I finally did it. I finally got to ride my horse last night. We just cruised around walk, trot, canter with the only intension of sitting there and enjoying it. I know he had three months off but I thought, "Why are you so stiff..." Oh wait... It's me, I'm the problem. This horse mirrors… Continue reading I did the thing…
Ok. It’s Wednesday. 🐫
I really have been trying to work on getting those Tuesday night posts up. I missed my Friday night "writing prompt" post this past week too but in my defense, that hasn't completely locked in just yet. Plus I was exhausted and mega cranky so it would have had a very negative spin. My excuse… Continue reading Ok. It’s Wednesday. 🐫
That blinking cursor gets me every time. Especially when there hasn't been any changes or exciting adventures to be had just yet. But I made myself a promise and it's Tuesday night so here we are. Another week has gone by and I'm just itching to ride. We got hit with a slight cold snap… Continue reading Another Week
Day Late, A Few Dollars Short
I knew I was forgetting to do something last night as I stuffed a giant burrito into my mouth around 8:45 last night. Most definitely paying for that today. But I have news!! Great news!! Exciting news!! The boys and I have been selected as Brand Ambassadors for some of our favorite products. If you… Continue reading Day Late, A Few Dollars Short
We did it. We had our first ride off property in almost a year. I tried to play it off like I wasn't nervous, but between being a raging *insert bad word here* the night before and then proceeding to dry heave in between mounting attempts, you could tell. I know that once I'm in… Continue reading First Rides
Something a horse person never really wants to pick up from CVS... That and epsom salts. It's just a sign of lots of swearing to come as well as being splashed in the face with a used-to-be warm betadine/water solution. Throw some icthammol ointment in there and you've got yourself a party for sure. Unfortunately… Continue reading Bombs Away
This Is 33.
"Do not complain about growing old. It is a privilege denied to many." - Mark Twain I've never complained about growing older before. It's always been more of a question and wonder that I made it. Another year getting through what life throws at me while picking up whatever I can, and running with it.… Continue reading This Is 33.
There's something to be said about having a 9-5 job. It's different that's for sure but being able to shut down when your shift is over has been a magnificent and much needed change for me. We are also still just in training but I'm excited to get on the floor and start on the… Continue reading Stability
Let The Year Begin
Sometimes you order something soft and adorable off Amazon trusting that the description is real because you know, it's not like you're blindly ordering off of Wish. You trust that it was made for you since it says "women's" even though you find out it definitely fits your dog better than it fits you... and… Continue reading Let The Year Begin
A Quiet Christmas
Stella in all her winter glory Finally a bit of snow to get excited about! It almost lasted until Christmas but at least I got a good fix before the warm weather came back. I'm that weird horse girl where yeah, ice and snow at the barn can be a complete pain in the butt… Continue reading A Quiet Christmas
