Catch Up


CLICK ABOVE TO VOTE FOR B!


Playing catch up here... A lot has happened... Like my last day at the animal hospital is August 11th... I caved an am staying 3 weeks instead of 2.


That's probably the most exciting thing other than the 2nd Hunter Pace Wendy and Elijah. 3rd out of 10? WE'LL TAKE IT! Both ponies were rockstars even after Elijah lost a shoe half way. Brantley and I lost our cinch strap while galloping through a field. I hopped off, fixed it, hopped on, and finished out the gallop. I still don't have it in me to let him go full out... Soon. Elijah put his water fears aside and slid right into the stream off the trail... Only up to his ankles of course.

We're happy with it!



So what do I do to get ready for the end of this career? Hit the mat again. It was much needed and I know I'll feel it tomorrow. A little late, but a few of us are preparing for our first obstacle course this coming Saturday... Tough Mudder? Spartan Race? Color Me Rad? OH HELL NO!


Totally worth watching. I'll let you know how it goes.


I'll be honest, Brantley basically had all week off and Zoe got a little more under saddle attention. I don't think he minded all that much minus our odd trail ride Sunday afternoon. Everything was pretty terrifying. We worked somethings out and I ended up dismounting and walking home. He seems quieter while we walking, I definitely just rushed into a ride before really preparing for him but I'm glad he took care of me as well as he could.

Today was grooming day... Wasn't quite sure if the storm was going to hit or not.
On and off lightning strikes and thunder, so round pen work will do.

Per usual, people stopped and watching. As Amanda says, he works off amazing "Jedi Mind Tricks" so people who don't know what's going on are in complete awe. Body communication at it's best!

Then we had some fun with Autumn, N's daughter. B was so interested in the mini ATV, we thought we'd put it to work. I was definitely waaaay too heavy for it and ended up helping it go with my legs but Brantley almost picked up a jog chasing us. But tarps and blue barrels cut in half full of water? TERRIFYING!          ...jerk



Zoe is a doll... I love her. I love spending time with her.
When you can't see your best friend as often as you'd like,
her horse will have to do.


Better than laying on the beach all day in my opinion.

Sounds like some interesting stuff, love the idea of the Wipeout run. I like the idea of running in general. The fact of it not so much ;) Hunter pace sounds fun, glad your doing well.
