.:. Walk A Mile In Sparky's Boots .:.

Ok, well I have decided to keep a blog thing. I have done this before, and what usually happens is: I write religiously in my blog for a few weeks, then writing starts to dwindle...until it finally stops. So, that's what most likely going to happen here...but oh well.

Thursday 18th January 2007

Today has been quite uneventful. I rode Zanath (on her exercise regime hehe) then mum rode her, and we took her and Clary on a short trail ride. Well, mum rode zanath, and I just walked clary along.

I tried a 130cm girth on zanaths original saddle. The girth is still too short lol. It's because the girth straps are short..

Huuummm. I rode clary this afternoon, after the farrier came and fixed up his hooves. He is sooo annoying. He would not walk forward, he does not turn, crops don't work on him. Thank god he does not buck or rear

It's 38 degrees celcius here right now. Quite hot. Hot but nice.

I guess that is all I really have to say right now.

Lucky, You say its hot down there?! Its SO cold up here...Its bellow freezing.....

Haha, I just relized I said up here (not even thinking location wise) and how people refer to austrailia as being "down under" lol...Maybe its not that funny...hope that's not a racist joke or anything.....

Lol. Even I refer to it as "down under" sometimes. I do not believe that us aussies even think that is racist. But, who knows, with all the weirdness in this world today.


I just rode bareback on Zanath...the first time I have ever ridden bareback. It was AMAZING!!! Mum was leading me of course, because I don't feel quite safe enough on her just yet to ride by myself bareback.
I felt a really strong bond between us, it was like we were two creatures, molded into one. Just a really beautiful, amazing feeling.

I don't remember the first time I rode bareback

I remember the first time I cantered bareback....My instructor made me on Normandy (HUGE withers)...I was crying....

Sparky- I know the feeling!! You feel so much closer to them when you ride bareback, once I found out that I could ride bareback on Cassey, I don't remember the last time I used a saddle

I dunno if I could ride the canter or not....

I love riding bareback, like you said sparky it makes you so much closer to your horse, i'm lucky my boy is really comfy to ride bareback and he's not too bouncy which makes it easier. Hope your having fun riding bb! And I love the hot weather here, except I have to ride either really early or late!

This morning I woke up at 9:30am...wow, the horses were angry with me for sleeping in

They got fed, I had breakfast, did the bunnies...and then I rode I love having Zanath at my place, I have been wanting a horse for 11years, lived in the country for 7 years, and now FINALLY I have a horse.

We rode around the paddock, she was a bit stubborn, she is still a bit green...but it is slowly going away. We did a lot of cantering up the hill lol. But gosh, she is like a racehorse...zoom!!!!! Hehe.

I actually rode bareback again after cantering up the hill. I decided to do it by myself. It was even more amazing. Argh, but its hard to get on a 15hh horse from the ground lol.

We just walked and trotted around, ****, her withers are bony and ouchy hehe. My brother wouldn't get on her bareback :roll:

Its going to be 38 here tomorrow, and I have a riding lesson...hot..nice

I wish it was hot where I am...

At our barn Don (barn owners husband) has Sarah (raini) and I get on our horses bareback "the indian way" it is where we swing our leg and kind of jump at the same time....

I can't do it.. Not even on 12.1 hh pony....

Sarah can do it on a 16 hh horse!!!!
