Stretching









I did this yesterday after warm up and it really seemed to improve our lateral work and transitions.

I think I will keep doing this before every ride now.

I've had a very busy Spring Break...still haven't done any homework.

Been working overtime at work to try and get as many hours as possible and picked up 4 shifts at the barn as well. YAY!

Jumping today, off tomorrow, dressage Sunday!

ALSO, I will be drawing this for Stacey over at the Jumping Percheron. I will keep ya'll updated on the progress :)

8 days till Equine Affaire!

Sorry for the short post, but I have to be at work soon

Realization

I just realized...

I would do anything for my horses...

...my dogs...

...my cats...

I would work till my fingers were nubs.

Suffer at a shitty job for them.

Go hungry for them.

Spend lots of money that I don't have to keep them healthy and comfortable...

I will lose sleep till I collapse for them.

I will fail classes for them.

Because in the end they are all that matter.

They are ALWAYS there for me when I need them. A warm shoulder to lean on. A soft coat to cry on. A willing companion to talk to. Unconditional love some call it. I call it something more... an ultimate bond, a deep friendship.

They remind me that no matter how bad it seems (or good!) they will always be there. That is reassuring when all else seems out of control.

Nothing else really, truly matters to me....(well, the boyfriend too, of course.


Sure there are always bills to pay. People to call. Days to go to work, to school....but it's all for them, in my mind. They keep me happy and I love them!

Go hug your your pets...your horse. Be thankful!
