PostSubject: Blue Ribbon Safari Ltd. Clydesdale   Sun Oct 30, 2011 12:54 am

One of my model horse hobby friends told me to be on the lookout for a package and it arrived today! She sent me this LOVELY Safari Clydesdale for my birthday! (My birthday is not until first of the week, but I had to opened it anyway!)
I have NEVER seen a Safari animal this big! He is double the size of a regular Safari/Schleich. Kind of like a classic scale Breyer Horse. I was very surprised and oh my goodness is he beautiful! :)

His name is Count Chocula in honor of Halloween. :)

Thank you friends! And thank you Robert, for showing the picture! :)

Izzy and I are on our way to a hunter pace this morning. I said I was not going to go, because little Fjords have a hard time keeping up with big Thoroughbreds, but here I am going.

Wish us luck! Very Happy

I wish you and the wonderful Izzy lots of luck ! sunny flower sunny
Of course you will do well, - she is a great horse cheers
Perhaps she can`t run as fast as the thoroughbreds, but participating is fun anyway, i hope...and perhaps there are other horses more like Izzy, too ?

Please let us know how it goes bounce bounce

He (she?) is gorgeous! I have this horse on my wishlist, as well as two or three other from Blue Ribbon series. My big Friesian needs company! Laughing
At first I was also shocked how big those horses are, but now I'm used to this size :)

The hunter pace was a bit of a bust. I had a bit of a hesitation to ride with the folks I rode with and I should have trusted my gut. The footing was bad and yet they chose to go at full cry speed pretty much the whole ride.
Izzy was determined to keep up with them and I had a horrible time trying to steady her back.
Not to mention I almost fell off THREE times due to bucking and stumbling. So not worth it, and I will NEVER put my pony through anything like that again. Razz

No results yet, but for what we went through I BETTER get a ribbon. Wink

Here are a couple pictures from early in the ride. My position is horrible because I'd already settled into defense mode. lol.
