10/21/07 at the Barn and Vid of the Day

Blondie Cantering M caught me, on film, cueing with my inside leg.  I dispute that it was an actual squeeze, and was more of a twitch.  Any way, you can be the judge. Today was just perfect, weather-wise, so I … Continue reading

For an old guy, Sammy still has a ton of pep left in him. Too much, sometimes! It's always a blast to ride him, but it can be quite challenging, too. His lofty trot is so different from Blondie's, and … Continue reading

10/19/07 Pic of the Day and Lesson 2.4

Here's another shot of Gizmo. He's gone back home, and I don't know if he'll be back to the barn. I miss him hopping around his stall and bellowing at the ladies like the two year old stud colt he … Continue reading

10/18/07 Pic of the Day and Lesson 2.3

Blondie, wondering why I keep pestering her when she's trying to eat! It was a lovely evening for a riding lesson, with temps in the 70s.  The class was very small, with only Laurie, Audie, and I in attendance.  I … Continue reading

Here's Blondie, taking a break. From eating.  This doesn't happen often when she's outside, so I'm fortunate that I had the camera ready. Lessons start again tomorrow, and I'm anxious to learn if we've developed any bad habits over the … Continue reading

Abby and Alex getting ready for the Morgan championship M & D are back, so things will, hopefully, be a little more lively at the barn. It was a little too quiet for my tastes! It's really weird when I'm … Continue reading

10/14/07 At the Barn & Vid of the Day

Leave us alone! Here's a short video of me pestering Blondie and Ruby. All they wanted to do was eat some grass, and all I wanted them to do was smile for the camera. Blondie was getting really annoyed, but … Continue reading

This is Bailee, doing what Blondie won't. He's standing still. All by himself. See that?  Nice and calm, waiting for his rider to stop moving the silly ground poles around and pay some attention to him.  He's such a good boy!
