View Full Version : Calling all 3 year olds!

I just bought a 3 year old mare at the end of August and I have to be honest and say that I AM HAVING A BLAST! I love her so much and considering she has around 3 months of non-professional training (just me with her at school with occassional lessons from a trainer that is kind of far away) I think she's doing great. I haven't started jumping her yet... won't do that for a while but she's going great under saddle, goes on trail rides, and even walks through puddles! So I was just wondering if we could share pictures and stories.

We don't have pics yet but my boarder's 3YO is doing awesome. By Ironman. Nice, quiet boy. BIIGGG! W/T/C and hacks out on trail. His mom has even been on him a few times in the ring!

I have a 3yo (just passed the 3 1/2 mark finally) by Westporte that is w/t/c and started lightly over fences. She is butt high and growthy looking again so we're just doing flatwork for the rest of the year then she'll go into a program with some pro rides. Best brain of any green horse I've ever had, bar none. She's been on a huge trail ride, done a show, been XC schooling... handled it all great. She'll even herd goats and canter through water, so if goats ever wander into the show ring we're prepared. ;)


Here's a couple pictures

Wow...nice! She looks like a Westporte.

Mine's been in training about 9 months. He's doing great - jumping small courses and should be ready to show this winter. He's gone to a few shows to hang out and seems to take it all in stride.

I have a 3 yo TB filly. I got her last spring (as a 2 yo). She was bred to race but after her breeder put $60,000+ into breeding her between buying her dam and the stud fees she brought $3500 at the yearling sale because she was so big. I got a great deal on her because they had fallen in love with her and wanted her to have a good home. I lightly started her last fall. We have been taking it slow since she is so big (she is 17hh and wearing a size 2 shoe!) but she is w/t/c and a pro trail horse. She is an absolute sweet heart and has been willing and happy with everything I've thrown at her. I ride her out to the field bareback with just a rope around her neck and she couldn't care less (reminds me of my childhood ;)) We also have the same birthday lol I didn't know this until we were driving out of the breeders driveway and I looked at her papers and started freaking out... It's the simple things :winkgrin:.

I don't have any recent pictures, but here are a few

My 3YO out of a Jupiter mare by Escapade looks to be nice. I don't want to jinx myself, because she is small and not a great mover, so I have to bank on the fact that she will jump as well as she did in the chute, have a big step and stay as nice as she's been to start. Not asking much, right ;)

I had a cowboy type put a top-notch start on her for 30 days and am bringing her along myself. I ride her 3 or 4 times a week , and I must say, I am quite smitten. I have yet to lunge her before I get on, although I did teach her to lunge so that she knows how at her first show. I learned that lesson the hard way with her distant relation, the real Justice.

Keep those stories coming. Love to hear what other 3 YOs are doing. Mine has an unknown birthdate, I think she won't be 4 until late next summer, but I plan to show her in the baby greens in Traverse City as Estrellita next summer if all goes according to plan.

Here is my girl Claire by Cabalito.
http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2226622430101086842ZawDqD?vhost=good-times

She has been in training (5 hours away) since April. I have been out to see her a few times and get more excited each time!! In October, I got to jump her and the above pic was taken right after that...I am one proud momma!

My baby girl has hauled out to several schooling shows and most recently was a rock star at her first cross country schooling day. Wish I could post a link but the vid is on my FB page. I have more videos on my youtube link in my signature.

I bought Claire as a weanling with the intent of her being my next ammy hunter. Then was going to sell her because my gelding is still trucking me around. But now I am wanting to keep her because I have so dang much fun riding her!!! :winkgrin:

My three year old is coming along nicely. I'm not planning on showing him until next year with the (ideal) plan to be ready to move up to pre-greens by the end of the year (and of course hold off until December).

Right now he's doing a mix of flat work, learning to jump (he just did his Fisher Price My First Oxer in the gymnastic the other day - cheap thrill) and because I like variability, trail riding. In the mountains even. He went for a nice long walk yesterday, complete with river crossings and creek crossings and really was quite a good boy.

Here's a video of him (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVYnnJfRRLk) during the summer when he had about 90 days under saddle.

But this is my current favorite pic - stylin' in his trail riding headstall:

I love everyones 3 year olds! I'm happy to hear about all these quiet babies that are doing so well! I'm lucky that mine has been so easy! She wasn't touched before I bought her. Hopefully we will start showing in the spring and I'm very excited! I love hearing about all these babies please keep them coming.

Btw does anyone have any suggestions for clipping ears? Like I said she wasn't touched before I bought her and I couldn't even brush her face but she's great now and I can clip everything but haven't tried the ears yet and I want it to be a good experience.

