How We Met

This is a page for the Westernaires, the biggest and best precision mounted drill team in the world at speed, I've been riding with them for a LONG time! There are about 1000 girls and 100 boys, all coming from the local county (we ride at the county fairgrounds so you have to be a resident to join) but otherwise anyone is welcome! You can join when you are 9 and quit when you graduate from high school, but most of the people come back to work as instructors, monitors, wranglers, and volunteers because Westernaires is run strictly on its volunteers! The only paid person is the live-in fairgrounds care-taker! Westernaires allows kids with no horse experience whatsoever to come and ride and work their way up the ranks and learn everything they know about horses! And yet, Westernaires is so much more to all of us. Some people will say it's just a hobby, but most of us know better. To us it's a second home, where you can go and chill with the horses and eat a good hot meal cheap and get to know people who become your friends for life. When you're in the arena sometimes it can be scary with people darting all over the place and flags whipping on a windy day and horses being horses...but at the end of the day they're your team and you trust them with your life. Even more you trust the horse underneath you, to carry you a million times around that arena, threading in and out, crossing, passing through, spinning that propeller and star, and it becomes the thing you look forward to every single day. 'Gosh is it Saturday yet?!?!' You learn how to fall and always get back up. You learn how to cry when you don't get your favorite horse, or when you don't get moved up as quickly as you want to. Sometimes it even makes you think, "I wonder...if I can do really bad this year in school and get held back, maybe I'll have another year of Westernaires!" LOL! It's our passion. (Pictures are by: S.

Diagrams & Maneuvers
Below are diagrams of some of the basic Westernaire maneuvers: Propeller, Mariner's Cross, Thread the Needle, Double Thread, Lace, Star, and Spanish Bowline. This is exactly how we diagram our drills in the classroom. These maneuvers aren't the same with every drill, which is why I haven't numbered the riders, but you can at least see what the maneuvers look like. The motion dots represent where the riders are coming from; each arrow is a horse & rider; I've included the rider color code. There are (for most Red Division/advanced drills) seven fours, 2 CP's (Center Points) (which can be replaced with American or Specialty flags), and several points in each GPA (General Point Area) in the center of the four quadrants of the arena. CP's/AM's are usually located at LCS/RCS (Left/Right Center Side), in the middle of Star, Propeller, etc., but move with the team depending on the drill. Colorado flags (CO's) are special to certain teams, namely Crimson ♥ and Red Team. In Crimson there are four, and they are just special points, usually on the outside of Star, at the top of wedges, etc. In Red Team's drills the whole team can be AM's, in which case they are not CP's; in Grand Entry, with the "Ride of the Colors," the AM's come in AFTER Red Team's drill and Serpentine, and are the first to leave after the National Anthem; American flags do NOT dip in salute; all other flags salute the Americans. ***GENERAL RULES OF THUMB FOR ALL MANEUVERS*** (unless instructed otherwise): during MARINER'S CROSS, THREAD, and DOUBLE THREAD, RIGHT SIDE ALWAYS crosses FIRST. Leave when the person who is crossing in front of you is HALF WAY to the CENTER (this varies slightly depending on the speed of the drill). For PASSTHROUGHS, DO-SI-DO's, or whenever riders must pass each other: ALWAYS pass LEFT-HAND-TO-LEFT-HAND (as the flag is held in the right hand and you don't want two flags to get caught). When you are headed for the rail and no call is made, always go LEFT. When alternating, first trooper/pair/four turns in the direction given; for example, "alternate right and left," first front goes right; "alternate left and right," first pair goes left. Always look ahead to see where you will go. When CIRCLING, SPINNING, etc., inside rider must PIVOT, and outside rider must go the speed specified. During PROPELLER, STAR, SPIN, CIRCLES, REVERSES, etc., ALWAYS guide on the OUTSIDE rider; glance inward. For ALL maneuvers done in fronts (pairs, fours, wings of a Star/Propeller, etc.), stay BOOT-TO-BOOT. ALWAYS guide on the RAIL rider. ALWAYS have spacing between your front and the one in front of you, depending on the number of riders in said front; EXCEPTIONS: PASSTHROUGHS, SPANISH BOWLINE, etc., in which case you MUST be NOSE-TO-TAIL to avoid collsions. ALL maneuvers are executed on the "HO." SAFETY VALVE: "HALT HO": ANY rider may call it in case of an emergency; all riders stop within three paces; NEVER drop your flag in an emergency: other horses may spook.

Please vote for Theadore O'Conner, Karen O'Conner's eventing star! The dear pony had to be euthanized May 28 after falling and hurting himself severely. He was short-listed for the Olympics this year and he's won the Team and Individual Gold Medalist from the 2007 Pan American Games and had top six finishes at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event in 2007 and 2008. He was the 2007 USEF/Farnam Horse of the Year. Can't we all honor this pony with the power by giving him Horse Of The Day?
