Ozzy trotting around like his usual goofy self, head swinging in circles.

great shot. Look at that leg action! Do you ever do dressage with him?

he's only been under saddle for a little over a year. i don't show so he's never been in a dressage test. however, i do some basic dressage as part of his training. we're going to eventually do endurance. he gets VERY bored in an arena, and i have to undo all his training from the track. he has flashy movements, but hasn't found his balance yet.

race horses are tricky that way aren't they? Trained to run at the bell and stop at the finish and that's about it. All the race horses I've come across are... well, just a little bit insane.

well... he was in training for six years but never made it to the track. he likes to run, but he doesn't bolt and it's easy to stop him. he's nutty in a very unique way. haha. the training issues are mostly that he was taught to go with his head up and out, and he was drilled NOT TO CANTER. he canters under saddle and now knows how to bend and flex, so he's coming a long way from where he was :heart:

wow, six years without the track? was he not fast enough or something? The horses I've seen started training at 2 or 3 (absolutely ridiculous!) and put on the track at 3 or 4 and run for the next few years.

he was plenty fast enough. he had a great gait. however, he decided he didn't want to do it. he would lay down when he heard his harness coming, count a mile and a half on the track, then gallop off. every time he got close to qualifying, he'd get hurt, etc. it just wasn't meant to be. he was broke to harness as a late yearling, trained as a two year old, and was supposed to start at three. he bowed a tendon. he had six months off, started again, and as soon as he got fast, he hurt another leg. by the time he was six, my boss had pretty much given up. i got him in May of his six year old year. he's now seven and we're training for endurance.

ummm... our racehorses were all spoiled rotten. actually... most of the horses in my gallery are or were racehorses. you can flip through and judge their condition for yourself. i think you're probably thinking 'thoroughbred' when you say 'racehorse'.

ozzy is a standardbred (like most of the horses in my gallery). i worked with him when i had a job at the training center/track. i now work at a breeding farm, but missed Ozzy pretty badly so i contacted my old boss and he became my horse last year.

you should get a livejournal and then you could read my blog, see all his photos, and get all his updates. i haven't taken photos of him recently. it's been hot and i've been giving him time off so he can stay cool and dry.
