Hey all, a x-post between [community profile] dressage and [community profile] horses .

I'm a recent ljimigrant (clearly the technical term), and so I'm looking to make DW my official staple stop. I don't know how many people are from or have ever been on LJ, but their equestrian community is huge and very active. Honestly it's the main thing that keeps me checking LJ still. So, I'm hoping there will be interest in making DW's horse communities more active, and eventually maybe even grow into a comparable comm.

A bit about myself/horse, as that's always nice to have to boost participation...
I'm 23, been riding since I was 12. I own an 11-year old 18.1-hand Hanoverian/Thoroughbred gelding names Itolocus ("Toler"). We mostly do dressage these days, but some jumping as well. I dream of doing a little eventing with him, but we had a jumping accident two years ago during a lesson, so our jumping is very slow at getting back to where we were. I used to compete at local circuits in both dressage and jumper division, but don't have the money to right now. We've shown to second level, and, when we're not injured (oi), we're schooling third level. It comes and goes though, as I feel like every year we have a setback and need to retrain quite a bit.

Hi all,

I'm sorry I haven't been around. If it makes anyone feel any better, I have successfully managed to neglect ALL of my communities, not just this one. LOL

Meanwhile though, don't let that stop you from posting. Also tell all of your horse loving friends to come join as well.

I have a young haflinger pony, who is far too smart and a very curious little girl. To work with this combination, I've started trying to teach her games.

This got me to thinking, we all like to play games, and it can be great fun to play games with your horse! Either on the ground or mounted games with others, you can learn a lot or just have fun.

What games do you like to play? Do you have little routines or games that you and your horse like to do?

I love "broom polo", though my pony is too green for such a game, and my horse is much to large. And I'd like to learn Ring Jousting at some point. Meanwhile, I think my pony and I might learn our own version of soccer. :)

I'll be getting around to customizing this community shortly. In the meantime, feel free to join and post as you please!
