A Little Bit Sideways...

I'll be honest - the website is getting away from me. It is an ever starving beast that needs to be fed - every - single - day. So with that in mind, it is getting some much needed attention and each sales horse's page is being updated and changed. Dramatically. I am waffling a bit on a few last details of the layout but as soon as I can firm up concept to reality, it is a done deal. No more scrolling. No more endless pages of images. No more 50,000 images per horse. So perhaps this paragraph is an apology for the changes that are going on...

Speaking of changes - we will be offering a Training Day on Saturday November 16th from 9AM-3PM. We will be going over our training system for young horses through Grand Prix. I promise there will be a ton of flying changes shown throughout the day - how to teach singles, simple, name it, we will be happy share our knowledge with the public. Limited stabling available by request for the day. Lessons will be $75 for a 45 minute session. Auditors $20, please bring a chair and dress for the weather.

And now for the "fun" part of the blog I was looking forward to typing...
You all know that I will rave about how awesome life has been to me - I grew up on a farm, have really supportive family and nice horses to ride...well, my appreciation for all of that has been intensified in the past few years as another generation is coming on line as riding horses. I've grown up riding sons and daughters and brothers and sisters of previous horses, so there is a strong element of "family" in my background as a rider, not just as a lucky person living on the farm. (in a nutshell)

For example, I had an awesome ride on Daisy (aka Dream Girl) yesterday. She's a full sister to Liam
(Don William) and out of the same mare as Wyatt. Wyatt is out of Savannah who is a daughter to Prissy (aka Able Spirit). Daisy is a livelier, more elastic version of Prissy with a better engine and not so broad in the saddle position! There are some other conformation improvements but the same feeling is there from the rider's perspective. There has always been an element of "star quality" with this family...they are special and they know it! That high regard of "Self" has been one of the best qualities to come down from Prissy and Daisy has it in spades!

There's a bit of what made us love the big bay mare so much...she was a really strong competition horse with an extremely prolific show career and fabulous mental focus. Her descendants are giving us every indication of being as good, if not better, than she was. The bigger the audience, the better she would perform!

But that's just one of the superstars that we're working with at the moment - there are many, many more that are intriguing as there are some that are more like Again and Again, Abundance, Adamant, Dekor, Atreo, Waldaire, Alacazam...which is a very good reason to scoot away from the computer and get to the barn to RIDE! So bear with me while the website gets the revisions finished. It should be done as soon as I finish clipping the riding horses! Hopefully!

~Happy Riding!~
