Hunter Under Saddle AQHA

Just so you know, I love the comments about how to show, but for those of you that don't know
AQHA HUS is VERY different from ENGLISH shows.
Here is a video of a HUS class for AQHA.

Heads are very low.  Not that I like it, but, that is how it is.  It kind of sucks really.  I only used this video because it showed the whole class.  Long, and LOW head.  Yep, I don't agree, but if you want to show and place.... you do the math.

Anyway, William Is NOT going english.  Reining, Trail, and Western Riding.  Yippee!
No more stretch pants and tight boots!!!
The GJA is coming home for a while and going to get out on the trails and get a trip around the trail obstacles in the arena.
Now, if it would just get to summer....

Yippee! Blogger is Fixed!

Thank goodness they finally fixed Blogger!  I haven't been able to log in for a week.  Anyway it's all good now.

I had a great time yesterday and part of today.  My good friend Vaquerogirl came and spent the night.  We had a shopping day at, where else, Tractor Supply.  Then we went for Mexican food.

It just can't get better than that.
This morning we shopped for horses on 
After we decided we were too broke for the horses we liked, we went down to the barn and rode Annie and William.  William came home from the trainers with a mystery lameness that went away pretty quick on its own.  Then the EHV-1 broke out so he ended up staying home.  I think he can go back in a week.
Anyway here he is loping some circles

I think he is going to be a good show pony!
So, all in all it was a good time except for the craptastic weather.
As I write this, its raining.... again....  At least I am not at a horse show.
Here is his first day trying trail obstacles.  He was pretty good!
So, even with the weather it was a fun couple of day thanks to my buddy Vaquerogirl!
I'm not sure what we have done to anger the weather gods, but we just may have to find a virgin to sacrafice!

Blogger Trouble?

I have had a heck of a time trying to get to my blog dashboard.  Something is amiss at the Blogger headquarters.
Finally I used Google Chrome and was access my account.  From what I read, LOTS of folks are locked out of their accounts and they can't even comment on other blogs.  I hope they get this figured out soon.
