Not to be outdone by Scary, big brother Manny sent me a Christmas video present (so, ok, Sara's working student sent it, but still). This is him schooling 4' indoors under his trainer/rider Sara Mittleider. Believe that's dad Gary coaching.

Having bred both Herzmond (Manny) and his full brother Harry Houdini (Scary), when dad Tzigane *Pb* was still eventing under Mike Huber, it's incredibly satisfying as a breeder to have such skilled riders as Sara Mittleider and Kristen Wertz (Purplnpurple) lease 2 of his sons. Merry Christmas to me!

Very nice! :) Congratulations!

I do find it funny that under the "related videos" on the right, all but a few are porn. :)

lol! It's a very large Merry Christmas to me from Twingates as well.

Sitting around crying every night over a broken horse was really no fun. Scary gave me direction again. I'm goal oriented and need a good athlete to put my efforts into. Plus, Scary took the presser off Boomer--who is rising again!
muahahaha!
:lol:

Thanks Gry2 I think these 2 are a super match & can't wait to watch them in 2010.

*Pb* is an Elite performance designation given by the ATA to stallions, mares or geldings based on criteria established for their particular sport. Once won, the performance designation - *Pb*, *Ps* or *Pg* becomes part of their registered name. Manny and Scary's sire earned his Performance Bronze based on $$ won in Stakes and Open Jumper classes.

PDR you SHOULD be proud. Sara's an awesome rider, and I couldn't be happier she's the one teaching Manny the ropes. Crossing fingers for a super 2010 for this pair.
