Seeing as this is my journal and he knows me to be an open person and encourages that, I feel better sharing vague details because I feel much better not keeping my emotions bottled up.

I would never do anything to jeopardize the friendship between me or him, or tarnish my reputation. I simply am a human being with feelings who doesn't always know what to do with them.

This way people are free to offer advice, and not judgement.

So I am definitely feeling much better! Off of my antibiotics, no more violent shivering or much nausea.

I did throw up yesterday which was kind of scary :( Thankfully I ducked out of a meeting when I felt poorly.

But things are pretty good with Lovely Man and I. Hanging out, spending time together.. he's been very busy and I was sick so not AS much but when we do see each other we give each other a friendly hug.

Sky is doing well! Here is Mr. Handsome himself


Haven't ridden in weeks... going crazy lol

I have a few trips planned out, and gave notice at work. Though today I got a very poor review which really took the wind out of my sails. Everyone here knows I work super hard, go above and beyond... and yet... the one person that reviews me decides not to give me the credit I earned.

Makes me upset, but trying not to focus on it

Oh and I should mention, that creepy jerky guy moved away (hooray!) but I still haven't told Lovely Man what happened. I feel I should just let it die and enjoy the time left I have in New Zealand with him :)

I cantered on a steep bank on a horse I had only just met!

His name is Raz, and he's amazing. Apparently purebred Lipizanner, I could sit his trot, post with ease, and his canter was so lovely and smooth but HUGE (not deep, just wide)

It's been so long since I've been in the saddle, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to go again!

Here he is, I'm grooming rockin' my brand new gift breeches! (ignore the stupid facial expression)

We rode through NZ jungle, through a strong river, through trees and meadows, hills and countryside. It was gorgeous, and I wish I had more photos to share with you!

It was a ton of fun. We actually got to RIDE instead of be nose-to-tail. We trotted, and had a nice canter too :)

~~

Lovely Man and I are doing great, not going to go into too much detail. But let's just say that I enjoy every moment spent with him, and he continues to amaze me. He's such a wonderful person, with such humor and just tons of fun.

I've invited him and others along to a trail ride, we'll see if he accepts. Not that I force anyone into my world of horses, but figured it'd be a nice thing to extend an invite out.

The bank was similar to the part on the far top right which continued for quite a large stretch (it was about 5 full minutes of cantering huge lol)

What a fun day riding! Raz is simply stunning! I can't help but think the guy in your avatar, however, is the true blue, 'lovely man of your dreams', and am so looking forward to the reunion for the two of you :)

Yes, Sky certainly is the man on my moon, per say. He completely has me smitten and I'm so excited to return to him!!! I'm hoping to have someone record the whole process :)

Got a lesson today on ChaCha!! So happy about that.

I finally had consistent contact, stretching, impulsion.. it was beautiful. We did shortening and lengthening in walk and trot via diagonal figure eights and down the rail, incorporating circles of different diameters.

Canter.. she was a little minx so we only focused on keeping her listening to me and bending to the inside. She kept trying to gallop. I was not pleased. But my arms DID stay fluid and my hands did not rise! So that's an improvement.

Did serpentines with perfect bend through the body, and she was reaching and stretching forward and down about 80% of the ride, all round through her back.. it was awesome.

Probably my best ride ever in the step of Dressage. I couldn't stop smiling.
