To start off, I know the quality sucks, bare with me. So I rode lexi for the first time in a week. She was a very fresh, spunky mare, with a ball full of energy. My riding sucks, but I wasnt focused on myself, I was more focused on lexi. I "fell" off, but at least it was a super slow fall and I landed on my feet, if you would even consider that a fall lol. On the flat we did some bending circles. She still isnt budging to bend. I do lots of streching exercises with her, but shes still super stiff. Definitely a lot looser to the right. It's a challenge for me as a rider and for her as a horse not getting of what I ask. It's very frustrating, this whole ride was frustrating for not only myself, but for lexi. But it's just another wall we have to make over. It might mean we have to take a few steps back, but we can do this💪🏻 #horsesofinstagram#lexiandlexi#arabian#arabianofinstagram#horse#barn#trot#canter#jumps#jumping#rushestojumps#mareproblems#ponygirl#pony#bareback#ride#tricks#lexithearabian#tackless#failfriday#fail
A pinch-me-I-can't-believe-I-live-here kind of evening with Kate and all three horses (Q was ponied alongside Grif). Swipe ➡️ for the sunset.
My heart is happy. I don't think I will ever cease to be grateful that I call this place home and get to enjoy it's beauty from horseback. 😍
Lots of carrots for the best boy💙
Completed our first 25mile race last weekend. I’d say 7th isn’t too shabby for two very green members of the endurance world. Also it was downpouring for the first 12.5 miles soooo.
