So just for the record, I think I have the most amazing horse in the entire world. Had so much fun this weekend at Waredaca, and Jester was a SUPERSTAR.

I want to thank all of the Waredaca volunteers and staff for putting the show together. It really was great. We did the Training/Novice division, which I recomend to anyone thinking to move up. So, Jester warmed up for dressage amazingly. Went into the ring and rocked it with a 35.5 putting us behind a 3 way tie for the lead with a score of 35. Stadium was so much fun, its been a while since I've jumped a Training stadium course. We had one rail, but it was just a small error of inexperience. He was an absolute star for everything else. Cross Country was a blast. Clean and fast. Overall great day!

Flat Lesson Tuesday

So, Jester and I had our flat lesson yesterday afternoon. Might I add that it was freaking HOT. But even so, the little guy was FABULOUS. We worked on some counter canter, and getting him a little more responsive to my seat before doing my test for this weekend. The test was dynamite. Consistent, even, back was soft and supple, and our lengthenings were some of the best we've done. Our canter could have used a little more jump, but that's something I have to work on. Now if only I could keep my leg underneath me a little more when I sit...SIGHH. Oh well, always something to work on. . Ready for Waredaca!

I'd like to thank the COTH for giving me the idea to start one of these. Haha! Now I'll have something else to keep me occupied when I should be working.

Welcome everyone to my fun little blog of Jester and I(and any other horses that seem to come along for the ride). The name On Time Eventing, kind of came as a joke, but ended up sticking really well. My farrier, always calls our barn very slow, because since we have so many horses, a lot of times when we go to pick up horses for him, we are always late. Therefore, the name is kind of ironic. The other part of the name my trainer thought of, and I thought it sounded good. Therefore On Time Eventing was born.

I only own as of right now, one horse, and those of you that are on the chronicle may know him..his name is Jester. I bought him off of the track almost two years ago, and is currently competing at Training level eventing in Area II. I will keep updates for him.

I also ride many of our farm's horses, working with some of the new school horses we get in, depending on their ability level and age, either just work with them a few times and put them right into the lesson program, or work with them for a show season and compete them to give them some show mileage. Welcome to my new blog, and I will update more later, off to class I go!
