We had a great show yesterday! Everyone is now qualified for championships! We had rain, storms, winds, and finally sunshine! I am so proud of our team and how they handle themselves and their horses! All scores ranging from mid 60’s to 70%! Way to go team Roses to Reins!

I am not sure whether Carrie Ramsey's massive OTTB 8 year old mare, Saroca, is a true black, or a very dark brown.
Carrie got her just at the end of her not very distinguished racing career, 2 places in 18 starts, and has brought her along since.
These quiet, sound former race horses are available widely through various re-homing initiatives, and if you have the ability to do the retraining yourself, they can be lots of horse at pennies a pound!
They can do so many jobs, dressage, trail ride, jump, event, western disciplines, but the key, to avoid heartache later, is to try to get a sound, sane one that you can ride, and don't have to be a Beezie Madden to be able to train.
What a great show weekend we had for our first show of the year! It felt great to get the horses out and I am so proud of these girls this weekend! They all received qualifying scores toward championships but more importantly they displayed great horsemanship and teamwork! Abby and Dan blew me away with their calm and collected attitude. Addyson and Rain proved how hard they worked over the winter and just 3 mins after a big spook when in the ring like the team they are. Bella nailed her changes in her jump course and put down a beautiful round. Mari rode like she was laying the foundation for her show career and didn’t let the fact that Dude wanted to go home bother her. He decided the show wasn’t so bad and they had a wonderful second test. I am so proud of team Roses to Reins 🦄❤️🎉
What a great weekend!! We had such a fun Roses to Reins schooling show! We added a costume parade and potluck lunch too!

I can relate 😂
This was me at 19 years old trying to convert Sebastian to dressage. Oh, the good old days!
Update on Savannah (the most wonderful horse in the world): she’s finally eating today!! It’s been a very long 6 days of worrying about this girl! She not out of the woods yet but I’m feeling more hopeful than i have in days! She’s at home now and being watched like a hawk! Lots of love and care for her ❤️❤️❤️
It’s been a very tough weekend at the barn! Savannah was not feeling well starting thanksgiving evening. She was looking better then worse until I hauled her to the emergency clinic Saturday morning. It wasn’t looking good until this afternoon she finally made a turn for the better! She’s not out of the woods yet but everyone’s prayers are working! This horse is so incredibly special to me and so many other people. The number of people that are messaging me to check on her is heart warming. Hoping for even better news tomorrow ❤️
Had a great last show of the season at the PTS finals at Fields and Fences on Saturday! Teagan had a great first show with Savannah pulling two fourth place and one second place in the w/t individual canter division! Bella and Ashley did great in large flat classes with over 15 riders! They were both in the ribbons! When it was time to start jumping the rain came in but the girls kept smiles on their faces! Ashley got a second place and Bella fifth out of about 25 riders. Great job to all the R2R riders this weekend!
How Bits Work – Gag’s, Snaffles And Their Actions
We all know how bits work and we think that we know all about it, that it is not difficult to get to know how each bit mechanically operates. It is not
Congrats to Bella and Ashley on a great PTS show at Cross Winds yesterday!
Tomorrow at 6:30 we are having a going away to college party for Alysa. Please stop by if you can! A big thank you to her for all of her hard work and great job teaching lessons this summer! She will be back with us over winter and summer breaks!
So excited to be warming up for the PTS show at Fields and Fences in our new saddle pads!!
This is so funny, yet true. I'm pretty sure all of these have happened and it's only July! It's been a wild show season but a great one so far!! Love all of you! ❤🐎🐴🎖🏇🏅🏆
I want to talk about that person behind the scenes who does her best to hold the s**t show that is my show career together while working her tail off so that I don’t embarrass myself in the quest for a fifty cent ribbon. Even though this is about my trainer, I am sure this Continued
Horse Vision: Simulation shows a horse-eye view | AGDAILY
Ever wonder how a horse perceives its environment? From night vision to color awareness, this simulated video lets the rider take a horse-eye view.
I would like to announce a warm welcome to this beautiful girl to our farm. She just arrived yesterday and adjusting wonderfully! She is a lovely addition to our dressage lesson horses! Rozelle also specializes in being a wonderful trail horse and even likes to jump!
Congratulations to Diane on her purchase of Rozelle!!
What a great PTS show today at Crosswinds! Congrats to Kenzie, Ashley and Bella who all did a wonderful job today! So proud of team Roses to Reins!!
We had a very busy weekend here at the barn and away from home! We had a crew of men, Kevin, Brent, Terry, my dad, Kevin's dad, my step dad, and Jeff today, putting in fencing around the hay field!! I'm so excited to be adding 5 acres of pasture and getting ready for the outdoor arena!!!
Friday at Sorensen was a... umm a very exciting ride. Not exactly the harmonious ride you think of when riding dressage... more like riding a little ball of fire. Amador and I came back Saturday with relaxation as our only goal and we mostly achieved it, earning a 62.3% at 4-2. I am so very proud of him and can't wait for the next show!
Sunday we were at Marquis Dressage for the IDCTA show with rider, Abby and her horse Sox. They did a fantastic job! She earned a 71% in Intro B, 63% in Training 1, and 66% in Training 2. They were both a little tired for Training 3 but overall had a wonderful day!! They are now qualified for IDCTA championships for Intro and Training level!!
The new stall doors are up! The first of many spring projects and improvements 😊
🤔 yep!! 😂

Dressage Today Magazine
"Think of a horse standing at the edge of a cliff with his neck stretched out forward and down to peek over the edge, but he is rocked back on his hind legs so as not to fall. This situation describes how important the balance of the whole body is for a horse to be able to stretch and keep reaching and to later carry himself in collection. Therefore, to look only at the neck without evaluating the whole body of the horse is not sufficient."
