    Sounds like you have a blast!! You seem so comfortable around horses, I wish when I had friends over they were interested! Keep going its nice to see the pure enjoyment of riding with none of the competetiveness. :) thanks for making me smile.

    Aww thanks, I love riding and just hanging with horses. I could spend all day just lying in a paddock if I know that there is a horse here. I even clean out my friends float, make the feeds and set up our jumping courses :)

    Rode on 30th on one of my best friends Olivias Horse. This is the second time I have ridden him and he is a very fast moving horse and is very responsive. He has a medium canter which is easy to go with and I had fun walking, trotting and then got into a canter. He is a really good horse and I loved being able to ride him <3

    Hey, I rode today I have only on picture at the moment but will be uploading a video to my youtube channel soon. I had heaps of fun, learning how to instruct someone and see how to pick up on there mistakes. It was fun. I made a jumping course and got to actually sound like a pro. I also go to ride, I worked on my leg work and trotted, and worked on my canter :) had heaps of fun and can't wait to do it again.

    Well. There is always a first time for everything, which was a big lesson I learnt today. I fell of Chinga for the first time. Well okay, I will start at the beginning of the day. We decided to create a show jumping course because I may have a comp on the 17-09-11. Maddie rode first and when it was my turn I got to the first jump and chinga decided because I didnt put a lot of leg on he would dump me, so I now have a very sore bum and can't walk. But other wise I got to ride another horse called jazz and she allowed me to trot, jump and a little canter. I gave me my confidence and made me happy. I also rode chinga again, after Maddie got thrown into a tree. He was in a very forward mood and we had to work him alot before he calmed down. So after lunging him, I got on and just walked and trotted him. It was good. I felt that I can't be scared of something that I contributed to. It was a good feeling being able to notice what I did wrong and how to fix it. I now know I need more leg and need to watch my position before a jump... Anyways I had an amazing day and can't wait to do it again. Video of me falling and riding will be up soon. Sorry I lost the other video so I can't upload the one of me riding from the other day :( xxoo

    Hey, today I went to the paddock with maddie and had alot of fun. We cleaned out her float, fed her pony (chinga) and ate alot of junk food. We were waiting for her farrier to come for 1 and a half hours until we rang her mum and we were told he cut his finger of. So we saddled chinga up and just did some light work on him. She got on and took him over some jumps and let me tell you he was amazing. We was flying over everything and was even doing spreads. (measurements arent certified yet ) She worked him abit and then let me on him. I was working on my postion more than the aspect of going faster. I was trotting over small ( not even 40cm) jumps and working on releasing and giving him his head. I then cantered around a bit and had some fun just really sitting on him. I then let maddie get back on and she did some dressage, he wasnt exactly in the mode, but he had fun anyways. I love watching maddie ride. She is an inspiration to me and she really showed me everything I know. I have learnt how to ride from a past friend and all she did was threaten and yell at me. Maddie showed me its not all about wining a contest, but more about completing your goal and having fun. I love riding. I love horses. I love my friends. And I love my life.
    P.S She inspired me to write a book. hope it goes well.
