3 & 4 y.o.s getting started under saddle. Videos of dressage prospects?

Any of you have nice young ones coming along you'd like share or brag about? I'd love to see what good quality young dressage horses look like with a month or two under saddle.

Thanks! :)

I have a 3 year old mare, however, as we are taking it slow we are just long lining (bare minimum at this point, W-T). If you would like to see a video of her on the lines I am more than willing to PM it to you. We won't be riding for a bit, as she has some growing to do.

I could post one of my pony and brag like crazy, but I don't know if she qualifies given the criteria! ;)

Mine is 5 now and I have no recent video. But I let me tell you I had a total ZEN lesson with her yesterday. I exhale --she gets soft and rhythmic. And then does this fabulous canter on both leads. I was over the moon, trainer said best she's seen us do (yet). And no video to prove it. ;)

This is my mom's big gelding (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVQo72nrtsY) Don William. He was 4 on April 22nd. Liam was started in the late summer/early fall last year, had about 2 months off and then went to Aiken to see the world over the winter. He is really truly 17.2 and still growing, which is why he has gone and done quite a bit already - too big to not be in a program! :) Liam does have his own page (http://watermark-farm.net/donwilliam.html) on our website if anyone wants to see the cute duckling-year/yakling-beginnings of a swan stages and there a bunch more videos and photos. :) I did ride him at his first schooling show 2 weeks ago and we got a 7.5 in the 4 Year Old Test...no major bobbles, just a bit of tension in the canter - which is my fault as I am wickedly unfit.

There are 2 other 2007 geldings that are undersaddle as well. Whodini (http://watermark-farm.net/whodini.html) & Wall Street (http://watermark-farm.net/wallstreet.html) were started in February of this year and are coming along nicely. Since they're about 6 months behind in leather time and missed out on a trip to Aiken, they aren't quite as worldly as Liam is but we are expecting them to catch up quickly over the summer.

Our 2008's are learning to loose school, jump through baby grids and wear tack currently. They will be started undersaddle (for real) in June/July/August of this year.

ETA: Oh and yes, we are primarily a dressage barn. And I am most definitely a dressage rider.

Hello TR-
Here's a link to a video of my 5yr KWPN gelding from last year. http://www.youtube.com/user/Boviro01#p/u/8/2L0qKKe1ZlA. At the time he was about 6 months under saddle. In this video I am beginning work to establish contact. He is naturally very light in bridle and now even as a 5 year I still would like him to take the bit more confidently. I have posted additional videos on YouTube that catalog our progress over the past year. He is a very large and heavy boned warmblood, last year was all about conditioning. I have him now very forward, so currently schooling on taking down the tempo but keeping the energy.
Enjoy!

Boviro01,

I watched some of your older and current videos, fun to see his progress. :) Thanks for sharing!

Tasker, your video links don't work on your site. :(

Since nobody yet has posted a video of a youngster with only a month or two under saddle, I'll go the other way--here's one of ours on his fourth day under saddle, as a coming 5yo.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H6lXWgb_Lo

We did spend a good period on the longe before backing him, so he had the muscle to carry himself fairly round. He does go a little low for my taste at times but he's still working out the contact/head position thing with a rider here and I'm trying to just let him work it out.

And here's a little Andalusian-cross 3yo at two weeks under saddle in the pouring rain--he was trained to drive before we bought him, which made him very easy to start in some ways.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ibG6ldWs8w

He's moving conservatively here, what with the newness of being under saddle and the rain, he developed more swing later. Here he is out in the fields:

Sorry about the no-helmet/casual dress here. I have a new helmet I love, and I wear it every time I ride these days!

Wizard w/ 20 days (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruAtrZHY9xk) of U/S training, then about 3 weeks later (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PEDVhMqg9g). He had about another week with Roddy and then was turned out to grow until January that next winter. Here's his first ride (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QDPRE3eIYA) back after the break. Then after 3 more rides (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36MfSZmK5Ik) with Ryan.

