I think it is officially summer for most people. We got out of school Tuesday, and camp starts next week. The days are long and hot, and I got the first serious sunburn of the year! I call it "Lobster Tan". Ow.
Anyways, what are you plans and goals for this summer? Horsewise or otherwise!
Personally, I have several. Of course, there is Crickett, Tiara's colt, to be working with everyday, taking on trail rides, doing things with, ect. Then Tiara is going into a serious fitness program. She is getting very out of shape. We want to do some fun gaming this year, like at the 4-H county show. Every other year, we have gone in the hunt seat division, but, everyone knows that a Haflinger is not a hunt-type horse. We've never done very good, or even had a lot of fun, so this year, we're doing gaming and driving.
I'll be doing more jumping with my mom's horse. We'll be going to more shows this year, and pretty soon Crickett and Tiara can come along. My friend will be working with her new horse.
I'll be taking weekly lessons, and might be able to ride a neighbor's green paint horse a few times. I am hoping to possibly going to do some low level starting events near the fall, and maybe some long distance rides.
So, basically just a summer full of horses. Wonderful!
