Holy Crap Guys!!

I have a TON of updates for you! It has been a hell of weekend!!!!

1st~ Yours Truly has been chosen to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover!!! I will be picking up my Stang in March and Competing in June! WAhoooooooooooooooo!!!

2nd~ The Show was FANTASTIC!!! S&D did AMAZING!!! She placed VERY VERY well!! So congrats to her! She received a 1st for trail in hand 3 and under with her baby Diamond and received a two 2nds and a third and a 1st with Sugs! And now she's a show addict!!!

3rd~ Bella, the TB we were given, HAS found a terrific home!!!.

4th~ The OTHER mare that was also left to us by some asshat has been coming ALONG AMAZINGLY in her training!!! She will be ready for her first show shortly!!!

NOW, you will all have to excuse me as I am FREAKING out about being chosen. This is my version of Miss America!! LOL! Not quite the Olympics, but still!! They are VERY picky when it comes to choosing trainers for the Stangers!!!

How cool!!! You will definitely have to post a lot about that. i've been somewhat starting to read some blogs of those that have picked up a horse. Very interesting the differences in some of them. Good luck!!

Huge congratulations are in order!

(pops a cork from bottle of champagne)
Way cool.
Oh, you must be over the moon,girl!!!

A Toast, to TrainerX!!

(okay, okay, I don't drink, you get the sentiment)

Congrats on the successful show day, too!

A good news Monday, wow, how often does THAT happen??

Meghan/Blatant Animal-Related Idiocy said...

Congratulations, and I think I speak for us all when I say pictures will be needed!

Because, uh, you know, you don't have enough stuff on your plate :)

You should definitely talk whoever got Bella into blogging about her.

Trainer X said...

Yeah will do! And Thanks!! It's super surreal to me right now!! hahahahaa I'm still kind of freaking out!!

The Pale Horseman said...

congrats! I've always been an admirer of your training teqniques.

Anyone else think they should do this sort of thing with auction horses? Buy your fugly at the auction, train it and compete it to win the big cash prize. Anyone can enter. It'd sure be an incentive for some lazy BYB to get off their asses and train their horses and it would be even better for the horses who would otherwise end up unbroke, worthless and sold to the meatman. It would give them a future.

Cool! Definitely post updates! I love this blog.

nccatnip said...

Congrats!!!! GL- pass me your glass, I'll take two.

kestrel said...

Trainer X said...

LMAO! Thanks Kestrel! HA! Thanks to all of you! :)

CurtsBooks said...

Very Cool! OF course we all expect lots of blogging on the mustang & how you go about training. Good to your friend for the show, too.
Gotta send this fast as the electricity is having brown outs & trying to leave.

Congratulations!!! Keep us posted.

sterling said...

Whoot! Go TrainerX! Congrats! Have fun, and good luck!

Congrats about the show and the other horses, too! (Wow, how often does this happen? A blog entry about all good things on a MONDAY!!!!)

TallDarkAndSpotty said...

But wait... isn't standing on your horse's back and jumping through hoops of fire REQUIRED for the mustang training??? How will your horse ever win if it only know useful things that will make it a good mount? Clearly everyone thats anyone wants a horse that can jump into the back of a moving pickup truck, who cares if they no their leads, right?
Sorry, I couldn't help myslef... seriously, it is so amazing that you get a chance to show what real training should look like! What an amazing opportunity to influence how people think about training horses on a national level, VERY exciting!

Nosnikta said...

I think it's fantastic! I got to meet Mark Lyon and Christian a few months ago and I was really impressed by that horse. It wasn't so much jumping through hoops of fire that impressed me as much as the manners and response of that horse after what.. 100 days? I was very very impressed. And he's a sweet horse too.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I'm so excited for you! Mark told me he was asked to judge the competition this year. You win it THIS year, and you'll be judging it later!

I think it's FABULOUS!

Trainer X said...

LMAO!! I know!!!! I'm super excited, it'll be A LOT of hard work but sooooo worth it... and sadly o, I will not be standing on his back or jumping through fire lmao!!!!! BUT I need to come up with a good gimmick, like, hmmmmmm a GOOD RIDING HORSE LOL!!!

Tricky said...

Congrats all 'round!

Definately keep us up to date with before and after pics, can't wait to see what you make of him/her/it.

Not many good rides out there, so that should be the best gimmick ever!

Long Island Five said...

OMG! How cool is that???

We can't wait for the introduction and updates.

We're all pulling for you.

CCH said...

Awesome. That's some serious recognition. I have to plug the cow-horse ending for stangers. Have you thought about throwing in some serious english? That might really make for an awesome show at the finish.

twhlady said...

Congrats... Can't wait to hear about it. Hope everything goes how you think it will. Keep us updated and please include pics. From scruffy wild horse to polished RIDEABLE mount.

The Crossroads said...

Congrats! That's something I've always wanted to do, unfortunately the property at home is suitable nor is the stable I'm boarded at, so talk about a bummer for me :)

You'll definitely have to keep us updated on you 'stang!

Paigeley said...
