I'll tell my trainer, I keep getting told off for not maintaining a steady contact

You both look fabulous GH! My hubby was watching Happy Gilmore the other night and when it came up I chuckled and he says "yeah, I know funny movie huh?" I said, well yes it is a funny movie but I was thinking about this super cute horse named Appy Gilmore I just adore his name, super clever!

To anyone who thinks that they are less than perfect, listen up, not one of us is perfect, so stop waiting for tomorrow and live for today.
I can totally relate! I did the corporate suit/desk thing for years after I finished college, got married & had my daughter. I gained quite a bit during that time. Quitting my broker's job and going back to training horses full time, hitting the gym, no more mcd's or soda has taken quite a bit of it off but I still have quite a few pounds to shed, about 25 to go and I should be back in that one pair of jeans gathering dust in my closet. It's not easy but possible. Thought I'd add that as you definitely aren't alone in your struggle with weight. You've got a weight challenged soul sister here

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

These pictures are amazing, you look like a great team. I love how what you wore for english is a great color on him! He is gorgeous and probably so happy to have mom back riding him and spending time with him again. Keep up the great work!

Your horse is an extension of you.

You are far to hard on yourself 'Golden Horse' - These photos are amazing and you both look fantastic - you are right NO ONE is perfect and we all have the right to enjoy ourselves - well done to you for getting out there and enjoying your horse as he obviously enjoys your company as well!!!

I will share the Kur and the marks once it has been judged, but here is a clip from our first ever Training test


We haven't cantered much, needs a little work

He looks amazing in western too...I'm jealous. I loved your George Strait theme.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that's why it's called the present.

The test score was 57.92, not bad when I got a stunning 4 for my first canter circle.

What you saw there
Working Trot K - C 6
20m trot circle at C 6
Canter transition 6.5
Canter circle at B 6
Working trot 6
Turn down center line and halt 7 YIPPEEE we have struggled so much at that one


5 for gaits
6 for impulsion
5 for submission
5 for rider
