☆I'm having so much fun riding Dela and Klein the past few weeks☆ I am looking forward to having Tassin and Her Pony and Riley's Western Mustang and Blue Heelers home from WA to go trail riding. September 5th will be here soon thankfully♡♡

There was a day where I would have made excuses and not road alone (okay Talia was playing with the turkeys while I road but...). Amazing/Ugly how fear shows up in our lives. I'm so thankful for the work I did with Melodee Kerr to stretch through my fears!!! It was not a fear of horses but other fears that flooded into my horsing around.

3rd Overall for the Adult Mounted Division 2021 MYWY event!
I can still hardly believe Klein and I did this with the incredible support of Calvin, Riley, Tassin, Talia, Hilary, Zack and so many more♡♡
When I applied for the Mounted division it was simply to not complete against Tassin, but it became much more as a choice to face fears personally and even asked my friend Melodee Kerr to share her secrets to acknowledging fear and stretching past it. I'm so thankful for the personal growth I've gained and the positive impact it has on my family!
Klein was definitely the horse Heavenly Father needed me too have. He was very reactive and had a little want to respond with aggression. When experienced mustang trainers say "that one is reactive", your knees shake a little. As I allowed Heavenly Father to stretch and grow me and his promoting to use the tools he has given me to stretch past fear Klein and I became quite the team and I'm excited to continue our venture together.
When I left for the final event my 2 goals were to ride Klein safely at a walk and support my 2 young adults who were also showing to the best of my abilities, I left having conquered and exceeded both goals!

My husband and I have made the big decision to pull Klien from the sale. This is not a light hearted decision, Follow through to my commitments is very high in my strengths and pulling him was very very hard but Cam said it best "you can never get that one horse back" and Klein is it for me♡
I do feel for those of you who were excited for the chance to have this special guy in your home. I know you are bummed 😔 please know how many tears I cried for you knowing this is so late in the game.
May you all find you One Horse That All the Others Will Be Measured Against ~ Love Christina Grace Roorda

130 and days of Dedication, Perseverance, Growth Mentally and Emotionally all for the Goal of Bettering our Horsemanship and 4 Mustangs lives! Tassin and Her Pony, Riley's Western Mustang and Blue Heelers and myself have spent the last 130 days genteling 4 BLM Mustangs from Oregon that we are showing at a final event in Cle Elum Washington this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We didn't do this alone we had the support, love, prayer, and mentoring from Calvin, Talia, Hilary, Hannah, Klaassen Family, Shannon, Kia, Harley & Dixie, Lisanne, Liv & Vernon Roorda, Nikki, Morgan's Family, Nancy, Marie~ We could not have done this without the blessings you each brought to us in your unique way ♡

We are grateful for our small cattle ranch that is funding part of this venture, the hay we make to feed the extra heads of horses, and the beef that keeps our bellys full.

Mustang Discovery Ride
You 2 are wonderful ladies with very different strengths that mess well when the rubber meets the road (or shell I say the hoof meets the trail). Thank you both for your mentoring and coaching.

TSC Laurel, MT
Thank you to your knowledgeable managers and great costumer service, oh and the hay!

Pretty toes for all 4 MYWY mustangs!! My Dear friend Tasha has been helping Riley and I learn natural balance trimming this summer. I'm so grateful for her sacrifice of time and energy to share her knowledge ❤
Ty and Laney Thanks for running to fill water over and over again yesterday as we trimmed in the heat 🥵
All 4 horses stood very well with occasional pull away but nothing that could not be easily corrected.

This is our unedited 7th or 8th ride (someone should be counting😁). He was a little interested in people, horses, sheep, goats, and cattle being unloaded but still pay enough attention to make it a safe walk around the warm up area.
💯I'm kinda falling for this guy big time ❤

Talia is a total trooper ♡ she has been mostly patient with all the horses and haying we have bone this summer. Last night when I finish up my ride on Klein, he walked over to Talia and nuzzled her as if to say thanks for hanging out with me yet another evening.

