fuhhh, horrible day
1) Failed G2, again. was honestly perfect until my last turn the light must of changed, because she said I turned without stopping on a red.. which is stupid, because it was green when I looked at it.. So idk if she looked at the wrong light or if it changed right away? but FML. 2)Got to school, wrote and English assignment- bombed it. well okay, probably a 4 but IMO that’s fucking...
J loves to chirp me in my lessons.. (no she is not a huge bitch, and NO she does not to do this to her other students. I just seem to get a lot of sarcasm and blunt honesty)
J: "It's a good thing you ride better at the show"
J: "Close you fingers! Honestly I can't wait until the day you break them and I can laugh and you and say 'i told you so'"
J: "You might want to stop letting her rub your leg against the wall, or your foot might get caught.. which could dislocate your knee. and I'll laugh"
J: "Trot on the Buckle" (mock hack class for E, who shows the hack division)
Me: "Like the LEGIT buckle?!"
J: "On the BUCKLE"
J: "Who you riding in your lesson next week?"
Me: "I don't know.. I ride both of them kind of special" (had a couple iffy lessons lol)

Live, Love, Jump: Equestrian Confession #11 →
pr3ttyinpinkwickedinspurs: live-love-jump: Bad position over jumps ticks me off like you wouldn’t imagine. I don’t care if it’s pretty or poised or elegant, I just want proper. If you don’t have a proper jumping position then you really need to go back to the basics, sorry. I’m not talking about those jumps we all go over once in a while… bless this post Agreed. Though some horses totally...
INSPRIRATIONAL WOMEN- HELP!
So I have this speech like thing that is a competition for a full years tuition at a university. annnd I need to pick one or two women figures that inspire me kind of thing, are leaders etc. For example, Mother Teresea. But I don’t want somebody THAT huge. DOES NOT HAVE TO BE FROM ‘HORSE WORLD’ in fact, I’d prefer it not be.. unless they have a true story behind them.
Anonymous asked: It's all up in the air, but from what I know so far it would be to help with administrative things such as riding horses, teaching a few beginner lessons, holding down the fort when they go to shows, that kind of stuff I guess. Nothing is set in stone, and this is all in the early stages, but I'm just wondering if the drive is worth it to even consider taking this up. It could open a lot...
Anonymous asked: oh, no this isn't just some other good A coach. This is for a nationally recognized coach/judge/trainer/clinician/etc. You say you'd do it for Beezie Madden, so I assume it would be worth it then?
Anonymous asked: Just curious about your opinion on this. If given the chance to work for a top, reputable, very well known trainer, is it worth driving almost 6 hours round trip 3 to 5 times a week?

27. pishh poshh
So, my life is so chaotic. Wednesday I had a great flat school on Lex, still a bit of off things- not as swappy today, and more responsive to leg. So that was good. Thursday I lessoned on Boston, first time on him since early July and first time jumping him really. It went pretty well- my coach was all “everyone go for a GALLOP!” and I’m not exactly sure why we had to go mock a...

Okay so went to champs with ES and she got a 4th our of like 40 horses, yay! she rode great the first day, and had me swearing the next. honestly, my exact words were “for fucks sakes E”- and I really don’t drop the F bomb that often. But it was a good few days, and I totally set JD’s phone to say “reminder: i love kansas” with an alarm every three minutes...

Bays. easy to bath, classy looking. but i do like greys as well. 3. What discipline would you like to try? I don’t really want to do anything but hunter/jumper, but I’d love to do a full season of jumpers.. but it’s not...
