In this week’s vlog, I take Johnny for a gallop and explain a little about my thought process going into two weeks of pre-Rolex training in Florida with Karen and David O’Connor. Ozzie is learning quickly and overcoming the reactive side of his brain. It was a huge deal to see him finally learn notContinue reading “Safety First”
Post Carolina recap and a pre-Rolex visit from my favorite saddle fitter, Nancy Bardy. I’ve been designing a jump saddle with Custom Saddlery and I’m excited to show off some of the results!
Update on Sparks. Johnny goes for a gallop to prepare for the Carolina Horse Trials. Ozzie gets some experience under saddle.
Day three at the Red Hills International Horse Trials. In this vlog, I talk about Johnny’s performance and take you behind the scenes to talk about what happens in the vet box after cross country at a an international event.

I’ve only missed two sinceContinue reading “My own worst enemy”
Unexpected snow, and a welcome visit from Nancy Bardy (Harmony Saddle Fitting / Custom Saddlery) to do some tree adjustments for Hwin. Fledge is a super training assistance with Ozzie, leading by example, building confidence, and keeping behavior in check.
Training continues with Ozzie. Elisa gets a hair cut. Timothy eats banana bread. Elisa and Timothy get cheesy. All in all, another exciting week for Wallace Eventing.
You can really see in this week’s vlog how much progress a horse can make in a very short period of time.

He moves really well, and took to jumpingContinue reading “Stranger danger”
In spite of the fact that I felt wretched over the weekend, the ponies put in a really great showing at the 2016 Rocking Horse Winter II Horse Trials in Altoona, FL over the weekend. Johnny (aka Simply Priceless) put in a very strong performance, finishing on his dressage score to end up in 4thContinue reading “Bad Mare Day”
