What a giggle! we all clicked on the romance topic, and here we are talking horses! I'd like to meet and learn new trails anywhere in the New England States. I live on the coast, near Boston, and there's a great network of trails in my town. I'll show you mine if you'd like to see it, then we can ride your favorite trails near your home. I like to show, also. Any nice, small pleasure shows near you? Thanks, All and happy hunting.
That's cool about the freestyle dressage and reining to music. I think it makes it a lot more interesting - especially if you pick some cool tunes. My horse didn't seem to take to dressage - but she perks it up for jumping! Don't think she could do what that Aussie's horse did, though! : ) Don't think any horse could do that! It's amazing!
hey southernson! i think what your father did is amazing! i do routines to music with my horses in dressage and reining, and i've always wanted to spice up my routines by teaching my horse to bow or rear on command. it must be neat to be able to teach a horse to do something like that!
The horse jumping the ute of hay, is SCHWANDOR 2 a holstien stallion my father bred . He was a magic horse that fella ,jumped upto 8ft high in his time and would do the dresarge test by command ,all without a rider. My father used to have a traviling road show with up to 29 ,trick and performing horses in the group(many were stallions).He was Called THE ALCHERINGAS SPANISH DANCING HORSES, and travelled around australias east coast, And if i can breed horses half as good as schwandor2 ,they will be unbeatable
cheers for now , southernson
Hello Southernson. What's up with the jumping horse in your profile?! The bay is absolutely beautiful!!! How did you get that shine? I have a gray and it's tough getting a little shine on her. Oh well, breeding her to a bay with the hope of getting a bay!
Blueeyejerseyboy, you're living my DREAM! I should have pursued horses right out of high school but chose a different route instead. To all you young-uns, DO IT NOW! DON'T WAIT! I recently completed my associates from SUNY Morrisville in Equine Sciences and would eventually like to pursue some type of career involving horses. Maybe get into breeding or something. I have a beautiful, sweet TB mare that I am breeding to a warmblood this month. Hope all goes well. Because of her, I love mares and have been told several times I'm nuts! I guess that's why I want to get into breeding. Well, hope to chat w/you all soon.
By the way, any cute, single horsemen my age in Central NY?
hello all, thought i'd reply to jumperchicks question about employment. we not only sell in ocala, fl. we also go to lexington, saratoga, timonium (baltimore), texas and california. sales last from 2-3 weeks and then your free for a couple of weeks until the next one comes around. most consignors supply motel rooms and two meals a day. it's hard work but it's a lot of fun and you meet some really interesting people. i've met people like george steinbrenner, d wayne lukas, todd pletcher and a saudi prince. i've handled some of the best and most beautiful horses in the world including a yearling colt by unbridled, out of serena's song that sold for 5.7 million at last years keeneland sale and cliffs edge that ran third in the derby last year even after losing two shoes.
