I actually wrote an argument analysis on Mommy and Daddy a few weeks ago! Although I believe Mickey Dolenz(sp?) did the writing and such for that song.

Owww :,( I got headbutted by my horse today :( But I made him lay down and I laid on top of him! My trainer got a few photos so they will be up later!

Freaking out!!!

The antibiotics are working and apparently cheyenne's getting better!! No more wheezing when she breathes, just coughs now but those are slowly getting less and less hoarse (that's ironic lol)! Major happy dance!!!

SO I'll be waiting until she's fully better then give her a week rest then do light riding and get her back into the heavier rides later :) so I'm in a very good mood!!

Oh Cowgirl Up

Thats great!!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Great to hear this, Cheyennes mom! :)

Snickers made me proud of himself yet again last night! I've been training him to back up from pressure on the tail and he's been doing it perfectly also in liberty for a while now. So I tried just backing up behind him and tapping his butt lightly with my stick, and guess what - he followed me, backing up with me in his blind spot. Couldn't get any happier, he's been such a good boy lately and clearly thriving in his new home! :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I am so glad everyone is doing good with their horses...
I put the first ride on my three year old yesterday, and my new drill team horse, Patsy, is getting better with every ride.
I think 2012 is going to be a great horse year!

It sure seems so!

An boy, oh boy, it seems I will be able to afford my first saddle in a weeks time after all! I will look for a used one, but it's still exciting!

^ I actually prefer for someone else to do the breaking in...new saddles aren't so comfortable, even my Tucker was stiff at first..

Yeah, true. Also, buying used saddles can be better also because you get the chance to afford good quality saddles that would be too expensive for your budget, if a new one had to be bought.

I'm currently looking on a Kieffer all purpose model, but I have to wait for the owner to return from a foreign trip. My boy has a wide back and medium/low whithers, and it seems that his size is not too popular around here - everything is for horses with more narrow backs... I've already tried many saddles and all of them didn't fit him at all. What also makes me mad - in the place where he used to be a lesson horse (a greenbroke lessonhorse? seriously, people?! ), an ill-fitting saddle was put on him all the time so he still has to build up back muscles in order to deal with the problems they caused. Ugh...

I had thee best ride, ever, last night. It was explainabley blissful, and made me recall dreams of my younger years (although I am still young...) lol... :) Galloping through fields, stopping in the lush grass, wading through ponds, letting him graze while I lye beside him, everything, was just s perfect.
