    Scenestorm, I have to admit I could feel your happiness, that is really is something to brag about! I would like to do that someday, but I would start in a small paddock! Thanks for sharing!

    Ok so my 3 yr old warmblood filly has been under saddle for about 6 months now lightly and just went to her first event this weekend. She was being ridden by someone else since I am still building my confidence over jumps and I want her to have a very solid foundation so my friend heidi rode her. They were FANTASTIC!!! She did grasshopper (for those not familiar its 18" or less for jumps and just walk trot in dressage) and she ended up 4th out of 10 on sat and 2nd out of 7 on sun!! She did SO GOOD. She traveled well and setteled right in. She ate well and drank well and even trailered fantastically and it was only her 4th trailer ride ever!!! LOVE MY LITTLE GIRL!!!!

    Ok feel better now. Sorry for the excitment

    Okay I'm really happy with my little mare.
    I started riding Relana during the winter. She's been amazing and super calm and never tried to buck or do anything. I got to the point where I ride her without any tack at all, without a halter or anything after I ride her. She loves it she just goes trotting around like an old pro. So I haven't been able to ride her alot(around a month) because I have been riding so many other horses. So I decided to lunge her the other day just to get her back into work. When I was done lunging her my trainer said "why don't you try riding her bareback again?" So I decided to jump on her and go around to see what would happen. She was PERFECT! She was steering off my body, not trying to spook or do anything bad. She loves being worked. I was so proud of her she's perfect. My angel, now that I have her I can't imagine not owning her.

    My horse Henry is 10 and I have had him for 4 years. The trainers from which we purchased him had NO idea how to do a lead change and completely ruined him for them to the point where you could not even cut across a diagonal or he would freak out. After 5 months of slow flatwork, a much softer bit, and dressage training, he is now able to do a flying change without sprinting across the ring in fear. We have a long ways to go, but I am so proud of us:). I love that little boy.

    Well, this is a little old now, but Aires had his first ride two weeks ago tomorrow (can't believe it's been that long! Lol). He did AMAZING! The trainer at our stable was the first to ride him and she said he was a dream. The BO led him around with the trainer mounted for about five minutes so Aires could get the concept of turning, walking forward on command and stopping. Then the BO unclipped the lead rope and they were on their own. Aires was responding to direct reining (no plow reining for my boy!), a little neck reining, AND he was actually working off leg cues to stay to the outside "rail" of the round pen. She then got off him (he stood like a rock while she dismounted) and remounted a few seconds later. He stood like a rock again to be mounted and they took another few trips around the round pen, then walked out through the gate (stopped twice and he did great), and then walked all the way over to the hitching rails. The trainer dismounted again (no one holding him at all) and he stood like a rock again. Sooooo proud of my baby boy!! Also, found out the other day that he absolutely LOVES and responds REALLY well to a french link snaffle. Lightest touch and he responds beautifully and immediately.

    I bought a horse and took him to a show two days later and we placed 3rd out of 20 ish. I was very proud
    My other boy will walk, halt, jot, lope and gallop with voice only while on or off him
