Talking Back in the saddle with Kai

4th Feb 09

Landed in Sydney this morning after 30 hours of traveling from Warwick, phew, so exhausted but I stayed awake all day and survived the heat. It was 36C here today so I washed Kai off, he was so filthy. Mother tells me he has taken to a daily dunking in the stagnant waters of the storm water drain at the back of the paddock.
I was trying to hide my grossness here but it didn't work, ah well

Last hose off

And a pose hehe

I think he enjoyed the bath and he looks like a pony now, not something from the black lagoon.
Then when it started to cool as clouds came across I dragged my gear out to ride, saddled up but then the clouds promptly disapeared and then sun came back out to boil me, was only about 30C but so so humid.
Trying some leg yielding which he was great about

So some trot


He is so pretty

And right lead canter


Weeeeeee

Talking

More trot

And.......
Canter!

He is so smooth

Last trotting

Such a cutie

He always pokes his tongue out when we pose :P

He felt a little stiff but very willing and tried so hard I stretched him out afterwards and then jumped in the pool!!!

Thanks, my pony makes it easy to look good :)

So these pics are from Thursday when I washed Comanche but it didn't cool down in the afternoon so I didn't ride :( It is crazy hot here!

He was so playful and wanted to suck on the hose end

Acting like he hated it but he loves it!
