Busy Weekend

Sorry I haven't got a real Choke update yet. I went out Sunday night and TJ wanted to watch football! What was I thinking?? Haha, no I knew he had planned on it, but I stopped by after my lesson with Remington so I could practice some tent pegging. We're supposed to get good at it by April so we can do it in our demo. Remington seemed to enjoy it, so that's good. Luckily, we worked on straight lines in our lesson, earlier in the day.

Anyway, I did at least ask about Choke, and she is doing well, of course! Tracy said she'd try to get some photos and video to me this week so that I can do a little update! I'll be sure to post as soon as I get some material!

Jennifer tagged me for this fun little list!

Yikes! That looks hard!! But I've got the "been horse back riding" thing down. I've always wished my boyfriends and now husband, would kiss me under the mistletoe, but apparently, that's just in the movies. You paid for a meal with all coins?!? And you skip school?!? In college, I always thought schedules were merely suggestions of when I may want to be there--or not.

I have a question for you, since it's a "bucket list", what would you put on there to do that you haven't done?

Keep up the good work with Remington.

Jessie said...

I should have thought to include that, Linda!

Obviously it's a horse related aspiration.

I'd like to hold my own on a mustang in a NRHA show.
I don't need to win, but I'd love to do really well against the Quarter Horses...

Pony Girl said...

Fun list!
Like the new look over here, too! Did you design it yourself? ;)

Linda said...

Has anyone ever gone that far on a Mustang? That would be COOL!!

Tracey said...

Thats a mighty long list!

Tent pegging...what an odd little sport to be sanctioned by the IFES.

Linda, Bobby Ingersoll won a futurity aboard a Kiger named Kiger Cougar. There have also been a handful of others to make it big.

Jessie said...

Thanks for the compliment on my layout Pony Girl!

I did design it myself. I was doing a little research on blogger backgrounds and found that you can use one's that you've created as long as it's a JPEG of a certain size. So, I went ahead and did the background you see in Adobe Illustrator.

Tracey, thanks for answering Linda's question, I wasn't sure of how many people have actually ridden Mustangs in the big shows...
