Hi everyone, welcome Acorn
Grace: I'm sooooo happy for you with all the progress you have made with Kes! Love hearing about them
Stan: Sad that you have decided to "cut the cord" with Stella, but sometimes enough is enough. Glad that your looking forward to training your new boy
CW: good god woman, where have you been! Sooooo happy to see you back on here
Rose: your mustang is gooooorgeous!
On to my sassy mare....I decided to have my trainer ride her once a week for a little while to get her trained up a little faster. I really thought I could do it with bi-weekly lessons but I got in over my head a little bit. Yes...i'm a soft touch with her....when she acts up I panic....is it the saddle, is she sore....did she hurt herself....
My trainer told me to stop molly coddling her so much lmao and ride her through it. She is just being a baby and has my number. Yes yes I got everything checked out, neurotic mama that I am, her saddle is fine, she has no booboos except for the gauge on her forehead that makes her look like a 3 eyed poneh and got it from god knows what that's finally healing lol. (...must get some more bubble wrap....)
Went for a trail ride with my trainer last week monday, she was fine, I was a mess, but we got through it.
It is soo different when it's not your horse. Not that you don't care about it, but once you have your own, it becomes an extension of the family. I need to get a little tougher with her, and ride her like I should be.
On a good note, when she does act up she has a natural "piaffe" with ALOT of knee action, I was sooo happy and pissed off (peed off that she was being a brat) at the same time lol! For those that do not know what on earth I am talking about heres a video of a piaffe it starts at 56 sec.:
Off to work this morning, then going to ride my big Sassy mare. Have a great day everyone!
