Back on the Blogging train.....maybe...kinda...

Things are getting kinda boring around here. Like here's video from like 2 weeks ago when I still jumped. 

Yea riveting, I know. You can tell she really loves this baby jump stuff. Luckily WS still puts her over the big stuff (like 3' stuff I'm gonna need awhile to get up to).

Other than that its been trying to hack without getting fat leg cramps, heat stroke, or over-tired. (Growing another life when summer won't end is hard, go figure).

Think I'm pretty much ready to hang up the spurs til post baby.

I'd love to keep riding until I drop the kid, but I would never live with myself if something happened, because horses (and moi) are clumsy.

This means I need to think of some ground work goals to keep me from just sitting around, losing muscle tone.

Ideas for things to work on are welcomed ;) I figured ground tying, and working on some of the spooky things (like flags and balls etc) would be fun (although maybe not brilliant as I get less-balanced).

Best part of the week: OB told me I could gain more weight! Heck yes!

9. Do you go trail riding often? I wish. Property to hack  but no real trails, boo.

Otherwise, more of the same, lots of flat, little bit of tiny jumps. Riveting I know ;)
