We also have two new members of the family…because Val officially bought Brady and Charlie! (which her husband will never know about). Brady has two half-leasers on him right now, and he’ll end up being Jake’s pony eventually when he’s older. Charlie has 2 kids shareboarding him as well and showing him this season, and Val’s eventually going to re-sell him once he has some more show miles on him.
Super pumped about all this since I thought we were going to lose Brady and I wouldn’t get to ride my perfect little man anymore, and Charlie’s a good backup for me to do my eq. and medals on since he can do the 3 foots, and I can always fill the hunters on him if I need too since there aren’t a whole lot of am. adults.
I’m tired and I want sleep and I want to go home. Is that too much to ask for? (and maybe a lot of money and some perfect horses would be nice too idk)
Had a gymkhana at the barn a few weekends ago as a fundraiser, A and I did the tandem bareback on Zeke who wasn’t super thrilled about his involvement in all this.
Also got to see C last weekend when she came up for the IHSA show which was much-needed (and she got 2nd in one of her flats!), although seeing her may have made me miss her more.
Spent Saturday night at AH’s house with all the girls and had a fantastic time, helped get my mind off some things.
Yesterday was my first day on my new horse assignment, Cash. Fancy and I haven’t been seeing eye-to-eye…two weeks ago she dumped me (stupid spook, I wasn’t prepared for it), then proceeded to buck on the lunge line like she’d never had a saddle on her back before for about 10 straight minutes. Last Tuesday she got me off twice in my lesson; first time was totally my bad, didn’t have enough leg going to the jump and she stopped and I ate major dirt. Second time was her just being a brat, dirty stopped and slammed me on my back. Then she refused to go back over it for a couple minutes so we had to have a bit of a discussion.
Anyway, she gets so excited jumping anyways that my instructor’s worried about me messing up my knee even more than it already is and she wanted to see me be able to participate in more of the lesson, so she switched me.
I think Cash will definitely be a good one for me to ride, as far as having to be super subtle with my aids since he’s so sensitive and barely touching his mouth at all; since I have a tendency to nit-pick it’s certainly going to fix that.
