Oops!! Hehe that's funny!! My Richard tries really hard to understand horses - I've caught him reading Fugly Horse from time to time! (I've learned a ton from that site, and he's having a blast reading it... weird, hey?)

Thanks FGR! The problem was sorted out today. That was after numerous phone calls to the place. They had a lot of people looking into it.
That's awesome that you got to ride today too! I need to figure out what's going on with Vega before i ride her again. I've been looking into a calming supplement, but i dunno if i want to do that.

Jazzy, that's cute that you gave your hubby a lesson on Possum, and cute how he thought he was really good until the reins and stirrups were gone (if that came across as mean, i'm sorry. I'm bad at wording stuff)
Sorry that you have to change water and stuff. I never liked doing that with my 20 gallon tank at home.
Do you work at like a pet store or something?

Well my evening is going well. I'm letting my ferrets run around as Tom plays Halo3. I will never understand the fascination men have with video games
Napoleon and Snowflake (the ferrets) love getting into trouble and for some reason Snowflakes loves biting my socks. It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't tickle.
I'll try and upload some pictures of the little buggers. It didn't work last time.

darylann - lol yeah it was pretty funny :) dont get me wrong...he is doing really well considering he has only been riding for 6 months and most of that time hes been stuck on cougar who only has 2 gaits: slow pace and fast pace lol he has great position but struggles with balancing on something other than the reins. hence why i made him do the no reins and stirrups thing. and yeah i work at an aquarium

JDI - my rich has always loved them but a) never had access to one growing up in the city and b) he used to think he would be less of a man if he did girly stuff like ride a horse lol hes over that now though :)

"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"

Appy, I might be missing something that was said about what is going on with Vega, but if you are referring to the bucking and rearing fits....a lot of it could be that she is just coming 5. different horses mature differently. Some never try funny business - some try it a lot. In my experience, horses between the ages of 3 and 5 spend a lot of time testing what they can get away with, and you just have to work through it in whatever way you can. You can always go back to basics for a while...use your new system with her, make her ground manners impeccable, even to the bridle work exercises I showed you...all stuff from the ground where you don't have to worry about being dumped. Also, I know you do parelli, so spend a lot of time with the 7 games. Between that and the bridle work, you have everything you need for cues when you get back in the saddle. :)

Also, that is cool that you looked through that journal I am keeping. I am really bad with journals, but I trying to periodically record my progress so that I can look back at it later. :)

I rode tonight...it was really chilly ;(. I worked more on spins, stops, and lead changes. I used a saddle today because, I am thinking that the reason I knotted my shoulder yesterday was from trying to catch my balance bareback during a rollback on Sunday (oops :) ). I now have saddle sores on my inner knee area though :(. It was still a good ride though.

Does anyone else type out long thought out responses to posts and then not post them? I do that all the time I guess I figure I may be wrong

Snowflake and Napoleon are my little babies. Napoleon is my little boy though, she's such a momma's boy

That's good that you're able to help your hubby, Jazzy. For him to come that far in 6 months is wonderful! I remember seeing his jumping pictures and he looked good.

AK, i talked to Tom today and he thinks i just really need to work her and that a supplement and letting her pasture turn out is a bad idea. He says the supplement will be covering the problem, not fixing it, which i totally agree. And he said if she has pasture turn out, the only guidance she'll have is from the other horses and from herself and she might get worse. So i will just have to go there everyday for at least an hour if not more (i'm definiately not complaining at all)
I do do parelli with her, but have stopped when the weather got yucky. I'll work on everything, maybe even try long lining her before i get back into the saddle. I'm thinking for her to get exercise 7 days a week will bring down her energy level a bit and make her more managable. Thanks for your help!
I guess I just thought that we had a better bond than we actually do! haha! Oh well, it will be a learning experience!

Oh no Appylover! Ferrets! I was at the pet store yesterday and I found a ferret there that I love! I want one so bad! My husband is not really for it though. I will buy it for my son and say it is his pet! :P
