    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


    Change direction at trot

    Ick my hands

    Canter other way

    Not as balanced this way

    More trot

    And a break

    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

        02-18-2009, 08:07 PM

    And the other way around

    I love when it looks like we are just standing on one foot haha

    Ok now this is about 70cm, two pics in sequence
    Where is my contact and icky knees

    My legs are so weak... :(

    This one is 75cm and again with my contact and Kai's knees...

    I am so weak

    Ok that's it for today. He jumped really well, he didn't touch the poles, his legs are just gross and I can't work on our gymnastic, whah!!!

    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...

    And canter left

    Funny one

    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.
