My Horse's Favorite Things To Do:

Pet Peeves: 6-6-2014 update: So Loosey got her 1st sohes on a couple weeks ago, also I got her teeth floated a nd she has been riding so much better! I have an amazing opportunity to give lessons to a young girl that lives up the street. I have let her ride around on my pony, now she wants lessons over the summer! This is going to be so fun, i cant wait!

My Horse's motto: Me and my friend bought two project ponies to break/ride and maybe show them over the summer and then sell them!

UPDATE 02-20-2014: Rode Loosey all by herself in the woods the past few days, and she did awesome! i have been getting a really good controlled canter. she is doing great about stoping when i say whoa! we are going to put both the ponies on the internet today! so, THEY ARE FOR SALE!! im going to get some good riding pics of them today!

Update 02-25-2014: a young girl can out on Sunday to ride Peanut and really liked her so she is going to come back this next sunday and try out Loosey! So happy!

UPDATE 03-03-2014
Well the girl came out on Sundany and rode Peanut and Loosey and really loved them and wants to buy them but cant afford them at the moment, so we might work out a deal or something. In the meantime i put both ponies on like 4-5 different websites last night and I got a call from a lady wanting more pics of Lucy and another lady wanting a vid of Peanut! So exciting! So tomorrow im going to the barn and get them all cleaned up and get vids/pics!

UPDATE 3-4-2014: Ok, so my very patient sister helped me take great vids and pics of the ponies today! So pleased with how they turned out! Sent some to both ladies that are interested in them! Im putting up the youtube links to both ponies videos of me riding them! please go check them out and tell me what you think! Thanks! Oh and i also uploaded more pics of them on their HC profile!

Update 03-14-2014:
The people were supposed to come this weekend to look at the ponies but havent called back. oh well. hopefully get some interested buyers soon! Its been a lot of fun! I have been riding the hair off of Loosey this week, she got loose AGAIN last Friday and I ran her full speed in the round pen for an hour! She aint going think about doing that again!

Update 3-29-2014:
So we had to move both ponies off the farm, farm owner is getting rid of all horses. So my friend took Peanut to another farm and i am keeping Loosey up the street from my house. Im thinking about taking her to some shows this summer, hopefully get some interested buyers!

Update 04-16-2014: Rode Loosey up the street and gave some kids pony rides on her! She did great, but some of the kids did spook her. So we have some things we need to work on!

How We Met

Peanut is a 7yr mare, had never been rode before we got her, but is doing absolutely fabulous under saddle! Very willing.
On the other hand the supposedly broke one, Loosey, is the problem child! haha, she has obviously gotten away with a lot of crap! she broke out of her stall the 2nd night we had her and it took a lasso to catch her! She jumped out of the round pen twice and ran back to the barn, and the other day she kicked down her stall wall and jumped over to the other side, thankfully it was an empty stall!
WHEW! And we haven't even had them for a week!

01/25/2014 UPDATE: went and rode the ponies today with my friend! and they did absolutly great! Peanut is being very willing/obedien- t to the things we ask her, even took her over a little jump! On Loosey, still trying to get a straight line down! she is hard to turn and im wondering if her teeth need floating... but then again she trys all the time to see what she an get away with! Loped her for the first time today, couldnt get a circle down so i just rode by the rail and she did better!

UPDATE 01-31-2014:
Had a great ride on both Peanut and Loosey today! I got a awesome controlled lope on Loosey! And Peanut even did some lead changes, even if they werent asked for, but its a start! Change Loosey to a German martingale and she is giving to the bit SO much better! So proud of how they are improving!
UPDATE: 02-03-2014
Well Peanut was quite the little jumper gal today! We took her over a lot of cross jumps and she was so willing to take every one of them! Loosey did great, as long as her buddy is in the arena she does great and doesnt think much about running back to the barn! In the middle of the ride she decided that she wasnt going to stop or back up so we had a little "come to Jesus mettin" bout that! and she got better! Someone is coming to look at Loosey soon, and they are going to ride her sometime!

