    Equiniphile, I'm with Rob Rohrer. :) I recently switched to him from Kate at Hinkley Eq Center because he travels to my barn (and he has a ton of experience with OTTBs, hooray!). I'm over at Black Diamond Farm in Rittman, if you know of it.

    And yeah, I've been there before! I'll definitely try going there.

    Oh, really? I haven't taken lessons with him but have friends that have. He does lessons for the kids in our Pony Club. My friend just bought a mare from Hinckley, actually. Her name is Anne's Dancer, do you know her?

    Yeah, he's really cool. The Bath Pony Club? :)

    And yes, I do remember Annie! She's grey, right? I never rode her, I only rode Angelika (their dressage schoolmaster), but I remember seeing her in the barn. I would have snatched her up if I had the money!

    I actually just brought my new boy home today, I wouldn't trade him for the world! I got him from Double D Farm, the racing barn that burned down a couple years ago on 162 (off of Lafayette) if you know of it.

    Yep, Bath Pony Club. I just joined this year and it seems like a good group.

    Yes, Annie's gray. She was started in dressage at Hinckley but my friend's gearing her towards hunters. She's training with Carolynn at Stoney Ridge.

    Wow, I remember that barn. Such a shame! Would love to see pictures of your new boy.

    I've heard it's a good group too, I was never in it but I remember hearing great things. I guess you guys get to do some pretty fun stuff, like a shooting/riding/swimming triathlon or something like that? Seems awesome!

    I was at Stoney Ridge forever. I do like Carolynn, the hunters just wasn't my cup of tea.

    I was trying to upload them here but it wasn't working! I'll just post 'em.

    Wow, he's gorgeous! Good luck with him.

    I personally haven't done any of the triathlon events, the horses keep me plenty busy . Tessa's the one who bought Annie, you probably know her if you rode at STR for a while. I do know what you mean about hunters not being your thing; I do an STR show with Excel on occasion but just for fun.

    Thanks! I love him, he's such a good boy. He's a little pushy on the ground (he's only 3 and was just gelded a few months ago) so we've gotta work on that, but he's already so good under saddle even after only a few rides since he retired. We may pop over to a few fun shows just to get him used to the environment again.

    Actually I do know Tessa! I worked for her dad in their candy shop for a while, we rode together at STR and back at Willow Ridge. I went to school with her sister too. Small world!

    Excel is gorgeous by the way, what a great mover. Is he a TB too? He's all leg!

    Really? Small world is right! Did you know her when she had Oscar? Gosh, that was a while ago.

    Yep, Excel's TB all the way. Dealing with a lameness problem right now, but hoping to get it resolved with the vet Friday and get back into the swing of things.
