Finally, I Ride Again

It’s been a while since I rode. The last time was at a polo lesson last August. The last time I rode Berry was a few months before that, although I can’t remember exactly when it was. Late Spring, I would guess.  I hadn’t been riding Berry because of the trailering incident. I probably rode […]

Working on Transitions

riding lesson

I had a lesson over the weekend focused on making smooth transitions. It wasn’t so much that it was hard, but just something that isn’t always focused on, so I think it was good to work on it. It had its good points and its bad points. Good point – Berry is holding herself much […]

Very Tired

I took a bit of an unplanned hiatus from blogging. I think it’s only been a few weeks, but it feels like it’s been years since the last time I posted. I am just SO TIRED recently. It feels like I have so much to do, and there’s just never enough time to do it, […]

Introduction to Stadium Jumping

I recently joined a riding club, and their lessons are helpfully labeled by the topic of the lesson. So for my first lesson, I choose “Introduction to Stadium Jumping,” because it seemed like a safe option, while still maybe presenting a little challenge. I haven’t had a lesson for a while, but I can physically […]

First Ride of the Year

The last time I rode was in a lesson at the beginning of December. My goodness, how time flies! I’m definitely looking forward to the longer days of sunshine! And I’ll need to take advantage of every moment I have, as I signed up for two lessons in February through a riding club I joined. They […]

The Herd

This long weekend was a fun weekend of visitors! And I popped up on Eventing Nation! I have officially peaked, it’s time to retire. Shelby came back up, and naturally, she had to see the little babies. I think she was a hit with them.    Stubert and Shelby doing the official muzzle bump greeting. […]

The Maiden Voyage

I had the trailer, I had some time, so it was time to use the trailer. I didn’t have any purpose to go anywhere, but I needed to test it out!  The first part of my new trailering experience was loading up the dressing room. To someone who already has a dressing room, this may […]

The Great Pony Escape

Check it out, you guys! I made a YouTube video! This is the first time that I filmed footage specifically to create a YouTube video, and I’m not too unhappy with the results!  It’s footage from when I went riding a few weeks ago, and my sly little Pony got out when I was putting […]

My First Jumper Show

A friend talked me into doing a jumper show last weekend. I initially thought, but, I do hunters, but then I decided it didn’t really matter and I’m going to do it anyway. It’d be fun! It was a fun experience, but I do need to make some changes to make the next one much […]

Ups and Downs

The weekend was off to a great start. I went riding with a friend, and I schooled Berry over some jumps, practicing landing on the correct lead. She got it 75% of the time. Progress! Maybe I can do that instead of those blasted lead changes! Berry was practicing holding her head at a slant. […]
