Type of Riding: Can't ride her yet but have tried to start getting used to a bit.

My Horse's Achievements: when we first started to train her on a lead rope, she was not happy because she was being taken away from her mom. She would Whinny for her like crazy and wouldn't listen, but she finally started to cooperate and now she is more behaved on a lead rope then her mom.She also stands very still when we have to pick out her hooves which also took a while for her to get used too.

Pet Peeves: she has none at the moment.

How We Met

I went to a high end horse Auction (not to be confused with a kill auction) where I fell in love with her (she was 3-4 months old) and her Mother Missy (10 and very moody). We brought them back to the farm and at first, ahe wasn't too fond of me, but over a period of 6 month's, I was able to gain her trust and love.

I love and adore her so much. she truly is a gift from God in my life and keeps me on my toes. I sometimes do not know what to expect from her, but I take it day by day.

Dolly is a PasoFino-Morgan cross.

I BELIEVE...today is Good Friday, the day Jesus was hung upon a cross and died for YOUR sins and for the sins of the whole world. Accept His free gift of salvation today and you will be blessed in this life and for all eternity.

I BELIEVE...on Easter, Jesus rose from the dead, triumphant over death and sin forever. Easter is not about the Easter Bunny and candy. Those are only fakes that the world uses to avoid the true meaning of Easter. Stop on Sunday and thank Jesus for His gift.


CONGRATS SEBASTIAN ON HOTD!!

I was going to ride Sweet Pea this morning, but then my friend woke up sick, so I decided to give Sweet Pea a break. I worked her pretty hard this week.

had a wonderful day with my family! we went to a RailRoad Museum, and to Strasburg RailRoad, where we took an hour long ride on a real old train through Amish Country.

I took Sweet Pea on a quick gallop last night when it was almost dark. I hand-galloped her back the long field lane. It was a little down-hill slope so she wasn't going to fast. Then i turned around and hung on for dear life. :~) she slowed down so good, i couldn't believe it. for once i didn't have to start hauling on the reins a couple strides after she starts so i can actually get her slowed down by the time we get to the road. :~) i then took her up the short field lane. what a blast! we stopped at the top and we just stood there for a long time, looking at the sunset. it was so peaceful. i'd like to do it again tonight, but i might not have time. And it's really really windy and cold!!

what's up in your life?? i want to hear all about it :~) love you all!!

~Andrea and the horses

P.S is there any bit between a Tom Thumb and a snaffle to use on Sweet Pea? i might try a gentler one for jumping, since she does so good with the Tom Thumb, even galloping flat out. thanks so much for all your advice!!

HEY KIRSTYN AND DOLLY!
I BELIEVE....God wants me to put Him first in my life.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR ACORN'S HOTD! IT MEANS SO MUCH AND I LOVE MY HC FRIENDS!!

VOTE ANGEL MICHAEL (# 223715) FOR HOTD TOMORROW!!!



had a gorgeous late night ride with Sweet Pea, around the field lane. It was almost dark, just dusk, and it was soooo much fun! i galloped almost the whole way. she really listens with the Tom Thumb bit, I'm actually surprised!


Then i went on an early morning ride...well it was only 10:30, but that's early for me especially cause I have school to do. I just went on the stone lane near our house. Its on a hill and i usually let her gallop. I was at the bottom, still holding her back to a trot (well, a jig) and i reached front to grab a handful of mane to steady me....(she does have POWER takeoffs) and she starts hopping around and half rearing. I let the reins loose and she pounded up the lane...she always slows down at the top, this time i hardly had to pull on the reins!! i really missed just galloping and cantering all over the place. I think it's best to just skip jumping and just RIDE.

when i got back i tied the horses out till lunch so they could enjoy the nice lush grass. but, i'm careful about letting them out to long. don't want them to founder. :~(

i hosed both Sweet Pea and Flicka off when i brought them back in and then they ROLLED. Sweet Pea covered with dirt from forelock to tail....ugh.

hope you have a wonderful day!!! ~~~~Andrea and the horses...and one filthy pig...now who could she be...LOL ;~)

