Cute Smile-w500-h500

For me and my 2 horses, 2016 is a fresh start for new goals.  I do eventing at 3D horsemanship in Waxhaw.  I am currently showing my amazing quarter horse, Justa Gun Swinger, aka Gunner, at Training 1 and 2 in dressage and jump 2’3 at shows, but at home school 2’9 or 3ft.

In December, we went to our first USDF rated show in Aiken, SC, and scored a 77.5 and 70.9!  I had so much fun with Gunner and other kids from the barn!

In January, Gunner and I went to Gibbes Farm in South Carolina to go XC schooling. Gunner jumped everything in sight and it was one of the best days of my life! We cantered downhill over giant logs and into the water complex!  The tiger trap jumps were awesome! We went with other friends from the barn and after riding all morning, we set up a picnic lunch on one of the giant jumps and ate sandwiches, chips and Vanilla Coke – yum!

Theo, my fun play pony, is possibly the most amazing pony on earth!  He is a little flea-bitten welsh pony who normally is ‘brown’, not flea-bitten!  He loves treats and hugs, but especially loves food!  Our favorite thing to do is to gallop around the pastures bareback. Theo is about 20 years old, but still acts young!  We have 2 mini donkeys, Riley and Donkey, and sometimes I throw on Theo’s western saddle and herd them!

I’m so excited to spend more  time at the barn with my friends and horses this year!  Feel free to follow me on Instagram and Twitter at Grand Times Eventing!
