Horse shows, school, and snowdays

Hey guys! I apologize for not posting for so long... I think I should just go back to posting on this blog instead of my new one, because you guys seem to prefer this one more. :3

Show season is coming up. And we all know what that means... Conditioning.

Just the thought of the word scares me. I don't know how much I will get to ride for training this season, but I have started taking regular lessons on Red from this absolutely amazing dressage trainer. I want to start jumping again, since it's been months. And I don't want to just compete dressage, because I'm an eventer, and obviously eventers do xc, showjumping, AND dressage. An equal mix.

School is going okay. Some drama, but whatever. I honestly don't care anymore, I just need to get really good grades in order to become a Nurse Practitioner. :3

We've had a ton of snow days this year, so that means less summer break. Boo.

Long time update

Hey guys! I am so sorry that I like, abandoned this poor old blog. :( I honestly did not mean too. It's just that I set up my new blog, and that got a lot of page views so I was really excited about it. Nothing yet though... Hopefully soon.

It's about time I posted. I've been meaning too, but I am super busy. Anyways, I'll cut to the chase.

Riding is going great, I went to a show (didn't place individually), quit pony club, and got a bunny (and an iphone). Nothing much else, except that I am back into running.

I rode for an hour and a half today, so that was really nice. Ever since school started, I've only gotten to ride for 30-45 minutes. Still plenty long enough, yes, but I like long rides. Don't we all?

About the show... We placed first and second in the team area, but nothing in individual. So, yeah. It's a long story that I do not wish to tell. Maybe some day in a few years I will tell you, but my fingers are tired and we have a lot more to cover before this blog post is over. Kapeesh?

I quit pony club because I was super busy, and it wasn't right for me. That's that.

I got a new bunny! Her name is Paris, and she is now about 3 months old. She's super friendly, and loves attention. I put her outside all the time now, and carry her around the house. We're still working on litter box training, though, so she isn't allowed to run around in my room just yet. We're working hard on it though! :)

I got an iphone as an early birthday present from my parents! So now I can blog on the go, and take pictures. Isn't that exciting?!

And on too the running. I ran yesterday, and I think I ran the day before, but I'm not sure. If I did, I don't think I logged it. I'm to tired to go and look. :P Anyways, I just put in 15 minutes. I'm increasing it a minute every day. Vibram shoes, with the dog, outside, the usual routine. I have to say, it felt very good. :)

On my side of the world

Hey guys! Long time no post, eh? Well, I'm back now. Until August... That's when, *gulp* school starts. Oh well, I'll survive. 

So the reason for not posting lately is because I have been super busy lately. I'm still riding 3 times a week, and that alone keeps me busy enough! But I just got my new laptop (chromebook) so I can now post more often. Speaking of chromebooks, they are fantastic! I love it. Much, much better than a macbook in my opinion. So much lighter, longer battery life, and extremely durable. I don't dislike the Samsung for any reason, and I recommend getting 3g.

Let the summer begin!

Hey guys! As some of you may know, yesterday was the first day of summer. That alone is a relief for all of us cold weather folks! Now it's in the mid 90's here, and I'm loving it. Yesterday evening, I was sitting on the covered patio just to soak in the heat. (not the sun - I'm not a fan of direct sunlight.) It's only hot 4 months out of the year here, so summer time is nearly everyone's favorite season. Yesterday I rode and meant to post about it, but never got the chance too. :( Me and Red jumped, and he did so good! I am so proud of him. :) Got some cute pics, but not many. I did get a video though, and I will be posting it soon. So stay tuned!

First pony club meeting

Riding style: Jumping 
Duration: 60 minutes 
Location: Outdoor arena, whole new stable 
Weather: 85 degrees, breezy, sunny 
Horses rode: Mr.Red 

Hey guys! Had a big day today. Drum roll please! *Dum dum dum dum* Me and Red's first pony club meeting! (Well, my second, Reds first.) We did a jumping lesson, and he did fabulous. Didn't knock a rail down, and even qualified for the next round - a jump off. I was a little hesitant about having to memorize two courses at once, the first course then the jump off. (me being me, I wrote the numbers of the jumps on my arms for the jump off) It was slightly confusing because the jumps weren't numbered at all, so we had to mentally number them. But everyone was very nice! I learned a lot, and cannot wait for my next one. Next stop: Cross country. :)

Bath time

Riding style: Jumping 
Duration: Eh, 45 minutes I think. Didn't time myself. 
Location: Pasture 
Weather: Mid 80's, sunny, slightly humid 
Horses rode: Red 

Hiya! So as you can see, I am prepping for tomorrow. (My first real pc meeting) Red is going to be so excited to be riding with some totally new horses! I haven't even been to my first official meeting, and I already love this club. :) I just hope that I do well tomorrow. I mean, it's not like it's a rating or something. But still... 

On another note, I just let Red trot/canter over some poles outside today, and then gave him a nice bath afterwards. He looks so cute and clean after his baths, and his coat is so soft! I've been currying extra good lately, and his coat looks fabulous. :D  

As soon as I got home, I went for a 40 minute bike ride, stopping once to switch dogs. (Told you guys yesterday how that works) Daisy is doing good, but I could see her more fit. Then again, she's a dog. I mean, am I obsessing? xD Poor dog, has to suffer exercise. Actually, I think that she enjoys getting out of the house and off the couch. I don't think she feels so attention deprived anymore! *Happy jig* 

Well, I'm off to finish my to do list for the night. At least I'm on summer break so that I can get all this stuff done. (Let me tell you a secret. Summer break ROCKS!)
