Spring is so close!



For me, school is out in three weeks!!! Aghhh, I'm so exited. We have this training/practice thing for two and a half months.. so I'm going to ask my trainer if I can go there, and hopefully I can. And IF she can pay me a little, I'm going to save up for a car. And I have exercised more these past few weeks. Im happy, that I do stuff and don't just sit around... well... atleast most of the time :3
I've learned lots of things this year, and I am positive I will learn lots more. I WANT to learn, and I think that's really important.
About riding.. I have done better, then worse, then better and then again worse... So I dunno what to say about that. There is progress, and there also are failures.. but we learn from our mistakes and hope to get better as time passes.
One of my two favourite horses was taken away. I really liked riding him, next to Rimella that is. But, I hope my trainer will buy him someday.. I dunno.. I really liked riding him.
Then again we have a young pony mare to train soon.. Can't wait!
Ohmy.. I have so much to do this week...
So farewell for now!
May the odds
Be ever in your favor
heh :D
bye :3

Been awhile


So, we've got some catching up to do.... a lot of catching up actually. It's been a loooong long time from the last time I wrote here. Woah.. where to start...
First of all... I've changed schools. Im studying a speciality meant for horse people.. or more for young people who want to study horsemanship and everything related to horses. So, it's meant just for me. Next to that i'll get a high school education aswell.
It's been almost a year now studying there for me.. I've gotten so much smarter, experienced and more confident.. I know what im doing, I know how to handle horses better, I'm not afraid, I get to do so much different and experience so many different things. I feel amazing and it seems I'm on the right path.
My riding however... I have so much room to develop. Since I've been riding properly for only about 2 years now.. But I hope that this summer things are gonna change.. atleast a little bit. And ofcourse I'm better than I was a year ago. The summer was awesome and in 2 months It's gonna be summer again!! Can't wait!
I'm gonna ride more and I'm gonna be at my trainers barn a lot more than before.. gonna help her with tourists and barnwork and everything. I'm hoping to get to do a lot of different exercises and practice different things with the horses there. My trainer is really busy and I think she'll be happy if I'm so keen on helping her and the horses. Plus, I'm gonna exercise more :D Yay me! :D

I've got a favourite. Her name is Rimella and she's great. She has some flaws and maybe ignores humans a little bit.. but she gets along with other horses great. Everyone has flaws and It'd be boring without any flaws. And SOMETHING is appealing to me... like there's something drawing me to her... It's not just because it's great to ride her (tho she tends to speed up alot and such..) but there's something else... I can't put my finger on it, but there's something. I just want to work with her and make her see that there really is a human for every horse... we could complete each other. I feel something more, I don't just think she's a cute horse... I feel a bond.... or atleast something that could be. I can't really describe it.
There's a downside.. She belongs to my trainer and if I somehow manage to buy her after I've finished school... she'll be 18 years old. But she really doesn't seem old... She is young spirited and a free soul. I don't think she will be unrideable when 20 years old.. I kind of think she's one of those horses who live to be like 28 or 30 something.
I hope to do lots of things with her in the summer and maybe my trainer will let me ride her more. She kind of has this policy that you can't ride one horse for more than two lessons in a row. But we'll see about that.
It's funny, but I kind of love that horse. Sometimes I feel that she doesn't feel the same.. that she couldn't care less. But I want to light that spark in her eyes.. Like when she sees me she'll feel joy and happiness. I'd like to make that happen..

So.. here's where I am now. Craving for love from that One horse... Life is going uphill and I'm doing what I love most... I think I can say I really am happy. I mean, life has it's ups and downs and there are good days and bad days.. but overall I can say everything's great.

Sincearely,
Yours truly







look at that face...

Horses, Horses, Horses

Because this blog is about horses!
Well well well. It has been long enough.. I decided I currently have some time to blog a little. Mostly because I'm not well.. And my hand kind-of hurts. Yep, so much about that.
The lessons this winter were awesome! Just plain amazing! It can not be expressed by words... Karl-Erik's is the best! I have the best trainer! And the most adorable, perfect and amazing horses are located there.. It's like heaven on earth for me. And I can barely wait for summer! Really... I have a feeling It's going to be just the best summer ever! I'm going to spend lots and lots of time there. The summer is too short for me! I have so much planned for this summer, that I'm going to run out of days... I can't deal with this! Just make the summer one month longer! Is it so difficult?? It would make lots of students happy...
On another note. Since spring break, I have been going riding for two times a week. BOOYAH!  Before I went once a week (because of the winter and all) You know.. because all of our lessons take place outside. So we have to fight the power!!.. no no.. fight the weather!  And you know what. Spring arrived just last week. Isn't that fun? No. There was just too much winter. That's estonia for you. But this year really was exeptional.. usually spring isn't so late.
And last week, just when the snow was melting, we went on a riding trip (if you can say that).. Anyway the point is, we went to the woods with horses and we rode trough the village... It was tons of fun. Somewhere quite at the beginning of our ''journey'' we went up a gentle hill... And the horses just went crazy. They just went full gallop. It was amazing! Just exiting and fun and the adrenalin and everything!!! You can't really understand if you're not a rider yourself.. It was outstanding... Just astonishing what you could experience with horses. Both mentally and physically! Horses are the best...
Did you know, that if you ride atleast three times a week and do some barnwork aswell, you will soon have rock hard abs.. Horse riding affects many muscle groups, also the ones you previously didn't know existed.. Quite interesting huh? Horse riding is much more of a sport than you thought, I'm quessing.
A little foal was born not so long ago at Karl-Erik's . He is the most adorable creature on earth!! Really.. He is unbeliveably cute!
Did you know that I have started having dreams.. from the beginning of this year... I see so many dreams. And they are all very interesting. So I usually write them down. More about my dreams some next time.
Ever since the first time I rode bareback, I have ridden bareback tons of times more. It's really common now. After our lesson my trainer lets us ride the horses bareback. It's so much fun! When riding Manni, you feel like floating on a cloud. Really! It's so comfy.
Rimella is currently my favourite.. I just feel a connection with her. Just a few days ago I saw her in one of my dreams for your information. The dream was very clear.. but the meaning.. I just havent figured it out yet. Can't wait to ride her again. Last time I rode her was at the beginning of this month. I miss that..
You know.. I could talk on and on and on about my lessons and whatnot, but I'll leave that to the next post.

