Whodini WF (Waldaire x Abracadabra WF) 2007 Gelding video links & photos from this morning!

Flat footage
Jumping footage

Anne & Ellie went over to True Prospect between storms this morning and Ryan Wood schooled Whodini for us in blustery conditions. If you watch the Flat footage - just keep an eye on Whodini's tail - it is horizontal 99% of the time!!! But he was a very good boy - out in the cross country area all alone and he settled quickly. He jumped some logs, went in and out of the water, over the ditch and dropped into the water for the very first time! Such a good baby!

Sincere thanks go out to Roddy Strang of Sport Horse Training Inc for all of his hard work - Whodini is being a star and we are proud of how quickly he is advancing in his training. :)

Baby photos, schooling photos and a video link!

Wow! Is it really only Wednesday???? It's been a busy week but let's all enjoy some photos of Wizard's daughter first! :)

After we got some of the dressage horses worked, it was time to clean up Avebury WF (aka Dillon), Wallace WF (aka Lacey) and Wakanda WF (aka Wendy) for a school over at True Prospect!

All of the horses were excellent today and have made a lot of progress!

Thanks to Susanna Holder for schooling Wakanda! It was their first ride together and they got along beautifully!

Ryan Wood had a super school on Wallace WF! She's just really coming into her own and enjoyed her jumping quite a bit! :)

And last but not least - Avebury WF! Ryan had another super ride on him and they're both looking forward to MCTA and the 1* at the Virginia Horse Trials in the coming weeks!

HERE is the video from today! Enjoy!

If all goes according to plan, we're going over to watch Ryan jump Whodini WF tomorrow, so there will be another photo heavy post in the evening plus video links to enjoy as well! Oh and weather permitting - baby photos too! :-D

Video is cleaned up!

At long last I took a few minutes, went to the Apple Startpage and sat through the tutorials for iMovie!!!

Here is Whodini WF's footage with Ryan Wood from 4-21-2011. We should get some updated over fences footage later this week.


PS - This is Wakanda & Wizard WF's full brother!

Wall Street WF photos & Don William WF video link

We took Wall Street and Don William over to True Prospect to have a school this morning. The light was fabulous, the boys were good and Ryan showed us (again) what an awesome rider he is!

So without further fluffing - here is Wall Street WF (aka Hansel) with Ryan -

And then I opted to shoot video of Don William WF (aka Liam) as I hadn't the other day. He'd just gotten the still camera not the video, so for a bit of a change HERE is his video. Enjoy!

Thanks to Ryan and the rest of the staff at True Prospect for letting us bring the boys over this morning!

Schooling photos, baby photos...busy day with the camera! And there are videos to edit!

So we got Wallstreet Rose WF out with her Wizard filly for a while today! Enjoy the photos of Little Miss W...(we're on the hunt for a good name still)

And then our young stallion Wizard got to go over to True Prospect Farm and have a school with Ryan Wood! Such a thrill to see our horse go so nicely with a really good rider! :) Thanks Ryan!!!

Jump schooling video -

And the last horse of the day was none other than Wallstreet Rose's oldest offspring - Wall Street WF by Waldaire! Ryan had another lovely ride on him - they did a bunch of lovely flying changes, the ditch, the water and hopped over some logs & other obstacles! Not too shabby for a 2nd ride together! :) Thanks to Roddy Strang of Sport Horse Training Inc. for putting such a solid foundation on our youngster! He's awesome!
