Because We Don't Do Much...


There's not a lot to write about. So I will just add pics and gif to make this blog seem interesting.

My current motto

Holly is getting 3 trainer rides a week. Its supposed to be 2 jump by WS, 1 flat by trainer, but thanks to nature and WS's schedule, its kinda sketchy. This makes it a bit of a pain for me to know what days to run her highness around myself and schedule accordingly.


Its still hot out. And dry out.

Mostly. Its getting dark faster and last Tuesday (a week, not last night) WS decided she wanted to just 'hop on' Holly without lunging first. This would be ok, except there was crazy wind, and everyone was crammed into the indoor, with its awesome blowing canvas tractor covers, and leaves blowing across metal roof sounds.

Trainer and I suggested she take the extra minute to lunge, but frankly, I think both of us kinda wanted her to see what happens. WS is a well-balanced rider, but Holly was a spazzy diva across the open end of the arena... Trainer made sure WS did plenty of no-stirrup and two-point work regardless and pretty much kept her to the open side until Holly was tired of playing chicken.

After that, she did some lead changes, and decent canter work. Sigh, so hard to watch others ride your pony.



Yup, that's about it.... My son still loves going out to see HORSES!!! and begs to go to the barn, which warms my heart.

  2. The kids are cute. And it is hard, but at least when you get back on you know she has been well cared for under saddle especially because you are still involved.

    1. Thanks, and I can't wait to get back on, I miss those little moments where you just click with your horse and the world seems right.
