Throwback Thursday is not just for Facebook anymore!

I have never participated in Throwback Thursday on Facebook before. Although I have been tagged in a couple of throwback pics, which always reminds me how long I have been riding and training horses! I always enjoy seeing throwback pics, so I thought that I would extend it to my blog!

Although my focus currently is dressage, I started out as an event rider. Here is a picture of “Lad” my first horse who was an Andalusian crossed with a TB. I broke and trained him as a newly gelded three year old. Together we did everything from hunter and jumper shows to preliminary eventing. He was very athletic and versatile, which looking back was a huge blessing. I still jump most of my dressage horses to keep them fresh and interested. I consider the cross training and hacking part of a program that improves the horses overall willingness to work. Having horses that are versatile is a lot of fun and keeps me happy as well. So, here is a throwback Thursday shout out to my first horse Estudiante Indiano who taught me so much.
