I’m riding Tuesday but I might not be as active because school is stressing me out. I’m pretty smart when it comes to animals and English as well as history but I am not very good at math. I had the best math teacher but she got a better job so I was switched to a horrible math teacher and he has high expectations which won’t work for my math abilities. He teaches differently than all the other teachers and it’s not the way I learn at all so I’m trying to switch out to someone more understanding. I know it sounds like I’m being petty but I know for a fact I will flunk math this year if I’m not in a class that is more understanding and will work with me. I barely pasted math last year so this year will be even harder so I need extra help. I’m just about caught up with my work and the last thing I need is an AP Calculus teacher that expects more than all the other math teachers or average students. -

I’m not riding this weekend so I won’t have much to post but this pony is super adorable tho. She’s very sensitive especially around her nose but she got more comfortable with me as we were training. Sage is going to be an amazing pony one day, she rides very well on events when she isn’t all worked up. I really like working with her, she wasn’t super into the treats but she was still wanting to learn anyway. By the end of our session she already was improving a lot sense the beginning.

Hey guys! So I went to the barn today and Rosie wasn’t there. My trainer told me she was being used this weekend but I didn’t know that meant Friday too. Anyway I got to work with this little red pony Sage. I was teaching her to spin and I think she did very well! I also work her on ground tying. Don’t be too judgmental bc I’ve never taught a horse ground work before. I didn’t want her to cross step behind her leg so I backed her a bit so she would cross in front and she got it pretty good. I think she made progress throughout the vid. She is a very fun pony to work with. Enjoy our little video! -

I got some pics of my new saddle sack today! I went to ride in the evening since today was pretty hot. It felt nice and was the perfect riding temperature so Rosie and I enjoyed it. I decided to try a new training method with Rosie to motivate her and help her enjoy running events as much as I do. It worked very well and she was super excited to run events, especially poles! I rewarded her with a treat after a run if she did the best of her ability and listened to my riding cues. She ran her heart out for me today in poles! I could hear the loud thundering of her hooves as we ran to the end pole and it was amazing! We improved drastically on our turns but sadly no pole vids. I am so proud of her for really stepping it up today, this is our warm up barrel run from this evening. Sorry if this is kinda long.

No one will ever forget the most devastating terrorist attack in American history. Everyone that I have talked to can tell me exactly what they were doing the day of the attack and exactly how they felt. Watching documentaries on it feels like living through the event as a spectator as if it was happening all over again. So many innocent people died and were injured including 343 firefighters and 71 police. I don’t think that people who weren’t there know enough about what happened this tragic day. I was very disappointed when my school announcements didn’t mention 9/11 whatsoever. The addressed the day as September 11, 2019 instead of 9/11 and moved right along with the stupid school spirit crap. It made me feel better when kids in the class were upset about it too and wanted to take a moment of silence. It was very disrespectful what they did and the school doesn’t seem to understand the significance of that day. No one expected the twin towers to come crashing down and kill over 2,000 people and injure 6,000 others. The whole city was dead silent people said they could hear a pin drop, something like that is never forgotten. #neverforget -

I rode in my lesson with Rosie today and the weather was awesome and there was even a small breeze. Before that I rode one of the green ponies in training named Tipsy. She only knows basics right now so I did manage to get her to lope a bit which was cool. I got my new saddle sack but I didn’t get pics so I’ll get some on Thursday. While I was finishing up running poles an alarm went off on my phone and I looked and it was about to automatically call 911 so I quickly stopped it. It got stuck in my saddle sack and some how both the side power button and the volume button were both held down long enough for the alarm to set off. So that was awesome, and I am really stuffed up and am having a hard time breathing so that’s cool too. On the up side I had an awesome barrel run probably one of the best in a long time and poles was better. We are slowly improving. As you can see Vegas got his mane cut, he has always been able to pull this look off. He was happy to see me and I was happy to see him, I loved stroking his shaved mane.

I finally got some riding videos! This was our speed barrel run from today and she did awesome! Rosie has been off from running events for a little over a week and she did very well. We practiced jumping a lot and she did fine but I don’t know why she won’t jump at the shows. I’m going to try something different at my next one and see how that turns out. I’m feeling better about our turn ms but I just need to keep her off the barrel and maintaining speed.

The kids were using Rosie so I rode @burnin_whiskey ‘s horse to the canals and in the arena. We went down to the orchard and my trainer said we could go down the tree gaps. I loped Whiskey down all the way and he did really well! Then I kinda got lost lol but I eventually found my way back to the group, but I had to go through a ton of branches to get there. Whiskey was a little saint for going through the very over grown parts even though he was a bit nervous. After that we rode in the arena and I trotted and loped him around. I got to run speed barrels and he had a snappy turn which I liked a lot. My trainer said I did really good so that made me feel great. He looks so good in my tack set and everything fit him super well! It was fun riding him again. -

Hey guys I didn’t get any new pictures today or videos but I’m riding tomorrow for my make up lesson so I will definitely get pictures and possibly videos it’s just hard since I don’t have anyone to record very often. Rosie has been off for a week since I was sick and put out in the pasture so she got fat again. Three cinch holes fatter in a week and I’m not exaggerating so she was moved back into a stall. She is ready to run now so I hope she isn’t too lazy tomorrow. I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! -

