Wink Horse Forum Reunion with Hoofprints in the Sand

Stef, feel free to upload the videos you got of you two in the O/F classes!

Met up with Stefanie (HITS) at a hunter show yesterday and had a blast! The show was absolutely HUGE, so the same class that went off at 11 am last fall at the same show didn't start until 7 at night. It was nuts! Having gotten there before 8 in the morning, we let Sandy and Excel graze for most of the day in the shade.






Waiting by the arena, the dust was insane. Could barely see my horse



A few shots of him by the trailer in the morning:





Then I got incredibly bored waiting and braided him for the heck of it:

Stef showed first with Sandy in the Limit Rider 2' and did excellent for their first show! Pics:


















Then Excel and I went in our Novice 2'3" division, no pictures but Stef got some good videos. I was surprised that he got most of his correct leads when going over a jump, but on the flat he almost never picks up his right-hand lead:




In the Under Saddle and Eq classes, he was practically perfect until I asked for the right lead. Eventually I stopped bringing him to trot and trying it again because he was getting upset after not getting it multiple times in a row:

No problem! I had a blast. Aww, thanks . LOL, yeah, I think the dust might've been a little much for her. I'm watching the jumping trips again, and geez, I make my 16.2hh TB look tiny!

Yes, he's somewhat underweight right now. He gets half a bale of quality hay a day, 3 qts of SafeChoice and 3 qts of beet pulp three times a day, and great grass for at least four hours a day. I'm having the vet out to give me advice next week, actually, as he lost weight over the winter and doesn't seem to be gaining it back.

I think he looks pretty great. Beautiful shine, more "racing fit" than anything. Both of the horses are lovely!
