Dear journal,
Because of our orchestra's holiday concert, I was only out to the barn once this week, for lessons. But I'm probably going today, around 4. I'd like to work on trail stuff, because I'd love to do a trail class with Rainy this summer. :) I feel like it's been forever since I've seen her, let alone riden, and it's driving me crazy! :P The Xanadu Christmas party went well, everyone loved their presents, which is good.
Love,
Rainy
And
Shelby

Dear journal,
How much do I love my horse? SO FRIGGIN MUCH!
Anyway.
I did trail work- so much fun! I realized after setting up the course that Rainy has never backed up for more than three steps. Problem? Of course not! She was a little hesitent at first, since she doesn't like not being able to see, but after I reassured her that a gaping hole had not sprung from the ground behind her, she was fine. :) We even managed a wall-length of collected canter. So much fun! Ah...it was good day. Lunged and then free lunged her after- trying to get her to canter (in the counter-clockwise direction) with the right leads on the ground, so I can (hopefully) be able to get that under saddle as well.
Another great day at the barn.
Oh, and I totally made Rainy a FB page. My friends all think I'm crazy, but personally I think they're just upset that they didn't think of it first.
Love,
Rainy
And
Shelby

Dear journal,
What an epic Christmas! :) I got a new saddle, with a girth, stirrup leathers and stirrups! Plus a new camera, which I can't wait to get to the barn and test both out.
It's a Wintec 500 All Purpose saddle, so Laura will have to help me fit it to Rainy, but I'm so excited!
Again, what an epic Christmas!
Love,
Rainy
And
Shelby

Dear journal,
Great ride today! :) Worked on cantering- though she was really hyper, the first round was great. Afterwards we free jumped her and Sonny, which was really fun, and she enjoyed blowing off all her pent-up energy. Still haven't gotten a hold of Laura, so I have no idea when I'll actually be able to use it. Still, I had a great time. Made a youtube video of all of us riding, which took forever, but it looks really cool.
Love,
Shelby
And
Rainy

Dear Journal,
So...it's been a while. I hardly get to ride since December, since it's been so cold. Lessons this week went better than the have in a while- Rainy actually leg yielded (correct word? Probably not...), and she did fine even when Honor was flipping a wingnut. I was proud of her. And proud of Megan. This girl is the greatest girl to be around. Even though Honor's stupidness has shaken her confidence to the core, she always bounces back. And I know she will this time too. She deserves a good horse, not one that's constantly acting up and scaring her. And what's worse is that she was scared of falling off before the lesson even started, and then he was a total dork and Laura had to ride. I hope he stops. I guess they're slowly taking him off Senior feed (probably a good idea, he's got the weight back, and now it seems like it's just making him hot), and they changed his bridle around too. I hope it helps.
As far as Rainy goes, however, nothing progressing or regressing. I just wish we had something firm to work on- other than slowing down and headset, we're just riding to excersize, it feels like. I'm getting to the point where I'd love to be out on trails, but it's barely warm enough to walk around in the indoor arena, let alone ride in the snow and ice. Sigh. Well, I guess my rant is over.
Until next time,
Rainy and Shelby
