We got off to quite the start when P finally threw me into the wall as a rather loud protest to trot work.
|P, wondering what the hell I'm doing on the ground in a lump|
My back kept me out of commission for a while, but Super-Mom came up and saved the day (again) proving that P was capable of not being a total mare-wolf
|worked well for Supermom..|
|Total field trip success.|
We got back to work (in our air vest) on the buckle. P was a lover, tried hard and we moved forward. P was my valentine.
P tried to eat her farrier, caused a general ruckus at the barn, and was a gem under saddle
We prepared to come off the Regumate high and see how P was. She was.. the same. Still sticky, still unhappy undersaddle and still... totally sound.
The barn had a baby, a CCI**** eventer moved in and P started throwing shoes.
We got a second opinion and found our new vet. It rained. it rained some more. We decided to move P to Summer Camp. It rained some more. I bought boots for a horse I wasn't riding. It rained. P and I hand walked, grazed and worked on Targeting.
(it rained some more). P looked like a tank
P adjusted to life at Camp and started her work of playing with others
|we have withers!|
P doesn't understand why she's so dirty, but she's did great.
P learned how to be a trail horse and was ponied allllll over the place. I got to ride Wendy :)
Dad flew me to see P (cute as ever) and we went for a trail ride.
P gets good at her join up work, and I don't need a halter!
Oh yeah, and I RODE MY HORSE AGAIN. Out in a big field, yahoo!
and the boy had fun too...
Life got in the way and I hardly saw my horse (sad). But I did see her and P started working more under saddle with harder questions. Creeks, patience, beaches.. all very exciting.
I start seriously horse hunting, the dog is diagnosed with Wobblers and I RIDE P ON THE BEACH
Oh yeah, and we added Prairie to the mix. (just barely squeaked that one into 2011)
Happy New Year
Wow,I just caught up and Prairie Girl is just gorgeous! I missed what breed she is.ReplyDelete
And where are you going in Africa? My younger sister lives in Cape Town, South Africa and its just insanely gorgeous there!
I'm so excited for you! The year started off rough, but you found a solution and stuck it out. Kudos girl. I'm so looking forward to reading more about both mares in the year to come. :DReplyDelete