Last night's ride focused on walking until asked to stop, forehand and hind quarter turns and stopping on a dime. Plus mounting from the ground and not being bothered by the obstacle work going on out side the round pen with Denny and Tassin.

#6362 Klein First Ride!
Riley and Tassin always have my back and Talia tries but sometimes she has had enough and this morning was one of those times that's what you hear in the background 🙃
Inspite of all Klein was a chill sole. We backed, bent, walked, forehand and hind quarter turns.

Yesterday I ground drove Klein once again, worked on backing, walk halt, walk trot transportation, trot halt, and halt to trot. He was a little anxious at first but settled down nicely. Might have had something to do with the fact that I was just plan crabby yesterday morning 😔🙄🤔 a few minutes in Tassin called me on it and I took a minute to pray and sort my thoughts and fear then went on with a great session 😃
Yes Riley is rolling his eyes at my silly noises from behind the lens

07/06/2021

Klein got to walk with me and the 4H club through a 4th of July parade and was a pro!! He did stop to look at a few things but never spooked! Here is a video of Tassin and Klein, I was waiting to unload him until I had our 4Hers all ready to go BUT Tassin had a different plan LOL When I turned around and saw them walking around my first reaction was slight panic "what if something goes wrong and he hurts Tassin or bolts away from her" was my thought. Then it hit me, CHILL OUT MOM! he is walking calmly taking in the sights and sounds ☆YOUR HORSE IS SOLID GIVE THE CREDIT HE DESERVES☆

Hot days call for all night haying thanking HeavenlyFather for every bale that ties, early morning horsing around, hot afternoon parades waving until your hand falls off and sitting with a pile of friends at the red lodge rodeo instead of napping
Why? I asked myself today as I unloaded the ponies and pitched hay in the heat before sprucing up for the rodeo

♡All for Family, Freedom and Horses♡ I do all this for the grin on my children face, the pride in Calvin's stature as he throws hay in -10 degree weather knowing that his hard work is feeding cattle and horses that feed his and keeps them grinning, the succes I feel when I look fear in the face as I send my children in to a pen with a wild one and coach them to succes or meet a person goal, watch my once young ones make awesome decisions from lessons we have learned, I have the freedom to raise my family to honor heavenly Fathe r live with integrity...... the list goes on and on

I untacked Klein out by the horse trailer and Tassin stole him and yells over her shoulder "He needs a walk and grass, bye!"

Been a little while since I've posted~
Klein and I have been to 4H horse camp and focusing on doing things that horses do normally like being caught and led to the trailer to be brushed and tacked up then going through ground work with "mom" interruption. Hopefully we will get a few ground driving sessions in and be ready for a our first ride.
Klien got to be a teacher at horse camp and show off his good manners and calmness around big crowds while getting his teeth floated. I also clipped his brand in Hope's that it would be more clear- nope it's not a clear brand at all 🤔
I truly appreciate Kliens willingness and ability to calmly decide if things are a true scary threat or just something to work through.

Not a happy situation, but good opportunity for another esperance. This week at horse camp our horses are getting exposed to helicopters dumping water on a very close fire and handling it in style, looking up calmly each time they fly over.

Klein went to work with Tassin and Her Pony today for the Summer reading program kickoff! He was a little nervous when 20+ children crowded around him but within a few minutes of me scratching his neck while a gave a short educational chat on BLM mustangs he was engaging and reaching his nose out for pats. We had a 4 panel pen set up for him to keep the children from creating too much pressure or running up behind him. He handled people all around the pen, looking around and moving from person to person for loves. Tassin and Riley's Western Mustang and Blue Heelers did wonderful sharing there love of horses with the children and parents who attended.
We also brought Tassin's Mustang mare Misty and Spud. Once we wrapped up at the library Tassin and I walked to the local coffee shop with Misty for coffee!
I can hardly wait to get Big Sky, Denny, and Cinch far enough along to safely go out and about 😍
