Hello HorseForum! I haven't been on in ages! My shoulder got hurt so I'm having to get my online horse fix. I can't even groom! Yuck!
I've been so busy riding my new horse, Parker. Lessons all the time...planning a great season this year! Parker is looking great. I need to post some new pics of him on here. Aggie is also doing great! I've started trail riding him. I think I might take him to a "competitive trail challenge." I haven't decided yet though because they are a bit pricey and I need to save my money for Parker's events. My daughter is almost 2! It goes by so fast.
But anyway...the juicy rant.
The mother in law...monster in law. She has been harassing us for weeks that we don't see her enough. We see her about once a month. We're busy, active, young family that doesn't have the time. She says that my daughter "won't know her." Whine whine whine. For a recap this is the same woman that when my husband announced our engagement looking at my ring said, "Oh we could have helped you find something cheaper." Well now her gig is she wants to come to MY horse events to see my daughter and husband because "we're at them all the time so she'll just have to come." So my husband has told her several times that I don't want a big crowd around me...it's distracting...so on and so forth. He's completely supportive of my decision to block her from my horse time. Well one of my events is 40 minutes from her town. The family just happens to be having a get together the night of my event. So she's all excited because "it's only 40 minutes away you can stop by for dinner!" To which I say sarcastically, "Yeah I'll just park my horses on the side of your suburb neighborhood street for a few hours while we visit." To which she really says, "Is that a problem? I'm sure the neighbors won't mind." Are non-horse people that stupid about horses?
Kudos for reading! And hello to people on here that I am just now meeting...I'm sure there are so many new faces on here!
Pics of the new guy! We've been doing tons of gymnastics...and riding on trails and eventing courses (without the jumps....just up the hills and "looking" at the jumps) to get him toned. A few little jumps we've started the last few weeks.
