I bought my very first Appaloosa in October of 2009 from Winfield, Alberta. She is from OK Appaloosas.
So far I have done all the training myself. We have attended local shows and competed in halter and showmanship classes to earn ribbons.
Shortly after turning 3 yrs old I started to back her and now she is almost 4 and we are riding everywhere. walk, jog, lope, turns on the forehand and hauches. back up and working on the side passes.
She enjoys working and we both enjoy the trail rides.
She is very laid back, nothing seems to borther her. Super friendly and great to work with.
Her name is TRULY EZ with bloodlines from; Easy We Go, Easy Jet, Jet Deck, Moon Deck, Lenas Bar, Three Bars, We Go Charge, Apache, Scooter Bug, Top Moon and Spotted Bull on her dams side. Impressive, Three Bars, Tiger Leo, Bright Eye Brother and Mighty Bright on her sires side.
EZ is a red dun with a full blanket. Two hind stockings and a blaze. She should mature around 15hh
The summer of 2013 I hired a student to ride my mare and attend shows with her. We entered her in three shows with a total of 12 classes during the whole summer.
She did amazing, acted like a old pro and pinned in almost every class. Our last show we got 5 1st place ribbons and 1 championship ribbon. The office wall is filling up first. Can't wait till next year. Hopefully attend more shows and enter more classes with her.
