Figured I would do a little blogging while I sip this cup of super hot tea. Anyone else out there tea drinkers? I go through waves where I drink a lot and I'm not quite sure if it helps me sleep or not but it sure doesn't hurt. And it's a little bit better for… Continue reading Keep Calm…
Sometimes I just like to spend time in the dirt with my own thoughts listening to the wind howl through the cracks in the indoor. Safest place to sit? Probably not. But there's something incredibly comforting knowing that even though there are scary monsters out there this time of year... he'd rather just sit… Continue reading And We’re Back!
When I pack up after a long week of overnights, I always mumble and grumble asking myself why. Why am I doing this? Why did I pick this? Will I ever sleep in my own bed again... Or hell... Will I ever have my own apartment at this point? But I turned around this time… Continue reading Holiday Countdown
A little lost... I've definitely ridden Cody more than my own horse. You'd think I could say, "Well at least I'm in the saddle" but mentally, it's not the same. Although having my little shadow with me is a definite plus, it's not the same. I keep burying myself in work and not even purposely.… Continue reading Lost…
Thanksgiving always brings late nights and early mornings... Too late... And too early. I think I averaged about 3.5 hours of sleep from Wednesday through Monday morning. Thanksgiving Day wasn't even the craziest of days... It was more the weekend. You don't really think about how much people travel that time of year but holy… Continue reading Some Saddle Time
After the trial last weekend we definitely took it easy the following week. I went out for a couple great trail rides with the pup in tow and for once Brantley seemed completely content just standing and talking to strangers for a bit which is new. Usually he'll dance around wanting to keep walking but… Continue reading Downtime
Will I ever get tired of this? Especially now that we brought home a little satin this time? Yay for schooling shows and super awesome judges right? It's the white breeches. I think they're my new lucky breeches. Or the snazzy C4 belt, I can't really decide. All I know is that Brantley was an… Continue reading Another One Down!
Oh hey guys. I'd like to apologize for my oddness of my last two posts and ridiculous picture size. I'm still getting used to the WordPress app on my phone because I was computer-less for a few days. Sunday was the Blessing of the Horses with a 10-mile ride. The BO and our friend Candance… Continue reading Memberships?
I'm still a little high from Sunday... ridiculous I know. But can you blame me? Look at my boy... he's so happy and ready to get sh*t done. We haven't been doing too much this week. Monday came around and the farrier showed up. I guess I forgot an appointment that we made last week?… Continue reading Still A Little High
So here's my horse being a BAMF in the warm up ring before our Stadium round... Yup... The unrideable horse over-jumping what is supposed to be a 2' vertical but honestly, I didn't get down to measure. I was definitely nervous. I had never done anything like this before and our issue of the year… Continue reading AKF 3-Phase : 4.23.17
