Posts Tagged ‘Horses’


So this weekend involved a lot of horse related activities. Yesterday Sydnie and her little friend wanted to go riding so of course I had to go out and saddle the horses up for them, and then about 15 minutes later they are finished and ready for me to unsaddle them. So I took the opportunity to convince my Mom to ride too. Highly entertaining. Then today we were maybe going to move them to my G-pa’s field  so we rode them down there (it’s like 2 blocks away) and I completed a life goal of riding at the hang out. Way to accomplish. And do you know what the best thing about riding horses on the road is? People driving by you. There is something about being on a horse that just makes people feel like it would be hilarious to yell “YEE-HAW!” out their window at you. Or maybe “YEAH COWGIRL!” or “HOWDY!” Seriously. I wish people were more original. Besides. I don’t even wear the hat. Oh yeah and last night I dreamed that I got to go to Europe to be in some jumping competition. It was an awesome dream. I think I would give up half my life for that to be real. :) Oh yeah and today is the BREEDERS CUP! Whoo! Go Curlin.

P.S. Sorry this post is boring. I’m out of ideas right now, and apparenly Kelli is not, because she’s been posting like 4 to my 1 lately so I thought I should hurry and just put something up even if it is of little interest. :)

You know what I will miss most when we move away on Monday? Uh… I know my family goes here… umm after that though. Our horses! So in honor of our studly steeds I thought I would post a list of our best horse related moments

  • The time you ducked under a tree and it got caught on the hood of your jacket and then it flinged back and hit me in the face, and almost knocked me off my horse.
  • Munchi’s trip to the Post Office- Ok so sledding behind your horse on a snow tube is an awesome idea. But just a little tip… you probably shouldn’t leave that horse unattended when a strong gust of wind comes and blows the tube up behind it. I wonder what people were thinking when they saw a fully saddled riderless horse with a snow tube tied to it pounding up the side of the road…
  • Horse Club- aw horse club. Who wouldn’t love horse club? I mean a giant club of girls (occasionally 1 boy) who are all totally wimpy when it comes to riding horses and then me, you, and Elyse running around bareback and doing ballet on horses. They thought we were crazy, but we definitely had more fun then them. And Jessica who hates to love us, but just can’t help it. And lets face it did those wimpy girls ever win anything but Halter?
  • Horse Shows- haha must love horse shows and the crazy groom night before where you spend all night shampooing, braiding, clipping, and polishing and then by the end it looks like all the dirt that was once on your horse is now all over you. And we vowed to never win a Halter ribbon, because Halter is stupid and boring. I’m so glad we never won any. Oh yeah and remember the girl we both inexplicably couldn’t stand with the sparkly purple helmet cover and the plastered on smile? Or Elyse’s conspiracy theory about Helen winning all the blue ribbons. Or the time we accidentally wore our numbers on our backs at like Block Buster or Jamba Juice don’t remember which. Possibly both.
  • Jumping Lessons- Yeah! I miss jumping lessons. Those were intense and the girls there were SO NICE! Oh wait… this isn’t a barbecue… right so they were not nice at all. In fact all the girls there were pretty bratty, but jumping was awesome. Remember how sore it made us? Like the day after we’d be walking up the stairs at school and nearly dying. And I got those bleeding saddle sores once. Worth it though. Totally worth it. I love jumping. :)
  • The mitten game. Oh how genius was the mitten game? Very.
  • When we were seriously obsessed with the Triple Crown (and Smarty Jones) and we staged our own races. And made it a movie. That was hilarious. I wonder if that is still on our video camera?

Anyways wow that is long. I guess I’m feeling pretty nostalgic right now. :)

Horseland Yeah Yeah!

So Kell just wondering what up with us loving retarded horse movies? My favorite thing about horse movies that there are really only two plots.

  • Friends with horses
  • Lonely child finds wild horse and tames it

And now we have to add a new stupid horse movie to our collection. It doesn’t get much worse than this…

But really the colored mane isn’t that far of a stretch one time with some extra hair dye we dyed our horses manes pink. It showed up really good in my horse especially as he is white…. hahaha. Why did we not take a picture of that Kelli? I would have loved to see the look on the face of Jessica… it would have been classic.

Things I Want to Do

  • In the summer I live in flip flops and Old Navy has those ones in every color imaginable for like 4 dollars or whatever. I need to go pick up some new ones
  • Horse Grooming party (before horse shows we just have this big groom fest, it takes hours, and somehow all the dirt/hair that was once on your horse ends up on you, but it’s truly fun somehow)
  • Go to Bear Lake…. living in Utah means your beach options are fairly limited, but I seriously love the lake.
  • Go buy some new books to read. In the summer I read a lot. I wake up unseemly early for a teenager on summer vacation and thus have a lot of extra time on my hands in the morning. Which would be why I am doing this extremely pointless post right now.
  • Finish the Summer ’08 mix CD. You just can’t survive summer without a great mix CD you can listen to with the windows rolled down.

