But, I'm home now. I've had a great week with my family, including the fuzzy children. I haven't ridden because my tail bone is still very sore. It does seem to be a bit better, but I don't want to push it. I've made the horses do some round pen work and I've lunged them on a slight hill to make them work a bit harder.
Today I put some empty feed bags in the round pen - oh horrors! But, the boys finally got where they would stomp on them as they trotted around.
So, welcome to the Blog Hop! It's time to find out more about each other.
I hope you can join in the fun.
In case you are new... or as a reminder:
Each week I'll post two or three prompts.
Write about one or respond to all.
Or, just link your blog to mine if you
care to share something else about yourself.
complete your blog post (or comment) by asking a question of us.
I am really enjoying answering your questions,
and look forward to seeing other responses, too.
I think it's a great way to have a conversation of sorts!

Hobby Horse Blog Hop Prompts - Week 11:
1. Imagine that you are in an arena (or in some other training situation) and an instructor is talking to you. What is it that he/she reminds you to do?
2. Tell about an "Aha!" moment when it all came together and you felt absolutely, positively, button-bursting happy and proud.
3. What event or activity are you looking forward to?
1. My instructors are always
telling gently reminding me to put the back pockets of my jeans on the saddle and pull my belly button to my backbone! I tend to arch my back and thus I don't offer the horse any softness.
2. My most recent 'Aha!' moment was at the winter clinic with Brent Winston. He helped me truly understand how to control Pippin with my body and seat. It is because of Brent that I can now ride Pippin on a looped rein and transition up or down in gait. I would never have thought I could do that.
3. The sheep dog association is having another fun day soon. We'll be taking Tucker. I can't wait to see how he does with his second exposure to sheep.
Since I have already asked you three questions, I won't ask another. But, I can't wait to read your responses and respond to your questions!
