(found a flat bare spot had to lope)
(Got Neil to take a few pics after)
(One day he will get me smiling and my horses ears up)
(and the cat has to come visit)
(and climb on one shoulder of Neil and down the other)
(came back to see a jealous colt)
(and look at the pretty tail...and rump)
Well finally Saturday and it worked for us both so away we went and since we were meeting we decided to ride too so went to the nearby arena and just rode. I took Jess, the colt loaded perfectly again and off we went. So nice to ride in an arena again, we just worked on basics again, and I am trying this year to get walk to lope transition but I am bad for kicking too hard and she goes into a gallop or not enough and she just trots. And I can't do it too many times or she gets anticipating so we got it a few times and that was enough. We rode pretty good and then cooled out bareback I wasnna get better so thats how I do it.
(Afterwards there was not enough tie rings in the arena so I just left Jess loose
and she just stood there like why are we not going???)
Then Sunday he was having a clinic and we debate on going cause its fun but so many times our horses are way broker and we know more than the rest so we end up hearing a lot and he talks a lot so we get bored but he said he'd help get a first ride on the colt so we went and it was a lot like that but was good as well. I took Jess and he knows shes broke so when others were working on stuff that was easy for us he got me to do it all one handed which is harder and yet kinda easier cause I don't use two hands very well anymore never ride like that. So that was kinda neat to make my brain work in ways I haven't done in a while. I'm thinking of taking lessons there with the one girl and my other riding buddies later on maybe do 2 half day clinics one with the broke ones and one with the young/and Pally, should be fun but wont be for a while when we can go consistently.
Since we brought the colt we thought wed make it easy
and just tie to the one side but there is only 2 ties
so I just left Jess loose and saddled her in front of his pine tree,
We don't have any so I need to get some pics of them)
(Even played soccer, Jess wasn't enthused but she did it)
And now after 3 days of riding Jess is a bit sore, she cant take that when not in shape anymore so she will get 3 days off cause I'm busy and then I go on a scrapbooking retreat for the weekend.
