Good evening!
Hi guys i just thought since i have some extra time i might tell you about my weekend! Sound good? OK here it goes. Saterday was the beginning, i got up at 7:00 to go and feed. It was like 0 degrees out and i was frozen. I came inside and got warmed up by the fire and then i got ready for the day. After i was done with all this it was about 9:00 and i had a lesson at 9:30. I got bundled up in, 2pairs of pants, 2 pairs of socks, long sleve shirt, english boots, and 2 coats. We went outside and i got sonador all saddled and ready for my lesson. Kala (my instructor) came and i dismounted and handed her her check for the lesson and her christmas gift. She said thanks and we started the lesson. Last week we worked on my eq, and a little jumping. Now that i had my lower leg solid she said she thinks it is OK to start to jump higher. (last week the last like 20 mins we had a quick jumping lesson at 6 inches. sonador did fine with this, even though she had never jumped before.) So we got out our 1 foot jumps and started with that after we worked on suppleing and such. First attempt at the jumps we walked over them lol. Second attempt we trotted over them. (and i mean literally sonador did not jump them when she was trotting she just trotted right over them picking her legs up high, i mean she is a 16.1 horse so she can do this pretty easily. lol) So the third attempt kala had me trot her and like a foot before we jumped we qued for a canter, and this time she jumped! I must have looked so funny cuz she jumped like 2 feet higher than i was expecting her to so when i came down i was just laughing and i looked over to my mom who had not seen me jump yet because she was gone at my last lesson, and she looked like she was about ready to have a heart attack. It was so funny. The 4th attempt we did it beautifully and sonador looked so pretty my mom said. we did this about 6 more times and 2 of those turned out really good and 4 of them turned out ok. It was so fun though, if you do english you have not had a ride of your life until you do jumping, i mean it feels like you are flying!

Next that night Nebraska corn huskers (go huskers!) had a football game, last one of the season and it was the big 12 champs. (anyone watch this?) We were playing texas longhorns. They were ranked 3rd and we were ranked 23rd. Amazing that we even made it to the champs! So the game was going great huskers were winning until the very last 20 seconds. It all started we had a bad punt and it went out of bounds. So that gave them a advantage, then we had a player hoarse collar another player trying to tackle them and we got a pentalty, so that helped them, and then in the very last second they were close enough to make a feild goal and they made it winning the game by 1, and this was at the last second of the game. Imagine the heartbreak of nebraska! tough tough game (sigh)

Sierra and sonador just trotted by with a vote!!!!!!!!
