Saddle fits nice:)

So, I rode. I've been riding. Last weekend I believe, I rode over to my friends house.. and worked with her friends horse( he is for sale, they are keeping him on their property- I don't understand completely but anyways ya).. and He is GORGEOUS.. I very easy horse to get along with.. BUT knows nothing.

He is green. Very green. Since he isn't my friends horse, she doesn't work with him.. since she has her own boy to work with. I was given permission to work with him, and fell in love. He is a brat sometimes. But it's expected for a 4 year old that has not been worked in over a year..

Anyways, I rode Sunny over, there. On the way, he freaked a bit. Since he had not been ridden on the road since last summer. Got there, and tied him to the gate. And he stood there. Like a champ for about 45 minutes... While I worked with Zues, just ground work.. lunging and stuff.

Got on and Jazz and I rode horses together, and then I had to leave:( sad day..

ANNYWAYS. I rode again today:).. Sunny is just getting better and better:).. I am having an issue though....he does not want to pick up his left lead.. I believe, ya.. his left.. he will.. but will go back down to a FAST trot or cross fire(?).. and it seems like he is limping until he gets back into a correct lead? If that makes since... only on one side though.. He does fine the other way.. HIS LOPE IS EVEN SLOW AND CALM LIKE NOW:)!!We moved some cows today, since they decided to jump the barbed-wire. And then stopped for the night. Gave him some hay and grain. And now I am here. I can't wait to start showing him. HE IS AMAZING:)!!! .. for now anyways haha

ALSO.. I bought polo wraps.. and they look funny when I have them on.. anyone have any good videos for how to put them on lol:)?

Been good:)

Sunny has been doing really well. We have actually been working on Poles and Barrels again.. ITS HARD NOT TO!. I have videos but they take forever to upload since they are longer because I was the only one riding, I just set the camera up. He Crossfires turning the barrel on one side though. We are working on it though. I will try and post part of the video on PB and then on here.

ALSO, I have GREAT news. I think I am getting a new horse:)! His name is Rooster, He is a solid paint gelding. 8 years old with a bald face. Little training but has been shown before. Winning money. He is free without register papers or 150 with them.

Anyways Im at school right now so I will post more later:)!

Well, I'm not sure what I have said about recent stuff and what I haven't so sorry if I repeat... I am NOT getting the new horse:( But that still leaves me time to work with Sunny.. He DOES need his teeth done.. I can not keep weight on this horse to save my life.:(

Anyways, recently, I rode Poncho over to JazzyGirls( user on here- yes I have permission to talk about her on this thread- if I needed it lol) Helped her catch her horse Cowboy, and we started out to my house.

It was a nice journey haha. The reason I rode Poncho was because having BOTH green-er horses on a rode that people don't GIVE A **** about horses.. would be bad. So having Poncho would be better and keep Cowboy on the calmer side. It was Amazing. I was so proud of Cowboy.:)!!!

Okay, on to Sunny now. We got to my house and we rode in my arena.. And then we had to wrangle some cows haha. BOTH Cowboy and Sunny got very hyper doing this. THEY LOVED IT. We loped about the pasture collected a cow that was running everywhere with wire wrapped around her neck. That day was amazing.

Recently, I have noticed Sunny's ribs starting so show AGAIN. I had him on senior Glo, grass hay, 2 flakes of alfalfa, and about half a bale of this hay that doesn't really have anything but something for them to munch on haha.. ( for two horses) TWICE a day..>:(

Really starting to irritate me. I ran out of senior glo and decided to try something else. I got him wormed today. And got some type of preformace feed for hard keepers. So we will try this once a day along with the same hay regiment that he is on now( maybe more grass hay along with that)..

I rode him today and he was okay. I think that I need to get a chiro out. He keeps crossfiring on BOTH sides now. And is going at a wierd pace and won't stay in the lope, and is having a hard time flexing his neck.. :/ and his back legs are being wierd!!

Anyways, I love him and I owe my dad about $200 for everything that's going to be happening soon. Floating his teeth, getting back feet shod, and MAYBE a chiro/vet out..

Hoping everything will be fine:/

Getting a little worried, but also there is improvement!

I rode last night I believe lol. Getting busy is hard to keep track of when I ride! We did warm up outside of the arena, working on side-passing, spinning in both directions, and backing.

He has become a bit reluctant to back up. He will, but it's slow and as if he doesn't want to, but he does because I am telling him to.. He used to go faster while backing, now its REALLY slow. Even if I pick up the reins.

On the left lead, He is off completely. Will not pick it up- or crossfires the whole time. I am not sure how to fix this problem and I am going to have my vet assess what I can do about it. Maybe it's something simple. If I am lucky.

He is FINE and DANDY on the right lead. SO I am thinking maybe he needs the chiro out.

Anyone else have this issue* Or had, and had the chiro out and it was fixed*?

His trot is amazing now though. Nice and slow, I can actually let the reins just hang low on his neck and he keeps a steady pace:) WITH his head low.

anyways, I lost my train of thought. SO I will add stuff later:)
