Tick, Tick, Tick...

Ugh, I'm having a rough day... 23 days left and I'm not where I thought I'd be... Pneumonia had me out for 2.5 weeks, weather was super shitty in the beginning, getting thrown into a railing had me out for 5 days... She is making great progress with the time I have had, I suppose if I do it again next year at least I'll know what to expect.

Today she decided moving forward was not very fun, so I had to reinforce my leg cues with a crop. The good news is we also worked on side passing, head set, backing, bending and all that fun stuff and she really excels at whatever I ask her to. I suppose it's nose to the grindstone time... Ugh, I just need to pull my head out of the clouds and get focused. It is what it is...


  1. Oh, mares. So much is dependent on the cycle of their moon:)

    Hope you are feeling better.
    Pneumonia isn't something to trifle with.

    Where did you hope you'd be, by now?
    Try not to feel any pressure.(yeah, right) Relax. You've done great with her.

    Good luck, and good health for at LEAST 23 more days.
    Well, forever, really.

  2. This weekend I'll have something cool for you with that collage!!

  3. Just remember to have some fun while you're at it. She's a bright girl and you're a great trainer, so just let it flow in between workouts. Where she is RIGHT NOW is a great saddle horse for life, and that's cool. Everything else is just frosting...
