The Last Post (except for videos and pictures of course!)

I had a riding lesson yesterday, which went pretty well. Sherwin agreed that $3000 would be the maximum price I could sell Chic for. I am glad that I now know that what I had in mind was realistic. Sherwin … Continue reading

This blog is due this week….

….and I feel like I have to explain myself for not having done enough with Chic. Or at least, I feel like I have not accomplished enough for her. Sure, Sherwin told me to market her for sale and that … Continue reading

UGH

So I would have had a lesson today, but I spent all night working on an English project that was due today. I finished the project, but I didn’t get a wink of sleep, nor did I have time to … Continue reading

I guess I should say why

I only rode her a few times last week. Well, Sherwin recently locked up all of his tack in a different tack room. I suspect that people had been messing with his things. As a result of that, however, the … Continue reading

I rode her again, twice

And she is doing beautifully. The second, most recent time I rode her (as of last week), I decided to try my new Wintec 500 CC. It fit her so well and my balance was so much better than in … Continue reading

No means NO!

The farrier was late. Like, and hour late. But that was okay. I decided that he wasn’t coming, so tacked up Winchester to go on a trail ride. Right as I was preparing to mount up, Randy arrived. He trimmed … Continue reading

FINALLY getting somewhere with Chic!

I had a lesson with Sherwin today, or rather yesterday, since it is midnight now. The Collegiate saddle is definitely making a difference with Chic, and with my balance. I do not feel tipped forward anymore, or like I am … Continue reading

Saddle concerns

So the saddle that I had been riding Chic with does not fit her. The more research I do, the more enlightened I become. Basically, the cantle to too high and the channel is too wide. I found an old … Continue reading

She got a bath today!

And she HATES the water coming anywhere near her face! She will toss her head, shake it, roll her eyes, the whole nine yards. She is genuinely afraid of the water. I made a tiny bit of progress with her, … Continue reading
