    Wink Sky month and half off track

    Here are some updated pictures of Sky. She is starting to fill out still has some to go but she is making progress I think. She is doing walk trot in the ring, she leg yields at the walk we are still working on it at the trot (I understand it is difficult for her she does try) We start off in the ring then move to the outside world up the road or down through the woods. My goal is to do the loop that takes you down through the creek back up to the road then come back around the block. Any suggestions on any other goals I should aim for before winter comes

    She looks great ! It looks like she's gaining some weight & getting fuzzy =] I would do as much riding outside/trail riding as possible before winter !

    Thanks that is my plan. She really enjoys her time out of the ring. I think it is good for her too. She loves to work and enjoys her daily workout. I look forward to seeing how she blossoms in the spring with some weight and muscle.

    Shes so skinny! But that's an OTTB for you, I guess. I have the same problem with my boy....his ribs just don't want to disappear.

    I guess just work on getting her leg cues as solid as possible before snow sets in and you have to take a break.

    Wow
    She is great and looks better already.
    I wish you all the best. I am sure your having a blast working with her.
    She looks a lot like my new girl. The pics of my girl are about 18 months old and I am now waiting for her to arrive to me!!!
    So exciting....best to you both!!

    Justsambam08: I really don't think she looks skinny at all. Racing weight and skinny are two entirely different things.

    She's looking wonderful! Your workout for her sounds great as well. :]

    Thanks, I am pretty proud of her progress. She just had the farrier out and she stood perfect (the previous owner stated I would need to twitch her for the back ) Thankfully I have an awesome Farrier (who happen to also be our best man in our wedding) who is going to do some corrective shoeing as the farrier at the track had her heals rolling in. So she is barefoot now and we will work on getting that fixed. Going out to ride today as the weather is nice. Gotta love northwestern Pa.

    Looking really good. I think you must just work on your current goals. Don't put too much on her at this stage. Let us know how it all goes.

    Does she have any Mr. Prospector in her bloodline? She looks like my Puck. Very pretty girl. The only other thing I would do with her, since you obviously want to event with her, is start exposing her to everything you can find. She's already used to a lot of weird things and noises from the track, so just things like tires, tarp, balls, and animals. At her age, the more she sees the better.

    She doesn't have any Mr. Prospector her lines go to Buckpasser, Northern Dancer, Nashua, Native Dancer, and Tom Rolfe.
    Thanks for the advice, I will have to look for a tarp, the tires and cones are around the farm and she does well with those, has been exposed to cows, the neighbors have all sorts of distractions. I wish I could take her to the show grounds to get use to the things all around a show day but darn winter is coming. She acts really level headed which I love she doesn't get too worked up about much. She crosses ditches and goes through water. There are dogs on the farm who are always running around and she doesn't mind them anymore.
