houston to florida

Houston was hard for me. From day one I had so much to learn. the first month was a lot of tears, and well the whole experience was just a big learning curve. I learned some valuable things that I took to florida with me. the main things I focused on was to be organized, respectful to others, and to be selfless. my first week in florida was easy because I took everything I learned in Houston with me to Florida. I was greeted by 2 wonderful working students, and we watched movies and went to dinner together. I had never had a working student say to me” I wish I could ride ike you. your a beautiful rider” from the start I knew I was surrounded by lovely people. my first day I rode Marco, and was told I could show him very soon. I worked with cece. a horse who wasn’t alway treated very well, and I am excited to change her. fallen a 5 year old very fancy but needs work on the connection. cece were already on my list to get in the show ring! when  buyers came I rode Marco and he was lovely. Erin gave me a big hug and told me ” I love you I needed you in my life!  im so happy you are here!!” my second day I galloped in the field with Marco and fell off when he tripped. I thought I wold be in big trouble as I saw him gallop to the barn, but Erin told me “my top riders always fall off there first week.” so I was in the clear! I rode 4 horses Monday, and my list is filled with lovey young horses to bring up. my first week was thrilling but the feeding overwhelmed me. on Sunday I was a little homesick, and missing dazzle like crazy, but I knew I was in the right place. without Houston the first week would have been really rough for me. I was most scared that  my roomies wouldn’t like me, but we got along great! I can’t wait to see whats to come in the future.

Here’s me Marco galloping, and me landing on the grass haha
