Hey guys, how did your Monday go?

It finally warmed up a little, but its still windy. Yesterday I rode both Misty and Dakota, they where full of pep and lots of fun to ride. While I was riding Dakota some beef calves got out, so we chased them in, and later while I was riding Misty, the Holstein steers got out so we chased them in too, wich was a lot of fun, the horses and I get a kick out of chasing those little rascals.
I also did some ground work with Sierra.

Question of the day: If you had the chance to spend a day with a famous horseman or horsewoman of your choice, who would you choose and why?
I would probably choose Clinton Anderson, as his method seems to be very effective.

Thanks everyone for all the support for Dakota's HOTM run, keep it up!
Maria, Dakota N the girls

I took my dog, Scruffy, to the vet for a check up and a rabies shot Wednesday. He was so good. He weighs 58lbs and is healthy. Spent some time with the girls when I got home. Had to spray them for flies and mosquitoes. Should be riding, again, in a month. Hugs and a Thursday vote.

Hi Trigger!
That's too bad that you're not on any teams! Well, you don't need to be on a team to enjoy your horse, that's for sure. This is the first time I've ever joined a team myself! The way that the IEA works is that you don't know who you're going to ride until you get to the show. The horse that you're going to show lives at the showgrounds that you go to, so you have no idea who the horse is or what he's like. You don't get to warm-up the horse before you show, but if you get there early enough, you can watch someone else warm-up the horse. It's a little dissapointing that I don't get to ride Pixie in them because she's the one I want people to see with because she's my heart and soul, but at the same time, it's exciting to ride a horse you don't know and prove that by doing so, you're a true equestrian. Literally, when you get to the showgrounds, the horse is chosen randomly (there are groups of horses for different levels of riding skills). Yesterday was my birthday, and I got my first ever show helmet and crop. Now I am completely ready for the IEA show season! The team is at another barn, so I have not ridden any of the horses there either. My first lesson is in two days, and I'm so excited!

P.S. There are IEA teams for hunter/jumpers, another for western, and another for saddle seat (I'm in a hunter team). Not all barns hold an IEA team. I only know of one in my area, and I'm joining this year. There are IEA teams in Canada as well as USA, so if it's something you want to look into, then search IEA equestrian! The IEA can take you to the top of your game, you can get into regionals and nationals. It's very hard to get to regionals let alone nationals, but the fact that you can get to that point, is exhilorating!
P.P.S. Congrats on going to your first show & good luck!

Well, left a vote!

Hi trigger!
Wrist is getting better! I am so happy! I really do miss training Logan! Doctor said I might be able to start trotting him again in a week or so:) I know it sounds silly that I am so happy to trot but I haven't been able to do any riding for a week besides walking Logan bareback, English, or western. Please keep spreading the word that I am sorry I can't vote for everyone because I am still in a lot of pain! Love you all my hc friends!

Not getting the horse. Tempting, but I need to spend more time with Sadie. She still needs a lot of work first. A horse is expensive. Going to wait until finances are a little better before I even think about it. Thanks for your input. Means a lot. Hugs and a vote.

Hi HC Friends. A friend came into work tonight and offered me a free horse. He's 3 years old and needs work. Not as big as Sadie. Don't know if he's a gelding or not. So tempting, but a horse is expensive. I fall behind, at times, with things I need to do for Sadie and Star. If money was a little better. It will be soon. Would like to know more. Will be down to just Sadie in a few months. Have to do some thinking. Need an opinion. Thanks. Hugs and a vote.

With the temperature cooler, I got to spend some time with the girls. Rick came home with hay. He called me to go out and open the gate. I was surprised to see Star standing in the front yard next to my car. I put the lead rope on her and led her back through the gate. Sadie was still inside of the fence. I checked the fence and found where Sadie had knocked it halfway down. She rubs that big itchy butt on the fence and had bent the posts over. They got brushed. Scruffy, too. He was loving the attention..... Because of the rain, the corral is slippery and messy. I let the girls stay out all day. I put them up after dark. Didn't want to risk leaving them out and something possibly happening. I took a bag of carrots out with me when I was putting them up. I had to put the lead rope back on Star to guide her in. Sadie, knowing I had the carrots, wanted them. She's a carrot junkie. I pointed toward the gate and told her to go in, and I'd give her some. She went in the corral and came back out after a few seconds. As I was leading Star in, I pointed to the gate, again, and told her to go back in, and I'd give her some carrots. She went back in and waited for me. As soon as I got Star in, I divided the carrots between them. So amazed and impressed with how well Sadie learns. I'm so blessed. Hugs and an it's raining, again, vote.

