Sleipnir Onstar at The Grand National Morgan Horse Show

Sleipnir Onstar and Travis Olinger in Roadster to Bike

I have posted news about Onstar earlier.  Here are two pictures of her at the 2011 Grand National Morgan Horse Show in Oklahoma City.  Both photos are by Howard Schatzberg.

 In Elizabeth’s gallery for our mares that are for sale, there are other pictures that Elizabeth and Travis’ wife, Audra, have taken of Onstar being driven. There’s even a picture of me driving her.  I’ll have Elizabeth comment with a direct link to Onstar’s “gallery”.  But you can go to www.ImagesnMemories.com >> “Galleries” >> Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm – Public Gallery >> Mares For Sale >> and choose Sleipnir Onstar’s Gallery.  There are galleries for most all of our “For Sale” Horses as well as “historic” photos.  I recently found some other “historic” photos, and we will be scanning and adding them soon.

Onstar traveled to and from OKC and did well in her stall, grooming stall, ready ring and class.  This was only her second time in a ring with traffic, and she handled all the lights and noise of the Coliseum for the Roadster class like a trooper.  She is kid kissable, and like all our horses, stands well for the farrier, veterinarian, etc; and is current on all vaccinations, wormings, and such.

Sleipnir Explorer and Amber McGee at the 2011 Grand National Morgan Horse Show

Amber and Explorer - 2011 Liberty Classic

Amber and Explorer pinned in their first two classes here at the Nationals, and he has been garnering fans. 

We are very proud of Amber’s accomplishments. With Sue (and Chris) Nerland’s supervision she has improved as a rider and changed Explorer (and herself) from Western tack to Hunt Seat tack, and they are beginning to work on Saddle Seat together.  We believe in horses learning many styles of equipment.

When we purchased our first horse, UC Spicy Lass (UC Marquis x UC Taffy) our girls were 10, 7, and 6 years old.  Now, our grandchildren are 18, 17, 16 and 10.

When we met Amber and Kimberly, Amber thought horses were icky.  Now, she feeds in all kinds of weather (even in gorgeous Tennessee) and has shown often in the rain.

Sleipnir Explorer is one of B-L Rhinestone Kid’s (Waseeka’s Showtime x B-L Brown Lace) last foals. We had Rhinestone since he was a weanling (1980-2009) and he never disappointed us in the quality of his foals.  They all are athletic, lovely/handsome, VERY people friendly horses, that have pleasant ways of going and can move along for miles/hours.

Explorer is out of May’s Sweetie (Cap’s Nugget x Eck’s Twiggy), Noel Jones’ special driving mare. Sweetie is as good as her name says…wonderful personality. She is one of the Members of Merrill May’s breeding farm in Ohio (1984-retired now).  She has presented us with some wonderful foals; and we continue having two of her daughters on breeding lease (NEJ Golddust Alice and NEJ Golddust Emma) (available).

From the very beginning, when we purchased Spicy, we became a family friendly morgan horse breeding farm.  It is wonderful that the third generation is continuing the tradition. We had stopped showing for many years.  Now, with Amber, we are back. Watching her bring Sleipnir Explorer from the farm in Tennessee to OKC has been an honor and a privilege.  We are so very proud of both of them and their accomplishments and grateful to all those who aided them along the way.

Sleipnir Onstar – 2003 Black Morgan Mare – Harness and Saddle – On the Way to the Grand National

Sleipnir Onstar, our 2003, BLACK driving and saddle mare is on her way to the Morgan Horse 2011 Grand National Horse Show, to be shown in Roadster To Bike.

S. Onstar, is a very versatile Morgan Mare with impeccable breeding that can complement any breeding program.
While she follows Travis Olinger, her trainer, around like a puppy, she could easily gear up or down and could be a harness mare in any of the Divisions: Park Harness, Pleasure Driving or Roadster to Bike. She is being shown in the Roadster-to-Bike class. Dr. John has always wanted a Roadster to Bike contender, and S. Onstar definitely can show her stuff. She could hold her own with some of the best in morgan history.
Onstar commenced her career at home being a lesson horse for our young amateur grandchildren. She can vary her tempo and speed for her rider. She has been ridden in Hunt Seat, Saddle Seat, and Western tack. She is a prime example of our breeding and training motto: Family Show Horses : Showy Family Horses
She is one of B-L Rhinestone Kid’s (Waseeka’s Showtime x B-L Brown Lace, by UVM Flash) only producing-aged daughters available. Her dam, NEJ Golddust Louise, (Golddust Miner M C x Alaba Dolly – Trophy and Beamington) has been sold to be a parade horse and broodmare. Since Rhinestone is deceased and Louise has been sold, S. Onstar is a unique cross, never to be repeated.

