    If you're counting CANTER trainer referrals as well, then Risky Allure has been with us since August and, after some thorough chiro work, is slowly learning that it doesn't hurt any more to take the right lead. She is brave when hacking out and VERY happy to have a job!

    Three Mountaineer mares joined our family this year (thanks Jenarby!)
    Euphrasia pedigree,
    Small But Willing pedigree, and
    Yacht Hund pedigree

    Oh and my daughter's Toomer's Corner pedigree (USEA/TIP-Magnolia Avenue) Hope any of you who are Auburn Alum appreciate the name. We googled her JC name, read about the trees and decided that Magnolia Avenue was an acceptable alternative given the sad history of the trees.

    Of course my life/job got really busy right after getting the 3 girls, so they have been going on occasional hacks and seeing who can win the prize for being the muddiest. I am really looking forward to this Spring and doing a bit more with them.

    Through the auspices of Simkie, we got the beautiful and talented Lindas Pride from CANTER Colorado. Linda is very much a working girl and is sharply focused on her new job.

    She'll start eventing in 2014.

    Sparky (Moon Sparkles) is doing great! She is relaxed and workmanlike under saddle, and is starting to enjoy hacks. I put her through a jump chute (photo 1, photo 2!!) and she loves it. We hopped over a few little fences today for fun, I am just blown away by her willingness and confidence. (Video) So thankful for judybigredpony for posting her on COTH-- I likely wouldn't have found her otherwise, and she was well worth the marathon trip to PA!


    If I may, I'll also give an update on my 2011 CANTER KY alum, San Silvestro now known as "Ranger," or All Aboard. [2011 COTH thread] Ranger (2008, Silver Train - Melina's Fuse, by Lite the Fuse) did two YEH-5 events this season with good scores (74, 78). He also did two Training level events, winning his first one at Flying Cross. He is turning out to be every bit as special as he appeared in his CANTER listing-- I'm so lucky to have him! He's the total package: a great mover, huge gallop, powerful jump, excellent mind, very brave and bold. With awesome feet, too, he's been barefoot since I pulled his racing plates. I'm excited for 2014, he'll get some more experience at Training level this spring and hope for Prelim later in the year. The size of the jumps is irrelevant to him...it's all about developing rideability.

    So many lovely horse! Good luck everyone!

    Technically, I bought one CANTER mare this year (Running Eagle) and one who was owned by the same trainer but not listed (Pardon This Kiss). I don't get to pick them up for a couple more weeks though, so I'll get to make my fun updates then!

    Tin Star is my CANTER via jleegriffith boy. He is doing very well and heads to Aiken this week. He is super well behaved and learning fast.

    I got Caymen Island :-). Sweetest mare ever.
    Your dog may not be broken, but he still needs to be fixed.

    I am SO lucky to have found Patriot Lake from Canter Colorado! I've had her for two months now; fell off and broke my hand (complete with surgery ) three weeks into it so we are just longing and doing ground work until I'm cleared to ride again. She is the SWEETEST mare! So smart, trainable, level headed and loves her peppermints. Can't wait to start eventing her in 2014!

    I like her pedigree-- AP Indy on top out of a Quiet American mare... AP Indy/Fappiano has been a very successful cross on the racetrack (Tapit, Bernardini, etc, all of whom I'd love as sporthorses). In your photos, I can really pick out the Danzig in her too...but she moves with the cat-like powerful balance of an AP Indy (jumping lunge video). Really nice filly, good luck with her!!

    I have one (that was never on the CANTER site afaik, but was a Judybigred spot and she asked if I was interested) JC name Popic. A while back I posted a brief video of her jumping a cat:

    I picked up my OTTB fresh off the track at the very end of 2012. I've had him for a year now.

    JC: Don't Jack With Me
    Renamed: OKie Dokie

    I've only had a chance to get him out twice due to school. At his first Novice schooling HT he slaughtered the competition and won by 15 points.
    He's a great guy. Super playful in your pocket type of personality. Very very smoochie lovey dovey.

