When I saw pics of me riding Mio I never thought I looked good on him. We never really matched but with this boy it feels totally different! Like I truly belong up there and that he has been molded just for me. I am sooo looking forward to work with Odin and give him more strenght and power to become that truly amazing riding horse I know he can be. 😍 "second star to the right, and straight on til morning."
So after 3 months of healing from a knee injury I FINALLY today got the thumbs to ride my boys again! YAAAAAAY!!!!! Well Pippin again and Odin for the FIRST TIME!!!! He is sooo green in riding. Can barely walk straight - and turning is not something he was used to. 🙈😂 I knew this of course but it always something else to try them yourself. BUT despise being green he was suuuuper cool and so well behaved! So all we need is training - and that is something I truly look forward too!!!!! 😍💖 . I think Odin fits me so perfect! I am super happy with this boy and with him and Pippin I truly have the boys of my dreams! So whoever's in charge PLEASE let me keep them for many many years to come!!!! 💖❤
It feels kinda sad that they didn't get along so well. I would have loved to see them play and enjoy each others company as horses should. But hopefully it will work out later on with some time, patience and training. . Today I am finally off to the doctor again about my knee. Keep your fingers crossed guys!!!! 💖
In this short video you can see them "measuring" each other It was never a fight between them just too much "hard energy" and a bit of biting the flanks. When Odin is in better shape it is very much possible that it can work - time will tell. . And for you who ask I consider to one day breed with my boys. We will grade them both for breeding this September or next year depending on location.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. We tried to put the boys together today but we saw pretty early that they are not a good match together. At least not now. Pippin is in far better shape than Odin so Odin tires very fast and Pip takes advantage of that. So for now they will live happy calm life on each side of the fence. They can still have contact with each other but they mostly choose not too. . I've always tried to have my stallions together and with some it works perfect and with some not at all - mostly it's all about personalities. I would have loved to see them be together but it is not my choice but theirs. 💖

Thank you guys for all your love and support on my last post. 😭❤💖 I'm just in a pretty dark place right now with lots of anxiety and panic attacks. I have almost no energy or inspiration. I will come back - I always do but I might not be as active as I usually am over the next few days. I will not have a long break, I just need to find some peace and inspiration again. . Hopefully next week after meeting my doctors again about my knee I will get some new energy. I truly suck at being injured... I love you guys and thank you again for understanding 💖❤
Sometimes I wish I could just start over in life - just right the stupid wrongs I did, kept my mouth shut at some occasions... I realize now that my ADHD really has got me into some very stupid, unnecessary situations because my mind was speeding and could't really stop to think if it really was a good idea to do or say that..... Yes you grow with making mistakes but sometimes I think my mistakes has given people a very unfair view of who I truly am and sometimes I just feel like I am someone who no one really knows. . I think I know who I am - and who I want to be but why is that so damn hard? Sometimes I just hate that fake picture people have of you from over the web. Being an "influencer" being "big" on internet doesn't that somehow mean that you live the biggest lie? For example; few knows of my struggles, my traumas and how great my losses has been. The struggles I have everyday with my head, with my demons. That some days I just wanna sit in my bed and cry for no apparent reason - and I do. How I struggle with brain fatigue, energy loss, wanting so much but "can't". How sometimes it goes weeks without me riding because my brain can't muster up the energy to saddle up my horse. It's like living as a shadow of myself - and I miss ME. Why doesn't people talk more about this? About our struggles? Why do we always put up that perfect picture, lying to the world that everything is always okay? . And why is so that when we share the "non perfect" comments of hate, negativity and opinions always wants to drown us? Today we "live" in a polished perfect world where no one is sick, feels bad or have a bad day. When we ride and share our journey our horses can't loose balance, can't fall behind the vertical line even for a tiny second, it has to be P E R F E C T to be shown - but perfection is an illusion - especially in riding since every 100th of a second the balance changes... . So in everything we share this polished view of our life - we share our good days and hide the bad ones away - because the truth isn't always as fancy as the "perfect world of an influencer." .

Odin the skippyball 😂 . Sorry for being so inactive atm. It' s sooo hot outside and my knee is acting up so I've not done any work with my boys 😔 But an update is that Odin has been to the dentist, she pulled two wolf teeth and did some few minor adjustments but overall he looked very good in his mouth. No wounds or any scarring - just as it should be 💖 . Photo by @ravenite