She is a huge mover! She is forward and rhythmic as well, which is a big plus in lower level dressage.
She is built slightly downhill, but I think you can correct some of that when riding if you ask her to carry more with her haunches.

Well, here's my guy that I like to think is a nice young horse. This was in March where he's still 4, but coming 5. He is about 6 mos under saddle here, but still very green for lack of CONSISTENT work. And I really think he'd be even nicer with a better rider than me, and with regular work. We were working on W-T and baby leg yields, and then we did some canter on the lunge line because he needs work on balance. The trainer had tried to canter him (not on the video) before that and he was really "humping" into the transitions and heavy on the forehand. So she put him on the lunge to sharpen up the canter.

He is now 5yo and STILL not on a consistent work schedule due to the rain rain rain we have been getting here in Cincy. I don't have a ring and ride on a grassy field at home, so since it's still MUD MUD MUD I cannot do that safely. I have to trailer him out every time I want to ride, and I can only afford to do that 2 times per week. I can't WAIT to be able to start riding him at home and get him REALLY going this year!

He is an Oldenburg NA by Mannhattan (Furioso II/Wendepunkt lines), out of an RCMP mare by Gaucho (Matcho AA). Interesting lines, mostly jumper/all arounder types, but I think he'll make a nice dressage horse one day!

Thanks everyone for sharing! This is great. :)

This is my little dude - well 16.3 hands, I'm just very tall.

He's a jumper prospect, but I'm entertaining the idea of showing this one dressage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aym4qZfINnw

His lengthened canter in the last 40 seconds of the video has me all giddy.

Fun to see how he kind of compares to all of your lovely horses.

May. 19, 2011, 11:43 AM
OOOOHHH he's a nice boy, tidy! If you put him together a bit more, he'd do some nice dressage work for ya! And color to boot! Is he by Sempatico?

tidy rabbit
May. 19, 2011, 11:50 AM
thank you!

He'll be 3 in June so obviously we don't do much of anything yet.

Yes, he's by Sempatico out of a very nice BWP mare.

When I first saw him at 4 months old, he galloped across his pasture and did that lovely lengthened canter and I had to cover my mouth and turn away so the breeder couldn't see my expression. I tried to play it cool. I was smitten.

He's very wiggly. This was the first ride where he went fairly straight for any amount of time.

I tend to prefer jumper bred to dressage bred a lot of the time - because I go more for collection ability and jump at the canter than fancy trots.

That said, I loved WBLover's horse at the trot. :lol: Tracking up so easily and softly, even if green and a little naughty.

I'm really enjoying this thread - fun to look at the videos, and think about what I want in a future young horse for me, that's realistic and a good fit for me and my skilled/unskilled areas.


Tidy - I definitely could see Ollie doing some dressage. And if nothing else, it'll help his jumping. :)

Here's my 2008 KWPN filly 60 days or so under saddle. I had only had her back from the cowboy trainer for 10 days at this point and I was working on accepting contact and forwardness with her. She accepts contact quite well but the forward part we are still working on...she's a lazy lass :). Love her to bits though!
She's by the Oldenburg stallion L'andiamo, out of an imported international showjumper mared who is by Zeus and out of a Voltaire mare.

This page has videos of my April 07 hony in various points in his early training. I need to get a new video up there, soon, since his way of going/body has been changing SO much:

http://www.vimeo.com/user5176311/videos

He's ammy-started (by me). Now, we're working on getting the trot more pushing from behind and asking for more adjustability overall. The canter, as he has grown, has come and gone. The right lead is sticky, and its hard to keep him cantering. BUT, he shows a lot of good natural balance and rhythm...I'm having a trainer hop on him once a week to help with develop the canter work and make sure things are on track.

He's a blast. He's got a great mind and is growing into a lovely sporty body. Best of all, he is soft and quite swingy/ strong in his back--even so young. He will be a total powerhouse at 5.

