My amazing red boy, all woolly mid winter, not exactly sweating after our ride. Waiting for his breakfast :)

thought I would add that I weighed in yesterday and was not very suprised honestly to find id lost no weight in the last 2 weeks 👎 so.. definitely need to add to the daily effort at wellness :) So today I resolved to add the 30-day 3-liters of water challenge to my daily to-do list as I really don't drink enough water. Lets see if THIS helps "shift weight, improve skin, energy levels & reduce headaches and joint stiffness" as it says will happen - excited! - downed the first 2 litres today already, a litre to go (water day 1) 😅

Ride 38...tex not sore at all, we got back in the snaffle today and did lots of flexing, turns, shoulder& haunches in...at wall and jog. Was a great ride and im starting to see how you go back to the snaffle to correct issues like dropping shoulder...we worked on lots of exercises today to stop his habit of cutting corners & dropping shoulder ;) Day 2 of water challenge also :)

I really do love your horse, he is a hunk!
As for the weight loss thing...I guess unless you're doing shed loads of rising trot and stuff you wont be using enough energy to burn fat? Keep at it, you'll get there!

I am her eyes. She is my wings. I am her voice. She is my spirit. I am her human. She is my horse.

Thank you for your nice comments about my horse!
I think you are right about riding not helping weight loss alone. I'm dieting, yes Im quite heavy still (about 95kg & tall) and Im aiming for 75 kg ...I owe you a big thanks actually..Was just about to tuck into a big not-needed snack when I read your post - you have motivated me to put it back in the fridge!! I've had a tough 5 weeks, my mum got diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in her arm, its been removed and she's healing but now radiation starts. Mum is priority but I really feel the lack of riding in that time, I miss the progress every day...plenty of time ahead though with spring nearly here 🌺

Ride 39 - rode with my daughter in the arena, we had such a good ride, then she has a lesson on tex as its soooo much easier to learn how to sit the trot on a western trained horse than bouncey wee pony!

How is your horse bred? Or is he...?
He's nicely put together. I like him.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Hi! Thanks for the compliment. I think he's old fashioned short stout type.
