Yeah okay so I feel like the devil has personally sent this heat wave from hell because Selena was saddled for not ten minutes even before she totally started sweating and it was so muggy. We hosed her off and kept her under fans and she was fine, plus it was a lot cooler in the arena but good lord. //rantrantrant
I'm not going to post the regular barrel run because she had a really bad slip at the first barrel because we were at the VERY bottom of the ground and she couldn't handle the big ruts from the other horses. It was way reflected in the rest of the run. She was so flustered after that I just let her go nice and easy.
I did four events today, and here's a video of three of them:
Speed Barrels -
She wanted to go wide and veer right after the end barrel. Whatever that was about, she's never done that before...
I went in easy. She was pretty confused but she did well anyway.
She likes this event. Again we were at the bottom of the ground so I was worried after the first barrel run, so I didn't push her into the turns. She still made a really good run considering my nerves about her falling.
