A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I rode for a number of years as a teenager, then circumstances changed, and I couldn't.
Then, a few years back, circumstances changed back and I started riding again. Summer 2011, I had the most marvelous opportunity offered to me and now have a 15.2 HH Quarter Horse. In the first year, I learned more about horses than all the previous years, put together.
Since then, my riding skills have improved dramatically, thanks to a challenging horse and excellent instruction.
Do you have any pets?

So this short post covers a simple, specific exercise I've found…

The Oakley Diaries - 23: Taking Stock

I finally found a couple of free evenings and finished a sword-holder and stirrup lance-bucket, so I can now strap my repro 1908 British Cavalry Sabre onto my repro 1912 UP saddle and re-introduced Oakley to the sport of tent-pegging.

Last time we did this was over 2 years ago, and he was... skittish. He got terribly upset at the sound of the sword drawn from the scabbard, he was nervous about the sight of a drawn sabre, tried to escape from the waving pennant on the lance, and did…

Hello Bruce

Just a gently nudge as a new year is hear and we have been receiving quite a few invitations starting in the spring. We even have the chance to participate with our friends in the 6th Ohio Cavalry in the Pegasus Parade in Louisville prior to the Kentucky Derby. Not sure any of our members will be gong, but it would be something.

Hope to hear from you and hoping more to ride by your side.