Oh. I almost forgot. I fell last week. Nothing is broken, I'm lucky once more.. But no riding till next week. Thats not so bad, right? This friday I'm just going there to see the horses and the little fella. I can't wait!

You are propably freaked out by the lenght of this post...
Naah.. you'll live trough it.
Yes. I'm quite finished.
Happy hunting!
Stay safe!

I love horse riding!!!

Even the thought of horse riding or horses draws a smile on my face. I dont know what i would do, if i couldnt do it anymore... I have learned a lot, in these past six months. I have been riding for about eleven months total.. but the past few months have been the greatest. I really love the way things are at Karl-Erik's and i am really fond of the horses..  I just can not wait for summer... I get so exited and start dreaming. I hope i'll be able to ride three or four times a week! That would be magnifficent.

The last lesson was absolutely thrilling. The horse i was meant to ride, likes to be grumpy from time to time. I really like her, she's a sweetheart. But when you start riding her.. and you are lacking some self asteem or not feeling very confident, you might have some problems with her. I can say, she gave me a heck of a rodeo the last time :D Well it really wasnt that bad.. as you know, people usually over exaggerate. But she did cick and jump.. it really felt like in some western movie :D  Altough i lost some control over the horse, i fought back and stayed in the saddle. Afterwards it felt great.. And i felt powerful :3
Eitherway, the lesson has tought me to be patient and to never give up.. I learn quite a lot there, and im happy about that.
At the end of our riding lesson we could ride barebac. So the horses would cool down. And it was so much fun.


 I rode together, with my friend Lisa. I even tought her to relax and enjoy the ride. I dont know the term in english.. the riding style.. When you stay in contact with the horse the whole trot. Anyway, we had so much fun. After the lesson Lisa stayed over and we had even more fun :)

I hope to learn more about horse riding, horses and barnwork in the summer. Meanwhile i must
 concentrate on my studies.. The tenth grade isn't particulary easy.

I hope next year will be nice and gnerous to all good people..
Till next time!
Good day

Been awhile ..huh?

Hi people from different places of the earth :D
It has been a long time, since i have written something here. But i have come a long way since then. I have really improved over the past 4 months :)
So much has happened ... I went to a horse riding camp, to Tallinn International Horse Show..I have got many new friends. I have learned the trot, the canter (kind of) and so on.
My last lesson was anything but boring :D
It was snowing... It was snowing a lot, and the weather was freezing. It took about 45 minutes for us to get the horses ready. The lesson went great... I got to ride without the saddle, it was a first for me. I LOVED it!!! :D
Our temporary trainer told us we could do whatever we want.. the weather was bad and we were cold, so we did the trot as much as we could. It was nice and warm to ride without the saddle..

I've got much more stories to tell... it's just that.... Im not all that familiar with horse riding terms in english. I have several estonian blogs aswell. I write a lot more there.


Ti'll next time!
Astala Vista Babyy ;D

Update :D

So.. i havent been here for a while. Basicly because im taking a break from horse riding. Im in the ninth grade.. i have lots of homework and tests. And, because i have been sick for a week... i have extra homework and tests... anyway, i love horse riding, but i cant do it for a little while now. But in the summer... im gonna ride untill my but hurts :D And i think i can get back to the saddle in late-spring. For now, i'll try to get well and study as much as i can..
I havent been blogging here, because i have several other blogs. One in english, and two in estonian. I have been blogging a lot in the estonian blogs lately... it's more comfortable for me, cause' estonian is my mother-tongue... im still learning english. And the second reason is, because i havent been riding for some time now... dont have anything to write :) ... but, soon i will have something to write, just wait. But before that, im gonna blog about the puppies my dog is gonna have soon :D ... for that, check out my other blog :)

New Year : 2012

Hello. First of all i want to let everyone know
Happy New Year!!!
I hope to get lots of unfinished things finished. I have a good feeling about this year, last year was not very good. Basically the fact that i discovered horse riding last year prevents me from saying that it was a very bad year. I learned to draw better, gained some new friends, my life started going a bit more uphill at the end of the year. It really was a tough year for me and my family, and we are hoping this year will be better. I want to let you know, that whatever happens, never lose faith and belief that everything will be better someday.



 - Happy New Year !!!
