Riding Lenox & Arthur Western

I've been cramming, cramming, cramming for fair, waking up at 6:30 to ride all four horses before my mom leaves for work. Here's a few videos of Artie and Lenox Western. Lenox will be doing Western Pleasure w/t, Western Horsemanship w/t, and Trail w/t; my mom bought her in November to be her trail horse and I've put a lot of work into this mare. Arthur, my 24-yr old Paso Fino, has been schooling reining, which we were planning to compete in until I noticed that the rules stated gaited horses could only enter showmanship, trail, easy-gaited, and fun classes. That p*ssed me off, so I wrote a letter to Horse Council, backed up by my uncle and aunt who bring reiners to Nationals, stating my gaited horse is not prohibited by his gait in the lope, turn, or back, and that the NRHA allows horses of any breed to enter. I mean, a Saddlebred entered reining last year. I got a phone call back stating they still could not allow us to enter, and that I would have to be at the meeting in October which decides on rules for next year's fair if I wanted to help change that rule. Anyway, Arthur will only be doing easy-gaited eq & pleasure, egg&spoon, trail, and phone book race this year.

Ugh, I didn't mean to write a novel. Here's Arthur from two days this week:


And Lenox from today:

It peeves me when people discriminate against gaited horses. You don't even use a middle gait in reining, no? So there isn't too much logic in banning a horse because of it.



Lenox is pretty. I love her build and color. Arthur's got my respect, as usual. Such a sweet old boy.

Thanks. I totally agree about discriminating against gaited horses....so glad I'm going to help change that.

Artie's such a sweetie; I actually figured out how to make him gait instead of pace! He starts out in a 4-beat gait, but gets lazy if you let him extend so much, so he slips into that lateral gait. If I squeeze the reins and bump him with my feet, he goes right back down to the good gait...I'll have to get a video.

I love Lenox; I hope she does well on Wednesday. She still needs to lose a ton of weight, but I can definitely tell her fitness is improving the more I ride her. When we got her, you couldn't trot for 2 minutes without her breaking into a sweat, and now I can hack her for 20 minutes at a trot and canter with her barely breaking a sweat.
