Horse Riding

Horseback Riding in Nosara, Costa Rica Chris Goldberg via Compfight

Hey readers,

I love horse riding! It’s one of my favourite things to do! Let me tell you a bit about horse riding.

I ride a horse named Sage shes a chestnut mare (in non-horsey words , she’s a brown female horse). She is a very tiny pony with a big attitude! If she doesn’t get what she wants she will get pretty mad. Her show name is Sugar and Spice Sage.

Sometimes I ride a horse named Cassie. She is also very sweet but she loves to jump really big! She is in her 20’s but still very active. Sometimes when we are jumping small she will over jump it. By over jumping it I mean she will jump way bigger than she needs to. But she is still fun to canter and trot on!  I love cantering! It’s one of my absolute favourite things to to in horse riding… besides jumping.

I have tried barrel racing once but I didn’t like as much as jumping. I have never really been a big fan of Western style riding. Jumping involves memorizing courses, body control and most important, trying to communicate with a half ton animal that doesn’t speak your language.

Something that I’m not quite excited for is November. At my barn we do this thing called no stirrup November 🙁 Absolutely everything is done with out stirrups. Jumping, posting, trot, and canter. I don’t like it because after the lesson it feels like you have done like 5000 sit ups and 100 squats. It involves lots of core strength.

I have most of my own stuff for riding, the only thing that I need to borrow from the barn is a bridle,  girth and a horse blanket.

Have you ever tried horse riding? Did you like it?

Have a wonderful day,

About Me #2

Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada

Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada

Hello readers,

My name is Kayley and I am very excited to start blogging for the second year in a row, I got Ms.Smith again. I am from the Comox Valley and I am in Ms. Smith’s class of grade 6 and 7.

I am a big fan of horse riding and I have been riding for 5 1/2 years as of now. My favourite professional horseback rider is Ian Miller who is a Canadian Olympian. I ride a horse named Sage shes super nice!

I am also very  interested in volleyball which is why I signed up for the school’s volleyball team again. I really like sports in case  you can’t tell…

But I also like animals. I have a dog named Dasher (as in the reindeer) and yes, if you think that is a weird name it’s because I was five when I named him and and he was my Christmas present. In the summer for the past few years I have volunteered at a petting zoo. I won volunteer of the year twice now.My favourite animal is the calf or the pony shes super sweet. I am a foster parent to kittens. We look after them until they are ready to go to a real home.

I really like playing games with my friends outside, going to the beach and swimming in the rivers. I love hanging out at a friends farm! They have huge pigs that are bigger that the average sized couch.One of the things that I have built a hobbie for is looking for river glass at the river.

I also love traveling! I have traveled to New Zeland, Ontario, California and lots of places in the U.S! One day I would love to Go to Italy. It looks very beautiful.

Do you have a hobbie? Hope you have a great day,
