I felt something off at the show on Furst Dance. Took him to the vet right away. I was right, poor guy. He only spooks when he hurts. They cannot talk, so we have to listen. Now he is on the mend ❤️
Proud of my boys. We didn’t have the easiest of shows and had to find allot of focus in some extreme wind, but now we know what we are capable of 💪🏼.
Thank you to @jacob.frary for your love and support. Thank you to Smooth’s owner Debbie Erwin for trusting me to bring him along.
Thank you to our sponsors who believe in me and these magnificent anaimals

A good moment on a windy day! This was before R levitated and attacked 😂
All is good 🥰
Letter R was coming at him (literally) and we invented a new dressage move. It is been named the WTF change and we got a 10 on it.
Oh boy did we have a terrible freestyle today. Wind howling, letters blowing over, maybe some airs above the ground, but in the grand scheme of things, he started to relax by the end and had a positive expirence and that in itself is enough in a situation like this. I can only hope that he gained another level of trust in me. We came out alive and I never let anything get him. Growing expirence.

NEW: Purina® Gray Magic Supplement!
After extensive research in the field, we’ve confirmed it’s true: Gray horses are 10x more likely to find mud holes, grassy patches, and piles of manure to roll in compared to horses of any other color.
That’s why we developed a new supplement to take those gray horse grooming blues away! Purina® Gray Magic Supplement prevents stains from settling into hair coats.
Gone are the days when you wake up for a show at 3 a.m. only to find a green spot the size of Texas on your gray horse’s rump.
Available today only!
If you want to make progress as a horseman, you have to hold yourself accountable.
An instructor can tell you to open your left rein, but only you can actually open your left rein! I can tell you to step right. I can tell you to step right more, or reword it until you do it enough that your right seat bone drops down where it belongs. I can remind you to do it every 30 seconds. I can remind you again every time we change directions, or change gaits, or after your horse tripped. But none of my riders take a lesson with me every day! At some point you have to remember it and execute it all on your own. And isn’t that the type of rider you want to be???
I mean, When you are doing a dressage test, I can’t remind you to sit back in the corner or to not over bend the neck in the shoulder in.
The only time I am the head trainer is when I am instructing myself. Otherwise, I am always the assistant instructor and YOU, THE RIDER, HAVE to be your own master. I am merely the Layman who tells you where we are at in this project, and what step needs to happen next. You are the lead contractor who needs to make sure it gets done. (I know enough people who have major projects going on at their facility that maybe this is a really bad example! Lol but you get my drift hopefully)
I’m not sure how I made it through the levels as far as I did knowing how long it took me to get accountable on actually keeping my inside rein open 🤦♀️. Now I’ve realized how often I, just for a moment, open my outside rein when I’m supposed to be using my inside leg. I’m NOT letting this habit go on for years. I’m not. I’m not. I’m not working on anything else until I’m so consciously competent when I do allow my subconscious to take over, it sticks! Even then, I’ll be checking in regularly.
I had an adult student say that she’s always ride with puppy paws/piano hands (thumbs turned in, fingernails posted down) and “good luck changing it”. My tone was light hearted, because that’s who I am, but I basically told her that if she can’t hold herself accountable for something so easy to fix, get off the horse- why bother! It helped that I gave her the REASONS why it was important- it isn’t just to be pretty. But fixing it was hard for her because it’s so tough to turn her wrist- it was “hard” because it took focus.
Put in the focus. Hold yourself accountable.
So much fun learning about this awesome company!
