    Default Video My baby green Hunter :) added flat video

    Okay I just had to do it because I am a proud mama.

    If you have followed my stories; I bought this horse back in August off a video and was sitting on pins and needles waiting for his pre purchase. The COTHers helped me through it and even came up with his barn and show names.

    Now, I can blame you guys for posting this video because you said to post his progress

    He is a young guy with not much jumping experience. I have an amazing trainer and we have been bringing him along at his pace. And what's cool is even his ammy mommy can ride him.

    Here he is in his first jumping show. Lead changes are coming slowly but I was so proud of him for trying so hard. He was mellow and happy so that's a good start of hopefully a very long time with me.

    He's awful, I'll take him off your hands for you

    All kidding aside, consider yourself a lucky person. He's absolutely fabulous

    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    I love his canter and expression as he jumps - so cute. He looks like a very kind horse and is definitely very fancy! Best of luck with him.

    VERY NICE horse. Also - I love seeing a hunter cruising around w/out a martingale. You're going to have a great time w/ him!

    He is lovely and has a beautiful way of going. Lucky you, he is going to be something special. And I've watched Patrick through the years turn out some really fantastic hunters that are ammy-friendly. Thanks for sharing this video. You must be one proud mama.

    Yes is was.....

    Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments and encouraging words. I hope all continues to go well - I don't know what it is about horses, horse shows and all that comes with it is just such a culture of it's own and I long to be a part of it. It's so much fun.

    And YES on the baby-horse lead changes..... we are just happy he is starting to figure out what we want. Sometimes he's like; what was that I just did? And takes a few strides to recover.

    Added video - I had my flat class taped... and you can see he is very ammy friendly. And I think he goes pretty good - we still have steel shoes because the farrier says he still needs them....

    He has Ammy Hunter written all over him. That's a spooky place to show (LA County Eq center or whatever they call it now)and I loved how he lined up between a couple of fussy ones, sort of look over at them like, what's up, why are you moving around when we get to stand? Seems quite sensible.

    Glad you came back with this, I was wondering how you were doing but afraid to ask in case he broke or something.
