We had more rain last night so the arena was worse than yesterday. Dad trimmed Kai's back feet, he was perfect for him. Rode Comanche. He was a pain in the butt. He hates mud and we had the centre of the arena to work in, but one side was muddy. He was acting soooo lazy, a step backward from when I last rode him, but I blame the mud cause he really hates it. We just trotted, lots. He didn't slip anywhere but I didn't want to risk a canter in the mud with his track record.
So we started with a walk around the paddock through puddles then came into the arena
And we trot
So exhausted after 20 minutes of walk trot, he tires me out
So now lets pray no more rain until next week!!!
