Bel Joeor Sale and Giveaway!

Amanda from Bel Joeor is hosting a big sale on her Etsy site and a giveaway on her blog!  She makes beautiful saddle covers and bags.  I highly recommend checking out her shop and entering her contest.  


Day 2- The last time you rode a horse and what you did

The last time I rode Ellie was yesterday, after not riding her for two days because of a yucky, nasty rainstorm that has left most of Maine without power.  Uggg!  Thank goodness we have a generator because we are told it could be days or even up to a week without power.  We haven't had school either, so it has been a strange week!

Mostly we just tootled around the ring (which is still pretty mucky from the rain) and went out into the adjacent field to trot between the Christmas trees.  My goal was just to get her forward and bending.  I had no real agenda to work on anything.  Without a ton of sunlight left and with the footing not 100%, I just wanted to get on.

We have been working on getting out and about around the farm too, so I did hack her up and down the driveway.  She is getting super brave and I am happy for that!  None of these pics are from our most recent ride, but from the last ten days or so!  Sometimes I forget to bring my phone with me LOL!


This was last week when we hacked in her pasture

Cattle are still the devil, but at least instead of being scared of them, she is now extremely disdainful LOL!  

Messy hair, don't care

We have a nice 1000'+ driveway to hack up and down to cool out!

You're so much better at a) keeping up with the blog prompts and b) doing all the things than I am! Getting on and getting going is a challenge, especially when the weather is crappy. I just want to stay on the couch!

i love that Ellie is so brave!! charlie's spending a lot of time walking up and down our farm's lonnnngg drive way these days too. it's good for legging up!
I hear you! It was chilly and slightly rainy today and I did NOT want to ride. But I also knew I would regret it and forced myself out the door. Sometimes I feel like I have to force myself out there a lot, but I never regret it! ;-)
She is trying so hard to be brave for sure! That is good you have a long driveway as well. It works out well!
