So today we went to look at horses, the first guy was quite a cutie, but he was a bit too small and too green for me. But he was such a good boy for being only 4 and off the track since November with December, January and a lot of February off. My trainer might buy him for the lesson program at my barn.
Hi! Sooo I have the most ridiculous horse schedule this year, so I am going to keep up with this journal atleast for my own sake, so I can figure out what's going on. I am riding at four barns this year.
A: My schools eq team barn, where we just moved and I am super excited because its a zillion times better than our old barn.
B: The barn I've been riding at my whole career pretty much
C: The new, super fancy barn near my school that I am trying out for a few weeks
D: My friend's barn, I am half leasing her horse and showing her in jumpers this fall!
SOOO. During the huge rainstorm yesterday my car decided to go for a swim and hang out in two feet of water. Therefore, my car got towed today to attempt to get fixed. Therefore I can't ride in forever and I am depressed.
Hopefully I can still ride tomorrow, because my friend who's horse I am leasing can give me a ride, and Monday is when Eq Team lessons start.
So its just two C barn lessons and a B barn lesson that I am missing. But it still bums me out.
So my horse life right now is NUTS! I just went to my first ever jumper show today with my friend from school, and I am like fake-leasing her horse. I just pay her per ride, and she gives me jumper coaching and takes me to shows all for free. I got in trouble with her today for riding my jumper courses like a hunter haha, my first round I got 50 seconds and the winner got 37. Whoops!
I am also taking hunter lessons at two barns and eq lessons with my school team. So basically I am getting instruction and show experience in all three rings, which I think will be soooo good for my riding over all.
Tomorrow I have my first Barn C lesson, now that I have my car back. Wednesday I have my second Barn A lesson with our new school team coach, and I am also flatting my friend's jumper that I showed today. Friday I think I am jumping her and I also have my Barn B lesson. Yay horses every day of the week!
