I am so incredibly proud of this guy! My little boy did so well in dressage today! I was actually quite nervous with this being his first dressage show, but he exceeded my expectations a million times. While trying to get him groomed and plait his main, he was rather stubborn and defiant and seemed quite nervous. We made our way to the arena and waited our turn. He was very shifty and antsy, and all I could do was reassure him. But man, I got him out in the arena to begin, and I barely had to direct him! His collected walk was very smooth and elegant. But OMG! His extended trot! He just floated across the arena like a butterfly! Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee! He was very flashy today and aimed to impress. Competition one down, two to go!
Did some grid work with Ty today!! Honestly I haven’t done grid work in forever and it’s always a fantastic way to work on strides, spacing, and timing. It was definitely an experience today. Ty is a lot stronger then I initially thought. I was having to use a lot of strength today in pulling him back, considering he has a habit of speeding up in a line. I think he just gets to excited but it’s not a habit you necessarily want so we are going to have to work on that. I also figured out that he is sensitive in his mouth and DOES NOT like being pulled on. I learned that the hard way when he almost bucked me off a few times today. Of course I’m not perfect! At times my hands get a little rough and high up, it’s a habit I’ve been working on and shall continue to work on to break. Ty hates a rider with rough hands and prefers to have your hands positioned lower (around the abdomen/pelvis). Overall it was a good lesson and I’ve already learned a lot from him!! -

Araignée du soir, cauchemar 🕷
"Evening Spider" aka "Cauchemar" is to die for 😍 He is the newest member of my stable. Because my first Hanoverian was so lovely, I had to get this boy 🖤
Cauchemar's name is a play on the French saying that if you see a spider in the morning, you will have grief. If you see a spider in the evening, you will have hope. "Araignée du soir, cauchemar" translates to "Evening spider, nightmare"

Today our Students did Hunters, and played some games as well 😂! After that, some of us went to Moorland to do Liberty work with our horses, which was really fun & intresting! Good job everyone 🖤✨

Here is another edit that I am sooo late at posting for and I apologize!! I’m gonna have to pick my speed for the next edit to complete the row (I haven’t even started ooops) but if you have any ideas let me know! Anything with free riding is what I’m looking for.
I did change some features and added some boots, took out the dyed hair she had before and added some jingle bells on the horses tail👌🏻😊
- EDIT: yes I reposted sorry
So I decided to take out midnight today. Midnight is actually a retired showjumper and spends his days out in the field and I take him the odd hack. I decided to give him a little jump because I miss jumping him so much. He Really enjoyed him self!!! He still has a lot of sass in him too 🤣 #sso#starstable

Hello Everyone! I’m back today with Jack and I decided to push his limits and see how far my baby boy could jump! Turns out he can actually jump just around 5ft. He is more comfortable with jumping 4.5ft though 😂. But otherwise our little schooling trip went well! Ye was amazing over the jumps and I felt way he loved his new bridle 😍. But we were going over this one fence, and he decided to go really long on me so got jumped out of the saddle and ended up landing on his neck 😂😯. He (being the good boy he is) waited for me to get back in the saddle and decided to gallop again once I got my self situated 😂. Silly boy I must say. 💕
Alright guys so this was my first edit actually moving the horses head and characters position and in my opinion it turned out alright. The phot itself could have been more clear and I could have added more detail and texture but I’m just not that advanced rn in my editing nor have the right software for it. But I do hope you guys enjoyed this post 💕

Today I went to try out a new horse. I didn’t get any photos but I am happy to say that I did buy him!
SN: chasing glory
Breed: English TB
Sire: chase the clouds
Dam: midnight dreams
Info: glory aka chasing glory is a OTTB he has been off the track every since he was 3/4 I didn’t know the exact age. He won 1 out of 5 races and his first owners had no use for him. He was sold many times but no one was able to bring him from his past. He can do walk, trot, canter, gallop and jumps well. I toke him out on a small trail ride and cross country trial which went well. He hates flat work with a passion but when I tried jumping him he pricked his year forward and jumped like a dream. I bought him as a project horse and I’m hoping to be able to go to some smaller shows in 2019 and 3 day event him in 2020

We are absolutely getting used to our new home! On one of the new pamphlets I received there was guidance to this area called a Riding Hall. It’s a free jumping arena and I thought to bring out my girl Double Choice, or Diana. She’s absolutely one with the obstacles, she loves to jump freely! That’s why when you’re riding Diana, let her do her thing, just glide along with her steadily. I managed to send @triviumeventing and @sinclaireventing a message asking if we could meet up tomorrow and they agreed! Until then, I hope you all have a lovely afternoon. •

Moose and I getting ready for a hunter/jumper lesson later on! I’m so excited 😁 (it isn’t for 2 hours but I wanted to spread out posts) Moose is such a fantastic jumper, just like Springy. It’s funny that both my horse and lease horse are mainly jumpers, even Molly was super strong in it! What can I say, I just really really enjoy any form of jumping. Other than XC jumps, they scare me a bit after what happened with Molly 😬
Anywho, do you see how stunning Moosey looks in his saddle from @willowcreekeqcentre ?!? 😍 I purchased it a bit ago and finally got the chance to use it today. I originally purchased it for Springy, however I messed up the sizing and got a size too big. I was just about to swap for a smaller size when Moose came along, and luckily he’s got a little more width 😉 it’s so comfortable and looks so good too! My favorite part about purchasing from @willowcreekeqcentre is that for every saddle purchased, $100 is donated to @gallop.n.go.rescue! Can’t wait to start using it more often on this little fatty ahaha💕 -
This morning Springy and I got all packed up to head off to South Hoof! As I’m sure most of you know, this week there is a big endurance ride down there, all around the island! I am taking Springy with me, and tomorrow will be all of the vet checks, cleaning, hanging out, and preparing mentally and physically for the big ride. However, you were able to stay the night tonight for a little hangout with all the other guys and gals participating 💗 I believe there’s a bonfire planned for later on! Can’t wait to meet up with everyone :)
Thought this would be the perfect chance to show off Springy’s newly decorated stall for the season!❄️🎄 I did it last weekend, but figured it’s about time we show it off. Kinda wish I got the photo from the other side so you could see Moose’s new stall too 🤣💞 he already made such a mess out of the hay! Moose is a bit of a handful, but nothing I can’t take care of :)
