My Horse Forum
My 5 year old TB mare has been in training for 5 weeks now. Doing good once we figured out that heat cycles are definitely not her friend at all . She is starting to really work on balance at the canter still working on relaxing and realizing that she needs to go slow before she can go fast. She needed work on keeping her shoulder in and getting her legs under herself. She still has a while to go yet til I can start getting my lessons on her and she still comes into the session tense especially to the right (her bad direction) but by the end is going good and relaxing. She is struggling with weight/muscle so I changed up her feed program and will see where we go from there.
Its taking a lot for me to sit back and chill and let things go at this slow of a pace. I'm use to a previous trainer who had another horse of mine (also green at the time) on the pattern in less than 30 days. its tough sitting back and watching the slow progress with Ivy but I keep reminding myself every horse...
Looking to see pictures from those who have had their horses from colt/filly through to adulthood. Want to see foal pictures and then adult pictures!
I haven't owned my mare from when she was a foal, I only had her a few weeks, but I knew of her as a filly. So here she is as a filly, and then as a "grownup"
Alright, I figured I would start a thread for the Level 1 Championships! I'm a little excited if you couldn't tell.
The show is happening in Las Vegas April 19-23 at South Point Casino.
I will be arriving the 17th and my horse will be in the 17th or 18th. I'm showing in Level 1 Amateur Hunter hack on the 20th and HUS and Eq (both Level 1 and Rookie) on the 21st.
Anyone else going? I know at least one or two from here is planning to attend! Share pics and which classes you're going to do if you want!
And just so everyone else doesn't feel left out, if you're doing one of the other Level 1 Championships feel free to share.
Old photo for me (my horse was 3 here) but one of the only showring photos I have.
..."Lord that is one ugly piece of work."
I'm not talking your exes new partner, I'm talking about bridles, saddles, breast collars and so on.
Hahaha I think it would be fun if everyone would share what items make them look twice and wonder "who in their right mind would buy this?"!
I'll share mine in a bit, I have a long list of "do not want" items.
so this is basically just going to be a thread about my journey with cas! i'm going to post every day, and this is basically going to be a little journal (day 1, day 2, etc.) i'm going to start today, and i'll tell what i worked on and how he responded and i'll add some pictures too!
