zbh hop: every day fail

Nicole from Zen and the Art of Baby Horse Management wants to know about our every day fails. I LOVE this idea, and have seriously enjoyed reading everyone's posts!! This is exactly the type of humor I need as a rider to counteract the intense and demanding nature of certain parts of this sport. 

I had wanted to collect fresh material for this hop... but alas it was not to be. So instead I hit the archives HARD haha. So please to enjoy this collage of my many spectacular moments of fail with Isabel :)

  3. Ha, love it! The one of her peaking out around the tree is adorable, I wouldn't put that in the fail category at all. =-)

    1. Lol it was definitely super cute and I have a whole series of photos from that too. It's a "fail" tho bc she saw me pull out the trailer and tried to hide so I couldn't take her anywhere haha

  4. this is such a fun, lighthearted hop! I'll have to try and do it too. I think my favorites of you guys are the carousel horse jump moments and whatever was happening in that second photo down on the left ;-) sliding stop? slipping? rapid sitting down? quicksand?!

    1. I love the carousel horse moments too!! They feel so ridiculous to ride haha. And that lower left corner pic is us taking off down a bank. Izzy is fine but my position is quite suspect lol

  5. She has a lot of personality. Reminds me a bit of Chester, who was quirky, full of personality, and a bit hot-tempered. Horses like that can be fun though(at least I think so). Looking at these pictures and comparing them with recent ones of you, I can see that you have made progress.

    1. She DOES have a lot of personality - you're very right about that! And it does make it interesting haha. And actually my trainer and I were just talking about how much we have changed in the last year. It's pretty crazy!

  6. I love that one water fail when she is skittering sideways! You can really see her personality in all these pictures, so sassy.

  10. HA!These are honestly awesome. Something about a redheaded mare might help a bit, but I love that you can laugh about it and learn as well :)
