Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

Welcome 2014

Happy 2014 to you all!
Below a small compilation of our year together
One of my favorite days of just Laz and I together...this was something I had never really set as a goal, but we did it. WE DID IT
I rode my horse with such pride, happiness and awe that day

Here were my 2013 goals:
#1-Continue to keep Laz healthy, happy and sound---CHECK
#2-Work more on Laz's riding form (and MINE!)--STILL AND ALWAYS IN PROGRESS/GROWTH
A better balanced canter (sans attitude), a more active Trot and maayyybe some gallop work??
#3-Take a winter trail ride--CHECK(ING)
#4-Go camping with Laz--DIDN'T DO BUT HOPE TO
#5-Try jumping 12"-18" or X rails or Logs out on a trail--NOT YET
#6-Work more on our Parelli, (at Liberty?) and really try to focus on our partnership--CHECK
***We did two clinics (at other barns) and rode alone in the trails--not even on my list but so happy we did it!!!

GOALS FOR 2014

1. Keeping Lazarus happy/healthy/sound--always #1
2. Continue to work on our riding partnership (I have a lesson booked for Saturday as he's been so colt like lately)
3. Work on equitation and getting him interested and active (maybe introduce x's or rails on ground and work on in saddle if he's sound for it)

I don't really have anything in mind that I hope to achieve other than trying to do something new/different whatever may come. Another clinic? Riding out alone more? We'll see what is in store for us! 

I look forward to another fun year with my perfectly imperfect gentleman of a horse
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL AND YOUR PONIES!

  5. Glad the boy is doing well! Horses really are very good at keeping warm, even when coated in ice, no worries there. I only worry about overheating when people go blanket crazy, that can cause problems! Stay warm!
