Buuuuuuut this is probably the least orderly year I've ever had.
We kinda did everything. But also nothing.
I didn't take a single lesson, haul off site once, go trail riding in a substantive way, or make it to a clinic of any kind.
We did, however, cross off a bucket list item for me:
|canter my horse bareback through a field
|jump bareback in a halter
|always be a unicorn
|who is this fancy lady!
|peep new saddle pad
|stay posted for more on this
And sometimes we did it in non-traditional ways:
|remember when she thought halters were optional?
Sometimes we just plain did non-traditional things:
|tiny dog was NOT THRILLED about this
|queue 70 lbs puppy exiting stage left
|Can your dressage horse do this?
We trained a new barn dog:
|the darling of all the barn ladies
The only time I made it to a horse show was when I accidentally ended up showing a mule at the state fair:
|NGL made me want ZB to have a mule baby
|that shine <3
Whether we played cowgirls:
Or dressage pony:
|you're welcome for the outfit
|sometimes you don't knock the mud off
I can always count on her to be my very best lady horse.
