How to brake in a new bridel

So the best way to brake in a new bridel is not anything like you mayhaps have read.

You do not need to oils it, or works it around in your hands, or do anything special.

You put it on and go riding.

Ideally you go on a big swety trail ride and that does the trick.

But if your bridel arrives in November and it is cold and there is no swetting really. You can just put it on and wear it around.

Like here for example. I takes it on the trail and finds a bunch of deer insides.

Interesting, mildly.

I suspose you could also go out and get it rained on. But whatever.

Trael secrets

So I has lerned a secret of being on the trael.

I has lerned that if the trail is good and clear, Mommish will make me do trotting. or sometimes cannering.

I hate this.

So given a choice. I crashes thru the woods insted.

Like here is a example.

There is a perfectly good trael like 20 feets to my left. But I do not want! ha ha ha

Let us roller skate over sticks in sted.

doing super hard training part 3

So after all this training. Mom puts all my Roxie stuff in the trailer and we goes off to show. This show is a long ways away, in some trees. We has been to this place before and I loves it.

i goes to my stall and gets all settled. Mom comes after a little bit an we gets our dressahj tacks on and I go do a test. We are the last ride of the day basicly.

Heer is me greeting a adoring fan

They do scores but Mom is all "SUPERSTISH I WILL NOT LOOK" so i do not know wat is the score but MOm is happy with my performance.

I gets leg rapped and covered in a sheet and gets to go to sleep.

day 2: We goes and does cross country!

I is a galloping fool and i jumps all the things. There is a time where we has to go thru water ans there is a HOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE on the other side of the water in a hooman corral made of flaggy string and they is VERY SCAREY! I runs sideways when we has to go by them! They may not touch my Roxie Greatness!

But I jomps all the thinsg and i is amazing. Mom says so.

There is a big gulley on this course that you go down into and up outta, two times, and Mom says i should not canter down this because it is steep. So we trots up out of it the steep way the first time, and then trots back down the steep side on the way back. So we has some time faults but this is OK because I is safe and sound.

Day 3: we does stadium jomping! This is not in a stadium tho. Just an areena.

I is perfect but i is kinda tired despite all the super hard training. Mom has a hard time making me be forward.

But that is ok, i has no stops and no refoosals and I is great. Duh like always.

Oh this is important. Mom says if i jumps good that I never has to go for a big fast gallop EVER AGAIN. And i is like . . . "YES I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE"

So that is why i tries so hard.

But anyways so i is amazing!

And then we gets a super big ribbon and we gets to be in a victory gallop!

I sees this. Gimme it.
Thas right.

Mom is SO HAPPIE and she says i never have to gallop ever again!!

And i gets a hole bag o carrots and some graims and a bunch of cookies. Well i guess i got those all weekend.

And then i gets to go home! Hooray Roxie!

Doing super hard training part 2

So as promised. I will continue to discuss super hard training.

Here is the steps.

0) I goes on a diet. I hate this.

This country has un attainable standurds for beauty

1) a vet lady comes and stabs some junk into my Roxie neck and i hate this. But. It makes my legs crackle less. so that is good.

2) we gets a big ol set of front shoes on so i may do more training in places where there may be a rocks or such.

My farrier man is the best

3) We signs up for dressahzj lessons with a real good program. And we goes to them weekly. An we also works on dressahzj at home. I do lots of cannering with my sholder in, or my buttocksie in, or sometimes i switches them side to side. It is so hard! I want to give up an be heavy but Mom will nut allow. :( As time goes tho. This gets more easier.

It is my hope to som day be as fancy as this fancy Potato

4) we gets to go jomp cross contry! I love this. It is my favorite. And i is amazing, i jumps all the stuff even when it is weerd looking or painted bloo or maybe shaped like a mushroom. And i jomps ditches and down banks and up different banks and over skinnies and thru watters and between trees. I is a glorious cross contry thunder horse.

5) We does galluping. This is the hardest part. We goes to a trail that has long flat stretches and we starts out by trotting. we trots for a while. Each time we goes and does trotting, is lasts a little bit longer. We gets up to where i can trot for like TWELVE MINITS. That is forever, by the way. So i does that until i is trotting for over a mile at a time. Then mom changes it up a little and we starts doing some short cannering. Cannering is SO HARD YOU GUYS it is like lifting weights as fast as you can. So some days we canner politely for a few minits at a time. Other days we goes and does some warm up trotting and cannering and then mom makes me RUN AS FAST AS I CAN HO CRAP LETS GO SO HARD I GONNA DIE. These bursts are not as long but they feel like forever because I cannut breathe fast enough. But then i gets to walk and everything is cool til we does it again.


