    @Horse crazy teen:
    Yes!! We own the first season and part one of season two. But they are so hilarious! I never thought that it would be so entertaining - but now my parents have gone out and are trying to find all the seasons!
    If you like movies where there is some action, puzzles, and solving puzzles and stuff - then Macgyver is a really good show also - SEVEN seasons.

    @Gallop On:
    I am sorry to hear that! I hope your leg gets better speedy quick! Beautiful photographs also!

    Oh my gosh... it hurt bad. I admit to screaming bloody murder when the splinted it. I don't really remember how he slipped, I had a plastic bag full of strawberrys that I was riding over to a neighbor and he could of got randomly spooked by it and slipped up, or we could have switched gaits and he got his legs jacked up or he could have just slipped as he is really clumsy. I really don't remember how it happened, but I am thankful for my helmet ;) Oh I plan on riding as soon as I can walk without aid ;) (walker, crutches, etc)

    That's scary, and I thought I was having a bad day, lol. Here's my grand adventure:

    I broke out in hives yesterday: an allergic reaction to who-knows-what. Ended up going to the ER, as I have had anaphylactic (sp?) shock before to an ant bite . Go figure, the hives were significantly lessened by the time we got there. So, mom and I sat there for a minute before deciding to pick up a midnight snack and head home. Of course, the moment we got home, the hives popped up again. We're pretty sure it was because of the heat making them flare. Despite the fact that I had two benedryls (normally one will knock me out all night), I barely got an hour of sleep last night because every time I laid down and got warm, it would flare again, and by the morning, it was significantly worse, even making my nose swell! (THAT is when I started getting weirded out, lol.) So, went to the doctor immediately and he gave me steroids for the next 5 days. At first, it only got worse. They were so bad at one point that a hive wrapped around my entire upper thigh, another one ran the length of my left arm from wrist to shoulder, and I had them above both eyelids! Thankfully, they're pretty much gone now: the only ones still lingering are on my hands and feet. Here's to hoping they're gone tomorrow AND Gallop heals quickly! Sorry for the novel.. I tend to get carried away, lol.

    Oh gosh BarrelBunny ! I hope you fell better and on the note of hives I walk into the barn monday morning to see my friends horse COVERED in them.
    Well apparently one of the lesson kids sneeked her a carrot, which she's allergic to
    Hmmm I guess the sign on the stall door that says CANNOT HAVE CARROTS didnt work

    Thank you! I keep coming in contact with whatever I'm allergic to, so that's not helping very much. When I'm out of the house, the hives go completely away, but at night, they come back. Thankfully, they're small now! We're trying to narrow the possibilities down - right now we're thinking the flea bombs that we set off? No idea!
    Oh no! I hope the horse is okay! I think the same thing goes with the signs at horse shows: do not pet this horse/I bite... The little girl walks up and wants to pet the "pwetty pony," so daddy lifts her up and she gets her fingers bitten.

    Gallop On feel better! I was thinking of you and Rusty today when I was going through the riding critique section and was actually going to ask how your jumping training was going via PM! I'm sure Rusty is enjoying the time off though and he will be ready for you once you are better again! Also, BarrelBunny feel better!

    So, my wonderful black/white paint draft lesson horse left the barn to go back to the sales barn today. She began to get aggressive towards others in the paddocks and pastures for no reason and was getting tired of being a lesson horse. Last tuesday my friend and I rode her bareback and in a halter and lead rope and it was a lot of fun, and then I rode her again in my lesson the next day. We were in the hunt field and she saw the gate open and started to bronc, but I was doing no stirrup work and flew off quickly. I wasn't hurt thankfully, and the trainers caught her and then rode her and she was perfectly fine. So I will miss her bunches and hope someone gets her who understands all of her little quirks. She will make someone an awesome horse.

    Well, I ended up spending 3 weeks with my cousins instead of 1 haha. Which I'm fine with because I had a blast. I bought myself a new saddle. It's a Folis Balanced Ride and really nice! I got it for $250 and they normally sell for around $1200, so STEAL! It's got the full quarter horse bars on it so it can practically fit any horse. It fit my cousin's big Appendix horse and their small Connemara perfectly. And their saddle size is completely different. My cousin said her Connemara has been the most difficult horse to find a saddle that will fit and was shocked the saddle fit.

    I rode english and loved it. I can't wait until I get my own horse so I can ride english more. My cousin told me I look better in an english saddle than a western with like my seat and leg positioning and how I look in the canter and when I post in the trot. So I'm pretty happy about that.

    I rode bareback a lot and that was fun. I hardly ever get to ride bareback. I love riding bareback way better than riding in a saddle.

    Oh, I figured out that while I was there the guy I get lessons from has taught me how to ride the wrong way . There was a ton of stuff I was doing wrong that I had no idea because that was how I was taught. My leg positioning was wrong, mt posting was wrong, hand position with the reins and stuff, how I canter. There was a lot. It was frustrating because this whole time I thought I was doing this stuff right because this was how this guy showed me how to ride. So in the last 3 weeks I've gotten most of the bad habits out of my riding. I'm now going to seek professional lessons. And I trust my cousin that she is showing me how to ride correctly because she was on the Olympic long list for jumping and dressage.

    Thats so cool horse racer! And yuus I love riding bareback even though I rarely have the opportunity too at my barn. But wow how long has this guy been teaching you to ride?

    Anyways so I went up into the mountains with my family this weekend and this was this barn that I would go to there when I was little and I went there yesterday to see what happened to it and the whole place was like collapsing on itself and there was nothing left of the ring and the owners house looked like a hell hole but the horses were clean and well fed and well cared for and that made me sooo happy(: It's cool too though cause each horse has his own stall but the doors are always open and every horse can just walk wherever he wants and do whatever. But yeah and also like five years ago was the last time I went and there was a little black paint foal and I saw him today omg he was beautiful! Okay i'm going to stop talking now, but we should like kik or something? Idk its just I don't have a lot of horse people to talk too and yeah (:

    Well, I went down to see Herbie today and couldn't find him. I talked to his owners and apparently he coliced and died 2 weeks ago while I was gone . He was my best friend in the entire world. I just can't believe he's gone just like that...

    R.I.P Herbie
