    1/13/13- At the airport :) On my way to Oahu, Hawaii for a little less than 2 weeks. If you're in the area let me know! Or know of any good riding places.

    Maybe you can hook up with RoperChick and Armywife? They're both stationed in the islands and ride...

    Great suggestion!!

    Hopefully they see this thread. I wouldn't want to directly ask them incase they don't want to. That'd be kind of awkward/rude.

    Heck send them a pm an let them know you're around and wanting to ride.....they may be busy but could still tell you a good stable to visit....

    Meeting up with RoperChick. I had her on FB and she saw I was in town :)

    Nah, I don't like the whole direct approach unless I know the person a bit better.

    Didn't meet up with Roperchick, but....

    Made it to DC!!!!!!

    AND SAW SKY!!!!


    So exciting :) He has gotten really squirrely though. I'm talking hollow back and sucking back.. badly. We're working on it though, little by little! I've ridden him twice and each ride is better and better! No spooks, but really tense unfortunately. I hope to make a real positive dent in this now-ingrained habit.

    My friend looking after him has done an AMAZING job with not only his health (he's so nice! Got a very nice topline) but also his level of trust. His canter is a dreamboat on the ground though I haven't ridden it yet. I hope to once he settles his trot down.. I don't want to fight him nor have him overly tense.

    Fabulous inhand work. Really listening to my body and voice commands. Not caring as much about the whip or being out of sight. Still really good with picking up his feet and has gotten so much sharper at his yielding of body parts. He turns on the forehand nicely and is beginning to understand turn of the haunches and leg yielding.

    He counter bends reaaaaally badly though.. and tends to try and wander off of the rail. But we're working on it!! Put polos on him.. I haven't done them in nearly 2 years and they looked great, didn't slide, and they're turquoise like his dressage pad!! He rocks that colour scheme :)

    I promise I'll take pictures and put them up. It's just so darn cold here, lol!

    Oh, waiting to see those photos :) yep, east coast is pretty messy right now. Missed the snow today but everything is covered in ice here.

    Wow... so much has happened!

    First off, Sky has a top-line which has significantly changed how the saddle fits. So... he's getting a new saddle :)

    So we tried saddles out today, and he has a date with the chiropractor this Friday and the farrier hopefully tomorrow so we can get all the boxes ticked and have him good to go!

    He has some muscle atrophy going on via his back :(

    It must be fantastic seeing Sky. Have fun saddle shopping. He's really looking nice in the new pics.
