This is my AQHA gelding Tiki I’ve had him since april and I was mainly focusing on his jumping and dressage until about a month ago. He got nasty wound right about the heel of his hoof on his front right which is keeping him form jumping for a while, so I decided why not try using him for what he was bred for? so I slapped my western saddle on him and went for a ride, he has a long way to go but I think for a horse who has had very little western training in his life he’s doing alright!

Please Judge horse only! I know what I need to work on in my riding and I am getting used to my western saddle again!

Thanks!

Schooling Ziggy

This is my 6 year old paint gelding ziggy! I bought him back in february for only $100 because he was a horrible ranch horse. I guess his true calling was jumping! he’s only about 15 hands but he’s very athletic and tries his heart out!

I know the photo is a bit blurry (it was snapped off my cell phone)  but please judge both horse and rider as best as you can

Opinons On Bates Saddles

I am finally going to invent in a decent saddle for the first time in my life and I really like the bates hunter jumper saddle, However I am wondering if anyone on here has any opinions on bates saddles, or if anyone has any suggestions to a different brand of saddle? I want something comfortable and durable, I want a saddle that I will love for years to come I dont want to settle! so please give me all your comments, opinions, tips, and suggestions!

Hunter Question For Rob

Rob,

This is Tiki you have judged him a few times recently, and I have a question for you about him. I have started to think about what path I want to take with him. He is not fast at all he’s very slow and steady, he’s very quiet to his fences as well. So I was thinking about trying to take him the hunter route, but his is fairly pigeon toed in his front feet and people have told me that judges will mark us down for that. What my question is, is will Tiki being pigeon toed really effect us that much in the hunter ring?

This is my horse Tiki jumping his first “big” oxer. my eq isnt great in this pic because I wasnt prepared for him to jump quite so big, I already know what I need to work on. Please judge Tiki!

Tiki’s 3rd time jumping! Please judge horse and rider :)

this is my 10 year old AQHA gelding Tiki. He is slightly pigeon toed in his front feet and dude to that no one really ever gave him a chance, I ended up getting him for free and I was told he would never do much more then basic walk trot and canter. A few weeks ago I had my vet out and after getting the green light form my vet I decided to see how he would like jumping! this is his 3rd time ever over fences! please judge both tiki and I!
thanks- Kendell :)
