Day 19–A Discipline (Or a Few) You Would Like To Do


One of these I have done before, the others I haven’t! I drove Standardbreds and Morgans both as a kid (not professionally LOL but for fun for the Morgans and for summer job in college for the Standardbreds) and enjoyed it. Would like to do it again some day. I enjoyed sitting in the carriage (or sulky depending on the breed) and trotting around everywhere. I would love another Morgan one day and I especially love the smaller horses that drive (i.e. Haflingers or Welsh Cobs or whatever). How fun would that be??

Would not say no to one of these…

Or one of these…

I would like to say I would like to fox hunt but think that would be too stressful for me. With all the rules and my nerves of less than steel, umm no?? I just think I would be too scared of doing something wrong. Or scared of going fast and jumping. Or both.

me foxhunting probably…LOL

I always thought I would like to do Polo too. I have watched some matches and think it looks cool but I probably would chicken out on that too. LOL….Those horses are just SO agile.

maybe not. Can we do trotting Polo? LOL

The deeper issue here is that Remus isn’t going to learn to drive (he hates wheels), and he is not going to fox hunt or do polo. So I think I will stay with my discipline of choice which is eventing when we can, hacking as often as possible and lessons as needed or required.

Remus and me, not good or nice but just right! 🙂

As of right now we are supposedly off to the paper chase today but the weather turned horrid over night (Rain, wind, etc). I think it is still on but who knows. It looks like it is clearing some! Fingers crossed….we don’t end up like this today….or cancelled (Updated it is cancelled 😦 ). I do have a lesson with Emily on Tuesday before heading off for Thanksgiving!

  1. I vote polo, too, and I am 100% sure I would fall off if on a true polo horse haha. Bummer about the paper chase being cancelled. I had a little show today for Ellie to try another off farm experience and they cancelled it on Friday. 😦


  2. I want to fox hunt sooooo badly. We had plans all lined up too before Charlie’s splint abscessed and we decided on surgery. Blargh. Fwiw I think Remus would fit in quite nicely in the hunt field!!
