*waves* i'm back and i missed you guys!!!
ok so i know it's been like oh what 6 mos!?!? eeps ages!!! anyway been busy with fall hunter paces then winter riding and work getting ready for spring paces, shows and events which all start in the next few weeks!!
my horses are all good. trying a high protein feed out on my usually high energy TB to build more muscle for HP's as we have a very aggressive schedule of jumper shows and hunter paces this season so will post updates in the nutrition thread when i see how it works.
and everyone else is great! duke my eventer is going wonderfully at dressage and finally can do halt/canter w/o falling all over himself (YAY stronger hind end). i don't really jump in the off season as i don't see any reason for any of my guys to focus on that when we can improve strength and balance and coordinate so much more on the flat and then all we need is a few jumping lessons before shows start and we're good.
plan is to do a jumper show to prep for the hunter paces (doing just 2'6" prob since we don't jump much in the off season why push it) with sky and opal (who my one friend/student is leasing!). then duke will do a jumper show a few weeks before our XC schooling then a few weeks after that in may we do our first xc show of the season (keeping it to BN for now even though he can jump higher i want more focus from him on show day with the commotion before we move up).
so yeah things are good OOOOH and my trail horse rescue arab and i are entered into america's greatest trail horse competition this april to help promote the rescuce - i'll post updates on that in a little bit as well in the trail section.
sooo HOW ARE YOU GUYS?!?! Missed you all SOOOOOOOOO much! and where's nelson's mom!??! hi hi hi! *waves*
would love to hear from all of you!
