3rd lesson of the year

We are still looking kind of yucky, but we are getting better. It was like 89 degrees (F) out and we started in the indoor where it was cooler and then went outside after it cooled down a bit. He was surprisingly really good. The only real problem we had yesterday was picking up his right lead again, but we got him to do it so yay!
And sorry he is so dirty I have been hosing him off after I ride because he is so sweaty and then he rolls and gets all dirty and gross haha
Here he is being naughty not picking up his lead (And right now we aren't worrying about where his head is until he picks up his lead) (Need to pick our battles with him haha)

And he did pick up his lead, but I had to run him into a tight circle and he figured out what I want, he just wasn't picking it up to my cue.... =/

Well if he was on the correct lead this one would be my favourite


He looks relaxed in his interesting canter, lol at least that's what I think it is (I am not so good at telling gaits from pictures yet)

Palomino and La Volpe- Thank you very much! We have improved quite a bit! I am very proud of him. I Also think he is quite a handsome guy!

I went and rode yesterday and it only took like 15 mins before he would pick up his lead, I know it isn't great but it is better than taking 45 mins or just not picking it up.
And we have our first show on wednesday in 2 years!
