Things are going well. I’ve begun to ride stormy on a regular basis and he’s doing sooo well. He loves to jump, ((: We both have so much to learn, but we’ll grow together. He’s wonderful. He’s nervous about the cows across the street and has trouble focusing while we ride, but it will get better with time. Love you stormy. Forever.
heheheheeheheh gave stormy a bath today. awh yeah.
I rode Stormy for the first time today, about a month earlier than i thought I would, but he was perfect. He’s incredibly green, and incredibly awkward with his body but we’ll fix it with more ground work and dressage basic. Love my horsee (: what a good day.
So when I got out there early this morning he wouldn’t quite let me catch him so instead i walked behind him and clicked a little. Instead of trotting away from me he began to trot in circles around me- he FREE LUNGED IN A PADDOCK FULL OF GRASS. He had his inner ear to me and lunged better than he ever has on the line. When I finally took my hand down to let him stop, he turned towards me...
Today was my first full day with him and we hit the ground running! He hasn’t been ridden in years and the only time he has been ridden it was to race so it will be quite a while before we ride. He took the bit today for the first time in years, although at first he was quite stubborn- it was a great accomplishment for us both. Later I lunged him and ran around with him for a little while....
I decided to create a blog dedicated to my horse.
I know, it sounds kinda crazy, but I want to remember every triumph and struggle with him- so this is sort of my equestrian diary. Stormy came home to me yesterday June 4, 2012. He’s a 16h, 7 year old thoroughbred bay, with a half star on his forehead. Right now he’s a little bit skinny, but soon he’ll have some more muscle on him and look great. (: Basically, Stormy...
