The After Math

So hubby and I were both sick on Christmas- awesome right?!

But I did get some awesome presents!!!

From hubbs-

Wellfleet Hunter Girth by Smartpak
Back on Track Saddle Pad White
Tailored Sportsman Trophy Hunter Charcole

From my dad-
Harwich Rubber Reins

From my father in law-
Smartpak Fleece Cooler

Money from my mom

A Santa Cruz Sweatshirt from my one brother

And a random mix of candies from others.

I def was blessed this Christmas!!!

Today I went out to ride/take a lesson. The indoor arena was packed hard hard hard so we rode outside in the big round arena.

This is a picture from the summer- it's much wetter then this right now lol
It was a bit sloppy but its better then riding on solid ground! There were puddles and my trainer insisted we ride through them- i cried at the thought of all the sand/mud I was going to have to clean off Henry and out of my stuff later.

It was all flat work today which is fine since I am still not quite well from Christmas. We worked on some counter canter too and that was a good feeling to accomplish. Henry did awesome and I felt like I wasn't to shabby myself lol!

enjoying some grass

beautiful weather today

Another lesson tomorrow and then again Saturday.

  2. Awesome! I love that they all got you horsey stuff. I wish a company like SmartPak existed here... I'd just send everyone some links to stuff I want and away we'd go! Haha. Though what we do now works just fine, as most people get me Greenhawk gift certificates (that's the only local tack store I frequent).

  7. you made out like a bandit this year!
    Last year at Christmas everyone, got sick. Hubby and I didn't get hit until we got home but it was awful, and this year it was brought up more than once how sick we all were!

    I love Henry's plaid blankie. Coneman had a similar blanket (until a nasty horse he was pastured with ripped it to shreds) and I think big red horses just look so classic in them.

  9. Hope you and your hubby feel better! And that sounds like a great bounty you got :-) Let me know how you like that Wellflet girth, since I still need a leather girth myself.

    1. I have used the girth once and like it.. though i think the sizing is a little small. I normally ride in a 48 but got a 50 and it fits like a 48 or a tad smaller. Other then that I like it a lot :)
