I've got to get the other two out here so we can ride together ... I think Gunnie will be more confident and less spooky with the other two around. We'll be ok .... or we're sending him up to ya'll!

There is no more StateLine Tack in TX! I just looked it up. Bummer! What about that new tack store in Montgomery? Anyone go to that one yet? I miss that big store in Hockley. That was the closest 'super store tack outlet' we had around here.

TG, are any of yours good to go for riding in the piney woods yet? We could think about bringing horses to the meet and greet this way if anyone felt up to it - even revisit the idea of doing a little campout for the weekend in the piney woods - I don't know of anything exciting going on down here in the fall - no big horse shows that I know of.........we might have to be our own entertainment. Add some green horses to the mix and it just might be that.

It was so pretty when I got home from work, saddled Lil up, rode a couple hrs. Came across a few things she hasn't seen in her life of racing and hunter/jumper stables. A monterous big black metal pumping unit going up and down, then to add insult to injury. a long horn steer, in a pasture with TWO, yes TWO LLAMAS! lol she did well, just stopped dead in her tracks, looked at them, snorted, quivered, snorted.. then started on when I told her to. Talked to 2 different patients who happened to be driving by... out in the country, can't go anywhere without seeing them! lol

CC, after this weekend, I am convinced we can definitely provide our own entertainment! I would love to do a little camp out:)

I am in the slow boat when it comes to the technical learning curve. I also know way more than I want about internet issues. I thought making the switch to uverse would cure all NOT.

He was a huge brat ... we saddled, did ground worked, lunged him (sorta), and then DH got on to just sit in him for a bit. We repeated in the afternoon .. but walked him around with DH in the saddle.. turning, stopping backing. As soon as I walked away he started tossing the head and acting stupid, so I lead him around some more.

I don't want to get hurt, but I *AM* the more experienced rider ... and guess I should just start riding his butt ..ugh. I have two others I'd rather ride ......

I know it's frustrating. Last year I almost gave up on my mare but decided groundwork and respect is what she needed to get and give. It took us a while but it was worth it. She can still be b*****y but is no longer disrespectful! I'm sure someone more skilled than i could have gotten there faster but I was determined.
