    Well, that was interesting - I was riding Éowyn bareback in the pasture and she spooked (the first time she's really spooked since I've had her) and somehow I landed on my feet! I really wish somebody had been videoing it, so I could see how I pulled that off! Anyway - got our first spook over with, and it really wasn't that bad. :)

    That's so bizarre!!

    I know!! Im still blown away about it..

    I fenced of the whole area until I figure it out. No other horses have gotten in there. Plus she got a gut full of old hay for the cows so I been checking her alot for colic.

    Nyx is apparently a ninja horse.

    Wow while I was gone I missed a ninja horse haha. So what is western dressage exactly? How is it different from western pleasure?

    And update on Lizzy:

    Vet put her at a 4/9 now which makes me really excited, she moved up a whole number since June 15. Just need to get her to a 5 now. And her limping is due to her needing front shoes :(

    Her soles were really squishy, hence why I couldn't tell which leg she was limping on because it was both. But at least it's an easy fix, pricey, but simple enough. She will need them from here on out at least during the summer. She might get to have them pulled for winter but we will have to wait and see on that one.

    And her bloodwork will be in on Friday so I'm really hoping her blood count has come up. She might always be on Red cell as it hasn't made her crazy and since she's not a pasture horse it will be good for her. It's cheap so I'm not to upset about that.

    But I definitely did a happy dance when I found out she didn't have any injuries or arthritis, she just needs shiny new shoes:)

    In western dressage you do a dressage test, but in western tack, and you jog not trot.

    You can also ride in any bit you want and it doesnt matter if you ride one handed or two handed.

    Ahh I see, that's pretty cool. I can't handle a jog, I like my horses to move lol. In my 8 years spent as a H/J the only time I rode western was for gymkhana, so naturally slow gaits irritate me lol.

    And Gypsy you are going to be my go to person for events next year :)
    My bm has given me full use of her h/j monster of a horse. She only does western and he knows how to jump and she's buying another game horse this fall so I get to show him next year, yay. I'm so excited. So how much do these events cost? I'm thinking I may have to stay in the MN, WI area for now as Lizzy is stacking up the costs for me already. Also if these events have dressage can I bring two horses? I would like Lizzy to do dressage but obviously she can't jump.