Ok so I’m gonna try posting again and if you guys are active on my account I’ll keep posting everyday to every other day. This is from my little photo shoot with Vegas last night. I don’t look great because I’m sick but I don’t care. I didn’t ride because my mom insisted I rest so I just cleaned and hung out with Vegas in his stall. I was probably with him for around an hour just chilling and talking to him. I really missed doing that with him and I was so happy that he let me stand there and hug him. I would walk around the stall and he would follow me everywhere then I crouched down and he would put his head next to mine as I leaned on him and watched the sun go down. I know that’s really cheesy but there just happened to be a sun set visible from his stall  I still haven’t ridden him recently but he was at my last show and someone was riding him in it. I was very surprised and concerned at the same time bc I know how he is. The women riding him just walked and light trotted through the patterns and he did some sassy bucks. I don’t know why but he just doesn’t like to be told what to do, I talked to her and she didn’t like him very much. I still love him with all my heart though  so there is a Vegas update for you. -

So the show was super fun and I’m glad to be competing again. This weekend wasn’t exactly what I expected but wasn’t too bad. The first day was a success, I won 2nd place I think in High point for A division and placed in AA as well. The second day wasn’t as successful, starting off with hurry scurry Rosie did as I predicted and refused. I was pretty pissed about that since she jumped fine at home and the jumps at the competition looked exactly like ours. She was being very lazy a lot of the time but Big T seemed to perk her up a bit we did well on a good amount of events. The only other run that was disappointing was my barrel run, I knocked the second barrel. I am having a hard time getting her to go past the barrels, it’s a little frustrating but we did end up with good times in other events. I hope we can work on adding speed but I will say that the heat wasn’t helping much, I put Rosie in the shade as much as possible so we both felt cooler. I hope we go again soon and Rosie will be more motivated to run events next time. -

I went to ride this evening a little before the show this weekend to practice jumping for hurry scurry and it actually went well! She attempted to refuse once the first time but I was really pushy with her and she went over them no problem after that. We jumped both directions and it was awesome! Rosie is riding really good I just need to tweak a couple riding habits I have and we are good to go! I can’t wait to show again and look forward to hanging out with @burnin_whiskey. I’ll update you guys tomorrow if there are changes or Saturday evening most likely. -

This is my barrel run from my last competition at Circle D that some people wanted to see and honestly looking back at it I think we could do so much better. We did good for my first competition and now that I am use to riding her and have been working with her I think I will be a better jockey to her this time around. So I am definitely going to the show this weekend with @burnin_whiskey and it is her first competition with her horse! I am going to go ride on Thursday hopefully and attempt to jump on Rosie so she won’t refuse them again at the show but who know me how that will go. I’m giving her Friday off before we go on Saturday so we will both be rested. -

Oh my gosh today’s lesson was amazing! Everything went so well and everything felt like it was going right and even perfect at times. We really crushed it today and I’m so proud, I’m not usually one to brag about a ride but it was amazing! Our third barrel was so on point and total  we also had an amazing first and second barrel as well! It was probably the best barrel run we’ve ever done! I’ve been having quite a few or those runs in poles lately. Our pole runs were pretty good today too and have improved so much in the past few weeks. I’m so thankful that I get to lease an amazing horse like Rosie and am really figuring her out now along with her riding quirks. Also I’m super excited that I might be able to take Rosie to a horse show this weekend! My parents will be out of town so I will see if  I can get a ride down there. -

The bond between a rider and horse...it’s indescribable. We communicate with these beautiful creatures without speaking a single word to one another. We memorize each other’s body language and learn to read one another’s emotions and we smile and share good times with them. We make them feel safe and protect them as they do us if we are worthy enough. With this incredible way of communication we are successful at what we do. Horses let us ride on their backs and don’t throw us off everyday because they choose not to, not because we force them. Reading each other’s body language helps us guide our equine partners to be incredible at their jobs and if done correctly you both will fly. You become inseparable from one another and enjoy making each other happy. The little moments you share with your horse become the most important and memorable that you won’t trade for anything. Every ride is precious, the ride you took today is one you will never get back so cherish that. Make the most of every moment you get with your best friend because that’s what you will look back on when they have moved on from earth. All equestrians have one thing is common no matter what discipline... our love of horses and our equine partners. The people I have respected most in this world are the ones that would do anything for their horse. Remember to go give your horse some love everyday and always make time for them because they give all of theirs to you. -

I did go to ride tonight and ended up going late at like 7 because we had some guests over today. It took a while to clean my stall so I had a limited amount of time to ride since it is already getting dark earlier by a half hour  There was a nice cool breeze and it felt so good! Rosie felt good too and absolutely loved the weather, she was super energetic and excited to run. She gave me a killer pole run and it was probably the best run I’ve ever done so I’m kinda bummed I didn’t get it on video. Her turns were nice and snappy and weaving through the poles was very flowing, only slightly grazing one pole but it didn’t move. She got really frisky when I let her run on speed barrels and was booking it all the way! It was an amazing ride and I love the weather I just hope it lasts. -
