Chilly day today but glad the sun is out!!
Ponies in pink!
No, my socks don't match, but they are both pink. Sometimes you just have to get on with your day and not worry about the little things, like matching socks. 😆 They are boot socks, which are my favorite.
Everyone understood the assignment this weekend!
First picture is what is probably an acceptable amount of pink for a lesson in October. However I am not that person, so I went full out. for the win with the pad, polos, and pants.
Even the horses get in on the fun here!
No need for a vest most of today!!
Really liked this new shirt, great fabric. And sporting my pink sneakers on the odd occasion I join society off the farm.
Has anyone scheduled a mammogram yet? Early detection is crucial!
Norah (one of our lesson kids) came with the right spirit!! Love those pants. I made good use of my hoodie today with the wind going all day.
Out here life is great. Even though it is chilly, and wet, with nights like this, we are grateful for it all.
We love , the shirt and vest with embroidery are from them. As a horse owner, I can appreciate their prices and customer service. As a barn manager, I also appreciate their convenient supplement system and shipping.
Love my C4 belts, this one thanks to
And so begins 31 days of pink. Breast cancer is something that has had an impact on my family, and my barn family. So, to help raise awareness (and maybe make some of you ladies think about getting checked) I will wear an item of pink everyday this month and post a picture.
Enjoying the sky tonight, don't think we will have a view like this for a few days.
So excited that our new DragNFly groomer came today. .arenaequipment was great to deal with. Horses and riders are loving the footing (thanks to ).
Love mornings like this.
Getting the rodeo mood since we heard the PBR is in town.
Panda on the prowl.
It doesn't get much more inviting than this!
In general, we love fall and a break from the heat and bugs. But with it brings this. 😆
Nature doing a good job of decorating with Halloween in mind. I find spider webs fascinating.
Exciting things happening here!! Thanks to Footing Depot for the product and Monomoy Services for the work done.
Getting to be that time of year.
Haven't seen any snake activity, but there is a small one roaming around.
You just have to get out and ride in weather like this.
If you need a good picture of your horse, just put your miniature horse in the alleyway when a big horse isn't expecting it!
We all know this feeling.
Horses will always be horses 😂
Things to remember!
This is fundamental advice regardless of the discipline in which you ride, I have built my method and career around all of this, if you
Study the greatest horsemen in the world you will see all of the points in action. This was said by one of the best modern horsemen bill steinkrause.
“No. 1. Get your tack and equipment just right, and then forget about it and concentrate on the horse.
No. 2. The horse is bigger than you are, and it should carry you. The quieter you sit, the easier this will be for the horse.
No. 3. The horse's engine is in the rear. Thus, you must ride your horse from behind, and not focus on the forehand simply because you can see it.
No. 4. It takes two to pull. Don't pull. Push.
No. 5. For your horse to be keen but submissive, it must be calm, straight and forward.
No. 6. When the horse isn`t straight, the hollow side is the difficult side.
No. 7. The inside rein controls the bending, the outside rein controls the speed.
No. 8. Never rest your hands on the horse's mouth. You make a contract with it: "You carry your head and I'll carry my hands."
No. 10. Once you've used an aid, put it back.
No. 11. You can exaggerate every virtue into a defect.
No. 12. Always carry a stick, then you will seldom need it.
No. 13. If you`ve given something a fair trial, and it still doesn't work, try something else—even the opposite.
No. 14. Know when to start and when to stop. Know when to resist and when to reward.
No. 15. If you're going to have a fight, you pick the time and place.
No. 16. What you can't accomplish in an hour should usually be put off until tomorrow.
No. 17. You can think your way out of many problems faster than you can ride your way out of them.
No. 18. When the horse jumps, you go with it, not the other way around.
No. 19. Don`t let over-jumping or dull routine erode the horse's desire to jump cleanly. It's hard to jump clear rounds if the horse isn't trying.
No. 20. Never give up until the rail hits the ground.
No. 21. Young horses are like children—give them a lot of love, but don't let them get away with anything.
No. 22. In practice, do things as perfectly as you can; in competition, do what you have to do.
No. 23. Never fight the oats.
No. 24. The harder you work, the luckier you get."
Another beautiful ending to a great day. Not much activity out here due to the heat, but horses seem happy enough in front of their fans and plenty of fresh water.
I feel ya Panda, I am over the heat too. Hoping these clouds bring us some rain, but the horses will at least enjoy the wind
A beautiful end to the day, after the storm.
Happy Independence Day, America!
We definitely have some clean up after this last storm. We were really glad that the power was only out about 16 hours. No major damage, thankfully.
And it's a wrap! Upperville week is over! We had a great time going to watch some of our boarders compete and just enjoying the show grounds as always.
Another beautiful ending to another great day.

If there is one thing I cannot complain about, it is our views. A gift everyday.
I am sure we can all relate to this.
Not typical mid April weather today...
Spring break help.
Someone has decided blanket season is over...
Final (I think) snow of the season. Shorty's forelock is an indicator to the wind.
Spring has sprung!
