Late pics from my trip to my uncle's reining ranch

My uncle and aunt have a reining ranch in Colorado where they own a stallion and many mares and geldings. They show in the arab show ring. Most are reining-trained, and one of his mares was ranked 8th nationally in the Arabian show ring. They own all arabs/arab crosses, and I got to ride all of them with the exception of the 7 retired mares living out their lives in the back pasture. My favorite of their horses is a National Show Horse mare named Southern Grace. Here's pics!

My uncle's stallion, Rambin Mr. V., in one of the pens. He's a full-blooded arabian and a spectacular reiner I got to ride. His stops and spins are amazing:













Look at that long mane!

Meet Estrella, a great reiner and English horse. She was rated 8th in the country last year in the Arab show ring for reining and has won many halter awards.









Kraklin' Rose, a nice little reiner who was shipped down to a surgery center because of an eye injury a few years ago.

Psycret (pronounced Secret), who's turning into a nice Western Pleasure gelding.







Maserati "Mozzie" is a country English Pleasure horse with great knee action and is very responsive to aids.






El Khapitan "Khappy" is a gray out of Estrella's sister, Silver Belle. They're uncertain as to which way Khappy's going to go at this point, but it looks like he'll be specializing in Western Pleasure.




Below, he's the dark gray. My little sister's on him

Little Lizzie is a sweet little girl who's still young and learning, also a reiner with a nice spin on her. She's a doll and loves being pet, running to the pasture gate when you come out.






Southern Grace, my favorite girl, is a 13-yr old National Show Horse (arab/saddlebred cross) and does English Pleasure.

Gorgeous herd there. Looks like you had fun.

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/
