I figured I may as well hop on the bloghop bandwagon! It’s been one helluva 2018 lol.
Favorite Horse Show Photo
It doesn’t look like much, but this was Whisper’s first show in at least 5 years, and my first show with her in about 7 years. Compare this to any of our older photos, and neither one of us look this relaxed or calm. This was such a phenomenal show for Whisper. It was small, we only did 4 classes, but she was calm, she was trying, and she didn’t do any of her previous nervous habits. Unfortunately it was her only 2018 show, but I still think it says a lot about what she and my mom can do in the future!
Favorite Non-show Photo
Saturday or Sunday walks around the neighborhood with my mom and Whisper were some of my favorite days. The two girls loved going on their walks together, and it was great for my mom and I to chat and to let the horses have a change of scenery.
Favorite Thing You Bought
I really love my dressage saddle, and I love the deal I got on it, too. I also love the fabric I bought to make stirrup covers for my stirrups while on said saddle. The two go together, really lol.
Favorite Moment on Horseback
When I first got to hop on Amber post-surgery. This picture wasn’t that day, but I certainly missed riding my best girl, and being able to ride her once more was the best. I know she was certainly happy to transfer from hand-walking to riding!
Favorite Moment Out of the Saddle
I think our faces say it all!
Favorite Between the Ears Photo
Riding out in the neighborhood in just a halter? Check lol.
Favorite Horse Ridden (or groomed/cared for) Aside from Your Own
Soxie hands down lol. She is such a cool mare!
Favorite Funny Photo of Your Horse
This is totally her “omg you have TREATS” face, and it perfectly embodies her LOLOL. She has SUCH an expressive face, but whenever I whip out my phone to capture it she deadpans at me. She’s only photogenic when she wants to be lol.
Favorite Fence or Movement that You Conquered
This particular lesson was pretty intricate that Trainer G had set up in the early part of this year, and I was really proud of myself this lesson. I got the striding, got Liam on pace and in front of my leg, and got the bending line. Success!
Favorite Horse Meme
True story tho haha!
Thanks everyone else for doing this, too! I’ve loved looking through all of the photos!
