How We Met

[a couple of new ones=] ]
ok first of all i had to convince my dad.which was not easy cause hes NOT at all a animal person!
where i ride at we go on group trail rides a lott! and the my friend michelle needed another horse to take that could be ridden so she temporarily traded one of her horses that you couldnt ride with "joy!" and we went on the trail ride it was fun.I didnt ride joy[michelle did] and i didnt really think much of her.I knew she was for sale but for to much than we were willing to pay so i didnt want to get attached to her.But then a few weeks later michelle called and asked if we would be interested in her cause they lowered the we were like OK! i gotta admit the first time i rode her i didnt like her.i mean i didnt not like "her" she was just to lazy 4 me!but mom was like well give her another shot.i was like huh. well ok. so the next times i would ride her in the field and she perked up a LOT.she loves to run! so im soo glad i gave her another shot!&& as of 8-21-07, she officially MINEEE!!:D

its been a while, how is Joy? well its been snowing here for about a week and its really piling up, its the most snow in Portland Oregon for the month of december,the most it has ever snowed in a LOONG time and i think it broke a record. anyways the first few days was really fun. but then it good worse and froze over and now its nasty and i haven't been able to see pearl for about a week or more. But i know shes warm( i put her large blanket on) and the barn ppl said they would feed her and clean her stall 4 me. but i really miss her :( and in addition i can't drive!! i hate relying on my parents to take me to work and anywhere else i need to go. i wish the truck i drive (a suburban) had 4 wheel drive but it sucks and doesn't :( well how have u been? looking forward to xmas? i know i am :)

good luck @ ur show! pearl and i went on our first endurance last saturday! we went 25 miles( i know i was goin to do the 10 miles but my family and trainer convinced me that pearl can do it!), the first half(12 miles) was great, it was kinda chilly and foggy but was really enjoyable. Pearl was havin fun too. well the vet checks went great and she passed with flying colors. I thought her heart rate would be high, but it was perfect. The second leg of the ride (13 miles) was a bit more challenging, pearl was getting tired and there were alot of hills. I didn't think that the people that put on the rides looked for places with hills but thats what endurance riding is kinda about so i guess i didn't do all my HW. anyways i had to get off her for this one hill, it was so steep. but soon she found her second wind and we finished 24th. im not sure out of how many, i think about 30 people did the 25 miler. The only things that went wrong was that pearl got a nasty girth sore, i thought for sure that the rope girth would fix that and the fact that i moved the entire girth attachment back. And we got lost a few times so it was kinda a waste of poor pearly's energy but it was only a few yards until i realized i was on the wrong trail. But i think pearl had fun. Im goin to stick to 25 milers and below cuz thats about all both of us can take. it was a great first time endurance ride. Oh ya i was going to spend the night over there in the trailer but my aunt rescheduled her saturday and we went really early that morning. I was happy cuz i really didnt want to stay the night there in the horse trailer by myself. It turned out great, pearl worked hard but had fun, i think she slept good that night. Bless her heart :) heres a vote

I just made a new video starring Pippin. It's called Pippin's Love and the link is above. I thought you might enjoy it. I also have new photos on Prince's and Eddie's pages. I would love for you to check them out. My sister also uploaded a new video of her parrot, Poirot, babbling away. The video is called Poirot's Babbling. I know she would love a visit from you. Have you been watching the Olympics? We have and they're pretty exciting. The opening ceremony was the best ever and we were just awestruck. Well, here's a vote for you and enjoy riding. ttyl

wow that sounds like soooo much fun!! do you have to do the halter class with it? or is that just under the catergory of ranch classes? thats good that the horse might not have to square up cuz i don't think pearl would! im going to search the internet and try to find a show w/that class in it right now! i bet pearl would love it and i would too! the ranch style sounds like my kind of show. do you have to do flying lead changes in them? well heres a vote. im so happy you told me about this.

