Big Money AND the camera were fine!

This is the page where Elizabeth and Barry will share training tips and give updates on the horses currently in training at the farm.

Sunday's Training Session - Water Crossings!

Each Sunday the boarders and the "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm" do a group training lesson. We grab every horse and rider at the farm and work on our grids and jumping with Elizabeth as instructor and June as jump crew. This week we took a break on jumping to work on water obstacles. Who knew that one of those obstacles would be a Cadillac?

It is hard to escape Atlanta traffic even while trail riding.

Sir Cahill

Sir Cahill

Two weeks ago Sir Cahill learned to gallop through water on our trail ride. That weekend he crossed a very large stream and then walked up the stream to cross over to the other side.

Cahill has still not been too sure about that wet stuff so his training continued this weekend when we plunged him into the deep water of the Etowah River. Cahill willingly jumped into the water much to the surprise of Barry and Marie (on Darcy). He crowded Darcy as they crossed to the other side while Paula (on Joe Bear) and Gertjan (on Big Money) waited their turn to cross.

Notice Barry whipping Marie to hurry her across.

Big Money really took the plunge.
Big Money really took the plunge when he slipped on a submerged tree and fell down in the water. Gertjan is still smiling! Wait till he realizes his new digital camera is on the front of the saddle.

Lucky the tripod
Ten "Friends of Bits & Bytes Farm" enjoyed the beautiful Spring day at Dawson Forest in North Georiga.

Lucky was once again put into service as our tripod for the outing. He was so calm watching everyone getting wet. When it was his turn to go through the river he did so quietly while Elizabeth turned to shoot photos of the riders entering the river behind him.

Lucky is one of Elizabeth's favorites. Watch out. He could end up on the "Special Reserve" page!


Bailey wants to be an event horse! Bailey is fearless. He is loving jumping cross-country fences. Bailey is not afraid of deer. One evening this week he was jumping a line of fences in the woods with deer running alongside. Neither he or Captain were worried about the competition from the deer.

Captain Arias

Captain Arias has been schooling our small cross-country fences and chasing deer at the same time. He was not spooked at all by his jumping companions. Captain is available for showing at our farm. Please call to schedule an appointment.