    I like him quite a bit. Sad to only keep him another year or so.

    I picked up Buddha Power off the track in January of 2013 and he is happily living with my friend who fell in love with him.

    I lost my absolute beloved boy I picked up off the Delaware backstretch 4 years ago in November, Big Band A Playing. He died in November of sudden and acute peritonitis and I am still very distraught about it.

    To help me feel better, and to start a journey with another one, I picked up Alex's Signal off the Penn National backstretch one month ago and am happy to report that we had our third "mini" dressage lesson yesterday and he is SO good and eager to please. He's relaxed and enjoying his new life.

    All CANTER horses!

    I picked up Rapid Rampage from Canter Ohio's Trainer listings, he arrived in Indiana in mid-November. Haven't done much due to some foot soreness issues, but the few rides I've had he has been so good for a baby horse!! We did some trot poles yesterday, and riding through some simple shutes...he is such a level headed pony, nothing really phases him!!

    I got Colby (TIP name Miles to Go) at the end of 2012 from a Canter MA listing as an unraced, unnamed, unbroken 6 year old. It took me almost a year to get him really going but he's suddenly turning into a pretty cool little horse with a great jump. I had a blast dragging him to hunter trials and paces and a couple of tiny events-- hoping to get him out at Novice in the spring.

    Thanks! I am really excited about her too Her pedigree and confirmation is what drew me in, she was pretty much perfect!
    She is so incredibly powerful from behind, I have visions of UL eventing in the future! That video was her first exposure to a jump, I couldn't believe how easily she could figure out a balance and distance at a canter! she was still a little foot sore since I had pulled her shoes, but she was just lovely that day. She's lovely everyday!

    I have been dealing with financial, time, distance, lameness, you-name-it issues for years so this is the first opportunity I've had to get serious about eventing again. I will keep you guys posted!

    Got my first (I'm sure of many) Canter Cutie in 2013!

    Baby Kanye joined me in October and has been a huge pleasure to work with. Haven't done much with him as he's only 2, lots of ground work and his first pony ride yesterday! Will back him the Spring and slowly get him to work. Darn thing won't stop growing!

    If I can ask ... how have you all managed tenseness at the start of work sessions? She's never been explosive or done anything silly, but she's definitely a bit nervous and keyed up until we start moving.

    Your mare is quite cute! I see the City Zip/Carson City in her.

    Regarding tenseness: with most horses, I'll walk it out of them. Long rein walking, take up the reins (trot trot trot!!! No...), walk circles. 10m circles, figure-8s, circles and serpentines around jumps. Walk over poles, serpentine through poles. Gently asking for bend, making sure to keep a following hand-- shortening the reins and locking your elbow is a sure way to make more tension. Keep those feet moving, but keep the horse's brain moving too. Unless I feel a pending explosion, I won't ask for trot until the horse is nicely relaxed with a swinging walk, after that "on their toes" feeling goes away. That may take 2 minutes, or 5 minutes, or the whole ride in the beginning.

    That works with most horses. However, there are a select few who can only tolerate walking for a minute or two, and then they Must Trot! Forcing the walk only makes them more tense and bottles them up like dynamite; attempts at lateral work lead to swinging haunches, curled up chomping at the bit, and other expressions of inverted tension. If attempting to walk on a loose rein is utter failure, wave the white flag and just trot. Get the odometer clicking, sometimes it's the only way to allow hot horses to settle. Often I use 10-15m figure-8 circles, a repetitive pattern that still allows me to put my leg on (important!!) and the horse will eventually relax into the boringness of going around the same place, rebalancing for changes of direction. Walk as soon as you can, long rein/pat, and then do your walk work.

    Also, try some groundwork. Lunging for 5-10 minutes before getting on, or even taking a tour to get to the mounting block can help (fiddle with jump poles, wander around watching others, etc). Anything to break up the routine of "Rider gets on, horse goes fast."
