Zarthan in Johannesburg

Dear Judy

Just to let you know that Zarthan has arrived safely in South Africa. He will be standing in quarantine for a month or two.

Thanks again for being so kind and helpful. Gisèle can’t wait to start her lessons on him.

Kindest regards

Hi Judy (plus Sue and Diane),

I just had my first Colorado lesson on Winston (Wannadoo) and am so happy.
He is a joy to ride and I know he will teach me so much.  He is also the most affectionate horse I have ever met.  He really loves to be loved on!
What a gem!  I am especially happy that he is settling in well despite the cold and yet another new environment.  On Tuesday when he got his first time on the lunge line he really took advantage of the chance to let off the stress he had been under. I have never seen a horse display such athletic ability and literal “airs above the ground” that would have impressed even the Spanish Riding School!  By the next day he was fine on the line and the next day Karen rode him.  We will take things slow and easy, but so far he is doing very well and seems very happy.Thank you so much for all your help – I am so excited about all the new things that I will learn with Winston.I will try to keep you up to date a bit as things go on.  DC is also doing very well, but Karen exercises him earlier in the day so I haven’t watched her ride him as yet.

All best wishes to you and your wonderful family!

Beau installed at his new home

Hi Judy

Just to let you know, he arrived safely this morning. Michelle and I rode him this afternoon and he did not put a foot wrong.

Here is a picture of him in his new home – it is a beautiful yard and he will be really well looked after. You can tell his previous owners that he has found a good home, and send them this picture.

Thanks

Sue

News Of Tristan

Dear Judy:

My friend at the barn took this beautiful picture of Tristan while I enjoy some vacation time over the new year. Shannon described him as the Brad Pitt of horses and I totally agree!

On Christmas Day, he gave me 7 clean and straight 2-time tempi changes. On the 26th, he gave me 2 clean one-time switches, back to back. We practice piaffe every day. I am just simply amazed at how this horse is so willing and intelligent and just a pleasure to ride every day. It is hard to believe that I have only been riding him one month but of course, I have the best help from Steffen and Shannon!

Please tell Remy that he is doing well and giving me a lot of joy.

Happy New Year!

Vivaldi

Hoi Judy,

deze ochtend vroeg is Vivaldi in Calgary geland, alles is goed verlopen. Na vet check en customs is hij om 7u gearriveerd op stal. De rit van de luchthaven naar de stal vond hij iets minder prettig gezien hij afscheid moest nemen van zijn reismakkers en alleen moest verder reizen. Eenmaal toegekomen was hij niet zeker of hij wel van de trailer zou komen. Mits aanmoedigingen vlotjes mee naar zijn voorlopige quarantaine stal, ietsje gegeten en gedronken, lekker gerold… En daarna gelijk naar een kleine paddock waar hij nu lekker in het zonnetje staat te bekomen van lange reizen en hij wat kan socializen vanop afstand.
Op stal vinden ze hem er goed uitzien en is de belangstelling groot… en hij is zelf niet veel afgevallen, gelukkig maar.

Volgende update volgt na de eerste rit, we geven hem eerst nog een 2tal daagjes om volledig te bekomen en de nieuwe routine gewoon te worden.

We zijn allemaal zo opgelucht dat hij veilig gearriveerd is en dat alles zo vlot verlopen is.

