1.) I am a total bleeding heart. I cannot leave an animal, human, being in distress. It drives the mrs hightechpony nuts as that’s how we got Lucy, Catsby, Nymeria, Dutch and Storm haha but I have a huge heart and I would give my shirt off my back to a stranger if they needed it.

2.) I am very kind. I don’t say mean things about others, put others down or get catty. It’s just not my thing.

3.) I am learning the art of patience and lack of emotion in horse training. It’s fascinating to see the results.

4.) Animals have always liked me. It’s something I’m very proud of!

5.) I am very honest.

I tag all you guys! Go!

This is scary to say…

But I am giving up my amateur card. I always ALWAYS ALWAYS said I wouldn’t do it if it affected Emma negatively.  Since we are campaigning for the Pre-Greens, my status is irrelevant…. I can’t ride her in any amateur divisions anyway as it will DQ her from being able to do the Greens.  We will be showing 2’6” locally in the Green division this year and schooling 3’-3’3” at home.  We will most likely move up to open (3’) the end of next year with the plan to move to 3’3” for 2016.  I will do the 3’3” for a year and the regular first years (3’6”) and she has the scope and talent to do the second years (3’9”) so we’ll see if we we move up to that…  If I’ve got the balls to jump that high HA!

I want Emma to be the first horse I do a derby on… And I know my trainer can take us there.  My horse has the ability and I do too… We just need to believe in ourselves.

My trainer will teach me every day. I’m going to be riding different horses and most likely summer 2015-early 2016 I will start teaching up downers and jumping basics.  I have several job offers but I have declined them to spend the next year or so working daily with my trainer.

I have noticed she has gotten more critical of me and sharper with me now that she knows I want to do this professional- coming down hard on me for “rushing” Emma today through a counter canter transition.  It made me smile because she would only be tough because she wants me to be successful.

So yeah… I guess the short of it is that I’m going to try and do this.  I will NOT be a mediocre backyard trainer.  I refuse to be.  If I’m doing this, it’s for real.  Yes, I want to make riding more affordable but my kids will be safe, well schooled and confident and capable of being winners on ANY circuit.

Guess what I got for my birthday!!!!! :D

TBT when we bought Lucy for the second time as my 23rd birthday present!

She had NO idea I bought Lucy back for her. She burst into tears and basically bawled like a big baby before asking if we could take her home in her ford focus haha!

A lot of people ask me when I knew I was in love with you.

thehightechpony:

And I think I always knew. From the moment I first met you I always felt comfortable… even when I was nervous or excited or a thousand other emotions I always felt safe with you. You’ve always felt like home to me. I have never felt like the world could end so long as…

Also applicable to Emma ;-)
