We Become What We Dream...

The birthday girl got to ride
What more could any of us want on our birthday then to ride?! Notice the candy in her right hand- she practically threw it at me so she could ride. This girl loves candy but she loves to ride more! Thats my daughter for sure!

Friday the trainer ride went well... he was good- spookie like my ride Thursday. Trainer reminded the WS not get after him for ever little look/spook and pick on him and when she relaxed a bit he was SO much better. He jumped well and lead changes were great!

I cooled him out and cleaned him up cause the WS had to leave. Gave him his grain while he hung out in the cooler to dry off... groomed, blanketed and took him to his stall.

Then miss Bayley got her ride on Buster and we headed home to bath the dirt and candy covered 2 year old :)



Saturday was just a hack, trainer is gone.

Tried a new bit, it was a fail- he wasn't at heavy but his head was straight up in the air and I couldn't get him to go in a good frame and hold it... no bueno.

Anywho just hacked around on him- working on crisp transitions, frame, changing direction and him being willing to listen to me and bend, halting and not giving him anything to hang on (my hands).

Beautiful day

  6. Which bit did you try? I REALLY want to try that bit that I'd gotten a while back, the Dr. Bristol with the slow twist sides, on Lib.

    1. I ride Hue in a Dr. Bristol with the slow twist at shows - or I have at the last 2 hunter shows. I can be more creative at the events I go to sometimes.

  9. SO cute that your daughter likes to ride and loves horses!! My future children better be prepared... they're going to be inundated with horse stuff 24/7, so they need to at least be willing to put up with it :)

    I love that she rode in sparkly pink Uggs, candy in hand! She's a girl after my own heart as well :)

    1. Ah thanks! Yep she's always in style lol! The kid is going to have the best riding clothes too! She is to small for anything right now but soon! :)

      She's been at the barn since day 1, well before she was born since I rode while prego lol- I am sure your future kids will love horses!
