something from nothing

Hey all , this is a 'blog' for my training with cricket, i'll start with some will help explain stuff

I got my first ever pony in 2006. i love her silly. she is a lease pony but the lady ( shes awesome) told me that she's mine for how ever long i want her, which is awesome but this past year i have noticed that i was getting to big for her. it's seemed as if everytime i rode her, my sturrip leather hole at a time. and even tho i love her, she just wasn't want i really wanted in a horse, it just wasn't fun, like it's suppose to be... THEN CAME CRICKET
My BO and her hubby split this summer...long and drawn out. and it came to a point where either of them were working together to make it go smooth as possible. She thought that he was going to take the farm from her and she needed places for her horses, not to leave the place, but just a home where she new that they would be safe and fed. a couple were said to go to 1 person and a couple to another and Cricket and Dakota to me, ( Dakota is a troubled horse who seems to hate everyone but me) . as the summer drew to the end it seemed that things were going to be okay, she was to keep the farm and horses. but in her will( just in case) she left Cricket and Dakota to me. SO since i wanted another ride. since keva was getting to small, i am using Cricket for the next little bit.

Cricket is a 6yo French Canadian/QH . shes as sweeeeet was pie but knows ZIP.

she was ridden about twice since her training and has never been in the cross ties. never on a trailer and she's had minimum handling in this last 2years. Shes sound and sweet and my PROJECT HORSE

My goals

take her to showmanship classed in 4H this year, possibly ride her in a small show at the end of the year.

So far....

Last sunday i started ( exciting) there is still snow on the ground so i brought her in to work in the cross ties. She was awesome, a little skittish but over all impressive. I'm going tomorrow after school to work with her more.
