I finally got some pix of my Percheron "Big John". They are not really good because he was following me around and so I was walking backward most of the time to get the pix. The one on the bottom is of him and my QH Denny who is 15.3 hh. You think John is going to be big? LOL He is only a coming 4 year old right now. Woo Hoo, only 2 more years of growing then I break him to ride. :/

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I have a couple of recent shots from our last show of the season. Quiet moment between me and my boy. Blew this up for hubby for Christmas



And this is during our hunter portion of the show, I think we were at 2'6 at this point.



And the final shot, which I just LOVE



Sorry a bit overposted, but I can't help it, I love my boy, and this photographer, was just so kind to take these shots for me, just out of the blue, as she was taking shots of her friend there.

Beautiful! Were you showing him in-hand as well? If not, why did you roll his mane rather than doing hunter braids?

Also, how do you usually pin? I'm assuming you wouldn't be showing if you weren't, but I always thought that there would be discrimination against drafts and any other horses that don't fit the typical hunter profile.

I wasn't showing in hand at this show, there is only really one show a year that we can show him in hand. We know we have our cards stacked against us in Hunter, so we just use it as a schooling session more then anything for our Jumper class. I rarely place in Hunter, but I did place in Hunter Eq (which is shocking because my Eq is horrible) in this show.

I had the mane roll in, because, I thought **** - its a clydesdale, so lets go all dressed up instead of little braids (which I hate doing). I was going to do the roll without the picks, but then my coach and friends saw them in the truck and loved them - plus the bottom one, ensured I wasn't jumping ahead of him.

There is total discrimination against us, but now that I understand it - I've learned to deal with it, which is why we usually show in Jumper classes only now. There is no flat knee action happening here! I haven't gotten used to the nasty statements I occassionally hear from other competitors and spectators, but I understand that a judge would have a hard time placing us in this kind of show.

He's 18hh, and I'm 5'0, so I am rather small, and have become very barn blind to his height, as I see him as rather short.

Painted Ride - if you lived close by I'd let you ride him. I've had one lady request to ride him as part of her Bucket List, and we arranged for that. She thought she was just going to be lead lined, but my coach was there, and we had her ride on her own, walk, trot, canter and warm him up for me for my lesson.

He loves to jump, he's the one that started it all by jumping out of his paddocks and jumping over anything he could find, so I figured I might as well let him do what he wishes. When we go out there, you can feel him fire up and get all excited as soon as he see's the standards out. This was definitely me fullfilling his wishes, as I had never wanted to jump prior to this... now we are both addicted.

Beautiful horses!

OzzysMom, I feel your pain! I grew up showing Standardbreds. No matter how well the horse did, it never looked right in there with the warmbloods and show ponies. Oh well, we had fun :)

Thanks for the info. I'd love to jump my percheron mare, but I don't think she'd be too excited about it.

Because of some breed discriminations I stay clear of certain shows that are put on by certain breeds that tend to be more nasty then most. Although I'm competitive, I try to only compete against myself. If I show a clean round then it doesn't matter if I pin or not, I'm THRILLED. With the exception of a few naysayers (who are probably miserable at the best of times) he tends to be the crowd favorite, so any good effort is always rewarded. Ribbons and placings just make the dessert that much sweeter
