Horsey Love

I am feeling really lucky to have such awesome horses in my life. I have been leading Wild Card around and working on touching her all over on both sides. I hope to be loading her into a trailer by next week. I don't have great pictures, because I am usually the photographer which makes for an awkward shot!

Dixie and I have been trailering out on the weekends. Today we went to Sundance Ranch and rode in the arena. We practiced a lot and was really happy with her flying lead changes:)
After, we had a good trail ride in the vineyards. She did really well with bikers, dogs, and the other horses too. It is so much fun to watch a mustang from the 'wild' stage and then progress into an equine citizen. We are planning on trailering to Lynch Canyon tomorrow, wish us luck!

Updates in August

Ok, not the best picture but I was feeling like an update was in order! Wild Card is doing really well. It has been 2 weeks as of today and I am really happy with her. 
I have also been busy working Augusta so she is ready for her mom to take her out on the trails. 
Dixie has been less than pleased with me being around Wild Card and has made it her job to stand guard outside Wild Card's pen when I am working. Horses can be so funny! She may not speak the same language but she sure did get her point across. I made sure to work her out on the trails after working Wild Card and I did take her out to Anguin Park for a nice trail ride over the weekend so I am sure she still knows she is my favorite :)

Litchfield Corrals

Well it only took about 48 hours from the time we bought our truck to heading up to the corrals. I picked out a nice 4 year old Wall Canyon mare as a TIP horse on Tuesday. I am thrilled to report she is doing great. What an amazing mane!

Tevis Cup 2012

Anthony and I were invited to 'crew' at the Tevis cup this weekend. For those of you that have not heard of the toughest endurance ride in the United States, read all about it here

We had a great time, and although it is predominantly Arabians, there were a few mustangs in the mix.  It was great to see (for the first time) the BLM there to cheer on the mustangs and pass out any information on adoption to interested people.

It was our first experience with endurance riding and I was really impressed with the riders and horses that were in attendance. I think Dixie may have a career ahead of her ;)

On the way home, we stopped at a few dealers on our quest to find a truck. I am happy to say that we were successful! We are the proud new owners of a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500. I can't wait to use it!
