Post subject:  Lexie - Now under Saddle & Harness

I thought I would share some pictures of one of our mares :)
We didn't put her in foal this year so we could educate her under saddle & harness (our first horse that we can now work in harness...rather exciting)
She has been back now for a few weeks & hasn't put a foot wrong & is now going to be my daily riding horse until next July when she will be too heavily pregnant to ride.
I've attached some pictures of her in work :)

Love that cantering photo with the ducks just making it out of the way.

That sure is a mighty tall carriage. Have you restored it at all, or was it bought in tht condition?

How much fun that looks, it looks like Lexie is enjoying herself too.

I also have to add, there is obviously NO mud in your paddocks, look how clean those feathers are :shock: wow!

Oh and by the way who's next in line?

Thanks everyone, I would love to claim the carriage however it belongs to some friends of ours who broke her in for us.
I plan on getting one for us at some stage in the next 12 months :)
The feathers do stay fairly clean on our horses other than the stallion who loves to wallow in the mud....
Next up for us in Jester who was our first foal...now 18 months will go away to be started in 12 months then worked lightly under saddle & harness for a couple of years before starting full on work to be shown under saddle @ the sydney royal in 2016 :)
