    Talking (Brag!) My horse went from...

    Probably the world's lousiest racehorse (he never managed to pass another horse at any point during a race)...


    To


    UDSF's TB horse of the year! At training and first level! (well, it'll be official in a couple weeks)

    This was his first year showing dressage.

    We started the year scratching out of his first class to school the scary warm up ring... And ended last weekend with a 73.4, missing the high score of the show by a hundredth of a percent!

    Onward to BLM and Regionals!

    Congratulations!!

    He is absolutely the epitome of the classy, do-anything TB. I may be locked into "spots" (App), but I've owned and loved TBs, and my favorite Appy had a pedigree that traced to Man O' War (doesn't every horse? LOL) through Hardtack on the maternal side, and to Market Wise on the paternal side. There's nothing like a good TB.

    Aww, thanks guys! He's an example of a horse everyone has done right by.

    He was allowed to grow and was started very late, then was sold to a sporthorse home as a half sibling has evented to prelim. He was restarted and hacked a lot, taught to jump a bit, and I picked him up as a project. I played around with him jumping, but my heart and talent lies in dressage. My main dressage horse and heart horse, Riley, was injured and retired last year. Ive been leasing a guy going 3rd and 4th, so I drug the TB, Bennie, to all the shows for miles and exposure to sell him. And lo and behold, he's been a star!

    There's really not much more to say! It's obvious he's a great horse.
