Thoroughbreds can do

Snowed In In Maryland

Feb 7, 2010

I’m sure you’ve heard the Mid-Atlantic got walloped with a storm Friday into Saturday. My area got 24″! We’re all hanging in, and the horses don’t seem to be nearly as miserable as I would think they would be. Here’s a beautiful shot of Bailey, aka Outflankem, from about an hour ago.

Attention Maine Residents – the “Irish” has Arrived

Nov 2, 2008

Irish has made it safe and sound to Maine! Everyone was in such awe of his size! He came off the trailer so quietly, went into his stall and immediately drank water and ate hay. Very relaxed. We turned him out and he just walked around. I figured he would need to run and burn some energy, but…

First Ride for Finder’s Chance and Jim

Jun 20, 2008

Jim rode Chance yesterday for the first time. He fussed and threw his head and jigged for about five minutes until Jim got him settled down. When Jim rode him today, he never did so much as stick his chin out! They have really connected.

Oct 5, 2009

Cortableau handled being in an unfamiliar place at the hunter pace – new horses and different terrain with no problem. We actually had our first canter ever a few minutes into the ride, and we did a couple of canters up hills. So I got braver and, when we got to the really big field, we cantered again.

I am cantering again! I have really created a bond with Ridge, and together we are really doing well! He has been a very good boy. I have my confidence back, and am feeling comfortable enough to canter again.

What Every Woman Wants – a Great “Groom”!

Sep 25, 2008

I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my “Mail Order Groom”. He is beautiful, and seems very quiet and sane and very sweet! I’ve not done much with him as he seems a little stiff and footsore (my farrier has also trimmed him), just some ground work, a little lunging…

Lovely Weather – Lovely Thoroughbreds!

Oct 11, 2009

This weather is so wonderful! The boyz (Chilletecaux and Dakota Spirit) have been doing so well. Nancy (the older Ms. Lane) came out to watch both horses go which is great for me given she is such a good ground person. She reminded me not to let Chille get me leading with my body, to keep open to help him stay slower. So easy without someone on the ground and she has such a good eye.
