Well, I found out that I may or may not have time to ride this month . My one co-worker is on vacation until the 16th and my other co-worker/manager just got another job and she's leaving on the 8th. So, I'll be working 7am to 930pm for the forseeable future without a day off....

Good money bud dang I'm going to be tired and grumpy.

I think you have an evil side to you!!
DH has already challenged me to ride Willow bareback (are you secretly in league?) and I'm 99% certain I'm going to slide right off her if she spooks!!!

I'm game! I need to work on really strengthening my lower leg a little more anyway, I've gotten a little lazy since I took a break from showing a while ago :P This could really motivate me to get back in the ring, or at least feel more confident ;) Anyone wanna pitch in on and stock up on a good few bottles of moscato with me? I know after school, work, and riding I'll probably need a glass or two... or a whole bottle :P

That's okay. You can do "drop your stirrups December"!

FINE! Uggghhhh... It's cos you've pressurized me into doing it.
If I die its entirely your fault.
Ba! Humbug! (that's the Christmas spirit!)

I've been going no stirrups already for a week, so I'm in! I'm also a writer and participating in National Novel Writing Month, which is also this month. What's up with so many things going on in November?

Guess the "N" in November lends itself well to alliteration.

I had my first ride for NSN this evening. With things going on in my job, my time is going to be very limited for riding the next couple weeks, but I plan to sneak one in whenever I have the chance. I got a very few pictures, but I've got a video loading now....only 148 minutes remaining *eyeroll*.

Goober took one step to follow me but stopped when I said "whoa", then proceeded to just stand there with his head cocked to the side to keep the rein slack. Stood exactly like this the entire time I was finishing filling one tank and moving the hose to another LOL.

Turning in a slow spin LOL.

I'm in :) rode bareback yesterday and I need to work on my leg and core strength so why not?

Here's my video...finally. Forgive Rafe's goofiness with the weaving at the beginning. We're working on turning off of leg cues and he is at the point where he sometimes gets confused about what I'm asking. I was trying for a leg yield but he kept thinking "turn" LOL.
