    Hope your trainer gets better Almond Joy. But that's cool that your other trainer and you work well together and were able to solve some problems! If the new trainer does better work and helps solve problems, I'd say go with the new one!

    I've been trying incorporating some dressage movements into my riding recently and am starting off small with Honey. I can now turn her on a dime just using my legs, the calf of my legs not my feet. I rarely touched my reins the entire time I rode I was so happy! My trainer came down to watch me ride for a bit and told me I shouldn't let Honey get away with turning by herself and changing directions. I laughed and told him what I was doing and he was impressed. I was really happy that I'm able to conceal my leg cues enough that it doesn't look like I'm even cueing her! I'm going to try and start working on flying lead changes and try to do those better. My goal is to be able to completely drive her from my seat and be able to get her more sensitive to my cues so that way all my cues are concealed.

    Almond Joy, I am also a saint.
    I also wanted to say hi to everyone, as this is my first official post on the forum after being a lurker for a long, long time!
    I spent yesterday washing Benbo's tail as he is not very well at the moment (new yard, new super luxury grazing), and if he was Vesuvius, his tail was Pompeii.
    Poor boy. However, he seems to be on the mend today! ^^'

    Is it too late to sneak into this thread? Welllll.. Hayyy everyone! I'm Allison, I own 3 horses, 2 cats and a dog! They mean EVERYTHING to me! My family is currently building a new house and barn, so my horses will be in my backyard! I'm a big procrastinator but I'll try hard to remember to make a thread of barn pics when its finished!

    Ugh.

    Fighting with my mother at the moment.

    She just had THE biggest spack attack at me over my choice to ride pillion on Dad's motorbike and not protest going quick.

    Her reason?

    "It scares me to know you're doing something so dangerous."

    Hypocrite. I RIDE HORSES. She has ENCOURAGED every step of my riding journey including getting an unbroken 2yo Thoroughbred [that was dangerous at the time!] AND including jumping enormous oxers [which is what paralyzed Christopher Reeves - his horse tossed him into a jump & the fall separated his skull from his spine, paralyzing him]. I'm just as **** likely to die every single time I get on a horse as I am to die going fast on a motorbike with a driver {rider?} who knows what he's doing. So we go fast, so what? I enjoy it. I know the risks and I choose to take them anyway.

    She wouldn't complain if I wanted to go skydiving. She wouldn't complain if I wanted to take up shooting. She wouldn't complain if I joined the army. So WHY is going fast on a motorbike such a big deal? I mean seriously, if we crash, the only people we're going to kill is ourselves... [we do not go fast when there are other drivers or riders close to us, if we wipe out we won't injure anyone else] Skydiving is more dangerous, shooting is... not as dangerous, I guess, if you have a clue [I don't]. Joining the army is a choice that could potentially be lethal or permanently maiming, and the mental scars are just as bad as the physical. Plus joining the army, you have to be prepared for the fact that you might have to kill somebody. She'd be cool with that. Her little girl taking someone's life. So long as it was legal and sanctioned by my country, it wouldn't bother her at all to think I might KILL SOMEONE. But God forbid I break the speed limit on a quality, flat, straight, sealed road, with nobody else around...

    Sorry I have been MIA guys! Job/horses/life in general is taking over! It's been a pretty good week though. I didn't get to go to the barrel blowout event because it was postponed to a time when I had to work, but oh well I guess... I have Rodeo Bible Camp coming up on June 26th-30th! Looking forward to that. I unfortunately have to miss a show I was going to ride in on another boarders horse, because it's while I'm gone, but that's okay.

    I earned $43 in tips last Friday! I worked nine hours-two hours overtime because we were swamped allall day.

    I switched trainers due to my previous trainers lack of communication/knowledge about advanced english stuff. Plus my new trainer had an awesome time slot open for me!
