A hot and eventful summer 2013
Related Searches. But this summer it was different. With Julia Schaefer, Julia Heller, Pia Hottenbacher all from Germany and Manuela Perret from Switzerland, four trainees visited the Miller-Ranch during the hot summer months with the effect, that this year the main horse training was done at night. Julia Heller only had time for 3 months at the ranch.
Like Pia, she already had some years of riding experience; but at the Miller-Ranch she discovered that much of what she had learned before could not be used. She wanted to learn more about the horse training and especially more of the Missouri Fox Trotter. The first opportunity for Rita and Andrew to try Smokey Joe was in October- their decision was done at once.
Julia Schaeffer is an experienced and very successful young rider.
Both horses were bought by her parents for her from the Miller-Ranch. She decided to start in the Versatility and in the Performance classes with the professionals. But sad things happen with living creatures ,Legend draw a crack at his right front foot, his training was finished, and it was uncertain, whether he could perform again during the tournament. With a special shoe we tried to get him a light training three weeks before the tournament. Julia showed him in Ava and qualified also for the final, but she could not start in the final.
Legend, a gaited machine with unbeatable rhythm otherwise, was not ready to get him consistent, he was not ready for this class of top horses. Julia invested much of her time and she had built an excellent relation with this sensitive mare. In both videos, made during her training, one can see both in top condition.

Unfortunately at that special day, during that special hour, when it was important, the nerves of our young 19 years old lady did not cooperate. Her experience as tournament rider in Europe helped her, to come to the right decision in this situation. Although the expectations in the Performance Class ended with a disappointment, the results in the Versatility Class showed much greater success.
