Josephine County Fair 4-H

I just have to say how very proud I am of three particular horse 4-Hers:  Jasmine, Kaelyn and Celena.  You girls and your mounts did TERRIFIC  at jumping and dressage this year. Each one of you have learned and progressed at jumping and your flat work.  It really showed during your classes this week.  I’ve […]

Eastern Slope Ranch Jumping Clinic, 2014

In usual style, the Jumping Clinic at Eastern Slope Ranch in Baker City, OR is always a blast.  The students, some new and some repeats, were attentive and inquisitive. Percy and Leslie Dickerson always do a nice job hosting the clinic.  This year with the help of Kevin Rasmussen and others, they added a cross-country course […]

It is already July and that means it is time for the annual Jumping Clinic at Eastern Slope Ranch in Baker City OR.  The clinic is on Friday and Saturday, July 18th &19th.  The focus will be on dressage, hence flat work, and over fences.  It is designed to challenge each rider, but to meet […]

Muti-Purpose Mares

Who says that dressage horses should just know dressage? Here at In Motion Sport Horses, I think horses should have opportunities to learn and experience different things. In this group of pictures, Tinkerbell is learning to be a pony horse, while Esmerelda learns to be ponied. The two mares, both of which compete at dressage, […]

Spring Fling Dressage League Show

Tinkerbell made her show debut on April 27, 2014. She showed at Training Test 2 and 3, placing 2nd in both classes with scores of 72.5% and 66.2%.  What a good girl!  Her owner Catherine Ulrey and I are very proud of her grown up behavior.

As Tinkerbell prepares for her show debut, she asks herself  “Are my ears really that long?  I hope the judge will like me anyway.”

Tinkerbell Under Saddle

Tinkerbell is a four-year old Oldenburg mare owned by Catherine Ulrey. I started her as a three-year old. She had a long hiatus in the pasture before returning to work this January. Below is a video of a recent training session.  She is headed for the dressage show ring this year!  

Galloping, Galloping, Gone!

For many, many years I enjoyed the work of exercising and training horses at various race tracks.    Here are a few pictures of those days gone by in my horsey life. I do have to say, I was very fit back then.  It was like doing three hours of aerobics each morning. The horses […]

Inspiration for Youth, or All of Us?

There once was a Dutch immigrant during the Second World War. He came to America with his wife and very little money. His skill set: horses.  His name is Harry de Leyer.  For many years Harry worked as an instructor and trainer for a prominent girls school in New York.  He happened upon a horse […]

Santa Comes To Visit Esmerelda

Not every horse is so fortunate to have Santa stop by and feed her carrots! Esmerelda, however, this year got a visit from the red and white clad Santa! She seemed most intrigued by the white curls that encompassed Santa’s face!  I wonder what is on her wish list…..
