So I still need to give out my award thing but it is hard to do from my iPad and will have to wait. Till then I well rant.
Urg I am tired of fake horse people. Seriously! Here is the thing - you can't just come out to the barn when the weather is good. You need to come out when the weather is bad, good and in between. Grrrr....! When you don't come out not only does it affect the people that have to take care of you horse for you but also your horse. They need attention and worked. Duhhh! What is even worse is when they show and work the horse as if it has been worked daily for the past year and should be jumping 3'.
This rant is not about any blogger, just a few local girls. Yes I know when someone boards their horse they may not get to see them every day or even every other day but once every two or three weeks does not work. I am not perfect by far. I work two jobs, shadow a nurse once a week, school full time and still manage to see Pippi six days a week and work her around two days a week. My mom always told me horse girls were the ones with horses on their backpack and notepads. Equestrians are the ones who are out cleaning stalls in the rain and dealing with frozen water buckets. If you don't have time for your horse or grow out of it as many people do sell your horse. So there, rant done.
Oh yeah I had another lesson. My trot is a beast! My canter....not so much. I can't seem to make my upper body still,mi tend to roll it.? Like I don't arch my back enough or something. It is not so bad on Pippi but the lesson horse is very different and I just can't seem to move with him. But I got to really jump for the first time. Last time it was like 18" but this time it was more like 2'3 or so. My trainer really likes me over the fence which is awesome. I am always worried about over fences. Not to fix that canter.
