  1. Thanks Adrianne! (did I spell that right?!) A pic from today.. And Miss THANG who feels so good now that I clipped her (its just so hot!)
  2. Congrats!!! Shes a good egg!
  3. Great video! Love the sunglasses! Layla turned 17 on March 30th. Cant believe Ive had her 10 yrs now.
  4. Oh ok! I was afraid something had happened to her.
  5. And cant forget Miss Layla!
  6. Hey Kendra! It has been a while! Not sure if you were around when I bought my young horse. I bought a then 21 month old GOV Oldenburg gelding by Routinier named Revolver AKA Rex. I was schooling 2nd level with Layla but we were both getting burned out on everything so I semi retired her when it was time to start Rex. I started him myself (first time from the ground up) in Nov of 2010 when he was just shy of 3.5. Things were going great until he broke his lateral splint on the LH and he was out of work for 7 months. I started him back Nov of last year and we were doing well until he injured himself AGAIN in March with a bad cut on his leg and was down for another 4 wks. I finally got him going again and we made our show debut memorial weekend with our GMO. Layla is still hanging around - mostly retired but my friends still get on and ride her and I get on every once in a while for a hack. Shes actually in the smartpak catalogs and online for the Smart Omega 3 product. Heres some pics of Rex Our first show - Rex was trying to convience me that we really didnt need to go towards the judges box Better for our second test - went from 53.75 to 66.88 My trainer schooling him for me between classes
  7. Thanks Boo!!! 50lbs and counting though everyone says Im losing more the scale doesnt say so but my clothes do? Who knows! Cant wait to see some pics and vids of you and Bobby! Hope your lesson is good! Thanks Pamela! I stalk you on FB too!
  8. Congrats on a good show! Im out of the loop I guess... dare I ask what happened to Cheese?
  9. Show went really really well. First test was tense and he decided to turn the walk between x and c movement into a stop, turn, balk, get light up front, walk, stop, sidestep movement. Going back towards the judge for the circle in intro a was fun and our trot to walk transition between c and h was a halt and turn to face the judge. LOL We got a 53.75%. My trainer showed up that morning (surprised me as I had not spoken to him about coming as hes out of town, this is just a schooling show and just me going, and hes recovering from shingles) and he worked Rex a little between classes. Second ride was much better. I just put my trust into Dean and Rex and kept those legs glued to his sides and put my hands forward. I felt like I was on a keg of dynamite but he was trying so hard to focus. Intro B was much better and we came away with a 66.88% and 1st place and our first qualifying score for our gmos championships. Here is a link to my post on UDBB with photos and a link to the intro b video http://www.ultimatedressage.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=226882
  10. Awesome. I would go with it if hes offering the canter. I know some people wait until they are going for a month or so to canter but then they get nervous because they think they will act up. I read and have to agree with the fact that if you start off cantering in the beginning, it is no big deal to you or them and training down the road is much easier. I cantered Rex u/s (in a round pen) for his 5th ride (3rd ride off the line and doing more than walking) and have cantered him pretty much every ride since. Cant wait to see u/s pics. BTW... going to Rexs first u/s show Saturday... inside the BIG indoor arena... oy!
  11. Super cute mare. An ill fitting saddle can make a world of difference and can def be some if not all of the reasons she is being pissy and giving you attitude. I am not always a huge advocate for lungeing but I am dealing with Rex giving me crap when asking him to pay attention instead of socializing (hes about to turn 5 and its that stage...) and he will keep sucking back no matter what I do and it just is not productive. So Ive been having to get off and lunge and then get back on and tada great ride. So maybe you could lunge her first (not running her around to get her energy down but to do purposeful lungeing with side reins, encouraging her to relax and let go of her back and underneck). I used to have to lunge Layla before riding b/c she just did not understand how to relax with a rider up. So I would lunge first, get her stretching and swinging, and then get on and build from that. BTW... here you go
  12. Hey Boo!!!! Bobby looks great! I cant believe how big he has gotten. Congrats on a great final show season with Beau. Glad to see things are working out for you. What happened with the selling of the houses and your husbands job moving you guys all over?
  13. Sometimes the best decision is not the easiest. I think your reasons are all valid. Your goals of what you want in a horse do not match what he is. I think giving him back to his old owner is a good idea. The last thing you want to do is keep him around, risk getting injured, kill your confidence, and then get stuck with a horse that you cant even sell without sending it to someone else. Good luck with everything and I hope you heal quickly. I had my gall bladder out Nov 2nd along with endometriosis surgery and that was bad enough. 6 wks without riding is a lot better than months.
  14. So this Saturday I was finally able to long line Rex. I had been wanting too all week but getting home after 630pm after putting in 10 hrs left me with no energy. Anyways, it was our first long lining session in over 6 months. He was good. Two little moments where he was being a fresh 4 y/o but not bad. Once going left a little half rear kick deal and then going to the right he still did his typical "I dont want to go to the right so all of a sudden Im going to duck out left at the rail" movement. Hes stiff to the right and was like that before - going to the left has always been easier. So nothing new but he went on about his business with a little encouragement. It was nice to watch him go though as he looks so mature and grown up now even without any muscle. I am catching glimpses of how he could look in the future and his movement and wow. Hes a nice boy if I do say so myself. So wonderful horse husband videographer was there watching and took some video with his cell (our phones have HD capibilities so they are not bad at all) so I got the last part to upload (the others were jumpy and freezing in a different video setting) and I also took stills from the vids to see too. Im a little rusty with the lines and need to get a little quicker with keeping him from losing the right position and try to keep the ducking from even happening. But not too shabby with over 6 months off. Video Some stills little naughtiness And the link to my FB photos (its public) http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2645282738514.2138007.1449009522&type=1&l=0ccc014506
  15. Thanks guys. Pamela, you can post photos by uploading them say to your FB account. Once they are uploaded, open up each photo you want to share to the full size, right click on it, click on PROPERTIES, and copy the URL that comes up in the little grey window. Then when you are making a post here, you just click on the little photo icon (two to the right of the smiley face above) and paste the URL. Tada.
