Working hard on Escalante to get him ready for the Mustang Riders...


The goal is to have all my 6 horses under saddle and going steady developing their utmost potential and allowing them to perform to their best abilities...Ruigoord 26 does not have much more to prove he is a standing member of the gentlemen's club and always willing to be a schoolmaster for a newby or a great first experience for a child...Aragon V, now 16 is entering that 3rd phase where horses settle into their own and will continuously grow and become who they are meant to be. He performs perfect with the drill team, is an outstanding herd member, perfect gentleman and reliable Poudre Wilderness Volunteer. He taught Coppersmith the ropes of relating to me. LOVE is walk/canter departures and his jump, will not ask him again for FLYING lead changes, but will insist on more lightness in the hand....Escalante 8 is WORK IN PROGRESS and he is working with the LG bridle. His arena is the dressage competition and I hope to have him in a couple of training shows next year. Veedawoo is 6years old and the proof is in the pudding. He is the mountain horse per se, water rocks up and down, standing tied and patient and also jumping and accelerating if necessary, Cows no problem, water swimming and even though he is not the love of life fellow I knew when he was just a yearling, he is still the most fun horse...(besides his eating mania)Just what is going on with the cross firing in the canter, unbelievable how he switches in the back...
Silhouette still a little unwritten and mysterious. I will have to see her through the fall and winter to say more. She is the only mare I ever owned and there is a special relationship to be discovered, since she also gave me Galicio. This summer I switched from trying to elevate her action in the trot to realizing that she is a gifted western style motion, she can travel smooth and enduring in a shuffle like pace that gets places without noticing. She also has the most ground covering walk and the mother attitude is very valuable when it comes to estimating questionable situations. I love her.
Leaves Galicio, who is turning three in a couple of weeks. He has started ground school, second chapter.   A lot of spanish in there and elegance, know him from birth on (none of the others) and hope that his mind keeps up with the growth of his beautiful frame.
