Joplin my 2014 Lusitano X filly

Finally got a little bit of video of my filly, Jo. She's such a good girl, hope to get her US soon. I do not use SRs while lunging any of my horses, just not my thing any more. I also do a bit of in hand work with her. Just off the caveson at this point though she is carrying a bit/bridle now. Will be interesting to see how different she is to ride after owning WBs for years now.

Boy I'll say she sure does! Wowza! Love a mare that's built solid like she is and of course one of my favorite colors too. Nice to get to see her.

Thanks guys, no idea why the videos won't play for some! I am really excited about Jo, I love her brain for one and I love her movement. Big mover in a smaller package (15.2 right now). She definitely inherited Saphiro's canter. Watching his video, that canter is what stuck out for me and why I chose him. Exvet the color was a definite plus and was guaranteed!

Her dam, Anna (she is the one I lost to colic fall 2016) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater
Anna was Han/TB by a G line stallion and out of a TB mare that went back to some good sport lines of Bonne Nuit and Cormac. Big hip came from the TB side.

Her sire Saphiro https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater

He is not a trappy mover as many of the baroques are, loved his conformation with a good loin. So many of the baroques can be weak in the loin. Jo also got the higher set neck from Saphiro.

All in all very happy with the cross and excited to work with a different type of horse than what my WBs are. She is so people oriented but not in the dominating way the WBs can be. Her dam was very soft too though, so she has good genes for good mind on both sides.

Thanks SF I am so in love with this filly! She is 3rd generation mare line for me, so it is exciting to see what I have movement and temperament wise. Cannot complain!

First ride on Joplin was a complete non event:) It was windy, we were in the middle of a clinic with pop up and people in the gallery. Jo just went out and went to work easy peasy. Her lunging was short and sweet, her in hand work showed how smart she is and climbing on her with Cedar as support was so much fun.

Congratulations! Those maiden voyages are the best especially when they step up to the plate.

Congrats!!!

Who is Cedar?

Do you have a trainer that works with the baroque breeds?

Mine definitely does not need to be pushed forward like the WB...

Thanks! Yes I do, she is Cedar Potts-Warner, assistant trainer to JP Giacomini. She rides for the most part Iberians, though her two personal horses are OTTBs. JP breeds and trains Lusitanos and PREs, with some crosses in there.

Unfortunately Joplin strained her DDFT and suspensory branch during TO over the clinic weekend so I only got the one ride in. Vet is pretty positive with the prognosis, will find out more Wednesday week. With her other genetic side I am able to push her forward more like a WB, though she is way easier to move her feet than my WBs are. She's quite the relaxed young horse with a fabulous mind.

So incredibly proud of my filly Joplin as we did our first trot steps US this weekend with no drama or issues. Joplin is exactly what I hoped for when I bred her dam a Han/TB to Saphiro a Lusitano stallion. She has 3 lovely gaits, a great mind, kind and sweet and just such an easy young horse to deal with. She is showing me how sensitive she will be to seat aids in the little riding we've done so far. I am so excited for our future.

I also have to say what a fabulous trainer to work with Cedar Potts Warner is turning out to be in working with my youngster. She has a great program in working with these young horses and I really appreciate the assist.

Did you get any pics of her at the clinic? Sounds like that little injury she got earlier has resolved. That's good! I agree that Cedar has apparently developed into one heck of a rider and trainer. It's so hard to find someone to work with just-started horses.

I did MC, just have not been able to post any yet. Got done with the clinic and have had appointments with my parents for 3 days now.

The injury she had in October was very minor, a "sprained ankle" is what my vet called it. She is shod now behind to support her behind. She is a bit chubby but otherwise looking great. I'm very happy with how we fit together. Being used to riding the bigger WBs, was not sure how I would feel on Joplin at 15.2/15.3. She is big bodied though and fits me well.

Cedar is just awesome with getting the youngsters going. She obviously does this quite a bit and has a definite program that is very horse friendly. Now to find someone to help me here that has enough experience to be an asset.

Love her color and her substance! Congrats on her development.

On another note, I too have been seeing a lot of doctors' waiting rooms lately. Hang in there.

Joplin is really gorgeous and substantial! I bet she doesn't feel "short" at all. Enjoy the journey and keep us posted.

Wow Khall, you must be very pleased. You two 'fit' very well, and it must be great to have a good young horse trainer to help and give you both confidence.
