First Adventure of 2017


So a few things have happened since my last post. One being I dyed my hair... Pink. Like really pink. It's more of an ombre pink style because I needed to be able to put it up and tone it down a bit when applicable. But so far, everyone loves it. Especially me. I needed a pick me up for sure.


Brantley and I also went on our first pony adventure with some friends from Shannock too. I kept trying to back out because I've been so nervous but Grasa, being as awesome as she is, wouldn't give me the chance. B loaded up no issues and after a couple attempts to mount, I got on and we had a pretty awesome ride.


There were a lot of obstacles to deal with that this time last year Brantley would have lost my in the snow for sure. Lots of overgrown and/or fallen trees and bushes to bolt through. We survived which gives me even more insight to the awesome year to come. We had to cross a few bridges that he's only seen in the Spring and crossed through a small body of water since the bridge was too sketchy to cross. The first time going through I laughed at the girls because they're feet ended up getting wet while Brantley was a bit taller than their ponies and I stayed dry... Until we walked back through coming home and he fell into a hole within the pool and it went up to his chest. A little chilly but he was a champ.


Of course like every year, half the video got lost during import but I got the first half so that's pretty good right? After our ride and taking care of the horses, we went to dinner... And then I felt old (we were tired by 8:30pm) and I had the bright idea of spending the rest of the night at the tattoo shop.

You think I'm joking...


The one tattoo I've wanted since I was 16... Now it's number 5.

It was a pretty spectacular day all around and I can't wait to get out there again, hopefully with Wendy too. I miss our adventures the most. I've kept up with being consistent in my riding and we had another little jump school yesterday which I was happy about. 2'6 doesn't look so big anymore that's for sure. I'd be happy getting comfortable with 2'9 and competing at 2'6 by the end of the season. I think that's a fair goal.




This coming weekend is pretty crazy but luckily starting Saturday night, Chevy can start spending the night with me at the job I have. I actually think most of the jobs I have coming up, I'll be able to snuggle with him every night and I can't wait! He's such a good-doobie. And suave AF for sure... This is his new way of rolling through town in the truck:


You can't get anymore gangsta than that.

I've been writing up my goal list and I will hopefully be able to make a post about it this week if I can find time like I have at this moment. It's a bit doubtful but there's always hope! Hopefully will fit a ride in tomorrow and Thursday before the insanity that will ensue this weekend! Bring on Spring and Pony Adventures. I'm so ready!
