Okay this thread is going to have little bit of everything in it, frustration, excitement and everything in between.
First of I never thought I wuld be in college and own a amazing taleneted horse. Both huge things for me, Ollie is not my first horse but he is the horse I have bonded to the most over such a short period of time. Mostly likely due to all that has happend in the short while (less then a year) I wouldnt take back having him gievn to me even if I could see what I rough start we would get out of your relationship and working partnership togther. This has made us stronger, we learned so much about each other and now we have both held eachother up and feel better when down and out. I am sure evryone of you guys know just what I am talking about, its hard not to have such a strong lovely bond with your best friend :)
I have to say though more and more do I look forward to summer!! Oliver will very shortly be moved to have 24/7 pasture iwth a run in shed next to a pretty chestnut TB mare
He will become so much happier and his body will finish its full healing proccess and get as healthy as he can! Iiwll also be out of classes and spending 5 days a week with him cause he will be so much closer!!
I will also be gaining back my wonderful old trainer I had way back when who I adore! I am so excited to see where this summer leads us in all the different ways!
I have been able to ride a little bit more and so I am very happy! I have signed up for a schooling show on the 12th of May to get him up the horse park and see what he thinks of a show, I have entered him in easy classes and some jumping to make it fun for him! I cant wait to ride in that very small show (pretty much is like riding with all your friends haha)
But anywho we are getting over the hump of a frustrating winter and moving on from some bad experainces with the trainer I had and looking forward to the near future.
Its amazing how much both of us are so much more relaxed and working together since we left my trainer I started with when i got Ollie. It like so peaceful and he is right there nad still very much trying for me nad coming through. Just yesteday did I get the MOST AMAZING BEST (so far) working medium trot out of him, he was searching for the contact and really powering up through him hind end. WHen he moves correctlya nd tries so hard its the most amazing feeling in the world! The uphill solid trot was the highlight of my week! Im riding more nad more each week and my body is getting more nad more used to it again.
Anyways thanks for reading! Heres to a new better future!!!!!
