Reaching goals

Hello People!
Great news!
I've started level 3 and I'm smoking through it really fast because of Cricket's changing horsenality.... Have I told you? She is getting so playful and motivated! She actually kicked out at me twice (that's good, shows some motivation to play)!

So all we need to do now is work some more on our cantering on the 22' line with my feet still (she will gallop on traveling circles... Coolness) and we can do our audition really soon. This is so exciting!

I'm still designing my set up for the play-space.

I miss ya'll!

Toodles for now!


PS. Cricket is so encouraging and refreshing!

My Wonderful Time in Virginia!

Hello People!
I'm back after a wonderful week away! I went to Virginia with Mommy and Abby, it was a surprise and hardly anyone knew. Ya'll should have seen Emily's face! Beet red! Ok.... Easy on the exclamation points....

Friday Night (day of arrival): Went to Pizza and Parelli party, super fun and refreshing!

Saturday: Woke up early, went to the horse lot, and worked with Medicine Iron, and rode Holland on a long ride with a halter and bare back.

Sunday: Sang at Bethany Church with Mr Edwards, early. Went to Church.

Monday: Went on a long ride, I rode Ice with my chaps and someone's saddle.

Tuesday: Night ride with Ice and friends (saddle yet again).

Wednesday: I stayed home with Jemima and Abby and Lydia went to court to visit Mr Edwards.

Thursday: No riding but we helped Mr Edwards by rolling a round-bale out to the horses..... Muddy!

Friday: Left for "home" and now you find me here writing to you!!

Toodles for now and have fun in your next week ahead.

Knock Parelli's socks off and get a level 2++ or level 3

You can be really helpful and a part of this by going on paint/drawing/designing my obstacle set-up.

What you would have to work with:

8 tires

1 thick pole
1 tarp
2 pallets (on top of each other)

Optional: 1 exercise ball
Note: There will be not be any hills (sadly), do not make jumps and higher than 2'.

Arrange these in a smallish area.
