Spring is finally here! Any horse updates?

Thought I would introduce my new boy, Tigger. He is a 2002 AQHA gelding( ), I ran across him two months ago, and couldn't pass him up.

He will be going to training next week to put some finishing touches on him, and to work on lead changes. He is rusty from doing nothing for nearly a year. I am going to have my Trainer show him sometime this year.

He is an absolute sweetheart.

He is, and he's got a great personality. Wish I didn't have to sell him... But, nobody here can ride him the way he needs to be ridden and it's silly to keep paying a trainer under those circumstances. He needs an owner who will keep him going under saddle and get him into the ring and onto trails regularly. Otherwise he's just going to get bored.

I forgot to tell you all that Stevie took 2 blues and a red in his second test - one of the blues was in a jumping class and he'd only ever gone over the poles once before! The judge said his jumps were "sloppy" but he got the ribbon because he did what he was asked to do when every other horse in the ring balked or shied at something.

Stevie was showing at training level, yes. That was his first show ever under saddle, and he took it like a pro. His trainer says usually she's happy if the horse just stays in the ring, never mind scoring 67% (would've been a 70% but he stopped to poop in front of the judges' stand at the very end of his ride).

Elizabeth, If any of your horses go missing, don't look here!! Stevie looks great! Was he showing training level? He looks beautiful in that picture, look at the reach!!

Just an update. Jazzy has been home for almost a month now. I am absolutely in love with this filly. I can't wait until she is older. She is HUGE, I am hoping she finishes out 15.3hh. Anyway, here are a few recent pictures

Stevie took his first dressage test yesterday, won his first blue ribbon for performance! Here's a picture of him doing his thing.

That's Ray at just about the same age Pete is now - see the resemblance?
