before you read look on the post before this.
on march 10th i was driving to the barn at about 8:00am and we got a phone call, my mom answered and she turned the car around and she looked back and had tears in her eyes and i knew it wasn’t good, she turned around and told me jazz didn’t make it. i started balling my eyes out, i looked out the window and wanted to die. i never wanted to ride or see anyone again. on march 11th we had a funeral thing at the barn for her, it was very sad but i’m glad we did it. bella was the very first horse i ever road after jazz passed away, and riding wasn’t the same, i started crying and i didn’t feel good.. but that same lesson i switched with someone and i got on eddie, this all happened on march 12th, i got on eddie and right away i felt something. i felt better then i did when i was on bella, i felt happy. ever since march 12th i’ve been riding eddie. eddie is my love, he’s my world i don’t know what i would do if i lost him. me and him and both come so far, we have jumped the highest either of us have ever jumped, 3’9. he thought me how to sit bucks, sit over jumps, and so much more. i love eddie so much. i have a new coach named holly, she was there for me when jazz passed away and so was shane, but after that shane left and it was only holly. holly was the one who brought me this far in my riding. she’s the reason i ride eddie and she’s the reason i have jumped 3’9 so a huge thank you goes out to holly💗
this is my story of my riding, what’s yours? ~tagged people who ride💗~
everyone who rides has a different story, but here’s mine. i had this horse named spice, i was in love with him, he was my safe place and my world.. on may 4th 2016 he passed away, i went to the barn ready to ride him and he was gone.. his name plate was gone and so was he. but lemmy back up abit. i road at a barn called.. well i forget the name. but at that barn i only could do walk trot, then i had to switch barns because it was closing down and i had to leave poet :( then i went to restless pines about a year ago for a couple months and there i did walk/trot/canter/jump but eventually i realized there was no horses there for me so i left and went to todd hill i was there for about 3 months but i just wasn’t happy. i couldn’t find any horses that i truly loved and it just wasn’t working for me. i took a moment and realized something, this one barn called boulderwood was always there, i went there even when i was at other barns and that’s where i was truly happy. about 2 and a half years ago i met jazz, she took over in spices stall and right away i fell in love. she was abused when she was younger so she had a rough past but i still loved her. 2 people helped me at boulderwood, cassidy and caitlyn they helped me achieve all my goals and become a better rider. they helped me jump jazz and keep her under control. then on october 2ed just this year james sold the place to a lovely family. at this time caitlyn and cassidy were leaving, that broke my heart because they helped me so much and they were a big part of my life. a new coach came, her name was shane. i was scared that if i was put on jazz and i did bad i would never be able to ride her again, but cassidy helped me through that and we did very well, i was put on jazz everyday i was there. and me and jazz both learned new things. i jumped the highest i ever have with her 2’9 and that was scary but i stayed on, and i trusted her. but on march 9th jazz got very sick, thankfully i was with her the whole time. i was told she had a 10% chance to live and i was heart broken but i believed it would be okay, i had my friends to support me.

HAPPY FINNEGAN UPDATE! Last month, we asked for your help and you all came through! You remember Finnegan, this darling boy who arrived at @fairfaxcountyanimalshelter, after being struck by a car. Together, our Facebook community pulled together more than $3,000 in support of this precious pup. The scrapes have healed, his leg fracture has been repaired, and despite a partial tail amputation due to is his injuries, Finnegan is one (short) tail-waggin' happy boy. He continues to recover in foster care, having a ball with his foster siblings ❤️ ANNOUNCING FINNEGAN'S FUND: In Finnegan's honor, and to help support the injured and sick dogs and cats received by our Shelter throughout the year, we've established Finnegan's Fund. If you would like to continue helping pets like Finnegan, a gift to the Fund will help ensure we are ready for the next emergency medical situation. Learn more at www.ffcas.org/Finnegan

Lycka är en egen knasboll 🐴❤ Efter att ha lagt tömkörning på hyllan ett tag eftersom ingenting fungerade så har vi nu tagit upp det igen. Första gången gick okej men idag gick det verkligen bra. Pengen har ramlat ner och plötsligt kan lilleman både följa spåret, gå rakt fram och svänga åt båda håll. Göra hyggligt runda volter samt start, stopp och övergångar. Utan att bita i väggen och fippla med allt som går att fippla med 😁. Nu ska vi nog sikta på att vara med på en träning för @annika.skoog2 för att kunna börja utbildas lite. Även små steg tar en framåt 👍🙂
