Happy Easter y’all!!!

I wish I’d had an Easter Gadget as a kid instead of an Easter Bunny. He’s too cute.

Happy Easter to all my followers!

1stthings3rd says: Hello, quick question: do you have any advice or information you can give me about yards and your instructors in America? I'm coming over from Britain next summer to teach riding at summer camps and if you have any pointers so I can mentally prepare myself I'll really appreciate it! Cheers in advance x
I think it completely depends on what part of the country you’re teaching in, and at what type of barn. I can only speak for Texas, but there’s a pretty big divide in the small, privately owned barns and the huge boarding facilities in attitude and atmosphere. Do you know what kind of barn you’re going to be teaching at?

As for the people, no matter where you are, I’d say just be as confident as you can. Americans tend to be loud and pushy, but don’t let it intimidate you. 

Sorry for the cruddy answer, but I haven’t got much experience with barns outside of my state!

my story,buxton hunt farm,west,

I had the barn to myself again on Monday, so I spent most of the day playing around with the pone. 

Honestly, he surprised me by being so willing to move in the small arena. I’ve never lunged him without a line, but he was quite happy to keep going as long as I kept encouraging him. We started off without any obstacles, and he was doing so well that I put out some ground poles to see what he’d do. By the end of our little play session, I’d put down some tiny crossrails and he started off by running through them- I got out the lunge whip and bam. Total rockstar.

I am so happy with how much progress we’ve made since October. I still don’t believe he’s mine sometimes.

I’m 96 followers from 2,000, when I get to there I’m going to hold another browband give away

Tbh I’m probably too excited about this because I was just trying to figure out how to make one. I feel like you can read my mind.

Bob riding West. Sorry for the poor quality, but I’m very proud of that tracking.

Through all the rough times and hard lessons, no one has taught me more than Bob. It’s been less than a year, and he and Jess have changed my life.

I know I took him for granted, and I’m sad that he’s gone- that I won’t be able to joke around with him or have him come out just to chat while I hang out with West. Sad doesn’t do the feeling justice, though. I think the real low point today was realizing I won’t go to my first show with him, he won’t see how much west changes from month to month the more we work, and there won’t be any more of his ‘quit questioning yourself’ pep-talks.

He believed in me when I didn’t, and pushed me when I thought I couldn’t keep going, and I’ll miss him dearly.

TCH has big shoes to fill, but she’s already stepped up and proved that Buxton is in great hands. I believe in you, Jess, and of your students do too. We’re behind you 150%!

Handsome pone in his new bridle.
Thank you, tax refund! :)
