I hear that..they all got turned out today, so hopefully she's better, haha.

We're moving on the 31st of this month..gonna probably take the day off and ride her over since I can't justify paying someone to trailer her 3-4 miles on back roads, haha.

Well, I moved Alahna on Wednesday and really couldn't complain about her. She had to stop and stare at the first car we came across and then she was just fine with all the others, even a 350 hauling a 40' trailer and a farm tractor with a round bale on the front of it! She did spook once at seemingly nothing while I was waving to said farmers on the opposite side of the road, in which she cleared a lane and a half of road in a sideways leap xD The farmer and his hay guy laughed as they waved back, she didn't give any sort of warning, haha. I then accidently stuck her front end in a ditch on the side of the road with a snowdrift all the way up to her chest. Which, she turned her head and gave me a look of "really?" And stood and waited until I asked her to back out of it, haha. I couldn't be more proud of that, honestly. I scared myself more than it did her!

She got rather antsy after we made the next bend and we pranced for awhile. We made another bend and went down a large hill and I let her run up the hill on the other side. We ran almost a quarter mile on that road..some cantering, some after she bolted while we had a beautiful canter. BUT, during that bolt, I found my seat. Ever since my accident I've had a hard time staying IN the saddle..Well, my ass didn't move not an inch! I'm really happy about that, now I'm just hoping I can keep it on a circle, lol.

Regardless of that, we made it there in one piece and she's seemed to settle in nicely. She refused to drink all wednesday, but she did drink throughout the night after I left. It's almost like she's been there forever when I'm walking her around. She's really looking at all the other horses and wants to go meet them..but the three she's met so far she doesn't seem to like, lol. I'm hoping she gets along with a retired eventing gelding, Dar, since he's currently pastured alone and it's the closest/smallest pasture, haha. Plus, it has a run-in where the others don't.

Anywho, I'll start updating our training again since I'll be there almost daily :p

SHE LOPED CIRCLES!!!
That's all for now..lol. She's a bolter at the canter, and she loped today and I didn't even have to touch her face, only neck reined to keep her on the circle. Granted, it wasn't the best circle, but it wasn't even half of the arena. Not to mention the crow hops and bucks going into it (soo wish I would've gotten the one on camera, it was HUGE and I stuck to the saddle just fine!)

I'm getting a video of some of it sent to me, so I'll be uploading it to youtube and plaster it everywhere, haha.

I'm really excited..I had THE worst day today that I've had in awhile, I was about ready to quit my job and give up..and she made my day. Granted, it was almost 7pm by that time, but it's all good now. I'm not ready to give up on anything.(:
