I love NOTHING more than horse showing, but sometimes four cups of coffee still isn’t enough and you find yourself feeling a little bit like Annie here, falling asleep face-first in a whole bag of Stress Free Forage. 🤣 #TripleCrown #AQHA #AFutureClassic This weekend, we’re resting up from doing Harriman, TN last weekend to head off to Lexington, KY next weekend! 🦄❤️

Our token little Walking Horse, Tucker, is trying to fit in with the jumpers - he found his way over some poles this afternoon, with plenty of pizzazz. 😜

Be unrelenting on horses having exceptional ground manners, and not just when being led or handled… in the stall, at the trailer… all the time, everywhere. Even these baby colts put their heads in their halters over the gate and then wait, regardless of if the way out is left wide open, until I am in perfect position between them and cluck to move off in tandem. ❤️ Why I breed and raise my own; we can start from the second they hit the ground! 🦄 I appreciate having barn help that is just as crazy committed to creating quality citizens and devoutly dedicated to excellence in their execution - every interaction these horses have IS training!

Walk N On Sunshine’s kids’ first exercise in Alabama! ❤️ Worked on a bunch of ground manners with Brynndalynn and she even learned to longe on the line. Tate stood in the crossties practicing his patience (and only tried gnawing his way through the ropes a couple of times, lol), while Ally Crawford Allen started shedding out his sweet self. 🥰 The suspension in that trottttttttt. 🤩

Fixed our stop, tidied transitions, softened and opened up our lope, did tons of suppling work and circles, and got back our changes! 🙌 Rode out a few little hop hops, but pleased with where we ended up!

All sorts of awesomeness arriving today! 🙌 Dagan-love’s long-awaited, much-anticipated, custom Stubben saddle is finally here from Germany, too! 🥳 Cannot wait for this rain to stop, so I can watch Ally Crawford Allen ride him in it!!! #StubbenSponsored #Ascend #PerfectPalomino #PamaperedLessonPony #LuciousLeather

📣 Scheduling the weekend of April 2nd and 3rd! 🥳

I need to know who all wants to attend the AHJA show at Westminster on Saturday and the XC horse party at Copper Top on Sunday! ❤️ You are welcome to caravan with us in your own trailer, or we will be taking the six horse, and spots are available on a first come first serve basis - mileage will be due at time of reservation to hold your pony’s place on the rig (must be received BY Friday 3/25).

These are great first events of the season! Hunters and jumpers get to knock off the winter dust close to home at the show in Birmingham, and then we all get to stretch our skills going cross country with friends in Florence! There is a level appropriate for EVERYONE at both places! 🥰🦄

It drives me crazy that my business FB page won’t let me post more than one video at a time because Anna is super cute in the hunt seat, too! She and I picked up half a point with a second place in the Senior HUS. This chick has some ring sour behaviors to work out and a ton of strength to build back, but then the mare will be unbeatable! Maybe, by the end of this week, I’ll have managed to share everything noteworthy from this past weekend. 😂 #QueenOfSuggestions owned by #DyerPerformanceHorses

03/15/2022

When you only have the teeniest of slippery concrete corners in which to warm-up, it’s good to be working on Western Pleasure, lol! A candid capture from this past weekend in a snowy Harriman, TN. Slow-mo voltes; everything circles back to having solid dressage skills. 😜 Love riding me some #QueenOfSuggestions owned by Tara Dyer #DyerPerformanceHorses! And, y’all, she’s just started getting back in the groove! Huge things are in store for this young mare’s future! 🤩

Monday moose-mammal is getting it RIGHT! He has the scope for big time tracks! 🤩 He was supposed to be getting listed for sale to pay his overdue bills (accrued the past year and a half he’s spent growing up and concurrently destroying everything within reach, lol), but he may just stay and win back the money he owes me by become my derby horse! 😂 If anything could make me want to do the hunters, it’s definitely Dan! Video clips in the comments - his first oxer and first one stride. 😍 He’s being the very best boy learning all the things! Thinking he’ll for sure get to go to KY in two weeks!!! Also thinking AmyandJonathan Smith should not be allowed access to stickers. 🤣

Trying hard to put together a post that encompasses everything wonderful from this weekend, but I came home to a fantastically full day, too, so it will have to wait a wee while, lol! In the interim, here is Annie’s jump off! Super impressed with her effort and execution! 22 seconds to fly over five fences is pretty freaking fast! 🤩 You can even hear the judges sitting next to Tara going “Good job!” at the end of our run (they sound slightly surprised)! 😂❤️🦄 She won the class and qualified herself for World yesterday; she is also well on the way to winning the national high point again, if we want to keep hauling (these diesel prices make me seriously stoked to now have the option to stay home though, since we already earned what we needed to get us a trip back to OKC in November). Love that she was sweet, focused, and happy all weekend! Best warm-up we have ever had AND in a seriously skery coliseum! Baby red mare is growing up. 🥰 AmyandJonathan Smith Ally Crawford Allen

