That moment when people ask you what you did all...
long conversations with the coach..
*talking about puppies, which led to her dogs fear of crates*
Me: Well of course he hates crates, by avoiding them he got his own bedroom
J: With a queen size bed!
Me: Exactly, much better than a crate
J: Yeah, though the spare room is smaller than the stalls in the barn.. (true horse person right here! haha)
Me: Yeah, and both of them are going to be bigger than my dorm room next year!
J: Yeah, they will be.
Me: Guess I'll just have to sleep in a stall..
J: It'd probably be better, though slightly cold.. but it'd be just like camping.
Me: Ugh I hate camping!
J: Me to. They have cold showers and it sucks.
Me: They have warm showers now, and pools- they aren't that bad! Especially if you take a nice RV..
J: Yeah, I'm sure they have hot tubs!
Me: HOT TUBS?! It's supposed to represent the wilderness! I don't think camp sites have hot tubs..
J: Well ski lodges do!
Me: Yeah, 'cause it's freezing cold!
J: Okay, good point.
Me: How many times have you been camping?
J: Once, and it was horrible!
Yeah, this is what we talk about... Well actually we have hour long conversations, and if I say "I'll let you go" she'll say "yeah, I should do night check" and then keeps talking for another fifteen minutes at least.. you just have to love her for it..

25. good day!
So I found out that I have orientation and Tim Horton’s Wednesday!! Yay for having a job, thought I’m not sure what to wear :s I have to wear ‘non slip shoes’ so i’m assuming it has to be something that goes with running shoes? unless birkenstalks count.. Then rode Sass for a whole hour, which is kind of a bit too much for a flat school for a six year old, I like to...

Anonymous asked: "I did the shitty ass modified childrens" :( way to put down everyone who does these or even lower than these.
Anonymous asked: clearly you do think you're hot shit judging by that response. Also your position is HORRIBLE
hey guys, this is a local business that has a daily deal on a product. Always great deals and will ship! Don’t usually do this but they are an amazing business and have awesome customer service. Great people, great products and this site has amazing prices!
Anonymous asked: i have a few things to say that have been bothering me. first of all, the word you're looking for is TRAINER, not coach. Trainers train riders and horses. No coaches in this sport. And don't hate on riders that clearly ride better than you. last point: what do you show in?
24. modified three point= pain in the ass/no hope!
So, yes I have been working on modified three point- since perching isn’t effective and a full seat isn’t good in the hunter ring(plus, not that great at it- though probably because Sass hates it). But I CAN NOT get it- I’ve tried messing with sitrrup length, I do no stirrups for 10+ minutes every ride at the trot, often doing gymnastics/small fences/canter word on top of it. I...
23. sometimes i really wish some riders would get...
I know it sounds bad and I’m usually a pretty good sport- yes I get little excited if somebody misses a lead in my division because I want to pin, but kill me for being competitive. This isn’t about people I compete against though- as my entire division was great people, and 90% of the horse people I deal with are. But some kids are so freaking cocky it makes me want to beat them over...
things i want..
*new tall boots. (thinking tredsteps) *more TS breeches (tan, black and a colour) *wrap collar show shirt. *more boot socks, as always. *new show belt. *some new polo shirts *new winter jacket. well two, one for school and one for barn.
I just had a short stirrup moment– anonymous (via inspirequitation)
