    Not me riding her. I was taking pictures. Not my saddle either. Pixi is an easy to fit horse, at least right now she is, so my trainer uses her own saddle.

    Nice! I have to think he prefers the footing in his current situation!

    I just recently saw the documentary Wild Horse, Wild Ride, about people who take mustangs and train them for 100 days, then enter a contest to show what the horses can do. It was pretty amazing.

    OP, are you still in Hawaii? Do they have many events there? Just curious about the horse scene.

    I am still in Hawaii. We don't really have any events, though there is a little cross country course at the ranch here. Pony club uses it for their annual camp. There is a nice little hunter scene, nothing too crazy, but they have a little local association. Lots of other stuff too, a dressage association that hosts a summer series, ranch sorting and a western series for the more cowboy inclined. They even have a few little jumper shows. I love the close knit feel here in Hawaii, everyone knows each other and it seems they are always happy to lend a hand.

    I am only here for another year and a half however. After that its back to the mainland. Probably the DC area, maybe Monterey, CA if I am really lucky. Middle of nowhere west Texas if I'm really unlucky. (Unless I can work some sort of deal to stay here longer, but that's unlikely. Work wants me to broaden my horizons, and it does that by moving me.).

    ^ Interesting. Thanks for the info.

    I do remember an episode of Magnum, PI that involved a jumper that did the Grand Prix, but that's the most I've seen of horse shows in Hawaii.

    One of my brothers lived there for a while, but I didn't get around to visiting him while he was there. I do remember the quarantine process was very involved for his dog, so I'm sure it was at least as serious for a horse.

    It's actually worse for a dog or cat then it is for a horse. Horses are pretty simple. Health certificate and coggins to get on the boat, with the addition of a hosed down with a permethrin based spray. Another coggins gets pulled at the quarantine processing facility, the horse is then picked up that day and taken to the barn/ranch/stable of your choice. You either have to fly spray them wth a permethrin based spray daily or keep them a certain distance away from other horses. I think it's 200 meters. The spot I kept her in was well over that, but it was located on the same ranch she's on now. After 45 days you pull a third coggins and your good to go.

    Really? That does sound much more simple. My brother's dog had to stay in a quarantine facility for quite some time. I don't remember the exact details, but it seemed like forever when I heard about it.
