Spring still in the air!!!!!
NBHA shows are priority now that my honey is in his second year as Director for our district. I am the Web Admin, flyer maker, updater and points poster LOL. Here is a link to the goings on:
NO Southern Stockhorse this year as I sold my darling little Zoey back to the trainer to rehome.
We have widdled down to 5 horses and a mini.... mr DALLAS!
2 horses are currently on lease locally ~ Charlie at St. Andrews College doing very well for himself this past year and will be home by the end of the month for the summer but will return to college in the fall as they requested! YAY! (tho I may have to show him this summer just to see how his college education has has paid off!)
Bo is still with Billy who is still trying to get with him. Sadly I understand, it takes alot to get with that type of horse. Some days are better than others and you just co-habit and take the good with the bad. Which is why I have begrudgingly decided to part ways with my Sweet William.
He is sweet, kind, happy horse... but he leaves sometimes... and you cant get him back :(
I will miss him, and I will pray for him daily :(
So you understand there has been serious progress here with Willy.... this was my first run on this runaway who had issues with a bit, and once I put a hackamore on him ... we then made that progress :)
I just cant seem to muster up the stamina to maintain his level of inconsistancy, which in turn is from my level of inconsistancy unfortunately :( I just DONT DONT DONT want to work on "IT" every day, day in and day out... He reverts often, and when the switch goes off he just wont, WONT come back. The jigging and head tossing... I just want to enjoy my days in the saddle. I have two "OL Faithfuls" ~ Sally and now Cassidy (jeffs hand me down mare) who both ride and work the pattern the same... I am ready to work on myself, my ability to progress and enjoy our time. TRUST me ~ there is plenty to work on with both of them, even though they are almost automatic. BUT ... your seat, your timing and rider anticipation can screw up the whole 15 sec ride if you let it! so this year, I plan to stay out of thier way and letting them DO THEIR JOB!
Finally last year me & SALLY we getting it! ~
so if I can get even close on Cassidy .... hoooooooooooweeee that frieght train will be HONKING!
