  4. Your Most Embarrassing Photos...

    Hahahaha. We usually aren't! But she has her bossy pony mare moments where there is absolutely no telling her that you're going to hold out for a spot that isn't borderline suicide. What's sad is that the first jump in that line was perfect.
  5. Your Most Embarrassing Photos...

    I love these threads. They make me feel a little better about myself. Hahahah. So, break out your most embarrassing pictures. I think I have the mother of all blackmail photos right here, though. Dear Lord almighty...This is a 2'9" class and my pony is 13.3.

  8. Update And Some Pictures

    I haven't been on in a while, I've been so busy at the barn. Just thought I'd update you guys on my pony because I'm so proud of her. A year ago, I started riding Paisley for my mom's friend. I helped them pick her out for their daughter, who quit riding shortly after. That's a long story. Anywho, taught her how to jump, showed her in the 2' all last year, and finished with a grand champion and two thirds for the entire year on our circuit. In December, the Children's Hunter prospect I was leasing fell through and I decided to lease Paisley. In January, we went to our first C show and showed in the Pre-Children's and were Reserve Champion. She was so good. But I always dreamed of showing in the ponies, so in February we moved up to the 2'9" Large Ponies. Our first time out, she brought home two 3rds, a 4th, a 5th, and two 6ths out of 15 ponies. I was so proud! Our second time, she got two 2nds over fences and a blue in the hack to be Reserve. You guys just have no clue how proud I am of this little thing. A year ago, she was a backyard 4H pony. Now, she's cleaning up in the Larges at C shows. I'm proud of myself for bringing her this far, but I'm more proud of her. She has so much heart and she loves her job. And somehow over the past year, I've formed an incredible bond with this pony who has never showed affection towards anyone else. Yesterday, I turned her loose in the arena and she trotted alongside me while I jumped an entire course on foot. I just love her. Anyway, here's a few pictures. Schooling at home. Schooling at Aiken First ribbons in the Larges (before she got clipped, yikes hahaha) February, Large Pony Hack February, Pony Medal February, Pony Medal Day 2 That's all. (:
  9. Feels Like Ages...

    Hey y'all. I feel like I haven't been on in forever. I was thinking about rpgs today so I decided to drop in. I really miss it here! But I'm hating the setup now. Anywho. I don't know when I last updated you guys so I'll start at the beginning, quickly. The horse I was leasing back in December when back. She just wasn't what I was looking for. At that point, we decided to lease Paisley, the grey pony I trained and showed last year, and bring her to my barn. We've had her since January. Last year, I showed her in the 2' but she was wayyy bored. In January, we went to our first C show and I moved her up to the 2'6" Pre-Children's. We were Reserve Champ and she was a star, but I didn't like showing against horses because she's only 13.3 and frankly she doesn't move like they do and the lines are harder. So we worked a lot at home and in February I moved her up to the 2'9" Large Ponies. Our first time out she was great and brought home a ribbon in every class. We got two 3rds, a 4th, a 5th, and two 6ths out of 15 ponies. I was so proud! In March, we went to a different area for some different competition. There she brought home Reserve in the Larges with two 2nds over fences and a blue in the hack. Again - so proud! We have a show next weekend, hoping to do as well or even better. (: Logan is doing fantastic. He's getting used in beginner lessons and every once in a while and I'm still riding him. I hope to show him a little at the C's in the fall just for fun. Picture time? Paisley and I in the Larges in February (before she got clipped, hahaha) Logie and I swimming the other day! Ariel, a medium at my barn I've been schooling. She's just too cute not to share. Logannn! Paisley and I schooling 3'ish at home. Hacking in the Larges in February. She got a 3rd here. The end. (:

  11. The Fox's Den

    Foxtrot Equestrian Center, a prestigious barn nestled into a valley in western North Carolina, well-known for Pony Finals champions, Maclay winners, and Grand Prix prodigies. A massive center-aisle stable with fifty-five stalls, an apartment larger than most houses, a state-of-the-art indoor arena, a Rolex-challenging cross-country course, and two perfectly manicured outdoor rings make Foxtrot the envy of the majority of the barns in the tri-state area. In addition to all this, the family at FEC is tight-knit and warm, unusual for stables of its size and reputation. Everyone who rides here loves it. Foxtrot is owned by 64 year old Walton Fox, a world famous trainer. His wife Elizabeth works the office and financial aspects of the barn, while their son Smith, 35, is quickly taking over the instruction aspect. Although Foxtrot seems like the perfect place to ride, train, and spend sunny afternoons, a hint of mystery is in the air. Two months ago, Smith was accused of drugging a rival barn's horse at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show. He denied it, but ever since, he's been acting extremely suspicious around the farm. Walton Fox never made a single comment about the accusations toward his son, raising eyebrows and confusion in the show world and especially in the tight-knit Foxtrot family. Rules -Y'all know the basics. -Stay active pretty please.

  12. It's Been Too Long [with A Surprise]

    Thanks Chris. (: I got the saddle back in...August I think? It's slightly used a Pessoa Gen-X. I loooove it. My Crosby is still hanging out in my tack room though.
  13. It's Been Too Long [with A Surprise]

    Hey y'all! It's been a really long time since I last posted. I've been a lurker for a little bit. But I figured, with all the exciting news lately, I'd post and show you guys some pictures of all the new stuff in my life. (: Logie is doing alright. He had to have surgery last week because he was biting himself between his back legs so bad that it was tearing the flesh. He's doing much better now and he seems to be a happy dude. Hopefully he'll be back to work somewhat soon. Paisley and I finished out our show season on an awesome note a couple weeks ago. We'd been having some really bad shows (with refusals and major temper tantrums). The 14th was Finals and we were neck and neck with some other riders in the point standings. My mom and her friend prayed over Paisley and asked that God give her the courage she needed to get around nicely and have a good day. And lo and behold, Miss P rocked it. We won both of our flat classes and tied for Champion in the hunters, and also tied for equitation champion. I couldn't have been more proud of her. The awards banquet is next weekend, and we'll be receiving two third place ribbons and a champion. Since that show she's been chillin out with her friends, but we have a show the weekend after next to kick off the 2011 season. (: Now, for the most exciting news of all! I got a new horse!! (: She's been here for two weeks now. Her name is Harlow and she is a 12 year old off the track Thoroughbred, and is between 16.2 and 16.3. She has a background in the jumpers and equitation, and has also done hunter paces and some dressage. She's been sitting in a pasture for a whiiile now though, so my trainer and I are working together to bring out what we know is there. It's a lot of work but I know in the end it'll be worth it. (: So, now for some pictures. Everybody's favorite part. Haha (: Playing around on Paisley's owner's new pony, Chase. He's the cutest thing ever. At the September show. Schooling the night before finals. (: My second ride on Harlow. And here's the link to pictures from finals. We're numbers 195, 202, 205, 206, 215, 217, 220, 221, 224, 234, and 235 http://www.photoreflect.com/store/ThumbPag...mp;g=1VY5000700
