Her ears perked up and she trotted off so pretty. She didn't even try to go back to the hitching post.

The lady I bought it from used English leathers and stirrups on it so the Aussie leathers and strirrups were still in bubble wrap. She gave me the girth as well. It is prety worn but will work until I get a new one. The English style rigging will take some getting used to but OMG it is such a comfy ride.

Here is a pic. It isn't situated correctly because I had already untacked her when I remembered I wanted to take a picture so I just threw everything back up on her. I think I really got a good deal!

Oh, and Grace.....next Sunday evening will be interesting!! Will definitely be watching the game. May the best team win!
I do think the Seahawks have cooler uniforms!

Happy New Year everyone. Stan, soak up that sun for all of us!

Hunter Has a saddle like that too
She really likes it too

Photos of the mornings ride went out for about 4 hours the last photo is Bugs and Kate getting a well earned rest. No real issues he walked out as the leader nicely though he has developed a habbit I will ned to adjust. I have taught him the one rein stop, and that position is also his safe place. So now, when I ask for his head at my boot he starts to nibble my shoes. Yesterday he had the rams leg in his mouth. No malace or injury to the ram its just one of the things he does. Never a dull moment.

Love the pictures Stan

Stan those pictures just having me wishing for spring...though even in spring I have no where that lovely to ride.

Corgi - congrats on the new saddle! Its sort of like a dressage saddle, no? I could ride in that and be very comfortable on the trails I think. If I ever get on the trails. I'm learning show horses don't do trails.

Gearing up for show season...next month (Feb) we start hitting the schooling shows to prep for our big shows starting in May. Hubby and I pulled out the calendar tonight and started planning for the 2013 season, was so exciting to commit to it and start to plan.

Cheers to you all for a fabulous 2013!

With Grace. Why can't a show horse go on the trails. And if its a definate no time for a second horse. The cost is not to much more. Perhaps a change in horse trailer design which I am considering, accommodation is in my thoughts, then there is the saddle, and tough riding gear, you will have two of everything. Sound like a good idea? Does it.

Stan- I have learned that a show horse "down time" is September thru November. I guess during those months I could take her somewhere, but this past fall I moved her into training, and now we're in show prep mode. And then show season. Next fall I will take advantage of the down time and see if I can't get her on some trails. Oh, and the second horse will NEVER happen...poor hubby can hardly manage my obsession of just one!

Did I tell you all I spoke with a past owner, who, while trained her as a three year old, also taught her to chase cows? Loved that story! No wonder she's not spooky!
