Jeff, Amy and I had a ton of fun at our very first American Driving Society approved Combined Driving Event. Goose and I placed 1st Training Level, and Jeff and Milo placed 3rd Preliminary Level. Goose was an absolute ROCK STAR on the marathon phase, and I feel so blessed to be learning this sport on such a talented well-schooled veteran. Amy is quickly becoming a stellar navigator on the marathon, and Jeff and I continue to learn and will be tuning up our turnout (outfit), skills and performance for next time. We owe it to our very lovely and very capable ponies! Love these boys!
Dunitwithashineyface and Amy Stoney - L3 and L4 Non Pro Derby finalists! They finished 17th L4 and tied 9th for L3 putting Otto's total earnings over $12,000. Well done!
Congrats to Amy Stoney and Skeets Whizard (Wilson) for rockin a sweet 219.5 to tie 3rd in the L4 and L3 NRBC Classic Challenge earning over $6,300. They also placed 4th in the $5,000 added Non Pro class. With over $41,800 in lifetime earnings this special little gelding is still as honest as the day he first stepped into the showpen. Thanks NRBC for offering a high dollar maturity, congrats to Champion Lisa Bissell on a great win defending her 2015 title. Kudos to the exhibitors/programs responsible for this deep set of 7 and up horses. This plainly proves that talented reiners can stay performing at a high level even with a few miles on them. Good job Amy and Wilson!
After trying to buy this pony since last fall, things finally worked out! I am thrilled to call myself the new owner of Flying Diamond Scoundrel, aka "Goose". Owned by Heather Schneider since a 2 yr old, this 12.3 hand 14 year old Welsh gelding has competed successfully in combined driving for many years. He is no doubt far more accomplished than I need, but I cannot dismiss my admiration and respect for any equine athlete able to play and win at the top of their game - regardless of stature, breed or discipline. Thank you Heather Schneider for entrusting us with this pony's golden years. I am SO excited and count myself truly blessed.
We have always really liked this filly, but she is becoming a BEAUTIFUL mare. And at a little less than 30 days total riding, she is getting freaky - she never lifts her neck! This is where she WANTs to be. Yet she is so round in the back and has such deep drive, she is always lifted in her back. She is just so cool, with stop on the brain all the time! We are truly excited about her. What a privilege to have a mare like this in our barn. See Pale In Starlight for details and more video....36 fresh clean radiographs as of March 2016.
