100.

As in, 100 followers! Fuck yeah! (Dear new followers, This is a swear-friendly blog. You have been warned.) This obviously calls for some celebration, and to me celebration equals buying things. So I'll have a little random drawing giveaway this weekend, but first you guys have to tell me what you want. An OTTB Tee? A Dapplebay tee? A big ass bag of horse treats? An e-high five? Throw me some ideas and I'll see what I can do.

In other news, Sarah and I had a flat school in the freshly dragged, jump free indoor. Bobby was pretty much a boss, although he had a personal LOL when I tried to show Sarah his flying changes. It was more like a flying cross canter fall on your face change. Good old Robert. Never one for class. We did some really solid counter canter work, ten meter canter circles, leg yields, and canter lengthenings.

Aaaand that was about it. At least it was drama free which has not been the trend so far this year--and we're only a week in! Sarah and I set up a grid jumping date for next Monday and I probably won't be jumping him until then. In fact, I probably won't even be riding again until Friday.

To conclude the most boring post yet, I brought my helmet home and installed the camera mount. So fucking pumped to go out on xcountry with it. Here's a helmet cam video of the Training at Bucks (starts at 8:57) so you don't leave feeling entirely jilted of action.

  1. Congratulations!! The dappledbay tees are nice. The OTTB ones look a bit easier on the wallet.

  4. I'm stoked to be the 100th follower! (Considering it was 99 when I began following this morning I'm pretty sure) so far I'm enjoying reading your posts!

  5. I like the dapplegray tees, they are a little nicer for anybody that doesn't have a TB.

  10. 1) I vote Dapplebay.

    2) Thanks for showing me another site where I can spend money on awesome horse stuff. I was running low on those.

    3) By thanks I mean you suck and by running low I mean I have an over abundance.
