How We Met

As a young girl, I loved horses. My best friend lived on a farm and had a pony named Star. I was there all the time. We lived in town and of course couldn't have a horse in the back yard. So, after growing up and finishing school and having a career and getting married, and gettig divorced ang getting remarried, we moved to the country. I leased a horse at a near by stable for about a year and a half, until I was sure I wanted the resonsibility of my own. I heard about Sterl May being available, I eagerly went to meet her, I noticed her beautiful big, soft brown eyes immediately. I put a borrowed saddle and bridle on her and rode her right there in the field with her pasture mate. I knew she was a Standardbred, but that really didn't mean anything to me, she was a horse, she had 4 feet,a head and a tail, and she let me ride her. I decided then and there that I wanted her. I asked the price and her owner told me,she always said she would never give her away. At that time Canada had just done away with our $1 bill and replaced it with a coin, a loonie. She said I can't sell her for $1, because she is NO loonie. Give me $2 and she is yours. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I handed her a $2 bill. She handed it back to me and said " you keep this $2, as long as you own Sterl May you will never be broke". I still have that $2 bill, it is framed with her reg. papers. I promised her a home until the day she dies. I will keep that promise. I will never be broke as long as she is in my life. She is retired now, all she has to do is look pretty and keep Charlie company. She has Cushing's disease, but she doesn't know, so I'm not going to tell her, she never complains, she willingly takes her meds everyday, she just goes with the flow. She is a very happy horse.

You will have fun with your down loads, a bet you look beautiful riding dressage, were finally getting some rain it has been a month but that was okay for us becasue rain ruins cherry harvest and were done now so it held off perfect !! So refreshing Lilly took a big junk out of her hoof, ( she's barefoot , it does not seem to be causing her problems but I am not riding too harrd and only in the arena since she did it, softer footing, I don't want to mess her up, my farrier is on vacation so we are kinda taking it easy till he can tell me if she is fine. have a great rest of the week Suz and Lilly

Good news and bad news.
Hi every body! I have some bad news and a couple of good news. First good news, I made it back from vacation safely and am happy to be in my own state again. Now the bad news, Rocky's owner decided that she didn't like the level of care he was getting at our barn so she moved him. So I am no longer to work with him. :( But good news, I am riding a little pinto that used to barrel race. She loves the work and has tons of energy! And the last good news, Mercy has so many lessons that we are having to turn down some people. Bad for Mercy at the moment but it means that we have $2000 laying around. We are looking into buying another horse, to help Mercy out with all her lessons! If you are in Colorado and now of a good kids horse for sale, let me know! Voted!

Good morning. Sorry to hear the rain decided to come along for your ride but at least you were able to get some riding in. I have never heard of a weatherman that gets it right! Good luck on your dressage training. I love watching it but I know it takes lots of hard work and strength. Butter and I had a great ride on Sunday and went swimming in the lake when we were done. Our temps are back in the 90's with high humidity so he will be getting a break for the next couple days. Have a wonderful week!

Well I did it… I finally rode him again!
Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a little while since we've blogged again, but that's because we have been busy busy! There was the Summer Dressage Festival this weekend, and the previous weekend was the Novice Rider Development show. Coming up on the 25th & 26th is the RCMP Musical Ride, and the RCMP horses arrive at the barn on Wednesday! The last weekend of this month is the Jump For Hope for Kids With Cancer Show. The only thing that didn't happen that the barn was planning for was the Cavalia horses coming to stay, they stayed somewhere else before they came to Edmonton.

In other news I FINALLY rode Buddy after he bucked me off twice that last time I rode him. I put pictures up of it! He's wearing his new saddle pad and fly bonnet that my fiancé bought for me! And, my fiancé and I adopted another pitbull yesterday, she's currently on a trial to see how she will get along with our other dog, and so far she is doing okay so we are hoping it will work out! If not we will have to take her back, but if that happens, they will try and match us up with a dog that will get along with Harley.

Annie had her baby on Friday morning, so now both babies are here. Annie had a filly, and they have named her Redina, I have put up some pictures of her on Buddy's page. I will try and get my other pictures of Bentely to upload, but I think I have to resize them first.

I'm hoping now that I've ridden Buddy again I will get back into it and things will go well and I'm hoping that I can ride him at least once or twice a week until I leave for BC at the end of August for the 2 weeks. I hope everything has been going well with all of you guys and you have gotten a lot of horsey time in!

