So yeah, I decided to spam you guys with Cayden even though I had one like two or three weeks ago.:p But since I don't know how much longer I've owned her, you'll be seeing pictures of her more often.:p

I've got my eye on two horses to try out.

Today we jumped for the first time since the show and Cayden was really good about it! I worked really hard not to over jump her and I think her jumping form is better since I'm more balanced.:3 though my EQ is gross since I haven't jumped in months and haven't ridden much either.>.> We jumped up to 2'3 today and I'm proud.<3 Oh, and ignore the pole on the side to us, that was just to assure that she would actually jump it since my confidence over fences is pretty low.:/

Picture time!

Yeah she lost quiet a bit of muscle.:/


I actually really like this one [x

Good horsey :)

Yeah I did this one just for you guys for some entertainment xD

Failed attempt at the peace sign xD

Someone is looking like an Arab, lol xD


Pony love<3


First jump in two months

What breed is she? She's gorgeous! x) I've jumped before, but I haven't jumped recently. And I've only jumped crossrails and a tiny vertical. The horse I rode was actually a pony, a Haflinger!

Angie: That sucks you can't do both.:/ but I totally feel you on that one, I want to try doing dressage but I can do both hunters and dressage do to money reasons.

evensteven: Aww thanks! She's a Morgan/QH cross.:) And that's awesome! I love Halflingers! I rode a Halflinger/Arab cross when I first started taking jumping lessons, he was awesome. Though he was tall for having breeding lines for shorter horses, and he was a bay, with a giant white spot on his belly.xD and white socks like a paint. Which is weird cause he has no trace of paint in his family.o_O sadly he had to be put down a couple years ago.:/

Can I just take her? Can I have her? x) How old is she? That's so weird! My Haflinger was the normal coloring for the breed. He was sold though and now he's going to start western and training for gymkhana. I miss him. I only rode him twice. :lol: He was green too.

Haha! I would, if I had the money and lived in Oregon. Well, that stinks. :\ She seems like a good horse! It's not! The barn I've ridden at has gone through lots of lesson horses. They sold the old ones because they were old. I've been there for three years now.
Let me just move to Oregon so I can buy her. :lol:

Haha yes, you should move to Oregon and buy her! haha, not only you'll get a great horse but live in a beautiful state too! :D Oh I see! I wish my barn kinda did that, a lot of our school horses are mostly between the ages of 19-24, and basically all but two of them are shorter than 14.2h. Which sucks cause I'm 5'7 and there's only two tall horses that I can ride without looking awkward.xD

I should! Arizona is too hot. Haha. I think most of the lesson horses we have now are around the ages of 17, but I'm not sure. My trainer only holds lessons for one day of the week and she has nine kids to teach! All with different hours. I feel bad for the horses, they're usually used one after the other. I'm tall too, but the horse I ride isn't too short.xD
He's actually the horse in my picture.

Aww he's so cute! :D <3 and I couldn't even imagine how hot it gets in AZ, I mean, I've been there once when I was 7 for spring break, but it wasn't bad. But it wasn't summer either, so...xD how hot does it get there usually? Over in Oregon the hottest it gets in my area is 95, sometimes 100, but only in the lower elevations and more city like areas haha.

Yes! I love him. :) In the summer it can get to around 110 degrees, but it stays around 100 most of summer. Right now, I'm in Texas and it's so green and it rained a couple times. I'm just so amazed. We never get rain and it's as dry as a desert in AZ.xD No green stuff anywhere!

Aww that's no fun! I wouldn't like living in a place with no green. That's pretty much all we have in Oregon.xD What breed is the horse you ride? I just love his star.<3 I have an obsession with that kinda marking and I don't know why.xD

Eh, you get used to it.xD Everywhere else in the world is green. Like for real. He's an Arabian and his name is Gig. Obsessing is a good thing. I'm obsessed with all white socks. So gorgeous!

Possibly.xD And aww I love Arabs! :D I recently rode this gray Arab named Chance. He loves to jump which makes him wanting to go fast.xD but everything was good except this one jump, he like took off way to early, like two strides to early, and some how I manged to stay on.xD I wish my mom flimed me cause I'm sure it was funny looking. But he was the first Arab I've ridden since I gave my old horse, Chance, away. lol. I forgot how much I love riding them haha.

xD good job! haha. i fell off the haflinger when he was going to jump a cross rail. i felt so dumb for falling off. and he was weird over verticals. it's like they were too tall for him so he had to spring up higher. it just felt weird. he also liked jumping over jumps, so he would speed off after. we would almost crash into the fence.xD
