Ozzie ‘graduates’ and is sent home to his owner, Ginny Grigsby. I buy a new horse, an off the track thoroughbred named First Chant, whom I call Joey. Henri finally learns how to sit. This is probably the mot difficult video I’ve had to make, and is dedicated to my nana Frank Drummond Youngblood, whoContinue reading “New Beginnings and Tearful Goodbyes”
Ozzie learns how to sit, and I help my friend Kristy Stengard pick out and pick up a wild burro from the BLM. While at the satellite adoption, a phone call to Cindy Brasfield helps us to pick the right one. In the end, we actually ended up coming home with two, since Mary Miller-JordanContinue reading “Haulin’ Ass”
Looking forward to competing at Burghley in September! I’m fundraising to make this a reality. In addition to a GoFundMe campaign, I’ll also me auctioning off the saddle that I used during my very first Rolex! Follow me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/WallaceEventing) for more information and to place your bid! Ozzie goes on his first fieldContinue reading “Keep Moving Forward”
Hanging out at a waterfall with Maya Black and Caitlin Calder before heading back to Rock Creek Farms. Ozzie gets his first trail ride and first canter under saddle. I convince my husband to do jumping jacks.
Ozzie sees lots of improvement as he finally begins to feel comfortable under saddle. A trip to Dover Saddlery to try on One K helmets and get a new hay bag for Johnny ends with the discovery of Southern Biscuits and Gravy potato chips, and an argument with my Canadian husband.
After four months together, this vlog episode is all about my progress with Azogar (aka ‘Ozzie’), including information about my training techniques and goals with the horse
Update on Sparks. Johnny goes for a gallop to prepare for the Carolina Horse Trials. Ozzie gets some experience under saddle.
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. I get my third ride on Henri, a 6 year old off the track thoroughbred, and my team-mate in the upcoming Retired Racehorse Project competition. He moves really well, and took to jumpingContinue reading “Stranger danger”
In this week’s vlog, I try a new kind of protein bar made from insects, and talk a little about my search for a working student. My new mustang, Ozzie, is eating grain, and I was able to hop on him for a ride. Progress on Sparks is taking longer than I would like, butContinue reading “Crickets are delicious”
