Red face Okay, I have to brag just a tiny bit.

This is Prissy, she is a 3 year old APHA filly that belongs to a friend of mine. I agreed to get her started for him back in April and when he brought her up, I ended up riding her 5 or 6 times then. Unfortunately, between work, other responsibilities, and this being the hottest summer that I can ever remember, I didn't do much with her after that. She just kinda sat around putting on weight and filling out some. She is an odd type of horse, not like any other that I have ever dealt with before. She was really challenging and willing to fight at the drop of a hat. If she got confused, she would start resisting so I had to kinda change my game plan from what I have used on other horses.

Anyway, here are a couple of pix from when I rode her in April.







And here are a couple of her from almost the last time that I rode her.
(nobody else was home to take pix of me on her)





She is a very smart little filly and never offered to buck even when she was fighting me.

Here is a couple of vids of the very last time that I rode her (don't mind her head bobbing, those little flies and noseeums were about to eat us both alive). She had been saddled/messed with a total of maybe 11 times. She was neck reining really well for the most part and had a wonderful flat canter. Her trot was a little odd but I don't think that will change much with time. Anyway, her owner took her home and spent about 2 hours riding the other day and loves her. We'll see if he continues after the first time she jumps out from under him . She is incredibly quick on her feet and will booger at the oddest things. It will only take her about .002 seconds to move 15 feet to one side when she sees a boogeyman in the bushes but that is something that owner will have to work out with time and miles.




I am just pretty darn proud cause I think I did okay for only 11 rides.

Still working on the whole walk a straight line thing though. LOL Needs a few hundred more miles before she gets that figured out. ;p

Good job. I wish you had been working closer to the camera.......She's got a good stop on her and I like that you incorporate a bend to the stop into the ride.

Thanks guys. I may or may not end up with some updates on her. She went back to her owner the day after I took the videos. I gave explicit instructions that she needed to be ridden every day and I don't think he has even tried to catch her since that first time he rode her. It is really frustrating to see a horse with so much potential just turned out to pasture after he spent the money to have her trained. }:( But I guess there is not much I can do about it, I did my part and now everything else is up to him.

Now I can't wait to find another project to fiddle with until Rafe grows up. :)
