Hunter Under Saddle at the last show of the season! Sailor was FANTASTIC for me. We ended up getting a first in EQ for the first time ever, a first in over fences, multiple seconds, a third in geldings at halter, and two fourths. We ended up with our first reserve champion ever at a open pleasure show, and I am beyond proud. •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails

Flashback to winter when I started this big booger on a new mineral supplement and he was getting rugged everyday.. look how dark his coat went 😮 crazy
Sailor and I had a fantastic open show this past weekend! We showed in 10 classes, and placed in 9! We ended up walking away with reserve high point, and winning our over fence class! We got a first in equitation for the first time, and I couldn’t be more proud of my boy!! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
I love this mare so stinking much. But some days she really tests my patience. Like today, when she realized that she’s not the only horse in the world, despite never not being with other horses 😂. . #mare #mareproblems #baysbeforebaes #baymare #horseportrait #horse #lovehorses #horsesofinstagram #tennesseewalker #twh #horsetraining #animals #farmlife
Has to walk all the way around because he doesn’t want to walk through the deep water 😂😂
We had our ups and downs today. The first video was us clearing the jump with no problem, but the second video is Sailor wanting nothing to do with it and slamming on breaks. We ended today on a high note, and I can’t wait for the show this weekend! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
CAKED in mud and daring me to do something about it. Looks like her exercise today is going to be co-opted by a marathon grooming session—which I’m pretty sure was her plan all along. . #mare #mareproblems #lovehorses #equestrian #horsesofinsta #horsepic #tennesseewalkinghorse #baymare #tennesseewalker #baysbeforebaes
Figure 8! When you're riding, it's important to make distinct changes in your body so your horse can eventually learn to change its gait/speed off a simple change in your seat. This takes a lot of refinement, but is totally attainable with the proper amount of commitment! . . . . #howihorse #horstagram #horse #horsesofinsta #parellinaturalhorsemanship #parelli #naturalhorsemanship #horsewoman #cowgirlboots #cowgirl #morgansofinstagram #lippittmorgan #lippitt #morgansofinstagram #eventinghorse #eventernation #jumping #jumpinghorse #jumpersofinstagram #baysbeforebaes
And we had more rain over night 😁💦 Red already had a dam and now he has his very own lake 😂
Every pony needs a pupper 🥰
It finally rained! Hallelujah! We are muddy and happy about it 😆
Big cutie 🥰
Hazel and Sven at the first holmes ranch show of the season. Always the cutest pair 🦄 #poniesofinstagram #pony #horseshow #pleasurepony #baysbeforebaes
Sorry that you miss my rollback😂 today was a good day even though the weather was gross. Sailor and I did literally everything today in preparation for next weekend. We started with surcingle work which went ok, he threw a fit at the extended trot but he got over it. We than did about 40 minutes of flatting and patterns Did a couple jump turns and lines, not doing anything to insane and working on keeping a controlled rhythm He than got a bath and got his face and ears clipped We ended our day with about 20 minutes of trail and showmanship practice that went really well! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
*Insert inspirational quote* 😂
His knees tho🥰🥰 we have a big show coming up next weekend which includes halter, under saddle, trail, and even a four jump classic! I’m so excited. •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Miss these green grass days 😢 there is absolutely no feed in the paddocks anymore. We’re in drought and there’s bushfires all around us.. we need rain more than ever right now
It’s been waaay too hot to ride lately 🥵
Super speeder taking on the bounces lol. They barrels are set up at a one stride, but he has to large of a step to fit comfortably, so it’s better for the both of us if he extends. These next couple weeks are going to consist of a lot of surcingle work, rollbacks, and flatting. We have a pleasure show next weekend, so we are really needing to tighten up on our equation and showmanship •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Guess who’s last in the field 🙈🙊 throwback to Red’s uneventful racing career 😂 out of 17 starts, he had 2 wins, 1 second and 1 third. Poor dude just didn’t get his sir’s talents.
Just over a year ago, Red went through a pretty traumatic experience and cut his head open and smashed a couple of his front teeth in. He had to have the teeth removed as the inner pulp was exposed. The extraction was done by a professional equine dentist/veterinary and Red was not in any pain throughout the procedure. He is my gummybear now 🐻🤗 If you’re squeamish, don’t swipe.
My riding faces are superb. I have the last show of the season coming up. It’s a pleasure show, the first weekend of December, and than Sailor will get a small break, picking back up in late December, and we will start beginning out conditioning for the jumper shows starting in February. We will be staying at 3’3 this season, and will be most likely showing at First Coast, and the more competitive Grand Oaks. From the looks of it, we will have at least 1-2 shows every month, starting February. •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
My poor princess got a little tired on our hike, but my trusty steed saved the day. #fiddle #lacey #captain #myloves #hearthorse #standardbred #baysbeforebaes #mutt #childhooddog #myeverything #happiness #equine #dog #winter #trailride #snow #equestrian

