Nice Move

Now I know we all love to craft and bake like there is no tomorrow, but what about everthing else we do that makes us amazing? A chance to discuss equestrian, skiing, hunting, and anything else that we do and rock at.

    Sorry to do this but I’m a softball girl. I’m not very good on a horse although I do love the animal, and I have never had the opportunity to go sailing. Golf is too quiet for me, but I respect the dedication that people put into it. I hope to one day get better at it and actually play again.

    I grew up on Quarterhorses and Paints, I did hunter/jumper for a couple years, but nothing beats the thrill of barrel racing and pole bending in my book. I love horses in general and support all forms of riding, except for those that abuse the animals themselves. Thats why I’ve never enjoyed saddlebreds. SLAM to all riders, who share my passion for horses!

    Um, what makes you think that every Saddlebred is abused? I know one who does dressage and he loves it.

    I guess I had a bad experience with a couple of high dollar show barns in SC that taught their Saddlebreds to pick their feet up by throwing fire crackers in the stall when they were foals.

    While that is sad, I don’t understand why that means you have to shun an entire breed just because some of them are abused. That would be like me saying that I’ve never enjoyed Quarter Horses because some of them are western pleasure peanut rollers or because I had a bad experience watching a video of Craig Schmersal abusing his reiner (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en_90D5TOKA).

    Horses of all breeds are abused. Obviously it should stop, but why discriminate against a perfectly good breed? A good horse is a good horse and should be treated as such.

    I love the diversity of sports that we’ve all participated in! I’ve played lacrosse for years and absolutely adore it, unfortunately I just don’t have time to play in college. I’m so envious of all y’all who ride, I used to ride Western when I was younger, but had to give it up. I also used to have a horse on my property (he belonged to the man we hired to take care of the property when we weren’t there) that I just rode bareback for years. I also love to hunt on my property!
    Besides lacrosse, water is my absolute passion. I love to slalom ski, wakeboard and wake-skate (like a wakeboard but with no bindings), and of course living in Southern Florida (when not at college of course!) fishing is a must!

    I wasnt trying to shun the whole breed, I’ve never been really into gaited horse showing and I wasn’t very sure what it was called. So I take back the statement against saddle breds and turn it against the treatment of horses in the gaited horse community. @ The Golden Key, you are very right honey I know there isnt a lady on here who doesnt treat their precious horses like a treasure. It just disgusts me to know there are people out there who do that kind of nonsense.

    Running. I ran 7 half-marathons last year!

    That’s fantastic! Do you train by yourself? I started running this year, and I’ve gotten up to about 4 miles a day, but I’m not sure how to tackle the half marathon. Any tips?

    I got a training schedule from a friend and once I did the first one, I just kept up with at least one long run on the weekend and I had no problem keeping up with the mileage and signing up for a half if I thought one looked fun. 4 miles is a great start. During the week I would try and do 3-5 miles 4 out of the 5 days then start working your way up one mile per week on Saturday or Sunday. Next week try doing a 5 or 6 mile run on Saturday, then go up a mile each week. Try and participate in local 5 or 10ks to help with your speed. In Mobile it is so hot during the summer there really are not any races (short or long distance) so I just try to make sure I get in about 30 miles a week and then I am good for the fall when there are more local half marathons. Let me know if you need anymore tips and remember to stay hydrated!

    You all are making me nostalgic. I used to ride when I was young, but then we moved and it wasn’t an option anymore. One of my best childhood memories is how proud I felt when I could finally get on and off my horse by myself. Are you ever too old to take it up again?

    Fishing=TSM. My summer plans include a lot of bass fishing at my grandfather’s lake.
