    Oh No!


    AHHH My lesson is in 3 hours and 50 minutes and it just started pooring down rain! Chinga is going to be drenched. Why did I take off his water proof rug???

    Did you know that hair spray works great on making boots shine? Lets just hope they don't get wet. Perfectly clean Jods *Check*

    All I've got to remember is legs still at the trot and back staight while jumping and everything "should" be perfect. Also if I can get my diagonals right at the trot....thats my weakness.

    French Braid in his mane still needs to be done and his tail needs to be braided. Plus he still needs a *very* good body brush.

    You can tell I'm really excited.

    My lesson is now in 3 hours and 45 minutes....AND ITS STILL RAINING.

    Nooooooooo! I hate it when that happens! It happened two days in a row a few weeks ago ^^'

    It started pouring this morning, but luckily I'd kept the rugs on...

    Good luck with your lesson!

    Thanks. 3 hours to go. I'm about to go see him and try and dry him off. Ekkk! Looks like it might stop raining but somehow I find that hard to believe.

    I thought your lesson was inside. Or was that just inside an arena? I can't remember...lol

    In an indoor arena, but the problem was he was all wet so I had to dry him off.....

    Well we had a huge adventure at our lesson. Chinga decided today was the day he wanted to let me know that he needed shoes back on....thanks. So any way we are walking and trotting around and I announced "He feels funny."

    My instructor stops him and gives him a foot test. We find out he needs shoes again. We were ment to canter and jump as well but becauce he had a sore foot we decided not to. My instructor decided he would be fine to walk and trot and if he became worse she would tell me.

    We worked on exstending the trot and collecting it. Something he has never done before and we even worked out a square halt. I also know now how to tell if a horse is square without looking down and also what feet arn't square. My instructor didn't even have to explain how to do it I worked it out myself.

    We also did circles that were half the size of the arena and by the end of them he was doing them perfectly. My instructor told me he has a kind eye and is a great horse.

    The best bit (This made me laugh) We can walk in a staight line down the middle of the arena.

    I wish I could ride in a straight line down the middle of an arena

    No chance of that with the psycho mule of a horse I own :P

    Congrats on your successes today~ !

    Will he need shoes on all four feet? My horse got an abscess a ear something ago, and after he healed up he couldn't walk comfortably, but when we got the farrier out he said he only needs shoes on his front two feet. :) He's now comfortable on anything, sand, stone, etc. :) Just putting it out there since it's a bit nicer on the $$$ front, but if he needs all four feet, get them! :)

    He had all four feet before hand and he was sore in the front foot. So I guess all I can do is wait for the farrier to come out and see if he needs front or all four. We are pretty sure though he will just need front.

    I could tell your weakness is diagonals. You keep forgeting them or stuffing them up!! =) but you both did really well.it's ashame his feet went funny. I really wanted to see you jump and canter in the lesson. My legs aren't as bad as I thought they would be after the walk there and back.
