time for an update i suppose…
this past weekend was nice,
i went to the barn and got to see my baby
rode mo for about 2.5 hours, holy crap my butt was so sore.
i hadn’t ridden in over a year and i haven’t oiled my saddle in probably thrice that, so yeah, ouch.
he did at one point decide that while we were running to throw his head up straight so i had no control over him
(he needs a tune up badly. wouldn’t respond to my seat/weight, and his mouth is hard as rocks, plus his curb chain was mia)
pully-reining him (and numerous other stop-techniques) and didn’t work,
i leaned forward at a full flat-out gallop and fucking punched him in the forehead.
yeah, he stopped.
i felt so bad though.
i didn’t want to have to hit him, but he needs to learn he can’t run away with people
if i didn’t have as much experience as i do, i could’ve been seriously hurt
mo is the greatest horse, he is incredible but since i haven’t worked with him in so long he is rusty and really needs work.
unfortunately i don’t have t
he time or money to do that 😦
it’s such a shame…
after i went and picked up liz and her boyfriend and went over to see joy and the baby
omg cutest kid evAr
and he is a giraffeophile (hah, rad word)
then what, uh, went to paulie’s new apartment and chilled there for a bit.
spent most of sunday sprawled in front of the tv since i was in so much pain from riding i couldn’t move
i don’t remember the rest of what happened but it really was a great weekend
got back to philly and went to watch fireworks with chris, mike, and their three other roommates
i never quite understood philly & the 4th…
i mean, who’s brilliant idea was it to shoot off tons of fireworks (read: explosives and fire) from the steps of the fucking *art* museum?
also, equally as random was the impromtu (well, at least to me it was) elton john 30minute set.
it was kinda cool seeing him live, not that i ever had any desire to do so, but it was actually kinda neat.
the end.
