Well we're back! :) Today was a great day, and Mudpie did amazing! I memorized the test wrong because I still didn't understand it. XD But that's okay, because this was just a ride-a-test thing, and I was doing two tests anyways. I got it right the second time! Mudpie was so great!
I was distracted and irritated during my test because one of the trainers was sitting there yelling instructions at me like a lesson. I was trying to concentrate, and she was just driving me up the wall, but I couldn't say anything and be rude... *huff* I was thinking, "Shut up and let me ride this dressage test – we can worry about his ribcage after
I'm done with this." xD
It wasn't officially judged, so I can't say what my score was, but we did great(: I have a picture from the morning of him all wrapped up and loaded!
I felt like our diagonal lines were really great! We got our leads right every time, which is a big deal for us! He carried himself and had his back engaged and I was so happy about that! He was really agile and responsive today, and that was great. I was surprised, because you'd think after 6 months he'd be bad for a while, but he's back and better than ever!
