We're checking out the stables... tomorrow!

I honestly wasn't expecting to see my fave horses for a couple more weeks, but my Dad said (kind of out of the blue) that if I wanted to, we could check it out tomorrow!

I'm exited. But I don't think I'll bring my camera this time. I will next time though. :)

This time, we're going to be figuring out what I'm going to be doing. Whether it be lessons *gag* (I'm sick and tired of lessons) or whether I could go out, and kind of have a job there. I'd prefer the job over anything else. :)

That's exciting! I wish we had a lesson stable somewhere around here! All we have is the Girl Scout camp, and I don't get paid for working there.


Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

Congrats! I would take lessons if that was the only way I could work with horses!

I'm so thrilled. We went and checked it out. They've fixed up a lot of things, and they're even making and putting up some jumps. He said that since I already know how to ride, I'd be riding one of the more difficult horses, probably Avalanche, a gray Thoroughbred stallion that I've always admired (he might have been gelded since I was last there, but I hope not... :P). I'm going out tomorrow morning around nine, and figuring things out, like which horse(s) I'll work with, and so on. I hope I can do some real things with them. :)

I think one of the big reasons he was so eager is because there are only three, four, and MAYBE five people trying to exercize, care for, train, and overall be around around forty to fifty horses. Half of them are under the age of 5, and of the rest, half of those are under the age of 10.

So I hope I'll be able to help out some by working some of the horses that aren't in the beginner's lesson class, some of the horses that need a more experienced rider.
