it has to improve BarrelracingArabian! If all good things come to an end then all bad things also have to end! You WILL get better. Maybe not right now but you will.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

I've been so sick the past couple days... just unable to even think about eating. There's a stomach flu going around and while I haven't puked I've been convinced I'm going to for 2-3 days now.

Today finally I managed a sandwich & have been having electrolyte popsicles and sports drinks the whole time so I didn't get too dehydrated but I've lost so much weight :/ [and I didn't really have any to lose to begin with!]

Blue eye sometimes apple sauce, jello or light foods like soups are good to try amd get down when sick like that. Yeah it is horrible when it comes back for round 2 haha but in the long run its better :). I have an extremely testy stomach so I have episodes that mirror a stomach flue all the time. Yogurt helps too :).

its something going around here. I got hit with it too. But it decided to incite its self back in. My dad is sick.

It's definitely something going around but not the same thing HCG, I doubt, lol! I'm on the other side of the world to you.

Feeling good today. Even had a bacon sandwich for breakfast. So I'm going to work and seeing how I go.

I had the best lesson EVER today! It might not seem like much but I actually learned a lot. A lot of no stirrup work created a lower, more controlled post which I have been failing at since day 1, and FINALLY a balanced, controlled, and well sat canter with no bouncing!!!! It also taught me to stretch my leg a lot and use my upper calf to grip up! I also finally got Chase to do trot circles which I normally can't because the little kids who get lessons on him just rip on his face and don't use leg at all. And I also got to do a few canter circles which was amazing!

Rant OVER! But I was so so so happy today!

Almond Joy that's fantastic! No better feeling than a lesson that goes well, huh?

I used to really struggle to control my posting too, and I still jam up and bounce in the canter and sitting trot when I'm nervous. When I'm calm and confident I'm physically a pretty good rider, not that knowledgeable though [been a pleasure rider most of my life and concentrating mainly on jumping the rest so finesse isn't my strong point]

It's a wonderful feeling knowing that the colt I have trained almost completely by myself is turning out very well. Ruger is starting to get some serious horsepower behind him. I always knew he would have a big engine. He just sets and TURNS in his rollbacks and around his barrels and poles. Currently loping the barrel and pole pattern. Doesn't get hot or stupid, just chills and works.

This is a good picture of him...Really driving out of his turns.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Almond Joy, I'm so glad for you! That sounds fantastic!

I've been feeling kind of discouraged since my last lesson. I was on Holly and we had to do something really simply. Jump a vertical, stop straight, then turn and jump another vertical. I managed to mess it up almost every time!

Sorry that you're feeling sick, blue eyed pony. I hope you feel better soon!
