Java Joe and My Favorite Hat By Kristin Stein Meers

A

s trainers we often rely on our clients to help provide us with horses to train and compete. Let’s face it; we are not trainers/instructors in this highprofile elitist sport to make a fortune. Although, it would be nice, wouldn’t it? We are in this profession for the love of the horse, the partnership between rider and horse, and for the journey of perfection that we all strive for in the sandbox.

some seasoned show miles put on him while he was still young and silly. This was a fantastic opportunity to ride a special kind of horse and grow in my relationship with Betsy. Not only does she have an amazing eye on the ground, but she has competed and lived in the international scene that I also hope to aspire to one day. She is always there to give me guidance and advice, whether it is with a horse or client or personal.

Our job as trainers often includes wearing many “hats,” as my client Leslie Hoffman always tells me that I do. First, there is the hat of trainer and instructor, which is quite obvious to wear, but then comes the personal hat of cheerleader and counselor. Whether it is to keep the client pepped up and positively motivated during a difficult ride, or to help talk them off the cliff when their personally struggling to balance family issues, mysterious horse lameness, and the ever frustrating “riding learning curve”…or in some instances...the “riding learning valley of no hope,” which every rider fears they are stuck in at one point or another in their learning journey. The other hat we wear is being a student ourselves. This is one of my favorite hats! I have been truly blessed to have had the opportunity for great instruction my entire life. Heck, I even chased it all the way to Germany, when I couldn’t find the instructors I needed in West Virginia as a teenager. Although, I must say that my current situation is one of my most rewarding and most educational learning experiences of my life to this date. And this might surprise you, it is not only because of my two great mentors/ instructors...it’s greatly because of the clients, and horses I work with daily that teach me so much!

Most people would look at these two mentors and say “of course she has grown and developed….how could she not?” But the real lessons I have learned have come from my clients and their horses. They are the real teachers and I am thrilled to be wearing my “student hat” with them lately!

For years, I have been lucky enough to train with Nancy Smith of Chagrin, Ohio on many horses. Not only has she taught me an abundance of softness and feel, she has also become a mentor, friend, and role model. I sincerely respect how she handles each horse and client individually and never tries to make anyone “fit in a box.” She finds a way to bring out the best in every rider and horse. She inspires me to be a better rider and trainer daily, and for that I can never repay her. For about 6-7 years now, I have been based out of the gorgeous Shade Tree Farm, owned by Betsy Rebar Sell. It wasn’t until about 3 years ago that our relationship grew due to a special young red headed gelding that needed NODA News 2017 Page 37

I feel I have digressed by trying to give you a background on myself to allow you to understand where I am coming from with this article. So I will repeat the opening paragraph: As trainers we often rely on our clients to help provide us with horses to train and compete. Let’s face it; we are not trainers/instructors in this highprofile elitist sport to make a fortune. Although, it would be nice, wouldn’t it? We are in this profession for the love of the horse, the partnership between rider and horse, and for the journey of perfection that we all strive for in the sandbox. My “student hat” learned a tremendous amount this past weekend at the July NODA dressage show at Chagrin Valley Farms. The greatest instructor that weekend was a horse named Java Joe owned by Patty Keim. Java is a 14 yr. old Percheron cross, that was originally bought from Amish country to be an event horse for his amateur owner. He competed successfully through Novice level eventing, until Patty decided she wanted to retire her jump saddle and focus solely on dressage. I met patty about 3 years ago when I was asked to help her during the winter, while her trainer Francesca Nicoletti was in Florida for the season. I immediately liked Patty for her openness and upfront honesty…Java I wasn’t so sure about, as he liked to be heavy on the forehand and not through or in front of your leg. But there was something about this horse….his kind eye and his huge heart!


Fast forward 3 years and Java is boarded at Shade Tree Farm and I am pleased to share in his training education with Francesca. I am thrilled when Patty asks if I can give him a schooling ride because he is so fun now. I look forward to my time on his back and smile every time he comes through and weights his hind legs.

huge lesson while wearing my “student hat”. He taught me that a willing horse with a kind eye and a giant heart can and will surpass your wildest dreams. He taught me to look inside the horses and not judge a horses limits by their breed or conformation, but to judge them by their honesty, work ethic, and their soul. I was very humbled that weekend as I looked around at the great group of That being said, I recently lost my gorgeous mare Rae people congratulating me on a great ride, and winning Sangria and although it was a long process that we knew score. It wasn’t me that deserved this, it was my teacher might be coming…it didn’t make it any easier. During that that day that did….Java Joe! terrible week following the loss of my girl I got the most gracious and considerate text I think I have ever gotten…. So, I want to take a moment to thanks all the people in my Patty: “I have been thinking about the NODA show life, clients and owners, that have allowed me to learn and since I do not need any scores, I thought it might be with my “student hat’ on while riding their horse. It fun if YOU showed him and took him Intermediate 1 for started with Shari Hilliard and the extremely talented Zoe the first time.” Isabella, then came Donna Mayne with the challenging but ever so rewarding Rae Sangria who taught me so much Mind you, this is coming from a client who has done most finesse. Betsy Rebar Sell’s Dauntless teaches me daily to of the training on the horse herself, and debuted him at “think more” while riding and my riding has improved PSG herself for both of their maiden voyages down that tremendously with Dauntless as a “professor.”. Then there centerline. So, I know it would mean that much to her to is Java Joe, who taught me to be humble and look inside to debut him herself at I1, which she was fully capable of find the inner talent!! doing. I was so taken back by her generous and thoughtful offer and said “YES I would LOVE too!!” Thank you to all these 4 legged instructors and to all the other horses I didn’t mention, and their owners! You all As Java and I prepared for the upcoming show and tried to have educated me beyond what you know and I look string together many of the movements for our test, my forward to leaning more with my “student hat” on top of eyes become so much more open to this phenomenal head. horse. He tried so hard to “get” what I was asking. Yes it my was tough for him to carry himself, and really sit, but he NEVER said NO! Which we all know is such a special quality in a horse. The morning of the show was a crazy whirlwind. Storms rolled in and 15 minutes into our warmup the show was called to a halt until the lightening passed. This was definitely a worry with a horse that has a limited amount of energy and is used to a short and precise warm up routine. So, we were all a little concerned if I could get Java back in the right mind set, but Java had this...I should have known! He cantered down centerline and nailed his first I1 test winning the class with a 63+%!! The horse that I was hesitant about when I met him,due to his big physique and heavy forehand, gave me his ALL and proved that even the underdog type of horses can be number one. This special horse also won the high score FEI high point award for the weekend with his I1 score. As professional riders, I think we are always looking for that very special athletic horse with enormous gaits that can take us to the top. This weekend Java taught me a NODA News 2017 Page 38
