It made me look even more forward to starting training. Going to these types of events always makes me love and appreciate my own discipline a lot more. I'm surrounded by a lot of english riders (outside of the blogging world, I'm not talking about y'all, haha!) and it's easy to kind of feel out of the loop with stuff and wanting to fit in a bit more but at the end of the day, if I ever compete or if I just hang around my own farm, this is what I want to do and what I love.
|The quickest and best dismount, by far.|
I've already started goat tying from the ground - my little goat is pretty wild so she's been taming down a whole lot more as she's being worked with and I'm getting a bit more experience. I'm getting my game on with everything - the meeting is today and that means my horses could literally be home from anytime in between the weekend or early October (If they don't say to wait 17 days they are coming home as soon as possible.) and I want to be prepared for that. This is what I love and I'm ready to work on it despite what anyone else says that kind of waters down my fire. I'm not a good writer on topics like this and I think it's because I'm so stinking excited about everything that my mind is scattered and I can't think, but for the first time I feel like I'm ready to just nail this down and start training and working with my horse for once like we're a team heading towards something and it's really nice knowing there's something to go towards other than just another ride in the pasture and etc. Plus, Red's getting to be able to do what he was bred for and what he loves and that's working with goats and roping and etc. It's time for me to step up to the plate a little bit. We've accomplished so much in the past two years and proved a lot of people wrong and gotten a lot of good people on our side, now I'm ready to further that even more. This is a pretty good confidence booster, as well.
I'm beyond excited for the end of this year and 2015 and all of the years after that.
