    I came to this thread late but am really looking forward to hearing a recap of your weekend Taffy. What a handsome boy Pilgrim is!

    Those are a team of belgian draft horses. He drove them two at a time and then drove them as a four in hand. They were great to watch.

    Thanks so much for posting more pictures of the Belgians! I love them :)
    I don't think I've ever seen a roan Belgian before!



    Pilgrim looks so handsome!! And like he was really focused on his work! What a good man :)



    So are you happy with your performance? Did it turn out as you had hoped? I hope you are inspired to keep working with him and go to more CDEs. I've loved following you on your path to this one! I hope there are more in your and Pilgrim's future

    We had a blast!!! I was hoping to get my dressage and cones class videos posted by now, but my groom is doing it for me ,and I have no idea how to do it.I will post the link when they are on you tube.

    Untill then We had a great time.

    It was so much fun seeing my friend from KC, and Mom had a great time too. Mom is trying to talk me into going to the KC, MO CDE in Sept. My groom was awsome I couldn't have done the marathon with no penalties without her.

    So in dressage we got 7th place, in cones we got 5th place which put us in 6th place. On Sunday we got 1st place along with 3 other single horses. SOOOOOO we got 4th over all. I was very pleased. Pilgrim was a good boy, he worked his heart out on the marathon, dressage was a different story.

    I will talk about dressage when I post it on you tube.

    What a great day to drive today. We drove an hour and a half, it was 70 degrees with a light wind and sunny. I went by myself but I did have a Sunday morning Mimosa with me, but, best thing, Pilgrim was perfect.

    Pilgrim and I had a long lining lesson last friday. He did very well, I don't know if he has ever been "long lined" before. I have ground driven him plenty but the instructor was making him work. He got a little irritated when he went to the right.

    And he went to the dentist Thursday, Busy week.


    We haven't done ANYTHING since the CDE because of the weather. 100 plus is just too hot. WE are now back in the harness getting ready to head to another event, not a CDE just a fun drive, no competition and no schedules, just for fun! A 5 day fun drive. I can't wait!!
