Cross-country Schooling

Last weekend was a hot one in Hot `lanta. We got up early to beat the heat and loaded some youngsters into the trailer and headed over to one of our favorite places to school cross-country fences.

Charlie will make a fantastic horse for a determined Pony Clubber who wants to win! - August 20, 2005

Marie was so comfortable jumping Charlie she stuck out her tongue at the photographer. - August 20, 2005

Charlie, Snowdance Kid, Big Money, Cloned Colony and Era of Chanago were all quick to load and a blast to ride. Charlie and Snowdance Kid had never been away from the farm since arriving. They both loaded fine and took to jumping cross-country fences like a duck to water.

Big Money and Gertjan were off galloping the grass track and jumping all the bigger fences as soon as we arrived.

Sally and former Bits & Bytes Farm sale horse (now boarder) Cloned Colony got up some courage and learned to jump every fence! We are very proud of this pair. They have only been in training for six months.

Sally and Cloned Colony jumped everything on the course.

Snowdance Kid showed himself to be brave and bold - not refusing a single fence. "Kid" had only ever jumped the small cross-country fences at our farm. We kept him to the smaller fences as he is only four, but, he would have gone over anything we asked. He will continue his jumping training learning grids in the arena. It is important for young horses to get the basics down before jumping the larger fences. That way they will not ever be scared and start stopping at fences.

Our favorite fox hunter - Era of Chanago - with Barry take a small fence effortlessly. - August 20, 2005

It was a fun day for all and a great learning experience for the young horses. We look forward to going to more places with our newer horses as the weather cools down.

Summer Reading Suggestions
What Happens to Race Horses When Their Race Career Ends?

After the Finish Line by Bill Heller After the Finish Line by Bill Heller

Ever wonder what happens to a Thoroughbred when he is done racing? Go to our Links page for a link to the book.

"After the Finish Line - The Race to End Horse Slaughter in America"
by Bill Heller

 

After reading this book you will understand why Bits & Bytes Farm got into the business of helping find homes for ex-race horses. The lucky ones make it to our farm and find loving owners and a second career as a sport horse.

This is the time of year when the rescue organizations need funds to care for horses that would go to auction and possibly slaughter. Can you help? Go to our Links page and make a donation to any of the non-profit organizations listed. They need our support! You may not be able to buy one of our Thoroughbreds or to rescue one, but you CAN make a difference in the life of one!

Order After the Finish Line from Amazon.com.

Call or come by for a visit - but please call first!

Please call us to discuss which horse might be the best match for you based on riding skill, experience and equine personality. We do not send out videos because it is important to match the personality of the horse with the personality of the rider. We are matchmakers, not horse brokers. We have horses in a wide price range. Call us to discuss prices or to schedule an appointment. We'd love to have you come meet all of our horses--we know that it will be worth your time. Just bring peppermints!
