Mare Memoirs- Over Fences

I did a post a while back with some of my favourite "oh sh*t" moments over fences. As much as I love all those pictures (I really do... they crack me up & remind me not to take life too seriously) I thought I should add a compilation of my favourite "good" jumping pictures. Just so y'all don't judge us too harshly!
 She certainly can jump :)

Favourite Quotes

After a clean run around Kentucky's advanced course, Denny Emmerson galloped up to the final fence. Unfortunately, getting his greens & blues mixed up, Denny ended up jumping the Prelim course's's final fence. 
Not realizing his mistake, Denny was cooling his horse out and telling everyone how awesome the course was, when Jack LeGoff comes up to him and says "Denny, when the gods rained stupidness on the earth, they forgot to give you an umbrella"

pirouette is a two-track lateral movement performed at either the walk or the canter in which the animal makes a circle with its front end around a smaller circle made by the hind end, while bent in the direction of travel.

pirouette (literally "whirl") is a type of dance turn on one foot. It is performed with turnout in ballet

When people were asked to send in their pirouette videos for world ballet day, I desperately wanted to send in one like this:
After all, it's still a pirouette!

A Non-Post

One day, I'd like to have time to start blogging regularly again. Unfortunately with two midterms tomorrow, that day is not today. Cadence & I have had an interesting season.... to say the least.... and I desperately want to get my thoughts about it down on paper. But between school, work, horses, and everything else I try to fit in to a day (physio, ballet, sleep, etc.) there's not much time left over for the necessities, like eating, let alone "luxuries" like blogging. I do miss it though.