My show this weekend went ok. Rose and I had a pretty bad day. We had a lot of mistakes, but we were able to correct them. So we then just had bad times instead of "no times". We still got Reserve out of 3:) The 3rd place had one "no time" It wasn't too bad of a day. I still enjoyed it.

I can't afford a trainer either so I do the same thing, I watch DVD's or read up on things and just pratice! .
☆ I had a really nice horsey weekend and hope all of you did as well. I hauled out to the lake with Whiskey Saturday. We rode about 2 1/2 hours. I hosed him down and got him cooled down and headed home. Sunday I got out early and rode Deacon around the home property. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies, love & hugs.

Hi Donna Lee
I love to watch dressage its like the ballet of the horse world. I have never done it,I have never had the legs for it. I did try jumping once when I was in my late teens, didn't like it so I never did it again. I'v been off line for a few days. Gave myself carbon monoxide poisoning using the lawn mower. Had treatment and feeling a little better they said it would be a couple of weeks before I,m fully recovered. Stupid or what? I thought it was just the heat.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

Hi Donna Lee :)
Yesterdays riding lesson with the little girls went well. They both wanted to ride at the same time so I saddled both Cherokee and Dakota for them to ride. They were both good boys and behaved themselves. The little girls had a lot of fun and didn't want to leave when it was time to go! They liked Cheyenne too, thought she was very pretty and wanted to ride her too. Nope she's too young I told them! Not much going on today, it finally got hot out and I got to lounge in the pool for a while. Supposed to be hot tomorrow too so I am going to try to get some riding in in the early morning. Have a great Sunday evening!

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. That's a really good idea to make them from the tops of containers. Now did he paint the letters on them, or is it tape? Still very handy I have to say. Sorry you and your tack had to get a little wet on the ride. I hate for my tack to get wet. My show saddle never sees the day of light unless we're at a show and if it even looks like rain, everyone uses their work saddles to show in. LOL! Love, Marion and the blondes.

RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY!!! Nothing but the rain going on here. Everyday this past week it has rained and more expected this week. We had 5 and 1/2 inches on Friday, the pasture was flooded. Water has gone down now. Farrier did the horses hooves on Thursday. I had a pretty scary experience on Tuesday. I was headed to work and right before I made it there I started feeling strange. I made it to work but felt really hot, sweating and dizzy. I couldn't get out of my truck. I called the office for help. They sent the EMT's out to check on me. Called an ambulance and rushed me to the emergency room. I was diagnosed with heat exhaustion and dehydration. Needless to say I have been drinking lots of water and GatorAde now. That was scary!! Leaving a vote for ya.

Remember about my luck...well, we just got all tacked up ant started out to the ring, and yup, you guessed it, rain, what gives, it was just spitting, so we stayed out for half an hour anyway. The rest of the day was off and on drizzle. That is not what the the weatherman said. David made the letters out of feed tub lids and screwed them on to stakes, I'll tell him you all think it looks good. Charlie and I started dressage a couple of summers ago, remember I didn't ride last summer due to my arm, hope we have a good season this year. I can't afford a lesson every week, so I bought some MP3 download lessons from Jane Savoie's website, they are super. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
Good Morning all, I managed to get thru the first week after vacation. The weather was just stupid this week, cold mornings, warm afternoons, HOT late afternoons and 3 days of showers in the late afternoon. I said before this full time job is gettin' in my way of fun time. No ride this week, and had to be careful of the rich grass because of the humid and wet conditions. We will have a ride this morning before it gets hot. Then maybe run the vacuum over and sit is the sun with a book, eh, sounds good to me. David made some dressage letters for my riding ring, I added a couple of pics, Love that man... We voted today, Love Donna Lee

We have been having surprisingly low temps here this summer. Some days it feels more like fall! Right now its only 64 degrees and feels kind of chilly out. Not our typical hot, humid July weather! It looks like it may start getting warmer this weekend though. This morning Ethan woke me up at 4:00 am and said the horses are out! The gate was open for some reason and they were out grazing. I put some feed in a bucket and got them back in without any trouble. Last Saturday some people my aunt knows came to her place and their 2 little girls wanted to ride so I rode Dakota over for them to ride. They had a lot of fun and Dakota behaved himself. They will be coming out to my aunts every Saturday(they are keeping calves at my aunts) and their mom wants to pay me to give them riding lessons. So we will see how it goes! Any tips for what all I should teach them? I have done my 3 driving classes so now I need to wait 6 months and get my 40 hours of practice in before I can try to get my license. I drive to and from church and I am starting to enjoy driving. Got to go now, hope you all have a great weekend!
