How We Met

I was riding in a lesson one day, and this girl that I have never met before came up to me and asked me if I wanted to lease a horse. She was leaving to a different barn, so she could no longing lease him. I have been leasing him for 7 months now, and if his owners ever decide to sell him, we will for sure buy him. I love spending time with him, I pretty much devote myself to him and his well being. I go to the barn almost everyday to see him, and everyday I love him more..

A Good Weekend
I went to the tack shop this weekend and bought a whole bunch of stuff! I got a pair of new tall boots, a protective vest for cross country camp next month, a pair of hot pink riding gloves, bell boots for Scout, a purple lunge line, leather cleaner/conditioner, and I also ordered a bunch of things last weekend that are supposed to come today!
I rode in my new boots yesterday! It was very painful :/ but, I have to break them in because we have a hunter show this weekend!

Come visit me, Scout.

I love my boy!
Scout was once again a good boy! We did so good in our lesson and he didn't rush at all! Today, I walked him on the trail to go pay my respects to this girl that passed away on the trails a couple days ago. He ruined my flowers, but it was okay. He was much less anxious after I let him eat of course. I have had so much fun with Scout! But I can't decide if I want to do the horse show this weekend or not. Last week, we did pretty bad.

Come visit me, Scout.

My Horse Story Continued
that I never met before came up to me and asked if I wanted to lease a horse (She was going to a new barn and she couldn't lease him anymore). And I was like "HECK YEAH!", and so she talked to my mom and she then we talked to his owner and we had it situated that I could lease him. His name was Scout. He is a saddlebred/paint horse. He is the sweetest thing. I have bonded with him so much over the 7 months that I have been leasing him. We have had times when I was just so frustrated with him that I couldn't stand to ride him, and then other times where I just was so happy to have him that I never wanted to leave his side. But, back to the story, after many months of becoming into horses and learning new things from my friends and leasing Scout, I started to realize some things about my old barn. They only had 8 horses, that would get out from 2-3 times a day, with little beginners flopping around on their backs and kicking their sides so hard that it sounded like they were going to leave a dent on the horses' rib cages. The way that some of the instructors treated the volunteers didn't appeal to me very much. Including how some of them treated me. One liked to pick favorites, one would just scream at you whenever you did something wrong, and all of them would talk behind each other's backs. A couple of the things that annoyed me the most was when someone told me to discipline a horse one way, I did, then another instructor would come up to me and say "You can never do that to a horse!", and really? I mean, I didn't really know what I was doing when I was there, I was obeying someone else's rules and then I got lectured for it. The other thing was how the instructors would talk behind my friend's back to the "more experienced" volunteers about how weird they were or how they don't know anything about horses. So, after a little while, I decided to leave that barn. I didn't want to be part of a place that overused their ponies and were unkind to the people that helped them out. Now, I come to see Scout almost every day of the week. I love my new barn, and all the people in it. I have made so many new friends, and I really cannot imagine how my life was before horses.

My Horse Story
This is pretty much the story of how I started riding. A few years ago, my mom bought a groupon for two lessons at this one barn by our house. This was before I started riding, so it was a little bit intimidating getting on top of a huge animal. But, I did. And after my two lessons, I didn't really think that it was all that great. But the next Summer, my mom signed me up for a horse camp at a different barn. It was a place where they mostly just taught flat work: walk, trot, and canter. They had a program where volunteers would help out with their lessons and in exchange get free riding lessons. After that camp, I decided to become a volunteer. I stayed there and helped with classes and camps- with small children all over the place, running, screaming, and crying- which was a little bit of a headache. I learned almost all of my horsemanship skills there. I groomed the horses before classes, I lead them all around (because the barn's thing wasn't to let the kids off the lead line until about 4 or so lessons), I worked with the kids, I mucked out stalls and pastures, I cleaned tack, I picked poop off the trails, and I did a whole lot more too. After a while, things became too much of a chore- 20 hours of volunteer work for a one lesson off walk, trot, and canter. Then, I met this girl named Kirann at school. She rode at my first barn and kept her horse there as well. She convinced me to come back to it, so I did. I was then riding at two different barns, old and new. Because the horses at my first barn were so perfect, it was a little bit of a culture shock at this barn because their horses were a little bit on the sassy side (the first horse I rode there was a calm, old mare that took really good care of me). Lessons were going great at both barns. But, I think that I was getting a little too full of myself, boasting to girls at the previous barn how I could ride naughty horses while they rode the perfect ones. I wasn't good rider when I said that either so it makes me want to bury my head now that I reflect back on it. As I progressed on to more challenging horses at the "new" barn, I started riding one named Zeus. He was (and still is) a very sassy little mustang. His story was a little bit tragic- but I will save that for another time. He is only about 14hh, but he is willing to jump anything for you. He hates flat work, he'll back up, throw some bucks, turn his head around and bite your toes, and spontaneously bolt. But once you got him jumping, he was so much fun. I remember falling in love with him, I was so convinced that I was going to buy him. He taught how to not fall off. And ever since riding him, I haven't fallen off- except for this really stupid time that I will tell you guys about later- except for this little haflinger pony that randomly threw a buck, I flew onto her neck while she was cantering around the arena, and then let go, landing on my feet (this was at my volunteer barn). One day, at my new barn, I was riding and a girl
