So I cancelled my lease of Brewer a few days ago, meaning my lease is over at the end of August, but now his owner and I are concerned about him being sick. So that's not good.

Here goes the new horse search.
Myla - 5 yo 16hh red bay TB mare. Jumping 2'3 and still learning. Doesn't wear shoes. May not be able to wait until September.
Bert - 7 yo 16.2hh bay TB gelding. Jumping 3'6-3'. Owner is going off to college MAY require long term lease
Rain - 8 yo 15.3 bay AngloArab Mare. Jumping 3'. May be too small for me.

So. I don't know why I was getting all excited/stressed about this. I haven't even talked to my trainer or barn owner. I can totally chill till then. :)

So! Here is an update on my horsey life.

I had another show in the same series as the last disastrous one. Same nine people, but I rode a horse I used to ride before I got Brewer, Frisk, and we got reserve champion! Yay!

Then, a few days later, I rode Brewer out in the field with a halter and leadrope and bareback. It was so much fun! I had no idea!

And now, I have a new horse that I will take care of for my friend, Bailey. He is great, I am going to go ride him this weekend!

Yay!

hi! Heres an update to my journal haha
So I have just signed up for Show Team at my barn and am sooo excited. But now I am looking for lease a horse that I can show, since Bailey's owner won't let me show him. But I'll keep riding him, and I've been riding Brewer too.

I've been hard-core looking for a horse, and I've got some leads. My trainer and I are going to "roadtrip" to go look at some of the ones I've found, and I am super excited.

Ughh the show with Bailey today was no good. We managed to get a first in the Walk/Trot class (don't ask me how) with me half-halting every step. However, when it came time to canter, he went nuts. I don't know why. He would take off on the wrong lead and practically gallop around. Somehow, I managed to scrape a fifth. Next was the jump class. Omg I have never hauled harder on a horses mouth in my entire life, and we still got THREES!!!! On a five stride line! It was crazy I was really mad. Not a happy camper. I got to go to the championship class, and rode a horse named Frisk I used to ride a lot, but we didnt get Champ or Reserve. Oh well. And next week is another show with Bailey... we'll see how that goes.

So I went to go look at a horse today, named Gus. He isn't for me but luckily I am going to look at three (maybe more) more tomorrow! The lady we are talking to is trying to find some places for some of the Johns Hopkins Equestrian Team horses I think. :)
