Hey everyone, my name is Kalee. I live in Washington and just graduated from high school. I have two horses Pie and Peppy. My mare is a 15 yr old appendix. She was previously trained in 2nd level dressage and jumping 5 ft, but then her old owners decided to retrain her in barrels. Anyway so now we have problems goin into the show ring since she goes psycho. Peppy is a 14 yr old foundation quarter horse. He was trained all the way through reining, and has had a couple years of english. A while ago his owners sent him off to a stable to get worked and sold, but when they came to check on him he was completely emaciated. So they sent him back to the man who originally trained him, then he went to my bf's families. His aunt and uncle used to own him before they gave him to me. They couldnt keep weight on him because he constantly was cribbing, has major allergy problems (sweet itch etc), and didn't eat enough before the other horses finished their meal. He is low man in the herd and cribbed too much in between bites. Anyway I got him back to full weight, and started riding him. After only four rides I took him to a schooling show. But then he got put on the back burner trying to get Pie ready for fair. But he is back in training. I want to show him in reining this show season. I had my bf's sis help me learn his cues because I was having a hard time riding him. But we are good to go now, and I just got to get him in shape. As for Pie I will just be doing dressage shows with her so hopefully she relaxes a ton. She has always been hyped up, from people running her, jumping, or barrel racing. My goal is to be able to jump her at shows calmly. She is so calm all the time, wherever I take her. But it wasn't easy getting her to that point. Anyway I am talking to much.
Thanks for reading. Sorry for any misspellings, I didn't reread what I wrote. How do you post pics? I would love to show off my ponies.
