    Well I haven't shown him yet, I don't think he's QUITE ready. I'll probably ride him in Green in June or something though :) He's getting good...quite the jumper too! Yeah Chey's doing great, she'll easily live past 35 since she's 29 now and is completely healthy and sound. thanks, lots of people think she's 8 :p Sucks that you can't ride as easily. Do you not have an arena?

    Thanks, we're very proud of how she's doing in her old age :) Yeah, well Cheyenne's doing better than a 13 yo at the barn, he has back, jaw, hoof, and neck issues, all that fun stuff that costs a LOT! Chey has the best conformation at the barn, says our chiropractor!! Thanks, the other horse, Maverick is SUCH a sweetheart. He's only 6 so he's a brat sometimes though. I had to get after him today...The other horses were being fed while I rode him so he kept bucking and stopping. I was ticked so I went and grabbed a crop, smacked him and he was amazing after that lol I remember having to do that with Cheyenne when I first started leasing. She did the exact same thing and I had to get after her and teach her that I was the boss. I let her have it and she never did it again haha After I got after him he was amazing like always! His owner came out and watched for a few minutes and she said "Oh, I'm smelling lots of blue show ribbons coming your way, Jess!" I was so happy :)

    Thanks, I'm very glad she's better (obviously :p ), it scared me to death considering that she's turning 29 this year and it was snowing and she wouldn't go in the barn like normal. Yeah it's tough keeping weight on the oldies huh? We're starting to give Chey grain now which is giving her a bit of a perk but we haven't really had to worry about that much yet. Yeah I was kind of unhappy at first but I realized that I still get to ride her and go to shows and gymkhanas so I shouldn't really get too disappointed. Her owner and everyone at the barn calls her 'my horse' anyway haha I'm riding another horse now too, six year old Arab named Maverick :)

    oh no that's not good!! Glad she's okay now!! Cheyenne's doing great, hot and healthy as ever! I was racing her on Sunday and she did totally amazing like usual! She got pneumonia a month or two ago which was horrible! That was her first time actually costing us money but she's totally good now :) She had choked on hay and couldn't get it out of her system for about 3 weeks, it was horrible, but she's good now so I'm very happy :) I was offered to get her for free last week, but my parents turned it down AGAIN. grr. oh well, I'm still riding her and so that's all that matters :)

    I also got some good advice on my thread about it, like relaxing your leg while keeping your heel down and not focus on your toes pointing forward so much because it will come with time and practice. That was my hardest thing, I tried to keep my toes forward, but if you relax it's more natural and you'll get used to the feeling of having your lower leg in place almost "wrapped" around your horse.

    I've also been starting to jump, and the BO/trainer has mainly just told me to keep my chin up and look forward, as well as keep my horse at a constant pace because sometimes he slows down.

    There's a trainer at the barn, I don't pay her for lessons or anything but sometimes she gives me pointers to help me out. I'm starting to feel more comfortable English now, I adjusted my strirrups different lengths until thy felt comfortable and now I'm getting used to it all

    Hey! Yeah it's been fun changing to something new. The hardest part for me has been learning to balance in such a different saddle with mote flexible, movable stirrups. With western you're more secure and your legs stay in place, but that's harder English. What's been hardest for you?
