Happy New Year

Wow!  I cannot believe I have let so much time go by without updating my blog.  It's not that I haven't been riding because I have.  Regularly too!  Boo and I are still working on rhythm, suppleness, and connection.  I think we may be working on that forever.  Boo knows how to do it...I sometimes struggle.  When we have those three things going for us we go ahead and work on straightness and collection.  We can only manage that for short periods of time. 

I am much more comfortable on Bay now too.  I don't ride him as often as I ride Boo but we have come a long way together.  I have a couple of friends that help me keep Bay exercised.  I found I just couldn't keep up with both horses and still have time for anything else.  I was burning out.  The ladies help me on Monday and Wednesday.  I ride Bay on Friday, and the DH rides him on the weekends. He's been taking him to cow sorting clinics.  It's so funny.  He has gone from dressage horse to cow horse!  I think I have the DH interested in looking into western dressage. 

I'm still working on my photography.  Having a great time with it.  Looking forward to posting a few things here now and then.  I'm also looking forward to doing some reading and catching up on all the blogs. 


  1. Glad to hear you're going to do the photo challenge. Let me know how you decide to post them, I'd like to follow. I've got a list of other bloggers who are doing the same thing...we need to support each other!!!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Hello dear!
    Yes, sometimes life whooshes you away while others post!
    Sounds like you've done some other kind of "Posting".
    Happy New Year's greeting and I will be looking for you...If I actually sit here more!

  3. Western dressage sounds interesting to me as well, if I can ever just get back into the saddle. At the rate I am going it will be a sanctioned class at the Arab shows. LOL
