    Thanks, I used to use a Tom Thumb bit on Spirit, but then I read this article called The Trouble With The Tomb Thumb so I stopped using it. Then he got better, now he's worse . . . everyone says to do a one rein stop, but idk how to do that. Do you know? Same with me, I've ridden saddleseat about 4 times and sometimes I hate it and sometimes I love it. And sometimes I hate western and sometimes I hate hunt seat and then I love both the next day :) :P I rode my friend's saddlebred the other day and she was amazing! I can see why people love them <3

    Yeah, Spirit is being pretty bratty too, he doesn't want to stop . . . he's not responding to his new bit very well . . . or at all pretty much . . . Oooh, I didn't know you and Moon did western, you like saddleseat better I'm assuming though?

    Oooh I like stories ;) Spirit and I don't show. I've shown him once in egg and spoon then again in ride a buck (we kicked butt! lol!) But I never really show him. He's purely a pleasure horse. If I wanted to show him, I'd have to show him in racking classes with old guys with harsh looking bits and horses that rack like crazy and I don't know if he can compete. He can be a brat in the saddle sometimes, especially when people are watching :) He knows when people are watching him so he can embarrass me.

    I'm glad I didn't die too. Rain Dancer is finally moving to a different barn b/c the lady that owns him was really rude to the barn manager (I mean really rude). It's also so dang HOT here. It's murder to ride anywhere other than the covered arena if you want to ride at all. I'm now I'm really afriad to go on the trails b/c Spirit had a mild allergic reaction to the gnats biting him, so yeah, it's a misery down here. So do you show much with your horse?

    Yeah, I melt in hot wheater. I went on a trail ride a couple weeks ago with my friend Regina and her brother Alex. We crossed the creek, so did the other horses in the pasture along with that stupid horse Rain Dancer and they were galloping all around us. Rain Dancer has a herding issue (OCD appy) so he's trying to herd Regina's horse Dancer and the horses were jittery and rearing and I had 2 get off Spirit and then he reared when I was on the ground! It was the weirdest thing . . . then we were trying to chase the other horses back across the creek and they were galloping around us and it was hot and the bugs were a misery . . . anyway, that was the worst trail ride in the history of trail rides so I'm not on the trail too much until someone does something about Rain Dancer. I love your new avatar thingy :)

    They were supposed to die 2 months ago and they were only supposed to last 2 weeks, but I guess since it's been so rainy, that they just keeping comming back. Yeah, it makes any trail ride a misery, so does the heat! I hate hot wheater, such the cold wheater person :)
