SUPER BUSY STEPHANI = UNPLANNED ABSENCE FROM BLOG 😅
HERE’S WHAT YOU’VE MISSED IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS
Hot/hungry Stephani picked a fight with Raglan over lateral work and lost when he got his #REVENGE by spooking at nothing during his cool down laps. (He dropped low and spun me right out of the saddle, but I landed on my feet and grabbed him before he could exit stage left. DON’T RUN FROM ME, HORSE.)
Raglan got #SUPERSLEEPED and the vet floated his teeth, cleaned his sheath, and put a microchip in his neck. I STUCK MY WHOLE ARM IN HIS MOUTH AND WHOA THAT’S A LOT OF TEETH.
We jumped. A LOT. And improved. A LOT. #PROUDPONYMOM (More on this to come!)
I went to Dallas and it was super duper hot, but also fun, but also made me sad? My feelings are conflicted, I’ll probably dedicate a whole post to unpacking this trip at some point in the near future.
Raglan was busy while I was in Texas; he had a training ride with TrainerM (her notes: his face wobbles around because my hands aren’t still enough, his poll needs to lift up because his head is too low, and he loses too much forward during his lateral movements—lots to work on but he’s definitely improved) AND HE WAS A LESSON HORSE FOR ONE OF OUR 4-H KIDS.
WANT TO STAY IN THE LOOP WHEN I’M TOO BUSY TO WRITE?
