Happiness & Sadness

First off, I have been forgetting to thank everyone for all the well-wishes for both the beast and myself! It is GREATLY appreciated <3 p="">
Secondly, more earth-shattering news ahead.

I rode my horse.

At a walk.

IT. WAS. GREAT.

Heres another pic of my horse standing there being adorable as fuck
Never in my life have I been more excited to go for a walking hack.

He felt really great actually. Quite forward and chipper. It was almost like he was happy to be back at work again. I am giddy that hes "back at it" WAY before expected.


I will admit that I couldn't resist asking for a little bit of trot. It too felt better than I expected, but far from great. I can definitely tell he's lost some muscle and he is extremely on the forehand. Like, really on the forehand. I can't blame the horse, his back feet have been killing him for weeks. But I think we are out of the woods and in the clear (s/o to TSwift) & just need to get back in shape.

I'm not going to go out and sign up for a bajillion fall shows, but I am excited to slowly rebuild our muscle together and heal.

Partners who heal together stay together.

Happy ears

Lol at how small that saddle is for me. I was also wearing my new Piper breeches and have a few words to say about them. Look forward to a product review on them!

Speaking of words, My bad luck seems to be running away with me because my BRAND NEW Fitbit fell off while I was riding at the fucking walk and got absolutely destroyed by a vehicle.

Seriously? Like, really?
What kind of FITNESS band falls off randomly? Especially a brand new one? I am crushed, much like my Fitbit and the company may or may not have heard a few words from me. And they weren't sweet as pie thaaats for sure. I am a reasonable human, but come on.

  1. Oh yay we can do the build up muscle routine together. I am almost afraid to say it but I think Steady is ready to use all four feet again!

  2. My MIL lost her Fitbit in the first week bc it fell off. Appareny they sell these bands they advise you put over the snap. Not okay in my book.

  3. I'm considering getting a misfit because they're like 30 bucks and have a buckle. I have a jawbone up right now and while it doesn't fall off the place where it overlaps catches on everything.

    1. I had one of those and loved it minus the fact that it was always malfunctioning. I went through 3 before I gave up

  6. Hopefully those "few words" about the Pipers are good words :)

    Also, I totally feel you on looking forward to a walking hack....I'm right there myself. TOMORROW I WILL RIDE ROGER AT THE WALK AND IT WILL BE JOYOUS.

    Anyways, welcome back!
