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.

Sleipnir Onstar and Travis Olinger - October 2011 Grand National

 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 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.

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.

Driving Horses at Sleipnir Morgan Horse Farm (SMHF), Delano, Tennessee

I have had people talking to me about driving horses recently. Not all Morgans know how to drive. But many start their working career by learning to drive. Here is a brief discussion of horses on the farm, many of which are for sale and know how to be driven.
Sleipnir Constellation (Connie) 1983 and Coeur d’Alene (Alene) 1988 both know well how to be driven. Connie was a well-known show horse in New England in the 1980’s. Alene is the dam of two of our stallions and Connie is the dam of another. They are both dams of members of our next generation broodmare band as well. They are retired broodmares and happily munch grass together in a nice paddock. They both love carrots. May’s Sweetie (1984) was the main driving horse for a prominent, knowledgeable carriage driver. She is blind in one eye from an old injury, and is also a retired broodmare here on our farm. We have a few of her very nice “Produce” for sale for us and for her owner. Playday Rebecca (Becca) 1990 and NEJ Golddust Emma (a “Sweetie” daughter) (1995) are broodmares only, and are hopefully in foal. NEJ Golddust Alice (also a “Sweetie” daughter) (1993) has never been hooked, but she has been ground-driven with untrained horses in pairs, probably the only one doing so on the farm…with the kids (Amber for sure). Alice and Emma are both available, and Sweetie could be persuaded to accompany either or both of her daughters as a companion horse to a new home.

Sleipnir Southern Cross (Blaze) 1998 and Sleipnir Spice on Top (Topsie) 1999 both know how to be driven. They have both been driven by several different drivers. Neither one are currently offered for sale as they are planned replacement pedigrees for the broodmare band. Cece (Triagn Smooth Sailing) our gorgeous Palomino mare is intended to be a pleasure, and/or carriage, driving mare, prior to our breeding her to Sleipnir Echo’s Finale. S. Sophisticated Lady (Sophie) 2001 hasn’t been hooked; and is intended to join S. Southern Cross, S. Spice on Top, S. Andromeda, and Triagn Smooth Sailing as the next-generation broodmare band.
Sleipnir Celestial Array (Array) 2002 and Sleipnir Fieldstone (Fieldstone) 2006. Array and Fieldstone, both bay geldings, were both started by an experienced morgan horse driver. Array is at the Nerlands being used as Chris’ Hunt Seat saddle horse and Fieldstone is going to Travis Olinger to get tuned up for The Liberty United Classic Horse Show. Both are professional quality, amateur-safe, and are for sale and available.

R’surene Reparte (1995) knows how to be driven, and has been shown in Pleasure Driving by Chris. Reparte is available for sale by the Nerlands. He can be seen here at our farm. NEJ Golddust Jaxx (1993) and NEJ Golddust Wilbur (1994) have had basic training for driving and saddle work. They are BIG, TALL, SOLID BLACK horses bred to be part of a four-in-hand for a well-known carriage driving enthusiast. Others of their siblings may also be available. Alice and Emma are here on our farm; these guys are nearby.

All four current stallions: S. Carbon Copy (2000) S. Sequoyah (2003) S. Echo’s Finale (2004) and S. Zenith (2004) have had ground-driving experience, but none have been hooked. Three of them are For Sale and would make excellent Class A Pleasure Driving stallions (or geldings). All are pleasant to work with, and all are also available At Stud. We only breed a couple horses a year, and we don’t need four stallions.
Sleipnir Onstar, (2003 )our Black mare, of course, drives. Trained for western saddle, and used with Hunt Tack, and probably Saddle Seat Tack, Onstar’s early career, believe it or not, was as a lesson horse for our YOUNG beginner grandchildren. She has been in training with Travis Olinger for driving and she has made her Morgan Horse Class A show ring debut this year in Roadster to Bike! Onstar has a couple more Class A Morgan Horse Shows this year with Travis. Onstar can move up or down the class lists and has been a well-kept secret in Morgandom. Many people who watched her debut at the Bluegrass Morgan in Kentucky against well-known former Park Horses, wondered who she was. People won’t be wondering much longer. Onstar follows Travis like a puppy back to the barn, stands quiet to be tacked up, is great for the farrier and veterinarian, and has the pedigree and conformation to benefit ANY Morgan breeding program. She is one of the few remaining B-L Rhinestone Kid producing daughters.
Sleipnir Onstar exemplifies our motto: Family Show Horses: Showy Family Horses.

All four of our young junior horses can be ground-driven and are For Sale. They are like all our horses, beautiful, talented, great pedigrees, superior conformation, and willing personalities. S. Hiwassee and S. Echo’s Celebrity (“Bree”) (2009) have started their ground training to drive and can progress to the hooking stage. S. Double Feature (“DF”) and S. Resonance (“Res”) 2010 probably ought to wait until late winter to hook. They might make a great tall chestnut driving pair with their similar markings. However, each could have a fine show or family career on their own.
I am currently writing new updates for the individual pages for each of the “For Sale” horses. Pictures of all of the For Sale Horses can be seen by clicking on their individual photos from the home page OR
By going to www.ImagesnMemories.com then Galleries, then SMHF – Public Galleries, then Stallions, Mares or Geldings For Sale and each individual horse has a few pages of pictures.

We are happy to talk pedigrees, talents, etc. Feel free to email, or call to discuss any of the horses. If we do not have something to suit you, we’ll know other Morgan Horse people that might. Amber (McGee) our oldest grand-daughter is showing the Class A shows down south, in training with Sue Nerland (& Chris)  and the youngest, grand-daughter, Kaya Bayard, is their groom. So, you may even find us on the rail. Last year was the first time since 1988, with Beth, Caitrin, and Britta, (and John!)
Also, Elizabeth (McGee), our oldest daughter, is the Show Manager for the Liberty United Classic Horse Show in Cleveland, TN, 37325, September 24 & 25 (Saturday and Sunday). It is going to be a major show for Morgans, and other breeds. This is the first year that it is rated THREE STARS AMHA. Plan on seeing us all there! http://LibertyUnitedHorseShow.yolasite.com and come for a visit to the farm, we are just a few minutes north of the show ground.
