Good Move

The move from Cherry Croft to Tavern went smoothly. I was very impressed how easy it was to get B on the trailer... but then again we've never really had a huge issue as long as he fits in it. Arab trailer? NEVER AGAIN! CB really wanted to keep him another week but I still owed him money from the last two weeks so it wasn't going to happen. I was barely there for any of his training anyway but now at this new place, I really think I'm capable of getting our sh*t together. We're already making progress. I haven't hopped on him yet because I really want JR to come out and do his feet now that his shoulder is almost back to 100%. I think that's one of the reason why B was so uncomfortable and scooting while at CC... We shall see!

So this post was from... well, a long time ago. I have been putting off blogging and honestly I can't even tell you why. Guess it's just been laziness, I've left my laptop in my Jeep for about a month. I just pulled it out last night, turned on my computer, and then shut it deciding sleeping was a better thing to do.

----

I was interrupted from the beginning of the second time I tried to post and I thought I'd just leave it there than start all over. It's almost been a month now since my last post and I've done a lot of things and have been living up to my "It's time for me to live a little" state of mind.

First off, last weekend I spent in Pennsylvania with Lauren from My Life with Charlie. Check out her blog for pictures of our amazing weekend! I hopped a train at 1045pm and arrived in Philly at 430am... And then I sat and waited. I got on another train around 730am and made my way to Lancaster. I won't bore you with my exciting train ride but half way through I stopped reading, looked out the window and said, "F*#$, I can't believe I'm actually doing this." It was so nice not to have to worry about well... Anything. I knew my pony was in good hands and A would be stopping in to check on him and my friend Morgan took Chevy for the weekend because Dad's been away.

Lauren picked me up and we went to "breakfast" with her grandmother who is probably one of the nicest ladies I have EVER met. We didn't waste any time and we headed to the barn. Trail ride? Is that even a question? I got to hop on this little Chincoteague pony that they had started a while ago. It was strange to be so close to the ground and have nothing in front of me. Talk about a short neck! But he was so much fun and such an easy ride. We followed Charlie and Lauren down the trail and explored a new path she had never been down. We had to lope to follow them at the trot, even hopped over a log or two. After getting back to the barn I tried out Charlie for the first time... Dreamy? OF COURSE! I was so impressed with how quiet and easy he was to ride. L has worked so hard with him and I can't even tell you how much it's paid off. You'll just have to read about it.

After the ride she took for amazing ice cream and I got a good pic of a cow sticking its tongue up her nose... For real. We made it home in time to sit and watch "Wild Horse, Wild Ride" and have a few beers and then caught the race... You know... THE race. That I will just leave at that because we all know the ending. After the race we both realized how exhausted we were and went right to bed, excited for the day ahead.

The next day we were up early and off to my first hunter pace. A friend of L's not only let me borrow her amazing percheron/thoroughbred cross for the day, but a saddle, a bridle, a helmet, and some fancy Ariat halfchaps... The girl was a dream to ride. DREEEEAAAAMMMM! At first I was nervous because it had been a long time since I just got on a horse I'd never met but as we went my confidence level went up. It helped that this horse took 110% care of me. Couldn't have asked for a better horse. The more comfortable I got, the more willing I was to let her go and next thing I know we're hauling a$$ with Charlie down the road. So much fun! On Monday I helped unload hay and clean stalls, then I got to hop on a couple of the training horses which was an experience I miss. We had a quick photoshoot of L and Charlie over some jumps before she dropped me off at the train station. They look amazing.

Clinton Anderson this past weekend. Went down with Deb and Greg to Albany, NY. Met some interesting people and learned a lot. Ended up joining the No Worries Club and winning the Advanced Horsemanship DVD set. Can't wait to start, if only I wasn't working 12-hours the next 3 days. 

WOOHOO!

SORRY FOR NO PICTURES!
