My horse has decided that he enjoys pasture ornament status and is fighting hard to keep it. He's un-rideable until pads/shoes are put on him but the farrier can't do that until I get the massive case of thrush he picked up, while dealing with an abscess, cleared up.
Soooo, I was offered one really fat pony to ride. Pony is safe, comfy and has one speed.... STOP. Perfect if you'd like to stand in the shade and take a nap. But since he is very well-trained and safe, my trainer wants to work on my seat at the canter with him. My horse is pretty green and unbalanced at the canter and unbalanced me + unbalanced him = one hot mess.
So Thurs. My trainer is coming to work with me and fat pony. This should make for great entertainment for the neighbors, I got him to canter last week..... I was beating him with a crop while my friend chased him with a whip!
