    I IMG_2468.PNG IMG_2469.JPG IMG_2490.jpg IMG_2492.jpg IMG_2497.JPG Haven't been active on here lately. Growing up, boyfriend, career, horses .... not much time to get on here much but I have been lurking here and there.

    However today I had the most amazing ride on T. We ended soft and stretchy and relaxed and straight. It was an awesome feel. He has grown up so much. Such a puppy dog too. I let my nonhorsey boyfriend get up on him and he meanders around like a saint.

    He was a tough baby. This is not a naturally balanced horse, and man is he sensitive. But I've finally figured out the right diet, the right training regimin, fixed his feet, addressed all soreness...

    But now all the hard work is paying off! He is becoming absolutely a doll to ride. He is becoming the gentleman I always knew he could be since the first time I saw him.

    I'm just so happy with him !! We have come a long way, and I have learned... A LOT !

    That's what it's all about. All you have to do is find a great horse, keep him sound, put in a ton of blood, sweat and tears, work with the best coaches, ride all the time, and pray to the patron saint of horses - easy, right?!
