Enjoying my time in England πŸŒžβ€οΈ

Hey!

I’m sorry I haven’t been updating this much lately! It’s just hard to find inspiration when you’re not around the horses!

Now however! Things have changed and I’m very excited to slowly but surely let you in on all the little secrets about what’s been going on lately!

This is big!

I’m so so so happy I could burst!

If you follow my other social media pages you will know some already. Not to worry though blog readers – I will update you too!

But not in this post! In this post I will share some lovely moments from my time back in the UK which I’m loving to the fullest!

I was so happy to see Danza again! I’ve missed her so much! And the thoughts that’s been spinning around in my head has been so dark – having to think along the lines of having to sell my black princess was breaking my heart!

However – I don’t think I need to think down those lines any longer because I am feeling much better! And me and Danza are very happy about that!

The weather has been treating me quite nicely! Unfortunately the selfies are not improving!

All the horses here are well! I’m enjoying spending time at the yard again. Cuddling & hugging all the boys and girls! Watching the horses working. Seeing all the clients and my friends again – it is such a lovely feeling ❀️

Of course this one!

And my gerbils! But they have not been very willing objects to photograph yet, I will keep trying!

Hope you have enjoyed all these pictures! I do love sharing my pictures. Do you enjoy them? Or would you prefer less pictures and more writing? I’d love to hear your opinion!

Take Care

Waving Goodbye to 2018

What a year! I am not going to do a huge recap! I promise – that’s not really my style…

A lot of things have been going on! But the biggest are me starting out on these new adventures!

Starting my new company!

I started this blog & I started my vlog!

Sadly things lately haven’t been like I’ve wanted. But I’ve got a confirmed date for my MRI scan finally and with that, together with my x-rays, hopefully I will be back in business soon!

Well at least I hope so! My fingers and toes will be tightly crossed! Hopefully you’ll cheer me on to.

Me and Danza has had a very interesting year. We started absolutely buzzing. I then got sick. Somehow lost my confidence. Went so far down that I almost didn’t want to look at a horse and far less get on one. Until I looked her in the eye, kicked myself up the backside and fought my way back to loving it!

Never let fear stop you! Look it in the eye and say

Is that all you’ve got?

I want to wish all my readers a very

Happy New Year

&

May 2019 be a year to smile back at ❀️

Me and Danza will be walking in to it side by side. Looking forward to work together again! My horse of a lifetime.


Love Ancha XO

Yihaaa! Field monster

Hellooo

Long time no speak! I am working on a few ideas! Hopefully to come out over the next few weeks hence my silence!

Anyway! Danza – has gone from not wanting to be out to today be out for 3 hours!!!! I am in shock! And so happy!

Then something happened… I don’t know if it was a fire breathing dragon, or maybe a PokΓ©mon in the bush?

She has some moves! And gosh am I glad she doesn’t do this under saddle *touch wood immediately* because I don’t think it’ll be that nice to try to sit to… funnily enough!

Once the invincible monster, at least if you ask any of us, was gone, she settled back down.

It’s lovely to see her so happy outside. I know I’ve written about it before. But it really is something I love seeing. A happy horse in a field! I was so worried this was something Danza would never do.

It makes me so happy ❀️

I’ve had quite a nice weekend and I hope you have too! 😊

Get to know my dance partner – Danza

Continuing on the introductions, I think it is time for you to get to know my precious little princess!

Let’s get the facts out first.
Name; D’alie’s Dance
Date Of Birth; 26-05-08
Sex; Mare
Breeding: Sire – Sarento(Sandro Hit) Dam – Don Primaire(Donnerhall)
Height; 17.1/2 HH
Nicknames; Princess, Sweetiepops,Grumpysaur, Ploppsi, Sunshine. But the most used one is Danza.

Danza has been with me since December time 2016 so our relationship is still fairly new.
When I bought her she was being advertised mainly as a broodmare as she had shown to be difficult to sell as a pure competition horse.
I had seen her out for sale before, but for a price I could not afford. When I then saw her again, I couldn’t resist. I went and saw her. Rode her. Barely got any tune out of her AT ALL, but loved the feeling of her paces and the fact she didn’t hurt my body.
I shouted out to Heather ” She is soooooo comfy!”
And then I hear Heather say to the guy – your horse has found herself a new home. This was true.

