try to do that again today! I love horseback riding!!
