Simply Priceless does cross country in the CIC 3 star division (his favorite!) and Indiana Chrome (aka ‘Indy’) completes the final two phases of competition at theTraining level at the Carolina Horse Trials.
The Rocking Horse Winter II horse trials were great experience for Indy and Emit. for Indy, it was his first competition at the Training level. For my big banana boat Emit, this was his first recognized show ever! I was so proud of him as he maintained his composure and stayed in the ring evenContinue reading “He’s back!”
Since this was Indy’s first training, I decided to school him through the water first. So I made a little detour (which is completely allowed.) He did get a little confused (fussing a little because he was distracted by the other jumps). Once he got his feet wet, he was then very brave to dropContinue reading “Indiana Chrome’s first Training!”
Because ECOGOLD makes the #HardestWorkingPad, they helped me to #SpreadFlippingCheer to my long-time working student Aly Rattazzi…but it required a little bit of BUCKEYE® Nutrition trickery. Emit (aka ‘Baby Mustang’), Teddy (British Warmblood), and Indy (Off the Track thoroughbred) compete at the Poplar Place Farm schooling show. I’m so proud of the progress these boysContinue reading “Spreading Flipping Cheer”
First horse show EVER for baby mustang Emit, and the first show of the season for ‘black dragon’ Johnny (this is how each season begins). The schooling show at the Georgia International Horse in Conyers, GA was great experience for green bean OTTBs Henri and Indy as well. Buy disposable ice bags here >> http://amzn.to/2h1tJqB
Indy (aka Indiana Chrome) and Henri (aka Heron’s Waltz) compete at the Rocking Horse Fall Horse Trials in Altoona, FL. Bright Water (aka ‘Teddy’) gets worked. I continue my quest to improve my sleep with a search for the perfect pillow.
Pocket sneezes…A LOT! I pick up a new old trailer. Indy goes schooling and gets REALLY good at breaking lead ropes.
Indy is going to be quite a nice horse for the future, and I’m excited to see how he progresses. Joey gets a flashlight. Timothy and I celebrate our anniversary by visiting the World of Coca-Cola and eating at Gunshow, an Atlanta restaurant recently opened by Kevin Gillespie of Top Chef fame. Guest appearances byContinue reading “It was disgusting”
My new thoroughbreds are RIDICULOUS! We’ve had a great week of training, with lot of new experiences. Indy is starting to learn that not all ground is flat and that horses are actually all terrain vehicles. Henri has HUGE potential. As I encourage his sense of curiosity, his playful personality is really starting to shineContinue reading “Off The Hook Thoroughbreds”
