Riding Kid


So yeah... Deb texted me and asked if I wanted to come ride Kid this morning. I thought to myself, I really need to get back on... Like bad. Jump on Kid? Hell yeah! Off I went to Morning Star. Brought my saddle along and tacked up. Decided to hop on him with a rope halter and lead rope seeing as he's been in training with a small shank bit and I didn't want to screw anything up. That didn't last. Deb threw in his snaffle bit and we plodded along...

I was a MESS. My legs were everywhere and he knew it. He took complete advantage of the fact that in that moment... I didn't know what the f@#* I was doing. It was a little heartbreaking seeing as I was remembering all the horses that I rode and trained in that arena during the reign of LB. Crazy Girl and Lucky Boy. There wasn't anything we couldn't do... And now that Crazy Girl can't even bop around on a western pleasure pony.

We finally got around and I just loped him since that's one thing I know I can do right. Drop the reins and just go. Soooo... I'm thinking that I may drop some cash and take some rides with Marissa (Kid's new trainer) and try to get back on the bus.

In the end hough... I was really happy to get back in the saddle. It really helped to give me a good look at where I'm at entering the beginning of this year. I have a lot to work on when it comes to myself and luckily I have an awesome support system to get me there!

:) Agreed! Once we start rolling again I don't think much can get in our way.
