Schaub
purchased
Sir
Dragon
at
the
sale
as
a
three‐year‐old
and
sold
him
in
this
year's
sale.
Sir
Dragon
showed
the
next
day
at
the
Finals
and
was
fourth

overall
in
the
Small
Green
Pony
division.
"I
want
people
to
be
assured
that
I
am
bringing
top‐quality,
hand‐picked
ponies
to
the
sale
for
others
to
purchase
and
go
on
with,"
Schaub
pointed
out.
"I
can

only
show
so
many
ponies
and
give
them
their
best
shot.
This
year,
I
was
faced
with
eight
Small
Green
ponies
to
show
or
sell.
I
sold
six
in
the
sale
and
kept

two.
These
are
ponies
that
I
9ind
through
the
years.
I
like
their
quality,
and
I
break
them
and
get
them
ready
for
others
to
compete
with
and
win.
I
think
the

proof
is
in
the
pudding."

Regarding
this
year's
sale,
Schaub
mentioned,
"The
ponies
all
went
to
great
new
owners
where
I
thought
they
had
a
chance
to
be
successful.
While
prices

were
down
a
bit,
I
felt
that
the
long
term
advantage
of
selling
them
into
good
places
will
bene9it
me
for
years
to
come."

By

Summer
training
is
in
session.
Extravagance
departed
Ashmore
on
July
30
with
his
pal,
Godsend
(horses
generally
travel
better
with

company).
Both
arrived
safely
in
North
Carolina
and
enjoyed
their
overnight
stay
at
the
horse
hotel.
The
boys
had
the
luxury
suite...a

large
grassy
paddock
(just
like
home),
and
bran
mash
topped
with
apples
(what
more
could
they
want).
•
It
is
a
lot
of
work
travelling

with
 our
 equine
 partners...we
 double
 up
 on
 omeprazole,
 then
 we
 soak
 their
 hay,
 reduce
 their
 grain
 and
 add
 mashes
 while
 taking

temperatures
regularly.
During
refueling,
we
add
molasses
to
their
water
and
check
as
the
two
biggest
concerns
when
shipping
long

distances
is
air6low
and
hydration.

After
a
two
day
journey
with
an
overnight
in
North
Carolina,
the
horses
arrived
at
the
O’Connors
happy
and
well
today.
We
did
ground

work
 and
 went
 out
 on
 a
 short
 hack
 around
 the
 beautiful
 property.

wants

We
have
a

7:30am

that

The
second
day
was
all
about
Extravagance!
We
had
an
easy
dressage
school
in
the
morning
and
then
(6inally!)
jumping.
Karen
called

me
“the
magician”
when
it
came
to
jumping.
This
is
quite
a
compliment
coming
from
such
a
achieved
person
such
as
Karen.
•
Karen
is

astounded
about
Extravagance’s
improvement
with
the
jumping
and
I
am
so
proud.
Tomorrow
is
more
dressage.

AGAIN.
Be
6irmer­­I
tend
to
want
a
light,
soft
feel...”this
is
not
a
democracy.
It
is
a
dictatorship”,
says
Karen.
I
am
told
to
be
more

con6ident
and
demanding.
Karen
insists
that
I
know
what
I
am
doing
and
need
to
succeed.

Cross
country
morning
involved
Karen
approving
of
my
galloping
position,
Extravagance’s
adjust
ability,
safety,
and
successfully
negoti­
ating
a
variety
of
cross
country
fences
in
a
small
area...not
unlike
Ashmore.
It
was
refreshing
to
know
that
Karen
does
not
school
over

large
cross
country
fences.
Nothing
was
larger
than
3’3”
(we
compete
at
4’3”).
•
Karen
indicated
that
Pau
4*
was
well
within
our
grasp,

but
risky.
She
cautions
that
it
possess
risks
(of
course
any
4*
involves
risks)!
Should
we
not
compete
we
will
have
a
tough
time
regaining

the
selector’s
attention.
If
we
prove
that
a
4*
is
within
our
capabilities,
we
will
be
a
step
ahead
at
the
onset
of
2010.
Karen
believes
we

could
be
competitive
at
Rolex
2010.
However,
waiting
to
do
the
4*
at
Rolex
puts
a
lot
of
pressure
on
our
Rolex
performance­­should
Rolex

not
happen
we
have
missed
our
chance!
•
Karen
warned
me
that
6inally
the
Irish
have
a
strong
group
of
many
quali6ied
candidates.
I
do

have
experience
at
the
4*
level
in
my
favor.
For
me
this
is
greater
incentive
to
be
better­­6inally
something
I
can
focus
on,
thanks
to
the

great
support
from
several
persons.

Sadly
we
depart
today
but
we
do
intend
to
return!
Today
we
did
a
little
cross
country...
Extravagance
was
good
but
he
is
so
used
to
taking

care
of
things
for
himself
(not
a
bad
trait),
and
Karen
insisted
that
he
be
more
attentive
to
me.
We
jumped
nothing
larger
than
prelimi­
nary,
 but
 some
 technical
 questions.
 •
 Show
 jumping
 with
 Extravagance
 was
 somewhat
 interesting.
 Karen,
 knowing
 his
 history
 and

having
witnessed
some
impressive
rounds
last
season,
called
me
the
jumping
“magician”.
Of
course
we
worked
on
helping
Extravagance

understand
that
he
needs
to
stay
round
to
every
fence­­cetrainly
he
performed
better
when
round­it
needs
to
become
his
normal
way
of

going.
•
We
are
staying
over
night
at
a
horse
hotel
in
North
Carolina
so
the
horses
have
an
easier
trip
and
then
an
eight
hour
journey

back
to
Ashmore.
We
return
to
Ashmore
tomorrow
and
off
to
a
dressage
show
on
Saturday.