UPDATE: 02-09-2014
We rode both ponies on a trail ride today, and they.did. amazing! I could not have been more happier with how they did, they didnt spook or act buddy sour! And they did great crossing streams and we cantered them in a huge field and they were great, didnt try to run off.

Didn't ride yesterday but introduced a new groundwork exercise to Allie and Gracie, and they did well for their first time doing it. Drizzly today but hope to reinforce the lesson again. Hope you're having a good Thur.

Come visit me, allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Had an amazing afternoon Wednesday. Friends, Grace and Toby and their 3 kids, who moved to Arkansas 3 years ago, because Toby got stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base, came out. They just spent their vacation here with Toby's parents. Sadie gave everyone rides. First, Tyler, who is 7, rode Sadie bareback with no bridle. We put the saddle and bridle on. Everyone took a turn riding. Short rides because it was 108*. Grace and Toby took lots of pictures. They all had a wonderful time. So did I. Sadie was amazing. Such a good girl. She behaved herself. No attitude like she sometimes has with new people. So dang proud of her! Thinking of you all and leaving a vote.

WOW, SO PROUD OF YOU
Hi, I just watched your video and I would like to tell you that I think you have done a fabulous job with her. You are a lovely rider, my Mom used to say, "it doesn't matter what you do in life, but enjoy it and be good at it" clearly you have found what makes you happy. I can't critique, 'cause I'm no pro, I know what I like and I like what you do. Love Donna Lee

my thoughts on your video: what a nice area you have to ride in! it reminds me so much of when I brought sing home and started her over homemade jumps of landscape timbers. :) please consider shortening your stirrups a few holes. she jumps in a very nice relaxed rhythm. that is a real plus when starting out. so many rush the jumps. I don't think a martingale is the answer. you want to work more on the flat (always boring to the young rider) to work the head down and get flexion at the poll and jaw. circles, canter/halt transition and reinback should help. she also needs to learn her leads. when you land after a jump and she's on the left lead but is going to turn right you should drop back to trot, make the change to right lead, then continue. that will keep her in a balanced frame. if you do not know your leads then that's something for you to work on. the next step is teaching the flying change. I've used a pole to canter over. as the horse lifts to canter over the pole, you shift your hips, bend to the lead you want and push your heel back behind the girth for the lead switch, all at the same time. some horses will learn it by simply dropping back to trot and changing the lead and try to do just one trot stride. nice job with her!

Excellent equitation! For me, coming from a dressage background, I'd like to see her a little bit more willing and 'in the bridle' as well as more suppleness through the back and shoulder area. She looks like she might have a bit of a stiff legged canter so you might want to work on smoothing her out and getting her to relax just on the flat as well.
What a cutie pie though!

Hi Loosey, just watched the video like 4 times! Needed to zero in on different things. Let's address your riding first. You have very good equitation! Nice tight leg on her and never moves. No spagetti legs as we call them. Your upped body has good position too, maybe on the take off of the jumps you could use a little more bend forward and up off her back, but the crest release is nice. You are an excellant rider. As for miss Loosey, first set of jumps, she swapped leads on you and you counter cantered for a long time. Maybe she's smooth and you didn't feel it. Her movements and strides are good, but to me it looks like she needs to be a lot more in the bridle and give to the bit. I don't like that head up and out like that, it hollows out her back, which is not giving her the driving from behind that she needs. Maybe try working with a standing martingale for the jumping to teach her to give to the bit better. But like I say, I'm not a jumper at all. I think the person on HC that could really add light to the subject would be Susan of Sing and Herd. That's her main thing and she's an instructor with english back ground. Looking at the profile picture of Loosey, she's built good, but can't tell if her neck ties in, in a way that it's not comfortable for her to flex at the pole and give to the bit. Good luck. Marion and the blondes.
