I was scared of our new fillers, but it wasn’t that bad once I jumped them! There’s a scary horse that looks a lot like me in the mirror, and momma thought it would be funny to take a picture of her.
I honestly can’t get over how amazing he has been the past few days. It’s like finally everything is coming together and yeah it may have taken awhile but he’s moving correctly now and I could not be happier. Not sure what I considered good before but now it’s 1000000x times better. Hus has never been either of our favorite classes but the amount of work that’s gone into that specific class in the past 2 months is really showing! Couldn’t have asked any more of him today in the lesson. Showmanship was AMAZING! He’s become quite a great showmanship pony in less then 2 years. Our hard work in that class is showing off. I have a few things myself I need to work on but it’s very minor. Also, his under saddle work is at a point I never thought we could get to. He was so focused and lifting his shoulders and engaging his hind end and it was an amazing feeling to know we were really getting it. At the canter he was giving me his best headset yet all cause he is moving correctly! I’m thrilled with him and my trainer was beyond proud also! No matter what happens this weekend all I am hoping for is a good ride in HUS with good transitions and consistency and using his body correctly. Also in showmanship I just want a good run!! Placings don’t matter to me, all I want is our personal best ride and showmanship run and I’ll be thrilled. I know it’ll be some tough competition but as I said placings are the least important part of showing to me. Placings are just someone’s opinion! Can’t wait to be states bound in less then 48 hours with the best bean and the best support system behind me. Good luck to everyone and safe travels. See you guys there!! Can’t wait!🤩❤️❤️❤️
Mom and I at worlds 💪🏼 So grateful for this horse and I give him most of the credit for these awards. Hopefully we will be headed back to Tulsa in 2019 ((:
🌠Different doesn't mean wrong,
It just means, well... Different.
There is many ways to reach the number 100,
There is many ways to train a horse
Just because someone is doing it differently
Doesn't make it wrong!
Don't give up hope,
If you're different to others
Do what works for you
And most importantly
They will thank you for it💞
When I was a kid all I wanted was horses. But my family knew nothing about them and refused to back me because they thought I’d grow out of it. I worked my butt off riding everything and anything I could and I never gave up. My dedication gave me the two horses that help me cope with nearly being murdered and give me purpose. Truth be told I don’t feel home when I’m not on the back of a horse. They are home to me. They are kindred spirits. They are my reason to live. The reason I post this is because I was told by someone I looked up to that I was undedicated, and that she wouldn’t coach me until I was over ptsd.... ptsd isn’t curable. To withhold training and to discriminate against me because of what I fight has left me in a state of grief, but I’m going to carry on. Because “they” don’t get to make the decision to see me as not enough because of what I fight. And “they” don’t get the power of convincing me to stop. I will keep moving forward without them.
