Ellen and Tess's journal (starting from 20.9.10)

sunday the 20th of september 2010
Today me and tess mucked around in the paddock for a while. I was home alone so i decided to go for a gallop bareback. I had so much fun! Then i went inside to do a bit of drawing and had this strange urge to go bareback again so i did. This time no reins, just a mane. When we were cantering, i felt like nothing could happen to me when i was on her. So I let go of her mane, then put my hands up in the air then on my head. Then this magical moment stopped and suddenly we were at the tree where Tess gets tied up. This was truly a maical moment when me and Tess just 'clicked' and it only happens when your not looking for it. I dont expect it to happend again but i dont care. Just being with my horse is a treasured moment!

The day started as it always does. wake up t 6:30am. Feed tess at 6:37am (exactly, dont ask why it just always seems to be the time i walk out to feed her ) school (arghh!) then i get home at 3:15pm then saddle up. Today we were working on canter leads and on the bit work. With help from next door neighbour :P then we did a bit on the jumping course. Put the jump up and flew over it. Then we played catch with zorro. went for a gallop, unsaddled then a good groom then feed hen go inside and watched blue fire lady. tess was waiting at the fence for me, mum said she was there all day, how cute!

so today i went to the park to the ready made "dressage arena" to do a bit of dressage. I am so happy with how my girl is going. Before we went to the arena, i did a bit of jumping and practising hack class in my paddocks. Saw my friend rylee and she said to me "tess has lumps on her rump" i just said she may have been bitten by somything, i will look at it when i get home. But when i got home i saw that they werent just lumps, but about 10 small cuts. My poor baby! not just that but she also had 3 long deep ones on her stifle. I think it must be the barbed wire, thankfully they were not deep enough to need stitching. So i sprayed them with antiseptic, gave them a clean and chucked her rug on her. Seeing how they are tomorrow, hopefully a little better:/

wow havent written in AGES!! well havent really been up to much with tess. just the usuall. But i put the jumps up to 1.25m yesterday and she FLIES over it and can go higher! not bad for a 13.3 1/2hh pony wouldnt you say? have a pony club jamboree this weekend. Wish me luck! the only thing that would hold me back in the hack and rider classes will be our left canter leads....
