oh my saint of a hubby

well my husband has not even been gone 24 hours (went snowbaording) and i have already set up a appt. to go look at a $300 uncatchable 13 year old mare. But i know him... when he gets home tonight and i tell him whats up, he will be excited and want to come with me! Seriously, how many wives have 4 horses and their hubby says "sure!" to another one!!


speaking of 4 horses... i am off to ride a couple of them. :)

what a lovely week!

Well this was the kind of week that makes me LOVE being a horse trainer!

I had a HUGE breakthough with a horse that has been in training with me for 10 months. He was been making good progress BUT i REALLY think we are on the right track now! Yay. :)

I will have 2 new working students starting next week, and possibly 2 more the week after. I love teaching horse crazy girls.

My baby horse finaly got a couple rides this week, and he was fab! Once the trails dry out i hope to get him out every weekend. He is going to be SUCH an awesome trail horse.


and i want this cutie! http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/grd/1084569132.html

or her! http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/grd/1081656918.html my hubby would FLIP if i got her... He wants a big horse SO BADLY.

yay

I interviewed 3 potential working students today, and 1 about 2 weeks ago. Looks like I will have a couple helpers! Hopefully they will be as committed to it as I was. They are seem fairly experienced, one girl has actually been riding LONGER than i have, but doesn't have any training experience.

I also met a Lady today that has a couple horses she wanted me to ride, but can't afford to pay me. She offered to board one of my horses but i don't want him in a stall. She has a lovely stallion she wants me to ride, as well as a filly from him. I am actually REALLY sad i have to turn her down. :( I could see it being a great opportunity to network and expand my bussiness as she is very conected to the western comunity in this area. Too bad she can't pay me. :( I suppose i would be CRAZY to ride for free... but if i had time i would be TOTALY willing!

Lots to think about. :/


Last thing... Does anyone have any feedback on a supplement called "Navilam O"?

yikes...

well i have a lot of changes this month! went from 3 horses to 2 at one ranch, he moved out of town. Thought i would be starting 4 new horses today but now its down to 2. And at my ranch i am going from 3 to 2 on the 15th because one sold. I am VERY happy about that, but now i need to find a total of 4 new horses by April to keep up with what i had planned... EEK!

Sometime i wish i was at a larger ranch so i didn't have to turn away any horses... I board/train at my parent's ranch and we have a strict limit of 10 horses, with only 3 that are in f/t training. but i do have too admit its nice not having to deal with barn politics or anything. I just have to work hard and drive a lot to keep a good amount of horses.


So if you know of anyone in my area needing some training... :) www.HensleyRanch.com
