May not have a Man in My life But I have her ….

I have never posted pics of my girl on here before but thought now was the time.

I bought Sonnet earlier this year from a truly lovely lady who adored Sonnet but decided she was not a match for her and it was time to find a new horse. In came me 🙂 I met Sonnet in January and it was truly love at first site, she was fluffy and over weight but she had this draw to her that I knew instantly made her the horse for me.

Since then I have been working endlessly with her to bring her up to scratch and to the full potential of her abilities !

She is a Georgian Grande which is exactly have Percheron ( BIg draft horses ) and half American Saddlebred ( dainty 5 gaited horses) She has taken on the big drafty parts through and through with the smoothness of a saddlebred. She has dinner plate sized feet and a gigantic head ! lol She is a food motivated animal…this horse will frisk you down and mug you for treats lol

I bought her with the intent of doing 3 day eventing ( cross country jumping, Stadium Jumping and Dressage ) But we have had to go back to square one in training and re educate her. Currently I am working on dressage and she has a natural ability like none other.

She is currently one of the few constants in my life. She is the one I go to at the end of a bad day. She is the one I mutter to about my life on a daily basis. She is the one that I can rant to about my past and current men troubles and I can do all this knowing I will get a sympathetic ear and a kind heart

This is my girl Sonnet


Back in the " Old Country" and into the " Old Way of Life"

So I am a very happy lady right now. I have started to ride again ( horses that is ) and I am soooo happy.
My ass is slightly sore but besides that all is ok. I will admit to being very nervous when I got on to Coco ( I did not name this horse she came with it and I actually feel so sorry for her lol ) but once I gained my feeling back nerves went away and it just felt wicked. So I took some pictures.

Now you can’t see it but at this point there is s slight look of terror in my eyes

Not so terror ridden now and amazingly very comfortable !

looking HOT !! lol lol Thunder is the moose int he background. Will be ridding him on Sunday. Please note the height difference between him and little Miss Coco ….. and then pray for my life ha !
