I drove S. Onstar for the very first time

Two more photos have been added to S. Onstar’s photo gallery.  They can be viewed through clicking on her photo at the For Sale “Home” page…or going to her Gallery in the www.ImagesnMemories.com site.  SMHF public gallery>> mares>>S. Onstar.

The photos are of my first time driving her EVER.  Only Travis has driven her before this. The picture of Travis running alongside us is because I had also NEVER driven in his ring before. 

The other picture is of us going down the rail. She floats at the trot and she goes FAST!  Travis said that I was holding her back, and she can actually go ALOT FASTER…it was fast enough for me!!

These two photos of her are still without shoes. No shoes ever.  No training aids ever.

Rhinestone could trot for miles…and Louise never tired; and both of them were quite speedy. But I think S. Onstar took the best from both parents.

John got to drive her too. But Elizabeth was having camera issues.  Hopefully, we’ll get some photos of John driving her soon.  And more photos of Travis too.

Onstar follows Travis around like a puppy.  The absolute best thing about her training with him, is that he has taught her to stop and stand still. She just floats along when she is trotting, and she is all speed when he asks her to be. However, when he asks her to stop, she does. And just stands in place. 

We are thinking that she may be our Roadster to Bike horse.  She doesn’t really want to flat foot walk.  You know how the Roadsters, and frankly some of the Pleasure Driving horses, won’t stand in the line-up.  Not this young lady.  Roadster to Bike horses cannot have a header in the ring. S. Onstar just stands in place for Travis, John or I. That’s off to a really good start.

In the pictures, you’ll see how nicely she stands in the cross-ties for clipping, and kid kisses too.
