Going to forge AQHA papers and show in HUS

River apparently wants to be a quarter horse showing in hunter under saddle.  You know how those people ride and how the horses go?  On a draped rein with the neck more or less level?  Yeah, that's what Riv likes.  Walk-trot only, of course.  I rode briefly last night--it was HOT, poor guy was sweaty just standing in his stall.  The Mare looks like she has a fungus on her back and hindquarters from the salt left by sweat..  Anyway.  We pretty much just trotted around on a loose rein and he was all quiet and relaxed with that level neck and head set.  We cantered briefly, which was fine.

Lesson tomorrow.. the weather had better break!  It was over 80 degrees at 8:30 this morning, yikes!  No riding tonight, it's trivia night.

Despicable Me 2 was SO GOOD.  It's absolutely hilarious and adorable and clever.  Love it.  If you haven't seen Despicable Me or the sequel, you must watch!  It kind of reminds me of Shrek.  Not in terms of storyline, but it's a very funny movie that kids enjoy and adults enjoy even more because they get more of the jokes.  I was driving home from the barn last night thinking about the movie and I literally laughed out loud.


  1. Same here with the weather :(
    I'm not a huge kid-movie person but your review makes the movies sound great. Maybe I will check it out.

  2. Well, most modern HUS QH's have a ton of Thoroughbred in them :) Now we know why!

    1. I was trotting around the ring on the buckle thinking to myself "wow, what a wild and crazy Thoroughbred ex-racehorse!" I am sort of tempted to show him Western walk-trot, lol.