THANK YOU ALL SOOOOO MUCH FOR HOTD! ITS SUCH AN HONOR!!!!
please vote Acorn tomorrow for HOTD on the 23rd. Thanks for all your amazing support!!!

ponied Flicka (on Sweet Pea) over to the farrier. We walked the whole way, took us 45 minutes. Sweet Pea does good if I stand by her head and hold her instead of tying her. she's funny. sometimes when we go, i just sit in the chairs behind her and she cranes her head around to look at me like "hey, come over here and protect me" :~) silly girl. She did great, but the whole way home she really wanted to GO. I also got both their teeth done, and yes Marion, he said that Sweet Pea's were pretty sharp. i just looked when the last time was that they were done, and it was a whole year. so maybe she'll act a little better now :~)

Thanks again for HOTD! it means so much! and don't forget to vote Acorn tomorrow for HOTD on Friday, the 23rd!!! love you all!!!

I BELIEVE....all believers belong to God's family.

hello all!! rainy here, no riding, but maybe i'll play with flicka. got an email from My Horse Daily, and it said about how you should play with your horse sometimes, instead of always training. so i guess i might try that and see if she stops pesting me for attention :~|

sweet pea and acorn are fine too, sweet pea's staying dry in her blanket and acorn's toasty warm in his "blanket" of hair :~).

just watched a video of me and sweet pea jumping, paused it mid-jump and evaluated my position. i need to drop my heel and strengthen my leg, keep my rear end closer to the saddle and reach out with my hands and give her her head!! the other day i had two pages open next to each other, one playing the video of me and sweet pea, the other playing a YouTube video of Eric and Hickstead. i paused both in mid-jump and compared me with the Olympic rider lol :~)

hope you all have a wonderful and horsey day!!

I BELIEVE.....I should treat my relationship with God as if it's new every day.

hello!! i went on a nice long ride with Sweet Pea, and my friend Andrea and her 3 year old, Twist. He'sa paint gelding and he's natured like Flicka, really sweet and gentle.

I worked with Flicka, too. she was amazing, except she didn't like stepping over the o!poles that i had set up. i had set up two poles and lunged her over them, getting her o pick her feet upand watch where she's going. she banged into them almost every time. she's really clumsy. ANY ADVICE ON GETTING HER TO WATCH WHERE SHE'S PUTTING HER FEET? thanks for any advice. i'm really blessed to have such wonderful friends!!!

I BELIEVE....God wants me to control my anger.

hello all. had a very nice weekend, went to a friends house all day sunday. didn't work with sweet pea of flicka for quite a while, so i should exercise them today!! wish me luck!

on friday evening we watched "The Miracle of the White Stallions". it was GOOD!!! if you never watched it, your missing out!! the full movie's on YouTube.com. check it out!! its about the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria. the time period is world war 2, and the director of the riding school is trying to evacuate the lippizanners because it's too dangerous for them, but the army won't let them leave. but he does any way. they and their horses spend 10 years in exile before it's safe enough to come back. LOTS of action and their horses are simply gorgeous!!!

hello! beautiful day here in Pa, but i'm going to let Sweet pea have a well-deserved break today and long-drive Flicka. any advice for long-driving a horse?? i want to teach her to drive before riding so thats what i'm working on now with her, and occasionally ponying her, and lunging. if you have any helpful articles for what you can all teach a foal between the age of 18 months to 2 years, please let me know what site you got them of off, if possible. thanks so much!!

I BELIEVE....I should try doing new things for God.


hello...had a AWESOME lesson at Oxyoke yesterday. First i rode Madison, she's B-I-G-17 hands, a huge difference from sweetie's 14 hands!! then i rode Madonna. she;s younger and a little hyper :~) i just trotted around on her, but on Madison i jumped :~) yaaaaaah! I have to remember to keep my hands up!!! i have a (very) BAD habit of dropping my hands and not giving the horse its head.

i worked on jumping Sweet Pea a little this afternoon, and galloped her a bit in the field lane, she LOVED that, could hardly slow her down!! its been a while since i galloped, i should do it more often.

well, hope you have a horsey rest of the week!!!!!! luv ya all!!

