Summer 2012

Sorry it's been so long since my last postings! I have been busy working at Rocky Ridge Ranch. I am home all this week so expect a few postings this week! But for now I'll tell you some interesting things that have happened so far.

Well this summer i am riding Gizmo again, and he is getting better and better. Now on trails he has finally slowed down a bit instead of riding up the other horses' butts. In the corral i finally got him to do, after 3 or four trys, a trot reverse with a camper following me, and i was so happy! Also on the trails he will do just about anything i want him to! he will step over logs, go on the rough beside the trails, and he is a good sport about it too. His neck reining is getting there, he gets it, but i don't think he fully understands that he has to keep moving away from the pressure on his neck. I love him so much, and he has lost some of his porky belly, since i have been riding him all day 5 days a week. My legs though this week were quite sore, as his saddle is a bit hard on the seat bones.

Ok so i thought i would have time to write a bit more, but i don't feel like it right now, (sorry!) anywho... i gtg and do something other than be on the computer so that i don't pack on the pounds this week, because i have lost an inch or two on my hips and waist and i want to keep it that way. Adios amigos!
