Thirty Six

36 days until I get into a car with my Uncle, grandparents and mom and head off to BC for my cousin’s wedding. I leave Carman on September 5th, and a week after that I fly from Kelowna, BC after celebrating my 19th birthday with my grand-parents, to Vancouver- where I spend 8 hours hanging…

Oh Deer

 Got back into biking and strength stuff tonight, and this was my view! This was about 6 miles into my 8 mile ride on gravel roads. Here are some other shots I took while biking!

Beautiful

Got to Legacy Sports Clinic half an hour early today, the same time the receptionist arrived. So I waited in my car like a dork for another 15 minutes, then got out and managed to set off my own car alarm in the process. Embarrassing moment of the day number 1! I then spent the…

Double Trouble

Last night I had two lessons with Charlene, one on my boy and one on Cash.  It’s amazing to me how much Will transforms and relaxes in that arena. Every time I have a lesson there he moves so nicely and he’s completely with me on everything. The atmosphere there is so great. We didn’t…

Support

Rode in an Andrew Curry clinic today, after working from 6am-11am spraying 4000 rows of wheat. The clinic was pretty good, I was very stiff in the saddle because my back is not great today-but I’m pretty sure the only one who noticed that was me and probably Willard. We started off our session with…

Break…?

Worked a half day today, and left at lunch to head downtown for my appointment at the AT centre. My back pain has subsided a little this week, but it’s definitely still there. I still have an appointment with a specialist next week, but I went in to see my AT so that maybe I…

All This Beauty

It’s been a rough week. After the last show, my new back pain didn’t wear off like I’d hoped. It stayed around till.. now. By Thursday of last week ( a long week of not functioning at all for pain) I called my AT from work and asked her opinion. She said that because random…

Build-A-Horse

Day three went very well! We started off the day with an Adult Amateur Medal equitation class. My course was all right, a little messy though. We didn’t place in that one- there was some big competition. I was very happy with him nonetheless though, and the flat portion (sitting trot) went SO much better…

Day 1 and 2 at Beach

Day one: We didn’t actually do anything till about 2, so a lot of wandering around and watching. Our first class was the Junior Amateur 2’9.  We had an excellent round. All our strides were right, and we had a nice flow. Unfortunately we didn’t place. There were quite a few people in the class,…
