I am so excited to anncounce the addition of Artonius Rego to my team! Rego is a 4 year old thoroughbred from Claibourne Farm and he is just stunning. He has been layed up for a few months to recover from a mild fracture in his cannon bone but is good as new and ready to start hacking out on the property. Many thanks go to Lara Anderson of Full Gallop Farm for this opportunity!

Rolex here we come! ;)

Tino has turned into one of the most fun horses I have ever ridden and I am so excited to take him prelim this season.  He has come into his own as a preformer winning Training level and making it seem easy! He loves his job as a competitor but also loves to be a school horse and teacher to begginer ridders!  I wouldnt be able to do it without him! Love you Tino!

As many of you know Harry got a quarter crack in his right front foot last February.  We have been working on healing him up and I am very pleased to announce that after a very long time he is finally on the final stretch and I will have my big guy back.  It was not a total set back.  We have improved our dressage emensly with the help of Grant Schneidman! THANK YOU GRANT! I am looking forward to a great season this year!

Today was the day we picked up the mustang I am going to train for the Extreme Mustang Makeover! I am very excited about this horse.  He is very cute! We are going to call him Stanley.  He is very skittish and could take a while to touch him but I think he is going to be fun.  He is a solid bay with no white but is a pretty big boy! Wish me luck!

It is going to happen... I am now one of the Extreme Mustang Makeover trainers for this year.  The show will be held in June, and I will have 90 days to train a completely wild mustang to do undersaddle and ground manuvers plus anything else that will help us stand out!! The horses are drawn at random so you never know what you will end up with. I am very excited to participate in this great event that get hundreds of mustangs adopted each year!  More details on the way.  Pleas...

After visiting Remi in prison today (he is in halter training with the Canon City inmates) its officail, he is ready to come home.  We are planning on his delievery to be on Wednesday!!! The long wait is over.  While visiting him today I had the chance to pet him and work with him a little bit! He is going to be a challenge but I think he is going to be super cool!!  This last half of a week is going to be a long wait.  Keep your fingers crossed he wont be delayed.

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new Mustang, Remi.  He is expected to arrive in the next couple weeks and I can't wait to get him started under saddle and competing this year!
