It's My Lucky Day

Technically, my birthday isn't until this weekend, but I did happen to get one  present early:

The only present I'll ever need.  The Mare is now officially mine.  Its sort of an odd thing to write, because I don't think any amount of writing could accurately express my excitement, joy, and happiness.  So instead, I'll fill you in on some other things:
Sunday Cadence and I happened to ride with the western pleasure ladies who do their cone patterns with the other horses.  This was the third time she'd been ridden with another horse.  She's only ever been with Bronx and Zeedle before, so four new horses was very exciting.  Not to mention there was a little snow sliding off the roof.  We ended up standing and waiting around with them, and we even rode two w/t patterns :P  I was very impressed with my girl; she was very level headed, even when all the other horses left the arena.  Her canter still needs some work (Specifically to the right) but its getting better.
Next weekend, I'm going to England!  I can't wait.  Its somewhere I've always wanted to go.  Hopefully my coach'll be able to ride Cadence once for me while I'm away.  I'll only be gone five days, but that's a rather long holiday for her.
Lastly, I don't know what it is but I always look so much younger in any pictures of me when I ride, tack up, groom, etc.  Seriously!  I look like I'm 13 or 14 years old!  Maybe when I'm 40 I'll appreciate this, but by then it'll probably be making me look older.  I don't know why I'm feeling the need to post this... I think I need to get some sleep.


  1. Congratulations on Cadence! And have a great trip.
