June Goals + May Analysis

May Analysis
  • Spend at least 5 Hours in the Saddle
    I didn't track it exactly, but I'm certain I hit this.
  • Ride Bareback in a  Halter at least twice
    I accomplished this times about 10.
  • Hack out at least 4 times
    Did this!
  • R + R + C in all 3 gaits 
    Due to mostly just working on our bridleless stuff, I didn't really spend a pile of time on this but it was on my brain regardless so i'll call it a win.
  • Jump at least onceI jumped three times!  I mean, I just popped over an ex that was set up in my arena, but still.
  • PEMF Appointment #1 (2019)Done May 3rd
  • Pentosan Injection #3
    Done May 22nd

Overall, May was kind of a bust. I mean I hit all my goals, but they were seriously Basic B!tch status and considering Sierra spent 2 weeks of the month being lame, I need to raise my bar a bit.  Really, the last two months have been crappy in terms of riding, but i'm hoping to get back on track.  I'll be riding two horses for at least the next two weeks, so that should seriously bump up my saddle time.  Now I just need Sierra to stop getting hurt and for the wildfires to dissipate as it's currently too smokey to ride or exercise the horses safely... always something!

Ignore the sketchy set up

The smoke from nearby wildfires is absolutely awful right now

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 Blogger Secret Santa

Many people missed the Blogger Secret Santa that I hosted last year after speaking with The Printable Pony, our fearless leader in festive fun for the past several years, and in an effort to not step on her toes again I reached out again but sadly didn't receive a response. I'm going to assume she's no longer able to host the Secret Santa (lets face it, she's way better at it than me so wahhh!!) so I'll give it a whirl again because it's so fun! PLEASE SHARE THIS! If you're blogging, post a link in your blog even if it doesn't apply, send to friends, make a special blog post with a link, and so on!  The more people that participate, the better! Last year the cut-off was November 20th and many gifts were still sent/received very late, so I'm going to make the cut off November 10th and hopefully that helps!   I am hoping to get everyone the information for their draw within a few days following the deadline to allow for ample time to research, shop and
