July IDS Show

Some photos from our July IDS show.  Red was a superstar!  He was so calm and just took everything in stride.  Love this horse and what he has done for my confidence!

We went to a show!

So we went to the May IDS show - and just schooled.  I didn't think Red was quite ready for the show ring.  And he did super!  We even cantered!

He was perfect - never spooked, never got upset over anything.  I don't know what to do with this horse!  He did stop and stand stock still when they played the national anthem.

I am thinking we will enter a few classes for the July show.  Wish us luck!

So...I bought a Thoroughbred!  We adopted Iced Over from Friends of Ferdinand about 1 month ago.  I sold Fergie to friends of her breeder.  She is living the life with 2 young men riding her, mostly western.  I decided after 3 years that I needed to have fun again on a horse, not constantly be worrying about being dumped.

Iced Over is fantastic!  He is very forward which is a totally new experience for me but will stop politely when asked and tries so hard to do everything I ask.  I have taken him to several outings and he has handled it all beautifully.  I have gotten the chance to ride a few times in our outdoor arena and he was perfect.  No spook!

Will be sharing our adventures - here are some pics to get you started!
