3Day Adventures Blog Hop: 3 Words

I stumbled across this Blog Hop this morning as I perused through my reading list, pretending this is not the busiest week at work in our 8 week rotation.  Not only do I love Blog Hops because it expands my reading list, but I love reading the posts.  This Blog Hop was originally created by 3Day Adventures, and in it, she asks you describe your horse(s) in 3 words.

Kidd is a red head, through and through.  He's incredibly sensitive both emotionally, and physically.  If one little thing in his tack isn't how he likes it, he will be incredibly awkward and uncomfortable. While it's not in his nature to pitch a full-on fit, he revels in negative tension.  He is easily upset when not spoiled and told how brilliant he is, and while it's nice he's invested, it works against us more often than not.

Kidd loves to have fun and is very easily bored.  He is very true to his name, and is constantly picking at things/people/horses and trying to play.  He loves to get out into a change of scenery and sometimes struggles to control his excitement.

Kidd, as aforementioned, is a very tense horse when not in a full program, and I struggle to develop the relaxation he needs to train correctly.  His brain is constantly busy and as L Williams put it in her post, "his brain hamsters" are in over-drive on a regular basis.

Accident Prone

I have never, in my life, met a horse as regularly hurt as Kai. I really hope that once she is on a regular training program she will stop hurting herself as most of them seem to be related to her 'over doing it' in turn out.

Jekyll & Hyde Personality

While I wouldn't say she has suffers from a "multiple personality disorder" as she really only has 2... One minute she's sweet as sugar, and the next minute she has the ultimate mare-stare going on with a snarl and glare that would scare a grizzly.

Kai, thus far, seems to be incredibly willing.  This really sets her and Kidd apart. While Kidd is competitive, he is just as happy (or happier) to waste away in a field eating his life away. Kai likes to get out and do things, and she is quite brave as a result.

Blog Hop: 2020 Summary; Covid Edition

 While we all live in different towns, have different goals and different lives - but one thing that we all have in common is what a wild and wonky year 2020 was.  The reality is, it's all affected us in one way or another, and with 2020 coming to an end it's time to reflect and look hopeful towards an improved 2021. What's the best thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: Hands down, the birth of my daughter .  After 4 years of fertility struggles, I'm beyond grateful and though some days feel like an eternity of struggle, confusion and pain, my heart has never been more full. Horsey: It's hard to choose. Despite hardly riding, I've had a lot of wonderful horsey-filled memories this year.  From the birth of Phascinating BRR , my second homebred to date, to the few rides I got to enjoy and making a major investment in my breeding business, there's been lots to be thankful for. What's the worst thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: It's

The Purge

I've been mulling over the idea of doing a post regarding the integrity (or occasional lack of) in the equestrian community for some time, but I couldn't seem to develop a clear vision in my head of how I wanted to piece it together.  I think the reality is, the topic in itself is messy and clouded at best, so I decided to throw all my thoughts out through my fingertips and help myself make sense of all these big feelings I've got swirling around. It's no secret that to some extent, equestrian activities are for the elite. I'm not necessarily talking about those who were born into a Trust Fund or were gifted exceptionally talented horses with easy access to top quality instruction and services but of course, those exist too. I'm talking more so about us - average people.  While you're probably thinking " umm, I'm far from elite and I'm just barely squeeking by * stirs ramen* ", I agree and I hear you when you say you work bloody hard to sup