Having fun mixing it up this weekend! Schooling Anna Pleasure put a smile on my face; this mare makes you ride for it, but it’s sooooooo worth the workout when it gets right! And then Tara made me grin from EAR TO EAR when she WON her Horsemanship class! Harriman’s flow has been fantastic and this is serving as an awesome first show of the season! Everything is coming into focus for moving forward! 😍 Some video clippies will be posted in the comments once AmyandJonathan Smith gets to eattttt! 😂 Shoutout to our bestest assistant, groom, sidekick Ally Crawford Allen!

I always find the words I lack in the most unexpected places! I often talk about using cues slowly and influencing your horse with almost an aura of feel, but a RUNNER in one of my Facebook groups, posted this analogy about FENCING, and it’s the most perfect comparison to what I’ve been trying to describe about RIDING. Lol!

When you pick up a sword for the first time you will be slow and awkward. This is frustrating, but refuse the temptation to try and become a “FASTER” fencer. “CHASING AFTER SPEED IS LIKE TRYING TO CATCH SMOKE”. If you try and pursue speed, all you will accomplish is HASTE. Haste is the enemy of first class fencing. Speed is a lie the untrained mind tells itself when it sees an action it cannot follow. The TRUTH is a combination of TIMING, CONTROL and FLUIDITY. FLUID MOTION, even done slowly, will always arrive before a hasty strike. CONTROL will allow you to move without wasteful motion that will slow you down. TIMING will eliminate the need to move fast almost entirely. There is no need to get somewhere fast so long as you get there AT THE RIGHT TIME. SLOW IS STEADY, STEADY IS SMOOTH, and SMOOTH IS FAST. ❤️🦄

The picture of fuzz-butt Keifer, standing amidst a ton of other horses’ hair from previous grooming sessions yesterday, is simply for tax because he is precious and I’m praying it encourages God to send back Spring! 😅

I have yet to take a picture that does this baby mare true justice, but she is the most perfect creature in person. 🥰 She was free jumping 3’3” for fun last night while free longeing. 🤩 I cannot wait for her 2YO birthday/first ride party the end of May! 🙏😂 #myjoidevive

Dan is turning into something niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice!!! Super satisfying to see him start coming together! 😍 I don’t get to work him often, since he is a personal pet project, but a few more efforts like he gave me today and he’ll have earned himself a ride on the rig and a stall at the show sooner rather than later! 🤩 He thought it was fun to do big horse things with Hailee, Emma Smith, Dagan, and Ally Crawford Allen today, but he missed X and Melissa; he said it was cool to match steps with them, while he was on the longe line, when they came to play the other day! I’ll put a few video clips in the comments! 😁

I could not be more proud of Peri or his person! And it makes my world go round that they love each other as much and work together as well as they do! Peri was pleased as punch with himself yesterday; you can see it all over his face! His confidence is building and he is enjoying his job… things that make my trainer heart happy! 🥰 Lori has been working her booty off to be the best rider possible for pear-bear, and it’s paying off big time!!! 🥳

It makes me seriously proud, as a breeder, trainer, owner, instructor, to know the babies we produce are so good-minded and well brought along that they can be used in lessons, when need be, to help teach beginners ground work skills like longeing, leading, loading etc. Keifer may look like a scraggly, feral nine month old colt standing out there in the pasture, lol, but, if he were shed out, he has the manners to go show in hand today. 🥰🦄 #FuturePerfect #StallionProspect #SoRiveting #KrymsunsGoodKarma

Little Tucker’s already glowing up on FPH groceries, and he is catching on quick to all things ground work! He said being a baby stallion in boot camp during breeding season sure is exhausting though; so many mares to ogle. 😜

Learning ALL aspects of equine facility management this morning, including improvisation and problem solving. When the gator starter goes out aaaaaaagain 😑, you get practice backing the farm truck (bless it’s sweet broken bones 😂) down the barn aisles to load/unload hay, grain, and manure buckets. Ally Crawford Allen may have wanted to throw up the entire time, but she has successfully navigated the path down both barns three times now (she’s also learning the laws of conservation and wishing she would have thought ahead to loading the poo while unloading the hay, lol)! Trailer towing lessons are next, so she might as well get great at this in the meantime. 😜 You’re welcome fellow roadway patrons - farm kids know how to handle themselves BEAUTIFULLY behind the wheels of all things big and small, short and tall! She’s mad at me for “always having to teach her something,” but Jonathan suggested she use the tractor, so at least I’m not doing that to her… just yet. 🤣 #WorkingSTUDENT
