When I moved East to become…….
the World’s Oldest Working Student
one of my goals was to
“develop my own horses”.
I’ve never had as much trouble with horses I trained myself
as with others.
was that I was raising
And since I’m not named Karen, and none of them were named Teddy
they just weren’t going to get me up the levels.
Don’t get me wrong.
I blasted around a few training level courses on a 14.1 hand Super Pony.
But we were never going to make it to Prelim.
Buying horses hasn’t exactly worked out super well…….
A few were successes……….but plenty more
So when I headed off to
Live the Dream…..
developing my own horses
that are at least in
“the right category”
was one of my goals.
I brought a filly with me that I’ve owned since she was 12 weeks old.
Here she is wearing a saddle for the first time.
This fall she did her 1st Beginner Novice
and we ended our season last weekend with her first Novice.
No one else has ever jumped her.
And yes, I’m a very proud parent…..
Start developing my own horses?
