My Training Journal-- Tyhe- Through The Ages. =D

Alrighty..

So Im three months late on starting this thing, but what ever. If you dont know I got 3 months ago as a westurn horse that I am going to train for jumpers. He has always been used for versatility classes, and team pennig, and so his right lead is REALLY hard to get.This is him on a trial ride....



And here is a video of the same day.


He was in a huge shank bit, with 2 curb chains, and a good amount of tongue relief.

He was nervous and shaky, and very prancy and afriad to move forward.

I brought him home, and we put him in a loose ring 3-piece, and he was --okay-- with it, but it had no tongue relief. So this is about a month of him being with me....






^^^^^^^^^^^Notice what lead we are on!!!!!


And lastly this picture cause its pretty



All right, so after a while in this era we began jumping (his first 2 jumps)... I know my release is not great here, so no comments.






Alright so after this we changed into a broken pelham, didn't last long.

So we went into a ported kimberwick, and that did us pretty well. We learned how to do simple changes well, and courses with changes(not on the flat strangly enough)

And this is how we are (sorry no flat)







One month later.....
(current)


And 2 days ago I switched him yet again to a D-ring, ported 3 piece which he does well in, I'll add an update and more pictures when the ring is dry from the flooding!

I dont know anything about jumping, honestly, but it looks like you two are moving forward in many ways! your bond looks closer, he looks more comfortable and your jumps look awesome! And not to mention how BEAUTIFUL he is! If I were every two get a paint again, I would prefer to get a minimal white dark bay overo! beautifull! I bet he'll lighten up when he sheds out.
Keep it up!
Makes me want to do jumping... and start a training journal! I have a filly thats going on 3 that I am training. I want to post here to get advice and such but I hate when people try to talk down to me and say that I shouldnt be training a horse. Pah, they really have know idea if I am qualified or not, because they dont know me. Ha. Anyways.. Good luck!!

I must say...WOW...what a transformation!!!

He still looks a bit bracey, and I'm sure you are looking foward to getting rid of the martingale and figure 8, but he looks emmensely changed already...great job with him!

1)He is actually a Registered black and white overo. He is still getting darker, and hes fully shedded!

2)Do It!!!!!!!!! Its fun to watch your own progress from a different prospective.

3)People can be so... ignorant, to say the least....

4) Thank you, and good luck to you!!!

BMunch and SarahHershey:

B -- best said by Clinton Anderson himself: "Developing your horse requires, above all else, long rides, wet saddle blankets and concentrated training. There are no magic methods or equipment. You must put in the time to get the results you desire." And "It helps to remember too, that failure is just a stepping stone to success. The times I've been bucked off are the times I've learned the most - how to do it better next time. Turn every negative into a positive - meaning you learn the implied lesson - and you'll eventually achieve your training goals."
(Note how many times he uses "you")

And I am all there with you. You can have all the education in training that you want, but there's no test like putting that knowledge into action and seeing your efforts pay off!! (My advice is a scrapbook of notes. I've compiled quite a bit of 'tidbits' to aid in my new journey that is training; from activities to ailments/preventions/solutions.) :) Best of luck with your filly!!

Sarah -- He's absolutely beautiful and the pictures are amazing. The two of you make a great team! Shoot for the stars!! :)

That is exactly my inspiration everyday I get on and ride. I love his philosophy on if you ride one 2-4 hour ride every week, and vary the rest of the ride times, they learn to pace themselves because they never know when the ride will be over. BMunch- Use that and live by it every time you ride, you see an immediate difference in your filly.

Thank you! Were hoping to do a jumper show this month, and novice level eventing by June or July.



UPDATE: Rode him again in the new bit, and he was a saint. He wasn't heavy, and he respected it. He actually open his stride and stepped out, and was relaxed on the bit. I am VERY excited. OH!! and we had NO
wrong leads!!

UPDATE: today we rode WITHOUT the running martingale, and he was fantastic. We also worked on getting on the bit, and pacing ourselves. He did great, and is learning, that when he gives in to the bit, the bit gives to him. :) And we also had some good jumps with a nice even pace before and after the jump/line. :)
