It's taken me a little over a week and a half to get the time for photo loading. Finally all the pictures I took of Keegan at the Noble Horse on the 9th are loaded and ready to be viewed!

FIRST OFF. These are all taken inside the ancient riding hall. It's very dim in there. I used a Canon Speelite flash but really the giant dark riding hall and a silky black horse...

WELL I DID THE BEST I COULD. ;)

Anyhow. Here is Keegan and his trainer Agnieszka in different costumes and doing different things. We all had a blast.

As usual. I do not own Keegan. I took the photos. His owner is Emily Jewell of Trails End Ranch. Agnieszka trains Keegan at the Noble Horse Theater in Chicago IL. Keegan also preforms as part of the cast for their plays and shows at the Noble Horse Theater.


This post will probably be split up and VERY picture heavy.



Waiting like a good boy while we dolled him up.




In five minutes flat, and two tries Keegan learned how to step up onto this little platform. I missed a good photo of him doing his "Spanish" step outwards like he was waving. It took him no time to figure out what he needed to do. Afterward he stood up there looking VERY proud of himself.

This is Emily in these photos, his adoring owner.




Next up is Agnes and Keegan,



















Here is Emily back in the saddle while Agnes works on Keegan's cues to step out at the Spanish Walk while moving forward.



(more in next set of comments!)

This is my bridle! I got it for Hylke. It looks excellent on Keegan of course.



Awh!




My favorite set of photos! After the white and polos came off the "Spanish" costume was brought out. I think Keegan and Agnes look AWESOME in this.

He looks proud of himself doesn't he?







Doing a bit more in hand training.


Are we done yet?!



Posing with a fan.



There are so many of these I like I don't know how I'll just pick a handful.












He grin cracks me up.




One of my absolute favorites.



Trot trot trot!

YES!

There is more. ;)


Next is Keegan in the keuring bridle Agnes and I got Emily for Christmas. We got her the white leather bridle and the in hand show bit and it all looks great on Mister Keegan.

I thought this was a cute photo.



I am stallion, hear me roar!



This photo is so cute, caught them both off guard and look at all that mane.





He looks like a toy.






Looks good on him I think!





One more reply, with liberty photos and we're done!

He is an amazing animal, truly beautiful. Why does the trainer have him almost hyperflexed in most of her riding pics? He looks really uncomfortable... Not trying to be mean, just curious... were they working on something specific?

Don't ask me. I'm not the trainer. Just the photographer. He doesn't look uncomfortable to me though. I know he is a handful. I don't doubt she used that days ride for photos as training for him too.

But like I said. I don't know anything about horses. I just take pictures.

Oh, Sorry. What I meant by he looks uncomfortable is his mouth is gaping in every riding photo, his head is pinned to his chest, and there are like 4 wrinkles in his lips behind the bit... just thought you might know the reason why.

Not trying to be a suzygodowner or anything, just making an observation.

Amazing pics for the poor lighting, they look very vivid in even in the dimness.

For as long as I've known him (three years or more) his mouth is always hanging open when he's "working". He also foams a lot. No matter what you do with him. The Friesian I lease is the exact same way. Foamy.

As far as the wrinkles and the rest of the stuff. I don't know. Emily trusts Agnes and Agnes has a good track record.

I can't judge anything. I can link the trainer and owner to this post though and maybe they can answer your questions.

I am not really that concerned about it lol. I was just wondering, I have no doubt that that is how he needs to be worked, as I said just an observation..

I think he looks comfortable, and he is in training after all so it will take time before he is perfect. Good job :) I think he's working out beautifully.

He's young, but he's learning quickly. :) Each time we go up to see him he looks better. :D
