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!

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
