    Default The website is functional and the Sponsor Coupon/s are up!!

    It's not done but it's navigational.
    No need to tell me about spelling errors just yet. : )
    Photoshop pictures will appear eventually on all pages. As will there be a phat links page.
    I gave my webmaster names and links to post just like everyone else has on their personal sites and what does he do? He goes to each link site and tags/copies the logo so instead of having the name to click on, the site will have logos. : ) Totally cool! Really good for those of us who cannot read. (Purp raises hand!)

    I have two Proposals out that hopefully will end in more coupons for my dear friends, clients, and students.

    Go check it out. Legacy Tack may have a goodie for you on the sponsors page. (Hint)

    Very nice!!

    Have fun with Carsten (on schedule for Feb 27th). My last memory of Carsten was at the last Camino 3-day. Everyone had asked him if he wanted a beer and he scoffed at the Bud Light. Then I walked out of the trailer, he took a look at my hand and said "You have Corona??" and asked for a beer..lol.

    Now I'm all nostalgic about Camino. Fond memories of Mike Winter telling me that the 4 year old i was riding (obviously not at the show) would not always be a spaz, of my friend talking about the very sweet and good looking guy who turned out to be Reed, watching Ralph and Winston, and Kim on He's Got Rhythm....

    Sorry to veer off course there. Your site looks great to me!

    lol.
    Carsten is the coach I work with the most. Well, he's the only coach I work with right now. You have to have emotions of steel to ride with him for sure. I love his vocab.

    I'm taking some of my students up there to work with him, thought I'd go along, hack the Boom Man and help out with the clinic. Maybe sneak a DQ lesson if Boos is strong enough to handle it.

    lol. This year will have some fun pictures for sure!
    less eventing and more general horsie fun stuff.
    4 year olds
    a Western Pleasure horse that drags her nose on the ground
    And a pony.
    Those are my latest rides.

    And I've joined American Competitive Trail Assoc. so we'll have pictures of the crazy trail obstacles encountered at competitions!

    oui, and I really need to do some high level hunters with the funny gray horse too. I just can't afford everything I want. sigh.

    Everything looks pretty on the outside eh?
    Funny Gray horse comes with warning.

    WARNING, gray horse jumps with eyes closed and goes out of his way to run directly into trees.

    So as long as you don't mind finishing XC at places like Pine Top a little bloody around the edges then you are good to go. Show me the money!

    You will love it. This is such good stuff for all horses -- and a really fun day out for the rider.

    Funny that closed eye thing...I am always amazed when I see that!! Not to worry about the trees. My knees, along with many other body parts are so banged up, replaced, etc...that I can no longer feel the trees.

    Love your improved site!

    I seem to remember a picture showing you with your eyes closed too! did you catch that from him or was that your attempt at "using the force" to navigate XC?

    Jumping with your eyes closed is o.k. It's when they start jumping with their eyes closed and one hoof tied behind their back that you have to start worrying.

    Purpl, I always enjoy your posts so had to check out this thread/your website. Lovely pictures, grey horse really knows how to use his front end over those jumps!! He is so cute, he looks like he just wants to take a little snooze over the boring stadium jumps

    Thanks a lot Terrysmom. I had forgotten about the double eyes closed.
    I think I caught it from him.

    Nothing like running blindly through the woods at 600mpm.
    NO WONDER we run into trees!!!
    his ears are pricked. Wonder where he's looking?

    I like! Please check it in Firefox 3.0, though. The logo image in the corner and the stripe down the left side don't line up properly in that browser.

    In general, one should trust the rendering of a site in FireFox over IE. Firefox correctly renders your html as coded; IE will try to make it look the way it thinks you meant it to look.

    You coded this with dreamweaver, right?

    Ditto this.

    Love the grey horse!!!
