TBT - way back! (1999?) No ShowSheen was used in prepping this yearling. Just good, old-fashioned “elbow grease” - which appears to be a bit of a lost art these days #hunterjumper #standardbreds #rubbingyearlings #horsegrooming #shinyponies #elbowgrease #currycomb
I took this photo last night while doing chores. This is Shy Sister,26 year old Standardbred mare. She was a 'love at first sight' horse. She has been a part of my life for almost 20 years. ❤️ #winterscene #winterphoto #ilovemyhorse #standardbreds #standardbredsofinstagram #standardbredlove #standardbreds #standardbredsroc #standardbredmare #horse #horseart #horsesofinstagram #horselover #happyhorse #horsesofinstagram #baymare #sealbay #sealbayhorse #greathorse #superhorse #hearthorse #love #nofilter #iphonephotography #iphonephotography

Tonight's project was showcasing two former racehorses in their current home together. Pictured at the top is Frisco Knight, Sire Stakes 2YO Colt winner in 1999; bottom is Master Oaks winning at York. Centre the pair are pictured together at the beach on a fun ride. Knight is now 20, and 'Woody' is now 16. #standardbreds #standardbredsofinstagram #harnessracing #embracethepace #exracehorses #racehorsetoridinghorse #lifeafterracing #nothingstandardaboutastandardbred #promotingstandardbreds

Pic from ages ago @ our first dressage 2 gether. We had the best ride yesterday his training is going so well he walked over poles then he trotted over trot poles and then cantered over canter pole and did a double the double was meant 2 have 2 strides in it but he did 1 big 1 so we chucked a pole in the middle and he was sooooo good and he did a really good slow canter on both reins on the right leg and rounded on the bit oml love him so much soz didn’t get any new pics.

I'm not sure whether having a super-smart horse is a good or a bad thing. When out on rides Baxter frequently stops and rubs his head on his front leg. I decided to loosen his noseband to see if that would alleviate his discomfit. At the same time Baxter discovered that he could remove his neoprene ear covers by shaking his head. I countered by attaching them to his bridle. Success! Until, whilst out with him and Bounce (in the middle of a thunder storm), I stopped to swap from Baxter to Bounce. Whilst I was busy running up stirrups and letting others down, Baxter was busy rubbing his head. Before I knew it he was standing next to me - bridleless! It's extremely difficult to put a bridle on a horse (with ears attached) whilst hanging onto said horse with nothing more than reins around his neck, AND holding an impatient mare who wants to get home during a thunder storm! To his credit, Baxter stood relatively still and I did eventually get his bridle back on him and we made it safely home. 2 days later and we're out on another ride. Baxter's noseband has been done back up to its original setting. His 'ears' are still attached and I've done his throat latch up an extra hole. The ride is going well and we're on the way home, heading down a steep part of Cades Drive when suddenly one of my riding companions shouts "Bridle!" I'm on a very green horse, going downhill and suddenly his bridle is dangling between his front legs!! Yikes!! I use the gentle voice command I've taught him "And stand" and the dear, sweet boy comes to a perfect square halt. He stands patiently whilst I unbuckle his bridle and put it back on him. To this day we have no idea how he got his bridle off that day but he has been banned from rubbing his head whilst out on a ride. Love my special boy <3 :D #standiesarebest #standiesofinsta #standardbreds #baxtersjourney #standiesarebeautifultoo #ilovebaxter
