After sharing Gordon's book with one of my "littles".... I'm reminded of how great "the system" truly is...
"If you want to learn slowly, learn quickly
If you want to learn quickly, learn slowly"-Gordon Wright
Riding and training are skills that need to be honed and mastered... do you think Serena played once a week ? How about Michael Phelps? Just saying folks:)

Trainers: We Have To Do Better For Our Horses And Riders - The Chronicle of the Horse 04/05/2023

Trainers: We Have To Do Better For Our Horses And Riders - The Chronicle of the Horse After a fantastic winter circuit, I have to comment on something that I’m not completely sure how to fix, but it needs to be discussed. I don’t have clients, so I can write about this without some client feeling like I am talking about them.


Having horses living out has all sorts of hazards. They can get kicked. They can roll and get caught next to a fence. They can run and slip and fall. They can get loose and get on a road.
There are so many risks.

BUT----Having horses confined has just as many risks, just different ones.

Many studies have shown that indoor risks are probably worse than outdoor risks, because thousands of years of evolution created a species that lived in groups and wandered freely.

Still, either way has plenty to worry about----

I get it, a majority of kids love to jump. I do too. I look forward to my weekly jump schooling session and competitions. Jumping is part of the motivation, for me, that goes into flat-work.

What I struggle with is the kids who who jump everyday, any-day. Whats more infuriating is the parents that encourage it.

A pony or a horse only has so many jumps in its life. A pony is not built or bred to be jumped everyday. Especially now that we are in the middle of summer, the ground is rock hard.

I just have to go on social media and witness the daily array of photos and videos of kids jumping their ponies. Day after day.

There are three reasons why as a general rule, my horses are limited to jump schooling one to two times a week.
-The basics. Limiting my jump schooling sessions encourages me to focus on the flatwork. anyone who had me as a coach will have heard me say, 'jumping is just flatwork over sticks'. One wise coach taught me this years ago. 99% of the issues I have jumping can be corrected by going back to the flatwork.
-Injury prevention. Horses are not designed to jump and jump and jump everyday. You risk lameness and the potential of a pony 'breaking down'. The impact of daily jumping is increased when the ground gets rock hard, like right now.
-Boredom. My horses love to jump. Just like humans horses get bored of doing the same thing again and again and again. Every week my horses routine is a mixture of hacking, flat-work, fitness work (especially Hippo), and jump schooling.

To the parents, this is your job to educate your kid. And its starts right at the beginning when they are learning to jump. Its saying 'No, the pony has jumped enough', when they plead to keep on going. Its your job to listen to the coaches when they say enough jumping. Its your job to teach your kid about the idea of quality jumping over quantity jumping.

A horse/pony only has a limited number of jumps. If for nothing else then the sake of the horse think quality of quantity, less jumping better jumping.

P.C Jane Thompson, throwback to Taupo 3DE 2018, Hippo's most recent eventing start.

MU One Last Zip - 2021 Sale Horse 10/28/2021

Dublin students 🙌🏻

MU One Last Zip
Barn Name: “Minnie”
Red Dun AQHA Filly
Born: March 9, 2020
Sire: Doc O Valentino
Dam: Zip to Chip (Zips Chocolate Chip daughter, Zippo Pine Bar granddaughter)

Photo Taken: Fall 2021


MU One Last Zip, also known as Minnie, is a stunning red dun AQHA yearling with a unique star, stripe, snip, and white markings on three legs. Her compact build, charming personality, and exceptional pedigree make this filly an outstanding performance prospect. We expect her to be around 15 hands at maturity. Minnie has been raised at the MU Equine Teaching Facility and routinely handled since birth. Her stellar pedigree is full of horses that have excelled in pleasure and ranch related disciplines. Minnie’s graceful, agile movement and outstanding conformation make her a great prospect to follow in their footsteps.

Minnie’s sire, the late Doc O Valentino, was a 15.1 hand red dun AQHA/IBHA stallion that was owned by the MU Equine Program during the last seven years of his breeding career. In addition to producing outstanding offspring, this stallion was also used to teach our students about stallion management and handling. As a three-year-old, Doc O Valentino was the IBHA National Futurity Champion in western pleasure. He was an incredibly versatile sire, with offspring winning titles in the show pen and also working livestock on cattle ranches. His offspring are used in a variety of different disciplines including western pleasure, horsemanship, western riding, reining, roping, competitive trail, mounted shooting, and ranch horse. Doc O Valentino produced IBHA Reserve World Champions and Open ABRA Reserve World Champions in western pleasure, as well as earners of over 250 AQHA/IBHA show points, 80 AQHA AllAround, and Reserve All-Around wins. Minnie’s paternal grandsire, Doc O Mos, was used as a working cow horse initially. While never trained for the western pleasure show pen, he was such a talented mover that his owners campaigned him in the pleasure industry where he was named Senior Western Pleasure AQHA World Champion, Senior Western Pleasure Congress Champion, as well as Western Pleasure Maturity Congress Champion. Offspring of Doc O Mos have earned over 8,300 show points and placed in AQHA Congress Top Ten. Minnie’s paternal granddam, Sharpressive, was an IBHA point earner that produced multiple IBHA World Champions and an AQHA World Show Top 10 earner in halter. Minnie’s paternal bloodlines also include Docs Malbec, a Reined Cow Horse World Champion known for his versatility and athleticism as a sire. Docs Malbec sired multiple Congress and AQHA Champions in western pleasure, reining and working cow horse, with offspring earning AQHA Superior Awards in western pleasure, team roping, calf roping, working cow horse, and tie down roping. Additional paternal bloodlines also include AQHA Hall of Fame inductees Doc Bar and Poco Tivio.

