Snickers And I
This is my favorite picture, a common but oh so special momment,
she does this often and I cherish it. The first
time you ask an Arabian to do something they say, "What?" The
second time you ask an Arabian to do something they say, "Oh ok."
The third time you ask an Arabian to do something they say, "I have
a better way!"~*~*~"Riding
defines me. It's who I am. It gives me a sense of self-worth" -Patty
Dressage is life, the rest is just details!
The Art of Dressage, When horse and rider think and move as one.
"Dressage is a strange dialectic,
this [opposition between two interacting forces] is what's interesting
about it. Dressage is totally not about having a horse obey you
because you want him to do something he doesn't want to do, It's aout
letting the horse express himself through movement and obedience. It's
about having a horse respond to you because he is excited about doing
it for you. And that's a very cool thing" -Patty Mayer
I'm not in full attire here nor is she.
But you can see she is accepting the bit
well, and she is a bit down hill, but the
over all picture looks nice. She has
an even tempo and a soft content face,
meaning she's not at all upset,
but willing instead. And this picture is
from the new stable I'm now keeping her at,
a might bit better than where she was before! If you click on the picture above, it will take you to Snickers Web Stall Six which contains more pictures of Char and I during a schooling session. When looking closely at the eye, you may see
the reflection of the distant pyramids... or maybe a bird in flight. Only
the true Arabian has that special eye! ~*~*~ Where in the wide world can
one find. Nobility, without pirde. Friendship, without envy. Or beauty
without vanity? Within the Horse. ~*~*~ He took his mighty hand and formed
an image out of the sand then with a forceful wind He made the breath
from within in a cloud of thunder came the sound of hooves on the ground

Allah called to the South Wind, "Become solid flesh,
for I will make a new creature of thee, to the honor of my holy one, and
the ambasement of mine enemies, and for a servant to them that are subject
to me", and the South Wind saud "Lord do thou so", then Allah took a handfull
of the South Wind, and he breathes there on. Creating the horse saying,
"Thy name shall be ARABIAN." "Arabians adopt their owners as one of their
own." ~*~*~ "My treasures do not chink or glitter, They gleam in the sun
and neigh in the night"-Arabian Proverb
