Tom and I participated in the Halloween dressage show at Chestnut Ridge farm this past weekend. It was only Tom's second time off property and first time at a horse show and he did awesome! It was a little hard for him to focus at times, but overall he held himself together beautifully. My main goal was to not die, but we ended up taking home some ribbons! (Added bonus! Lol) Excited to do some more with him now that we can get him on the trailer and know that he can handle being away from home (for those that don't know Tom, he is an ex race horse rescue that had to overcome a broken leg, herd bound issues, and trailer trauma in order to be at that show. Really quite a feat!)

This past month has been so busy! I'm behind on posting, but I'm going to try and catch up... First, Meredith and I rode in a hunter pace, led by the absolulety fantastic and fearless Jenn and Merlin the percheron. A hunter pace is basically a fast paced trail ride with jumps. We watched the weather all day because there was bad rainstorms predicted. It seemed like the bad weather was going to hold off until we were done, so we went for it but we got caught in a torrential downpour! All we could do was laugh and keep going! We went up and down huge hills, crossed creeks, and ran through a corn field (I would have been completely lost without Jenn. I was just hanging on for dear life Lol) Dixie and Squirrel were both fairly new this this but they did awesome! Such fun memories!

Scarlett and London participated in WNYDA's dressage clinic at Houghton college this past weekend. Both girls did a fabulous job and learned a lot! (My phone camera did not do as great of a job capturing photos, but I had to post something!) So proud of these two for constantly trying to improve themselves and their riding. Keep it up girls! 😊

The last 2 weekends Meredith and Dixie were busy at horse shows. At the Niagara county horse show, we took it slow and worked mostly on Dixie's flat classes because she had a week off due to a small injury right before the show. They took home reserve champion! Then last weekend at skibereen farm we moved up to the low and slow division (about 2 foot jumps) and they took home GRAND champion! Such great work from these two! Couldn't be more proud! Been such a fun summer just enjoying riding after all the hard work and training we have done ❀

Dixie and Meredith did an awesome job at the hasty hills horse show this weekend! Meredith has put in a lot of hard work and it shows! Flat classes have always been a challenge for Dixie. Having a race horse background, horses riding up behind her or passing by her in the show ring has caused her to want to turn the show ring into a race track and take off running. This weekend, they took 2nd in their flat class (among many other high placing ribbons for the over fences classes as well)! Such amazing progress! So proud of these two!

Tom and Riddick have recently decided that they are best friends! They will often be caught napping together, especially on sunny days!

We had a tree come down in a bad wind storm the other day. Chris chopped it up and asked if it was ok to leave it outside even though the horses could get to it. It was raining and only some of the horses were turned out in the indoor arena so I told him it should be fine, they probably won't even go out there. Our 2 mischievous ponies had to prove me wrong though by running laps at top speed back and forth from the arena to the pasture πŸ˜†

Meredith and Dixie did a wonderful job at the first Leg Up horse show of the season! They have come so far and I am so proud! At this first show last season, Dixie had to walk the ground poles because she was so worked up. This year, she went through multiple crossrail courses with no issues! We were prepared for some sass but got none! After so much hard work, now it's time to just have fun and enjoy riding! Congrats!

Dixie and I rode with Chad on Sunday. I was nervous because it was my first outing after taking a year off of riding to have a baby, but Chad was so kind and reassuring and Dixie did beautifully! So thankful to be back in the saddle!

*Warning: Some graphic photos*
We picked up our latest rescue about a month ago. A black and white paint pony with a damaged eye. Was told he is about 6 years old and was an Amish horse. Was sold to a family to be a kids pony, but the "pony-tude" was strong with him. He was a bit young and inexperienced for the family. So we picked him up. Got the opinion of 2 vets that said his damaged eye should be removed to make him more comfortable (He already was blind in it and he was rubbing it on things causing it to get inflamed). He had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and is recovering beautifully! He is such a fun, sweet guy. He will go into training as soon as he's healed. Look for him at shows and other events this summer! Oh, and I asked my 4 year old nephew what to name him and he told me "Squirrel Biter." Was definitely not expecting that. After laughing for a bit, we decided Squirrel actually wasn't a bad name (and I'm no good at coming up with names) So meet Squirrel ❀

