Chris & Bonnie Ride Out Again

Another dressage event for Chris and Bonnie (last one HERE).

Alex chatting to Chris & Bonny before the event

During warm up, Bonnie had already decided she wasn’t going to play.

The end results sheet said exactly what Chris thought :

“Well done! A lovely little horse. Just needs to show more freedom of step and bend.

Yeah, Bonnie was in a playful, stubborn mood, so I’m not surprised she appeared reigned in!

Excuse the music, but the wind noise was terrible. Mute at will!

Chris & Bonnie Ride Out

She’s been waiting for this to happen for about 25 years…

Chris has finally had the chance to compete in an equestrian event…. on her own horse… Okay, pony… but she thinks she is a horse.

Chris took Bonnie (Orchid Silver Lady – a Highland Pony) to a dressage competition where the two competed together for the first time.

Chris has worked with Bonnie for the past few months, and today the hard work and effort paid off, as they took 2nd place with 64% – narrowly missing 1st (66%).

Me being me…. the whole thing was captured on the iPhone equivalent of film…

A cat, a cat, with a two tone…..crack

At the back end of last year, Jacks, The Thoughtful Spaz posted a blog entry that requested 6 items of randomness from her friends and readers.

I read through my answer again today and decided to post in Sometimespace in an attempt to keep the smiles affixed to our faces. I want to use the blog to publish the news and rantings as and when things happen to the family – but at the same time I don’t want it to get too heavy or depressing, as that is no good to anyone, least of all me!

So, as a kick in the face to the bad stuff that is going on (just look in my blog archives from September 08 through to today…), here are the 6 randomossities about me that I laid out for Jacks:

6 random things….Nothing is really random if it has been asked – but as near as can be …. but I’ll do my best

  1. I once had a pony tail (I now shave the lot)
  2. On my first parachute jump my chute didn’t open properly and I had to take emergency measures.
  3. One of my cats has one ginger fur covered bum cheek, and one black fur covered bum cheek…. very funny when she walks away with her tail in the air. Yes, I have a cat with a two tone crack.
  4. I hate Parma Violets.
  5. I once saw Lou Reed perform with only 50(ish) people in the audience. The power failed, so we all gathered around him and he did an old acoustic set of Velvet Underground stuff.
  6. My second car had a concrete floor.

How’s that?

If you care to, then please comment with 6 of your own…