She is trained, and will be shown by Travis Olinger, who has been a horseman since his early youth. He is calm, quiet, and methodical in his training methods; and enjoys working with amateur owners.  His well-known family specializes in Roadster Harness  Hackney ponies and Saddlebreds in Harness, as might be expected in Eastern Tennessee. But he enjoys his time with our sensible, intelligent, and fancy Morgan Horses. Look for pictures of his four year old daughter driving Sleipnir Fieldstone, (B-L Rhinestone Kid x NEJ Golddust Emma). 

Wish us well and look for new photos of her in her www.ImagesnMemories.com  Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm public gallery, mares for sale gallery, SOON.

Sleipnir Explorer is at the 2011 Grand National Morgan Horse Show:

Our granddaughter, Amber McGee, and our 2005 Bay gelding, Sleipnir Explorer (B-L Rhinestone Kid x May’s Sweetie) have made their way to Oklahoma City, OK for the Morgan Horse Grand National Horse Show.

They have been training with Sue (and Chris) Nerland, of Lancer Stables/R’surene Morgans, and have had a solid show season this year, their second year of Class A rated morgan horse shows. Sue is imparting her wealth of knowledge and experience to Amber. This year they have shown at the Dixie Cup, Southern States Regional, Kentucky Bluegrass Classic, and the Liberty United Classic Horse Shows.

Amber has been S. Explorer’s trainer from the beginning. She has had professional coaching from several well known morgan horse people; but she has done virtually all the hands on work herself.

Explorer is following in the fine tradition of people friendly, athletic, intelligent “Family Show Horses: Showy Family Horses” that has been our breeding philosophy since the birth of our first two family show horse geldings, Sleipnir Valhalla (UVM Viking x UC Spicy Lass) and Sleipnir Selebrity (Donnybrook Celebrity x UC Spicy Lass) in the 1980’s.

Amber and Explorer are entered in several classes at the Grand National. Elizabeth or I will attach a list of their classes to the comments on the blog. It is possible to watch the entire GN in real time online. Amber has been working Explorer Hunt Seat, but he would do equally well at Saddle Seat or Dressage. He also has worn Western tack.

Sleipnir Explorer is just one of several of our terrific geldings. We also have Sleipnir Celestial Array (Bay), Sleipnir Fieldstone (Bay), Sleipnir Double Feature (Chestnut), and Sleipnir Resonance (Chestnut) available, as well as some very nice Black geldings available from friends of ours. All are very people friendly, athletic, intelligent, with good conformation and no vices. All are offered for sale. Most all of our horses would be equally at home in a national caliber show ring or a family field. Almost all prefer carrots to apples.

Update to Liberty United Horse Show

Hello,

The weather is beautiful and the Horse Show is continuing today at the Tri-County Fairgrounds/Arena in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Off the first Cleveland Exit heading North from Chattanooga, on I-75. Off the third Cleveland Exit heading South from Knoxville or Athens, on I-75.

There is no charge for visitors to the show.

Four of our Morgan Horses will be shown today.  Sleipnir Onstar, our gorgeous BLACK, driving mare, currently showing Roadster-to-Bike, but she could go up or down.  She follows her trainer like a puppy.  Our three mature geldings will all be at the show: Sleipnir Celestial Array, a handsome Bay that rides and drives; Sleipnir Explorer, a friendly Bay that has been Junior Exhibitor Hunt Seat Equitated; and Sleipnir Fieldstone, another friendly handsome Bay, that rides and drives.  He has been worked casually laid-back, family-friendly, and has been driven by a four-year-old girl! He can go further up in speed and action, or become an excellent carriage driving horse.

All our horses have a great deal of on-the-ground training time. The driving horses have mostly been started by a carriage driving/CDE enthusiast, who’s family has been breeding morgans for multiple generations.  Some have been further worked by a young man who is also from a multi-generation driving enthusiasts family, but with a decided showhorse orientation.  The horses that have been worked in equitation are also under the care of a multi-generation morgan horse family, and an equitation instructor.  They all stand for the veterinarian and farrier, and are current on their vaccinations and wormings.

There are horses at the show of other breeding also.  Arabians, Friesians, Hackney/Harness ponies, And other breeds.

Please see the website for Liberty at: www.LibertyUnitedHorseShow.yolasite.com

Good Wishes to all the exhibitors.
