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 weather here has been SO NICE recently! Such a nice change from the frozen wasteland of a few weeks ago. I really hope the rest of this winter is very mild. I have things to do, horses to ride, grass to grow.  When I got back from Florida a few weeks ago, I had […]

The Weanling Field Dance

We planned this weekend to get the babies trailer loading. That didn’t go to plan. But, one thing I’d learned with horses is doing some ambitious plan will force me what we need to work on.  In this case, we were walking them up to the trailer, through the big field that the horses are […]

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. […]
