So I joined the riding club and took ACE out and entered him in exhibition pole bending. He was a natural, and did beautifully I think 
this week we are gonna try exhibition barrel racing. I'mso happy I finally joined, it is so much fun!

My grandpa got a new mare, a grey 6 yr. old mare named "Lucy," she is scared of people because where she lived before he got her, 
people were extremely cruel to her, kids threw rocks at her and she hadn't been touched in two years due to her owner was in the nursing 
home. She is slowly making progress after she sees we are not going to hurt her, she is actually supposed to be broken and gaited
already. Its just sad really, she really is a pretty little girl though, she needs her feet trimmed badly.

My grandpa's Arabian mare "Curious," is starting to look a little better though, she is starting to gain weight

I am getting two new horses myself, a registered black mare and her newborn filly from my friend, I am excited! <3
I can't wait to begin working and training the little filly myself, it will be an adventure. :)

Yesterday was half good, half bad.

Went to the zoo yesterday with my family and fiance, Tony, and we all had a good time.
 Tony loved the zoo and we took some awesome pictures! I also got to hang out alot with
 Tony Friday and Saturday, so that was definately good.


The bad was I went out to ride Ace my horse yesterday and invited my friends over to
 watch. It seemed like any normal day. I put his bridle on, saddled him up and rode him
about 20 ft, and turned him around and headed him back where my friends and Tony was
at a lope. After stopping him and talking to them a bit, I was ready to ride again...and he showed
his butt! He would not go for nothing, I coaxed him and coaxed him and he did not go. Tony put a
lead rope on him and tried to get him to walk while I was on his back, but he refused and my
frustration didn't help much either. Tony got on him and tried, and had no luck. Then my friend got 
on him, who is really experienced with horses and had no luck. The two mares out there wasn't 
helping the problem either, they was really beginning to piss me off.I have no idea what  the heck his 
problem was yesterday, he made me look like an idiot yesterday. I guess he wasn't in a good mood 
yesterday or something, horses have their days too I suppose. He's been doing really good though,
did he act the way he did because people he didn't know was out there watching? I have no idea.

I still love my Ace-er though! <3

So I actually did get to go see Ace yesterday, Tony my fiance had to take me...

We got there and he was soooo happy to see me, I called him and he
 came GALLOPING up to the fence! That made me feel really great.

Anyways, I saddled him up and started his barrel racing training, 
I think he did a good job for the very first time, and I did too! ^^

Then I fed him & he was a happy boy. =D

Wedding Plans can be a bitch...especially if you have no damn help from your husband-to-be
 and he is busy cracking jokes when he should be serious.Nothing is going my way right now,
 I feel like screaming my lungs out until I turn blue in the face.

Nuff' Said.

Yay, so I got a new bit today! A snaffle bit, and it was a big improvment to my riding! Ace felt so good, he trotted and loped about excitedly, lol! It was wonderful! My grandpa also got himself a saddle today, a bridle (with another god awful curb bit), and a saddle pad. Himself along with a group of hired hands began constructing our new horse pen pasture today, I think it is almost complete.

Prom is this coming up Friday...whoopee... X_X

Gotta start working on that research paper tomorrow...ughhhhhhhh.

I went to the fair grounds last night where the riding club was having their "Play Day,"  and had a blast! It was so much fun being around others who share a love of horses, it was great! I watched the pole bending and barrel racing events, they were spectacular! I got a few cool pole bending videos, maybe I can post them on youtube soon. I can't wait to become a member, maybe I can take my horse "Ace," out there next Friday. Excited!

Other than that, I played rock band with my fiance, it was actually pretty fun...I sang! <3

I may be going to sell my horse "Stormy," I have already posted him on several classified sites, maybe my grandpa will purchase him from me so I can still be around him, but the reason I'm selling is I'm a beginner and don't need no ole' spunky stallion to work with, I'd be scared to ride a newly broken horse...nu-uh not taking my chances! No way! I'm currently seeing if I can get at least $300 for him or trade for a good mare perhaps.

Blah...gotta get motivated to work on this damn research paper for English, I really hate it when it gets that time of year to do research...it really stresses me out. =(

Squee!! Me & Tony's camping trip at the ranch was awesome! We had so much fun, we grilled, took ALOT of wonderful pictures and I went trail riding on a beautiful buck skin mare! I am so saddle sore...ow, oww, owww!!! =(

My new horse was loaded in the horse trailer yesterday and brought here where I live, he hasn't been ridden in a few months, but he rode okay today I suppose, his only problem is he wants to be the boss and that's not happening!! ><

I made him pretty today though, I gave him a hair cut and plaited his mane (he didn't mind!)! I heard there is a riding club in the town I live in, I am thinking about joining, it is only $25 for a membership for a year.
