How We Met

My trainer bought Luke when he was a baby, so i've known him since he was just born :) But she trained him herself, then about 2 years ago put him up for sale. I fell in love with him a looong time ago (she would let me ride him occasionally) So we bought him and hes been the best thing a girl could as for ever since :).

Hey! Happy Valentine's Day to you :) Wow you have been busy riding this past week but practice does make perfect. I'm glad you're getting the day off before the show. I always did that with Koot too. It seems to ease their mind to just hang out and relax the day before a show then they kick butt :) Oh my gosh YES Koot is definitely the horse you can just groom all day and love on him all day and he's as happy as can be haha. I really can't wait to hear all about your show. You have to tell me how it all goes. Voted!

Hey! Oh it's okay I know how things can get sometimes so no worries. That's awesome that you have your first show coming up. I can imagine that you're practicing a lot but I can't wait to hear how it all goes :) Things are going pretty well here. I rode Koot yesterday and he did great. I didn't ride today but I did spend a lot of time loving on him and hanging out. Hope you had a fun weekend :) Voted!

I'm glad I could help you out :) That makes sense about keeping Luke's shoes on year round. It can be a tough call sometimes. I'm pretty sure Koot could go back to being fully barefoot but at the same time I don't want to chance messing up his hooves again. Did you get in any riding yet?
I got in a great trail ride with Koot today. He was VERY happy to get out and power walked through the entire trail lol then got to roll and graze after. Got a couple photos and some video :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

That is awesome that you'll be moving up. Don't be scared just because you're going up against adults. Just think of it this way, you finally get to test yourself against people who have been doing this awhile and see where you stand. You can watch and learn from them and improve if you need to :) Oh okay that makes sense. Koot can last 8 weeks but after 8 weeks it's pretty hard to continue riding him without possibly hurting him or something. But you jump a lot and right now Koot and I aren't showing so I'm not as worried about him. When we're showing, it's definitely every 8 weeks! He just has front shoes. He used to be bareback up until I got him but since we walk on asphalt to get to the arena I put some front shoes on. His hooves were cracking way too much. He honestly may be fine to go back to barefoot but I haven't tried. By the way I really love talking to you :) definitely one of my favorite people to talk to. You're always welcome to email me too if you want. Hope you're having a great day!

LOVE the new photos! You guys were jumping pretty high! Then again 4 feet is high haha. That is pretty strange that Luke goes lame about his shoeing but ya some horses are just sensitive to that kinda stuff lol. Hope you're having a great day! Happy Groundhog Day! Voted.

Hey! Well that's great you got to ride both Friday and Sunday and it sounds like you had a fun time with your friends too :) Ya there's something about getting their hooves trimmed that they just LOVE to run and play afterward lol.

That's pretty much how my trails are around where I ride. They are maybe 15 minutes long but if we walk, trot and stuff then it's like a 10 minute trail lol. I have some neighbors/friends that I trailer out with but we haven't had much free time to do that lately. That is awesome you had such beautiful weather this weekend :) So did you get to ride?
I rode on Saturday, it was really nice like 70 out and Koot did so well. He was SUPER lively since he just got new shoes last week and needed to try them out haha. Then Sunday was a bit cold so I didn't ride, just let him out to graze. Glad you had a fun weekend! Voted. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

Hey happy Sunday! That is great that your mom will be riding Luke. At least he'll stay in shape and like you said be in good hands :) I try to trail ride as much as I can but I don't have many trails around here unless I trailer out. Plus I don't like to trail ride by myself lol. Next weekend I may be trailering out to a really nice trail about 15 mins away. How's your weekend going? Voted!

Hey Luke! Oh ya good idea not to take him with you. I wouldn't want a ton of people I don't know riding my horse either so that makes a lot of sense. Well hopefully you will be able to see him a lot :) Koot is doing great. He got new shoes yesterday so he's all set and I'll probably take him on a trail ride this weekend. Voted.

Hey Luke! That is great that you like English and History :) I always liked English and History was okay but I like U.S. history instead of world history. I'm glad you're excited for school. How much longer do you have until you graduate? Umm life is easier and harder after graduation lol. Depending on your job, you don't have homework so that's the nice part :) Voted.

