sorry for the long blog but it's worth the read

hello :)
i had a very busy weekend lol! i had to go to work as soon as i got out of school on friday at 4 to 10:30 pm and it was SLAMMED all night. then saturday i had my last SAT prep class from 8:30 am - 12:30. then i went home for like 15 minutes and then rachael (fynn's owner) came and picked me up and we went up to the catawba equestrian center where he is stabled and got him ready to leave for the House Mountain Show at the virginia horse center in lexington. then we left there at about 3 pm and headed to lexington. once we got there we got him settled in and unpacked, then rachael tacked him up and took him over to the main arena to school him some and get him used to the jumps and then we brought him back to his temporary stall and put him to bed for the night. (i uploaded a bunch of new photos of him and rachael riding him at the horse center and some from him at catawba before we left.) then we came home at about 9 saturday night and she went back up there again sunday to show him. but yesterday i went over to hollins college for their riding open house and man let me tell you....those horses are HUGE!!!! the smallest horse was maybe 16.2 hh. they're all ex-show horses that have been donated to the college. they all make ziggy look like a mini pony haha! i rode this massive white 17.2 hand horse that was like an extremely grown up version of fynn lol! his name was oyster pond but they called him oyster for short. his stride was massive as well haha but im pretty sure he was the slowest horse there! even with all the clucking, kissing, sqeezing, and smacks with the crop, nothing phased this horse. he just plodded along like he was doing his own thing. and then once i FINALLY got him cantering, he only cantered for like 3 strides and then stopped hahah so we called it a day after that but it was alot of fun in the end....even though my legs were burning like no other after all the sqeezing and kicking!
next week ziggy and some of the other horses at my trainers place are moving to another barn that's about the same distance from my house as they are now. so please keep them in your prayers....as you all know how tricky and stressful moving horses can be! haha sorry for the long blog but i hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

love,
sierra and the herd
