We were supposed to have thunderstoms all day.   We got nothing of the sort.  High of 68 and sunny!  Windy, yes, but goregous day.  I felt like crap all day, sore throat, congested and drained.  I willed myself to get out and ride.  I feared that if I passed up today that it would only put our lessons learned from yesterday farther in his memory. 

Steady reminded me today why I do this and why I love him.  He must have spent the night getting his spiritual self right with God because he was a different horse today.  Remember I said it was windy?  Like really windy but even still he did not offer to buck even one time!!  He was a bit spooky and occassionally looky but over all paying attention and moving off of my aides.  It is not beautiful work but that is to be expected after such a long season off.  Rough around the edges but clearly a diamond in the rough.  I am so glad I made myself get out there today because I feel amazing now!  2012 is gonna be a big year for us, I can feel it!!!  Though he did have me worried there for a minute with yesterdays antics.

Here is the short term plans to get things started this year.  Spend March working toward being able to be seen in public again.  April take a lesson and xc school.  May first show of the year at BN (not %100 where though)  I think that will make a great start to the year.


  1. Kudo's for getting out there! Love the goals and let me know where\when you show and I'll try to show up.

  2. Sounds like a great plan and I'm glad he was better today. Silly boy. :)


Steady and I love your feedback, so don't be shy!