LOL wow what a show! that sucks that things turned out like that. i can really relate to how you felt! im fairly new to all this showing stuff and when you aren't totally prepared things happen. i am so happy that my trainer/aunt usually goes with me to shows. she has done it so many times and has saved the day at my shows more than once. ok now to the bad show experience, the whole day started badly, my aunt truthfully didn't want to take me that day although she never said that but i could tell. anyways so we figured the show would be slow so we took our time and my aunt clipped pearls whiskers which she has never done and hates!! so that took like 30 mins or more. so we finally get to the show and find out the equitation classes are over and they are starting trail. So i signed up for a in hand class but pearl hasn't ever done that kind of class, i did it so she could see the obsticals first, but to only find out its such a small easy course and nothing is scary . so all the other horses were perfect and trotted right next to the handler and all that well pearl decides she doesn't want to listen to me at all or trot so to make short it was really enbarrising! so i get on pearl and i find out you have to countercanter a few strides in a very small space. Pearl can't do that yet! ( i know its really sad that she can't but she had a bad trainer when they broke her, i've spent the last few years undoing his/her training and teaching her ours) anyway so i practice in the warm up arena but of course a horse can't learn that in a few minutes. so we go out there and stink! she wouldn't pick up the countercanter she wouldn't even canter and i had spurs on and i used them but she was so bad that day. well we got first but only cuz we were the only ones in the 14-17 class!! i also entered in an open class also and pearl did a repeat of the last class and we got 5th out of 5 people. i was really sad that the whole show was a mess. i should have practiced and prepared for the show but instead i went with uncleaned tack and a naughty horse! My aunt wasn't that upset she knows how pearl is and that shows with pearl are bound to be entertaining! anyways that was my WORSE show ever. i learned alot from that show experince and since then pearl has learned to countercanter and i know now that i need to give lots of time before hand about the show, to the people who are taking me and for me to practice and clean and prepare everything. well heres a vote is should stop now LOL

well thats great!! i would be really proud of her too! ya i know how some of those fancy western pleasure people are, and at times they do seem snobby(No offence also).Ya pearl has done some wierd things at shows also. like one time i entered in a western pleasure class and we didn't realize how hard the competition was, but anyway when they told everyone to canter pearl took off like a rocket and started galloping and flipping her head around, but when i got her clammed down we were still blowing past the other people and pearl was going as slow as she could at a canter. they were all looking at me like control your horse. it was just that she can't take 2 foot strides! But i would love to try that ranch class. they don't have that here yet, but maybe they will. what do you have to do in that class? im glad that you guys had fun at the show though! heres a vote. blog soon ~steph and pearl~

That's great that you're doing so well with Joy. You sure start school early. That's too bad. Yes, that is a pet deer. We rescued him because his mother had triplets and couldn't care for three. He almost died but he's doing so well now. We feed him goats' milk. Prince was so amazing today. I rode him this evening and he jumped again with such enthusiasm. His ears prick up when we start towards a jump and he starts cantering. I even raised on a little and he went right over. I'm so proud of him. It's amazing how much he's changed since I first started to ride him. He no longer spooks at everything and today for the first time I tried mounting him out in the field and he didn't try to bolt. I can't get over it. I also took Pippin out with the cart again and my sister drove him for awhile with her African Grey parrot. He seemed to like it. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

ya its been quite a while. pearl is doing great! we have been to a few shows this summer but none were that great. pearl and i don't do the western pleasure anymore it just wasn't our thing. we are sticking to gaming and trail. and maybe some time soon we will get to go on a endurance ride! pearl and i have been practicing and gettin in shape really hard, so both of us are in great condition to give it a try. it looks like you have been to a few shows also, and i read on your profile you also gave up western pleasure. i can see why it has become a really sort of boring show style. they are lookin for such slow gaits its unbelieveable! pearl and i never had a chance. i also like the gaits to be natural not so slow you go now where! well so how is joy? ttyl, it looks like you were able to find out how to add horses, thx for adding pearl. heres a vote

Hey, it's great to hear from. How have you been doing? I love the new photos. Yes, Pippin's looking really great this summer. He's much shinier and more muscular now that he's not such a baby anymore. There was a virtual horse show on here in which you entered photographs of your horse in different categories and then people voted. Pippin got the most votes so he won the grand prize which is free wormer for a year. It's a pretty good prize because it means that I don't have to buy any for awhile. How's Joy doing? I hope you get to ride her more now that it's summer. Well, here's a vote for you. ttyl

Hi again, hows it going with you and Joy. I am working Fox more often now that Spring has arived. Are you still having problems getting Joy to stand still when you mount. One thing that I do that helps it have your horse stand still for a few moments once you get on her and don't just get on her and go. Heres another vote for your pretty girl.
