Flashback Friday to one of my first rides on my girl before I decided to buy her. I was just happy to have a horse to ride again after 10+ years away never thought I would be able to buy her. She is still the same mean giraffe dragon now as she was back then she is just in better shape now 😂 photo credit to @l_delalla #shetoleratesme #spiritofadragon #neckofagiraffe #flashbackfriday #floridalife #jumping #crosscountry #eventersofinstagram #eventing #horse #horsesofinstagram #stadiumjumping #crosscountry #ottb #thoroughbred

i'm very sick and it's gross outside but here's a throwback to the nice weather. the QH butt is ridiculous looking sometimes

that orange sky is soooo prettyyyyyy :))) realized in this video my leg is so far forward 🙄 no wonder he isnt holding a bend to the inside // #eventer #eventing #dressage #crosscountry #stadiumjumping #corduroy #coy #quarterhorse #paint

Slowly but surely after a step back in our training, Boat is becoming more active, less tense, more free over his topline, and I'm finally starting to feel a bit better about our flat rides. Baby steps 💕 . Tonight we will play over some poles, tomorrow's ride will depend on how much snow we get, and Sunday I have a lesson weather-permitting 😊 . #ottb #eventing #workinprogress #horsesofinstagram #besthorse #dressage #stadiumjumping #eventer #bootcamp #boatpower #eventersofinstagram #riding #equestrian #equine #ottbofinstagram #thoroughbred #horse #instahorse #jump #jumper #jumping #xc #crosscountry #sandbox

Since Ty is still out. I got to ride one of the Jaeckle Centre’s horsey! His name is Captain and we had so much fun together! He’s very forward, uphill, and will jump over anything no matter how you get him there. He’s totally my kind of ride! ❤️❤️

Very excited to get back on Boat tonight after a really really crappy day yesterday 😅 . Days like yesterday just remind me how thankful I am for the people that are there for me when I need them... Especially my DQ friend, who went out to make sure Boat got some exercise at the drop of a hat so that I could focus on the things I had to do to get it back together 😭💕 . #ottb #eventing #workinprogress #horsesofinstagram #besthorse #dressage #stadiumjumping #eventer #bootcamp #boatpower #eventersofinstagram #riding #equestrian #equine #ottbofinstagram #thoroughbred #horse #instahorse #jump #jumper #jumping #xc #crosscountry #sandbox

Phinny’s dressage scores are in the mid-30’s and will improve as more flat training is done with him. Anyone is more than welcome to come try him. Phinny is currently located at Burning Benjamins LLC (5545 Broadwater Ln. Clarksville, MD 21029). To set up a time to come see him contact Chiantel Beaumont at 207.862.3828 or chiantel@gmail.com DM’s are always open if you have further questions! #horseforlease #eventer #eventing #eventerforlease #forlease #leasehorse #dressage #showjumping #stadiumjumping #ottb #ottbforlease #phineus

I cannot believe we are already half way through January. I know it seems soon, but how are your immediate goals coming along? I've been pretty good with my strength workouts, but haven't done a yoga workout yet.... which is stupid because yoga makes you feel soooo good and flexibility is so important for riders. . Now is definitely the time to break the ice before it becomes "oh well I already screwed up on x goal it is too late now." It is never too late, make today the day!! . Boat sees the chiro today instead of tomorrow, so I'm not sure what lies in store for us tomorrow now 😂 .

The big Boat got a lunge tonight, and was surprisingly sassy. His canter departs in particular were quite.... enthusiastic. He may have made a goal to become a dolphin this year. . #ottb #eventing #workinprogress #horsesofinstagram #besthorse #dressage #stadiumjumping #eventer #bootcamp #boatpower #eventersofinstagram #riding #equestrian #equine #ottbofinstagram #thoroughbred #horse #instahorse #jump #jumper #jumping #xc #crosscountry #sandbox

Some good clips from today’s half of the clinic! This centerline really had us learning to find a good pace in the middle of the line for a good set up at the back of the fence, instead of just barreling through and being frazzled at the end. Had a great time this weekend!

handsome boyyy :))) coy was really good today during our ride ! i worked on bending over poles and later @amd.equine and i switched horses ! also , i tried this early last year but i think i might commit go it, basically i want to start putting filters on my pictures just bc personally i think it makes my account look cleaner but i dont know i might try it out for a little and if yall care at all i am using vsco for it (lol very basic of me)!!! also thx to @amd.equine for taking this cute pic of coy and i !! // #eventer #eventing #dressage #crosscountry #stadiumjumping #corduroy #coy #quarterhorse #paint

I have no new pictures so here's a throwback to KY Classique

Friday I set up a hogsback to work on: ● Riding positively to a close stride. ● My position, as always! ● Boat's technique...This type of jump can be hard to read so I was hoping he would care about it even though I kept it small, and it encouraged him to make a nice round jump! . Overall the ride made me feel really good. We didn't chip in at all, he felt really confident, and we only had 2 flyers and I asked for them! It was really nice for him to so confidently answer my questions , especially since we can both get so backed off in the tiny arena! . #ottb #eventing #workinprogress #horsesofinstagram #besthorse #dressage #stadiumjumping #eventer #bootcamp #boatpower #eventersofinstagram #riding #equestrian #equine #ottbofinstagram #thoroughbred #horse #instahorse #jump #jumper #jumping #xc #crosscountry #sandbox

Today was long and frustrating as hell, BUT it yielded a few mildly good results, like tucking. It’s all a learning experience. #rescuehorses #tennesseewalker #horsetraining #stadiumjumping #horsebackriding #horses

Pretty Tiki 😍 I am 100% not ready for the semester to start on Monday... but at least that means I get to see this cute bay every day!

