This past week I have learned many things. The highlights are:
I learned that I actually was doing something right with Star when she started jumping all over the place during groundwork. She was listening!
Approach and retreat. I had never actually SEEN it done so watching it was pretty cool.
Jadzia LOVES vehicles, people, and dead snakes. And moonlight runs, though she hates getting left behind. She can yowl!
Getting up very early improves my concentration in the morning.
Choose wisely what you do with your spare time in the morning. Just because you can have a blast doesn't mean it's a good idea.
Friends are very important to me. Possibly more important than family. But only God is there, not regretting a stupid mistake, not sick, not injured, forever. Praise the Lord I have both of my best friends still!
Also, I can have 11 different songs have separate parts running through my head in half an hour. Happened this morning! I guess I was thinking too much. it was interesting, though. One line was all too familiar. "....heart beat against me."
I also saw a shooting star!
I bought 11 foot black Finesse Reins and a 5 inch short shank B3 bit.
I also sat in several different kinds of saddles. They were amazing! I physically saw and touched both them and Cradle Bridles (drool!) for the first time last weekend. I also wanted a black Western bridle. The Parelli stuff is high-quality and expensive. And cheaper at their events than online!
I can't wait to have pictures of Star in her bridle. But we're starting on line first this weekend and I'm not even bridling her until next weekend and getting on her until the 31st at the earliest. I need a good groundwork foundation first.
My beautiful Star.
