thoughtsonracinglifeandmore asked: Why 64? Do you like Nintendo 64? :D

I do like Nintendo 64s but that’s not why I choose the number 64.
I choose to represent one of my favorite military weapons, an AH-64 Apache. It’s our Army’s primary attack helicopter and is known as one of the most lethal helicopters in aviation history.
Guessing you weren’t expecting that? lol

Ask me Questions

I have questions open now, please feel free to ask me anything and I’ll try to answer them as best as I can!

Meet Straightnup Fly Right, my next project, I hope. She’s a 10y OTTB(Off Track Thorougbred) who raced until 08’ and then got into eventing. The guy who owns her wants me to do eventing on her but I’m not real sure I want to. I’d much prefer to just do equitation classes and maybe some jumper classes with her, shooting for March to start those. She’s a very athletic horse and she has a lot of energy, which makes for a fun ride! But once I start asking for collection and do some bending she becomes real quit and is just a pretty mover. I’m very excited for our journey together!

Finally got my saddle pad made, with some help from my mama. Put an Air Force patch on one side for my family and I and a USMC patch on the other for my boyfriend. Speaking of which I can’t wait for his crazy ass to finally get home. Only 3 more months but they seem like a life time. Glad we have skype, facebook and texting to stay in touch or I don’t know what I’d do!

30 Day Equestrian Challenge

Day 3- A video of your best riding

This is far from my best but it’s the only video I really have of me riding. This was the first English lesson I had had in almost 7 years!

30 Day Equestrian Challenge -Day 2

"The last time you rode a horse and what you did?"

-I rode today. Rode my horse Athena and our 17.1hh Dutch Warmblood and ex-hunter/jumper champion, Alex.

Put a picture up of me riding both, older pics though. Athena is the palomino and Alex is the chestnut.

Athena:

  • Walk,trot,canter
  • Trot and canter circles
  • Worked on relaxing at the trot and canter
  • Went over some ground poles
  • Went over a cross rail two times each way

Alex:

  • Walk, trot, canter
  • Worked on picking up and sticking with right lead
My other mare, Shitley’s Brittney,who still lives in Alabama with my grandparents. 
8y Thoroughbred mare by Sea of Secrets and out of Brittany’s Princess.
My Paw Paw purchased her in Texas as a yearling. Races her as 2y till she was 6, she made close to $60,000. He signed her over to me at the beginning of the year. I bred her to a Storm Cat stud in early May. Planning on racing her foal and re-training her as a trail horse or a pleasure horse or maybe even a jumping or dressage horse if she likes it.

30 Day Equine Challenge- Day 1

Hopefully I’ll remember to do this! lol

"When and why you started riding?"
-I started riding before I could walk, most of my family did but I’m one of the few thats stuck with it. I grew up riding Western and spent a lot of days at the racetrack. I decided to start taking English lesson in middle school to further my span of riding. At that time riding was the only thing that keep be enjoying life, I didn’t have the best child hood from the age 5 to 10th grade. If it wasn’t for riding I’d probably be pregnant and on drugs, no lie. Horses are my get away from everything, they always have and always will be!-

I get it good game just shut up already!
