New faces

Christmas came early, I got new ponies to play with the other week (been belated on introducing them).

Wylie Court Jester (Wicked Court Jester) and Mr. Merlot are two ponies that I've been watching for years. They are fantastically bred ponies that have pretty much made waves on the east coast. They are every dressage rider's dream ponies and would easily hold their own in Europe. I envied them and Cory Gregory for years. Never in a million years would expect to get a phone call asking if I wanted to take up the reins.

But, life, as with ponies occasionally takes a turn.After a flurry of conversations with Cory, the boys came down to be legged up for the spring.

Both boys settled in without a hassle, and have been getting back to work for the past two weeks. While we're still on our honeymoon period, they are showing very well. They are exceptionally fun and challenging in their own ways. They are two very distinct rides and I can't wait to really dig in.

The best part is they will be shipping in to Florida with Sinari.

Wow - that is great news! (I read your blog, just don't comment often!)

The chestnut is really stunning. Keep us posted on their progress, maybe with pics or video (hint, hint!)

CONGRATS! They are both great looking ponies.
I have actually heard a lot about Wylie Court Jester and the whole Court Jester name :)

Congratulations, Kelly! That is such exciting news! I'm going to be following your blog so closely while you're in Florida, take lots of pictures and update us freezing northerners often!
