Day #3 of Spring Classic.. :)

Let me personally be a lesson to evryone in the entire world right now who rides horses. EAT WHEN YOU RIDE. Today, all I had up until 1:00 o'clock was a donut. Yeah, no -_-' Well, for Poles I got 22.3 (1 tenth of a second away from AAA+!!) and for the next three events I was a hot mess. Finally ate and everything was hunky dorey :) I had had no energy and lost focus. Moonie gets an A today for simply putting up with me; I get an F! I'm starting to get really tired, and fell asleep on the car ride home. Tomorrow is my last day to show everyone what we're made of!!

Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

Agreed! I always forget to eat and then I get soo dizzy and feel terrible. So I bring a few apples and share them with Sky

Great job on your show!!

Day #4 of Spring Classic

Okay, well I am exhausted, sunburnt, but I am a very, very happy girl! Moonie and I ROCKED our last day of our oober long horse show :) So proud of my mare. She did amazing. Out of 16 consistent riders (Teens and adults), Moonie and I got 4th. 2nd and 3rd tied, and most of those people have been riding their horses for years!! Bottom line is, I coudn't be more proud, and we definetly gave our competition something to think about:)

So tired it isn't even funny. The only reason I went to school today is because I had finals, and only four (now three) more days of school left, LOL. I took a nap instead of going to go see Moonie, which makes me feel like a bad mommy :( I'll probably manage to persuade someone to take me up there tomorrow, though, so yay :) Still soo tired. I intend on falling asleep at 8, haha. Hope everyone had a good weekend!! :)

Grr.. No Moonie.. Mom worked late I get out of school tomorrow at 1 o'clock, so mom is taking me over at 2. At least that is set in stone I'll probably walk around bareback, grrom, and clean her corral. Finished finals, and there are only 2 more days of school!!

FINALLY went to go see the mare today :) She was good, and even got excited to see me (Ears pricked, head towards me, walking quickly towards the gate to her corral)! I dumped and cleaned out her water bucket, cleaned her stall and lunged :) She tried flat out running at first because I gave her a break this week after her 4-day show, and was a little restless, but was fine after that :) I attatched a vid of her below trotting and loping, because, well, I thought I would show you guys what her gaits are like, LOL.



Yeah.. Sorry the quality is so crappy, haha.

I have lessons tonight, so I'll update that in a few hours or so, but my grandpa took pictures of the show this last weekend, and I'd thought I'd share :) P.S., sorry they aren't the best quality, LOL! :P

Blech. Lessons were pretty unproductive.. My trainer was busy moving horses and what not so not much happened. Moonie was moved to a corral with a hay feeder so she doesn't have to eat off a mat anymore, so that's a plus. But other than that, not much happened. Last day of school was today!

Hmm.. I just realized that Moonie and my's life is going to be pretty uneventful until about father's day (I have a show.. And my last 1-day show was on Mother's day. Who does that?!) Anyway, we went up to the ranch to feed and water. I groomed Moonie and cleaned her stall, so everything is all tidy :) I have practice tomorrow, and am going to go live/visit with my dad for the rest of the month tomorrow :)

P.S. I am currently watching my 1 year old sister pay with an iPad.. -_- LOL
