Barrel Horses and spring fever....Great.

This entire week Selena has been such a little brat on the drills she normally does well. I think she's just feeling her spring fever. Actually, I think they all are. The horses I ride for my trainer are hotter than usual too.

Selena has always been hot doing straight lines. We've worked on it and she's gotten better, but god forbid you add the leement of loping straight lines AND quarter turns! Oh no, the princess couldn't possibly! She thinks it's much more elegant to gracefully rock onto her back legs or jump around and imitate the classical dressage moves! Cute, right? Princess-y?

Now Chaos on the other hand (God knows WHY he is named that. >.> I think his owners are trying to kill me.) prefers to imitate something a little more fun. I mean, that's his job right? Go in the ring and show off his athleticism?

I think he wanted to be like these horses.

So what about you guys? Anything special your horses try to do silly on the pattern in the springtime?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
