To those of you who knew him, Thomas Fahey was an incredible man. He trained many horses and riders to go on to win at many shows. Thomas Fahey died this past weekend in the Kentucky plane crash, along with a couple of his clients.
I'm getting together with the INHJA board to do a memorial for him, probably a memorial cup or class at the INHJA horse shows. If you want to get involved please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post to get my snail mail address.
So i havent read anybodys in a while, and i dont really plan on taking the time... so if you wrote something important and want me to know about- leave me a comment!! Sorry guys- i havent really had the time
Today was Game Day at my barn and we had a lot of fun. Neo was pretty crazy during the games, butoverall it was pretty good. We got 1st in the costume class, 4th in pole bending, and didnt place in barrels because of all the crazy stuff he did lol!! I accidently went the direction he doesnt like, so he got around the first barrel and reared like three times and then did this backward dance, pranced to the 2nd barrel, danced around and backed, galloped to the third, and galloped back, then cantered TOTALLY sideways. He also spooked at the starting line in the beginning it was really funny. I'll try to post the video of my barrels class- its pretty hilarious! But on to the pix- not a lot of action shots cause mom was videotaping me.I will post more pix of other peoples costumes when i get them developed. ( Read more...Collapse )
So I was in my dorm room today and I looked out my window for no reason and this big chestnut horse just went walking by, and I was so mad cuz I didn't get his picture. Ok so I went to go get lunch today and they were having some kind of police exhibit/info thing in front of the student center (which is why the mounted police were there), and I raced back and grabbed my camera, and so I have a few pix (sorry I don't have more, but I didn't want to bug them, and I have class in a little bit...)
