Sell Some Things.
Nope. I'm a hoarder apparently. In truth, wasn't expecting September's weather to be quite so fantastic, or my dislike of online selling to be quite so off putting. Sorting through boxes of tack is something I'm saving for a day when the weather is too terrible to ride. Maybe October is the month I will check this one off?
Flatwork with Bridget.
|Bridget went to cowboy bootcamp|
|And had some fun too|
Back to work for Ginger.
Meh. Been getting her out more like 2-3 times a week the last two weeks. She was dealing with nasty sweet itch on her belly/girth area the first part of September.
Tame the wild pony.
It ain't pretty, since she opted to 'help' by rubbing half of it out, but it got done!
|Not my best work.|
Fun with friends.
Done, and to excess. Need to cut back on the socializing and work a bit on ring work.
-West Coast trails! Back to running/hiking/biking 5 days a week for a 45 min minimum. The ponies deserve a healthy rider, and I want to look good in my riding clothes (and blog pictures ha ha) again, so losing another 10-15 is the goal by the end of 2014. As with riding, remember to be proud of where I am as compared to where I was and don't get negative about where I'm not (yet!). Be realistic about where I want to be and be ready to work for it. Look at the budget and consider a professional's help.
Big fail here. Dieting still on track, but feeling pretty down on myself for not keeping up with any cardio beyond hiking and pony riding. Again something I apparently have issues accomplishing when the weather is so nice and I live at the barn in my free time.
-Sell Some Things
-Build/paint some jumps for use at our little community riding ring. I got the ok to do whatever I'd like, and since there are currently no jumps or even poles there, this is my (mostly self serving) project. The jumps will remain 'mine' but anyone using the ring will be welcome to use them.
-Bridget - more flatwork, as per goals outlined in last week's Progress:Bridget Edition post.
-Ginger - continue getting her out and about!
-Volunteer - These riding club memberships seem to come with a lot of volunteer hours! (Of course, I don't have to, but since I'm not working much, it seems selfish not to donate some time)
-Lessons - have my first one here on Sunday, fingers crossed it will work out to be a weekly thing.
|This picture of Bridget from yesterday has no purpose in the context of this post beyond me liking it.|
The longer term plan is to get Bridget going reasonably well on the flat and over fences and be 110% ready with both horses for the show season next spring!
