You're an idiot. Upload the picture of your finger :P They need evidence.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Yaaay! I got a Kieffer saddle that needs just a minor repair, which my saddle fitter will do for a very reasonable price! Also, the chiro helped Snickers with his cracking in hind legs and it's such a beautiful spring here!

I was very touched today by the way Snickers acted. All the herd was far in their winter/spring pastures, so I went looking for him there. It was really slippery and muddy in many places, because some parts of the pasture have been a bit flooded by the nearby river after the ice melted. When I found him and he came to me, we followed the rest of the herd, which had decided to trot/canter happily up a hill to go to their hay bin. This is when I first went "awww!", because Snickers didn't run with them, but walked slowly by my side, as I stumbled in the mud.

We then reached a little creek with muddy banks and I tried to encourage Snickers to follow the others and jump over it, but he heistated and seemed to be unsure that it's safe, so I went first. Here came the second "awww!", because I heard him follow me and jump over the creek, as he saw me go over it. :)

And then I tripped in the mud at quite a steep place, cringing a bit, because I feared that I might accidentaly get hit by his knees in my back, as he was just behind me. Then I had the largest "awww!" of the day - because he stopped dead in his tracks, in a very awkward position, on a muddy slope, slowly sliding downwards, just centimeters away from my back, and put his head over my shoulder, as if checking if I was ok. He stood in this position, while I managed to get up and clear the path for him to continue our way. So sweet! :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Well my guy friend beat me at the gymkhana unfortunately (well actually he was riding two horses and he beat me on one and the other he kept getting disqualified on so I half beat him), but I still played a GREAT April Fool's joke on him!

Oh Cowgirl Up

At least you had fun, Cheyennes mom!

And happy birthday, Sunny! :)

I learned a shocking fact last night. The story is that the barn where I took my first lesons, got to know Snickers and leased him before buying, had burned down completely a couple of years ago. Both stables and the BO's house went down in flames in a matter of minutes - it was a strange and horrible accident, but luckily, no people were hurt and almost all the horses were out in the pastures, except for two. The two horses who had been stabled, were rescued in the last moment. Turns out, one of these horses was Snickers!! When I was told this, the world froze for a minute and I hugged Snickers tight, not letting him go. He literally has come through fire to reach me. I HAVE to find the person who saved Snicks so that I can thank him/her!

Since this seems to be a pretty random thread I will use it to say... I MEET MY MARE TOMORROW!!! I am so excited!!!! 4 yo QH my friend says she is a bay but I won't trust that, he's not much of a horse person and wouldn't know the difference lol! I am guessing she is probably just a dark brown... At any rate, EXCITED! I don't know how I will sleep! It has been WAY too long since I have had my own horse! Now... we will see if she lets me halter her (from what I have heard she has only been led with a rope around her neck a few times, otherwise just been left to roam...)

"A horse is eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, and grace between your legs! It's something you just can't get from a pet hamster!"
