In April I purchased two young horse from a field in Tennesse.  I love working with young animals.  For years my family bred a few warmbloods each year and  showed them at IHF.  My mom stopped breeding horses a few years ago to spend more time with me.  When I was a kid taggin along to these competitions, I always dreamed of riding at the IHF one day.  I was also looking to try out my training progression for Taiji Horsemanship on two young horses.  I was so proud of my babies at IHF.  I started them , prepped them, prepared them, turned them out and rode them in the 2010 competition.  My two year old was the Reserve Champion 2 year old under saddle and my three year was Reserve Champion Warrenton Horse Show three year old and finished well in all three IHF classes with his high placing being 2nd place in the 3 year old IHF hack and a 4th and 5 th over fences.  I was thrilled with their performances.  It was pretty cool jumping around on two babies that I trained.  I could not have been prouder of them!  Lizzy
