So, basically, I'm going horse back riding again- TOMORROW! I'm so, so, so ​excited. I haven't gone for a year and 6 months (CRINGE). And, I just wondered if any of you had any tips or encouragement for me before I go. As I haven't been a year, it'll be quite.. new? Thanks. 

 

 

 P.S.: I had a fall before I stopped. Just in case you wondered.

​Lemme see....

Head up and always fcing the direction you are going.

Heels down

Shoulders relaxed and aligned with your hip and heel.

You know what a t-touch is?

And. . .always remember. . .the ground will catch you when you fall. ;)

I also had a fall. It wasn't bad, but I was scared and the horse I was riding was also worried about me. It was adorable.

​Before we go any further....

I AM A PROUD ELDER IN THE CRAZY CLUB!!!! I'LL SAY IT LOUD AND I'LL SAY IT PROUD!!

 

My name is Valasari, Viking from the Isle of Vanaheim. Home to the sick and elderly dragons who make their final pilgrimage to this sacred land. Not many Vikings have made it past the unblinking Sentinel gaurdians, who have stone-like statue appearances and have the element of surprise upon unsuspecting Vikings. They are actually blind, therefore rely on their hearing & smell. They have better hearing than most dragons because of their blindness.

 

Before you ask...YES I know that this is a Signature....buuut you know......

   ABOUT ME

 

I come from the Isle of Vanaheim. So far, the Sentinels have trusted me enough to live among the poor old dragons on this sacred Island. Of course, my Dragons are with me. They had to prove that they were trustworthy, as well as loyal. I have sadly moved away from Vanheim to live in the School. My goal is to become an Ultimate Dragon Trainer and then go back to Vanaheim!! I wish to see the Sentinels again....someday, after I have achieve my goal.

 

   ABOUT MY DRAGONS

 

I saved Saharii from a devastating situation. Dragon Hunters had caged him, but Hiccup and I rescued him just in time.

Now, Zeena, on the other talon, has a wonderful life, I am making sure of it. I wish to befriend more dragons. I hatched her from an egg and raised her. With some help from Saharii.

 

Join me in my quest to save dragons from scum like the Dragon Hunters and Viggo. And as far as dragons are concerned...I wouldn't trade them for anything.....Would You?

Funny things

 

I'm NOT clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me. The tables and chairs are bullies and the Wall Gets In The WAY!!

 

 

When someone told me I was in a fantasy, I fell off my Unicorn.

 

Friend: Did you fall?

Me: No, I attacked the floor.

Friend: Backwards?

Me: I'm freakin' talented!!!!!

The morale of this story. Just believe the cold truth that you're a Klutz. 'Cause I sure am.

 

If a robber broke into our house to search for money....I would laugh and search with him.

 

I hate it when people text me and it says "call me". One day I am going to call someone and say "text me".

 

I can't dance to save my life, but when I step in dog poo, I can moondance better than Michael Jackson. =)

 

 

 

Dad jokes:

 

 Dad lookes at me....."You know hon, I couldn't find a single shoe shop today". I breathe in a sigh of relief, knowing that he won't make a bad joke. Dad: "They only sold them in pairs". I bang my head on the wall.

 

Dad dances around in front of the ATM machine. Me: what are you doing? Dad: Just checking my balance. Me: *walks away to the car*

 

Dad in the morning: You know I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went....then it dawned on me.

 

Dad: Yesterday I ate a clock..it was very time consuming...especially when I went back for seconds!!

 

Dad: What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue? Me: I don't know. Dad: You can tuna piano, but you can't piano a tuna. Me: What about the pot of glue? Dad: I knew that you would get stuck on that! Me: OHHHHHHHHHH

 

Dad: Did you hear about the guy in KC who was addicted to brake fluid? Me: No..... Dad: Good news! He can stop at any time.

 

Dad and I were at the store and he picks up the velcro: I wouldn't buy anything with velcro....it's a total rip-off.

