27 Days 2 Hours Ago

Handsome lion was mostly good today. He was super distracted by the horses being unloaded and tacked up next to the ring than what i was asking him to do. However after a few moments of me asking him to pay attention he finally did and we had a great ride! After the ride i went straight in to a photoshoot, be sure to check out @zieglercreative to see the photos! #leondazur #ginger #horsesofinstagram #horse

This photo isn’t from this morning but it was crazy foggy out! I decided since it rained off and on all day yesterday that it would be in my best interest to let Leo play a bit. Turned him out in the ring and he bucked and farted and galloped. 😂 put a saddle on for a bit and lunged him but didn’t ride. He was wild! Definitely made the right decision. 🤗 #leondazur #sunrise

What are your goals?! No matter how big or small. Since i don’t show as often as I’d like i have to come up with goals that aren’t show ring specific. Although i do have one, and that’s to do at least one event, if that’s even what you call it? Eventers help me out 😂 also i would love to be able to school at least 1.20m jumper courses. And my last goal is to be able to ride Leo completely tackless. #motivationmonday #showjumping #leondazur #horsesofinstagram

😂 my handsome weirdo. I know I say it everyday but I do love him so much. We worked on collecting and extending today. Frederic said Leo isn’t allowed to canter out of a 20m circle til he learns how to canter a 20m circle and not be a freight train 😂 valid point! Leo was great to the left with the canter circle but you could tell the right was his weaker side as he would fall apart or break to the trot if I wasnt constantly keeping him in check. He has been really great with all the homework so I’m very happy! #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #hunter #jumper #equitation

Sooo apparently my horse is super lopsided 🤷‍♀️ I had no idea! Anyone else have lopsided ponies or insight to some good exercises to build up the weak side? #leondazur

Any football fans out there?!?! Leo has the day off and I will be chillin and watching football all day 😂 who is your favorite team?! I was born into a Chargers family but married into a Cowboys one. So I am a fan of both 🤗 #footballseason #gobolts #goboys #sundayfunday #leondazur #equestrian

What an awesome lesson! I did not get bucked off! Even though Leo definitely tried. Learned so much and have a lot we need to work on. We have basically 2 “isssues”. 1: Leo has no technique and adjustability. I knew this but I didnt know it was THAT bad til Frederic started making us do certain exercises. 2: When we do the right thing I tend to mess it up with my mental block. 🤷‍♀️ started out over poles and we were getting that good but when we took it to the jumps I started anticipating his backside drama and prevented him from doing his job. So it basically opened up a whole new thing that I need to work on. Anticipating the drama has always been an issue for me and it’s at an all time high because of our break. By the end of the ride we had 2 quiet (drama free) jumps where I didn’t mess up lol. Great note to end on. I have LOTS of homework and Im excited to work with Leo on living up to his potential. 🤗 #learning #babyhorse #leondazur #hunter #jumper #equitation #eventing #dressage

Lovely lion, lovely morning. Soooo excited to jump tomorrow! I see this going one of two ways. The first way: Leo is fresh when we jump cuz he’s had 4 months off and we spend most of the ride just trying to keep me in the tack. Option 2: Leo is his typical self and finds low obstacles unamusing and plows through them like usual. I’m hoping it’s a little mixture! Happy excited, but not stupid 🤗 check back tomorrow for more details. #lesson #morning #leondazur #chestnut #hunter #jumper #equitation

Leo has just been incredible these past two days! All the buttons are right there and it’s very easy. Hopefully jump next weekend! 🤞 #leondazur #ginger #redhead #jumping #equitation #favoriteview

The lion got to jump today! Even if it’s just in the round pen haha. Ok his front end form may not be perfect BUT check him out pushing off with BOTH hind feet. It’s an actual JUMP. Not a “cantering with picking feet up higher” wooooo! Baby steps haha. But for our ride he was actually incredible!! Best ride in a while!! He was light and in front of my leg. Super amazing. #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #jump #chestnut

Transformation Tuesday! Swipe to see Leo’s transformation! The older photo was a few weeks after i got him, so they’re taken almost exactly 2 years apart. I see a lot of change mostly in his top line but he’s definitely developed everywhere else! #transformationtuesday #leondazur #belgianwarmblood #warmblood #chestnut

Leo was SO good today! We just had a nice light long and low hack today. Hoping to get some consistent rides so we can jump on our 2 year anniversary (Sept 10th) #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #hunter #jumper #equitation #star #ginger

If you don’t hug your horse like you did when you were 8 do you really even love them? Best boy ever. He was so great for our hack today! He’s coming back to work so well! #horsehugs #horsesofinstagram #leondazur #chestnut

My chunky lion was great today! Just worked on lots of transitions and sitting trot. We didn’t even canter and he was a sweaty mess! Thanks Phoenix 🙄#leondazur #horsesofinstagram #equestrian

