    Smile I just have to brag! :)

    Okay so I just need to tell fellow horse lovers!
    I have been having a hard time progressing with my mare...she just didn't seem to improve at all. What didn't help was that she got herself very excited/nervous everytime I rode her. So I looked into supplements that would help her calm down, so I ended up putting her on a B-12 complex and raspberry leaves which have both helped her stay calm and relaxed when I'm riding her.

    But anyways I just had to tell you guys that now that she has been on the supplements almost every ride, especially yesterdays and todays have been AMAZING! And this is making me get even more excited for our first show April 21-22. :)

    Thanks so much for reading this rambling! :)

    This is me and her after our ride today. She loves her kisses! <3 (Ha btw this pic makes her look like she has an awful head and neck lol)

    So happy for you! I know the feeling. A month ago, I was nervous and had no confidence while ridng my mare. After a month of lessons with a trainer, my confidence is back and today I took my mare on a trail ride...just the two of us, and it was amazing!

    It's a great feeling isn't it? When things finally "click"?

    Hope you enjoy an endless number of rides together!

    It's is absolutely the best feeling when it all "clicks" we have worked so hard for the past year or two since I've broke her out. I'm super exited to get in the ring and show people what I have done with her! Especially to the trainer that she was at for 6 weeks! I can't wait to talk to him after the show he will be judging us at. :))

    Congrats on eveything with your mare too! I hope you guys keep progressing (cause there is always something to improve on :} )!! Good luck with everything to come with her!!

    Totally get it-a neighbor rode w/me today so both my horses got to go out-it was quite windy & they were so good, & a Arab in the wind can be a handful!

    Oh yes they can be! Lol my sister used to have an Arab! Morgan's are the same way! Lol. Especially my mare. She can be a total brat sometimes.
