Went out to see fury im not going to be riding her till i get her feet trimmed up. Soo ii took her out to the round pen for a little fun so she could stretch her legs and play. She bucked for the first time since i've met her and she was tossing her head just having fun. I decided to do a little vocal command trainging shes learning but she has t-rot and woah almost all the way down. She also comes when i say "come here moms!" she came trottin up head high and ears forward. She is in major need of a bath though haha.
she gives great hugs!

Fury and I had our first lesson together today with my friend miranda and her horse noche. Noche was at our trainers for some touch up and a change of scenery as he was in very bad need of one. this was mirandas first time seeing him since he was taken there. He is a completely different horse in a good way calm,tuned in and responsive. I decided to take my lesson with her and fury decided she wanted to show off the whole time and was constintly trying to race noche it was really funny cept the fact that i was trying to get her to do a collected canter haha. We also practiced going around a trashcan(barrel) and fury ducked away a couple times but soon caught on and made an AMAZING turn on our last run i was very proud. Then she decided she was proud also and wanted to prance the entire rest of our ride haha.

Wells today i had a lesson but we decided not to use my trainers arena and instead ride to the ranch and use the bigger arena. It took us about 30 mins to get there with fury being a energizer bunny the entire time and wanting to no stop trot/prance. Noche was bein his charming self calmed fury down a bit(they are butt buddies now xD). So when we got to the ranch we went and saw the baby that i havent seen since she was itty bitty at about 7month (shes a 1 yr old chesnut pure bred arabian filly named missfire) shes gorgeous! We then headed over to the arena....worked on transitions then went to poles ran that 2 times each then back to some transitions on the rail then over to speed barrels 2 times each then back on the rail for more transitions and slow work then over to single stake 2 times each. Fury did amazingly and showed off her amazing turns and for a newbie with no priar gymkhana training shes got some good ones. she immediatly took to the courses and loved it. We finished up and headed back took us about 40 mins to get back since we walked more then on the way there. All and all today was a great day! fury improved amazingly on her transitions and halts and noche was bein a good boy and miranda and i had some bonding time that we havent had in awhile

Got back from my dads today. i was gone for two weeks so my mom had furys feet done on june 23 wednesday. I got new reins for her and also got my bell boots and ordered a indian hackamore to see if she will work better in that. I went out to see her today and the farrier had sid shes losing some weight so we either need to get her teeth checked,worm her again or get her on a good grain. He also said she was a dream to trim (yay! ) haha. Uhmm oh i also hoped on her bareback today for a few minutes since it was hot nd i didnt wanan over work her just get her out to stretch a bit. She was awome :].
well here are a few pics of her from 2 weeks ago til today with her new reins

So its been awhile but heres new info
July 27,2010
Went out to work fury today.. Did some transitions walk trot canter woah. Then i found some poles to start her out on trot poles and hurry scurry(gymkhana event).At first she avoided them like it would eat her, so i slapped on her lead rope and trotted her in hand over them then sent her in a circle around me. She soon caught on and was doing beautifully . dropping her head and really using her hind end. So i hoped on bareback and did some round bareback (just trotting)
pics soon