That is great about Wiggles, I'm glad to hear he isn't going to lose any weight. I don't like seeing horses losing weight that's probably why Koot gets some nice pounds on him during the winter months lol. But he gets back into shape super fast so I never worry! That is soo awesome that Wiggles is gaining respect. He sounds like a pretty good match for you :) I'm glad to hear you are having some nice weather an getting some riding in. Hope you have a great weekend!

So today was a good day. I had a two hour delay for school so I got to sleep in. (I say we shoulda gotten no school, my street was icy!) and then I came home early as Wednesdays are my half days. I did almost hit the mailbox pulling back into our driveway (oops! Dad would have killed me! Haha) but then we had a little girl come over to meet the horses who absolutely loves horses and wants to come over and groom and be around the horses. It’s a good deal for us and her, she gets her horsie fix, and our horses get a little more attention/spoiling. I round penned Tianna a little, just walk/trot as the round pen had snow in it, and she had a little attitude going on, but she was good other than some snarky pinned back ears. I then got an email about someone interested in our stock trailer, so fingers crossed when she comes out tomorrow she will like it and buy it! I made a deal with my dad if I could sell our 4 horse stock trailer I could get a trailer that actually fits Tianna! So yes, today has been a good day, a nice little layer of snow from last night, life is not half bad here in Northern VA (:

P.S. left you a vote! Tianna is in the snowy scenes and the amazing grazers sections of the Virtual Horse Show, please vote for her!

Ya it's definitely not his favorite thing to do, he'd rather be barrel racing if it was up to him but it's fun to try new things :) I'm sure he could jump higher than that I've just never tried with him. I used to jump all the time when I was younger. Wow it already turned into ice!? That seems pretty fast. I'm sure the horses aren't too excited about being kept in the barn but at least they get extra treats :) Koot is doing great. It's going to be nice this weekend so I can't wait to ride. Voted!

That makes sense! Koot and I jump from time to time but it's not something he loves so we keep it pretty simple. I don't think we've jumped above 2 feet lol. Wow 8 inches of snow overnight??? That is pretty crazy. I couldn't imagine waking up to that much. Aww it sounds like Wiggles and Honey get along so well. At least Wiggles can get her out from under that tree to play :) Glad to hear Luke got out too! Well I'm off to work. I hope I'm well enough to make it through the entire day but we'll see. Voted!

Wow that's pretty cool. Do you normally jump 4 feet or was that your first time? Haha that is pretty funny about Luke and Wiggles.

i havent either this month and bailey is soooo hairy she looks aweful lol - we do the jumpers 2'6", 2'9", 3' and starting 3'3" this year prob. I was going to go to the one on jan 22 but i am not sure just because i have not ridden her much bc of the weather and the time diff. They are having their big show up there this week and next week - i think we are going to go and watch

Thanks about the pictures! We live on a half acre so it's a good size piece of land but not enough for a pasture or anything too big for Koot. That's great that you'll have time to bond with Wiggles while he gains the weight :) have you been able to ride Luke lately? Voted!

Hey Luke! Aww that sounds like a while so I guess you can't be riding him again for like 2 months or so. Ya isn't it crazy how fast they lose weight. In the summer when Koot is conditioned for shows he's so skinny well in shape I should say and in the winter he's got a huge belly haha. Kinda funny! No I don't have a pasture at my house just a big stall in my backyard for Koot. It's something like a 36 X 24 so it's big but not quite a pasture. Voted!

I'm glad to hear the horses liked them! Koot loves those peppermints candies and I'm sure they have like tons of sugar in them but I don't think too many can hurt him so don't worry about the cookies you baked :) Aww what a bummer about Wiggles starting to lose all the weight. Did the vet say how long this will be going on until Wiggles is all healthy and back to his normal weight? Well I had a short bareback ride on Koot the other day and then yesterday he got to run and roll in the big arena..he was soo happy! He rolled like 5 times and then jumped and ran lol it was so funny. I posted a video on HC but it's not up yet. Hope you have a fun day! Voted. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

Sorry it's been so cold there! That's awesome you've been able to ride Wiggles lately. I'm sure he'll catch on, he's just not used to be told what to do lol.

Hey! Yes the rain finally stopped today and there was actual sun. Koot was so excited to hang out in the sun and nap. He got a walk today and will get a walk everyday until it's dry at the arena. I know he's anxious to run and play with me :) Haha that's funny about your dad getting gas for you then locking the keys in the car. But that was so nice of him :) How's Luke and Wiggles? Voted!