Reagan
Nov. 15, 2010, 02:30 PM
First, just start with the outsides (fold the ears and clip the hair sticking out), don't go for a home run the first time. Go slow and quietly. Make sure she is okay with the noise around her ears, her bridle path being clipped etc. Rub her ears with them off and then on, then do just a little bit and be done. Don't make a big deal out of it, give her time to be okay with it and you shouldn't have too much of a problem! Good luck, it is much easier to introduce new things when they haven't had a bad experience yet, much harder with one who is already afraid!

DMK
Nov. 15, 2010, 02:39 PM
ear bunnies are a great way to introduce clippers, cut down on the noise and let them get used to the visual first.
But like everyone said, don't be in a rush, take your time and break it down into steps. The things a horse needs to get used to for ear clipping is
a) ears being handled,
b) ears being handled with an object in the hand that moves around in funky ways (possibly with a cord)
c) ears being handled with an object that makes noise while moving around in funky ways.
d) ears being handled with an object that makes noise, moves around and possibly creates a ticklish sensation.

so make sure each of these steps is solid before you progress and go slow. Most horses will be just fine with some regular practice. My guy can be clipped w/o a halter, standing in his stall.

However some horses are always goig to object and going slow will help, but it isn't going to change the fact you may need a twitch. Case in point, fine youngster above who lets his ears get clipped w/o a care in the world? No matter how slow and often I practice it, we still end up with a twitch for me to pull or blade the top and bottom 25% of his mane. And he obviously doesn't have a problem with me being up around his ears, he's just not fond of the pulling sensation. He tolerates the middle 50% but after almost 2 years of working on it, I don't think he's going to get better.

He's a TB (although he's such a solid number I only half jokingly call him "Peppy San Lido Boonsabar") by Lido Palace out of a Cox's Ridge x Graustark mare, but he's pretty much a clone of his dad.

I picked him up before he went through the yearling sales. Sumthin' about him kinda being a slightly above average mover appealed to me. :lol:

I already did a thread about my 3yo, but here's my recap.

Took my boy (July 07 holsteiner, by Camiros out of an Alcatraz mare) to a Greg Best clinic to start jumping after 3 1/2 months under saddle. So he had a total of maybe 110 days of groundwork/flatwork and then 3 days of jumping which has now progressed to the "winter of growth" (i.e. hanging out in the pasture with his buddies).
Here are some pics:
warmup vertical: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/21377...94686761JmDspi

And the videos of his first (ever) and second courses on day 2 of the clinic:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q851DtF9en4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUyojmjxX9k

He's wickedly smart and has a little bit of a naughty streak (like most smart horses do!), but all in all he's been a blast to get started and really seems to enjoy jumping. It's the hardest thing to ride the other horses every day and just groom him or leave him out. He's so much fun to work with....I can't wait until I get to start him back up next spring!

As for the ears thing.....some horses are okay with it and some aren't. I haven't found any great correlation between horses that have been handled and those who haven't....some of my calmest horses (about ear clipping) came to me unhandled and I've had babies that were regularly handled and clipped who were awful about it (always). I use DMK's method and break it down into steps for any that are bad. It doesn't typically take long with a horse that's even a little food-motivated.

Good to see so many nice youngsters - and so many fillies!

Mine is a June 2007 baby reg. CWB out of a Widor mare and by Wallenstein (Winchester/Pik Koenig/Ferdinand), a dark bay. VERY bold and confident attitude, which is what I was seeking as a (eventual) UL sj prospect, however I will certainly have my hands full with her! Unfortunately she is a little bum high right now and also quite narrow as she goes through her current growth spurt, but she should even out in time. She is well over 16hh already ;) Moves exceptionally well though and we'll have a better idea of her scope come next spring when we put her through the chutes. I specifically sought out something essentially untouched and completely unstarted; currently she is simply sitting on pasture board and I have no plans of working with her (except what groundwork I can and have fit in) until spring/early summer, when she is a full 4yo. I will have to see where my time is at at that time, whether she will be started u/s or simply go through extensive groundwork and basics and started u/s as a 5yo, but I will be starting her myself with a solid foundation in dressage prior to progressing to jumping. I am in no rush :)

Here are some photos of her as a foal, in the spring when I initially purchased her (at 2yrs 8mos), and this fall when I brought her home (3yrs 3mos):
http://s892.photobucket.com/albums/ac126/naturalequus/Soraya/

I am definitely pretty excited about her!

He's really cute, DMK! I must have missed this video somewhere along the way (unless this is the first time you've posted it).

