Christmas Eve Ride

Santa brought Rosie a new blanket from this place.  Size 84 1200 denier medium weight turn out. Waterproof  and wind proof.  So now if I choose to clip her she'll be toasty warm!

Then I rode Rosie pretty briefly - basics only.  Here are couple of pictures that I love.

I can't see a whole lot of wrong from either of us..

Sure I could pick out little things... like my heel is not down, and I'm collapsing to the inside just a bit..

And some soft backing...

I'm asking politely and she's thinking about her answer...

 Then she answers with soft slow but steady backing of a few steps...

Now I know a judges perspective as we trot down center line...
Really shows how WIDE Rosie is!  Wow!

Halt and hold contact.. something that I've added very recently.


  1. Merry Christmas and Rosie look great.

  2. Rosie is earning a clipping, isn't she? =)

    Merry Christmas to you and all your family, two legged and four legged. And if you have fish or snakes, um, no-legged. :-P

  3. And she'll only get wider once she's carrying a lovely foal.

    Merry Christmas!


  4. That is some very lovely work. Great job! I will be contacting you about our get together very soon!


Happy Trails!
