    ♥ The Lovebug Thread ♥

    So since I'm an avid photographer of my horse and my adventures with her, I thought instead of starting a new thread whenever she does something new, to just put all my pictures together.

    2011 has been an amazing year so far, signalling my return to riding after basically 2 years off due to injury. I'll be sharing photos of my rides and times with Honey from this year on!

    Lovebug (more commonly known as Honey), is a 15hh, 7yr old, NZ Standardbred mare. I've had the pleasure of owning her since Aug 2008 and she was backed and started by myself (with some help) in Oct 2008. Sadly due to my riding accident in Mar 09, she's pretty much been a pasture pony and is quite the porker at the moment, so yes her saddle is forward, but we're working on slimming her waistline so we can get it back. It is sitting otherwise evenly on her back.

    Our first ride wasn't photographed, this is from our 2nd ride on the 7th Jan.

    Posting this one because its so nice to see me RELAXED in the saddle so soon after being back in it!

    Lovely photos, I bet it's great being back in the saddle again after all that time off.

    What a cutie! She's adorable and I'm glad you two are getting a chance to work again. (:

    Third Ride; 9th Jan 2011

    Since my gelding was sold on the 8th and moved that day, I didn't get a chance to ride Honey. She was pretty eager to go after having her day off! It was a day of testing, and you can read more about my rides in my journal on here... Dressage Tails (third ride's title is "When you're not panicking after a spook, you know you've struck gold.")

    Cooling down and she's still trying her heart out, bless her <3

    Thanks Tessa T and HairyCob! I'm just so ecstatic! I can't stop smiling like a loon!

    Fourth ride; 10th Jan 2011

    This ride was interesting, the return of the horse nearest Honey made her nappy at the area near him, and then another horse broke out of his paddock and was chilling nearby... so Honey was showing her attention span in the beginning to be 5 seconds long lol. Then we had some speed violations and it was almost Addington Raceway in the paddock - ironic I didn't freak, and when she wobble-cantered, I praised her and let her try a few more times when she felt she could balance us both. Was fun despite her mareish arrogance towards the boys watching her!

    Speeding a little!

    I like this one. Not sure why.

    Despite all our trotting and wobble cantering, its SO nice to be able to come back to a walk and not have to worry about her jig jogging off and actually wanting to be where I want her to be <3

    And despite not being riding photos, I got a few shots of her later in the day (albeit on my old camera because my new one's battery had died)

    Honey checking me out.
