Is it heading my way too??? Darn this drizzle, and the winds last night were terrible!

I'm supposed to go to the barn today to ride, hopefully I can get it in later this afternoon, as I have 4 ten year old boys here from a sleepover party last night (my sons bday party) and there's no way my hubby can stay home alone with them without going insane...

I have to go to practice later today! I love Sunday...
I just let the horses out for their 2 hours of grazing. I will be glad when the danger of founder is over.
We have had rain off and on for the last 3 days, I only rode her one day at home. I hope she behaves later!

What a ride
Stella went out for another attempt with other horses yesterday. (great wheather) I thought i'd throw that I for those suffering from storms and snow.
The last time out she was most upset and was walked home. I spent the week getteing her used to the horse trailer again she was refusing to get in. I started to feed her in the float. That is an action I do not agree with, but had to try something new. She was getting in eating and backing out, no problem.
Come the time to go on the trek, Stella refused to be lead into the trailer after scratching my hair which is not easy to do considering there is not much left I resorted to the spoilt child adjustment method. I cut a two foot length of plastic water pipe. My wife tried to lead Stella onto the trailer and when she refused, I tickled her butt with it. Still refused, Roslyn kept the pressure on her halter and I tickled a little harder. In goes Stella no issue. I then took over the leading in and out a few times then sent her in on her own No issues Stella had stopped playing games, and is now loading with no problems.

I give the credit to my mother She used the same method on me when I acted like a spoilt child, the difference was she used a wooden spoon

The ride. First decent ride Stella has been on for 6 months. Only three other horses and we rode for 6 hours on hilly country. She never played up at any time, did not do her normal I'm frightened!! And scoot off to the side in an attempt to dismount me, and escape from the imagined horse eater. ( In NZ no predators, so she thought she was goinging to be eaten by a monster bird, rabbit, or was it a mouse.)

She is a very tired horse and the rider hit the hay for 9 hours as well, so, today she gets a walk I will be beside her also getting then kinks out.

Well done horse.

Izzy and I had a great day yesterday and again today. I tried out a bitless halter yesterday and used it again today. She is so responsive in it. I may not use the bit/bridle combo anymore.

We have worked through her barn sour issues through weekly lessons, and surprise, surprise...it wasn't really a barn sour issue. It was her sensing my nervousness. The lessons have built up my confidence and today was the second day in a row that we rode away from the barn and when we turned to come back, she didn't even try to hurry back.

Success!

Today's weather is perfect riding weather. I love Spring!

Just brushed another 5lbs of hair off of my horse - she's shedding like crazy!! I can tell it feels sooo good, because she stood there almost in a coma :) Just got a call from the construction guy who's now on his way to do more work on her barn exterior, (metal siding & trim), so need to log off - husband is steelhead fishing, so we'll see what's for dinner tonight!
Stan : Bless your mom for using the wooden spoon - they make excellent husbands, and loving sons in the long run :)
