Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

Blaze is my Confidence

so I got my Savvy club DVD yesterday. and watched the whole thing. and I have come to realize that I'm allot like that girl. just with people and new places. and not riding. I am RBI. so I am very VERY shy the first time i meet someone. but I am getting better with that. but once I know someone I'm LBE/I. and I have figured out with blaze around I'm more confident. I can talk with ease. and I don't go RBI and hide. last year I went too the 4Th of July parade for the very first time. and blaze first time too. and if Blaze wouldn't have been there I would have been super RBI. cause it was just me and the guy who brought me. and I couldn't hide with mom/dad I wasn't too happy with the way everyone was hitting there horses. but anyways.why is he my confidence? I do not know. but I found it very interesting

Let me know what you think?

well it has been real crazy. sorry for not posting anything. but Blaze got hurt. and I thought it was real bad. but next day he was fine thank goodness! but anyway yesterday I had a fabulous ride on angel. she is getting so confident!! and got her ready on the ground and then put a bare back pad on her. and put the bit with my new finesse reins that I LOVE!! and got on. (first time riding her with a bit) and she is so light! she kept wanting to go back to the building but I just used a direct rein to correct her. I am also playing with her to maintain gait. she is getting good with the trot. canter she still will buck sometimes. but I got a few strides! and she has such a lovely canter! nice and slow. UN like blaze. LOL. but anyways...... I got her to go down to the lake. got her to go in just a bit. she was unconfined so I backed off. and then I got her to go over a small jump. (very first time with a rider) I didn't do big cause I would fall off cause her jumping is horrible. LOL! Then we had a very nice walk back to the building. she is doing so great. I am very proud of her!!!! she is so gentle. and I think she is gonna be real easy to teach more advanced stuff! but since she is RBI I'm gonna go slow and wait til she is ready to move to something more advanced!! NOW blaze's turn!!!!!!!

I have decided to start hill therapy with him to help his back and gait and just to be More relaxed. and I am dreading not being able to ride him for 6 weeks but if it helps him it is so totally worth it. and tonight I played with him. and I found a small hill for him to go up and down. and I was watching to make sure he wasn't limping. so I did some laps/ and he did Great he even of ford to do 5 laps at the canter going left :O!!!!!!!!!!!! he HATES going left. wow that was so cool!!! and he did 5 laps going to the right!! that is more than he has ever done with me just standing still!! it was REALLY cool!! and I am also teaching him how to bow between his legs! and he will go all the way to his head now!! and I will get pics as soon as my moms computer quites being mean! lol.

well I'm off to bed. just thought I would update everyone!!

Until next time Keep it Natural!!

Level 3 Freestyle PASSED!!!!!!

I just got the call about an hour ago from Carol Coppinger. and I passed my level 3 freestyle! YAY! here is what the eamil she sent said

Hello Hannah,

Thanks for helping me find your Audition!

It was a pleasure watching your Audition and your FreeStyle is Level 3!

To help your horse be more confident the Patterns are going to be the key to your success. Adding some follow the Rail, Corners game and Question Box will help your horse become more relaxed cantering. This will also help your lead changes become solid and complete. When he gets scared and in a hurry it can be difficult for the hind leg to keep up with the change.

Great job!

We look forward to helping you in your journey.

Please reply to this with your full name, address, e-mail, phone#, horse’s name, and Savvy#.

You should get your certificate within a couple of weeks or so. We are still working out the procedures.

Have a great day.


YAY! :)
