equestrian real estate broker: Ready to Tango? - 05/29/16 11:51 PM
Tango is well on his way to being ready for the 2016 Show Season!  He's worked hard all winter and early spring and will be heading to the Chattanooga Charity Horse Show in just a few short weeks.
Over the last couple of weeks we've been working on "rating" his speed.  In other words, I've been trying to get him to SLOW DOWN.  The photos in this post were taken about a week ago and right after they were snapped, our ride devolved into a bit of a fight.
We fought over his refusal to WALK.  Yes, sometimes Tango needs to walk calmly … (3 comments)

equestrian real estate broker: Wordless Wednesday - Tango! - 08/19/15 09:40 AM
Finally got around to completing the edits on Tango's video.  On this day the arena was too wet so we just worked a little in the driveway.  He's a completely different horse when I take him outside so even when the weather is not great, we still try to make a few laps at his "outside speed".  
Tango is the most wonderful and careful partner that I could ever ask for and I feel beyond blessed to be his Mom.  He will be with me for the rest of his life!

equestrian real estate broker: Saddlebred Sunday - Tango on Thursday - 08/09/15 01:27 AM
Although we had a bit of rain on Thursday morning and the arena was a sloppy mess, we still got in a few laps outside in the driveway.  A "normal" horse would have been fine in the arena, even with the mud. 
Not Tango! 
Why?  Too clumsy...he's a "tripper".  Too fast...Tango plus mud is not good, it's too slippery for him to corner quickly.  Too risky...he just got new shoes on Monday and pulling one off in the mud could damage his feet.
So, we settled for a few passes down the driveway.  But only a few because I don't love the gravel for … (15 comments)

equestrian real estate broker: A Little Play Makes All the Work Worth It - 07/28/15 08:36 AM
Tango tales continue today with what was SUPPOSED to be a training session.  We started working inside but he was being a bit of a slug so we decided to go outside.
The IDEA was that he would go around the arena ON THE TRACK under his own direction, like a good boy.
Tango, of course, had other IDEAS.
Other than constantly running back to Mommy in the middle of the arena and going to check to see if he could go out the gate, he didn't do much of anything "productive".
He did have fun, he was proud of himself and although he didn't … (10 comments)

equestrian real estate broker: Come Along for A Ride With Tango - 07/23/15 09:32 AM
*Everything is still crazy in my real estate world so I decided to focus on this today*
I need a Go Pro!  I can only hold the camera at the walk but I thought you might enjoy a new perspective on the Tango-man
After we finished our workout we were just walking around inside the barn, cooling off and catching our breath so I grabbed the camera and this is what we saw.
I hope to get a Go-Pro that I can use to video my ride at all of the gaits, he does 5.  Walk, trot, canter, slow gait and rack.  I'm sure … (14 comments)
