I had a great time this weekend!
First, the horse expo on Friday was fun. Last year I had high expectations and was disappointed with how little there was to do or shop for now that I have more specialized tack and the expo is at least 80% western focused. This year I had lower expectations and therefore more fun. I also ran into a friend (my landlord from back when I first got Katai), ate some kettle corn, and bought some great stuff at the tack swap.
|Other than the kettle corn this is the extent of my shopping this year|
$16 for the whole pile of books :)
A few years ago at this swap I found my "holly grail".
|Complete with dust cover, I have SOOO many amazing memories |
of reading through this book as a kid and dreaming of having my own horse some day
|Plus it's got a couple really old photos of George Morris!! Pretty cool :)|
This time I found the other book I'd been looking for. This was my other favorite when I was growing up. It's back in print but I really wanted the old hard cover version and even better, this was once a library book which makes it even sweeter!
|I loved all of the Billy and Blaze books but this is my favorite.|
Otherwise I've been doing a great job with riding at least 4 times a week and have been to the barn 5-6 times a week :)
This video is of Katai lunging and our trailer loading improvement from a couple of weeks ago. This is just a small clip and she was in an out a bunch more times that day. We've practiced once since that day and I'm hoping to put in some more practice this next week as well.
