6 Days

Day 13: Bareback (this is Brodie, you can ready a little about him under the about Karley tab)


Saturday was a lesson... I was SLOW moving in the morning, feels like I am ever Saturday these days. Got there late but did a fast groom and tacked up.

Ran Henry around the round pen and got on.

Flatted around with the group.. the lesson already started so I just jumped in and did my own thing. When they cantered I joined them... then did a lead change when we were told to reverse, it required 2 tries :) Oh Henry!

Onto jumping.. I was told to wait, I hate waiting- not because I am impatient but because I sit and worry lol!

When it was my turn I did this:






Warmed up over 1 a few times. Then did the course numerically.
1. X/Wall
2. Vertical
3. Vertical
4. Wall Vertical (6 stride)
5. Rainbow Oxer
6. Oxer with a wall
7. Gate
8. Ground Polls to an Oxer

After the first oops at the second jump, I got my head in the game- sorry Henry didn't mean to bury you.

Henry felt good!

Cooled him out, untacked, gave a quick bath in prep for the show, cleaned tack, made grain and took Henry to his stall. Kisses for him of course!

Day 14: My Trainer :)

Went for a run tonight with the fam.. going to try and run 2 nights a week to add to my 4 days a week of riding... I can do it!

Hack Monday, lesson Tuesday, schooling (hopefully) Wednesday, off Thursday, trainer ride Friday, lesson Saturday and show Sunday.

  1. I have started running again since we moved to Ky but it is hard fitting it in with riding - and those dang hills don't help matters either! Stick with it :)

    1. Yeah it will be interesting to fit it in with everything else I have going on but I'm only expecting to get 2 runs in a week :)

  2. Yay show! I haven't been blogging much lately so I'm probably a bit late in saying that, haha.

    Good luck with the running! I'm sure going with hubby will make it a bit easier... Someone to motivate you!

  5. I would love to run, but its hot so dang late out here... we've settled for walks to the park. I need to do some serious core exercises. That's where my weak point is.
