Walking with your Horse into the Paddock at Belmont Park [01:21]
It is always exciting and nerve racking to see your horse enter the paddock for the first time to compete in his first race. Here is Lake and Ludlow entering the paddock on Opening day at Belmont Park on April 29th to run in his first race. At this point we had no idea how well he would do, finishing a closing fifth on a tiring, yielding turf course against open horses. We are very proud of him and can't wait for his next race!

Roger jumping and flat, beginning of April [04:06]
*Dear you tube - I do not claim copyright on the music as it is not mine* Hey guys how is everyone! Had all this footage of Rodge from the past week and a bit so thought I'd better chuck a video together quick smart! Been doing a bit more flatwork with the boy which has really helped his jumping, he is starting to flex and bend and finally getting the hang of this working in an outline business, lol. We have changes of lead over jumps now, leg yields, and have sorted out the rushing at jumps which means we can do individual fences without placing poles and have striding! Yay! :P Took him next door and popped a small course (about 70cm I think) just to see how he'd go as we had a jumping comp planned, which annoyingly got canceled (for the SECOND TIME!) *insert bitching and ranting here* SO. We found out that unless we do just freshmans sj comps which are as rare as hens teeth apparently, we have to become a member of EFA, or HRCAV to actually go out and compete. EFA membership renewals are in 2 months, but the problem is I have ants in my pants NOW, so HRCAV it is! We are going next week to a rally, and if it works for us we will join up, and hopefully start going to some comps *woo hoo* lol. That's pretty much all my news, if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask, and while I'm yabbering on, Thank you to my 310 subbers!!! Thanks so much for watching/reading/liking and commenting! :) Luv Katie xoxoxo

Roger - 2nd and 4th rides [03:41]
Well it's official, Roger is the new love of my life, hahahaha :) This was Saturday and yesterday with the Rodgie pony, I've been a bit slack with the video making so thought I would combine the two rides! Starting to see improvements from him bit by bit, he's starting to come round in dribs and drabs, and even doing a bit of leg yielding today (will have to get that on film for you all) so really pleased with how he's going. Got him in a nice soft bit which is good, he's not heavy in my hands and pulling which is what I was worried he would do, as he had spent a bit of time dragging me around the paddock on the end of the lunge, lol, but he's lunging a lot better now. Actually not sure if he'd been lunged at all, he would have been if he was a race horse? Hmm I'm honestly not sure! Anyway hope you enjoy - while I'm here I wanna say thank you to my 245 subbers! Really appreciate all the support and lovely messages and comments... Keep em coming, it really does make my day when I have video comments! No crit or on my riding please, I'm back in work with my coach to get it all sorted, I know where my faults are and am working on them. Not trying at all to look pretty up there, just getting the boys working nicely is my top priority :) Thanks so much for watching!!! xoxoxoxo

Ex race horse Toby - Flatwork Dec [03:52]
Hey hey! This was from like, a week ago, just been slack putting it up! Just a bit of flat work with the Toby pony, main aim at the moment is suppling him up (if that is even a word? You get what I mean anyway! :P ) and getting him to go in a steadier rhythm, rather than worrying about jumping. Most of the ride from that day was done at a walk - at least the first half hour, did a bit of long and low, taught him a bit of leg yielding which he got the hang of pretty well I thought. Trying to get him out of the mind frame of just because I put my leg on, doesn't mean we go 100 miles an hour, lol :) Most of the trotting footage we caught was on the right rein, he seems to not be flexing so easily on the side, so did quite a bit of work in the trot and canter too. Anyways, I won't bore you with too much blabbering on, just thought I would clear that up before I have 100 people at me that I should ride both ways etc etc... Just because it is not on camera, does not mean we didn't do it! :) No crit on my riding, concentrating more on his way of going, rather than how I look, for the moment anyway. Thanks so much for watching and thank you to my 201 subbers! Please leave me a thumbs up and a comment, I absolutely love reading them all!!! Luv Katie xoxoxo

Grassy - The Red Smith (G2) [02:46]
Grassy scored his first graded stakes win in the 51st running of the Grade 2, $150000 Red Smith, charging widest of all down the stretch to edge Rescue Squad by a length in the 1 3/8 mile turf race. Ridden by Joe Bravo, the 4-year-old son of El Prado tucked in along the rail well behind Strike a Deal, who led through a half-mile in 51.52 and a mile in 1:43.37 over the soft course. Rounding the turn, Bravo tipped Grassy to the outside and the gray colt responded with a rousing late run that carried him under the wire in 2:20.06. "The minute the gates opened, he gave me this sensation like 'Yo jock, don't worry about it. I got this,'" said Bravo. "He gave me the sensation that at any time he could've gone and run 'em over." The victory was the second in six start this year for Grassy, who in his previous race finished third, beaten 1 ½ lengths, by Winchester in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational over a yielding course at Belmont Park. "Off his race in the Turf Classic, we thought this was a good spot for him," said Ben Colebrook, assistant to winning trainer Christophe Clement. "He put in a big effort that day. Today, he was even more impressive." Owned by Adele Dilschneider and Claiborne Farm, Grassy returned $4.70 for a $2 win bet as the 6-5 favorite, and earned $90000.
