Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canucks! Beautiful fall colors everywhere and nice crisp fall riding. Although I dread winter coming, I do enjoy riding in cooler weather for a change. Beautiful pics Paintlover!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow canucks =)

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

Schooling Show

Hey, I got 68 points (a good score) and 2nd place in dressage Intro A on Saturday. To me, that means I can start showing Intro B (got 65 points there) and C next season. Here are a few shots to show off 30 year old Dancing Star.





I had a good time and wasn't nervous at all. I've always had a hard time performing but, knock on wood, so far I've enjoyed this.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends. Happy Thanksgiving to you Canadians. Hope your weather was as beautiful as ours.

Thanks, WG. I've got to firm up those abs and work on the elbows though. There's so much to learn and improve on. We've been working on bending and the judge's comments were encouraging - "keep practicing the bending" instead of "need to bend".

Three men - a Canadian farmer, Osama bin Laden and a kiwi are all walking together one day...




They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it.




'I will give each of you one wish, which is three wishes in total',says the Genie.




The Canadian says, 'I am a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada '




POOF! With the blink of the Genie's eye, the land in Canada was forever fertile for farming.




Osama was amazed, so he said, 'I want a wall around Afghanistan , Palestine , Iraq and Iran so that no infidels, Americans or Canadians can come into our precious land.'




POOF! Again, with the blink of the Genie's eye, there was a huge wall around those countries.




The kiwi says, 'I am very curious.Please tell me more about this wall.'




The Genie explains, 'Well, it's about 5,000 feet high, 5oo feet thick and completely surrounds the countries.
Nothing can get in or out;it's virtually impenetrable.'




The kiwi sits down on his Harley , cracks a beer, lights a cigarette, smiles and says,




'Fill it with water.'





Thats bouind to have upset some one

Same things Ive gotta work on...had my lesson today, I told my trainer to just duct tape my elbows to my sides. And my abs...lets just say I havent been doing myself any favors lately!

Lesson was great today though, Kes is light in the bridle, is bending better and is listening so well in the snaffle. We did a lot of canter work and she is doing sooo much better. Shes gaining more confidence, Im really happy with how things are going.
