Pony Time

Last week I ponied Estella for the first time! Although she has been ponied by a Parelli Professional, I have never tried before. Last week when I was riding Satish I finally felt like they were both ready, so I gave it a go! Satish is an old pro,...

Spring Fever

Now that school is done I have time for all sorts of awesome things and I love it! Yesterday I rode for the first time since January! Satish was so fabulous considering the amount of time he had off. We both need to get back into shape, but I was definitely impressed....

Introducing Satish

Even though I am currently horseless, there is no shortage of horses to ride at my barn. The one I work with the most is Satish: Satish is a 7 year old arabian / tennessee walking horse cross. He is truly unique and quite the character. He is ornery...
