|The day I brought her home. I need new photos, she looks so different!|
|Our first show (that resulted in our first cooler)|
|First XC School|
I was casually looking for a new partner. I had a pretty short wish list:
1) Jump All the Jumps
2) Preferably no greys
3) Jump ALL the Jumps
4) Everything else is negotiable
|All the jumps. even the crazy ones!|
Dee checked all the boxes, and some of the ones I didn't even think about (Next time I will make it no greys and no pintos though. I'm so sick of purple shampoo).
|Who knew I needed a horse that would let me "pony" my dog?|
|Or would take me to my first Endurance ride?|
|Or do a dressage test aside, after only 2 other sidesaddle rides|
|Or learn silly tricks, just to appease my inner child|
Slowly but surely my little, overlooked, rockstar has helped me find my confidence again. We recently went XC schooling and we did the Prelim water line like it was no big deal!
|I can check Rebecca Farm off my life list|
Oxers (and triple bars) no longer have me quaking in my boots. I know we can successfully jump around a 1.0-1.10m stadium course. Dressage is still a major challenge but I have faith that we can get around any course thrown at us.
|Still one of the best moments|
I can't find the right words to explain what this horse means to me. All I can really do is leave this reminder: Life is too short to ride a horse you aren't enjoying. Find the one that matches you and the world opens up in ways you wouldn't believe.
|She sure doesn't look (or act) 19|