Minnie’s dam, Zip To Chip, is a 14.3 hand bay mare with a patient personality, naturally level head set, and elegant jog. Prior to her breeding career, Zip To Chip was shown locally in amateur western pleasure and showmanship. This broodmare produced a total of eight highly sought-after foals for the MU Equine Program, selling as far south as Georgia and as far north as Canada. Zip To Chip’s offspring are athletic and easy to handle. They have excelled in western pleasure, all-around events, and recreational riding. Zips Chocolate Chip, Minnie’s maternal grandsire, was an NSBA and AQHA Hall of Fame inductee and an AQHA World Champion. He was named an AQHA Leading Sire for western pleasure and performance horses, with his offspring earning over $2 million and over 44,000 AQHA points. Minnie’s maternal granddam, Blythe Impressor, had an impressive show career, earning over 180 AQHA points, two AQHA Superior Awards in western pleasure, and Heartbeat Limited Amateur Western Pleasure Sweepstakes Top Ten placing. Offspring of Blythe Impressor have earned over 315 AQHA performance points, a Superior Performance Award, and eight performance ROMs in western pleasure and all-around events. Minnie’s maternal bloodlines also include AQHA and NSBA Hall of Fame inductee Zippo Pine Bar.

Minnie has been trained by a number of students of all experience levels. She is comfortable having her face, ears, eyes, nose, body, and legs handled. Minnie is relaxed for catching, tying, grooming, spraying, and vacuuming. She confidently walks over cross rails, ground poles, and a raised wooden platform. Minnie has been introduced to a multitude of novel objects including a large bouncy ball and tarps. She also maneuvers through cones and other obstacles quietly while wearing western tack. Minnie stands for routine farrier care, vaccinations, and deworming. We are currently working to perfect clipping, lunging at the walk, trotting in hand, and loading on a step-up trailer. Minnie is routinely handled by novice students, due to her age, we recommend an experienced handler to continue her training. Like all of our horses, Minnie is up to date on all routine care including vaccinations, deworming, Coggins testing, farrier care, and dental care. Minnie is AQHA 5-panel negative for genetic diseases, as both her sire and dam have been screened and are negative.

Minnie is part of Doc O Valentino’s final foal crop, as this stallion passed in 2020. Minnie’s dam is now retired, with this filly being the final foal of her breeding career. Minnie is a gorgeous, versatile filly with endless potential as a western performance prospect. This filly’s easy-going disposition, pleasure breeding, and balanced structure are sure to make her a barn favorite. Minnie is being offered for sale in the 15th annual MU Online Horse Auction & Fundraiser with online bidding closing November 11, 2021 at 7:00 pm CST. An in-person Sale Horse Preview & Silent Auction will be held at 4400 E. New Haven Road, Columbia, MO 65211 on November 6, 2021 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Buyers are encouraged to review each sale horse’s individual portfolio that includes pictures from birth to present, complete health records, journals describing each training session, and extended pedigree information (e-mail [email protected] with the horse’s name to request a digital copy). This sale is planned and produced by students in the Division of Animal Sciences, with all proceeds directly funding equine educational opportunities at the University of Missouri.

here here! If I didn’t know better from being involved with other sports, I would have believed that this is the way. NOT so!
Triathlon, swimming, cycling- cmon horse folks- can we be sportsmanlike? Everyone else gets it:) Ive been saying this for years!
Kudos to this brave author for saying what so many of us feel and take every day! cheers🍀🏆💕

Dear Horse industry,

Stop being awful.

Stop putting others down for the sake of one's own prosperity.

Stop the whispers in the warm up ring.

Stop the snarky remarks behind closed doors.

Stop with the clicks and underhanded complements.

Stop with the need for newest and latest fashions or tack sets but never riding your horse in fear they may get dirty.

Stop manipulating others words or actions.

Stop normalizing poor sportsmanship and start normalizing folks who work hard.

Chances are if you've had horses long enough you've encountered some sort of this. From the competition world, to trail riders, to rescues, to top level riders, it's everywhere and it's terrible and it's got to stop. It's got to.

I've met riders, young and old, who are petrified to ride infront of people because some where along the line, someone told them they weren't good enough. I've seen talented people quit because of gossip and I've seen people give up on what they believe in because folks made them belive they were only 1' tall.

When you see a rider kicking them selves after a bad ride, tell them great job for hanging in there and give them some tips.

When you see that girl show up in the rusty old bumperpull, know she likely put everything she had into her entry fees.

When you see an organization fighting for what they believe in, fight with them.

When you see the girl too shy to ride, ask her to help you out by hopping on to keep your horse company because it would be an awfully big help.

When you see the girl scared to death in line up remind them why they are there and they have this.

When you see the girl discouraged over progress, remind them how far they have come.

The world is full of ugliness, horses should be our escape, not a place we feel belittled. We are all incredibly blessed to have Equines in our life. Becoming better Horseman is hard enough without having folks tear you down.

Please start normalizing raising each other up.

-Erin O'Neill 🌿
