2010 update: CONGRATULATIONS TO HILARY ON HER PURCHASE OF MINUET – IT IS SO WONDERFUL TO KNOW SHE HAS GONE TO THE BEST HOME POSSIBLE!
2008 video: This is Minuet, a 14.1 hand high Arabian pony. Here, I’m just finishing her basic training. This was only her second time trying ANY tempi changes – and both times she performed perfect fours, threes, twos, then a handful of beautiful one-tempis! Not originally intended, but she was having so much fun, we stayed in the moment. Mini loves learning, and is very focused; here I’d trained her only a total of 5 months since breaking her – only five months total under saddle! A remarkable young horse. I started her at four, but afterward only had time to put in a few sporadic months here and there; before we knew it we were headed toward her sixth birthday. Clearly we have not begun any collected work at this early stage of her training (despite playing with the upper level movements). Instead, keeping her very forward, energetic, and relaxed, as all green horses should be IMHO. What a fun, enthusiastic pony! UPDATE for 2009: MINUET HAS JUST COMPETED IN HER FIRST DRESSAGE SHOW…AND SHE DEBUTED AT PRIX ST. GEORGES!!! BE SURE TO CHECK OUT HER 2009 VIDEO, TAKEN A YEAR AFTER THIS ONE! -Catherine Gallegos
