I love getting mail!!!

First off... my blogger gift arrived! Thanks to Jessica and Prince for an AWESOME saddle pad. I LOVE IT! It's seriously perfect! And we love to be matchy matchy :)





Backing up..

Saturday was our lesson.. I was a tad late cuase we were out WAY to late Friday night at hubby's Christmas party.

Groomed, tacked up and hopped on and flatted on my own since I was late. 

Then we jumped... Warmed up over an X and a square oxer, going both ways.

Course: X, right to a square oxer, left to a 4 stride line (oxer to a wall), left to a sweetish oxer and right to a 2 stride line (vertical to a little panel).

I was having a problem in the 4 stride line- Off my left lead I am horrible at seeing my distances ha!

Henry was awesome and I can't complain, he is so good at dealing with me ha!

Sunday I went to a barrel race with my bff and her mom. She got second in the 1D (that's basically 2nd place our of 102 people so yeah she's pretty good :) lol)





Grayson was almost perfect the whole day. He was great when I was handling him but was put in a not ideal situation by someone else handling him.. nothing bad happened he just got a little jumpy :) Overall a GREAT outing and experience tho!

Monday Henry got turned out cause I had to finish some stocking shopping and get a baby shower present for a friend :)





I also got the new Higher Standard saddle soap and conditioner I ordered :)






Hopefully B will cooperate and I can hack tomorrow am, idk about the rest of the week- he will get out just not sure in what capacity :)

      I've only used it twice so I want to use it a bit longer before I review :)

      Yeah Im excited for my bff... she's been doing awesome and is such a great rider, none of that crazy whip spur flapping stuff - she's got a great horse and rides well so they tend to kick bootie :)
