Dusty Summer (Jellybean)

Jellybean is a 2011 appendix mutt. Her breeder named her Dusty Summer, and the blog is titled accordingly. I bought her when she was eighteen months old and have worked with her ever since. She has definitely been an eye-opener. With her sassy attitude and bravery, she promises to be a fun ride in whatever we tackle. Currently, Ashlynn is riding her in lessons.

Good Graces (Gracie)

Good Graces is a 2005 Hanoverian mare out of Repent You Sinners (TB) by Gouverneur. We picked her up on a tire kicking trip to a craigslist ad rather unexpectedly. She is a very sweet and good minded horse, albeit a little lazy with a jumping problem, sometimes. Robert has taken her to a GAG event, and he hopes to take her adventuring a little more often. Gracie’s show record:

2014 Mar High Point Farm Bluebonnet Derby – 3rd Green as Grass

Have and Have Knots (Knots)

Have and Have Knots is a 2002 (ish) model something or other. He certainly has something gaited in his pedigree. He came to Maggie when he was abandoned in her pasture. He is extremely athletic and loves to jump. In his past life, we think he was a trail ride horse or maybe a wannabe cow horse. He came complete with some mental baggage that we have been working through for a while. I have been riding him since early 2013 and competing since 2014. He joined my personal stable in May 2016! Our show record is as follows:

2014 Mar High Point Derby– Eliminated (part ii and part iii)