Please read all this will explain my injury!
Sorry about not blogging to everybody yesterday! I have a really bad wrist injury because when I was helping train a horse for a girl at our barn and lets just say teh horse wasnt happy it was being trained i will get into detail later. She had just bought the horse and she has to train it and due to my training experience with Logan she asked if I could help her because like Logan her horse has bucking problems but I didn't know her horses where like 20 times worse than Logans where and Logan's where pretty bad! This will be my last long blog for a while because my wrist is severely sprained I am lucky it's not broken the doctor said. I will tell you the story now! (Sorry about this being a long blog!)
I went out to the barn yesterday to help a rider train her horse with bucking problems. She knew about Logans bad bucking habits and that I could stay on almost any bronco. I saddled up the horse and went for a ride. As soon as I asked Mickey(the horse) to canter she gave a big buck. She continued to do that during both directions of trotting. But when I asked for her to canter after cooling her from her trot she reared! I rarely have riden a rearing horse because Logan had only reared once when a snake had gotten in his path. I was a little shaken but I collected myself for her buck. She continued to rear and but not at the same time, until we finally got into the canter. She did a bick buck and than reared right after when I went flying off the back of her! I landed on my right side and on my arm. I was in severe pain and couldn't get up. My trainer had saw what happened and came running out. I started trying to get up and get back on the horse but she said that I couldn't because it was a bad fall and she had to see if I looked ok. She checked my legs my arms and my wrist and when she tried to move my wrist around it hurt really bad. I kept telling her I had to get back on the horse I just had to but she said that I couldn't because I was in bad shape. I was so upset but shockingly wasn't crying because i was used to a hurt wrist because I had broken my arm and sprained my wrist several times and of course fallen off a lot of times! No intense riding (like trotting jumping or cantering!) for me for 3 to 4 weeks! I'm so upset! But my dad took me to see Logan today and he walked me bareback on Logan! I was so happy but my dad had to hold the reins! :( Left you a vote! I hope I can ride soon! I have a wrist brace and I am listening to doctors orders so I might get better soon! No riding is like me not having food or water! Come visit me!

Come visit me, Logan:) ***Running for August HOTM***.

In an attempt to fight flies, and boy do we have them, I bought some apple treats and sprinkled garlic powder on them. Sadie ate the treats, but Star only had a few. She didn't like the garlic powder. I put a cup and a half of apple cider vinegar in their water trough. Wasn't sure how much to use. Star likes the vinegar. She was licking it out of my hand. Sadie didn't care for it, though. That stuff is strong. I washed my hands several times and my hand still smells like it. Deworming the girls Thursday. Hugs and a vote.

We're under an extreme heat warning this week. It doesn't cool down overnight, either. Heavy winds, blowing dust, too. Hope it'll rain. Good news. No flies. Must've blown away. I didn't get to pick up lime. So many things I have to do. Will get them done. Hugs and a vote.

HI, left a vote. Finally got out and rode Logan today, he did great! I had him in the cross ties today, just like I always do when I groom him and tack him up. I was just getting ready to undo the one cross tie, I had my lead rope already attached to his halter, and he just spooked at ? He went forward then backward, reared up 3 times, he then lost his footing, and went down on the ground hard! I am like "easy Logan, easy", I just kept saying that, he finally heard me. He got up, I patted him on the neck, speaking softly to him, checked his legs out, they were fine, let the other cross tie go, he walked out of the barn a little on edge, once we were out of the barn, he was fine. I have no idea what set that all in motion, but, it freaked me out a little. Anyway, had a great ride. Brought him back up to the barn, as soon as we walked in, he was very leary, I walked him past the cross ties, and he was fine. I took his tack off in his stall. He has never done that before. I wasn't going to push it today, I was by myself. Will have to see how it goes tomorrow.

Spent some time with the girls Monday. Not much because of the heat. I took a bag of carrots out and divided it between them. Sadie said there's nothing better than cold carrots on a hot day or any day. Will be so glad to see the cooler weather. The flies are horrible. Sadie and Star are have been miserable. Someone told me to sprinkle lime in the corral and wet it down. It's suppose to keep the flies away and won't harm the girls. I need to pick some up Wednesday. Hugs and a vote.
