    Well getting my mom to ride once must have reignited her horse itch. She called this morning and wanted to know my schedule and we put her on the books to ride with me 4 days a week!!!!!

    It probably seems silly to be so excited to spend time with one's mother but this is a great opportunity for me. She too was a trainer but due to injury stopped riding. She had 5 mentors when she was learning, 4 of whom are hall of fame inductees in the NRHA and/or AQHA. I've only scratched the surface of her knowledge and I am beyond excited to dig for more!

    Keep your fingers crossed for me that she can ride pain free & keep it up!

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Fingers, toes, and every other crossable body part is crossed that she can keep riding. That's wonderful that she is wanting to get back into it .

    Thanks! I'm optimistic. I doubt she'll ever start colts again but I'd love to see her do some finishing work.

    I'm going to have to be on my game for sure now, she's the ultimate critic.

    Since this is the Missy progress thread...went for an hour trail ride in the woods yesterday with my daughter. Morgan (she's 6) rode Jana & I rode Missy. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and the old ladies were very well behaved.

    Just finished riding with my mom

    She wanted to ride english but on Jana, so I rode Missy bareback. My lovely mother says "I haven't seen you put her over a jump yet. Let me set a couple up for you." Ummm...ok...haven't jumped bareback in a good 10 years or better. She told me "That's how you learned, suck it up." Told you she was a meanie

    So she sets me up 2 straight rails @ 2'6". I didn't fall off! Missy is so smooth & relaxed, I ended up having so much fun we went over the set a few times. Only complaint, her high withers equals ouchy hoo-ha!

    As I was reading this post I was like that has to hurt.

    It did, MHS but it was a lot of fun. Hadn't jumped bareback since I was a teenager, hurting or not I'm just happy I didn't eat dirt

    Looks like this is a MH-riding-English progress thread just as much as Missy's

    It's great to hear you've found such a good horse. She sounds like a darling.

    Well today the old girl was feeling her wheaties! I don't know if it was the nice cool weather & today's rain or getting more fit but she was very forward. No being stupid just a livewire. It's been a long time since I had to really work & ride like that. Fun for both of us!

    Glad you're having fun with her

    The old girl is doing great! She's been in consistent work 5 or 6 days a week, she's not lost any weight but has tucked her belly a smidge :) It's been dreary & rainy so we've been stuck doing boring flat work in the indoor :( Hope to have some decent weather this weekend so we can get outside and get some updated pics!
