This is a side view of my pasture. You can see a three sided shelter. Rainn uses it a lot. For whatever reason Jay! Nor the other horse I had never use it. . Rainn is the smart one and stays out of the wind and rain in it. Hahah. The other two get cold or soaked!
If you can see the manure pile, we will add to the barn and build a tack room and hay loft for me this spring. (Part of my inheritance! Hahaha)
This fall we've added electric to my section...so we have lights and electric heated buckets...which is really cool to me. I've never been so privileged!!
My mom owns about 35 acres total.....maybe someday it will be ours....we will see.
I am 47 years old and just started horse back riding lessons 5 months ago. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to ride and eventually own a horse. I love everything about it, even my first UPD (unplanned dismount) that warranted a trip to the doctor for a tailbone x-ray! Fortunately, nothing was broken. I am interested in taking a riding vacation/clinic that includes lessons, trail rides, and accommodations. If anyone knows of a good clinic, please let me know. Thanks.
sorry for the pic... (It's me and my son on New Years). I haven't been able to post pictures for weeks so I shut the computer down and did some updates and finally.... I posted a pic... has nothing to do with the thread but... there it is!
Aw, thanks all, for the warm welcome. I'm Kerri in Southern California. My current horse is Ulysses, my Azteca (hoping the pic posts!). I've had him since September 2012. I had lost my 30 year old MFT earlier that summer (after 20 years together) and wasn't sure I would be ready for another guy for awhile. But, things happen for a reason and I'm pretty lucky they did. He's such a great horse!
So, I'm primarily a trail rider. Used to do CTR with my other gelding and my new boy can go for hours through all sorts of terrain. Am thinking about looking at some local rides for him this year. Also, have decided to learn a new discipline after all these years so just started taking dressage lessons with a local trainer. That's going to be a whole new adventure this year! Oh, and kind of a workout...LOL!
Again thanks! Looking forward to meeting you all!
BTW, this pic was taken when my mom took her show stuff out of storage and we played dress up! Trust me, my horse would rather be head to toe in the mud then pretending to be all fancy. Ha!
Welcome to our new posters! So glad to hear Isabella is on the mend. Sorry that some of you are having such cols weather. I walked to a neighbor's today & we sat on her front porch-it was 63 degrees & only a slight breeze. Hubby was out on the Polaris-I enjoyed the peace & quiet, which I don't get very often.
We have tires coming for his Long trailer that we use to get our water-they should be here Monday, then he can mount them & we can get water again. All the Christmas stuff is back in storage-he put it in my container instead of back in his-oh well, someday we'll get some more-amazing how much stuff we can accumulate.
I have a full box to go to my donation place. Have to make space for the new. Sent off the transfer for my Morgan mare yesterday & joined the Registry, so will be getting their magazine soon. It's already a busy year!
