What have I been up to this week?

So you remember here while back I showed you this picture and said, just remember, I was the first one on her?

Well this week we’ve been busy working on getting Snookums broke to ride.  One of those things, once you start, you kind of need to reinforce every day!

Dad called last week and told us no matter what we needed to come to his house some point this week, he had something to show us.  Look what he’d been working on!  Now after his debacle earlier this summer, my mom wouldn’t allow him to get on her so he called us in for help!  She is our baby after all.

Now I couldn’t be showing hubby up so I allowed him to be the second person on her ;).

Now poor Snookums isn’t real sure about us getting on her after those first couple times.  It’s quite the experience to say the least.

Once hubby felt comfortable in the arena, then it was time to go out toward the road and find new buggers.

And of course after a long hot workout, it was time for a nice rinse off.  She’s not real sure she likes this yet, but usually after a hot day the horses LOVE it.  I guess she’s like a little kid who doesn’t like to shower yet… lol :).  She is our baby after all!

These videos are from different days.  This is what we’ve been doing all week except for last night which hubby and I had prior plans made.  So Happy Friday and here’s to the weekend!  Only 4 more hours and my weekend starts!!  Now off to go discuss a paper I wrote with the professor.

  1. She looks like she is coming along good! That's great that your dad started ground driving her, makes it easier to steer and stop once you're on them. My mom ground drives all of her horses before she starts riding and it's worked super well for her so far!

  2. That's good that your dad has time to spent with her too! I have never trained a horse, but I feel like I am failing at training a child so you know pretty much the same thing! haha
