    Good Monday morning y'all. Had a great day yyesterday. Got both my ponies roda and/or worked and the did great:)
    We helped the barn owner load up the longhorn bull so now we don't have to worry about the kids in the pasture or looking over our shoulders wondering if he's going to wanna play or not!
    Dh actually rode his horse with a new correction bit last night and she did well too. Will see how she does in the roping pen on Tuesday. Hopefully he won't have to use it long.

    Thanks DBA! I think that will help a bunch. Yes, she can't have dairy and meat at the same time - so worst case scenario we have to wait a few hours between eating and having ice cream.

    Me and the youngest had a great time last night. A nice warm wind was blowing around 8 pm so I saddled up my big gray foxtrotter, strapped the princess helmet on my 3.5 yr old, and we climbed up and went for a ride. Some flies, but no mosquitoes. She really enjoys riding the horses and has to hold the reins the entire time. I'm waiting (in great anticipation and with butterflies) for the day she tells me I can't get on b/c she wants to ride by herself. I haven't pushed her to ride by herself too much even just on the lead line - I'm waiting for her to give me signs she's ready.

    Then I wonder which horse she will steal from me? LOL!

    I thought I'd finally get around to answering this question..

    I have a 17 year old Arabian mare, Charm. The most beautiful horse in the world, and my heart.

    Last year I bought two young (2 and 3 at the time) little foundation QH's and DH is brand new to horses.

    He's really JUST in the last couple of months buckled down and started working his gelding, Gunnie, and is seeing real progress.

    Saturday when we were riding he said his horse was making him proud. I said that HE was making ME proud. He said "This is very rewarding" ...

    I think he's hooked.

    We just ride. We work and "play" in the round pen and surrounding 5 acres we own ... and then we just take off and do little late evening neighborhood rides.

    Our goal is to get the two gelding ready, purchase a trailer, and do some trail rides and overnight trailrides, etc.

    We're 50 so no hard riding for us!