Danza has a strong competition record up to Medium, and on her climb achieved scores up to 80% – we have not competed yet.

She is a lady who knows what she wants and is not scared of letting you know. She is very strong willed, has strong opinions about life – what should happen and what she don’t think should happen. She is quite some lady!!

But at the same time.

She is an incredibly affectionate horse. She will follow your every move around the yard & talk to you. Hugs and kisses are given at any time she can and she absolutely loves cuddles. Eating and getting groomed are two of her favourite activities. She is in her own way a little bit timid but filled with love.

I knew buying her was to take a chance on something that maybe would go well or maybe not.
Even though we have had our ups and downs – no horse has ever taught me as much as Danza. She is so challenging and no day is like the other.

She is the horse that has really opened up my mind, my toolbox is bigger than ever and I’ve learnt to become very humble yet with a no-nonsense approach towards the horses I work with.

Danza is a horse which is very awake and a little useless at being outside-she finds that quite terrifying. It ia getting better, the calming cookies are really helping her – though she is not wind or waterproof yet!

Patience is a virtue and princess needs daily reminders about this…to wait – take a chill pill!

She has the most gorgeous eye’s. They have so much expression and depth in them – she has a lot of history to tell.

And with that – the introduction is over. Hope I’ve managed to create a determined, witty and loving picture of my dance partner.

If you have any questions I will do my best to answer them!

Do you have a introduction post about your horse? I’d love to read it, please drop me a link!

Let’s kickoff this week with a waterfall of pictures

The last week just disappeared – what happened? Went so quickly!

Elisabeth is back home in Sweden and Evelyn has arrived and will stay til Friday morning.

Here are some more of the pictures from the photoshoot;

It is really nice to have some lovely moment’s captured like this, you can always keep them with you, forever❀

This week kicks off with some proper hot day’s and then it is ment to cool down a little, and even ment to rain – SO EXCITED!

Heather is still away, she will be back Wednesday night so I have a few more day’s of teaching, my real passion. I’m really enjoying Heathers holiday( haha ). I love riding aswel, but there is just something so special to be able to take part in and help other people on their journeys – love that!

And on that note! I want to wish you all a good start to a new week.

I think someone has swapped my horse for a new one!

Oh My GOD!!

Something is going on and it’s something really good! It is such a long time ago I felt happy like this – and gosh it’s a nice feeling! I almost don’t believe it – I am going to embrace it and hold on to it for as long as I can.

It’s something which is really hard for me! When I’m out teaching I’m comfortable, confident and trust myself – but take that environment away from me and I want to just go and hide!

Writing it here, makes it even more real! And that’s fine!

We all deserve to be happy and enjoy what we do and who we are and also the feelings we are experiencing, they’re all welcomed, even if they’re positive! ( I’m convinced you all think I’m nuts at this point! But honest to God – positivity is something I don’t often let in – it is a working progress! )

So anyway! My horse has been on the Calming Powder for about 5 days now and then I give her a cookie before riding and it’s like someone has gone and swapped my horse out for a new one! It is absolutely amazing the difference in her. I am over the moon!

Later today my vlog will hopefully be out – so excited can’t wait to share it with you!

17Mai – πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday Norway πŸŽ‰

Today we celebrate Norways national day!

πŸŽ‰Hip Hip HurrayπŸŽ‰

It has basically been a very ordinary day. But decided to do something a little special.

So I dressed up my horsie for the occasion, by the colors of the Norwegian flag, at first she wasn’t that impressed with it.

Then…she was considering it.

Then she conformed her mummy had gone bonkers.

Accepted the fact(which she already knew) and happily went along with it.

If that isn’t the prettiest face with the biggest ears then I don’t know what is 😍

We also ate loads of yummy food – to be seen in tomorrow’s vlog so don’t miss it!

Anyway! Bedtime now.

πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday Norway πŸŽ‰

Best Wishes
