Thanks Cinder :) all better now thank god and got back in the saddle today.

...although perhaps I should cut back on Monty's grain... Can anyone say mental pony? Wow haha all stiff and bracey and rushy today. I had to get off and round pen him until he was dripping before he would settle.

It was my first time and I was so excited! We didn't look that good but whatever, it was so much fun!!!!

We did small crossrails and I misinterpreted my trainer and went over another wone that was 2-3 holes higher... Woops!

How great, Almond Joy! First jumps are always so exciting. I still remember my first few jumps. And you usually never look good your first time jumping, so don't worry about it! You're still learning .

That sounds scary! Sounds like everything turned out alright, though.

The theme of yesterday's lesson was bending. The main exercise was a circle with a jump in the middle of it (if that makes sense). It was tricky but so much fun.

I was riding Skippy. I missed him so much! I forgot how much of a doll he really is. He had a few moments but he just makes me laugh.

I think I did pretty well. Next week I guess I'll have a temporary replacement instructor because my usual one will be somewhere.

Who here is in Pony Club? I am! Just wondering:)

There's no better way to build confidence than having a horse.

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 either sprained or cracked my thumb yesterday. Remind me, next time my neighbours ask for help, to tell them no?! OHMYGODDD never ever have I worked with such a bitch of a mare. The more I demanded respect from her the worse she behaved, number of times she clobbered me with her head isn't even funny and my poor thumb is in a splint. Work is going to be ermm, interesting today.

Hope y'all got what you wanted! I got pretty much everything that was on my list.....except the thoroughbred filly I wanted that was for sale in my local area. Haha oh well, there's always my birthday

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

My mother. She new that all of us liked horses, so she got my older sibling involved in horse 4-H and they went to horse camp. Ever since then, we have had horses. I grew up with them, and now I have joined horse 4-H. They don't have horse camps were I live currently, but that doesn't stop me from being with my horses.
