Hey everyone! Its been a little while, sorry about that. Studying is so time consuming, but thankfully its over!!! My sophomore year of college is complete! Too bad I’ll have to stay all summer, so I only get a week off… Oh well.
In between studying, I was able to start training the pup for off leash stuff, and got a lesson in on Libby. Is it sad to say I’m pretty sure my training session with my puppy was harder then riding the baby?? We flatted for a bit, and did a little course. She was so good, jumped me out of the tack twice, gotta get myself more secure, and was just overall a very good girl. She’s starting to understand what the rein pressure means, which is awesome, considering we’ve only had her for two weeks at the most now. I really liked that she was started in dressage, but we’ve had to reteach her certain things because of it. But she’s already learned so much, it makes me excited for the future with her. My trainer suggested that the weekend I come back, we bring her to a little schooling show, and she would ride her around for me. If its not to expensive, I really hope to be able to do that with her, as Im sure she’d benefit from it.
On the saddle search: I have been emailing back and forth with the rep from ADT, who does free fittings by the way, and she has been trying to work within my schedule to set up a time to try saddles. She has been so awesome so far. I love companies that have awesome customer service, and I have a feeling if I do end up with ADT, that I’ll be very happy.
Also, since I’m home, I’m going to stop by the local consignment shop here to try some of their saddles. From their last updated list on Facebook, it seems like they may have some good options for me. They even have a Voltaire saddle in that I’ve been dying to just sit in.
And some more good news. I have sent out emails to the Gainesville boarding places again, and the one that I really liked emailed me back and said there might be an opening!!! Someone is thinking of selling their horse, and if they do, they’ll move them to a training facility, meaning a stall would open up for MEEEE! This is the really nice place, probably the nicest in Gainesville, with a covered ring, nice well kept paddocks, and a very professional staff. The only thing is that there isn’t a trainer on staff, but thats fine since I’ll be bringing my trainer now in. Still, its always nice to have a trainer there…
