    Stallion Parade

    Okay, so the stallion parade happened on Mother's day. Dez did really well overall. He of course has plenty to work on, but I was pretty happy with him as MOST of the other stallions were only shown in hand.

    The handler of the stallion that went after me actually hit his 3 year old TWH stallion in the head repeatedly in the ring - in front of the crowd - I hope something was done to that man! I did not actually see it because I was walking back to the barns with Dez, but several others told me about it. is a link to the video of my routine. Like I said, it was far from perfect, but I was really happy anyway. It was Dez' 4th ride in the curb bit, and he did get distracted right before going in by a lovely mare at the gate (ahh - one hopes that maturity will help this :) ). I know his spins or shall we call what he did pivots need miles of work, as do his rollbacks. I also know there were some issues with leads. I guess I would just appreciate anything you see that can be improved, and maybe tips to make those improvements. I would especially like to have anything pointed out that I might be doing to detract from our performance. :) Thanks guys :) - FIXED IT!! :) :)
    The routine had to be broken into two videos on photobucket because it was like 6 minutes long. It is the two labeled "stallion Par..." The second one is 1st (labeled stallion parade 1) and the first one is second (labeled stallion parade 2).

    I'm glad that it went well for you and Dez.

    I hope that man got a stern talking to by someone

    I think you guys looked really good!

    There were a couple sliding stops that looked amazing! And I loved the bridleless/bareback that you did!

    And I also loved how he kept whinnying. That was so cute!

    His turns weren't horrible. He has the idea, just needs some speed, which you know. It looked like the two of you really enjoyed each other!

    I can't wait to see videos of him when he gets even better

    Edited to change a word.

    Wow.. great rides! I can't critique because I know zip about reining, but what a great pair you two are! I loved the bridleless video - stunning. This is a horse worthy of being called a stallion.
