Ignore my messy helmet hair and just focus on the beauty of Kelsey. I didn't ride her today because she gets the weekend off due to being so good (I don't want to overwork her and make her grumpy) but I did spend some time grooming and hanging out with her. I did get to ride another pony- Diamond before just as a little warm up ride the little girl who's her owner had her lesson. I did working student all day but it was mostly cool and not to bad to be walking around and working. Next week and the week afterward we're training for a show on the 26th & 27th and I'm working most of the next two weeks as well. I'm also really happy because I was chosen as a finalist by @20x60dressage to be an 20x60 ambassador. It's such a great honor to be picked out of all the applications as one if the finalists. My last post is my final submission and even if I don't get the ambassador spot I am so grateful to even be considered [so people should go like my last post- it won't boost my chances but I spent a lot of time thinking about wha I wanted to write and the picture]. Happy Saturday!

princesskilcullen what does #live20x60 mean to me? It means being you- as a rider, as a person and as a team with your horse. It means expressing yourself and being proud to be an equestrian. Ever horse and rider have their own style as a team and as individuals and #live20x60 lifestyle allows riders to express their style as well as come together with others to express themselves and the dressage athletes.

  •   princesskilcullen I am lucky enough to ride at a barn where there are many different people and horses, each with their own personality. Some horses are puppy dog like while some are very opinionated. The riders are no different in the variety of style and personality. Some are put together and determined while other prefer a more laid back look and attitude [all which the hannah breeches could be incorporated]. All of them are wonderful and as a whole make my barn unique and special. #Live20x60 to me means to express these personalities and lifestyles of the horse and rider. [continued in comments] 2d
  •   princesskilcullen Kelsey, my 15yr Connemara Pony, Is a hard working, dedicated mare who aims to please and is very sweet-tempered yet she can be stubborn sometimes and acts as if she’s saying ‘you really expect me to do this/that?’ Because of this personality we like to call her princess and every day I try to show this off like the #live20x60 lifestyle tries to do. She has a crown charm on her bridle, princess like music for her freestyle and Cursive scripts for labels and embroidery [not to mention her nickname is princess/princess Kelsey/Princess K and I use Princess Kilcullen as screen names, usernames, etc.]

  •   princesskilcullen My personality is not so princess like yet I incorporate my own style and personality into my riding and style much like #live20x60 lifestyle tries to get riders to do. I try to find things others do not have and add my own spin onto riding outfits, tack and supplies, to add my creativity to the horse world. I always try to stand out with my style and try new things with outfits and clothing because I like to be my own person. I have a love of Photography and Filmmaking that I am lucky enough to be able to incorporate with my dressage and I absolutely love my job as a working student to add my organization/perfectionist side to my riding life as well as feed my eagerness to learn as I get to work with many different horses; each with their own personality and affect on me that I get to learn from and become friends with.

  •   princesskilcullen I also always try to bring my barn lifestyle into everything I do, much like #live20x60 encourages riders to do. I wear my barn and trainers logos with pride, my dressage references always find their way into a conversation and I will always defend riding as a sport to those who believe we just 'sit there' I love to live by the motto "life is like a dressage test. If you're too busy thinking about your last move, your next one won't be any good either", embedding my dressage into my everyday life. The #live20x60 and Hannah Breeches would only add to bring able to tie horse world with real world- creating a style I could wear to the barn and then out on the town or vise versa.

  •   princesskilcullen #live20x60 is a lifestyle that likes to show off every Horse and rider’s personality and style and to be a part of that and be able to represent that Idea would be such a wonderful opportunity. I think its important to know the idea and thought behind the company/brand. In this case #live20x60 lifestyle is the idea behind 20x60 and I love the thought and concept of #live20x60. Because of this I feel like I could represent the brand due to the fact that I enforce the idea and try to live it as much as I can.

  •   princesskilcullen I am not a FEI dressage rider with a horse costing millions of dollar and trained to tip-top-shape but I am proud of where I am in my riding and look back on all of my hard work fondly. I was never given anything I wanted whenever I wanted and had to work to get to where I am. During this time I learned a lot about not only dressage, but the bond and balance between horse and rider. I learned that taking in the horses personality into account and creating training, care and a style around that is important to the overall product of the horse, the rider and dressage.

  •   princesskilcullen #live20x60 is a lifestyle of expressing the horse and rider individually and as a team, their style, and their sport, that I would love to represent and I’m already so grateful that I was picked as a finalist. #live20x60 #20x60ambassador @20x60dressage 2d

Long, hot yet productive day today. I rode Kelsey early in the morning and it was already super hot out. She's been working super hard so today we just worked a little. Since she was a little tired we did a lot of stretching and just moving forward into the contact. The rest of the afternoon I spent as a working student and now I'm just relaxing. Tomorrow I'm not riding but I'm working so I'm still going out to the barn.

Hope you're all having an awesome day. I had a great ride with Kelsey early in the morning and then took some photos. She was so good despite the heat and we did a somewhat short yet productive ride. I also did some higher level movements and although they weren't great I was proud that Kelsey tried. Working tomorrow and riding again, then Friday I'm just working.

Lunged Kelsey today and then working student for the the rest of the morning. Tomorrow I'm working again and am riding again. Nothing too interesting going on. What about you guys? Anything exciting in your lives?

What an amazing day today! I went out to the barn and rode Kelsey this morning which was awesome. The barn & arena was relatively quite and the Kelsey was a superstar. I could be very light with her and I worked on a lot of higher level stuff with her which she did without any fuss. Then I gave her lineament bath and let her graze & dry before putting her away. When I got home I spent some time with my dogs. I'm teaching my labrador agility and he's getting really good at it.
Now just relaxing and hanging out. Hope you all had a great day and have a great evening
-Caroline & Kelsey

princesskilcullen So I men't to post this on my last post but for some reason I didn't :p
Anyways...
Had an awesome ride today. Kelsey got really round and supple very quickly. She was really listening to my aids and had 'happy pony ears' through the whole lesson. We worked on our freestyle which we're going to do at the end of July and I'm in love with my music! I also did some working student stuff and took some photos.
Also the beautiful charm on Kelsey bridle is by @emilysequinecreations

So yesterday was super fun. My friends- Meryl, Olivia & Paula- and I did a team competition thing and I have to say we all did super well! Our team color was orange so we put ruffles around out saddle pads & belts and wrapped ribbon around Polos to give a 'ballet dancer' effect as well as a few other orange things. All of us did medium difficulty tests (minus Meryl who did her first ever PSG and got a 60%!) and got great scores that won us second for youth teams! (we would have been first but the way it was set up wasn't 100% fair- no I will not go into detail) it was a long and hot day but well worth going. (Even though my shoulders got sunburned)

Kelsey's day off and working student today :)

princesskilcullen I'm back everyone! (Even though I wasn't really gone) I had my wisdom teeth out Monday and have been recovering so that's why I haven't really posted any updates, just pictures. I'm getting back out to to the barn tomorrow and Sunday we're going to a team competition. It's supposed to be just a fun, low key event so I'm pretty excited and think we have a great team. Kelsey's had the week off for the most part- my trainer riding her twice but having the rest of the week off so she should have lots of energy tomorrow when I get on her. She really deserved the time off though after the past two shows. So that's my life at the moment. I'm sure everyone else's is much more exciting. Oh well, happy Thursday! 3w