Summer Goals For This Year We Have Already Completed:

  • dye our hair a new weird color…. purple…. It’s already faded out though.
  • Go tubing in the pond behind my house

Also Kelli I guess I’m finally ok about American Idol. I don’t know why it made me sad. I always thought David Cook would win, but I just think David Archuleta is better and deserved it more…. oh well. Oh yeah and have fun in Yellowstone. I wish I could have gone oh man. Take a picture of a do not enter sign for me ok?

P.S. If you’ve been wanting to go see Made of Honor… don’t. It’s pretty much one of the worst movies ever. Total waste of time and money. We went and saw it with some friends last night… yeah it totally sucked.

Nothing Really…

I actually have nothing to write about right now, but I am pretty bored and I was on here. Plus I’ve been a little slow on my posting lots lately. Here’s just some random things that happened today.

  • Zach got his new guitar. It is pretty awesome. I mean it’s red, shiny and new, but he totally still owes me $30.
  • I had an important realization. Ice cream is way better in cone form. Why would you ever order the bowel when you could have a cone?
  • 8 days until SPRING BREAK!!!! Can you believe it’s that close? I was sort under the impression that it was forever away. Not the case!
  • 63 Days until SUMMER. Which seems like a lot, but it’s not. That’s like 2 months and a day or something. Not to mention weekends and Spring Break. Plus it might even be sooner depending on how finals week works out. Can’t wait…. sort of….
  • I went horseback riding…. it is very muddy…

Listening to: Sadie- Alkaline Trio (which makes me feel kind of self obsessed or something, but I actually like that song, and I don’t think it’s because it’s called Sadie. It’s not like it’s very complimentary “your on your own my little nightmare” I mean I would hope no one’s said that about me.)

Quote of the day: (In honor of your day) Kelli: I want to be a ballerina! *attempts twirl, but falls on face*

You are so right the blog has been neglected. Especially from me! What the heck. And really, what is up with all the extremely boring blogs of note. Last week there was some boring bird watching one. Today we officially enter into obsession. I want those Jonas Brother concert tickets SO SO SO bad! Hopefully we don’t dissolve into screaming fan girls, but no promises. I will look for some night and day! No sleeping… well ok…. for awhile… so I can dream about the concert. I have faith though. eBay is a beautiful thing. I mean those Jazz tickets I scooped up were red hot :D Whoa. Is it really possible to be this obsessed so suddenly? So I finished watching The Horse Whisperer and now I want to ride SO bad. What’s up with it being night? Lame! I want to ride really bad. Whenever I watch horse movies I want to ride like crazy. It stinks not having you here to ride with though. But still I don’t care how cold it is tomorrow I will be out there. I will most likely look like a Yeti after I put on all my layers, but I couldn’t care less.

Things I Am Looking Forward To:

  • The Jazz game tomorrow (YEAH-YA!)
  • That amazing concert
  • Not having to work tomorrow
  • Super bowel Sunday

Things I Really Want To Buy, But Shouldn’t:

  • Concert Tickets
  • A Jazz T-shirt (with either Boozer, Okur, or Korver on the back… haven’t actually found and Korver ones. Probably because he isn’t even a starter)
  • Shoes (I am randomly in a shoe phase which is weird. I’m not a shoe girl really)
  • That StupidCupid T-shirt from Threadless

Lately we have been noticing that horse gear is kind of high fashion. So today I was looking at the horse catalog websites in my favorites and I found some great fashion for our next riding adventure.

What guide to bad fashion in the horse world would be complete with out the formidable overly sparkly slinky? This one reminds me of “fruity pebbles.” And really this was just on the first page. I’m sure if I would have kept looking I could have found an even uglier one, slinky makers love cheetah print. Remember spending hours and hours looking for decent one?

OK so obviously breaches are never very attractive, but that’s not even the worst part. First of all these are apparently “low rise” breeches. So you know…. totally in style, but what else can we do to make these even cooler… hmmm… well aren’t 80’s coming back? Leg warmers it is! Oh wait…. just pink knee high tights, and weird ankle boots… ankle boots are in.
Keep that pesky sun from your eyes, with these sierraclubish/cartoonish/plasticy sun visors!
This is my favorite. I mean like a helmet isn’t totally nerdy enough. And then you add the sequined cover (Are you also being haunted by memories of the purple helmet cover girl with the fake plastered on smile from all the horse shows?) Then since it’s winter you add this great little warming/bank robbery thing. If I was into wasting money I would totally buy you one of these for Christmas.