Scarlett and Charlie took part in the Chad Basile clinic on Sunday at Dream Bo Stables. At first Charlie thought the work was rather difficult and tedious, but he warmed up to the idea after a little bit. Always fun to learn new techniques and see a horse/pony and rider improve! I think both pony and rider had a few "a-ha" moments that were neat to see ❀ (the camera on my phone doesn't take great pictures but still wanted to share)

On Saturday, Cheshire Ridge Farm in Bloomfield was kind enough to open their ring for schooling some different types of jumps. Meredith and Dixie went out to practice. After focusing on dressage for the last couple months to get Dixie (and Meredith) stronger and moving better, Dixie was a bit excited about jumping again! We took it slow and focused on keeping Dixie calm. They did an awesome job! Thanks so much to Cheshire Ridge for allowing us to come!

Mama cat tends to follow me around while I do chores or teach lessons (it's pretty adorable!) She found some sun today and it made her very happy. Fence posts make excellent scratching posts!

We help out more than just horses! Last week we had a bat in the barn that we trapped and had the spca pick up (didn't get any pictures of that). Today, we helped a snapping turtle cross the road in front of our farm. We took him out behind one of our pastures to try to ensure turtle, dogs, and horses all stayed as safe as possible. Just a day in the life! 😊

Last weekend Meredith and Dixie journeyed to Leg Up Stables in Geneseo to compete in the hunter show there. A few months ago, we went and Dixie was so excited we walked some ground poles. This time, we started off with some crossrails and then leveled up to 2 foot because Dixie was doing so well! We had people approach us and say they couldn't believe it was the same horse! Honestly, sometimes it's hard for me to believe too! lol But I know Meredith has put in so much time and effort while I have been unable to ride, and it has paid off 100%. So exciting to see them grow together as a team 😊 Fantastic job Meredith and Dixie!

Last weekend Meredith and Scarlett did a fantastic job at the dream bo horse show! Dixie and Meredith continue to make drastic improvements (consistently winning ribbons!) and Scarlett found out what it feels like to get her first first place ribbon! For once Dixie was the well behaved horse while Charles did not approve of the scarecrow and cornstalk decorations (they were very scary!) Great job ladies!

This is student Iris giving some love to Tom after having her lesson. Tom thinks the couple 30 minute walk trot lessons he does every week are exhausting! He says it's worth it though for the pets and treats afterwards. He loves the attention and getting told how handsome he is πŸ˜‰

Brag post #2 from the weekend... Scarlett went to her very first horse show with Charles and did awesome (to those who dont know Charles, he can be quite a difficult pony at times so that is no small feat)! The classes were huge with lots of competition and Scarlett still managed to bring home a ribbon! So proud of how hard this girl has worked to accomplish her goals! Hopefully, they'll get to go to one or two more shows before the end of summer to show off all their hard work 😊

On Saturday Meredith and Dixie competed in a horse show and I was blown away at how well they did! They completed a full course - without Dixie deciding to take the reins and turn the jump course into a race track! Lol Meredith did a great job of remaining calm as a cucumber and trusting Dixie to do right. It was amazing to see! They even moved up a level because the smallest level went so well. It may not have been perfect, but the fact that we were able to list more good than bad and focus on just "tweaking" some things instead of "not dying" (that was our goal when we first started horse shows lol) means the world to me 😊

Meredith and Dixie did an absolutely fantastic job at the Skibbereen horse show this past weekend! Could not be more proud!

These girls did an awesome job at our first horse show of the year! Couldn't be prouder! Meredith and Dixie worked on just taking it slow and having a calm ride (which is really hard for Miss Dixie) and still managed to get ribbons! Anna and Charles did a fantastic job on some difficult courses against many other (and much bigger) horses and still also recieved a ribbon! Charles was able to jump the flowers under the jump bravely which was a large feat for him. Great job ladies!

We bought Charles a fun googly eye fly mask. It's not easy to find tiny sizes! I buy new ones for all the horses every year and they tend to shred them by the end of the summer. Lol Here is what he looked like when we let him out and what he looked like when he came in for dinner...
