Video Tuesday

He needs all the kisses!
I have a couple videos of Prisoner that I thought I would share with you. He had today off, but yesterday I did some solid flat work and then cruised around the jump course again because sprinklerbandit was there ready with a video camera (my phone).  He was feeling great until he got rolling along and suddenly the blue barrels were surprising.  The video shows the runout and then the awkward second attempt where we make it to the other side.  We actually jumped it again quite well, but my phone chose that moment to swap from SD card to phone memory and glitched it out.  I was really impressed by how unfazed he was after the shenanigans, he just continued on with life like no big deal.  Bad jumps are going to happen no matter what, but it is how we recover that dictates the next steps.  Hmmm, sorry got all pinterest quotey there.  Tomorrow is going to be a spin in the dressage saddle again with beautiful white polos wraps, I love dressing up!
In-case you don't want to watch the video



In case you are wondering about the SSR Prisoner as the video title, I'm following in sprinklerbandit's ideas and using Prinsoner's race trainer's initials plus an R for racing.  Seems to be popular for horses to have initials and I think his have a good ring with Prisoner.  Like I said, I'm terrible at changing names so Prisoner has stuck, but he goes as P-Diddy as well.

  3. Awwww, you and P Diddy look great!

    As far as the blue barrels, it just looks like he wasn't sure he was going over them until the last minute: in other words, I don't think it was him being naughty, I honestly just think he was like "Mom, where are we going?" and didn't have time to process another jump so quickly. He's doing WONDERFUL though, you guys look like you'll be quite a kickass team, and I love his chilled out attitude!

    Also, that trot is DREAMY :)

  6. I've started a thing!! I love SSR Prisoner--very classy. I also love how it ties their past into their present. We didn't "rescue" these guys. We just moved their training in a new direction. :-)

    PS I even watched the video with the sound on. You know what a big deal that is.
