    Burn notice, oh my god. We dont have cable, and this summer I went to California to stay with my uncle for a while, and I watched a few episodes of Burn Notice and commented to him how much I didnt like it, well he thought that was hilarious, and I was up their just in time for the Burn Notice finale - oh my god, it was DAYS of Burn Notice, all in a row, and he kept the TV running 24/7 on Burn Notice. Whenever Id change it he'd go over their and change it back to Burn Notice. Every single time I looked at that TV it was more Burn Notice... It was so jacked up I watched probably 50 episodes of Burn Notice in a day, hahahaha.

    I think my current TV obsession is Breaking Bad... <3 Gawd it amazing.

    Yeah, getting a level headed fast barrel horse sounds like allot of work My friends barrel horse is pretty good with the barrels, and on trails is quite mannered and calm, but if your trying to work him in a arena, not doing barrels, you can forget about it.

    Yup, when its in the 100s here you cant really do anything with the horses either. Its REALLY humid too, so the heat index is always sky high (its reached about 118 before ) Stupid Arkansas. I want to move from here simply so I can ride all year round

    Oh my god, yesh. "They "ride" horses but they don't have horsemanship" <<< Amen to that. Allot of riders here are like that. They can ride, but thats it. Horses are allot more than just riding.

    No shame in using a mounting block. My trainer made me use one... For the same reason you use one. I personally dont use one on my shorties, but have nothing against them...

    Its finally cooling off here... It was in the 100s almost every day last week, and it was only like 89 yesterday! So beautiful. This weather makes me want to go riding more than ever.

    I was Riding Rusty bareback on the road when he spooked and slipped... We fell down together and he landed on on his left side, crushing my leg... I have a leg of steel too now, literally they had to put a rod in their to put it back together. And The Office is gut bustingly hilarious. Ive seen it on and off before

    Do you have a drivers license? Oh wow, being a excersise rider would be tons of fun. Will it be for a barn or individual people?

    What are you training the barrel horse for? A Western pleasure, or trail rider or English or..?

    I went to a Western horse show today with a friend... Funny, the ambulance driver that had come to get me when I broke my leg was their. His daughter competes, it was pretty cool seeing him their. I was crutching around, and I think EVERYONE stared. How embarrassing.

    Some of the riders really pissed me off. The amount of spurring and whipping going on was sad. The horses were acting up because of that... The riders are trying to achieve something better, but really they are making it worse instead. The horses werent acting up out of naughtiness, but out if exasperation. Heck, if I was a horse Id become a bronc if anyone did that to me

    17hh? A monstrosity! I dont know how I would even mount a horse that tall How tall are you?

    Pt 1 (because the letter limitation) Hahahaha, I do that too. Its like Im talking to myself on my wall... ****** calling, ****** calling.

    You know... I would work, just to get money for the horse. Work maybe for awhile so you have enough money to last abit, then possibly find a new job that has hours where you could still ride? I dont know, my opinion :p That sounds like a LOAD of work. Holy mother of manure, two horses poop enough that if you dont clean the pasture weekly you are overwhelmed.

    Haha, it makes me feel ******ed

    Does this trainer teach English or Western? Are you cleaning stalls in exchange for lessons? Cleaning up after horses is tough... I usually clean the horses pasture/stalls every few weeks or else it piles up since they only poop in the corners... Gosh, its piled up high enough right now they probably could walk over the fence without any effort -.- I have allot of work to do, hahaha.

    Awe, Ive always wanted a taller horse... My two are midgets... How tall is the TB?

    Having a smart moment, I was waiting for a reply, come to find I hadnt even sent a message... Yes

    Thats good that the bucking horses can find good homes. I wouldnt think they would, it might be hard to train them out of something like that... who knows!

    Yes, it seems pretty worthless to be slamming on the horse and kicking him... Or when people beat the crap out of their horse to make them go faster. AHHH! I have no problem with taking a crop and giving a firm slap to say "lets go" but continually beating the poor beast... God, what thoughtless riders.

    Did you ever go check the horse out?

    Yeah, Ive watched bronc riding videos, and I think that is the scariest part too. Not knowing what happens when you hit the ground... it looks even more dangerous with the bulls... those things are out to kill Arent the broncing horses trained to buck? I think thats kind of sad... And what happens if you arent a successful "bucker"? Probably not good things...

    At the end of the barrel pattern when people look like they are levitating because they are kicking their horse and their legs are flapping, it just looks very unbeneficial. Its probably not helping the horse to run faster by slamming on his back and flapping your legs like a chicken. He already knows what to do, and by staying out of his way you would be helping allot more... Pet peeves ;)

    See, thats what I always thought a rodeo was. Have you ever done bronc riding? Ive always wondered, but since I know nothing of the bronc riding industry, are those horses actually treated good? Are they treated like horses, or... bucking bulls?

    I like the TB better ONLY because even though the Arab isnt showing signs of age yet, 20 is a little older, and when you have to retire him you'll have to get another horse... But Arabs are kick ass horses so... Haha, yes, tough decision.

    Does barrel racing put more strain on the horses muscles than most other western events? It does look quite intense...
