The Twinkie Files -pics-

Decided I'd start a journal about My all mighty Twinkie horse.

First off I'll tell you alittle about myself. Im about to turn 20yro. Twinkie is my fourth horse and is my baby. I'v been barrel racing for six years, i'v won buckles and money doing that. Now that I have Twinkie iv started reining, cutting and sorting though I still do some barrels. I'v had Twinkie for almost three years now.


Now for Twinkie, his registered name is Way Bueno, his sire is Master Jay and his dam is Buena Seca. He was bred and owned by Sterling Ranch home of the great Tinsel Nick. He was passed on to, two diffrent showing homes then to my roomate. My roomate kept him for about two years and did barrels with him. Only problem was she took him way to fast on barrels and blew him up, she's a very nice girl and a very good rider but she just wants to go fast and because Twinkie turned on a dime it was easy for her to do that. She also would do slides stop with him without skid boots protecting him. When I got him I had to slow him down alot and bring him back up. Nowadays he is a really calm horse as long as his rider aka me stays calm. He is very zippity though and quick to get hot. He's a good boy that tries extremely hard, but sometimes to hard. Overall he is just a very big hearted boy who doesnt wanna do anything wrong ever.



So our goal right now is Twinkie and I are going to take a break from barrel racing and gymkhanas and focus on reining. I got in contact with the lady who sold him to my roomate and she is going to be giving me free reining lessons on him whenever I want and get me and him showing. We took a lesson with her on saturday and it was amazing, since it was our first lesson she rode him most the time, mainly because she missed him ALOT and she was showing me some good warm ups for the spin on him. It was an overall fun good day im glad we went.


Another thing I thought was awesome was the lady who owns the ranch I board him at is a good friend of mine and my moms, and she has kinda given me a old reining saddle of hers that she hasnt touched in twenty years. She's not really giving it to me but letting me use it for as long as I want.


I guess that will be all for now, Ill post a couple pics of Twink then update after I ride him today.

Tonights update. 8.16.10


Tonight I did a lot of bending and circling with Twinkie. Getting him supple and bending at the pole nicely. He is one of those who you need to remind to keep his head in the correct position a couple times over. Then we did some counter cantering in circles and figures 8's.

Big thing for tonight.
Twinkie is a horrible lead changer, he is really good about doing it when you ask but only changes his front end. Even his old owner who showed and trained him had issues with it this is what she said "He was a horse that when showing you just kinda went for it and if you got it then went with it". He just doesnt switch his back legs that well. So tonight I wanted to work on it, so I got him collected so his back was up and got control of his hips and asked for it and got it in the first try!

So tonight was successful.

Does he normally work up into a sweat, my mare is a sweat bath by the time we're done working, now she's not in the best of shape, so is this something that will just come as she gets more and more in shape? She's only 3 months into training, and still gaining weight...

It takes alot for Twinkie to work up a swet, but he is in extremely good shape. As your mare gets worked more, she will begin to go longer without sweating. But it takes alot of concistant riding. Twinkie got injured about a year and ahalf ago and when I started riding him again three months later just trotting aroudn the arena a couple times got him almost soakin wet. It just takes time, and some horses will always swet. My retired barrel horse was in good shape but swet very easily.

Today was a pretty bad day. Last night I had a dream something bad happened to Twinkie. And today something did. Well we were loping around the arena to get a workout in before the chiropractor worked on him. My mom and chiropractor were on the outside of the arena working on my moms horse. I went to the middle of the arena and asked for a lead change, and all of a sudden his front end went down and before I knew it I got flown from the saddle and onto the ground, I looked back but couldnt really see what he was doing because all the dust so I yelled his name out so he would know where I was when he got up. He had completely somersaulted and when he heard my voice he cut away from me instead of running me over. I got up and yelled ho so he would stop then grabbed him, untacked him, and started rinsing out all the cuts. My mom called our friend Nancy to come over and helps us take care of them. After I was done rinsing them the chiropractor did her work. Then Nancy came over helped us clean and wrap wounds then we traileder him to her place. Heres the pics.
