Today he would like me to share with you his Top Ten Horse Treats. Every pony hopes to wake up on Christmas AM to a stocking filled with carrots, apples, and other not quite as healthy treats. Here are Bastians favorites...
A marshmallow sandwiched between two yummy paddock cakes. Paddock Cakes are probably the best quality horse treat Bastian has ever eaten. They smell sooooooo good, I am always jealous when Bastian has these and so tempted to eat one.
So keep this in mind as you holiday shop for your pony. They will positively adore you if you buy them S'mores Paddock Cakes....
Bastian has been chillin' so far this month. With the extra hours I've been getting at work, I haven't had the time to see him as often as I would like. I think I've only ridden four or five times this month. I am totally going out tonight and plan on riding tomorrow and Thursday as well before going to Erie for a few days, then I'll have a whole week to ride and visit with him :)
Kristin turned him out in the arena the other day with Gria while she was tearing down jumps and he apparently jumped over everything on his own like he was pro, he's giving me a pretty clear message: He wants to be an eventer or a hunter (or both).
So I'm going to try really hard to get him on track to do some eventing this summer at some schooling shows or if things work out financially a recognized event. I'm gonna aim for the schooling series at South Farm and Buckeye. Close by and affordable.
Unfortunately, he needs to continue to feel my Dressage needs as well. I've picked out three shows to attend this year (again, if financially feasible) and then Regionals in September. Hopefully Bastian is up to the challenge of the Para-Equestrian Test for Grade III, I'm gonna start showing in those classes at shows so I can be ranked in my division. There's a method to my madness..honest!
