It depends on her. I am ordering her new bit soon, and once we get those cues down we'll start working on it. I'm hoping she'll be rideable, as in knows walk, trot, canter, stop, and back-up well, by the spring. But it all depends on how she's taking things and if I feel she is ready to progress. I'm also gonna have the vet take some X-rays of her to see if she is physically able to begin working.

I went to the barn Sunday and yesterday, had to take some more feed. I've been upping Sunny's rations since winter is setting in. We just covered the windows and are about to refresh the stalls. Winter. -sigh- Sunny is already a giant poof. She got her winter coat so fast. I've been doing a lot of bit work lately, just letting her mouth it and such some more. I'd say she's mostly comfortable with it by now. A few more sessions and we'll probably start working on the cues. I can't wait until the spring when we start the actual "training". I'm gonna go tomorrow and probably do some bit work, maybe some lunging. Love my little girl.

I think it's so cool that you are doing her training yourself. How did you learn all that?

Thanks. I wouldn't say I necessarily "learned" it. I've just done lots of work with horses and thought I'd give training a try. In all seriousness, I observed trainers and such. And ofcourse my own personal experiences. This is my first time training, and it's pretty stressful at times. Actually, I just got a one-in-a-lifetime-chance for someone to put two weeks on Sunny for free, and I might accept it.

Have I ever mentioned that Sunny is the most accident prone horse in the world? Well, a few weeks ago my mom, brother, and I went on a trail ride, which meant that Sunny was left on the property alone. My options were to either leave her in her stall, or the paddock next to the barn. I didn't want her in her stall because I didn't want her to try to jump it, or somehow get out and get hurt on the equipment in the barn. So I put her in the paddock, which is partially fenced with barbed wire (it's a temporary pen, like where the horses are kept when the vet or farrier is coming, or if the pasture gate has to be kept open for something). So along we went on our ride. About and hour and a half later we got back, and when we got off my brother said, "What's wrong with Sunny's nose?" So I went to go look. Not only does she have barbed wire cuts along her nose, but also on her chest. -sigh- So those got cleaned, and thankfully healed up nicely. Yesterday I went to the barn and, guess what? She's got a huge chunk of fur missing from above her left eye. I swear, by the time she gets into the show ring she's gonna be ugly. She better be glad I love her.
