The Missy Progress Journal

As most of you know I got my first non-QH last night. She is a 19 yo 16.3 black Hanoverian mare named Missy. I bought her to add as a mount for my lesson program for my little ones who are getting into english & jumping. They would soon be progressing more than what my little ol' shorty QHs could give them. Here she is!

Had our first "official" ride this morning. I did ride her at their place last night but hopped on her bareback (she was so calm I decided to heck with carrying my saddle from the truck) Saddled her up, she was quiet as could be. She reached for the bit when bridling, love that! Got to use my mounting block for the first time. Didn't work too hard since she's been a serious pasture puffer for awhile.

Did a lot of walking and did get her to extend her walk with my seat, did some shoulder & hip yields, she aced that. Her trot, WOW! She has some serious impulsion. The only effort I had to make was to keep from over-posting. It felt great. I did canter her a couple circles each direction just to feel her out, it was very smooth.

Took a quick mosey through the woods to see how she'd handle it. She wasn't too pleased with the no see ums around her ears, she shook her head a bit. A bonnet may be in order. Other than that she did wonderful. The property line borders a very busy highway, she wasn't bothered in the least by the semis cruising past. We also may have "accidentally" jumped a downed tree...if she was in shape I could have done that all day!

All in all, I am very pleased with her so far. Can't wait to see where we are a few months down the road!

Thanks guys!

My hubby is going to finish up her downsized pasture tonight. She was on 6 acres of lushness alone where I bought her. She's fat, not good for the older girl.

Since it isn't ready I took her for a hand graze this afternoon, it was HOT today. I was over trudging around the pasture in about 10 minutes. I actually managed to get on the behemoth bareback without assistance. Some jumping & grunting was involved but hey, I made it :) I spent a good hour halfway napping on her while she ate happily.

Still need the mounting block with the english saddle, little too old to be doing the splits.
