    Thanks GH!

    Can't wait until she's legged up. It's been so long I'd almost forgotten how much fun riding english is. It's been at least 10 years since I've ridden english on any kind of regular basis. Since then once or twice a year for giggles on my old reining mare.

    I'm thinking about letting my star pupil (the sweet, gritty one with the haffie) lease her for 4-H next year. On my farm of course :)

    What a lovely mover! She has some fantastic training on her.

    This definitely calls for a visit to Indiana.

    Thanks equiniphile! Just let me know when you're headed my way :)

    Another good ride last night but the best part, my mom came & rode with me!!!! She stopped riding many years ago because of a bad rotator cuff & plantar fasciatis in her feet. Quite a shame because I could only hope to be half the rider, trainer & horseman that she is.

    She finally had her shoulder fixed & has been doing therapy for both issues. Her therapist suggested riding to get those tendons stretching in her feet. She was in quite a bit of pain trying Missy out, don't know that going english for her first ride in over 10 years was the best idea but it was obvious she enjoyed herself.

    Got my fingers crossed that this is just the first of many rides to come. Though if she does get back into it, I'm going to have to watch my equitation, she'll be on me like flies on manure!

    That's what mums are for

    I'm so glad that she is back in the saddle, I also hope that it is the first of many rides for her.

    Sounds like things are going very well and y'all look awesome! There's nothing like a God's ride especially with someone you love!

    She's still the same sweet girl I brought home.

    I've been riding in jeans & my Justin ropers, my field boots didn't quite make it on my calves. Took them to the saddle shop to get elastic inserts put in and ordered myself some new breeches to ride in at home. Can't wait for both, darn leathers pinch in western gear! Riding without my irons in the meantime, good for me anyway

    Will post new pics in a couple weeks to compare.

    Missy go to do her "job" today. I used her for a lesson and she did great. I had fun too because it was my student with the adorable Haffie mare, I rode Missy for the first 1/2 while she worked on things with her pony & then we switched for the last 1/2. I had a blast riding her pony :) I asked her how it felt riding Missy and she said "She's not rough but she moves big." Wise words from an 11 year old lol!

    I set up a couple of small cross rails and some ground poles and did take her over a few times, she is so push button it isn't funny. She's very honest and I think she will compensate for young riders mistakes. When we switched mounts, I let my student take her over a couple times and she had an electric grin the whole time.

    The old girl is proving to be exactly what I'd hoped she would.

    Definitely needed a good horse day after last night's horrific event at the draft pull.

    Yay, Missy . Sounds to me like you got a heck of a good deal when you picked her up. Those honest horses that take care of young or inexperienced riders are worth more than their weight in diamonds and gold.

    Thanks :) I think I got the deal of the century Jen. I wish she was 10 years younger. Hopefully she'll be like Hondo and still going strong at 29.

    I love the been there, done that reliable mounts. I have a handful of them and they will all be here until the end. Great for lessons, my daughter, my green hubby and are always a great change of pace for me after days full of greenies!
