Magie had her first trip out by herself. She was an absolute star! Loaded perfectly, was a little worried at the farm we went to because it was a new experience but she glued herself to me and was fine.

She had her first experiences in an arena, did really well in her groundwork session.  I learned that we have an awesome amount of stuff going on, but also I am creating some problems within our relationship I have to work on before our next time. 

Loaded like a star to go home. I LOVE my pony. :)

Hey Rose.
Congrats on another sucessful display. Did you bring your usual lady?
Gotta love the new brochures. I have been passing them out every chance I get. It is amazing how many people don't have a clue what a treasure Canada has in these little horses!!! So the more we get out there and 'wow' the crowd, the better. :)
People at the clinic we went to couldn't believe Magie had never been there before. She beat out the quarterhorses who actually live there on the tougher challenges in the playground. Second of course that she is only 2 years old. Whaaaa???
I have to keep an eye on her though....she trucks through some stuff when I ask her just to wait and process...She has the makings of a police horse I swear! Coming through...ready or not!
Brave little cookie.

Haa haa haaaa Queenrider! Scooter has you 'trained'! LOL
Magie was our sport horse's moral support when we trailered. Our other mare was a mess. She needs more confidence in a trailer. Magie was cool as a cucumber, but I could tell she was annoyed when we went to unload. We put a slow feeder haynet in the trailer because she is so rough on a traditional haynet. She kept tossing the new haynet and pinning her ears! I swear she was telling me it sucks to try to eat from this thing when it won't stop moving!!!!! She was bouncing it off her trailer mates head! LOL
I need to do some playing with Magie with the trailer so she can go to my friend's farm by herself. I have a feeling she will take it all in stride again..Is there fooooood there???? Cool.

The more I can expose her to, the better she will be when I go to start her. Trail walks, new places and adventures, maybe a fair or two, and not to forget, some 'scary' chickens.... :)

Congrats on Scooter's ackomplishments. Handsome boy.

We exhibited one of our Canadian mares at the Antique Power Show again this year along with our Newfoundland Ponies. This is the 5th year we attended this event. We would like to thank the Canadian Horse Breeders Association for providing us with banners, signs and pamphlets to hand outs.

Canadians learn very quickly and are very smart!  Last year I was at a dressage show with Scooter.  He had finished his classes and i put him back into the 4 horse slant load trailer next to a younger horse so he could keep her calm.  I went and sat outside and basically was having a snooze when I heard very loud banging.  I jumped up and went inside expecting to see a nasty accident.  Scooter calmly looked at me and was pointing at his hay net which was empty.  Scooter could see me through his window and obviously wanted more hay in his net.  I obeidiently refilled it and gave him some water so he could go back to eating, his favourite passtime.  By the way he won 3 and 4th ribbons at First level that day.
