Half a Horse

There are things that I’ve kept off blog because:

1. It’s personal

2. It’s not set in stone, and things change fast

I’ve been playing with my budget and really toying with what I want long term.  A new horse is a huge commitment, and to a certain degree my life is too crazy to think of bringing in my next dream horse home right this second.

But.

You know I couldn’t just sit around right?

So thanks to some amazing friends, my great trainer and the husband of the year, I now have a half lease in place.

Half of this horse to be precise.

Shhhh….A wild Deedee in her natural habitat.

Demelia and I have gotten to know each other a bit over the past few months, and like I mentioned before, I had a big ole crush on the little sausage warmblood.  When the situation worked out that she needed another consistent rider, and I was dying to find something to ride…well it’s a match!  The lease just kicked off, and both of us are going to be cardio-ing up for the first few weeks to get as fit as possible.  The mare is by far the most broke, and trained I’ve ridden consistently since high school, so I’m really excited to see what this partnership will bring.  And really?  Just look at that sweet face!

  1. Congratulations. She is very cute! I half – lease my second horse so I can go on long trail rides. It’s been over a year now and things are working out fairly well. My own horse is retired to only very light walking rides…so it’s nice to be able to care for him and yet ride when I want to.

  2. aww yay i’m so happy for you! leasing has really proven to be the best situation for me for these past few years. there are short comings sure, but it’s all worked out pretty well. i hope you and Demelia have a great time together!