Sailor is always ears up in the show arena😚😚 Happy thanksgiving everyone!! I’m thankful for every one of you, and obviously my boy right here :) •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
How Red feels about work 😴
Someone’s not sure about this working business 😂 but he’s such a cutie 🦄
I am so thankful you were too slow to make it on the track 😘😘😘
Old man should be good as new in a few days 😊❤️ #horse #horsesofinstagram #warmblood #dressage #eventer #baysbeforebaes #jerkface
I don’t know whether to call this a fail or be impressed... I adjusted the barrels after this, but this was truly entertaining. It was supposed to be a one to a one, but he took it as a bounce to a long spot. Obviously there is room to improve but can we talk about his tuck on both ends over the second jump? •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
What a hunk 😍
♥️♥️♥️
Hey guys, I know a lot of my non-horse friends would be tired of seeing Red on their newsfeed, so I made him his own account 😂 if you want to continue to see horse spam, then follow @theredequine 🦄🦄🦄
Welcome to Red’s very own page everyone ♥️
We had a great day today at the poker race! Sailor and Scout have always had a super competitive relationship, and man do they love to race. The trail was challenging enough today to make them think, but easy enough that it wasn’t stressful. I also got the opportunity to ride @yknot_show_team ‘s Sequoia, her new warmblood that needed a little help today :) •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Handsome man with his fitting bonnet and saddle pad😊 he has a poker run this weekend, so he will definitely have the chance to let loose! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Lol excuse my potty mouth. Sooo I’d say Sailor is a pretty cool dude. We did a chase-me-Charlie on Sunday, and boy did he prove to me he had some springs for legs. He reached the top bar, which is 5ft! Not only did he pop me out of the saddle, but he didn’t even second guess himself. We won’t be jumping this high again for a longgggg time, but I’m so proud of my boy! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Soaking up the last of the fall colors! Everyone is very fresh today, feeling winter in the air! . #baysbeforebaes #bayhorse #maresofinstagram #horses #horsesofinsta #fallriding #lovehorses #tennesseewalkinghorse
🤩🤩🤩 rocking that @_backontrack poll cover so Red doesn’t get sore 🤗
I forgot to take pictures of my donkey tonight.. but will be back tomorrow with my groom/camera man so maybe then I’ll have something to post. . . I’m working on my posture and position I swear.. 😬🙃 . . . . #horsesofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #dressage #eventer #dancingshoes #worsteqever #jerkface
Such a good boy 👏🏻👏🏻
Sailor was a great boy today. We just had a short lunging session, and practiced some obstacles for the obstacle challenge tomorrow. We also used a Liverpool for the first time today and Sailor didn’t seem to care at all :) •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails

Afternoon rides with this hunk ♥️
Look at those knees😍 we have an obstacle challenge this weekend so I’m excited to test out some new skills we have learned, such as side-passing. And no stirrup November starts tomorrow :) •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Someone’s feeling good and fresh this morning 😂
I’m back on a little editing kick😆 enjoy! I’m riding four times next week and will be focusing on something different every day! Give recommendations!! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Holy moly! In just 6 months I can’t even recognize my horse. It’s been six months of hardcore fitness, a lot of learning new things, and @seminolefeed ‘s ultra bloom to get Sailor to where he is today. Believe me when I tell you that I wanted to give up a few times. We took some hard falls, some hard loses, and some hard words from some people, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. If we didn’t have to put all the hard work in, it wouldn’t have been worth it! •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Sailor was a spunk ball at the show, but we somehow still managed to do really well and get some good pictures •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Sailor was a saint last week for his most recent large over fence lesson in a large time. We are having another jump lesson tomorrow since we don’t have any shows for about a month. I think white is my new favorite color on him •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Sailor was a fantastic boy at the show last weekend! We ended up with two firsts, three thirds, and two fifths. He preformed the best I have seen him at a pleasure show. •#smoothsailin#equestrian #horsesofinstagram #baysofinstagram #baysbeforebaes #pony #flat #showjumping #grandprix #hunter #jumper #gain #followers #followforfollow #followtrain #edit #horseedit #fail #horsefails
Spud was a dude today at aston! Dressage was a bit tense but great improvement from last time, 1 pole sj and an easy clear XC picking up a couple of time faults for being quick! So so happy as it's only our 2nd event together 💜🦄 - #spud #tyrellatopgun #eventer #eventing #eventhorse #irishsportshorse #irishhorsesofinstagram #instahorse #pony #showjumping #dressage #dressagerider #horse #horsesofinstagram #hedgehopping #jumping #crosscountry #bay #baysbeforebaes #kickingcancersbutt #willberrywonderpony
