Oh, Megan. We're all getting the winter blues, aren't we? :( We're also a bunch of saps, I think. ;) Don't worry, spring is just around the corner. I know it seems forever away, but if you just focus on getting what you can out of what you have, then you'll blink and it'll be here. Besides, we all need this period to whip our horses back into shape for show season. Be glad for that, at least. But I agree with the rest. To ride on trails again! Alas, you're getting the best of my dramatic side, I fear. :)

Dear Journal...

So today at the barn I lunged, and he seemed fine...I had cantered him for about 20 minutes total and he hadn't bucked once or tried to drag me all over the place. So I figured the energy was getting out of his system from the grain. So I put his saddle on and tacked up. I got on and walked half the arena. He tenses up and starts backing. I didn't freak at all, just kinda sat there waiting for him to re-focus, then his front legs left the ground. All I could think was "great...here we go again..." So I let out a growl like yell and he calmed back down...So note to self, even if he seems calm..DO NOT stop lunging until he is completly worked...alright. Lol

Dear Journal..

So today went well. I'm finally getting back into the groove of things. I realized, yes Honor is a thoroughbred. If he didn't have some spaz attacks everynow and then he wouldn't be very true to his breed. So anywho, I lunged for about a good half hour and rode for about 20 minutes because then other riders got there and I have limitations. Lol So I went halter shopping and I bought a new black halter for Honor and it fits. Ill be taking some pictures eventually and Ill post them :)

Megan and Honor

Dear Journal...

I believe I've had somewhat of an awakening with all the time I've had to think. As everyone that reads this and knows me personally knows, My confidence is shot to peices and I would give anything to ride another horse besides my own. But no, that's now how things are going to work, because that would mean giving up on everything I've put into Honor and losing my best friend. So I believe I've come up with an idea...

Yes I am slowly getting back into the groove of things, but this is taking too long and I feel my mind is controling my emotions. If that makes any sense...So this may take a while, but I'm going to give it a try. I'm going to try to forget that anything ever happened. That Honor is the horse that I knew in the summer, fall and early winter, and continue (start over) all the training I have done. Yes this means I may have to put off dressage for yet another year, and canter classes also. But its something I can live with. Honor was in not-so-good condition last year for show season, so Im going to consider that a "practice year" or something along the lines of that. I'm going to take this season seriously (I always have, just now I have to refocus) and figure out what we can really do as a team. I'm going to stick to my Walk/Trot Eq. And Pleasure classes. And Halter of course. Heck, maybe a showmanship class or two, I can train him for that.

Okay, any opinions about this idea of mine? Good? Bad?