SHARK'S LYME TEST WAS NEGATIVE!!!!! Woohoo! He is still sound and doing good so he must have just tweaked something which doesn't surprise me. He is quite the sensitive horse ahahaha. I'm excited to get back to jumping, Shark hasn't jumped in about three weeks, and I'm sure he will love to get back to it too!!!

Normally I wouldn’t buy a horse unseen, but I couldn’t help myself when it came to this pretty young lady. This gorgeous chestnut is a 5 year old Selle Français mare trained in dressage. Her name is Nicean and she’s actually going to be turned into an eventer. While she was bred and trained for dressage she has show a natural talent for jumping as well. I’m very excited to see what the future holds and I’ll keep you updated when she arrives! —- #newhorse #horse #horses #pony #ponies #dressage #mare #prospect #sellefrancais #sellefrançais #eventing #event #eventer #crosscountry #xc #showjumping #sj #stadiumjumping #warmblood #sso #starstable #starstableonline

Shark has been staying sound and we had a great dressage lesson today! We have some bad weather coming to MD this weekend, so the dressage show may get cancelled, hoping it doesn't as I'd really love some feedback on how our dressage is going. Also I found a new supplement company called @omega_alpha_equine, and I am hoping this one will finally help keep Shark's tummy happy, and help him keep eating. So excited for 2019 show season, there is so much to look forward to!! #horse #horses #equine #hanoverian #hanoveriansofinstagram #eventersofinstagram #eventerforlife #eventer #eventing #jump #jumper #jumping #xc #crosscountry #stadiumjumping #love #myboy #dreamteam #c4belts #c4beltseq #c4ambassador

RISERVERNI IMAGES. — The green is hard to see with my theme, but it went so well with this horse! I am excited to start seeing the WEF posts! Unfortunately I will most likely not be able to make it this year, but if I do it will be more towards March. As far as my upcoming posts go, would you guys like me to start adding questions to my captions? Tell me what you all would like to see! How I could better entertain my crowd?

🐎✨🐎✨🐎 It’s a school night so I am not riding :( but I still wanted to give some backstory on Tito and myself! . Tito came to Oregon from Idaho in sorry shape in 2014. His owner Jenni, who rescued him, saw him on an ad and on a whim decided to snatch him up. When he arrived he was severely underweight, wary of every noise and sound, and had a giant gash on his face from thrashing around in the trailer having been pushed inside with no proper introduction. He was not fond of men or the farrier, leading us to believe every negative experience he had had up until coming to Oregon had been rooted in cruelty. I believe people saw how big he was going to be/was, assumed he was going to be a headstrong brute, and muscled their way into controlling him when in reality he was destined to be a sweet, tender, cooperate soul. As a result, he is skeptical of new people but this has gotten better with time. It also makes me feel very special to be in his inner circle of trusted individuals ⭕️ . I met Tito back in 2015 a few weeks after one of my moms had passed away in an unexpected event during a rafting trip. I was 21 and freshly graduated from college. I had a Thoroughbred named Blue but his structural soundness as well as the timing of mom’s passing influenced me to make the difficult decision to rehome him. I met Tito through my trainer at the time who said she had a friend with a horse who needed some TLC. I, too, was in need of TLC. The first ride I had on him had me in tears and we have been fast friends ever since. As a result, I feel very emotionally attached to Tito. He showed up in my life at a very fragile time when I needed animal comfort rather than human intervention 💖 . How have horses impacted your emotional health? ————————————————————— #equestrian #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #motivation #inspiration #fitness #riding #horsebackriding #horsesport #dressage #eventing #crosscountry #stadiumjumping #personal #draftcross #barnlife #barn #selfcare #gelding

Until a few months ago, I rarely fed treats. Boat would get them when we did carrot stretches, and at shows... but that was it. A couple years ago his ground manners were just so poor and he was so food motivated that even a thought of a treat made him pushy and rude. So I just stopped feeding treats altogether. . Obviously we do a lot of groundwork now, and his manners are a million times better. So I thought I would try to use treats to benefit our work. Boat can be so resistant and worried about lateral work. So on the ground the other day I retaught him how to do head to the wall leg yields with treats. Last night I asked for a few steps under saddle. I swear he remembered, and offered 2 or 3 soft steps, and I followed up with a treat again. Of course, I'm not going to give him food rewards after every movement, but I've been remembering to praise him a lot more and I will be experimenting with a couple food rewards per ride. Flatwork isn't nearly as exciting to him as jumping is, so honestly anything I can do to help him feel motivated and enjoy his work more is gold in my book 💕 . Do you use treats for training? Do you give them just because? Or are you on a strict no-treat policy like I was for so long? 💬⬇️
