    So all those "Barns in Texas" threads inspired me to call forth all ye Texans...along with the fact that I have seen some names that I haven't seen before (but of course, that's partially my fault since I was missing in action for a while).

    So what's up with everyone? I'll start! Yay!

    I'm in Austin, sold my horse in October, took a break, and now I'm back with Janet Christie doing jumpers. I'm looking into leasing a Children's Jumper and will probably go to some shows this year.

    Y tu?

    I'm in the DFW Metroplex and I attempt to do dressage...got my first horse a year ago (late bloomer). I hope we show this summer!

    Howdy Spaz...
    I'm in Burleson! I just had a great, exceptional ride on my mare...good piroettes and changes. My ride yesterday sucked, so it just goes to show that Scarlett O'Hara was right when she said,"tomorrow's another day!"

    I have a new acquaintance down your way named Daniel Bedoya. We were introduced by someone in Denmark because we each have some Danish horses. He jumps, so you might know him.

    I'm probalby one of the Texas nobody's you haven't heard of before. I've only been on this board since February when the weather was bad and I kind of got hooked. It's nice to meet you. Nice introductory thread. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I ride dressage and breed warmbloods...some jumping lines as well as dressage.

    We have a web site (that I desparately need to update!)

    I live in East Texas and ride at an Eventing barn. I started riding at 29, so I'm really a late bloomer. Don't have my own horse, I just ride/show my trainer's horses.

    I've met Flshgordon before and I've seen MsRidiculous and Charlie ride. I've probably seen some other Texas Eventers as well.

    Hi,

    I'm in Houston and ride with Katie Lambert-Boone. I lease a horse from one of my best friends and we're doing Spring Gathering (right after Pin Oak, my friend is doing the first week of PO). http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    I'm on the hunt for a new horse and think I may have found her, but I'm going to keep quite about it so as to not jinx myself.

    I'm looking forward to meeting others from this BB at Pin Oak, as I think we're having a COTH Get-together.

    Actually, I do know Daniel Bedoya. I moved to his barn...sort of. I was at Cornerstone which is AT Manor Equestrian (his barn). He practically sold Pi for me! Very nice man indeed...

    Howdy.

    I'm in Houston. I'm a bit bogged down with work, 18 hours of classes, the lostpony.com website, and two horses, one of which I'm trying to find the right person to lease.

    Didn't the sun come out recently?

    How fun-a bunch of TXans in one thread! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I live in Dallas, used to ride Hunters but switched to eventing last year when my TB died and a friend loaned me her Ap/TB. I have since bought him, had a baby (a human one), and am slowly trying to get back into riding.

    DRAY-I know you!!!!! Remember Rumor-and his mom Jennifer that drove up from Tarleton to clean stalls once in a while for you? That's me! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    It's been a while-how is little Carson?

    I'm attaching a picture of my little dumpling, Samantha-who is now almost 6 months old.

    TXan TB - you mentioned Tarleton. I used to live in Hico! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif How neat! I still have lots of family there, and was back for a visit in August of last year. I hope I can take my baby down there to meet them soon. She was along for the ride last time, but didn't have much of a view. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    dray, I used to board at Daniel's and took a few lessons with him. Very nice guy.

    As for me... barn construction is coming along. We're moving the horses at the end of the month, so Rising Star Farm is now *official*. Lexi is still about to pop, but alas- no baby yet. The other mare will be bred in her next heat to a Trakehner.

    The riding horses are doing great. Jez is scheduled to run a Novice event at the end of the month, and barring any unforseen disasters, will move up to Training at the end of May.

    Charlie is enjoying his retirement (he's getting FAT! I never thought I'd see the day), and he'll be a great uncle for the babies. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif See the link in my sig for more info and pics of all of them.

    I'm a Texan, I just haven't lived there in awhile. I used to ride at Unicorn Equestrian Center, first in Pflugerville and then when they moved to Manor. Do any of you know if they're still there? I recognise all the names you guys mention, but I never hear anyone mention Dana Tetens and Mark Doig at Unicorn, and the last email I sent them went unanswered. Dana events and Mark does h/j.

    I've been living overseas and haven't been home in two years so I'm a little out of touch. But I'll be there in May and June, dividing my time between Houston, Fredericksburg and Austin seeing friends and family before moving to Scotland. Can't wait!

    I'm in Houston, too! We do dressage and show jumping (used to event, but haven't in a while). We'll be at Pin Oak hosting the COTH gathering!

    Well...

    If any one hasn't figured it out by now, I'm an Austinite who does Hunters...but I've done some dabbling in Jumpers. I ride at Scattered Oaks with Stacie Bertolacci (yeah that hasn't changed in the past 12 years). I have a baby green OTTB who is about the goofiest animal on the planet. And a spastic yearling who thinks...wait who am I kidding, DOES rule the world.

    Although I took the last year off of showing, I plan to get back to doing the locals with Orion this year. Watch out for our big 2'6 debut on April 5th.
