I seriously have absolutely nothing to post so hopefully you guys aren’t minding all these old photos 😂 .
I’m just now getting to the barn, Chac is a total mess (surprise surprise) so I’m gonna give him a nice long grooming and then clean his stall. I won’t be able to go out there tomorrow since we’ll be at Sundown (where we’re going skiing) all day (can’t wait @ima.gallant.knight!!)
I found the video of our winning ranch riding pattern at state — should I post an edit of it tomorrow if I have time to make one? .
QOTD: What’s your favorite thing to do at home when it’s too cold or rainy to do anything outside and you don’t have work or schoolwork or anything to do? .
We said a temporary goodbye to Miss Sunny today! She is off to stay with her new baby daddy for a 2020 foal. Swipe to see pictures of him! #gelding#horse#overo#tobiano#ottb#thoroughbred#jockeyclub#foal#broodmare#adoptalivinglegend#blmmustang#horse#sorrel#horsesofinstagram#barrelracing#cowhorse#ranch#horsemanship#horsetraining#liberty#naturalhorsemanship#coltstarting#aqha#apha#pony#mare
Good couple of lessons over the past 2 days 😀 flatwork yesterday and although our canter is still a work in progress walk and trot was showing some promise 😍. Also his guts must be better as although he still spooks a lot he calms straight away.
Really pleased with today’s lesson, can’t say I was the most relaxed but Maddy pushed our comfort zone today and we rose to the challenge 😍😍😍 it felt good but must admit I was quite relieved to finish. It was a nice confidence boost to realise that even when things went wrong we were still ok. Love my big ginger loon 😍🐎. Then a fab evening watching Ben Hobday show how it’s done 😀😀😀#comfortgut #horsesofinstagram#brave#wobbleberrychallenge#fedontopspec@ridgemadeleine@lionsclubs@leroyandbongo@benhobday@hartpury

Handsome man Chewy is getting quite hairy in this winter that seems to be never ending. Yet another winter weather warning for most of the area! •
Chewy gets a blanket in the cold winter months because in his aging years (he’ll be 17), he has become a hard keeper and needs a little help to keep his weight in the cold! •
Do you blanket any of your horses?
If you’ve been to Salisa in the last week you may have noticed this sign up in the stables.
We’re fundraising for a new vaulting roller 🐴 and one of our awesome parents has donated:
Beautiful raw honey 🍯
Beeswax lip balms 🐝
Salisa branded chocolate bars 🍫
Please let Sabine or Lisa know if you’d like to purchase anything next time you’re at the yard 😊
✨ Lately, more than ever, I’ve been experiencing other lives, from other realms trying to get my attention or in a sense, attempt to communicate with me. Perhaps, it’s my grandma, who was one of my biggest fans, who’s birthday was on the day of this picture (Monday) or maybe the spirits we always leave offerings to, or maybe even my spirit guides whom I call on daily. Regardless, what I’m constantly reminded is to never stop ignoring the signs, always continue believing and always continue dreaming! Being out here on my horse, with my dogs, my friends, and amongst the most sacred, beautiful land is life changing. Being right here, teaches me everything I need to know about life. ✨ #californiadreamin ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dutch had a nice ride today! We started out with her in my exercising saddle, but after deciding flat work was much more important for the day than a gallop, I switched her back to her eventing saddle and we went to work on her canter, afterwards going up some hills (and getting stuck in some mud 🙄).
