    Leyna- your endurance pictures make me wish my arab Charlie wasn't so ruined from his previous owners and his barrel past. Retired him very early at 13 because his mind just isn't there. He can be marvelous one day and shaking in a corner the next, breaks my heart. Charlie is at my aunt's for "retirement." He got a hair cut because his hair was getting too tangled.

    Aww. He could probably do it. Believe me I have seen some horses with major issues, it takes them a couple of years of long slow patient miles. But they come around and even love doing the sport.

    Yeah, I've spent years with him overcoming it just astounds me what must be in his head. What is horrible too, it's not disrespect, it's actually fear. Something just snaps in him and he freezes, and shuts down. I can't wait for this summer though I think I'm going to bring him closer to my barn for the summer and see what we can do! He LOVES to go, to run, to trot anything for long periods of time on a good day. I've spent hours some days riding to show no signs of being tired. While I was just about dead, lol. BO has said it's fine as he's 3+ hours away now. Hopefully we make some progress after giving him some real time off! I can't wait. Hopefully he'll pop up on this thread.

    I haven't ridden since Sunday, and that was just a quick arena ride before I gave my little cousin a lesson.

    It has been raining Shetlands around here non-stop. It almost cleared today and then came back. I want to ride!

    Wellllll, not the best I got one bareback lap around the arena because everything else is still under ice. Walker took a digger too when he decided to let him self skate. So we just walked a lap, and I lunged for a bit. Then let him play with the babies. Can't wait to get out this weekend and ride though! Sleigh ride on Saturday hosted by the driving club I'm part of. Should be a blast, looking at 15f which is better than we've had and sunny!

    So, the flooding rain we have had since Sunday has finally ended! So I ride Drambuie today after cleaning out the stalls and he started out ok but not very fast. Just when we are moving at a 8.6 mph trot and I am asking for more...he steps in a hole with his left hind! Darnit!

    I think I need to take him in for that lameness exam anyway, cause he was stumbling some even before the hole incident. I am getting very discouraged with that horse

    Finally

    Well, I was finally able to get out and get some pictures of me and Rose! I am still not too comfortable riding her on the roads yet, so I was only able to get pictures from my phone, but I hope they will do. :) I had my boyfriend take a picture of me and rose before I hopped off. My boyfriend if scared of horses, and I have only been able to get him on Rose once. Poor guy, he didn't even know what to do, and she took advantage of that and walked over to the tall grass and started eating!! Haha. But, here are some pictures.

    We didn't ride much, just about an hour around the house. We went up and down the drive some, down to the neighbors pasture and walked around there some, we went about half a mile of the actual rode because it was flat and I figured she could keep her balance and not slip on the flat part of the road.

    But she did so well. The last time I rode, she wouldn't go through water at ALL, but this time she went through it without a problem. She also went through the tall scary grass without wanting to stop and turn around like last time.

    We also had a school bus and a huge loud truck run by us too, and she never even batted an eye. She did very very good. I am going to start working on her manners tomorrow though - she likes to run people over when she knows they have food. Haha.

    Oh, pictures right.. :)

    Here is the big nasty water puddle that rose walked through. What a good girl! :)

    And here we are when we got back from the ride. :)

    There seems to be a lot of holes where your riding......Do you need me to send Bubba and the boys down there with their groundhog rifles?

    There are holes, there are rocks, there are big ant beds, uphill and downhill. I can't ride a straight line anywere it seems...

    Send Bubba & the boys...will the rifles work on the antbeds too?
