I think she's a stunningly beautiful horse!

I noticed in the still photos, it looks like your farrier leaves A LOT of heel. Perhaps even too much. If she isn't moving as well as she should, that could be part of the reason.

But as far as the horse goes, she is lovely!

Wow the more I watch your videos the more I get sooo jealous. You have a very nice boarding facilities to board or ride in, lucky to be riding I don't have anywhere to ride or a saddle yet for that matter....Nice horse.

@ Ladybugsgirl: Thanks! She is really a great horse, i love her to death :). Trust me NEVER thought i would be were i am. I used to be at a run down place with a tiny arena and dirt footing and a $150 saddle that squeaked every moment of the ride.... -_-

@ Trailhorserider: A lot of heel on the hoof or the shoe?? i know on her left front they leave a bit of a heal because she has some navicular changes.

@ Tinyliny: To the right we had problems... -_- now its to the left... this horse.. lol. Yah... she has gotten better, i was able to canter her today to the left with only a little hop and then she was to tense to the right for me to canter after the left canter.

Its felt awesome riding my trainers horse!!!!! She did grand prix with him so ill ride him and think of some of the cool movements like leg yeild, traverse, shoulder fore and a few others... And he does it not problem! Its weird cause if i want him to turn you just need to switch you weight, no leg or rein! And for him to stop just breathe out and he stops... I even tried not to sink in the saddle and breathe out to see if he would still do it and he did. And he is a 17.3 oldenburg so its like riding a semi truck! Lol! :) She might let me show him some 1st or 2nd level this year :)
