Well I havent ridden her for about a week coz I've had cold among other things.........

So I went to ride her Friday and she was alright. We went for a trail ride over to my place. She was a bit spooky and silly. What was really funny we were walking along when she suddenly stopped and peed.........and peed...........and peed..............*sigh*

But anyway we passed my crushes 4WD so I'm like looking around trying to spot him. No sign.......even went back the same way and waited in the shade around the corner.......still no sign......its like NOOOOOO I want to see him.........

Anyway I rode yesterday. I had all these plans for jumping then I went.....Oh stuff it its such a nice day. So I went for another trail ride. She was really weird with the bridge that had water rushing underneath which was normal but once we got out on the trail she was really.......nervy?? Like she'd stop and stare into the distance....

Anyway I met up with these women riding their horses.....all ex-racehorses......grrrrrrrr

So there was alot of bucking, prancing and spooking. But Dana plodded along totally unaware of the pshycotics going beserk. But they were all fat and it made Dana look really good.......hehe

Oh well......

Feedback anyone??

Ok so its been awhile since I posted but I went to see her on Sunday last week and I did jumping without Crackrider, followed the same routine and everything.

She refused to go over the trotting poles or even jump!!!! I was sooooooooo ticked off!!!!

So in the end I settled for making her walk over a log and praised her heaps.

But I was sooooo annoyed coz she was doing so well too. So Im gona eliminate poles and work on basics.........whatever that's supposed to mean........

Well I went to ride Dana yesterday, it being Easter Friday and NO SCHOOL for two weeks!!!! And she was very very cheeky!!!

Like she was playing around stealing my hat then I bent over to clean one of her front hooves out while her owner was talking to me and she grabbed the back of my undies and pulled!!!!


But after that she sought of behaved out on the ride. We went for a long trot and she was pretty good.

Well Im sorta a bit cranky because when I was out riding last we were crossing someones drive and this old fart in his ***** toyota yaris comes screeching towards us while we were half across his concrete drive. Scares poor Dana who slips (thank heavens she's not shod) and nearly comes down on her knees. What ticked me off the most was the old Fart didnt even stop to ask if we were alright just honks his horn and demands we shift it. Natrually I gave him the finger.......

Anyway we get home and Vic (Dana's owner) goes "Is she lame?"


So anyway its about a week off for Dana!

Grrrrrr Dana's got two weeks off and her owner has had the vet out (major first!!!) and the vet gave her some antibiotics......whatever the heck antibiotics have got to do with lameness dunno. If you do know please post me.......

I've been over a few times and she's also been in season so she's been doubly cheeky and cranky........grrrrr

Like she normally dosnt try to bite me but she only missed me the otherday but still succeded in bashing my hand into the fence....

Also me and Crackrider gave her a really good bath and she looked all sparkly and white until the next day when I came she had rolled.........NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Well Dana's on the mend. I've been over a few times after the last post and i've started lunging her again. Lightly. Ofcourse.

She was a bit silly yesterday when I was lunging. Like she bobbed her head a few times like she's saying "Im thinking about bucking.." then like five mins later she just randomly bucks then turns and rears/ lashes out with her front legs then happily goes back to trotting.........

Too much energy from that new protein mix she's getting I think even though she's not getting as much as Delta whose pregnant.....

Well I rode Dana on Friday but would you believe it was raining?

But I still rode her. I walked around the arena practicing straightness and trying to do a turn on the forehand. Sort of worked....except arnt the front feet supposed to stay rooted in the spot and the tail end move?? Oh well......

Then I rode her on Saturday. It was a nice day so I took her out and her owners sheepdog Stone, followed.

Now Dana and Stone and Stone's girlfreind Deana (yes including Delta they are all names starting with D)....Dont really like each other. I've been lunging Dana and they try to herd her and eventually she snaps and rears up and tramples them with the front end and boots them out the back.

So as soon as I saw Stone I thought drats!! So Dana's going along getting cranky, baring her teeth. We get up past the cemetary like half a kilometer from home and she snapped.

She lept up in the air as Stone shot behind her and BUCKED !!!!

Even more surprising is that I stayed onboard!!!!

Didnt even loose a stirrup!!

Then the gaurd dogs at the areodrome spotted Stone and the gaurd dog's got puppies so this psycho bitch comes out and chases Stone all the way home.

The rest of the ride was pretty uneventful except I wana ask you guys something (yes I know your out there reading my blog)

I was riding Dana back and she was all egaer beaver to get home when suddenly she hits the skids. And this horsebox come flying out of nowhere like a bat outa hell and it was toeing a two horse float with THREE horses in it, young TB 2 or 3 year olds, who looked tottaly petrified. One squealed out to Dana and Dana replied and I had a heck of a time holding her down coz she was gona chase them down the street.

Now is that suss or what??

Well I've ridden Dana a few times since my last post and she's been alright. Because her hooves have grown they've started to chip a bit. So I might get some stuff to put on them but anyway I rode her yesterday and it was such a nice eveining and I got up her and made her trot a fair bit which she needs because she needs the excersise.

I went to this tack party and got some horsy ear mufflers for Dana (only because they were give aways) anyway they look like a jesters hat and I put them on nd they look SERIOUSLY weird.

Must take picture
