I'll have to surf around and see if I can find any.

I've said this a lot before, but some of you might have missed it. The black stallion shown above, Cadabra, has been exported to Canada and is being trained/competeing in reined cowhorse competitions. Apparently he is going quite well - It shows just how much in common the two disciplines have.

Thanks Smrobs - No one ever really understood what I do when I would mention showing, it is such a world away from normal showing here. I figured it would be good to get it out there - Plus I love my breed, so a bit of promotion doesn't go astray :]

Here is a video. This is Talawahl Double Image - A young ASH stallion. He is tricktrained and does a lot of demonstrations. The video has a mix of things - Tricks, a portion of a time trial, bridleless, and some campdrafting.

I love watching these classes at the ag shows I go to. A lot of the ASH's in my area always win the sporting classes. They're very talented.
We're actually looking for a new horse, and we've looked at 3 ASH'S. We're kinda unsure, just because I'd have to get a new saddle, and I've noticed the style they ride is ever-so slightly forward. And plus its a breed we've never had so we don't really know.
I love the whip-cracking. My old horse used to just jump whenever a twig crackled. I could never do anything like that on him.

That was an awesome vid . I especially like that many of the classes require the horse to slow down and do loose rein work after the speed portion. That takes a lot more balanced training than just teaching a horse to go fast.

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/
