Think I'm about to collapse now! That has to be one of the craziest months of my life! It actually started back at the end of August with me having private tuition from Sue. When I called to arrange lessons, I said basically i need someone to kick my arse and make me improve, to which laughter came back and “well you’ve come to the right place then”.
So you may be wondering what the heck sword fighting and bashing a quintain has to do with horsemanship - apart from being really good fun that is!
Ugh! Never mind coming home with gauntlets, I can see me bringing a chest plate too if I keep collapsing in my ribs.
Will stop myself somehow even if i need to take extreme measures. Interestingly, each time I collapsed my core, i overused my hand and Zolik became heavy.
Oh! today was a blast!! More work on lateral manoeuvres, bit of Spanish walk thrown into the mix, before sword fighting with Frantisek.
So this was a little unplanned, had gone to the branding with Api to watch.
Adam- hey Lisa come ride my horse, where's your boots?
Lisa - boots in the suitcase Adam, I only came to watch.
Adam, Come ride my horse Lisa.
Lisa - No boots Adam,
Adam, Lisa - just ride my horse,
Lisa - Oh Ok Adam
Uh oh! Looks like its getting even more competitive here at Wings Farm this year, well - at least we’ll be safe!
Our new powwow circle and fire pit, all ready for the summer clinics
An equine catalogue came in the post today for the people who used to live here, OMG all the things I didn’t know I needed! My numnahs have to match my fly hoods which also have to match my bandages :/
I have an array of sticky saddle pads, non sticky saddle pads or ones with bamboo soft lining. There are boots for every joint on every leg, there are lambskin ear plugs for my horse along with a lambskin noseband protector pad - yeah really! I can even buy a funky bionic wrench for the studs in the shoes i don’t have and then I can spray glitter on my horse’s hooves.
