"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

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."

lately Me ad Blaze have been doing LOTS of transitions, because he always goes fast when riding such as walk trot and canter, well his walk isn't really fast but everything else is......so Thanks to Cassie and Fran, I have been doing things to build his core, and to help him get slower in his gaits, and so I've been doing Transitions, and I haven't played with Transitions like I should have because before I did it and nothing never happened, little did I know I wasn't doing them long enough, and so I did it for more than an hour the other night, and around the end he started just ding a very slow jog, I was like OMGOSH because he has NEVER EVER done that on a loose rein, it was amazing, so yesterday, I rode him again, and at first he was fast, but first thing he saw that we were ding transitions he slowed down, and every gate, even the canter, it was too amazing, and I even had him a very loose rein, it was so cool! we did that for about 30 minutes,and I warlike woooooooooooooooooow! because this whole time I figures out why he wanted to go fast all the time, and that is because I always wanted him to d, but never really played with our stop, so he was more ready to go, then he was ready to whoa, and it was that simple, one of those "OH DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH!!!!!!!!" moments, but he is doing great!

we also are going to pick up our horse trailer were buying tomorrow, it's a 2 horse straight load, which all we need, and it's red, and just needs t be painted, and her daughter does berral racing, and I hope maybe I can get them into parelli, the daughter likes parelli, but doesn't think she can barrel race and do parelli, which she can, (I wasn't there when she said that) and she wasn't there tonight, but should be there tomorrow, and there son was very nice to, he likes "breaking horses" ick, hate that word, lol but he doesn't know better, they are a very nice family!

and tomorrow my mom is calling the vet to figure out how much cog gins are, and were gonna get that done, soon and get a Health certificate, and well be set for lakeland, just need to buy our tickets, and when the time comes will be read to go, I really can not wait allot of my friends are going, and some people I haven't got to meet in person ad just know from the savvy club, and it'll be really nice to meet in person, hopefully I won't be RBI haha, like I was in Jacksonville last year, but if I am oh well hehe
