5 Day Challenge Day 4

Mean muggin the cows
FIRST! I got notice that my blogger gift was shipped out yesterday! :)

Our lesson got canceled last night but I still decided to hack.  There was a jumping lesson going on inside so it made my hack interesting. I was trying to stay out of their way cause I HATE it when I am having a lesson and someone hacking gets in my way.

The girls thanked me for being so aware of them and staying way out of their way. :)

So basically I just hacked to get Henry moving, I really couldn't work on much since they were jumping from every angle.

Post Ride .. all tucked in :)

16. One thing you'd like to change about your horse
That he would never stop ever again. I wish that little thought in the back of my head wasn't there and that I knew that he wasn't ever going to stop.. yes please!

17. Your horse's future
I'd like to do a derby one day... and be competitive/place well!

18. Your worst show ever
I can't say I have had a catastrophic show. I have had shows where I felt like I was robbed or things didn't go fair but that happens in anything that there is human influence.

19. Favorite horse show venue
That I have shown at recently, Starr Vaughn Equestrian Center.

Otherwise I'd love to go to Palm Beach Event Center, KHP.. really any of the big A shows are good with me. I love taking it all in.. and shopping!!

20. Your show day routine   
I do best when I don't have to rush so having enough time to lunge, groom, tack up and school is ideal.  In my ideal world, my class is ready to go when I am ready- BUT you know the hunter world, that NEVER happens so then I sit there and worry till it's my turn ;)


  1. Wouldn't it be nice if horses had a "no stop" button you could turn on?

    1. Yes! It would make things a whole lot different!

  2. I had a retired steeplechase. She was nuts - I loved her anyway - but her silver lining was that she NEVER stopped. Ever. Over anything. I'd kill to have another like her.

    1. Yes with the no stopping gene, you can deal with a lot of other "things" lol .. sounds like a special horse! :)

  3. Doing a derby is on my bucket list!

  4. What do you mean by hacking? When I take my horses for a hack its out on the farm - a trail ride. What did you mean?

    1. Flatting around (WTC)- not a lesson. We aren't allowed to jump on our own out of a lesson :)


Henry and I love to hear from you guys! Leave us comments!!! :)
