    More pictures of Thumper from last Saturday :). He was okay- not great, but not bad either. He was a little distracted because we were riding in the outdoor arena and there were horses in the rough board pasture, which is right next to the arena. So he didn't entirely pay attention to me. I probably could have done more to try and encourage him to focus on me and the job at hand... Anyway here are the pictures!

    I love his mane in this picture :)- I put Cowboy Magic Detangler in it the day before so it was beautiful :). (I swear by cowboy magic lol)

    ^^I love this picture of Tumps :) ^^

    My friend brought her clippers out to the barn last Friday, so I clipped his muzzle, fetlocks, and around his hooves. I just got the tufts off of his ears but he doesn't like the clippers near his ears so I just left them for the most part.

    I forgot to add: when I was at the barn last week, Thumper's old owner came to visit him! She told us the story about the big scar on Thumper's chest. Apparently when he was younger, he was in the pasture and somehow got impaled by a fence board (not exactly sure how that happened :S- she's not either; she said it happened before she owned him). It just barely missed his heart and was poking out one side of his barrel. He had to be in the vet hospital for almost a year! I for one am very thankful that he was okay. I think Tumps wins the medal for most scars on a horse- he's covered in them :).

    Here is his chest scar...

    It's kind of hard to see- it's that darker spot above and to the left of his right leg.

    Aww thanks! I'm excited to show Tumps this weekend :). The schooling show has more people this time! I also get to ride my instructor's horse, Bailey, in Training 4, Hunters, and Equitation! I'm so excited- he's a great horse to learn from and is tons of fun :). Heehee here are some pictures of Bailey (even though this is Thumper's photo thread)...

    He's the horse in this picture...

    My instructor rode him on the US team in Sweden and when she was an alternate for the US team in Luxembourg. My instructor's riding him in all the photos.

    Here's a couple more from my barn's "photoshoot"...

    Sorry for the double post but... I might take some pictures tomorrow of Thumper if I just go groom and clip him- he doesn't have a bridle path right now so I'll probably do that if he lets me :).

    Today was the Hunter/Jumper show! I rode Thumper in Walk/Trot Hunters and we got 2nd! I was so proud of him- one of the barn instructors who was watching said he was just looking around like "Am I doing this right? Am I doing it?" I was so so proud <3. Then I rode Bailey in Youth Equitation Over Fences and Novice Hunter Over Fences, and I got 1st in Equitation and 2nd in Hunters. So yeah, it was a pretty good day :). Tomorrow I'll do the dressage. Here are the pictures of my beautiful boy...

    My attemp at a tail braid lol...

    My running braid, which fell out before our class :(. Tumps insisted upon eating grass...

    Our Hunters class...

    His 2nd place! Ignore me lol I had been at the barn all day...

    My show crew (a.k.a. Mom, Dad, and me)- I had to untack Thumper and get on Bailey right away. I don't know what I would do without them :).

    So today I rode Thumper in Intro Dressage A and B. He was okay for the first test for the most part... until the end when he ignored me going down the long side and went out of the arena :(. Oh well- the rest of it was good for Thumper standards :). The Intro B sucked- he was tense the entire time and REALLY hollow- at least I got some good insight from the judge so I know what to work on for BOTH of us :). We were disqualified, or "excused", in Intro A but in Intro B- which was not all that great- we got only 51.60%. Oh well- we'll do better in the October show!

    Starting to hollow out...

    I was amazed that he did a nice, SQUARE halt!

    I was so proud of him!

    I rode him again yesterday, and we focused on staying RELAXED. He did one decent leg-yield and one decent turn-on-the-forehand; sadly no pictures of those. Anyway he was great today- he only hollowed out near the end when he his internal work timer went off :).

    I don't know about anyone else, but I can see a big difference in his muscles from when I first began riding him.

    YAY he stayed relaxed during our sitting trot! That's a first :).

    He was great yesterday :).

    Sorry for the double post but... here's a picture of Thumper from when I was first riding him. I think there's a huge difference...
