Hey everyone, I’m doing something a little bit different today and bringing you along with me to the barn. A year ago I started horseback riding and 6 months ago I bought my horse Java. My life has completely changed since then and going on this equestrian journey has been the most challenging, fun and fulfilling thing I’ve ever done. It hasn’t been easy and it still isn’t easy, but going to the barn is easily the best part of my day.
So, come with me as I head out to my dressage lesson and then try to take Java on a hack, which doesn’t exactly go as planned. Please keep in mind I’m a beginner and I’m new to this, so while criticism is totally fine keep it constructive. Also keep in mind that everyone does things a bit differently and what works for your horse might not work for mine and vice versa.
If you want to follow more of my adventures and lessons with Java, I post daily on his instagram account: https://instagram.com/javacupofjoe
Java is an 8 year old Percheron x Quarter Horse standing at 16 hands tall. He’s a big boy with a great big personality and tons of potential. We ride in English style and do a bit of dressage and jumping. He’s still a bit green and I’m very very green.. so we are doing our best! 🙂