Hi Boviro1! You guys look amazing! Found and admired your videos from last year awhile ago. Was beyond impressed. You two fit each other so well. He is so well balanced upwards and downwards in transitions. How tall is he now? He reminds me of his big uncle C. How is C doing now that he is back in CA? You must just be glowing about B and so proud!

Love everyones young horses!

I usually post updates of my rides with Rex but Ill list out some pics and videos here to show the timeframes.

Rex is a coming 4 y/o GOV Old by Routinier. Hes currently 16.3 and I just noticed his butt getting taller again. Hes had appox 20 actual rides on him. I started him myself in Nov 2010 at 3.5 y/o. He is my first horse to start from the ground up. Ive previously restarted OTTBs.

I seriously photograph/video everything esp with him as I want to keep a log of our training. So heres the info and pics/vids from our journey so far.

First time backing was just getting on, standing, being led around, etc. Early Nov 2010
http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r186/krazytbmare1/Rex/rexshantelsit1.jpg

Second and third rides were being led and "lunged" at the walk and trot. For the third ride, we did go off the lunge and walk around and steer for the first time. Early Nov 2010

Video: http://s144.photobucket.com/albums/r186/krazytbmare1/Rex/?action=view&current=P1020633.mp4

Fourth ride I didnt have any horsey friends with me, just hubby, so I just got on and w/t without any grounds person - he was great. Early Nov 2010

At this point, a friend via my GMO told me about a "Starting the Young Sporthorse" clinic with Dean Graham in Lake City. After investigating, Rex was at the stage in training that was perfect for this clinic. They had horses just being round penned before, first time being tacked, etc. So I took him.

So his fifth ride was off the farm, at a clinic, under a covered arena, with lots of people watching. Dean was awesome (and is now my trainer) and we cantered for the first time u/s at this clinic. All work was in a roundpen. It was nice b/c Dean went through the steps with Rex as if he had not been worked to make sure there were no holes in his training. And to hear that he had been properly started and prepared for backing was so awesome.

Sorry the pics/vid are dark but it was under the covered arena and the camera wasnt too pleased with it. Mid-Late Nov 2010

Video of our first canter u/s together: http://www.facebook.com/v/1644106429732

I was unable to ride for the 2 weeks following this clinic and then we had another lesson with Dean (off farm as well). Camera died right after Dean long lined and got on. After a little trotting in the round pen, Dean took him into the arena and w/t/c and then I got on and w/t/c. Early Dec 2010
http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/162778_1669764591170_1449009522_31706867_8369594_n .jpg

I went on vacation for a week and when I came home we had a real cold snap and my friend moved her horse to my place. Rex had been tearing around the pasture and ended up with a bog spavin on his right hock. So he had a little over 3 weeks off with me being out of town and the boggy hock. We got the go ahead to ride right after Xmas but I had to wait for the ground to get dry enough.

7th ride - first ride back after 3 weeks off Early Jan 2011
http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/167766_1734468208720_1449009522_31849826_358822_n. jpg

9th ride - about 1 month after 7th b/c the ground was too wet. Early Feb 2010
http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/184213_1792992511791_1449009522_31948741_7018287_n .jpg

Ride #11 was another lesson with Dean. I had been steering and having light contact but wasnt sure when to ask for him to soften and truly accept the contact. Dean got on and within 20 mins, Rex "got" it. This was the BEST ride I had up to this day yet. We had steering and control and softness with forward - and I actually got a glimpse at what my horse could look like in the future. Mid-Late Feb 2011

This is a video from the beginning of this lesson with Dean teaching and riding. He was playing around and seeing what Rex could do. The file was too big so I had to compress it so its not the best quality.
http://www.facebook.com/v/1846381326478

I mentally and physically struggle to the left b/c my right hip is always up and forward (thanks to landing on the back of it and breaking my femur and cracking the hip when I was 13). So ignore me in this video but this is a clip of us working in this lesson and it shows the canter, etc. Not only is Rex learning, but I am too!
http://www.facebook.com/v/1842421187477

Then we got a lot of rain and I def couldnt ride at home (only have a grass field). So two weeks after the last lesson, I hauled down to the farm where we take our lessons for a hack. He was a little bit of a challenge for me this ride as there was a LOT going on outside of the arena and he was testing me. We worked through it though.#16 ride. Early April 2011

We also had our first big spook u/s. We were cantering along and then did a canter halt transition b/c there were *gasp* blue barrels outside of the arena. Rex then invented his own lateral movement.

