My Horse's Achievements: I have been workng on his headset and getting his hind legs under him more and he has been progressing really well. I am very proud of him for that. I also taught him to lay down which now even though he doesn't really like it he will still do it for me-he is so good! We are now both learning how to jump too.

How We Met

**************I- 'm finally fully recovered from my accident, and have been for awhile. I'm still having trouble getting on everyday cause I'm sooo busy. But I just got accepted into William Woods University!!!!*- ***************- ********About a year after Hunter my parents decided we could afford a horse if I worked to help with board and my riding instructor/barn manager (they are the same person) could use him for lessons. So my barn manager agreed to help me look for a horse. First she wanted me to try her lesson horses so she could figure out what I needed/what I was looking for. At the time she only had three. Diego was the first I tried, also he was the one she thought would be the best match for me. I fell in love with him instantly!! I tried the other two but they just weren't the same. After a couple days of begging and pleading and convincing my parents bought Diego for me!! I love Diego! Check out my drill team's website! www.midwestrene- *Thanks for HOTD on 9/30/08!*.

Here is a vote. Things here have been crazy. Which seems to be how it is lately. It is raining and I haven't ridden since thurs. I wish we had a covered arena. I went for a lesson on thurs last week. Scarlett and I had a very productive ride. When I got home our lesson pony presented signs of choke. Of course I had to call the vet and prepare for a long night. Unfortunately there was more than just the choke going on with the pony. On fri we had to put her down. It was a very sad day. She taught a lot of kids how to ride. So now we are looking for a new lesson pony. The sun just came out. I have to run and get the horses out of the barn. ttyl

Hi! I was able to ride Cody today! I was actually supposed to be in a health class, but I played "hookie" and laid out to go to the stables! hee/hee! The weather was great (partly cloudy, a slight breeeze and 55 degrees!) so I just couldn't resist! Cody was way up in another field, so I drove up there, put a lead rope on him and held it out the window of my Explorer and he walked beside me to the arena so I could saddle up and ride him. He is shedding his winter coat, big time. I told him he'd better keep it because around here we have some really deep snows in March. I really don't think our little heart-to -heart on that matter will do much good, but at least I tried to tell him. I got two more donations for out trip. Did you get a chance to look up Dixie Stampede and Dollywood yet? I have to present my proposal Monday night at the Board of Education meeting. I am SO nervous. I hate public speaking! I know being, a teacher that sounds dumb, but talking to my class full of kids is Way different than standing in front of some stuffy old men that want to make you uncomfortable. I hope I don't pass out or sweat profusely or stutter or any other number of horrible things that might happen!! On a more pleasant note....I hope you got some riding in today! Left a vote. Blog ya later. ♥

I am going to Lakeland in AB. Yeah it was great training Cheyenne and training horses is what I want to do for a living. Right now I am working a bunch of green horses when it is warm enough. My dogs name is Whisper and I love German Shepherd to, but I guess thats why I own one. Have you been able to ride Diego much lately? I was hoping to go riding today, but it got to cold much to my digust. Heres another vote for your handsome boy.

Hi! Not really doing anything exciting with Cody lately. It is just too cold, snowy, windy, icy.Thanks for the blog. I've been pretty busy with school things lately. I teach 6th grade and in our county, the 6th graders always take an overnight end of the year trip. I teach at a rural school where the socioeconomic situation isn't that great. Our school had planned a trip to Atlanta,GA. The school board requires at least 60% participation for an overnight trip. Unfortunately, only 48% of our kids could go! I spent last Wednesday on the phone and computer for over 6 and a half hours trying to set up a trip that would be fun, educational and less costly. I think I finally got it. I'm planning on taking the kids to Pigeon Forge& Gatlinburg Tennessee. There is Dollywood (a theme park), Dixie Stampede, Ripley's Aquarium, Rainforest Adventures zoo, Wonderworks science museum, and a Tennessee Smokies baseball game( a double a team of the Chicago Cubs). At the Dollywood theme park they can ride all kind of roller coasters, etc. and there is a 'Science in the Park' activity that includes history, geography,science and lots of math. At the Tennessee Smokies game, the kids will get to sing the National Anthem and be on the 'big screen'. The Dixie Stampede is awesome! If you've never heard of it (or any of the others, you can 'google'them and look at all the cool stuff you see and do there. At the Dixie Stampede they feed you a HUGE meal and you watch a show in which people are riding horses, doing all kinds of cool horsey things, an ostrich race where the people ride ostriches and a little piggy race where these little piglets race to get an Oreo cookie! I've been there 5 times and I'd love to go 500 more! You gotta check it out. The kids will get to stay in a hotel for 2 nights. The hotel has an indoor pool. The kids are very excited about it all. So am I! Today due to ice, cold and snow, school was called off, so I am going around today asking local businesses for donations to help fund the trip. I hope you and Diego get to ride a lot this week! Leaving a vote.

