Rode Missy on this warm winter day. It was nice to ride where I didn't have to wear a million layers!

Complete Barrel Pattern

Today I rode Missy around the barrel whole pattern (now that I've gotten all three of my Christmas barrels). She may make a good barrel horse, though we probably wouldn't get any winning times. lol. I was just asking her to walk since it was the first time, but she wanted to run them. I held her back but she did a trot for a little while. She was very forward and perky, really happy to be out. Doing a fast walk she seemed to really be enjoying herself. Missy didn't chomp on the bit very much and her head was not stretched out. Her neck was just a little higher than a western pleasure horses'. This amazed me because I haven't ridden her in a while. She was very responsive to my cues too! Even my neck reining cues that I'm teaching her. It's a little slippy out now but I hope to eventually get her to lope them. After I was done I let her graze. She diggs in the snow with her hooves then eats. Her whiskers got frozen from burrying them in the snow. There was some grass for her to eat when she got to it though.

Missy's been wearing the blanket the past few days and it's staying on fine. I gave her one of the molasses cookies I made and she loved it!

A Year of Missy American

A year ago I was 13yro and 7months, and got Missy. Today I've had this great girl for a year. She's really improved. When I first got her she had only been ridden twice for short periods of time. Before that she had aborted a foal. Missy now turns off of leg cues and responds really well to the bit. She has jumped up to about 1' 6", has done the trails, and is now starting on barrels.

For Christmas I am getting barrels. So far I've gotten one. I started Missy on it and she did really well. I just walked her though.
