Then the time a week or so ago that I won my class. That was fun also. Not b/c I won but again b/c I was at a horse show with friends and having a good time.

First I am going to day that there are probably very few people on this board who have access to the horses needed to do something like this. I know that most of mine are sold long before they are started. Last 2 where sold before the mare was ever bred. Next years foals are sold too. What is left is well trained finished horses that are now in my broodmare band.


Is the training fun? Sometimes it is and sometimes not so much. I personally prefer the breeding end. With out good breeders trainers and other owners would not have good horse to train show and just use. I get more out of watching my foals go on to new owners and win for them. Same with the ones I keep. I enjoy watching them win more then I do winning on them my self.

Also if you enjoy putting your self out there lest see some pictures of your horses. Pictures of you riding. We all love pictures.
ok now! My mistake, is that you in your avatar?

Fun, together, community, learning, and some cases humbling or just plan humilating.
So you going to organize it all? So far you just talk and don't try to organize anything even though several people expressed the interest!

That picture is my trainer. The others I have had up are me or the assistant trainer.

I have never shown, but then again, I really don't have much interest in it. I imagine it would be really fun to bum a ride off one of NRHA's good reining horses , but doing that for a living? Nuh-uh. I have been in a few rodeos and ranch rodeos, been to a lot of ranch brandings and large gathers, weaning times, and separating the bulls. Not much call for a show horse on the ranch and not much call for a ranch horse in the show ring.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Come on over and take a spin. Literally.

All my show horses could do a days work on a ranch rounding up cattle and branding. They would actually love it.

If I'm ever in your area, I might. It's been many years since I rode a good reining horse and even then, I couldn't really appreciate it because I was still just a kid.

Use them on the ranch though? Eek, I would be too terrified of getting them hurt or scarred up. Ours are not such a big deal if they get some scars and look ugly, a show horse though? I cringe at the thought LOL.

They just love it. Matter of fact I am looking at Chic Please next year for this mare b/c of his record in NRHA and NRCHA.

That picture was taken at that mares second NRCHA show. She had no real cow training. Bill put her on cattle the night before he decided to take her to a NRCHA show. The only time that mare has been defeated in NRCHA was in the mud. She hates mud. However I think I have her over that now.

That's one of the wonderful things about many of the performance bred QHs, they really can do anything; cutting, reining, working cow horse, roping, etc.

I'd love to try working cow horse - never had a chance unfortunately (couldn't find such thing in MD). I tried competing reining horse though (there is one big barn specializing on it) and while it was a great lesson and very nice horse, I realized that one is not for me (it was on boring side - just same thing over and over and over, not just for me, but trainers did the same ).

I would consider a reining horse the prodigy of a great western horse though, reining is there showy time, but the skill set they know for reining will make them excel at anything if they have cow sense.
