The Levade - Henry preforms the Levade and rears on command [03:39]
Henry rearing on command on the ground, with a rider and preforming the Levade. PLEASE READ BELOW to see how I trained him to do this. The clips and some of the pics are older. I will post more recent stuff when I can. ~~~ I started on the lunge line with him, I noticed if I had him face me and shook the whip at his legs he would jump up a bit and take off. I used this to my advantage by stopping him if he ran and praising him for the upward jump. I then combined that with the word UP he caught on right away the first time we worked on it. He learned to do a small rear in about a weeks time. I used a whip to signal him and the motion of my body towards him and with my arms up. Soon he would preform for both the word and the motion. He went higher as we kept practicing. I also would tap him on the legs occasionally with the whip if he was not going as high as before. If I would swing the whip at him the same way with out taping him he would also get the hint to go higher. ~~~ To get him to do it while ridden I took the whip and moved it up in the air near his head where he could see it and kept the word UP with it. He figured this out in 1 day as well. After that it was just a lot of practice to make it better. Now I can signal him with the word, the whip, or the motion of my arms all while on his back. ~~~ The Levade I did not train him for this in the traditional way. I took his rearing and asked him for collection and a head set while giving the command to rear. I did ...

"Wow! What A Filly!" - Mossflower - 1998 Hempstead Handicap [04:01]
Her name is Mossflower, she is a 4-year-old daughter of the Triple Crown champion Affirmed, and she streaked across the horizon at Belmont Park yesterday like a shooting star. Mossflower stayed undefeated by winning her sixth straight race in the sort of performance that grows with time. She outran five of the finest fillies in the land by 12 lengths and more, closed with a furious rush to break the record for the Hempstead Handicap and came within two-fifths of a second of matching the track record for a mile and one-sixteenth. And she did it all in the first stakes race she ever ran. The true measure of her success might be judged by the caliber of the fillies she outran, in this order: Glitter Woman, who has finished in the money in 15 of her 16 starts; Colonial Minstrel, who had a five-race winning streak; Ajina, last year's 3-year-old champion filly; Dixie Flag, a speed horse who had won three of her last four, and Royal Indy, winner of the Gazelle last summer at Belmont. After half a mile, Mossflower was running dead last in this all-star field, and she was still fourth after three-quarters of a mile. Then they turned into the homestretch, and Robbie Davis called for closing speed. In a flash, Mossflower blew past Dixie Flag and Glitter Woman, shot from fourth place to first, widened her lead to two lengths in the stretch and widened it to major daylight as they neared the wire. She closed her breathtaking performance 12 lengths in front of Glitter Woman, who nosed ...

NASCAR fan is hit and killed by lightning strike in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway (my response) [01:11]
(my response) Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman's home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday's violent storm, though it wasn't immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway's Facebook page that they never heard the weather-related announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. ''Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there's anything we should have done different,'' Higdon said. ''It's never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.'' Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large US flag flew at half-staff. ''Fans are like family to us,'' Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact ...

Barrel Racing in Versatility [00:54]
So here's the deal: it had just poured rain for nearly an hour, and the arena was disgusting. My horse LOVES the mud, but I wasn't going to just run him and risk an accident, quite a few other people had already scratched. We ended up getting 5th in the barrel racing part of the class (which consists of barrel racing, western pleasure, english pleasure and reining) :D