 

Mom asks dad at Thanksgiving: How does the turkey smell? Dad: Through its nose, I guess. Me: I'm going to bed.

 

Dad after a nice hot shower: You know..... Me: Here it comes. Dad: Singing in the shower while washing your hair is all good 'till you get soap in your mouth.....it then it just becomes a soap opera....

 

That's All Folks!!

for now.....(evil laugh)

​XD I know right!! It loves me so much!

The other horse theat I rode, Dean, he was such a little baby. He really was a jealous horse. When I rode Deshka, a little Arabian-Bashkir Curly, he would get all jealous and snort and pound his hooves. XD

Keep the reins loose, if you have them tight, the horse will get nervous.

Stay relaxed, the horse feeds of your emotions and can sense any fear, worrie, panic. . . Anything.

The reins are like an emotional and behavioral tether, when you are holding them, the horse can feel everything.

When you are wanting the horse to do something, it helps to think about it. Some horses can sense brain waves (ik, it sounds crazy, but it's true)

Always look at where you want the horse to go, it will follow your gaze, literally.

keep your toes pointed toward the horses flank, always. Like Shaft said, keep your heels down.

Lean back slightly but stay upright (that makes sense right?)

Don't squeeze it's flank or it will go faster, they hate pressure on their stomaches.

Make sure you reward the horse for obeying a command. Keep in mind that every horse is different, some respond to vocal commands, others physical, they are all different and it helps to get to know the horse a bit before you ride it. Hope that helps. ;)

........

I assume you really like riding, so it'll be good, even if you forgot some things, they're all already somewhere in your brain so they aren't completely new to you, which means it takes less time to learn them (again).
I've only been riding for a few days (2 or 3 maybe) and I haven't picked it up later because... well, it's expensive. I can't give you any tips because I know almost nothing about riding XD
Going back to the topic again: I wish you good luck! Have fun and a good time with the horse(s)!