I BELIEVE...nothing can separate me from God's love.

hello!! Andrea and the horses cantering by with a lovely-day Monday vote!!

thanks to all who gave me advice on the saddle fitting. it fits me, and most of you said it just needs to be slid back a bit. so i don't have to worry about it!!

had a trail class, obstacle course, and a jumping show yesterday, with Acorn and my sisters and Flicka and sweet pea. in the trail class we had a tarp to walk over and a "gate" made of standards and baler twine to open and close, 4 poles to bend around, a small jump, horseshoes to pick up from one fence post and set down on the next, and two poles on the ground to back through. it was very FUN!!!!
for the obstacle course, it was about the same, except, i led Flicka and Heidi led Acorn.
Kayla and i jumped for a while then. sweet pea was hot and tired of it, and she started rushing the jumps. i didn't want to quit on a bad note, but the longer i went, the worse she got. so i went in the meadow and walked her around till she cooled off. any advice for when horses rush the jumps?? i think i'll try the martingale next time, but first i'll give her a day off, or a long relaxing trail ride.
on sunday, kayla sat completely on Flicka and i led her around the corral!! yaaaaah!
hope you have a horsey day!!!!

hello!! a warm vote and blog in loving memory of Ruth Ann's sweet boy, Navajo. All great things must come to an end, and we are sure he went happily. It's always sad when a horse passes away. Life is short, hug your horse today!!!!! will ride today with friend cheri, might lead Flicka so that she gets her exercise. lunged her last night and slowly switched to long driving. she was GR8!!! although she was really skittish at first cause it was windy. don't like riding or training in the wind, they don't listen so great....
went to work at the stables this morning, cold!!! i love turning out the horses though!! they all come out different ways!! some come out with their heads up, snorting and kicking, and others come plodding out with their mouths full of hay :~). the meadows attached to the barn so we can just open their stall doors and chase them out. i usually stand out side of the door, to make sure they go where they're supposed to!! have an AWESOME day!!!

I BELIEVE...God is totally believable and trustworthy!!!!

hello!! might not ride today, because my friend cheri said she'll ride and now she doesn't feel to good, so i might just let sweetie have a break. and i really should work on long-driving flick. i have a REALLY good horse training book: Storey's Complete Guide to Horse Training by Heather Thomas. it covers everything from imprinting to dressage training, jumping and driving. its really cool!! so wish me luck, and have an AWESOME day!!!

I BELIEVE..all of God's creations are good-ESPECIALLY horses!!!!!
hello all!!!! guess what i did with my baby!!! she had weight on her for the first time!!! my sister Kayla (9) layed on her then waited till she relaxed than slid off. she kinda shifted around and looked at Kayla like what under the sun is on my back?! LOL i did it again, twice today too. i'm sooo proud of my big girl ;~) then today i also rode sweet pea around; worked on getting her relaxed and soft and bending around my leg. and my sis Kayla was also riding Acorn. she jumped him 1 1/2 feet!! she never did before and he cleared it 3 out of 5 times!! yaaaaay!!! then to cool them off we walked and trotted up the road and a little in the field lane. i told kayla she has to have the snaffle in when she goes on the road. she usually just attaches the reins to his halter. he listens, but she needs more control of she's on the road. thanks for voting everybody, i love you all!!!!!!

hello kirstyn!

I BELIEVE...I should memorize Scripture and think about it often.

hello!! i had a wonderful, although short, ride on Sweet Pea sunday evening. i worked on trot/canter transitions, and then walk/trot transitions. i was working on getting her to not tense up and start jogging when i shorten the reins. she does that because she knows a faster gait is coming. but i want her to wait till I say go before she starts :~). i ponied Flicka a little-forget what day that was...did you have a horsey weekend?? i had a F-U-N one!! i slept over at my friend Danika's house, my friend Sherena was there also. they're both do not like horses, but we had a blast any way!!! only stayed up till 12-pretty great. once we three stayed up till 3!!!! :~) i LOVE sleepovers!!! do you have a lot of sleepovers??
