Tarq and getting up in the morning

26 12 2011

Is not always happening! I have a lot of pictures of the Tarq and me trying to get him up!

Sometimes I just give up. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

Dressage with an Arab horse

6 06 2011

Is hopeless!

Here you see what happened when I came to visit my horse with wild plans of doing some serious training.

This horse is not awake!

And he never got any more awake…

He was still sleeping when  I left!!!!





Riding in the snow

4 01 2010

Today was a day of such beauty, it was magical! Beautiful! Everything was white, with the sun going down there were beautiful colours everywhere, and there was a snow-mist softening the landscape!
Al Tarq was happy to be out. Not much to amuse him at the moment.
It very cold of course. For tips on dressing and drawings of what to wear, and a drawing of an angry, fluffy Tarq, see my art-blog!

This is how I look when fully dressed for winterriding:

Sundown behind the trees

The world looked a very mysterious place

Zora in the snow. She walks fine in the snow, actually has less trouble with her elbow.

Within half an hour all our hairs were covered in a thin layer of ice.

Tarq wanted to go ludicrousspeed here, and although I loved a fine trot, I did think ludicrousspeed was a bit too dangerous. The icy slippery frozen remnants of the last snow period are still hidden under the fresh snow.

Zora’s hairs are also covered in ice!

Back at the village

Back, again…

25 05 2009

So, right after I got back from America I went on  a trip with my horse and my friends and I have just returned from a lovely weekend!

Very relaxing

Easter weekend, day 2 and 3

25 04 2009

We’ll skim quickly through the rest of the weekend, we rode the whole day on Saturday, had lunch at a pancake restaurant. There was something weird there… They arrived in like 10 minutes… All six! Which is far to quick to bake 6 pancakes. And they tasted very flat… we think they are old, they keep them in a fridge and reheat them, yuk!

Unfortunately I was hungry and ate it. Our horses chilling!

On easter sunday we had an egg-race! To be done without saddle. I was thinking I might not do well holding the egg, so I thought I’d impress by going without a bridle as well. That worked really well :mrgreen:
Except the last ”obstacle” a patheticly low ”jump”, and Al Tarq got the Heeby Jeebies, and absolutely refused to walk over that ”jump”….
At leas I managed to keep the spoon and egg….

Zig-zag around the cones:

Backwards between the white bars,

And the small ”jump”.
Sigh….