3 weeks after that hack, I couldnt ride as my saddle no longer fit and I had to have the fitter out. The saddle was adjusted 4 days before our next lesson. This is the first ride since it was adjusted. This was our most recent lesson on 4/23/11. This is ride #18. Oh and camera is on wrong setting so the colors are weird and its not very clear. Sorry

This is a video from the beginning of this lesson with Dean riding. No critiquing him please.

My current saddle is working but its def hindering us. I just dont feel as stable as I could and its hard to keep my leg on (its a curved tree and he has a flat back). However, today, my saddle fitter brought over a saddle and he has had 2 weeks off with just one ride last week and I got on and after 3 mins of trotting, we cantered (3rd time cantering at home without training - that is a mental block of my own, nothing Rex did). I felt so incredibly solid and stable. I didnt realize how much the old saddle did hinder me. So hopefully I will have pics/vids from tomorrows ride in the new saddle I have on trial.

Hope those pics and videos are what you were looking for. He has been u/s technically since Nov, so 6 months, but with only now 20 rides total. Hes a big boy and still growing - just taking it nice and slow with him.

Sistertosorefoot - your guy is really turning out nice. I know how tall the sire is but am curious, how tall is/was the dam? TIA.

Thank you very much. Hes such an awesome horse. And yes, Deans accent is great. How can you not feel good about yourself when you hear "Gorgeous!" in that accent???

Thanks Exvet! I'm so happy with him; he's got such a big but good-natured personality. His mother is a 15'3 OTTB. Eragon hasn't been sticked lately, but I'd guess he's at least 15 if not taller. He's really leggy.

Love the canter on this horse. And what a remarkable change from August to November.


DITTO. <3 the canter! What a nice boy!

This is a 4yo Hanoverian mare that I rode for her owner.

We went to a clinic and were a little wild because it was her first time off the property since being started, but she was a good girl.

How about a two-month-old? I forgot all about this video of my yearling. I think it was the music that sold me on him, lol.

This is my hony mare Vegas as a 3 year old. It was about her 10th ride undersaddle. She is now 5 and I really need to update the video I have of her as she has changed drastically since the video; she has grown, filled out, and gotten a lot stronger so her movement and carriage has changed a lot.

I tend to prefer jumper bred to dressage bred a lot of the time - because I go more for collection ability and jump at the canter than fancy trots.

That said, I loved WBLover's horse at the trot. :lol: Tracking up so easily and softly, even if green and a little naughty.

I'm really enjoying this thread - fun to look at the videos, and think about what I want in a future young horse for me, that's realistic and a good fit for me and my skilled/unskilled areas.


Tidy - I definitely could see Ollie doing some dressage. And if nothing else, it'll help his jumping. :)

I had been watching my 3 year old's progress online for about 10 months by the time I typed this, just thought someone else would buy her before I had the chance! She's at the trainer's now and learning basics like putting her head down on command so her short owner will be able to bridle her, and tolerating things around her middle... And yes, she has a lot of jumper breeding - her sire was imported to be a jumper, then ended up being a GP dressage horse. And I love her!

Thanks! I'm hoping folks post videos here, too!

well I'll give an update. Here is my boy working on lead changes.

And here he is (the second horse in the video at about 60 seconds) schooling his first 3'6 oxers. The first horse in this video is Dodger who some of you may remember. He's 7 years old now and just such a good boy!
