Santa Barbara Stock 41 by Nyaorestock Santa Barbara Stock 41 by Nyaorestock

NOTE! If you want a larger pixel size version of these pictures, or ones that aren't sharpened, just ask! The original versions of these pictures are all at 2500+ pixels, and while I refuse to POST those sized pictures here I am not against sending a larger sized version to you if you want them.

However, please note that the full size versions will only be sent if you buy the right to use them. Otherwise I'll probably just send you something 500 pixels larger. (I can't do it with this stock, sadly, as it literally peaks at 2560 pixels, but if you want I'd be willing to go as high as 2400.)

Taken at: The Santa Barbara Arabian/Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabian horse show in CA. Summer 2007.

Read the rules in my journal if you wish to use this image. If you understand them and still wish to use this then please leave me a note/comment/etc so that I can know.

Now larger. Enjoy.
I'm still in awe of the fact that this photo turned out so well.. xD Especially since it was from my first batch of photos that weren't exactly all up to par..

It kinda makes me miss being able to ride saddleseat/english though.... ;__; (I stopped riding that discipline when Echelon, my horse, could no longer physically perform it. He can still be ridden, don't get me wrong, but he can't consistently perform the high-stepping action that is required of a saddleseat/english horse without hurting himself.)

I honestly have no idea who this horse is... ^^; I only managed to snag this shot of them and never got a chance to see their competition number. Sorry. =(

Agreed. :D I really wish I found out what this horse's name was while I was still at the show.

Oh what a beautiful gait that Arab's got. Smooth trot. Nice shot.

I know how you feel. I have a Morgan mare that used to do all that beautiful stuff (she was a Saddleseat and sucessful Hunt Seat show mare) until she broke her coffin bone a long time ago in a Hunt Seat accident... long before I got her. I would have loved to show her but she's too lame for riding now.
But I have a younger Morgan gelding that picks his feet up high, pretty, and smooth all naturally. I'd love to put him in a Saddleseat show.

I'm sorry that that happened. *winces* =( What happened to my horse isn't as severe as what happened in your case thankfully. His hocks just couldn't keep up with the strain, which is partially my fault because I wasn't physically able to push him into the leads properly back then, and it would have been harmful to his overall health if we kept on practicing that discipline on him.
That's great about your gelding though. =) How old is he?
KashiPup Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2007
Ah I see.
Tucker's two, going on three in November. My trainer's training him thoroughly this winter so he's safe to ride next spring. Maybe if my parents will let me I could ask the trainer to get him ready for Saddleseat.... walk, trot, canter is simple enough... no? (Or is saddleseat more than what I think it is?)
Nyaorestock Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Pretty much. If your horse has the movement needed to perform the discipline then it should be a fairly simple process to train him. I'm not very knowledgable about Morgans', but I don't think you'll have to worry about taking the time to teach your horse how to rack or anything beyond the basic gates. =)
