Life Update #2

Well spring has definitely sprung…

Being a first time horse owner and a complete beginner has definitely been a struggle but i think i may have kicked spring in the butt!

Realising that the grass is so much greener and making Amy crazy if done my research and with a little bit of help from my friends this is how I’ve stopped springs nasty affects on my horses behaviour..

First up i want to give a big shout out to Julie Duffy who has been sending me some tips and little riding plans so i can get Amy back into work.

Following this blog post i will be doing a post about what i feed Amy and why (also including how I’ve kicked springs affects in the butt) and then i will have a short and sweet post about an amazing experience/session we had with a beautiful lady called Emma who helps you connect and speak with your animal.

Amy and myself have definitely grown together in the last few weeks with all our groundwork and riding together. Ive seen a big leap in my confidence and also seen so much improvement with Amy’s riding and she is certainly getting more of a personality! Apart from working my butt off, saving money and looking after my grandparents dog while they are away on a cruise i have also been sewing a few things for Amy one in which i posted on the facebook page earlier this week.

It’s also Amy’s birthday on the 22nd of October and i want to do something fun for her any ideas??

Ive also heard back from the organisers of equitana and i have finally got my draft roster so if you are going make sure you let me know and if you see me there be sure to come over and say hi! Ill be out in the crowd helping horses, vehicles and you guys cross areas safely. My shifts are in the morning 8am-1pm so I’d love to catch up or meet any of you in anyone is heading there.

A little update on Amy’s foot..

Her foot has healed amazingly and i am so happy with how it is looking not that looks are important but I didn’t expect it to look this great! She has had no signs of pain while riding and no heat either so thats a really big plus!

I hope you are all enjoying this crazy October weather (In victoria that is) and i cant wait to hear your thoughts and opinions on my blog post to follow this one!

Sixteen Hands Candle Co

Boy oh boy are these candles amazing!

Before you read any further yes this is semi sponsored… I mean this in the way that I reached out to this company and they sent me 3 candles and one sample I paid shipping costs (from California) and in return I would do a blog post BUT I may have fallen in love. I love candles but usually forget to burn them lol but these amazing candles have given me motivation 😂

The sample I received was “heels down” after smelling this bad boy I went back on to their shop and purchased a load of melts and one other candle hence the use of ‘semi sponsored’ and I hadn’t even burned any of the original ones yet!

I marched off to Kmart and got myself a $3 wax burner and went right back home to start burning my heels down scent it filled my room and the scent has lingered overnight. The reason I reached out to this company is because of how they are made, the packaging let’s be real it’s bloody cute!

 

But also where the money goes.. we all know competing is expensive and all the things that go with it so the money you use to purchase theses amazing candles with goes towards the young creators entry fees and such so she can go to events and compete! Now that’s smart and she is doing something she loves to fund something else she loves!

Win Win..

Now the prices are in USD and unfortunately the shipping is uber expensive but if you are interested in purchasing one of these delicious candles I may be able to organise a bulk order if enough people are interested

If you do happen to go through her reviews please kindly ignore the one about the candle filling a lady’s house with soot and leaving her surfaces covered in a black layer of soot because it’s totally not true at all!!

I also want to point out that the sent “wash rack” smells way better once it’s burning it’s very strong but once you are burning it the scent is ever so delightful!!
