So glad the storms held off! Gold star for PT today, we worked on a lot of fun stuff at the trot - shoulder in, extended trot, collected trot, changing bend on circles. What a good boy! 🌟💫 🌟

It’s hard being perfect ❤️ Both of my boys were so good this morning! Flash and I had a minor miscommunication that put us out of the running for our jump-off class, but he came back better than ever and wound up 3rd in our large speed class. He was so brave today and jumped everything so well. I couldn’t be more proud of my baby horse at his first overnight show.

Tyrone went in and did his job, putting in a clear first round in our first class and was going for the money when we had an unfortunate rail at the last fence of our jump-off, but we still managed to bring home 5th. In our speed class he was going around the best hr ever has and I couldn’t be more proud of him! A clear, steady round delivered us the pink 5th place ribbon.

I couldn’t have asked for my horses to be any better and I know what I need to do tomorrow to help them succeed in our classes. I’m so thankful for Jen and the Altamonte team for coaching me and cheering me on. Every day I’m learning something new and it is so nice to put in such a good trip and be confident about it! Baby steps, but we are getting there!

She literally is never surprised with my daily antics 🤪 Kassie got her vaccines today for the upcoming show! Also talked with the vet about surgery in the winter! Kassie has two B.B. gun sized melanomas under her tail. So they have got to go once fly season is gone. We will also start her on Cimetidine! No biggie just a downfall of owning a grey 🤦🏾‍♀️ Also rode her in a hackamore today after work and she was pretty mad at me cause I didn’t have time for a longer hack 😂 what I have to put up with 🙄 #MostHonestMareThereEverWas

My husband calls photos of Pluto from the ground “big head, little body” pictures. #hesnotwrong #plutoalwayshasabugheadthough #bighead #saturday #supersaturday #filter #ilovehashtags #hashtaglife #pluto #nottheplanet

I CANTERED TONIGHT!
.
For the first time in FIFTEEN years!!
.
Tonite we rode out of the arena in a huge paddock - which is a big deal in itself as the bad fall I had happened when a horse bolted on me in the open...and I’ve really struggled with confidence issues since that fall.
.
Our trainer had us take our horse up a bit of an embankment at a trot and then ask for a canter. We were told to canter about 20-30 metres. I didn’t get anywhere near that lol but managed to canter 5-6 times!
.
It was a hot mess, I nearly fell off once because I lost a stirrup and I could not keep my horse going straight but I did it 😂
.
I also put what I’ve learned so far about mindset in to play when I was driving home and the ISBC was saying “yeah you did it but it was the worst canter ever so you can’t really be proud of yourself”. I said out loud “actually no. You know what, stuff you IBSC. A couple of months ago I was scared to even trot. But here I am now. I did it, it was a huge deal for me AND I AM PROUD!”
.
Now just to put all the pieces together and start believing in myself more!

A fun and quick Friday night ride! Worked on bend, canter pace, and some trot poles. She has been SO good lately, amazingly responsive and happy. Building blocks of a growing partnership. 💕 #horsesofinstagram #hunterjumper #greenbean #warmbloodx #chestnutmare #adultammystrong #poweredbysmartpaksupplements #onekhelmets @onekhelmets
