Did you ever move your horse to Oasis? The newest horse that happened to be a pretty dapple gray, well, I met his 'mom' last night and it was not you! I wasn't sure.
And yes, if I can make it, it would be a lot easier to car pool. I'll have a better idea after this weekend.
Love the Grass Ridge pic! One of my goals for the year is to go there and ride my horse over some of the cross country jumps. If you knew what a chicken I was outside of a ring, you'd know that's a HUGE statement to make!
There is nothing so grand as to fly on the back of a horse!
Ponygrl-I also know Moosey well!! I knew him when he was going Prelim with ?Linda? I think that was her name but that was about 10 years ago. She used to take lessons at the same barn I was at. He's sooo cool! Lucky girl http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif
Yep, a good solid downpour for most of the day - just the sort of weather my giant mutant mud Sheltie loves http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif Luckily, our arena appears to be draining pretty well so we should be able to ride tomorrow if it is fine.
REefy!: I am so sorry I didn't email you, I met a woman one day at my work who had a smaller operation slightly closer to my house. Figgy is NOWHERE near ready to be jumping yet, he needs to gain like 200lbs nevermind muscle, so location, location right now! The trails at this place are better, and for the time being he just needs lots of groceries and basic under saddle stuff. I was gonna try to take him to the schooling show there last weekend but he isnt ready to be seen in public yet http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif
xcjumper : yup! Linda sold him in 95? I think to a girl named Morgan in Tucson who I bought him from spring of 96. I took him through training and retired him in 2000 when he was 22. Then he was a lesson horse for a few years and now hes on super duper awesomehorse retirement. EVERYONE knows that silly old horse. In all honesty every kid needs a Moose, heck, every amateur who wants to learn the ropes and have a darn good time needs one. If I didn't see a spot, Moose did. If I got off balance, Moose stepped under me. He didn't particularly care for dressage but we never did have time penalties http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> When I knew Moose, he was owned by Linda Daggett. We spent many days galloping through the desert, jumping anything that wouldn't run away from us...
Thats what I used to do with Moose! We didn't have an arena at our house and he lived in the backyard so I rode in the washes. Up banks, down drops, over ditches, over random fences blocking the trails from residential areas *whistles*....... Only thing that horse ever spooked at was _herds_ of bicycles. Imiss him so much but its a well deserved retirement, and she still uses him for dudes on trail rides.
In fact, last time when I went out to the ranch in NM (to pick up my TB) Moose saw me when he was drinking from the pond, came over and SLIMED my face with pond water (boyfriend found this tres amusing). silly old goat.
actually Ijust checked my school schedule and I don't get done Weds until 7pm...its a class I've taken before so I can just grab the syllabus and run...but that still has me leaving Tucson at 6:30 or later....