that's what you need to no
Things you don't need to know about me and my dragons to stay alive: My viking's name is nightrainOfSummer. She's not really a character, rather a version of myself. I do have a story but it changes a lot so I don't write it here. One of my dragons is Sandstorm, a sand colored Sand Wraith with dark green spots on his body and yellow spots on his wings. He loves flying high above the clouds and feel the freedom and the wind beneath his wings. Then there is DeadWrong, a dark blue Deadly Nadder, named after a song by Adler. He's a bit of a rebel, likes to do things on his own and we had quite a lot disagreements in the past, but I strongly believe I can trust him. His best friend is Sandstorm, he's known him since he has hatched. icyRoad is my white Groncicle with a light blue pattern and a dark purple belly. He was eager to prove himself to the other dragons at the beginning, especially to DeadWrong since they are about the same age. His relationship to Sandstorm is like a good father-son relationship. I have two Whispering Deaths, Megaphone and Whisper in the Dark, Megaphone being slightly older than her brother. They're both black, Megaphone, named after the lyrics of Nothing As It Seems by Pearl Jam, with a pink and WhisperInTheDark, named after a song by Skillet, with a white pattern. They hang out with each other most of the time. Megaphone is the louder one, she's very talkative, while Whisper in the Dark is calmer and only talks when he believes it's important or when he's asked. dormantVolcano is my brown and red Gronckle. She's peaceful and easy to impress and loves playing games with other dragons, especially with baby dragons. She's a really good story teller. Then there's lightMyFire. This orange Monstrous Nightmare hatched on the day the roll-on containers next to my house caught fire (still don't know why), that inspired me to name him after this song by the Doors. He's pretty confident and likes to talk bad things about others, but only the ones he really likes. He's also protective and funny. RiverAndConcrete, my grey Hideous Zippleback with blue pattern, named after two of Izzy Stradlin's albums, is a bit older than lightMyFire. She's like his little sister and they love to tease each other and tell each other how much better they are, but they're also the ones they can go to when they're sad. Like Sandstorm, RiverAndConcrete loves exploring, only that RiverAndConcrete prefers to do it with others. Since Sandstorm isn't too happy about company when doing that, RiverAndConcrete is constantly begging the other dragons to come with her. The ones that usually join her are icyRoad, Megaphone or deadHorse, my black and white Deadly Nadder, named after a song by Guns N' Roses. She's getting on with the others pretty well, but the older dragons (except for dormantVolcano, lightMyFire and RiverAndConcrete) still see her as the "younger Nadder" which bothers her a lot, even though she loves to learn about her abilities from DeadWrong, so she wants to show the others that she's a different dragon than just a younger version of DeadWrong. Then there's Asura, a white-greyish Armorwing with red and black stripes. He's more of a loner, doesn't hang out with others that often, but if he's needed, you can always count on him. The dragons he's getting along with the best are Sandstorm and dormantVolcano. I also have a yellow Mudraker, his name is Mudhoney, like the band Mudhoney. He's a rather quiet dragon, but sometimes you can catch him playing around at the beach. If you do so, make sure to join his game, he's always happy to have more players, it doesn't matter if they're dragons, humans or other animals. He's open and friendly to everyone who wants to be his friend. His best friend at the moment is liveWire, a green Flame Whipper with a dark red pattern who was named after a song by Mötley Crüe. She's playful, a bit cheeky and she loves playing tricks on others, but sometimes she's going through dark times, however, those times have decreased in number and time. She still hasn't showed me why, but she promised to do it when she's ready for it. Then there is TBone, a purple Boneknapper with blue ends of the wings. The bones are white, of course. He's a curious and secretive dragon. His best friend is DehydratedCoyote, a light brown Shivertooth with even lighter stripes, named after two songs by Izzy Stradlin (Dehydrated and Milo). He's down-to-earth, calm, a bit secretive and open to everyone who is open to him. Sweetchbladeknives, an orange Razorwhip whom I initially wanted to call Sweet Switchblade Knife after the lyrics of Rocket Queen by Guns N' Roses, hatched three days after DehydratedCoyote. She doesn't have high demands to be happy, is more comfortable on the ground than in the air and is easy to get along with. My red Hotburple Dragon Cannonball, named after the song Human Cannonball by the Toadies, isn't only hyper for a Hotburple. He always wants something to do and gets bored easily.  Unfortunately, my other dragons don't have the energy to always play with him, so he's often unhappy. We all try to keep him busy, but it's just not possible all the time. Hopefully, I'll get another energetic dragon soon to make him happy. What's more, his wings aren't as strong as they should be because he was sick when he hatched, so flying for a long time is hurtful for him. Papercut, a purple and green Razorwhip who was named after a song by Nirvana, is the ambitious and self-critical sister of Sweetchbladeknives. She is constantly working on her abilities and tries to achieve better results than her sister. One of my Triple Strykes, Emperor Scorpion, is copper with extremely light blue, almost white pattern and yellow belly. She's quite sarcastic and arrogant, but once she gets to know and like you, she can be really sweet and may do everything for you. Firework, my dark blue Singetail with red pattern and yellow belly is shy and loves playing on the beach with Mudhoney. He doesn't mind getting dirty. I'll write something about KillerOnTheRoad, my baby Death Song, Emperor Scorpion, Demon Stinger, my Triple Strykes, Wildfire, my teen Monstrous Nightmare, Threadfail, my baby Hobblegrunt, Splashdancer, my baby Tide Glider and Quatsch und Tratsch, my baby Hideous Zippleback, as soon as I've gotten to know them better. I don't have a main dragon, but I choose one dragon to level up. It's DehydratedCoyote at the moment.

Outside of game info: I love listening to music as you might already have noticed, I'm watching One Piece (I still have around 300 episodes to go) and what I like the best about HTTYD are the dragons. My favourite dragons are the Skrill, the Stormcutter, the Triple Stryke and the Moldruffle. I also play Rise of Berk and I read Warrior Cats (in German). My favourite movie is Into The Wild.
