Feeling Fancy

Well, not too much excitement going on. Jetta was good today, we just worked on stuff at the walk and trot, I decided just to keep it simple today, though it was so hard not to canter when Jetta was being so good and I didn't want to blow it. Her trot is just getting better and better. I've been working on collecting and extending her, really asking her to lighten up her forehand and it shows! I got a compliment last week on how good she was looking which made me really happy. Her trot is getting that "bounce" in it with a little more suspension but not a lot of rushing or speediness!

Plus I'm feeling a little bit fancier with my newly clipped horse. She looks like a ''real'' show horse now! (Though in reality, a "real" show horse would be fully body clipped, but nevermind...) With her being clipped, this gave me the excuse to pull out my new quarter sheet. I've wanted one for a long time but they can be so expensive for such a small scrap of fabric! But, with my newfound addiction to ebay, I found one at a great price. It's a tad bit large, so I think I'm going to take it in just a tiny bit in the area where it connects over the withers, but otherwise, it makes me feel fancy. And warm.

Modeling :)

Lookin' stylish.


  1. The Newmarket blankets are worth it! I would love to get one in the gold for my pony, but we've never had the need for one, and probably will not this winter yet again! It looks lovely on Jetta, though!

  2. Oh I love it! Just wearing that would make me feel like the real deal Maybe I will justify it one day :)
