My muttled & muddy first post!

Let me start off by saying I'm not very good at this 'blogging thang'.  As you'll find out, I'm a very busy person and often struggle to commit to things that require any energy beyond my usual hobbies.  If you saw that episode of House where the woman was addicted to blogging, I'm basically the complete opposite.  Alas, through the pressure of a great friend (hehe, you know who you are!) I'm giving this a whirl.

Kidd, Summer 2015 in our arena at home


As I mentioned in my "About Me" segment, I used to write a few key notes down in a note book after each ride.  As someone who is constantly battling a negative mindset I find it really helps me realize the positives of each ride.  I started blogging on a different host as a means of keeping track of our progress without having to write it all out by hand (how very 21st century of me, right??) but I've decided to 'restart' on BlogSpot in the hopes that accumulating some followers and being able to follow other blogs easier will keep me motivated. Chances are I won't be tracking every ride, or every wonderful thing that happens to us for that matter, but I will do my best for my own personal self to keep this as up to date as my schedule will allow.

This Blog is probably going to stretch all over the place, from the lifestyle of the poor and sore (IE my life) to what products i'm using, my random analogies on what's in the news, training, equipment and everything in between, so we might as well jump into it guns ablazin' with both feet first.  Take what I say with a grain of salt, and always sit back and mull over other peoples words before jumping aboard their own personal wagon to crazy-town.  We're all entitled to our own opinions and the ugliest thing in this world is a closed mind.

AE Bloghop: 12 Tough Questions

Unfortunately, the skies have opened once again and the nearly dry ground is once again, excessively saturated, which means no riding today.  I do have some field trips planned for the near future, but for now, a blog hop to kill the time as the rain drizzles and drips off my tin roof - We'll start with something easy before getting into the nitty-gritty. Q1:  What hobbies do you have outside of riding? Life on a farm is very busy, and I work full time and I am also taking some courses part time as well.  In addition to riding, we raise chickens for eggs and meat, grow and harvest our own hay and crops.  We also tend a large garden and I am planning on attending some local Farmers Markets in the near future to sell eggs and some things from our garden! Q2: What is your boarding situation?  Are you happy with it? I have a 160 acre farm, but sadly given the climate it is really only conducive to seasonal riding.  Being in Northern Alberta, our winters average 7 m

2021 Recap

 I'm doing my Annual Recap early because, well, my horsey-year is over. Between not taking advantage of the re-opening local indoor this year due to time and financial constraints, and Sierra being pregnant, I'm taking a good hiatus from the saddle. I still hope to get my boots dirty from time to time on some of our other horses, but with winter looming in the not-so-far distance, I don't forsee much time being spent on the back of a horse in the near future. While it gives me a strange sense of desire, it also brings an odd relief.  I ended my season on a high, and I'm so incredibly glad I did.  Thinking back to roughly this time last year, Sierra had just gotten home from she-who-should-not-be-named, and I found my recently post-partumed ass chucked in a snowbank amid frozen ground.  She was wound so tight, full of ulcers and half lame whilst I was confused, upset and disappointed in myself for the situation I found myself in.  Once we got her back on the road to bett
