SSH stepped out of their comfort zone today and came out to the Dripping Springs Ranch Park & Event Center for their DSRP Dressage Holiday Classic Show!

Annie has been hard at work prepping Only A Certain for her dressage debut! I can’t be more proud of this teams progression this year!

Annie and Mabel have both made such progress in this new event, and even more progress as a pair. They recieved great marks from the judge on their presence as a pair, and some wonderful feedback for how to improve.

They came back 1st in their Intro Test A and 3rd in their Intro Test B! Way to go!

Huge thanks to DSRP for always putting on a great time! Thank you to Penny Reeves for all of your support and encouragement on this new venture! And of course Lily Sellers and Melissa for keeping all of us in line!

✨SOLD✨

Ultimate Heat aka ”Hudson” is a 2013 APHA (RR) Gelding standing approx 15.2. This boy is for sale due to no fault of his own, just unfortunately isn’t the right fit for his new owner.

Hudson would excel with a single rider with a soft hand that has goals to show at the 4-H or Open Show level. He has made great progress since being in our program after having quite a bit of time off. He does not need to stay in a training program, but would reccomend guidance from a trainer if a more novice rider.

He is going along great on the rail and for showmanship. Has been started in an English saddle and is doing well, has also been started over poles. He has been ridden in small periods around the property but has not been “trail ridden”. I personally think this boy could excel in the Western Dressage Pen with proper training!

Hudson was nominated to the Breeders Trust (expired) and the Kentucky Paint Horse Incentive Fund.

Located in Dripping Springs, Texas. Offered at 8,5xx, open to offers!

**SOLD**

Who is in the market for a new English saddle!

2008, 17.5” Antares, 3 AA L Flap. Medium tree.

This saddle has seen its use, but is structurally sound. Was purchased as a schooling saddle, but I’m not jumping anymore so I’m not using it as much as I should! Is best suited for schooling, lessons, colts, ect..but I have shown with it in its current condition.

All damage is cosmetic, if I was keeping I would get the knee rolls re-stuffed but is not needed to ride.

Does not come with leathers or irons, but willing to sell CWD 54” Leathers and Black Compositi irons with it.

Located in Driftwood, Texas. Willing to ship at buyers expense. Asking 1️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣

Carol has been working so hard to accomplish the milestones she did this weekend! She has gone from the horsemanship being one of her weakest classes to marking a 76 1/2!!! All of this on a green horse she’s shown once before, showing one handed with the big guys! I’m so excited to see what this team will accomplish in a couple weeks in Waco!!
