I'd give him a snapshot that the results would show up a little longer than 12 seconds. More like 12 days.

I had a great and much needed lesson tonight after a stressful day at work. The weather turned suddenly so we rode inside. Koolio was awesome and I think I am finally getting my seat a little more together to apply the aids more consistently and he responds beautifully.

Unfortunately, next week is our last dressage lesson until spring. Hopefully I can find a few clinics and possibly board Koolio for a few months over the winter to keep up all the skills we have gained. I'd like to make a few dressage shows next spring, as I finally feel like we are almost ready.

My daughter's mare was off so she rode Sam in lessons tonight. Once again, he proved that although he is 23 years old and semi-retred he's still got it. All the trail riding we have been doing has kept him in pretty good shape and it seems he has not forgotten his dressage training from many years ago.

I am proud of both my "boys" tonight. They both did awesome.

I am up early again-darn sleep pattern! Did a town run yesterday-got some pellets for the stove so we can do a leak test. The nights are cooling down quite quickly so we'll be getting a pallet of pellets soon, and be ready for Old Man Winter!

Got the front chestnuts off Wendy already-both have had some grazing on our greenery & we're getting used to each other's ways. Millie naps a lot & is a slow eater-haven't seen Wendy down yet, but she does watch me a lot-I might try some different tack on her today, just to see what fits.

Have a good day, everyone!

Good morning all....Lovin the pics!! I'm waiting to get up my son to get him off to school so I can go to bed.( I work over night) I called and left a message for the farrier so the old man can get a trim. I'm starting to get riding withdrawals, this is the best time of year to ride and the old man just can't do trails anymore. But the way he dragged me to the barn to eat I wonder some times. Well let me wake up the husband for work first, have a great day everyone.

Good morning and sleep tight there equine24.

Ccg, glad you are getting close to being covered for the winter. Hopefully there will be no leaks and plenty of heat. Can't wait to see pics of you and Wendy enjoying rides.

CS, those morning pics are great.

Koolio, sounds like y'all are really getting in sync and enjoying the learning. I hope we get to enjoy pics of the shows you event in next spring.

Thank you I Love mornings.. Although no sun this morning we had a front moving through. And I was more worried about one of the horses being off on a front.
I called the owner and I guess he has a bit of Artur in his knee. I gave him so Bute for her and he was happily munching grass when I left.

Here are the pictures I didn't get to post yesterday.

Takes a real guy to look at a lovely dressed up young women and... focus on the pick up behind the tree. ha!ha!

NM71, nice to know the ride with your mom was fun. But... are you cheating??? You look way too young to be on this thread!!!
Yes, I'm from Quebec, the French Canadian part of Canada. English is my second language.

The new barn is really shaping up. Floor is done and wall structure is up. I believe the trusses will be next.
Had my first Pilates session yesterday. Oh! My, I feel muscles I didn't know I had.

I also feel the need to ride as much as possible, as days get shorter and we feel the riding season is ending soon. So, I going to ride now!

Hey everyone!

I have been so busy with work and trying to get as much riding in as possible! We leave for Myrtle Beach Friday night for a week so I am also trying to pack. I always go to MB for a week in June with a friend and then hubby and I go in September. We take our corgi, Wyatt, and he loves it.

Cacowgirl, soundls like you are adjusting well again to horse ownership!

Critter, Bre's dress is gorgeous.

Love all the pictures and updates from everyone! And like Eole, I laughed at Roady's comment about the car! LOL

I wanted to share yet another video with you. This was taken on Sunday when Isabella and I cantered the poles for the very first time. We have trotted the pole pattern before but never cantered. She even did a few flying lead changes! I am enjoying her so SO much! I know my riding has a way to go..I notice my heels need to stay down more at the canter and I need to stop dropping my shoulder when I turn.
