Im pretty sure it is just that wee bit too long for nyx's back aswell. But im hoping she might grow into it before I start riding her. Otherwise..... New saddle!!!!

Good luck at the open day!

The jig lol my old gelding used to do that very well even after a long gallop he would still do it. :l

Poppy your mare is striking! I love her please pet me and give me a treat face!!
Nyx your mares face is priceless, like ya ok what now....anything else i must do....ha ha. my yearling does the same thing
Oh the fantastic jig, my gelding does it before we leave (usually with me hanging half off the saddle), before we go for a good race across the field, and of course when he thinks we're on our way back home. Or if he notices a horse eating piece of firewood someone lost on the side of our road....yea love the jig... :P

I think Lizzy ought to be owned by a child lol. Tonight the bm's daughter who always hangs around the barn of course, wanted to lead Lizzy down from her paddock. Since it was raining she normally does her jig all the way down the hill and into the barn. She hates rain. Well as soon as she realized the kid was leading her, her head dropped and she did a nice slow walk, so now I know she can do it lol.

My goal is to get a nice aussie saddle for Lizzy. Sooner rather than later of course lol. But her shape is changing so much lately I should probably wait until next year. Plus I do still love my saddle.

So what did everyone else do today?

Well the day has just started for me.. Yesterday I went and saw that pally mare and OH MY she was beautiful! Unfortunately she was not suitable for a beginner wanting to gain her confidence and the owner was very honest. But I could have taken her in a heart beat, she has soooo much potential! Her vices were that she was quiet piggy (typical mare) and was a dream in a yard but when trying to ride in an open paddock she would not quiet spook but freak out at little things as an excuse to get out of doing work. All things that could be fixed with re-training. :)

Today im going to look at a few ponies. I love looking at horses for other people but my for its hard to restrain from buying every single one lol.

Oh that sounds fun. So I have never gone horse shopping. I did what you never do and bought the first one I saw. And it wasn't really horse shopping. I went and looked at a horse at the barn I was going to be bringing a horse and when I saw her I had made up my mind lol. I actually made up my mind before I even saw her. She was cheap and I was looking for a project.

Do you get to ride the horses too? Or just go along to give your opinion?

Lol I done that with nyx. Saw her online and pretty much called the owner and said ill buy her. I just couldnt pass her up! And she was so far away that I couldnt waste time looking at her then travelling back lol could have turned out bad but I just knew.

Yep ill ride them if I think they are suitable, I didnt ride the pally yesterday I had made up my mind she wasnt suitable before she was even saddled and because the owner was so honest, which was very appreciated.

Another thing is, on their website, they have an option to do an online application, but then they say "You may also send a résumé to..." blah blah. And it asks for the same information that is in the online application form. Everyone I've asked says it's either or, and that I'm fine by sending my cover letter and résumé, that I don't need to do the online application. I hope that's correct, because I sent it about two weeks ago. >_<

Ohh what kinda cake??

So pretty sure we found the perfect mare! :) a little 13hh+ mare shes absolutley adorable. We think she maybe a Welsh cross appy shes all white with a few spots.
Great around the kids almost completely de sesnsitised, needs a little work in the saddle but mostly only needs to gain trust. So shes getting a vet check as she has a bit of a turned out hoof but her hooves do need a bit of corrective trimming.
So if my aunt agrees to buy her I get to take her under my wing for a few weeks and give her a bit if work and my aunt a few lessons so to speak. :)

So exciting

That would be fun doing the touch exhibits :) maybe ring them and just ask whats going on, just to ease your mind so you can relax a little, and that would also show your keen. :)
Whats the worse that can happen? Haha
