Glad you guys are liking the pics cause I have a bunch more from today!

18th February 2008

The rain stopped this afternoon and the sun was shining by the time I got out of work! So that means mega humid weather! I braved it and took Kai's bridle out and in my work clothes, whoops, rode him bareback again...

He was trotting a little better today

Ground was safe for canter in the middle of the arena

Weeee

Ick my hands

Canter other way


Not as balanced this way

more trot

19th February 2009

Went out early this morning to ride Kai. It was so humid after all this rain, so my face is bright red, even after a nice cold shower...
So back to Kai... I decided cause he is being a real pain in the butt to the right, cutting corners and flexing to the left, bleh, we did lots of work where he had to find the contact himself, I was not helping him at the trot today. He would find it fine on the left as usual and go about his business with his head and neck nice and low, but on the right he was a giraffe. He would get frustrated and pull at me a couple times and then finally on the long side he got it yay! So we did the long side and a half circle then quit with that. I guess he is just rather off balance to the right? So then we cantered and he was lovely as usual, then a little more trotting and he was good, keeping a nice soft contact with me, yay! And then we dodged the puddles and plopped over a couple jumps. I really wanted to work through our gymnastic but it was still puddly there and slippery so we had to make do, as you will see his knees are nothing spesh...

Giraffe to the right...

At least he was a giraffe with a nice forward trot

But he can do it on his own to the left...

the half circle to the right where he made it on his own!

so we canter

23rd February 2009

This afternoon was nice and breezy. Saddled Kai up to flat him. He started off so well, then we cantered and he decided to be Speedracer. So after we warmed up we did some more trotting to relax and chill. Then once he was calm I thought I would try asking for some flying changes but he decided cantering was too exciting again so we ended with lots and lots of nice forward trot to calm him and finish nicely. It was so humid he worked up such a foam of sweat, it was gross.

So some pics of our warm up...
Trotting

Hooray it didn't rain yesterday so riding today was tolerable in the mud. Saddled up Kai this morning, but while I was getting ready I started to feel really light headed and nauseous but I still went and rode. He was really great, wasn't fussing over the mud too much and we had a nice agreeable ride, yay. So mum came out and took photos, hooray...

Starting with a warm up trot...


Canter left


Change leads at trot

Canter right

He doesn't like mud, so weird canter

But back to pretty canter

So I snooze haha

Some more trot

Look at him flex, he tries

Stretch and maybe a yawn?

Staying calm over a pole, the only way he will is if I don;t have a contact with him, if I do he goes mental!

So our little grid is still sitting under water :( So we just have two jumps where the take off and landing are safe...
So first over this 70cm, felt great

Then 75cm

and then I do them again, straight after each other


Felt great today, so we stopped after those 4 jumps cause the ground is really slippery in places and I don't wanna dig the ground up too much. So overall I was very pleased with today. I just hope it doesn't rain tonight for the show tomorrow. And I can't find my black sporting boots for Kai, grrrr.
