Anonymous asked: so this is awks but i followed you obviously from the 365 horse days, and was just on my friend's facebook and saw taht you're totally friends with her! it's weird because i live in canada and she lives in texas and you live in california. which i only know because i had clicked your name to look at your horse, which is in your profile pic. which sounds super creepy. but i'm...
Lacey's leg is warm and swollen again... :(
She is totally sound so I still got on and just walked out on the trail (pathway along the river behind our barn) It was our first time going out there by ourselves (third time overall) and she was so good :) even when a flock of pigeons flew right at us! the only thing that scared her was walking back through the automatic gate to get back into the barn!!!! lol
I really cant love my mare anymore than I do
paintobsessed: For the past month the only time she has been ridden was this past tuesday and the weather has changed a lot in the past week (dropping like 25/30 degrees). I was expecting a crazy mare for my lesson this morning but no she was relaxed slow and just like perfect!! She had some moments when something outside the ring would distract her, but wouldnt break stride or anything just...
Live.Love.Horses: Rode Lacey finally today!! →
paintobsessed: First ride in 2 weeks! She was really good :) We just had a flat lesson and she was a little sticky at the beginning (like she starts to move then just halts like umm nevermind! lol) But once we got her through that she was really good and you probably would have never guess she had just had two…
Lacey was interesting today...
She hasnt been ridden since Wednesday but usually that means that she is extra lazy lol Then also it was so hot today (like 105 when I was riding) I really was hoping she would be quite and with the heat didnt want to over do it so didnt lunge her. Well she likes to get sassy in the heat….. The beginning of our lesson was not pretty and I was expecting a disaster of a lesson but finally...
Love my horse so much :)
So I suck at this blog sorry about that!! Yesterday I had a lesson with Lacey and we jumped for the first time (other than a single jump) since she got out here to Cali. We ended up having an hour and a half lesson!! I must say my horse has pretty good stamina! The ground work Kim has been having me work on is making a huge difference in Lacey! It funny how I feel like she has grown more in...
Great first ride tonight!!
paintobsessed: For her second day out here and her first ride she was seriously amazing! Had 3 little temper tantrums about not wanting to walk by things but got over them all very quickly. The only problem we will probably still have for a while is walking down the hill from the ring to the barn….she really hates that and its by the cows which doesnt help but if that they biggest problem we...
I am so proud on how much Lacey has grown up!!!
I took her to the show on Sunday and she didnt really look at anything and no stops which is progress from the last show! We even took her over to the jumper ring during a warmup and jumped around a little and still nothing fazed her!!! We ended up 5th, 7th, and 8th out of 11 o/f and 5th out of 10 in the under saddle :) Our transitions SUCKED in the u/s so I was extremely happy with 5th!...
Sorry for like deserting this blog :( I will try to get on it! I hacked Lacey today after I worked at camp. I was so tired but luckily she was really very good! I had taken a crop in case she was lazy but after the first lap could tell I didnt need it but when I went to put it on the fence Lacey got scared and started rearing…. At that point I was like shit this should be an...

Lacey coliced last night :( It was just a slight impaction colic that we caught very early. I checked on her throughout the night and stayed with her most of today. By the time I left the barn today she was totally back to her normal self! I am heading off to LA now for a week :( but have friends checking in on her for me. She really picked a horrible time. The vet came by late this...

Live.Love.Horses: Good show today :) →
paintobsessed: Ryan was beyond amazing!! I mean he has SOOO much more to learn but for where he is he is doing so well!!! I am just watching the videos and well it felt better than it looked, but all of out tests ended up being in the mid 60s so I was very pleased!!! We even got a few 8s!!!! I didnt even get an… so so so proud of the boy!!
And I talked Cathy fianlly into upping Ryan’s grain. He has gone from no work to being ridden 5-6 days a week so he is gaining muscle but his ribs are coming out again. Poo pony needs to gain like another 200 or so pounds! But he is officially shinny soft and perfect for tomorrow!! :) Time to get ready for Devons party and hopefully some sleep too lol
Had my first lesson on Ryan today!
I took a dressage lesson on RyRy this morning and he was so amazing! At the walk and trot at least but hes still learning how to really balance himself at the canter. But seriously walk and trot so good!!! I am planning on showing him in out dressage show next weekend. Cathy wants me to do Training Test 1 and 2, but I would much rather do Into Test 2 and 3 and if those go well than maybe do...
Well yesterday Ryan was a bit of a turd and it took me over 1/2 and hour to catch him….so I decided it was a long lunge and side reins day! Yeah hopefully he wont be a jerk in the paddock again!! lol He also did trot and canter poles and was definitely tired by the time we were done but was really a good boy when he was working! Today he was being used in two beginner lessons (yeah...
standoffsighs-deactivated201210 asked: your horse has an amaaazing neck! she's beautiful :)
Rode Mr. RyRy today :)
he was such a good boy!! I of course started him out on the lunge line and also introduced him to some trot poles. He actually got it really quickly but I set them a little far apart so I moved them closer to make him have to collect himself through them and he got it on his second try!! and after that his trot overall was better! Also I cantered him on the lunge line and he once again held...
So since it is so hard to post about Lacey while I am not with her, I have decided to make this blog about Ryan starting April 17th - May 14th. After that I will be back with Lacey and it will go back to being a blog about her. I will be working with Ryan a few times before the 17th and I will post when I do!! So a little about Ryan. He is an ~6 yr old Quarter Horse. He was broke western...