#oldie Leo was great yesterday for his first hack back after his 2 week vacation. He was a little fresh but not naughty so I’ll take it! #jumping #leondazur #equinelove #horsesofinstagram #chestnut

Happy Monday! Here’s this cuteness to brighten your day! Today he will get a lunge workout (remember he forgets what a saddle is after time off, and it’s been 2 weeks). Hopefully my arms don’t die after all the silliness. I truly hope one day all I need to bring him back from time off is one day of a lunge workout. Not lunge workout, then a week of learning what leg is again with the possibility of silliness and more lunging. To clarify I’m not lunging to make him tired. I put him on the lunge because he will spend laps just bucking and crow hopping. It’s pretty much impossible to ride through that. 🤷‍♀️ #leondazur

Oh how I miss jumping the lion. I remind myself that horses only have so many jumps in them and that taking a long summer off is in no way hindering his development, if anything it’s a good thing! ❤️ do any of you give your horses long breaks or vacations? How do they come back from it? Would love to hear about your training strategies :) #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #equinelove #jumping #ginger #showjumping

Handsome guy is looking better today! Swelling is going down and he’s almost looking normal :) I think he’s getting a little chunky from the lack of exercise 😂 #cutie #leondazur #equinelove

Update on Leo’s eye. I think its lookin pretty good. Doesn’t seem to be bothering him at all. His whole face is a bit banged up so I’m still curious on how this happened. Antibiotics and butte for another week. I’m just happy to see him! I’ve missed this shiny butt! #leondazur

(@kirstenandleo_official)

2018-08-14 11:04:03

This is what i get to come back home to 🙄🤦‍♀️ Thanks Leo. Puncture wound through the bone to his eye. Luckily his eye is fine and he will be 100%. The only thing the vet is concerned about is a bone infection, but he’s on plenty of antibiotics and I’ll try to keep it as clean as possible! Poor lion, I’m sure that didn’t tickle! #leondazur

A year ago Leo made his big debut! What a wonderful memory. He was so brave and so good! Definitely missing my lion but getting to sleep in is nice too! #leondazur #hipicosantafe #santafe #horseshow #jumpers #horsesofinstagram #eventing #equinelove #showjumping

#throwback to my brave mountain lion going swimming! He seems to have completely erased this moment from his memory because now trying to get him into the water on the xcountry course just doesn’t happen 🙄🤷‍♀️ Flying to CO tonight! We go first thing in the morning to get our marriage license and it should hopefully be smooth sailing from there :) #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #equinelove #eventing #swimming #waterfall

Wedding Week!!!! I apologize ahead of time for not being active this coming week. Wedding takes priority. 😍😍 Also I am totally fine after my tumble yesterday. Neck is a little stiff and my right arm is a tad swollen but overall I feel great! #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #eventing #equinelove #chestnut #ginger

Sooo Leo (clearly being excited for my wedding) decided to play the “how well can mom hang on” game today without asking. Nothing like eating dirt 5 days before your wedding 🤷‍♀️ every now and then Leo gets this thought in his head that he can no longer have a rider on him and he will try every trick in the book until they aren’t on anymore. This is the 3rd time he’s pulled this same trick on me. Fortunately I am 100% ok, I may be a little sore tomorrow though, and I landed pretty softly. The best part is, I caught him grazing, when to spank him for being naughty, and he pulls and drags me about 5 feet and goes galloping and bucking around the cross country course, all the way down to the barn, and to his stall 🙄 maybe he was just hangry? 😂 I’m actually probably more sore from him taking off and trying to dislocate my shoulder than the actual fall. Oh well. #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #eventing #morning #sundaymorningrides

Nothing like being the first tracks in the freshly groomed arena. 😍 got to the barn by 6 this morning and didn’t die! Woo! It was nice too because that early the trees around the ring provide some shade! Leo was actually amaze balls today too, he was light, in front of my leg, and reactive! Be like this everyday Leo! 😂 #leondazur #chestnut #morningrides #phoenix #hunter #jumper #equitation #arena #horsesofinstagram #equinelove

The heat is real my peeps. Here’s your friendly reminder to stay hydrated! Woke up early to ride today got done with my ride and was walking back from putting Leo away and got light headed and my vision started getting spotty and very bright. Had to sit in front of the fan for 10 min before i could do anything. Heat exhaustion is scary and it wasn’t even 100 degrees outside yet. I guess I’ll wake up an hour earlier tomorrow 🤷‍♀️ #leondazur #staysafe #equinelove #eventing #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #chestnut

Found a luscious patch of grass for Leo to graze on. Very easy ride today due to no one being at the barn. Just walked around and worked on neck reining and moving off my leg. :) #leondazur #horsesofinstagram #equinelove
