Trying again, hope this is the one!

Postby Backyarder3 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 11:06 pm

I tried a little Morgan mare on Tuesday and she seems to be in my barn now! Cute as a button and sane too. No riding yet as she;s only just arrived but I hope to be in the saddle soon!

Congratulations! I've always liked Morgans. Tend to have sensible personalitys and plenty of forward. She's very pretty too. Is she a cremello or a palomino?

Her papers say she is perlino, she's 15, has done a few endurance rides, had a few foals and some western shows. She's also been ridden English. Sweet nature.

started lunging a bit , she's very responsive, a bit unbalanced in the canter but she tries hard, She's a pleasure to work with.

quinta, I don't know much about Morgan bloodlines but she is 99.5% foundation, I see a lot of "full Lippit" in her pedigree.
Orono, we are taking it slow , I started riding her and because she is quick and has a lot of "go" I am working on transitions within gaits, only w and trot under saddle so far. Nothing is consistent yet but I am getting comfortable in the saddle and getting to know her. Once I get a bit more fit and familiar with her I will start taking lessons, I think that will be soon.Also want a few canters under my belt before then.
These are pics of my second ride, in the first I was asking for some bend and in the second I was giving because she was in a nice frame and soft.

I'm hving fun with Lottie. We've done some hacking alone and in company, shipped 4 hours to spend a week riding with my neice in lessons and on the trail...she settled in right away..even though she was in heat...Lottie and I even participated in a trail clinic that was so much fun. I'm no where ready to do a dressage test, but I'm having a blast. I had a lot of confidence to regain and that is comng along nicely! I'll post some pics of the trail clinic.

I'm having fun with her, been on a few hacks and have had her off property , actually took her on a mini vacation and did lessons and hacked and she settled into her new digs immediately.
She needs a lot of correct schooling and I need a lot of lessons...but we're working on it. Someday I hope I'll have some dressage show photos!
