    Default New Pics of Sexy Rexy from Lesson Today *Video Added Post #18*

    Just sharing photos from the lesson today with Dean Graham. I havent been able to ride Rex for like 2.5 wks as I had to get my saddle adjusted. So in the mean time I have just been long lining him. Today he was at a new farm and did awesome. Again worked on establishing bend while keeping him forward. I think this is like ride #20 or something? Losing count... This was also our first time riding in an arena/field without a fence. I like having a fence as a visual barrier esp when he blows through his shoulder and doesnt listen to my outside aids. But I had no reason to be concerned - he was great. Sorry the pics with me arent zoomed in. Hubby has a hurt wrist and struggled to get what video he did. BTW yes I know Dean doesnt have a helmet on. It is his choice. Please no comments about that. Thanks! OH - And Im wearing my old field boots from over 5 yrs ago that I havent been able to wear b/c my calf got too big. SCORE.

    Thought this was a cool angle as it really shows him lifting up in his wither/shoulders

    We had some moments of little spooks and not paying attention but easily worked through them - here hes very interested in the man walking his dog over by the horse trailer in the background (you cant see that in this pic)

    Canter was really nice - hes starting to get strong enough to carry himself more UP and Im sure fitting the saddle helped that too

    He is so lovely and looks like a blast to ride. It has been really neat watching him progress and especially fun because you can tell he is such a quick learner and is extremely athletic. Congrats on the boots!

    Thank you both! Its nice to share our journey with those who understand. He is a super quick learner (most things take one session for him to get) and retains his info as right now Im riding him like once a week. He will come out even after 2 weeks off and be better than the ride before.

    And thanks EqT

    Your horse looks great! I particularly enjoy reading of your progress, because my sister and I both have Routinier babies..they're actually no longer babies--turning three in a month or so. Rex actually kind of reminds me of my sister's gelding. Good luck and congrats on having such a special guy!

    Ohh cool!!! Pics? Do you feel like they got a lot of daddys personality? In your pocket, relaxed, super affectionate, etc. Have you started any work with them (ground or u/s)? Id love to keep touch and see how other Rudy babies come along. I wish I could get Rexs full sister. She was born last year. I was able to sell my breeding as part of Rexs price and his breeder bred his dam back to Rudy and out came a lovely dark bay with the same big stripe and personality.



    thanks see!

    Thank you.

    I feed Seminole Compete Safe and his supplements are Tri Amino, Smartshine (cant do Smartshine Ultra as I found out hes allergic to fish oil), paprika, spirilina, and flex force liquid HA & MSM. The Smartshine does help to polish off his coat and the paprika is what keeps his coat so rich and red. Hes basically out 24/7 except to come in to eat.

    thanks see!
    Both horses were born on our farm and have had a fair amount of handling--trailering, little trips off the farm, etc. Just 3 weeks ago we sent them off for 90 days of training. One week ago we visited them--both are long lining like perfect little horses--we're thrilled with how they look, and the trainer plans to get on them this coming week. In terms of personality, they are both extremely sweet types who want to please, but they're also very different from each other. The mare is a real submissive sweety who is lower in the herd pecking order. The gelding is all boy--more laid back but also more silly. Both are in your pocket types and are great with people and with other horses. I took videos of them long lining, but I'm having trouble posting...

    Yup the gelding sounds like Rex. Hes SUCH a boy. Goofy, mischievious, silly. You can upload videos to photobucket, youtube, and if you have FB, it actually uploads and supports video very well.

    Oh he's BEAUUUUUUUUUUTIFUL! I too am a proud chestnut owner. LOL!

    Looks like he's quite an industrious fellow, you're doing a great job with him!
