Just found another couple of pictures from our Symphony of Horses performance earlier this month. Here, Dusty and I are having some fun between our adventures as Indiana Jones...

This is my friend, Tracy Porter, and her horse Caz. Tracy is a trainer/clinician from Wisconsin and is spending some time with us developing a new specialty act. Check out Tracy's website:
She has a beautiful training facility in Wisconsin - I bet she doesn't miss the weather right now...

Here's a newspaper clipping from our performance at Symphony of Horses Sunday night. That's us in the bottom picture playing "Indiana Jones" in our new movie-themed act. Our horses were great, as usual, and the audience really got into the act with us. We'll have more pics up soon -
We had a great time at the Symphony of Horses performance Sunday evening. It was held at the University of Florida's O'Connell Center and there were thousands in attendance. Here's a pic of Carson Kressley holding my promo "bottle" of Mane N Tail Detangler at a pre-performance party. I'll have more pics up soon!

I found this picture taken during a photo shoot a couple of years ago at the Kentucky Horse Park. I'm thinking about putting it on the back of my trailer with a "Happy Trials" byline...Roy Rogers was always one of my heroes...

We're really looking forward to our December 10th performance at Symphony of Horses. We've choreographed a great movie theme - Indiana Jones - in which we'll roman ride with fire stunts, perform some intricate whip cracking in a great fight sequence, cavalry-style trick shooting, trick horses and fire jumping! This event benefits therapeutic riding and features other equine performers and celebrities such as Pat Parelli, Karson Cressley, the Arabian Nights Black Stallion and more, performing at the University of Florida's O'Connell Center in Gainesville FL! We'll post pics from the event as soon as possible.

These blogs are a great place to post photos. I dug this one up of me during a slick-saddle trick riding exhibition last year. Dig those "TennyLama" cowboy tennis shoes...
Now, that's what I call a "bun warmer"...Yes, that's a real flame passing under me as I'm roman riding the boys at a PRCA rodeo in KY earlier this season. A good friend of mine recently sent this photo to me, reminding me of some great times I had performing at the Kentucky Horse Park (www.kyhorsepark.com). We hope to be back in '07 and have lots of great stuff planned for our "Best of the West" fan base in Lexington.

Here's another interesting pic of Spanky we took one day when I was practicing some mounted trick shooting - yes, I'm riding backwards...I never did like to do it the simple way...If you look closely, you'll see the smoke streaks from the embers of the blank load we use to shoot balloons on the run. Same blanks used in Hollywood movies and the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association. Spanky has taken me to the CMSA World Championships twice.
I found this great picture of Spanky that was taken at the Can-Am Equine Emporium in Ontario in March of '05. We were conducting a trick horse training clinic and specialty act for the evening portion of the horse fair there.
Spanky is a 10-year-old quarter horse who is also a roman riding horse, fire jumper, and a great platform for trick roping, whip cracking and mounted shooting. I'll post more neat pics of him and our other horses soon - stay tuned...
Here's a pic from a recent appearance at a TSC store in Ocala FL. We were there on behalf of one of our great sponsors - Mane N Tail products. TSC carries Mane N Tail (www.manentail.com) products and is one of my favorite stores. Look for us to make more promotional appearances on behalf of Mane N Tail in the very near future. Who knows...we might just be coming to your local TSC with our horses!
Until next time,
