Crazy OTTB...ROFL.... Morgan is my man!
Katie and Morgan had a good time, although Katie said repeatedly she was NOT a hunter princess and was only there to keep her form for tet championships in July.

I broke my maiden today in the equitation world. Katie and I went to a dressage show where we took first in Intro Test C. We had a score of 66.3
I didn't do too well in training 1... we had a score off 55.8 But we finished the test, and I was relaxed and responsive. I need to work on not being so hollow in the neck, and stretching out more. Over all mama and Katie were happy, and I had lots of hugs and scritches.
Today was a great day!

What's up for Katie and Morgan? Well...Katie wants to do a dressage rally for pony club with him. So Mom is making them a grass dressage ring in a small little used field. Small dressage ring regulation size. NOthing fancy.... pvc pipe and rope on grass.
They have a dressage show on March 24, 2012 at Fairwinds Stables...
Carded Judge Johanna Gwinn will be judging their two classes. This will be good prep for the dressage rally and Katie is looking forward to it.
After that...around racing they will be doing the triangle series for equitation to keep her form looking nice for jumpers. She wants to take him hunting as well... so we'll work that into the equation somewhere before the season ends~!
Stay tuned for pictures!

Another great day with Ms. Marilyn. Katie is coming along great with her hands and stirrupless work. Mom took lots of pictures, and made sure that I got lots of pats. My nose was a touch sore, after all, I was beautified a week ago! I'm done with antibiotics and off the bute for pain and itchyness.
Katie rode me bareback today and popped me over a few small jumps. And we practiced my backing up. I was perfect as I cantered around the ring and stretched my legs some. I'm looking forward to maybe getting some snow!
