Lessons! And a very hot weekend

After I’d written my Friday post, Genevive texted me asking if I was sure I’d like to ride since it was a) supposed to be the hottest weekend yet and b) she didn’t really have a horse for me to really jump on. Which… Continue Reading “Lessons! And a very hot weekend”

Moar jump lessons!!

This lesson on Jan 25 was good. I’m sure it had to do with my attitude/plan/better day, but we synced a lot more. In light of my last lesson, what Genevive said about wanting him to stretch down over the jump and that we… Continue Reading “Moar jump lessons!!”

Jump lessons!

I had jump lessons! Yay! One was on Dec 13, and the other one Jan 10, but at least I’m finally getting around to writing about it? lol I have helmet cam footage for my Dec 13 lesson, but I was running a bit… Continue Reading “Jump lessons!”

Nov 10 Lesson

That I am FINALLY getting to after a month haha. This was a pretty good lesson. Amber was certainly a bit lit for the majority of the trot work and a bit reactive. But I think that’s more due to her being unbalanced and… Continue Reading “Nov 10 Lesson”

Dressage lesson #2

I had a lesson bright and early at 8 am on Saturday morning (three weeks ago), right when we were scheduled to get a cold spell. When 730 rolled around and I was out getting her tacked up I was severely regretting my decision lol.… Continue Reading “Dressage lesson #2”

Sunday dressage lesson

Sorry everyone. I know. I suck at blogging. I really meant to post this last week, but a lot happened and I just never really sat down to put all the video together until the other day. As I said in one of my… Continue Reading “Sunday dressage lesson”

Lesson Recap: Soxie x2

I’ve been procrastinating writing this lesson recap because it left me in an odd headspace for a while. And then many things happened at once so posting this fell to the wayside. But it was just a weird day in early January. There must’ve… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Soxie x2”

Lesson Recap: Soxie, Rocky and Mom – Oh My!

I REALLY meant to post this Tuesday. And then Wednesday. And then yesterday. And totally kept forgetting to bring all of the media together to post this haha. I guess after officially starting school Monday, I only have so many brain cells left over… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Soxie, Rocky and Mom – Oh My!”

Lesson Recap: Georgio x2

I’m going to combine these two lessons into one post since – well, I was a fail in my last lesson, and we didn’t do much in either one. Plus, I have very little to no media. What do ya do. Well, for starters, I was… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Georgio x2”

Lesson Recap: Soxie

I of course was very happy to get to ride Soxie again. Trainer G had posted a video of her just eating up the tiny xc course (and I mean like….tiny because it is Vegas after all) and getting super duper excited. It was… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Soxie”

Lesson Recap: Lit #2

Ugh, no media for this lesson either(last week so I’m behind again lol), but it was still a good one. I was originally supposed to ride Georgio again – which yay for canter and dear god for trot lol – but he ended up… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Lit #2”

Lesson Recap: Rocky

Saturday was an absolutely perfect day for a lesson. It got a bit warm, probably about 85 or so (I know it’s not that hot and it wasn’t haha), but was absolutely wonderful for an outdoor ride. I was on Rocky, and boy was… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Rocky”

Lesson Recap: Lit

Ahhh, I was probably supposed to have this out by now haha. It has been a whirlwind of appointments and me covering hours for one of my coworkers so the less important things have fallen by the wayside. Plus, we really just flatted in… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap: Lit”

A different place, another lesson

I think I may be on a roll here with the lessons. After my last lesson, I chatted with Trainer G about a few other places I might go. It’s a bit of a far drive for me to get to Trainer G, so… Continue Reading “A different place, another lesson”

Weekend Recap: Lesson #2!

I had TWO lessons in one month. Whaaaaaaat even is this haha. But there’s quite a few reasons why I am still really really thinking about my lesson, and why I can’t wait to get back to it (especially if I get to ride… Continue Reading “Weekend Recap: Lesson #2!”

Lesson Recap

Saturday was my first lesson in a long time! Good news: I didn’t fall off! Bad news: I somehow managed to minorly sprain my left ankle while in two point. Yeah I don’t know how. One second I was in two point and went… Continue Reading “Lesson Recap”

So many thoughts

I’m certainly one of those people that if presented with a problem that requires waiting (not patience because I have none lol), I have to have a gazillion different plans of action should the problem begin to resolve itself in a certain way. Then, I proceed to… Continue Reading “So many thoughts”
