You will never guess who I am riding!
 
Well if you guys know drafts4ever then you know of her Clydesdale mare Caleigh. Yep you are thinking correctly, I am riding Caleigh now a couple times a week and going to start training dressage on her and taking her to shows with drafts4ever and her other mare Legacy :]

I know it looks like I am yanking on her face in some pics but that is because she likes to hang on the bit, we are working on it. These are from my first and second times riding her. The second ride was much more productive than the first :]

The first day I rode with jumper length stirrups in a dressage saddle but the second day I rode with dressage length stirrups since I need to start getting used to it. Will post most pics as I get them!

I'm not one to usually like drafts.. but he is gorgeous!!

ShutUpJoe 12-28-2010 12:00 PM

She's stunning!

drafts4ever 12-28-2010 12:17 PM

You posted pictures yay!!!

I do agree your second ride was more productive with her. Glad you are having fun with her! It really helps me out so I can focus on Legacy and not feel like I'm leaving out Caleigh. Thank you!

Haha Spinner and his licking obsession. It looks like it was putting Caleigh to sleep.

Thanks guys, she definitely is absolutely gorgeous. Her movement is nice too, can't wait to do some dressage with her. She had her moments of attitude but her little tantrums are so cute!

And again thank you drafts4ever for this amazing opportunity. I am glad to be able to ride with you and can't wait to do some shows :] Spinner is a goof ball, I have a funny picture of Faith doing her weird lip thing too lol.

She is the first draft I have ever ridden and I think I am in love lol. Going from small little skinny Arabs and Thoroughbreds to her has been crazy but awesome. I love it!

drafts4ever 12-29-2010 04:27 AM

once you go draft it's weird to go back. I've jumped on Caleigh and then right onto Jazz and it was HUGE difference.
I'll facebook you the show schedule for the schooling shows I so far plan on doing and if you want to ride her in any you're welcome to.

That's so exciting! I'm jealous, she's such a pretty girl. It's awesome that the Forum has connected you guys so that this all could happen! :D

Here are some pictures from my third ride on her :] I think we are getting better, what do you guys think?
