Thoroughbreds can do

Gold Commander One Update

Jul 25, 2011

Michelle and Elizabeth, The heat is tremendous. I get soaked to the bone going to the barn. However, we’re all coping. Goldie has transitioned well to his new home. He makes friends easily. He has a pony buddy, a little paint. And all the ladies, girls and little girls at the barn LOVE him –…

Learning Lessons

Mar 29, 2010

Hi, guys, I had another good ride on Bounced this weekend—despite the howling wind, storm front coming in, raindrops, horses being ferried in from pastures to the safety of the barn, etc. I still am hoping he will beef up some over the summer, but he’s healthy and content, so that’s the most important thing.…

Dr. Sidney

Two More Shoes

May 11, 2012

I just wanted to send another update on Dr. Sidney. He has back shoes on now and is figuring out bending and leg yielding without a problem. I still love his natural balance at the canter and with his hind shoes he has really started to step out and push from behind at the trot and is even starting to figure out that stretching at the feels good.

California Break for Chilletecaux and Dakota Spirit

Sep 21, 2009

Well I know I haven’t gotten any pictures yet but I have good news. We went to CA for a week and when I got back I got straight on Chilletecaux (no lunging) and it was as if I’d ridden them both he and Dakota Spirit the day before! What good boys – I realize…
