11th April 2009

Today I rode Comanche. He went so well. I def think we will be going to the dressage at the end of May. We started with lots of walking, bending etc then trotted and did lots of transitions and bending. Then we had a little canter cause the ground felt pretty solid under him. Did both ways and he didn't bolt or freak at anything, yay! We practiced some turn on the forehand and before that he had a really good medium trot happening, best in ages! I wish my other camera wasn't broken so I could have seen a video of it, felt soooo good. Mum was not in a good mood and came out for like 5 minutes and took a couple pics. So nothing spectacular...
Trotting



Lots of rubs cause he was soooo good.

Then taking a pic of the turn just isn't the same as a video but here we are going to the right...


Thats it for today, the other ponies have been working hard so have the day off.

Com's ride today and he was a jerk. He started super laz-ee. So I asked for a canter after lots of boring walk/trot transitions and he shied like a spaz at nothing and did something to my thigh muscle, gah. So I was super pissed and he was made to do another 20 minutes of medium trot. His random spooking is driving me crazy! Maybe he sees ghosts? Anyway, the spook did make him nice and energetic. So his pics...
Walk

Trot

Getting ready to shy during canter


Then me all pissed at him cause my thigh was killing me but I wanted him to keep cantering haha

Back to trot

Rained last night so the paddock was all wet again :( Saddled Comanche up and trashed the arena with him :( Lots of walk and a little trot today, He was super lazy but I think the slippery ground was bothering him.

Walking


Trotting


Hitting every pole, lazy butt


Funny pic of his tail as we are cooling out and coming down the mound.

So Com today, he had yesterday off and was nice and refreshed today. He was so wonderful, did about 15 minutes of walk warm up including leg yielding and turn on the forehand etc, then lots of trotting and walk transitions. We cantered a little today on the long sides and then a little around the short sides. We could actually use the full 60m by 20m today, yay for no rain! So mum came out as we were finishing up...

He was starting to get a little heavy in the hands :S




Cranky pants

He has had about a week off, maybe 6 days, gah, stupid rain and work getting in the way haha. Anyway, he was quite lazy but I had lots of time to spend warming him up at a walk. Then popped into trot and oh geez what a fat lazy blob. I got him trotting ok after about 1/2 hour of walk and halt to trot transitions etc. Mum came and took a few pics for me...

I can hardly tell if he is trotting or walking, maybe he is standing still haha

Looking like he is about to freak at nothing

But he sure is cute

Saddled up Com and walked him around a little. The ground was too slippery to risk trotting him as he slips on dewy grass even so I didn't want to take any risk.

He was being so unphotogenic hence his closed eyes and open mouth, what a beast

But I still luffs him

It was freezing cold and windy so was kinda nervous about riding Comanche but he surprised me and was rather good! This pony always does the opposite of what you expect :S So we warmed up w/t/c, he was lazy until we cantered then he perked up and then I got off and modified the grid for him and he got rather excited but was in control so happy with him

Plodding along like lazy blob he is

Wonky canter, felt better than it looks haha


Blobby trots

I think he is just going to fall over and die

Canter the other way and again felt better than it looked

Perkier trot

Then craptastic jumping, just two x rails with a stride inbetween

He had to stretch for it

Sloppy knees!

cont...
