    With Grace, I don't know anything at all about English riding, but that looked pretty good to me. In western I would look for just a little more propulsion from the hindquarters and just a slightly more relaxed neck, but I think in English it's not the same? At any rate, very nice.

    Thanks, and yep she was only half collected there...and got behind the vertical as hubby so nicely let me know Morgans can be a little ahead of the vertical, but behind the vert is bad bad bad.

    Country woman, loved the dobie pups. I have a red dobie male, neutered of course and he is sooo sweet, dumb as a brick but such a big (over 100 lbs) sweetheart. He tolerated being Chloes first pony and even when she discovered his "weenie" and starts waving it back and forth asking what's this, he just layed there.
    I just hope if we ever needed it his protective instinct would kick in, at least after we woke him up.

    CW - I'm pretty sure you need one of those dobie pups. Thank goodness I'm in another country or I'd be trying to take one home!

    OK...sorry it took me a while to get to the computer.
    With Grace: She is beautiful and your riding is very good.
    Country Woman: Cute dobie.

    Diamond took two firsts (in equitation) and four second places.
    He would have taken the pleasure classes but I rode him in that western saddle and he was a little pacey and not as consistent in his gait. But he still took second.

    I need a gaited horse western saddle I guess...

    Grace: Great video. I can't wit til I can get a nice controlled canter outta hunter. Trot is nice but we are still working on the canter.

    CW: So did you meet the lady? What happened?????? I think the skinny horses you saw before may have been rehabs, these horses look ok. That barn is used as a foster place for one of the rescues and I doubt they would place there if it was a bad place.

    Had an awesome ride yesterday. He is such a little rock star! He is so well behaved for a four year old.

    Here's us on our ride.

    Susan- congrats on your placings! Diamond is gorgeous and you look great together! What us a gaited saddle? What will that do for you? I know very little about gaited horses.

    Hunter- love that picture you look so happy, what a good boy out on the trails.
