Horse and Driver Magazine

The premier issue of Horse and Driver magazine is online.

There are lots of interesting articles, and useful ads and announcements for various parts of the driving community.

Even if you have never driven, you’ll find articles of general interest inside.

And if you are a driver, carriage or otherwise, you’ll also find plenty of interest.

http://issuu.com/horseanddriver/docs/fall2013_final

We have an ad in the issue. As you’ll see from the photos, we have horses who will be great friends for all sorts of driving experiences.

The editor, and her advisors, Denice Barton, has worked very hard to produce this new magazine as a resource for people who love horses, and are interested in driving them in some manner. Let her know what you think…she has surveys and her direct email for suggestions.

Petition regarding showing in the road horse division at various horse shows.

Lana Gilpin at lvgstables@me.com is circulating a petition regarding showing road horses.  The petition is copied below, under our conversation.

I wrote to her because we are unable to show our wonderful morgan mare, Sleipnir Onstar, at shows like the Dixie Cup, which has dedicated classes for Saddlebreds, Morgans, and Hackneys.  There are no Standardbreds shown there.  Even if there were, we were looking for a Morgans only class.

Under previous rules, this would not have been a problem.  Under the current changed rules, it was not possible to show her there.

Please read our conversation and her petition.  If you have any questions you can email her or call.  Please also contact her to support the petition. All it does is go back to the old rules, and let more nice horses be shown in road classes.  Whether you are new to the horse show world, or an old-timer, the purpose of this petition allows for more nice classes for more nice horses…

Thank you for taking the time to read this; and your support.

Our conversation:

Hi Lana,

… Correct me if I am wrong.

We have a Morgan that we have shown roadster-to-bike, we could not show her at a Morgan-Saddlebred-Hackney show…
We could not even have a Morgan roadster to bike class included in the show…not allowed by the current rules.
All classes were breed specific…so, not like they were competing in an open show. The way I read your petition, it would address this issue.

If I am correct, we support the petition, so will our trainer and friends.

Lana’s reply:
Yes Georgia this would address your issue as well. Thank you for your support.

My reply:
Then absolutely include us.
And I’ll send it on to our trainer who predominantly does hackneys.

Please contact Lana to be included on the petition. Or if you have any questions.

Georgia’s mini-Essay for Horse & Driver Directory – 2013

We are proud to be a long-time Morgan Horse Family; Breeding and Showing Morgan Horses since 1979. We are especially interested in the preservation, promotion, and sharing of Morgan Horse pedigrees, in a modern horse.

This is a family operation with three generations feeding, training, and maintaining the herd. Good Manners are every bit as important to us as correct conformation and the Morgan’s intrinsic beauty and terrific personality.

We have all ages. Suitable for various disciplines. Classic Morgan bloodlines and temperament. Blacks, Seal Browns, Dark Chestnuts, Bays, & a palomino. National caliber horses for the show ring, CDE, trail, or backyard.

Our horses are groomed near geese, ducks, chickens, guinea hens, cats & dogs.
Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm is located in East Tennessee at the foot of the Smoky Mountains, off Interstate 75, between Chattanooga and Knoxville.

Our motto and mission – Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses.

In harness in Eastern Tennessee

John and I have always had an interest in Carriage Driving.

Recently, we’ve been auditing some clinics; and been working with some of our Morgans focusing on aspects of carriage driving.
We haven’t abandoned our family’s return to the all-Morgan shows, just adding another dimension.

Over the years, John had two wishes/goals for our Morgans:

(1) to have a Morgan Roadster -to- Bike…Sleipnir Onstar, our 2003 Black Roadster-to-Bike trained Morgan mare was Grand National Top Ten last year. Due to John’s injury and extensive recovery period, and all the tornado damage, we didn’t show her (or anyone) this year – professional or amateur.
(2) to do combined driving events (CDEs). We are working towards that goal now.

Weather isn’t co-operating for our Mondays with Travis here. Second rainy Monday in a row. But John got Wednesday at Travis’ with Sleipnir Sequoyah accomplished last week.

We have four well-trained harness horses available; several with extensive ground driving experience; and a half-dozen youngsters, four of which can begin harness training. We sell our best. Our mission is to share “Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses,”  and to provide historic pedigrees as up close as possible in a modern horse, that still looks like a Morgan.

Several others of our Morgans are trained to harness.  They are not on the sales list, and need a refresher; we intend to drive them more often also.
Due to his extended time unable to work, and our reduced mobility, we are willing to accept reasonable offers on about 12 of our 21 Morgan Horses; plus, we have three for sale as agents for other owners.  A few of our horses are here for the duration.

Our website is undergoing updating of photos etc…but my blog is up to date re what’s going on at the farm, and other places.

In the meantime, we are enjoying the Autumn with the Herd; and working more and more in harness.
Stay tuned for our weekly adventures bringing along some of the horses driving around the farm.
If you are in East Tennessee, and enjoy horses in harness, in any manner, let us know…they don’t have to be Morgans !!!
There is an active carriage driving group in Middle TN…where we are making friends…and learning ALOT. Perhaps we can do some fun things here in East Tennessee too.