Nogmaals bedankt en tot mails,
Marc & Gaelle

Hallo Judy,

Aangezien ik u had gevraagd of Bossa Nova ingevlochten op stal kan blijven staan ivm met wedstrijd, dacht ik u even een kort verslagje te sturen van de wedstrijd van vanmorgen. Hij is superbraaf met invlechten, en kon inderdaad gewoon los in zijn box staan daarna.  De halve stal verklaarde me voor gek, met windkracht 5 tot 6 buiten op een grasveld met 6 ringen in ‘the middle of nowhere’ te gaan starten met een paard waarmee ik over het algemeen lekker in een geïsoleerd binnenbakje rijd…”O,” zei ik ,”maar Bosso is niet anders met wind, op gras, of op een groot terrein. En hij kijkt nergens naar, dus dat komt wel goed.” Dat kon m’n stalgenoten niet echt overtuigen, want ja, “je bent nog nooit ergens geweest met ‘m. En hij kijkt hier toch ook af en toe ergens naar? Én het is een Krack maal Cocktail. Weet je wel zeker dat je gaat?” Toen de bangmaak-verhalen begonnen, vond ik het wel tijd om op te stappen. Na wat twijfel of ie nu wel of niet het wagentje in zou gaan, ging Bosso mee op pad richting wedstrijdterrein. (laden is nog niet z’n favoriete hobby…). Hij werd in eerste instantie op het grasveld wel even twee keer zo groot als normaal, maar na een paar rustige drafrondjes was de spanning er aardig af. Zelfs toen er een paard in volle galop bokkend zijn ruiter eraf gooide en voorbij sjeesde, bleef Bos bij de les.

De proeven gingen fijn, hij keek zoals verwacht nergens naar, z’n aanleuning was erg fijn (die wordt steeds beter, het was even stoeien daarmee toen ik ‘m net had gekocht, maar dan heb je ook wat, zullen we maar denken ) en we konden met een tevreden gevoel met een lang teugeltje weer richting wagen. Door m’n eigen superDOMME fouten (in de eerste proef VERGETEN te groeten! We kwamen binnen, halt, en weer verder, ja, dat kost punten…) en in de tweede proef een keer verkeerd gereden, gingen we net niet met Bosso’s favoriete kleur oranje naar huis…Maar tweede van de 14 combinaties, en winst, op onze eerste wedstrijd, en ook nog in de storm, vond ik zelf niet zo verkeerd ! Ik zei net tegen Bos: “joh, je bent nu officieel M-paard!”, maar het boeide ‘m niet echt…hij was lekker aan het kliederen met z’n slobber.

Een vriendelijke groet, en ik kan het niet vaak genoeg zeggen: wat heeft u me blij gemaakt met dit fantastische paard!

Welcome my new horse in Prague

Dear Judy,

I would like to thank you for everything. Our yesterday meeting and the whole stay in Holland was perfect. We had great time and now I am looking forward to welcome my new horse in Prague :).

I am sending you two memories for yesterday. On one of the photo I can see two beautiful blond ladies and also very beautiful horse. What a combination :)!

I am also sending few photos of Petra and her stallion just for imagination. He has a great spirit and worked very hard for her. Now is time to find him new home. She is thinking about our brainstorming yersterday so lets see and I let you know.

Have a great day. We are leaving to Normandy on Wednesday 🙂

Many Greetings

JUDr. Kateøina Øíhová, MILE., Ph.D.

Anthony / Unico

Hey Judy,

Thought I would send you out a note as show season has finished in Alberta. I must begin by saying that Anthony is a LOT of fun.  I only got out to 3 shows as we purchased the new riding stable and I have been VERY busy.  I showed PSG and I1 and at the final show, our Western Regional Championships, we emerged the champions.  I am now home for the winter and working like crazy on the piaffe passage.

I think Anthony is a complete Albertan now.  He has enjoyed his full acre of private turnout daily; having learned to graze and stretch his legs.  He is funny to watch.  When he wants water, he puts his head up and has a nice, contained canter to the waterer.  He has his drink and then canters back to wherever he was last grazing.  Most rewardingly, when I go to the gate to catch him, he usually trots or canters to me!  I’m not sure he is ready to face the very cold winter but at least his barn is heated so he will only go out as it suits him.

Hope things are well for you, Joe and your little one.

Zandor

Hi Judy,

How is everything with you ?

We had a good news about Zandor for you. Last weekend, we had a dressage game. Zandor participated in a L class with Ko. He got a score 61.8% and 5th place!!

It was a first time challenge so that many people,  judges and instructors, were interested in him. Then, I took part in second level class with Zandor. He got 1st place and we received cash awards!! 🙂 We are so proud of him. Thanks to you, we are very happy with him. Next month, we will take part in another game in Tokyo. So, I will let you know about it.