DMK
Nov. 15, 2010, 03:47 PM
I think I posted it once before, but thanks! Now here's hoping he can jump, although his instincts over little 2'6 stuff in the jump chute last year were pretty good, not taking your breath away but thinking his way through and being consistently good and even with his shoulder and forearm, regardless of distance. If he hangs on to that trait with a rider, I'll be more than pleased.

If not, I'm going to buy western tack and try out reining. He does have a quality spin based on yesterday's trail ride when he saw a giant TB eating fallen tree (hey, the root base was bigger than him and right next to the trail). And just like a good reiner, he spun, stopped as soon as I touched the reins and didn't move. I had my droid phone in one hand the entire time and didn't worry about losing it, him or my seat. :D

ETA - love the vid of Charlie! (and can relate to the cluck cluck cluck cluck LOL)

Had to giggle at the fillies comment. Mine was supposed to be a bay colt, that's what I kept telling her dam. She got the first part right at least (thank goodness, I didn't want chestnut!). In retrospect I'm glad I got a filly, so it worked out. :)

Here's a little video of mine from a couple months ago.

I wouldn't have guessed he was full TB. He's beefy! Really cute.

I bought my mare as a 2 y.o. She had been lightly manipulated so I had lots of ground work to do with her the first year but she was a quick learner. She is now a still growing 3 y.o. (B's Conquest x Accord II) and was started professionnaly in March. She accepted the rider without blinking an eye. Then she was lightly ridden during the summer to let her mature a little (she's quite on the small side ;)).

In September, I started her training program wich is mostly dressage and poles. My plan was to start jumping her in March, but Oups ! I am pregnant again, so it will have to wait unless I find a rider to work with her this winter. I will continue to ride her untill the baby belly pops out.

Here she is few days ago:

This is my '07 filly, out of a Wallstreet Kid mare and by Bordeaux. I bought her in early June, and she moved her from her baby barn to the real barn with 45 days under saddle in early August. Since then, she has been great! She is solid W/T/C with a really natural lead change and huge stride. She is jumping little gymnastics with my trainer and just W/T/C with me. So far, everything about her has been pretty straightforward. She is sweet, kind, and very sensible, but still has spooky baby moments. She has been to Culpeper twice to hang out for the week, and didn't lose her marbles, so hopefully she will be ready for the baby greens in the spring. She turns 4 on St. Patrick's Day.

my gelding is a bit behind the times training wise at 3 1/2 now(4yr may 21/2011)
as barn,moving and other personal situations, it got put on back burner.
mine knows lunging,but is still quite green at it, as he is just starting cantering on the line.i have backed him,tack and without(love the bareback),but its been a while.
starting tommorow will be having h/j pro come and help me,so im quite excited about that.maybe by summer will be doing some actual riding on him.ultimate long term goal is too be doing the adult a/o hunters with him and then maybe jumpers later. sorry no pics of him.

My filly just passed the 3.5 year mark. I love her to pieces! Got her right after she turned 2 from up in Chapel Hill from a lady who came highly recommended from some fellow COTH'ers who also have some of her babies. :)

Faith is a rose grey appendix QH, out of an appendix mare (Plum Precious) and by another appendix (Skipa Lucky Spring). She is currently sticking at 15.2, and will probably top out at 16h, give or take, which is a perfect size for me. I started her very slowly last summer & backed her last September. We got as for as basic walk/trot, before taking a couple of months off December-February, while I recovered from breast reduction surgery.

Started back with training in February, and we are now WTC, catching the sticky right lead about 85%, and are improving every ride with bending & balance. We have been to two schooling shows, and have gotten 2nd place in both walk trot classes we entered. She has the best mind of any baby I've worked with, and is an absolute doll, both on the ground & under saddle (even with the baby "I don't wanna" moments)

We had a setback with feet, thanks to my now former farrier, who decided to cut her way too short (I was not there), then not bother to return my desperate phone calls to come out & fix the problem. Give someone 5+ years of being an excellent client, only to be sh!tted on...thanks buddy...I'll be sure to pass the word. :mad: She now has her first set of front shoes, and has grown back out, and is moving much better with them.

Right now, we are working to get a little more polished and sharper on transitions, then hoping to start on some baby x-rails here & there this winter (ground poles have been uneventful) Going to take the cold months pretty easy, since work & baby leave me with limited time, then start back in the spring full force. :)

Here's some pics of my girl:

Faith! She is such a beauty. Don't get disheartened about the sticky right lead. Remember, not too long ago you were wondering about cantering at all!

