Show Day With A Trail Horse

Cash and I attended our first [and only] show this summer. When I first bought Cash, I thought I would enjoy going to open shows a lot more than I actually did. I went to a total of three speed shows shortly after bringing Cash home. I realized over the winter that I enjoyed myContinue reading “Show Day With A Trail Horse”

Happy Holiday Weekend: 7/4/2020

Happy 4th of July! Although I relaxed at home with my husband today, I did my celebrating yesterday. I kicked off the holiday weekend with a great trail ride, followed by some swimming, boogie boarding, and fireworks.  One of my good friends flew home from AZ this weekend to spend time with family and friends.Continue reading “Happy Holiday Weekend: 7/4/2020”

Plastic Bags and Whips, Oh My!

Hi there! Is your horse afraid of plastic bags? I’ve never come across a plastic bag with Cash to be honest, but usually he isn’t overly sensitive to things.

In fact, I usually only pulled mine out of the tack box for one week a year. I showed at the local county fairContinue reading “Helmets: A Hot Topic”

Requiring Respect, Earning Trust

Hey there! If you’ve been keeping up with Cash and I, you probably know he hasn’t quite been himself lately. He’s been spooky on the trails, a mixture of buddy and barn sour, and pretty disrespectful. I’ve been slowly working through each issue with him, but have been feeling especially frustrated with his lack ofContinue reading “Requiring Respect, Earning Trust”

Bath Day at the Barn

When I bought Cash in August 2019, he had a whole boatload of skin issues! I would spot bathe certain areas with medicated shampoo, and Cash would dance around impatiently. He wasn’t horrible during bathing, but he couldn’t hold still and constantly stepped on the hose. I made excuses and ultimately never gave him aContinue reading “Bath Day at the Barn”