Cheers

Bonaparte alias Bugatti

Just to let you know that I took Bugatti for a lesson today with Andrew Gould and also my trainer, who trains with Carl Hester, also came to watch me!

Bugatti was super. They both really liked him. Andrew said that his walk and canter were fantastic, that the horse had big scopey paces and was very uncomplicated.  He said that he finds the lateral work very easy and seems very good in the contact.

My trainer was lost for words, all he could say was stunning and fabulous mover, and he usually has a lot to say! He said that the horse was better than I said he was!

Andrew also said that he is a real stunning looking horse and that we will do very well in competition!

So not bad really!!! Watch this space!!!!!

Very best regards, Marlene x

Beth & Karen

Hi Judy!
Karen and I had a complete blast riding with you!  Our six days went by way too quickly.  I learned some good things, experienced well trained horses, and loved watching you as you rode.  You have a great feeling and empathy for horses – and the riders!

I’m thinking this is your birthday weekend.  Karen and I will imagine you at the Elite Equine Auction Gala.  It will be a spectacular night, I am sure!

Thank you again for a wonderful  horse vacation!  I really hope we can do it soon again.

Fondly,
Beth

First ride at third level with Winston

This was our first show since Winston’s colic surgery a year ago.  It was just the “ride a test ”  at Singletree, but Winston was super good. Karen made us wear our full show rig so note my fancy new helmet with wider brim against the sun, and my fancy new light weight jacket (Italian?) that is quite fitted but very comfortable to ride in.

We have plenty of things to work on.  Getting a 72.5 was fantastic ( my highest score ever) but consistency is the name of the game.  We’ll see how things go one show at a time.
I’m very proud of Winston!!!

(Photo’s by Phil. Today we are off to Kansas City to see Melina and family!
The house is “staged” and will go on the market soon. Needless to say, we are exhausted.)

Yoni en Society

Hoi Judy,

Het gaat echt supergoed met mij en Society!!!

Je weet nog dat ik met hem ben gestart in Juli vorig jaar in de klasse L2 en nu mag ik al ZZ-licht gaan starten!

Aanstaande zaterdag ga ik voor het eerst Junioren starten en heb me ook geselecteerd voor de finale
regiokampioenschappen! Hoop dat wij ons dan kunnen plaatsen voor het NK!!!

Verder was ik met Society, in mei dit jaar, ook geselecteerd voor het Talententeam Zuid-Holland!

Ben zo ontzettend blij met hem Judy, want evenzo belangrijk is dat hij zo ontzettend lief is en voel iedere dag meer
dat we echt een combinatie worden!

Veel liefs,
Yoni Heijmans

Hi Judy! How are you?

I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful week at your place. I learned so much from you and couldn’t think of a better way to “catch up” and fast track my riding back to a reasonable standard after having so much time off riding consistently.
Unfortunately I am unable to ride the horse my friend was letting me ride anymore but I am having lessons with this lady I told you about…unfortunately the FEI horse I was supposed to be riding is 23!! And really should be completely retired…I am having a much better time riding her 2 other horses-the whole time I am reminding myself about that right shoulder and contact! … I really feel like my riding has improved so much thanks to you!

There isnt much around the jind of horse i want to buy so have decided ill probably import in the future. in the meantime I thought id let you know that I have been offered a riding job at a barn in Holland..so I may be going there in April or so next year! I will keep you posted as I’d love to come visit while I’m there 🙂

How is Uptodate? I miss him 🙂

Cailin & Fiorano

Hi Judy,

Fiorano has arrived safe and sound! He was great travelling yesterday and after a bit of lunging and a ride he went out for turnout today. He has been so perfect! Even with all of this strange snow. As you can see he is well bundled up and doing great! Could you please let his previous owner know he is doing well?

Thanks so much for all you have done for me! This is just the start of a great partnership for Fiorano and I. And even though it doesn’t look possible, our first show here is in 8 weeks….we just need to get rid of the snow!
