We have more snow right now than all the snow we got all Winter.

I didn't ride because all the roads are closed! Literally... I have to go pas the police checkpoint, PROVE I live locally and have a d*mn good excuse for being on the road if I want to get to the barn where my horse is. Thankfully my friend where he's boarded is taking care of him and the rest of the horses for me.

I didn't ride today because I am a week and a half away from finals and all of my professors have decided that I have huge projects to do! So I am dividing my time between classes, school work, and the odd nap (no full nights sleep, just naps). Until May 1st when I am done with school and heading out to my job to be barn manager and camp (squee!) Horse Forum is how I will be getting my horsey fix =P

The only view I want to see is the landscape between my horse's ears <3

It was a lovely day! My excuse for not riding is that my horses are 3 1/2 hours away.
I'll hopefully get a ride in sometime this week with a riding lesson.
My last lesson was really good. Even when I got stuck in my riding instructor's driveway and her husband and father-in-law had to come push me out. Gotta love driving a little car!

Won't be riding today because I need to get some rotted, nail filled lumber out of the pasture behind mine so it will be safe to turn my horses out on it. It will be dark by the time I'm done with that, feeding and working with a couple of them on ground work. Maybe just maybe I can get some time in this weekend to ride.

Well I was going to today but of course living in a valley that is all dirt it has decided to be non stop windy. Got out yesterday and planned to again today but being sand blasted and fighting wind just isn't my cup of tea when I'm already getting sick haha. So evil wind go away or at least settle down enough to 'safely' ride.

Where is GH? I wanna hear her excuse for not riding. I like to get on peop's cases for not riding, I am the Ride Nazi online and in person! I didn't ride both horses today because I had a hair appointment before work, only enough time to ride one and do chores, then leave for the day.

I just rode today but haven't ridden at all this past week because my horse needed his feet done. He is used to being ridden almost every night. WOO energy!

GH is here, been busier than heck, well not really, have a small window of opportunity to ride each day, and so far, Monday had to go to town, Tuesday thawed early, Wednesday slept in.

This morning no excuses, so up early, ground frozen, perfect. Catch Emmy, groom her, decide just to practice her loading, and she decided that she wasn't going on, serve me right for asking an Arab to do something that she knows how to do well enough Then in the middle of that she caught me full in the Boob with a flying kick, my own fault for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but still, OUCH.

By the time we had finished doing loading, which she did fine in the end, I just ground drove her for a while, including up the road and back, and she was very good. From being spooky and jumpy even next to me, she is now calmly walking out in front love her.
