    Default What are your three year olds doing?

    We finally kept a couple of foals by my app sporthorse stallion, everything else we had we sold as weanlings or yearlings, but we have two three year old fillies by him. The biggest one is not yet riding, but has been saddled and lunged, this filly is a june filly (so just turned three) and this is about her 12th ride or so from yesterday, I think she is doing marvelously! Think she will make a nice hunter one day. She is out of a TB mare, the last foal from that mare:

    Default I've got two!

    Both trakehner crosses, one out of a TB mare, the other out of an Oldenburg mare. Both are going great under saddle and have even gone to a schooling show to do walk-trot dressage test. Both have hacked out on the x-c field and I just took one for his first trail ride last weekend.

    She will be backed in the fall. Usually I do the third birthday (would be April in this case) but I have too many "projects" as it is!!
    I am just happy with her attitude change this year. All our 2 YOs go through some form of the terrible twos but this un was the Terrorist Two...the worst ever for forgetting any manners she had ever known. Last fall hubby was shaking his head at the prospect of riding her...said "better you than me..." but thankfully she has mellowed out a lot this year!!

    Our colt had about 30 days under saddle this spring. Now he is just growing up. He will go back to work for real in the fall.

    Our 3 yr old rio filly is in foal to a dutch warmblood - pacific star - she just had her csha inspection. She has been in tack and does lunge but she won't be ridden until after her foal is weaned.

    One was backed and started but has been put on stall rest due to an injury obtained while in turnout. The other one will be backed the towards the end of August. So for the most part they're both just hangin'

    My Don Schufro/ Rohdiamant filly was started last month. She is going nicely wtc and starting a little free jumping for her MPT in October. My trainer is very happy with her. I'll try to get some pics next week.

    My three year old Corlando gelding is hacking every other day, goes cross country, visits other rings and hacks with other horses. He jumps one or two fences every couple of days, ones with bounces....just low stuff. I plan to take him to a couple of local shows just to hang out. He is barefoot and out all night. This is my favorite time with a horse...no pressure, and just the joy of seeing them learn and be happy about their life.

    I started my 3/4 TB, 1/4 WB in May and he has about 30 rides at this point. We went down to the trainers for a few days in June to check up on everything and get some cantering in. Now he's pretty much just trail riding as time and weather allow. We galloped for the first time this week to get him more forward at the canter.

    Most likely will just do more of the same the rest of the summer (2x week trails), do some more arena work this fall, winter off, then back to work and start jumping next Spring.

    Trainer riding for first time to check him out (2nd time cantering ever):

    Shawnee - Love your filly!

    Actually, I looked at everyone's 3yo's and they all look super! I went to the barn a tad deflated this morning and gave out to my lazy - happy - to - be - hacking away filly. She does ground poles and tiny little crossrails to keep her happy and goes for little trails, but haven't asked her to do anymore. She's going on a trip to loose jump next week and have a beach trip planned, but I'm jealous of everyones more forward babies!

    Mr. Equilibrium was not impressed with my giving out saying I had a very lovely filly who doesn't spook at all the crazy traffic we have around here and that she's quite happy to work for me. Yes, I was being a whinner this morning!

    I posted pics about a month ago, but no one responded so will leave them out of the mix.

    Equilibrium I'd love to see your pictures. How is your filly bred?

    My 3yo Trakehner is working sweetly under saddle, doing walk, trot and canter and hacking round the fields. I'm loving riding her, she is the kindest most trainable horse I've ever ridden in 20 years. I think the problem will be keeping our progress slow enough so her body isn't stressed because her brain is ready and willing to try anything. She's already moving away from my inside leg on a circle yet I don't remember teaching her how to do that, she goes on and back in trot and canter, medium paces are there for the taking but I don't think that sort of work is fair to ask of a 3yo. So I'm trying very hard to keep things light and easy and dreaming of what she will be like in a couple of years time.

    I have a few three year olds. All are started lightly undersaddle and some a bit further in training due to maturing a bit earlier than others. Finally I can see the beauty they had as foal since the uglies are long gone!!!

    Miragold is a 16.2h dark buckskin by my stallion, Mirabeau and out of a Wellington mare. She is maturing into a lovely mare, that icould not be more happy. And she has a very good work ethic. http://www.blazingcoloursfarm.com/willow2006filly.html

    Miramonroe is a 16.1h golden palomino also by Mirabeau and out of a Selle Francais mare by Galoubet. Fancy movement and colour. She is one of my favorites for sure!!! http://www.blazingcoloursfarm.com/miramonroe.html

    Mirascotch is a 16.2h golden palomino gelding again by Mirabeau and out of a Cartoonist mare. He is the biggest sweet heart and would do anything to please. I do not have many geldings and this guy makes me want more. Just so simple. http://www.blazingcoloursfarm.com/mirascotch.htm

    Miramyst is a 4 year old 16.1h gorgeous buckskin mare who will do the hunters. The work starts to get more serious for mine at 4.

    MY three year old Corlando is getting backed - he was and is such a big fellow that I waited till now - he is delightful, learning to go forward under saddle, walk, trot, canter and getting exposed to all sorts of things. I love this guy !!! However, I will throw him back out in a field for another year before doing more than the above.
    I took video and well, proud owner that I am I can say he moves a dream, but my video heads were screwed, unknown by me, so ruined video

    Here he is learning that getting a FACE wash isn't all bad:

    well, he tried to be good

    STolen Silver,

    Here's a link to my original thread. I think these were taken at the end of May.
    http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum...d.php?t=208700

    I do adore Abba to death. She's clever and she tries really hard to please and to things right. She does not like getting things wrong so I'm happy for her to be doing what she's doing.

    She is by Tadmus out of Heartbreaking, by Broken Hearted.

    My 3yr old (In July) Coromino is with a colt starter learning the basics, and I couldn't be more pleased with how he is doing. He has a great attitude about work, and is really coming along nicely. I havent decided on the long term plans yet, but I suspect I'll keep him in light work until the weather gets too bad, then he'll get the winter off. I took some video, I'll post the link once I get it uploaded.
