I'm going to KILL the frickin' barn goats. Okay, well, only Max. Ginger doesn't really bother me, just Max.
So annoying.

RockandRide- yeah, but Sage is like 11hh and I more slipped off her and fell on my back so it wasn't a very far fall. But this is Cheyenne. She's 14hh which isn't tall, but I got flung off her and into a big metal fence. It's WAY different. I am finding bruises everywhere on me lol

On Friday I was going to ride Cheyenne and so before I put on the bridle, I put the reins over her neck so she 'can't go away' and then I took off her halter. But she decided that she was going to go to the field so she started walking and I thought she was just being bad so I stopped and grabbed my crop and tapped her on the chest to make her stop and back up (which she usually does) but she almost stopped, but then started trotting. I lost my balance and she dragged me on the ground for a second before I realized that I was supposed to let go so I did and she cantered to the field with the bridle dragging behind her. I went to get her and I had to chase her around the field for about 20 minutes before she got sick of me trailing her and finally stopped so that I could catch her. By then my english bridle was ruined(or, well it looked ruined) and filthy and my horse deserved a punishment. I couldn't think of anything really, but I knew that I still had to work her so I lunged her until she was really tired and she stood okay for me after that.

I wasn't too amazed at the show yesterday either. She had SO much energy. "Lope your horses" ended up being gallop to her. In the jumping class, they put up the jumps to TWO FEET!! More than half of us couldn't jump that. Only two people in my class acually did and they did REALLY good. cheyenne's owner said that I've jumped that at the barn, but that was cross railes. These jumps were verticles. One of the girls almost flipped off the back of her horse in warm ups trying to jump that. The walk/trots got to do cross rails that I could jump easily. But two foot verticles? Nope, not doing that for the first time at a show. the judge wasn't too happy with me and the other girls who weren't going to jump it. But I don't think it was very fair in the first place. In previous years it was always cross rails and isn't Hunter supposed to be crossrails? thats what I heard someone say. Also they didn't put the height on the entery form either. In real jumping shows, they always put the height. I don't think that was very fair, but the judge discualified a few of us for going in and not jumping. But we did the flat work anyways. Whatever, maybe next year.
Overall I got a 4/5, 5/5, 4/5, discualified/5, 4/4, 3/4, 4/4 and I didn't stick around for the last placing because I know that I lost. It was Western Riding class so there was a pattern and stuff and part of the pattern looked like Pole Bending so Cheyenne thought it was a gymkhana so I couldn't get her lead changes and blah blah blah so I know that I lost anyways. The announcer picked that time to tell the audience about some kind of AQHA thing about how lots of riders don't realize that blah blah blah about speed in patterns is not important and blah blah blah. I was trying to get cheyenne to slow down for most of that so I wasn't really paying attention, but it kinda embarased me. I can't say that I did great. Okay, I can't say that I did GOOD either. I did okay. But at least I didn't lose ALL the classes like my first show. :)

Oh Cowgirl Up

He is annoying. He kept bothering Sunny and scaring the mess out of her. I mean, he was rubbing his horns on her legs and rearing up at her! C'mon!

I love them both, they are adorable. I just don't like Max when I'm trying to work with my horse.

She was banned due to being too immature or her threads constantly being closed due to to her not keeping up with them for example her contests. There is a thread kind of about it somewhere.
