Pics of my Mare at the trainers!!!

Hi all.
I had the pleasure of going out to the trainers after my lesson today. I was so excited to see my girl!!!
She was so good. She was happy to see me and just wanted to put her head in my chest so I could scratch her ears!
He lounged her first and then got on her. He is working on getting her to take the correct lead tracking right.
She was a very good girl and he had nothing but great stuff to say about her.
So here are the pics!!
I don't think I am uploading them in the right order but I don't think it matters!
I have more photo's ... I will post those tomorrow when I get to my parents home for Christmas.
I am so excited for her.
He says he really feels she has a good mind about her and she is smart.
It got real windy there and it was really cold so we cut things short and i came home. I did take a few short snipits of video, but because it was so cold I felt it easier to take photo's plus...I have not figured out the video stuff yet.
Anyway...let me know what you think! I am going to look into finding a saddle other than a dressage saddle. I am going to be getting a really nice dressage saddle but now I also want a saddle so I can take her to some hunter shows!
Yay for us.
I was so impressed with how this man works with her and the others. Such wonderful patience and he is so easy going. Very nice guy.
I love the last pic!

Thanks so much! i too am really falling for her. When she was about2 1/2 I thought she was a bit crazy. She was always bouncing around...bucking and rolling her eyes...She was just bored! She still likes well...loves to play, but she has become a bit more settled. No more rolling eyes etc.
She is such a sweet love.
I too am very excted. I will post more pics soon. When I come back from Christmas with my folks I will take another trip and take more photos. He does plan to start her over fences as well.. I can not WAIT to see how she jumps!

YAY! Those pics are awesome HP. I love Candi and if she mysteriously does not come home from the trainers, don't check Kansas ;)

I am excited to see how she jumps as well!

Look like a SUPERSTAR, Ride like a FOUR STAR, Win like a ROCKSTAR

She is quite the looker. Must be really exciting to see her get more and more training. Looking forwards to seeing more pictures and seeing how she does.
Have a good Christmas!

Thanks everyone.
I am very very excited for her too. I let my instructor know I am looking for another saddle besides my Custom dressage saddle. I would like to have another english saddle to use for hunters and later do some jumping.
Here are more from yesterday.
ooopppsss a few repeats

Wow, she is gorgeous and looks like she is making wonderful progress. He is doing a good job with her. I love this pic.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
