I am so pleased with Solo! We did a little schooling show at the barn last weekend. His 15-year-old junior rider, Elizabeth Manza, rode him in Training Level Test 1 and earned a 70.8% to win her class, and I won my Training Level Test 3 with 74%. Given that I've basically been Solo's trainer for most of the past two years, I felt good about it. It also makes me feel good that I can send my stallion out with a teenager and he will be an angel! Here they are together:

My Avatar stallion is also currently teaching a youngster to ride (she just turned 20), and it is awesome having a horse who is honest and
take care of a rider.

Its great you get him out there and show the public how wonderful our Arabian stallions can be!!

Thank you!! This is the first time I've actually gotten to show him, and actually the first time I've shown in about 2.5 years...so it was a pretty big deal for me, even though it was a small show.

I totally understand! Just took one of the foals out to a large Open show (Dressage at Lexington) and Robert & I showed the mare & foal ourselves. Funny how it worked when we let the professional handlers run them in the 2012 Filly class Maggie was rotten. Then with us she was absolutely wonderful!. They know who their person(s) is!! So happy for you that you got to show AND do well!!! It is a blast isn't it!! Sure we'll be hearing of even more adventures of your two together soon ;)

Thank you, Denise...I'm sure you will. Things are starting to look just a tiny bit brighter for us financially, so I can actually look at doing a little showing.
