    Caught this video of my two year old playing with his horse ball this weekend... He's always good for a laugh [​IMG] What a goober!

    Why thank you! He's quite a character. I can't wait to start him next year! I think he's going to be a very fun horse and he's got a "look at me!" attitude that I think will make him a big old show off in front of an audience :)

    The other horse is completely un-enthused! LOL! Cute!

    LOL yes... He is my 30 year old retired guy. He runs around with the youngster once in awhile but mostly he just ignores his antics. They are good buddies but there are definitely times when I can tell the old man is just rolling his eyes at the dumb baby [​IMG]

    He'll be my next dressage horse. My FEI horse is 20 now and I hope to have one more show season with him next year. Baby will get started end of next summer and will hopefully take the reins so the other guy can slow down and semi-retire. I've tried not to get too attached to the baby in case he doesn't like his job but he's a tough one to resist... So hopefully he has what it takes :)

    Thanks :) I have ridden for many many years - mainly eventing - but this is my first time training a horse (my 20 y.o.) to this level in dressage. 90% of the time I feel like I have no clue what I'm doing - the amount of knowledge you have to develop in this discipline is unlike any other type of riding I've done. I'm grateful to own such a good egg to learn this stuff on and as a result I'm hoping that I will feel much more confident in my knowledge when baby horse comes along!

    Eventing? [​IMG]Oh man you've got some guts! LOL! I've never really been fond of jumping though so I'm a little bias [​IMG]. Yes, a good schoolmaster is hard to find and definitely a treasure to keep. I wish you good luck with your endeavor!
