    A THOUGHTFUL SCOTTISH HUSBAND?







    Did you hear about the thoughtful Scotsman who was heading out to the pub?






    He turned to his wee wife before leaving and said, '"Maggie, put your hat and coat on, lassie. "

    She replied, " Awe Jock that's nice; are you taking me tae the pub with you?"

    "Nay," Jock replied "I'm switching the heat off while I'm out."







    I found you

    Golden Horse, that hurt! I fell off pretty hard a little over a year ago. I got bruised up, but nothing in places that you can show online (at least with my figure) got all that bruised up. For a short while it made me more nervous. Then I think it actually boosted my confidence because I saw that I lived through it.

    Celeste, they are the only bruises I can share, I have to say that 4 hours sleep is not enough, I have aches and pains all over, including my little toe, which suddenly started throbbing about 3 am.

    I fell off because of nerves, we were trying our first under saddle canter with Ben, he bunny hopped into it, pulled me forward, lunged again, and I got scared, and managed to boot him in the sides, so he flew forward, found the arena fence in the way, and ducked away, by this time I was exiting over his left shoulder.

    Lessons learned:

    When your trainer is saying "SIT UP" listen to her.

    If you already have nerve issues about cantering, don't try cantering your greenie.

    Falling off isn't the end of the world, you will probably survive.

    Getting back on and riding walk and trot felt great.

    The decision to send Ben to my trainer for a month to work on his canter feels great. As does the decision to go for a reining lesson this week.

    Golden Horse - that looks so sore, I admire how well you've bounced back from it. I rode Willow last night for the first time since September when she just had a few light rides after a tendon injury. Her re-start got delayed after some mystery illness this year but she came out like Raging Bull and that should have been a warning to me to lunge her first. She pranced round like a newbie and pulled my arms a few inches longer. My back and legs are still aching this afternoon so not looking forward to todays session, hopefully she aches as much as I do so will have some sense and act her age

    I use Clinton Anderson's methods, sure helps for when the horse has been sitting for a length of time getting them paying attention/respecting me!
