Moi and Dana
Well I thought I'd hop onto the blog bandwagon and post my own... :D :D :D
Ok firstly My horse's name is Dana. Shes a 15.2 Tb gunmetal (silver) gray who is about five-ish. I've been riding her for about nine or so months now and I was interdouced to her by Crackrider.
Well I'll start with the last time I rode her on Sat.
We had a good ride. Well every ride is good with Dana because she's so comfortable. Like even when she plays up its still a joy to ride her.
Well I'll update later
Well I havent ridden her for a week because it has been raining NON-STOP!!
Its sorta YAAAAAAAAAYY!! and NOOOOOO!!!! at the same time.
Yaay because any rain we get in queensland is awesome, meaning more grass, softer ground, deeper creeks
Noooo because Dana loves mud........mostly on her.......grrrrrrrrr and its impossible to ride in the rain........
And her feild buddy, Delta, a chestnut ex-racehorse who is un-rideable got sent to stud. Fingers crossed coz last time she lost the foal......... dicky ticker apparently........
But anyway I rode her yesterday and she was pretty good. I went to try the road to some freinds place. Anyway, you can ride on both sides of the road. One side is like bushland, you know gum trees, knee high grass, logs ect, the other is really tall (cover an entire horse and mounted rider) grass. So in my caffine deprived brain I take the tall grass which was HEAPS thicker and deeper than previosly thought. Dana got to the middle with no fuss then stood there munching while im trying to signally her throungh thick grass in between her sides and my legs to walk on.
I gave up and turned for home......... :oops: :oops:
Moral of the story : use other side of road when visiting freinds :oops:
Well any comments like "WHAT AN IDIOT!!!"
Hai. I dont seem to be getting any replies which makes me feel lonely :? :( :(
but I will continue.......
I rode Dana on friday and she was SUPER happy to see me coz she';s been lonely. So I worked on jumping with her which didnt go too well. We completely destroyed this tiny jump and I was uttery peed off. And she keeps swerving away from trot polers. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy.......
So I was annoyed when I saw this mystery chic on a paint horse. I wanted to meet her and her horse so I took off trotting after her. So I caught up and it isnt a chic...... Its one of the boys from schools mom :oops: :oops: :oops:
So we got chatting and walked back into town. Dana got really competative and jigged most of it. But when I left her I took a short cut through this park and I did this really nice smooth canter. But anyway.......
so if anyone has any tips for stopping us demolishing jumps and her not swerving out I'd be really pleased
oh and tips for halter class.......
Don't worry!!! i'll answer you!!! :D :D :D
And we'll work on getting dana over those poles like we did this arvo!!! if it's the last thing we do!!!!!!!!! hehe!!! :D :D :D
Rather sad that we answer each other posts.......... anyway
Me and Crackrider worked Dana over poles yesterday and she was absolutely dripping in sweat when we finished. Ask Crackrider to conferm it.... but apparently we looked good. I'll have to post a piccie on Crituque......
We also had a stampede...of the sheep kind.....hehe!!! Dana was horrified!!!!
...i want to see pictures of your horse!
Ok everyone who wanted piccies of me and Dana here you go....http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/437_dana_ups_1.jpg
:shock: :shock: Yes Dana is pooping in the above......http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/437_moidana_1.jpg
Ignore the weird people ogling her........We get it all the time.....but the bikini babes are a bounus........ :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:
Well theres a couple of piccies.... I'll up load more later
Well I rode Dana yesterday but I actually did more socialising than actual riding I think......
First I went to these peoples place whose little boys ADORE horses so I went there to let them meet Dana. The kids were like jumping around all excited and she just stood there quietly.
Then I thought :idea: I
'I'll ride past my crushes house. I didnt see him but this little kitty comes out infront of me and Dana. The cat poofs itsself up and hisses and carries on while Dana was rooted on the spot, her heartbeat thundering in between my knees.
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Then I met up with some freinds and I stood chatting with them for awhile then I spotted a horsie freind of mine riding up ahead. So I caught up with her and she was riding on of her TB's a big. blocky, solid bay. When Dana gets with other horses she gets really compettitve, prancing and getting ahead like.
But Dana was soooo funny though with the cat :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:
We are SOOO going to have to get better pics of Dana!!!!!!!!!!
Those aren't the best angle and that was a while ago and she looks better now!! :D
My goodness I had the best time riding Dana yesterday. My arms have no strngth and all but Im sooooo primed with adrenalin its not funny :lol: :lol:
Well Crackrider was gona ride Trigger (read crackriders blog for more info) yesterday but he threwa shoe so she came over and worked with me and Dana.
Anyway it was stinking hot and we tacked up and Crackrider sent Dana away to begin lungeing her. We expected a buck or two which is normal but no soo close the Crackriders head!! So she lunged her for awhile then I got on and we trotted then cantered. A couple of mins in and the saddle slipped and I ended up around her neck, on foot in the stirrup the other half over the saddle. Anyway Im ther with my eyes shut waiting for it to end when Crackrider goes "Um you can let go now....." :oops:
So I stood there for a couple of mins to get my breath back and Im panting and Dana nudges the top of my helmet like "Are you ok?"
SO CUTE!!!! :D :D
So after a few more mins of lunging we progress to jumping.......or flying......
She jumped properly for the first time!!!! And as soon as she took off I knew she was doing it properly and we landed into a canter and Im still stuck in jumping postion. My mind was like blank but I bet I had a silly grin on my face though. But then something woke up and said "FENCE"!!!!!!.
So I camly go to turn right. nothing happens, try again a little harder, still cantering along. She ended up hitting the skids mm's before the fence. I had a weird speach bubble moment "Well i found her hard side!!"
But she was soooooo kool. like she swerved out once and refused to turn right towards the next fence but stuff it....I LOVED IT!!!
