About BeauI've had Beau since he was 4 years old. He was bred in Pennsylvania and went through a few owners until my trainer bought him as a resale project. I was often put on him for training rides and lessons and became attached to him. When I bought him he still didn't know much, and for a while I thought he would never make it as anything but a trail horse... His dressage was terrible, no brakes, no submission, no matter what ANY rider did. He was also scared to jump ANYTHING.

With a lot of work and outings to shows, schoolings and lessons, he came around. He was a diamond in the rough and now does just about anything you ask him to. I got a great deal on him since he turned out to be such a nice boy.

He's by Forward Observer, out of Prissy Dolly Pine (Jack Pine Lee)
ActivitiesBeau and I compete in eventing, jumpers and dressage. We've evented for 5 seasons, through Novice. We've qualified for AECs, but never went because it was too far away.

Beau's favorite is definitely jumpers. He likes the speed aspect of it, I think. We do pretty well up to 3'3".

And finally dressage, not his favorite, but we deal with it. We've competed through Training 3 & 4. We even went to the USDF Region 1 Jr./YR championships 3 years in a row. Finished 1,2,3 as a team and individually and was an individual reserve high score winner. Now we're schooling first level and some second level movements.
