Spotted-Tabby-Cat's Profile Picture
United States
I'm just a person who likes horse racing, cats, art, writing, History, paleozoology, books, older music (as in 100 years old or older), linguistics, and a few other things. Most of the stuff that pops up in my gallery is either HARPG, cat genetics, or a little history related stuff.

Language wise, I am a native English speaker and a heritage speaker of Castilian Spanish. I also know rudimentary German.
Puedo hablar Inglés, Castellano (Español), y un poquito de Alemán.
Ich spreche Englisch, Spanisch, und ein bisschen Deutsch.

Arousa Escola de Equitacíon Militar

Arousa Military Riding School

CoA by Spotted-Tabby-Cat


    The Arousa Escola de Equitacíon Militar is a stable located in Galicia, Spain dedicated to preserving the history of the cavalry horse, focusing on sound, versatile horses and the preservation of mounted combat techniques. 


    Arousa Escola de Equitacíon Militar is located on the outskirts of the village Punta Rocha*, near the town of Rianxo in the province of A Coruña. It borders the Ría de Arousa and encompasses a large area including a ridge, several hills, a small valley, a small fraga**, and a sizable expanse of coast.

*Punta Rocha: A made up village. All other named areas are real.
**Fraga: an isolated forest with deciduous trees, herbs, mosses, lichens and a diverse fauna.


    The Arousa Escola de Equitacíon Militar focuses on disciplines that mimic what a cavalry horse had to be able to do, therefore cavalry disciplines such as Skill at Arms, Major Howze, and Tent Pegging are the main focus. Dressage, being the foundational training and conditioning work is also done, up to alta escuela levels. Endurance/Raid is also participated in for the purpose of developing horses with good stamina. Eventing and show-jumping are also occasionally practiced, and horses are sometimes given bullfighting training.

RK3DE Inspection
Ralphie's Inspection extra for the J.C. Rolex Kentucky 3DE.

Story here, hopefully.

Quickly did this yesterday. The blue speckles are supposed to be rain, but I'm not sure the effect is entirely complete. And alas, some of the texture in the grass and bushes is hidden by the slight desaturation, darkening, and the rain. I was originally going to reference one of the other horses in the photo, but as I was sketching I realized that the pose is quite different from what Ralphie would be doing, so I started a different one. But I do have that sketch saved, and there is a good chance that it will eventually see the light of day. Rosalind looks really weird here (I blame it on trying to get the image done quickly), and there's something off about Ralphie's neck.

Horse & Rider:

El Marcador - The Marker

Un image extra de Sombreado por equiBREAK: el empacion de el entrenamiento de clicker con aprendiendo el marcador y costumbres. Aunque AEEM tiene un enfoque en preservando la historía del caballo de caballería, ciencia moderna es usado en muchos aspectos del establo, incluso entrenamiento. Por eso, entrenamiento de clicker es usado junto con mas tradicíonal métodos de entrenamiento. 

Sombreado no era tan seguro cuando Antón empezo su entrenamiento de clicker, pero aprendio rapidamente que el 'Moi ben!*' significo que el va a recibir un parte de zanahoria. Tambien aprendío que solo recibí un 'Moi ben!' si no era poniendo su cabeza en Antón y era relajado. 

*'Moi ben!'- Galego por 'Muy bien!'

La zanahoria es un poco desmasiado café y no naranja, y el brazo de Antón es muy palido. Pero, eso es que pasa cuando vives donde es lluvando casi todo el tiempo.

Nombre: Sombreado
Apodo: Sombreado
Sexo: Semental
Edad: 0 años
Raza: Cabalo Galego do Monte (Galician Pony)
Altura: 1.34 metros (cuando adulto)
Color: Negro
Genética: EE/aa/ff
Marcas: Pequeña estrella
Linaje: Fundación
Personalidad: Con mucho energía, Sombreado le gusta explorar su mundo y mete en todo, aunque tambien es tranquilo, no asustando facilmente. Inteligente, es facil entrenar lo, y ofrece muchos comportamientos.
Jinete Principal: Antón Guerrero-Aguado

An extra image of Sombreado for equiBREAK: the beginning of clicker training with learning the marker and manners. Although AEEM focuses on preserving the history of the cavalry horse, modern science is used in many aspects of the stable, including training. Because of that, clicker training is used in combination with more traditional methods of training.

Sombreado wasn't entirely sure when Antón started his clicker training, but he soon learned that 'Moi ben!'*' meant that he would receive a piece of carrot. He also learned that he only got a 'Moi ben!' when he wasn't putting his head into Antón and was relaxed.

*'Moi ben!' - Galician for 'Very good!'

The carrot piece is a little too brown and not orange, and Antón's arm is very pale. But, that is what happens when you live where it's raining most of the time.

Name: Sombreado
Nickname: Sombreado
Sex: Colt (Stallion)
Age: 0 years
Breed: Galician Pony (Cabalo Galego do Monte)
Height: 13.1 hh (when adult)
Color: Black

Rolex Dressage
Ralphie's Dressage for the J.C. Rolex Kentucky 3DE.

Story here, hopefully.

And Ralphie's back at it again! I don't know if I'll do the other two legs of the Grand Slam again this year, but I'll at least try my best to finish off Rolex. So here's Ralphie cantering down the centerline. A story of some sort will be added later, I hope.

How are you?
Spotted-Tabby-Cat Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2016
I'm doing pretty well right now, though I recently had a few low days. You?
MrBig2 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2016   Filmographer
Fine. How is Part 12?
Spotted-Tabby-Cat Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2016
I have the art done, just have to write up the description. I finally had the time (it took much less time than I thought it would) and motivation to do it. There are several new mutations left out, but that's mostly just because they are so new it's hard to know much about them.

How are you?

How is part 12 of your Cat Genetics Tutorial doing?
Spotted-Tabby-Cat Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016
Pretty good, but a bit stressed due to lots of stuff that needs to get done.

Not very well. Hopefully I get it done over Thanksgiving break, along with probably a few more cat-related things.

I find your cat genetics tutorials very useful! You explain and display the information very well uvu

I plan on working on the next one today and tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be finished and up soon.