6) evenshually when i is reel fit. we goes and starts trotting the hill across the road from my horse house. it is long and gradual but this is hard work! It makes my bottom real strong tho.

So anyways this is my Roxie fitniss regimen. Stay tuned for the show report!

This is like months ago.

So that is where i has been.

No time for bloggo becuz of if there is time, i is spending it trodding or jomping or even doing super fast gallups.

But anyways so this enrty is a Part 1 so now you may imagine me becomming so svelte Roxie as the summer moves on. 

But you may look forward to part 2!

Another show

So more recent but also a few weeks ago. Marm is like "you is so greatness, let us go do another show adventure" and I is all "yup hokay" yet again.

So i gets in the trailer and goes for some hours. I comes out in this nice deserty place with lots of areenas and COWS and i is all "YUSS" but apparently these cows is for chasing and rope-ing, not for Roxie-ing. Sad.

But we does a dressahzj again. 

We does this for too days in a row.

On day One. Mom wears a purple coat, and spurs, and i is so good, and we wins.

On day Too. Mom wears a lite bloo coat, and spurs, and picks up a wip so that she may tap me into the corners. Boo. :(

But i goes in the corners.


Oh also, there is JOMPING in this dressahcj test!

Thees is barely worth the effort tho

And i wins again! Becuz i goes in corners and does bending, I wins by a LOT.

I does so good and mommo is a proud. 💜

So I is doing a pretty good year at shows, I guess.

Doing a show

So a few weeks ago.  Marm is all. "Hay Roxie. Let us get in the trailer for four hours." And I being a good Roxie is all "hokay."

So we do.

We evenshually gets to a place with trees an hills wher I has been before. Normal hotel acomodation is a teeny stall but this time I gets a huge pen where cows has been, so that I may move my Roxie greatness around. This is better.

So i is there for days and days. Mom Marm puts up a tent and lives with me.

Day One is we go do dressahzj. I prance around and demunstrate my glory wile a lady is all "bark bark ride better." So that is fun.

Day Two is longer. We gets to do dressahzj but just a test and then a different lady talks to Marm about how she should ride better. That's all for the morning.

Then Day Two also. We goes and does cross country jomping. I is perfect and amazing because doy. Even tho this weather is the pits.

I is a tuff Roxie but come on man. 

Then Day 3 Marm explains will be the same format as Day 2 but will ackshully count for somthing. She gets on a fancy coat and puts on my fancy wite leg doobers and off we go.

We does a dressahzj and I is amazing.
Heer is a video link, I donut know if it will work.

There is visitors! They has carrots.

Then i rests some. Then i go do jomping.

This jomping is different. There is people everywhere and that is scarey. So mom wait marm has to do some kicking. But I goes SO FAST  and i jomps all the things, and I is such a good gurl!

And then I wins! Hooray Roxie!

Any ways. That is all on that show.

I goes and does more but that is an other entry.

Cusstom saddle

Mommish has desided that my Roxieness deserves a cusstom saddle.

A horn type saddul for trail walking.

So hay lady Leeuh from long ago comes. She has theese dealies that you put on horse backs and write down so some man som place can make the bones of the saddul. He takes a while. Than he sends this to Leeuh and she puts all the lethers and fancy stamps and dots and silvers on it, and that will be my saddle.

There is a wither one, and a middul one, and a loin one.

Anyway. My self will not fit into thees dealies! Ha ha ha I knows I is speshial.

So mommish gets her bendy ruler and we do mezzuring this way. 

I is Roxie and I is supervisin.

Artsy mezzure.

Normal mezzure.

I will have a saddul som time in the next years.

Yay for more horse tackle!

I hate theese flyers also

Ther is a invasion of flying honky things in the hay field near my horse house.

TOO near my horse house.

I hate these things. I cannut quite see what they is. So i stares in a intimmidating way and I snorts at them.


And then i bravely runs away as I must proteck my Roxie greatness.
