My lope through on Silver today! 😊 Today was my first day riding her and I only warmed up in a small circle so please don't judge how I rode lmao. She was so good!
Silver is a friend's horse. She fell off bareback yesterday and hurt her ankle really bad so she let me ride Silver 😊
21.4!! 😍🤗 The reason I took it slow to second is because the two runs before this he dodged it. I am so proud of him and I could never ask for a better horse! 💝💝
Also watch me almost fall off at the end 😂😂 I got so scared because this weekend two people got SERIOUS injuries falling off just like that in front of the alley. One broke 3 ribs + got a concussion, one has bad head trauma and had to get her head stitched up. 😣
This was the tie breaker for first place. We won by a whole rings length! I’m so proud of Winnie and how much she’s been improving. Every single race she gets faster and faster and is the best she’s ever been. People keep asking me if I like her and are surprised we do so well together. I don’t know how Winnie used to be or what they know her as, but she’s almost near perfect for me 😊 vc: @equestrian.becca
Four beats, no hands 🐎 Clip clop clip clop! In case you haven't noticed, I'm a firm believer that you definitely don't need a bit to get that smooth gait. That doesn't mean all bits are bad! Obviously there are some situations, like competition or trails, where bits are required or you may want more control. Accidents happen and horses spook (no matter how well prepared you may be) and when you're in a place far away from home, it's crucial you regain control asap. When you have a horse that's taken over by fear, it's most likely not going to listen to pressure on its nose. Horses will let you know when something is wrong- for example, in india, thorn bits are widely used. Their horses are often visibly out of control and in pain. If a snaffle bit was really that bad for a horse, they would be freaking out! But many horses, Stormy included, work happily and relaxed in a snaffle bit. For Stormy, I have tried lots of bits and bitless options. None is better than the other. It's just a matter of what works for you and your horse. Let me know what you think.
Well.....today was very interesting. I rode Teddy instead of Luke. Teddy was the very first horse I rode. Remember...Teddy Is the one that lost his footing while on a trail ride and I thought we were going down!! But, we didn't. Whew!
Anywho, Teddy is umm....shall I say SENSITIVE!! He gets spooked at the smallest thing. So, my sunglasses fell off my head (won't do that again) scared the bejesus out of Teddy and he took off for the door!!👀 Not trotting, full fledged freakin running!!😯 But, l didn't panic (yeah right) stayed calm and gently slowed him down while my heart beat so hard and loud I thought it was coming out of my chest!!! Needless to say, I could have quit right then and there but I didn't. I had to stay calm to keep him calm. As my trainer said..."You handled that like a pro". All while inside hyperventilating and Thanking Jesus Teddy didn't run out that door.
Can't wait to go back. Oh and, I requested Teddy again. I can't let the fear of the unknown stop me from doing what I love! Oh and, that's Howard I'm petting. Fell in love with him too😊
