Designing jumps with eachuisge because her boyfriend is awesome.
drawing straight lines is my least favorite thing in the entire world.
(I’m waiting for photos to make a real post but)
today was a much bigger success than I anticipated and I am so lucky to have the pony moms I have.. there would literally no barn without them after the.. upheaval..? of everything.
to say it’s been stressful would be an understatement and before the transition it was even more so… I mean it when I say we wouldn’t still be a barn without them…
and the biggest thanks of all to meritgallagher - she’s been my biggest cheerleader from the start, for me and the farm.. and getting the other moms involved! I’m too tired to really come up with words but the amount of work she’s done behind the scenes is tremendous and something I *never* could have accomplished.
It’s only 10 but I’m already half asleep so I’ll post more tomorrow.
aren’t you that sparkle horse person?

We had a MASSIVE open house / easter egg hunt today at the barn….
It was a huge success, we did the egg hunt. face painting (thanks kristin-taylorr!) and of course, the paint a pony with everyone’s favorite blind horse, Jasper.
Anonymous asked: I know this sounds kinda weird but do you have an accent of any sort?
The weirdest sort… Bleh. I hate my accent.
My favorite kid ever
this photo makes me happy
Yeah so this happened today…. Still not totally sure what went wrong but he was totally unharmed, he just wanted be a bulldozer I guess.
We had already jumped this fence once - it was perfect but of course no one caught that on film :(
Flash and S during today’s lesson (her third lesson ever and first lesson truly independent!!)
I’m pretty in love with Flash who has to keep his stupid name because kids already know it as flash.
ponies-in-the-house-personal asked: just a really stupid thing I noticed - the irons are backwards in the photo of your new horse, I know a few students at my farm like them that way but I think they are harder to ride in
Hahaha yeah I noticed that… She was up posing for some history project so I don’t think she even noticed… Way more interested in the jousting noodle LOL!
I don’t blame her noodle jousting is amazing!!!
Just out of curiosity why would the students want to ride in them backwards? The point of safety stirrups is the rubber bands on the outside so their foot gets released if they fall. I feel like using them flipped defeats the purpose and shouldn’t make a difference in how you ride.
Just curious my lesson barn days were pretty adamant about the safety stirrups being used correctly like that
Honestly.. I don’t get how they make riding harder (or why it would be considered beneficial?)
if you don’t think mules are the absolute coolest, heres 20 mules pulling a wagon train and hopping over their chains without guidance to properly pull the wagons. I hope that changed your mind.
Yes!! Such easy going smarties. If you don’t love mules, don’t talk to me. Ever.
I need one. Or 15.
God they are cool
Or just reblog with a link or photo? Thanks!!
I totally projected my own insecurities into that answer and deleted it. To anon:
