I don't think he looks that bad yes alittle skinny, but nothing serious. I think a few walk trot classes would be fine, as long as he gets a break between them and a good walking warmup. I don't think it would cause any harm

Thanks for the nice replt cutter!

I will be getting there at 8:15 to get a super long warm up and do last minute touch-ups. My first class should be at about 9:15-9:30. Haha, early bird gets the worm! ;]

Anyways, when I am not showing he will be at the trailer eating his hay and muching on Beet Pulp. He will get a very long break inbetween english and western, so that way he can regain some energy and such. (:

Good luck this weekend! Bear is super adorable and I think it's great that you rescued him.

Thanks Wintec. Bear ended up pulling a shoe the morning of the show, and no way would I show a horse that had 3 shoes, hehe. Anyways, I shows my western trainers mare western. We got 1st in eq. And 3rd in pleasure. She was super lazy, so I put my spurs on to wake her up a little (more like my trainer told me to) and then she didnt lope, he galloped, it was fun... ;]

Im sure Bear didnt mind, he got to stay out in the yard and eat tall, green grass all day!

Anyways, it might be that Bear and I wont be working for a while, lol. I am pulling his back shoes because his hooves are just not holding up to them well. I just have a gut feeling he will do better without them. So I am going to give him time to get used to have only front shoes, which will be interesting. So lets cross our fingers that he holds up to it well. But that will also give up lots of bonding time with eachother, which will be very good!

Yesterday when I got home from the show, he just touched noses with Junior for a minute then came right to me and gave me a bit "hug". So cute!

Great job! Too bad Bear couldn't go, I bet he would have done awesome! It always seems that the day before or even the day of the show something goes wrong, atleast for me anyways =) but atleast you still got to go. Good luck with Bear and we hope to hear more about him in the future!

Sorry to hear about your horse pulling a shoe the day of your show but Kudos to you for making a good choice (about the shoe) and not taking him : ) I hope you had fun on your trainers horse and congrats on getting first in your eq. Class.
