My First Award!! Exciting!!

I got my first award today i am so excited about it!! I was selected by as one of her top 5 favorite "up and coming" blogs. I would definatly recommend to anyone that they should read her blog it is very inspirational. It is a story of a nervous rider overcoming her own obsticles and her horses to become an absolutly amazing pair. I love the updates and the honesty that goes into every post. I look forward to watching them grow together and their progress!

Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. Here are the rules:

1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award
3. Pick your five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs!

I like lists and following rules. It's too bad there aren't more rules about what to blog about. A giant blog list that you just follow items 1-50 and that's your topic. Creativity? What creativity? Imma list maker!! And actually, it's much easier for some of us to get creative if we have some limitations set up. Otherwise we end up WAY too avante garde and our creativity resembles bad performance art involving toilets. But enough about art and toilets, let's give out some Leibster awards!!!
I love reading blogs about busy moms trying to fit in their riding careers, it motivates me so much to be better for my family and my horse. I also enjoy the humor in this blog!!

Everytime i read a post on this blog i learn something new about horses, extremely education and very well written story of a Rider building her business as a riding instructor.

Another one of my favorites, always puts a smile on my face. Written by an "aging rider" (as she calls herself) and her experiences with riding and horses.

A blog about a rider trying to get a new breed more recognition in the world of eventing. Tons of photos and video's. I often learn things here that i use myself.
This is a blog that is always full of photos and happy updates, she is an amazing rider and extremly patient... another blog i get ideas from.

Sorry i dont know how to sum any of these blogs up in a scentence. All of them are fantstic in their own way i love them all.

On the horse front, I put G in his stall last night for the entire night and when i came back this morning he was still in the stall and wasnt having a nervous breakdown so that is good news. I also was able to put him in with the herd today. He caused what could be compared to a prison riot, but seemed to be blissfully happy. I will be out thursday to work with him a bit then Friday will be out first lesson. I cant wait!
