General Shanray wins the red ribbon at his first show.
General's feelin' pretty good about scoring a ribbon here... he took home 2
second place ribbons; not bad for a little horse nobody wanted!!
student's pony is a dapple gray also, so the two of them really caught the
judge's eye. Everyone just raved and raved about how gorgeous he is and he
would have brought home the 1st place ribbon in English pleasure except that
a big, rather loping chestnut Quarter Mare's downward transitions were a tad
cleaner than Gen's, but we'll get it next time. His gaits were apparently so
nice in fact he allowed me to come home with a second in English Equitation.

Can't ride 'em ifin 'ya can't stick to 'em and he's smooooth...
I really like all of these and out of 15 or so pics there wasn't a bad one
in the bunch. Print what you want, but this one shows how much an electric green horse off the track can be naturally collected in just a short while.
"I love my Daddy, cuz he spoils me rotten!"
Male bonding session?
E, this little gelding is really sharp, you can
literally show him something ONE time, and he's got it! Then he'll "tell
you" how he'd like it done the next time...too much direct rein, not enough
passive, I'd really like to have my jaw and neck back and I'll happily do it
for you! He'll do anything if you know how to listen, he is very, very
smart ( and accomodating if you'll ride him the way he prefers which is as
quiet as possible) He has too much brain power for anything less than
dressage! I think 'Nissima has got him beat on the natural jumping ability
Hope y'all had a great holiday season, we sure did!

Just wanted to let
you know that Ronnie took General on his first trail ride Sunday
over at the Shakerag Hounds course and he says, "Gosh, this horse
rides like a dream!" To which I replied, uh huh, how did I know
this Darling? I must be psychic...Anyway, looks like we've
got not one but two show stoppers here at Bennett Farms, everyone
comments on how good the two of them look together, they
really could be twins. Anyway, the more we work at it,
the more the two of them will hit this little "rocking horse" canter
where we can actually go down the trail holding hands. Really
Looks like I've hit the lottery twice
in a row!
Thanks for all your help,
PS Will send more pics soon!