Mine has no sticky leads and is perfectly happy to canter off on either one regardless of which direction we are going in. Leads, schmeads. Highly overrated.

Every time I get off I tell myself, brick by brick.

I'm depressed now :(

Lack of funds and available trainer(s) nearby have hampered my boy's start under saddle. Although all the ground driving has made me more fit ;)
I've done everything with him from the ground, but have only done very basic stuff on his back. I'm usually alone at the farm and have never thought of myself as a trainer anyway. He's poked along on trail rides and been in the ring a few times. Poor planning on my part <sigh>

So he waits - and he grows! Frickin' moose! He was 17.1hh last time he was sticked and I think he's grown again....

He is beautiful! Don't worry, it will do him nothing but good to stand in a field and grow up! My poor filly has been on the back burner since I got her. I wasn't really looking for a horse and she just kind of fell in my lap. I'm happy to take it slow with her and just have fun and let her grow. No need to rush for me!

BeastieSlave
Nov. 17, 2010, 01:13 PM
Yes, I console myself with the fact that at least I haven't done anything with him that needs to be undone. Also, since he is such a moose already and his mother didn't stop growing until she was around six, it's a good idea no to rush him...

I bought him in Holland as a 2 yr old and he has been over there in training since then. He has been under saddle since March/April and started slow. He arrived about 2 weeks ago, and I am SO thrilled with him! Right now we are working on our flatwork and I haven't started him over fences yet, although he did some x rails in Holland before we imported him.

He is about 16.2 now, I think he has at least another inch in there, maybe more.

Here is his picture right off the trailer when he arrived at the farm:

Thanks, Justice! You are so right~ brick by brick, one ride at a time...and it's paying off. I have a happy, laid back filly who loves attention & loves to please. That in itself makes taking it slow & being patient all worthwhile! :winkgrin:

No, I'm that crazy stupid too!!

I am starting my home bred 3.5 appendix buckskin filly and she is doing great. She is really smart or I am a darn good cowgirl. I still ride her western in a bosal right now mostly because I like having a handle on my saddle while riding the greenies.

I love that I am not the only one that has a 3 year old that is not perfectly broke yet. This is a great thread.

This is one of her first times trying the whole jumping thing! Not sure which avenue to take her down...jumpers or hunters. She's got the movement for the hunters but she's super balanced and has the jump behind for the jumpers!

And, yes, that's her tail! It doesn't look real, I know.

Oh MY!!! I love everyone's babies! Gives me something to look forward to, as I just got my girl in October, so she's had about 23 rides on her. She raced 3 times during June/July, then was chukked out to pasture until I got her. She's finally starting to understand the seat/leg thing which is very helpful! She has a great head on her shoulders, all business under saddle, however on the ground she can be sweet as pie, then "snap" the Red Headed B**** comes out! I forgot how rewarding and fun bringing along babies is!

Here she is on her 19th/20th ride.....

I'm picking up my 2 yr old tb filly this afternoon! I'm very excited about her. She's a complete doll and already w/t/c both directions and trail riding. She will be 3 in March and is already just under 16.1hh. I'll have to get pictures of her as soon as possible. I'm plan on just letting her grow up this winter and in the spring just really working on her flatwork and maybe by next fall start introducing fences.

I am getting a 3 year old Warmblood tomorrow for a Christmas present so all of this is very encouraging for me and I love all the support you get on this forum.

He's perch x TB - 16.1 already. Seriously has the most comfortable canter I've EVER sat on. Goofy, brave and a blast to ride. He loves the trails (we start all the babies outside), and I'm not jumping him yet, because he is so big and can be a bit unbalanced, but on the lunge, he goes to anything I point him at.

Here is my 2 yr old TB filly by Toccet. She'll be 3 on March 24th. Never raced and not tattooed.

She's settling in very well. I've been very impressed.

Everyone's babies are so gorgeous and promising!!!

I must be crazy, as I have two 3 year old geldings off the track.:eek:

Max aka Wait and See:

I got Max as a resale project and I've had him since he was 2. He's w/t/c with changes, jumping small courses, and has horse shown lightly. Until he moves, I have my other 3 year old on the back burner.

Remington aka Reminisce:

Remington is currently sitting in a field and growing up for awhile. He is already 17 hands and still growing, so he gets loved on in the field and occasionally trail ridden. He is definitely my forever horse and will eventually replace my A/O horse in a few years and hopefully fill her shoes!

3yr filly TB who is gorgeous, and so well broke its scary. You just want to be able to do so much more with her already.
Huge gaits, lovely jump basics and the sweetest girl around.