Hi! Good to hear from you again. Glad you are back in the saddle. I know what you mean about being glad when snow is over, but then you have mud. I'm the same way. It is really cold here. (High 21 today, low 14 tonight with -10 degree wind chills) It is supposed to end up this week with warmer temps and rain instead of the snow we've had today and tonight. Take care! Left a vote.

i'm sooo envious that you got to meet tommie and have the benefit of his teaching via your trainer. wow. that's awesome. at the time i saw him he used poker joe for the skit where he's the english rider who can't get the horse to stand up. i've seen his other horses on tv. i also watched him in the warm up area and he was so gracious to other lay people that wanted to come in. he'd wave to them and say it's okay, you can come in and share the arena, because they were hesitant to get in his way. seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

i read your blog on doozie's page about doing trick riding on the drill team. that's great! have you ever heard of tommie turvey? he and his sister appeared here in houston and amazed me. he can do anything with a horse from work with fire, to have them lay flat on back with legs up in the air for 5 minutes to ride roman on 2 horses at once cantering and jumping. i loved it when he made his entrance decked out in red white and blue holding a flag and leaning forward at full gallop while standing on the horse's back. he's awesome. i hope you do well.

Here is a vote. I know it has been such a long time since I have been on the HC. How have things been going? I have obviously been super busy since we were having such nice weather. Today I am stuck inside due to the rain. At least I will get some house work done. The rain does put a damper on Scarlett's training schedule. Well I gotta run. Lots of blogs to return.

Hi Diego, Miss Ya, Have a Vote :-)
How've you been? We've had a bit too much rain the last few days so we are knee deep in Mud (argh!). Lex was so full of himself yesterday when I tried to get him out of his stall to walk - he was tossing his head and even reared several times. He was doing his best Stallion imitation, and a very good job of it!!! I don't use a stud chain, but it would've helped yesterday. The blustery winds and on and off rain got all the horses hyped up. This morning is sunny and beautiful (now, that's more like it!) but don't know if it'll be warm enough to dry puddles and mud, hope so! I may not be able to ride, but maybe at least longe. That's our update for this morning. Take care, Sandy and Lex from Sunny (finally :-) San Diego

Hi. OMG. I cant believe I haven't been on in almost two weeks. So how have things been going? Obviously I have been super busy. The horses are doing great. The weather here is fantastic and I have been doing A LOT of riding. This last weekend I took Scarlett to a lesson with a paint horse trainer. It was such a good lesson and I learned a lot. It was also nice to see how she goes with someone else on her. Hopefully this year I will show her on the paint circut. Well I gotta run....lots of blogs to get to. ttyl

Here is a vote. Of course I have been busy. A client of mine had an endurance ride competition and I had to take care of her horses as well as do all of my daily chores. I have had the chiropractor out to work on Scarlett and Jill. Yesterday I had to take care of a clients horses. Her siginificant other was on a bike ride and had a run in with a car and is in the hospital. The horses are good. Jill has had some time off due to the holidays, but we have a kids camp coming up so it will be back to work for her. Doozie has been going out weekly on trail rides, I think she is really enjoying getting out of the arena. I have been riding Scarlett more. Hopefully I will be able to show her more in 2009. Well I gotta run.

Here is a vote. I have been super busy. New horses coming to the barn. New horses in training. The horseshoer. Our driveway is being resurfaced. I am waiting for a load of hay. Its a little crazy. All the horses are doing well. It is getting pretty cold at night so the horses are wearing their blankets, but it is still in the mid to upper 60s during the day. Well I gotta go. Have a great day.
