CANT STOP WONT STOP


I rode a little harder than I should have yesterday.


I opened a can of worms that I can't control. Cant stop wont stop. YOU CANT KEEP A GIRL FROM HER HORSES OKAY SORRY NOT SORRY DOCTOR.

Luckily. I don't feel any worse for the wear. Minus being a little sore in the buttcheeks and core. Who knew taking 3 weeks off would make you sore in places you didn't even know existed -_-

Now just for those with your judgey pants on, I HAVE been riding bareback or with long stirrups so as to not jack my leg up and stretch the damaged muscle more....and haven't "jumped" anything. Minus ditches. They don't count. hehe.

I've mostly been putzing around on Lilly bareback because she is so smoothe, and lunging/hacking B & Yankee.


 CAN WE PLEASE take a minnut to appreciate my baby. I don't know how I got so lucky. Five year old OTTB and he so uphill and light already, even without a rider. Love horse.

I DID discover something wicked cool though the other day while cantering Lil.

She is so NICE

whoa what is dis?
WHY YES that would be a SLIDING STOP....how freaking cool??

I knew she was an ex-reiner but I didn't think she would remember it. Granted its nothing compared to the ass-to-the-floor stuff you see in competitions but for an old gal it sure was impressive.

I was riding the canter and asked her to slow by sitting back and just saying whoa and BAM sliiiiide. I was so surprised I almost fell off, ha! She doesn't even need much hand, just a light tug and shiiiit booty twerk.

I am obsessed now.

I know I am supposed to be re-training her english, but I couldn't pass up the opp for some photos to show his owner! He loved it!

Spiiiiiiin


So that was fun.

I am distracting myself from all the updates on social media about events and clinics and lessons because I really want to be doing all that, but I am content to play right now :)

Oh also I got a job. A real person job. Yay?

  4. Congrats on the job! Also very cool about Lily!! I want to ride a reiner someday. :D When I was a kid I got to ride one once, but the first time she tried to spin it freaked me out and I never did it again LOL! I want to try again now that I would know what to expect. :) I'm glad you're having fun with them and your leg is doing okay. :D
