It's been a long time

I haven't had time to even think about blogging in like two weeks. The month of June is almost over and I dare say that most of it is a total blur. It seems this year has gone by very quickly. Work is darn near killing me. I will say the stress has helped with my weight loss and I am now only 9 pounds from my WW goal, but it has also started to make me feel old. I am just waiting for a week that is calm and productive.

My parents came to town this weekend for my cousins high school graduation party. It was very nice to spend time with them. The dogs were so happy to see them! Amelia spent Saturday night pouting and laying by the guest bedroom door. My mom and I went shopping on Saturday and I purchased some new summer clothes that fit. Now, I have a nice dress to wear for our 5-year anniversary dinner and some new outfits for my trip to Nashville, TN at the end of the month.

With all of my work issues, I haven't had much time to ride Frosty :( I actually missed my lesson today because I had to go in to work. Jarrett kindly went in my place. He said it went very well and that I have done a good job with Frosty's training. Last weekend, I did have a chance to take him to the Hoosier Horse Park for a cross country clinic and had a BLAST! I jumped some of the biggest things I've ever jumped and Frosty acted like an old pro...until the ditch. I couldn't get him over the ditch and I ended up falling off. It is something we are going to have to school on at home and then tackle it again next time.

Well, I have an early morning ahead of me...Good night!

Hello all you horse fans!

I have 3 saddles for sale. Below you will find links to two of the three items. I will have the third saddle listed tomorrow. Pleas email me at with any questions. All sales are final and payment must be made through Paypal. Buyer pays all shipping fees.

Saddle 1: 18" Medium Tree Collegiate Dressage Saddle

Collegiate Dressage Saddle -$250- 18 in seat, black, medium tree. This saddle is older and is in excellent used condition except for a small scratch on the seat. The tree is sound and the billets are in good condition. This would be the perfect saddle for anyone starting in dressage. I've had this saddle on numerous thoroughbreds and it has fit them all very well. It does not, however, fit my Percheron cross! No fittings are included in the sale.

Saddle #2: Royal King 17" Seat Western Saddle

Royal King Western Saddle - $100 - The seat size is 17 inches. I really do not know a lot about this saddle. It is in good condition, but it is not a show saddle. It has no silver or tooling on the leather. It is black and has a suede seat. There are a few scratches on the horn and skirt. This was my Percheron Crosses saddle when I purchased him. It fits his very wide flat back nicely. It would make a good trail saddle. It comes with stirrups and a leather cinch.

Saddle #3: Thorowogood 17.5" WIDE tree A/P Saddle with FISH system - Black - $150

This saddle is almost BRAND NEW. It's only been ridden in about 6 times. It comes with the FISH system and I'll throw in a pair of the synthetic leathers. This saddle fits my Percheron Cross well, however, it just doesn't fit me. This is another great starter saddle or a fab trail riding saddle. It is very lightweight and easy to maintain.
