She really tried today (Friday March 7th). We both have A LOT to work on before we consider ourselves show ready however. She was very stop and go today so I was thrown around a bit, but I like to keep a soft contact on her mouth because she was abused. She has ZERO muscle right now so we did a couple laps of trot each way. She tries her heart out, I really do love that about her. I haven’t ridden in a month? And I’ve only ridden 3-4 times in the last six months so yes my heel needs to be deeper, shoulders back, elbows bent, hands corrected etc. We’re working on it!
First ride in the new saddle! It was raining -.-
Lacey sometimes like to lunge with her head down? It’s weird. I have a weird horse.
Lacey and I on our warm up walk down the driveway with my barn owner today!
My jacket makes me look fat
Can someone please tell me who this is? :o
I’m pretty sure it’s Albert Voorn - if not, it’s someone from the Netherlands (they wear orange jackets in Nations Cup), it’s at La Baule, not sure which year though. The horse looks like Tobalio - Same sock on the hind leg and I think I can see some sort of a star there.
Reblogging again because his leg doesn’t even moveThe longer I watch this the more unreal it looks
the way the horse’s legs snap up omg
That lower leg gets me every time
We’re slowly getting places. We definitely have A LOT to work on but I’m really proud of her. She’s had 6 months off (saddle/chiro issues) and she went pretty well (for her) today! This was her first ride in a saddle faster than a walk in 6 months.
I have to be up at 8:30 am tomorrow on a Saturday for a tack sale. I’m sad now because I want to stay up but tomorrow it will be worth it (hopefully).
horsesornothing - they did the ‘string’ test with her and if it’s true she would be 16.2-16.3hh and she acts exactly like her. She’s 14.3hh at one year and two months.
trottingthroughthesnow - oh god I know right?!
Paisley! Wholey crap she looks amazing guys! I love her owners for sending me updates like this. She looks SO much like Lacey.
Please DO NOT reblog! Thanks :)
