Diablo, aka the Villain's horse, and me Hee hee!! Today I was given a tour of the Excalibur stables!!! My dad's friend's daughter works there, and she offered to show me around. It was so cool! I was able to pet the stars of the show, and I even met the barn cat. All of […]
One of the babies not looking too happy about having to stand still. Not much to say today. Not sure what the posting schedule will be like over the holiday weekend, so if you celebrate Turkey Day, have a happy one. Heck, have a great weekend even if you don't. Me, I'll be busy eating. […]
Saber - he doesn't look like the ruthless killer of vile rodents, but he's the chief hunter at the barn. I'm off to the horse show!
The grass is always greener... Doesn't it figure that I'd wake up this morning feeling like crap? I hope I'm not coming down with a cold. I had a terrible headache, and now I have a lingering and distracting sore throat. I always get sick just in time for the holidays or a horse show, and […]
Argh! Running really late this evening, so I'll blog about the lesson tomorrow. Have to get up at 4:30!
Here is my girl before her first class at the first show we ever took her to. She gets so excited in the halter classes that she jumps and stands up, and just makes an utter fool of herself. She was like that at the first show this year, too. Maybe she's just so happy […]
I don't know why, but today seemed like a really long day! I'm so tired! Maybe the sudden temperature change has something to do with it. Jen took a lesson at the barn, and I rode Harley. Blondie still has a snotty nose, though I thought it wasn't as running as it was yesterday. Not […]
Warming up before our class at Medallions Today I headed off to the barn early; I was supposed to be in Frankenmuth, over an hour drive, by 12:30, so it was a rush to fit riding in. M asked if I wanted a longe line lesson before I rode Blondie, and I told her I […]
Blondie at Medallions To make a long story short, last night's lesson was pretty much a disaster. It was one of those lessons where you wonder why you're still riding. I didn't fall or anything quite so dramatic, but Ritz and I just weren't communicating effectively, and I was left rather frustrated. I was riding […]
Tonight was a rough, exhausting lesson. Rode Ritz again, and we didn't hit it off. I'll write up more tomorrow. Now I just want to warm up and go to bed!
