Rode Kai today. Mum wanted to see how he would go on the lunge for new students and of course he was perfect. I was the student haha. I should have taken my stirrups off, maybe tomorrow. So after that I took him out the back into the big arena and did some w/t/c and he was perfect and I felt like popping him over a couple fences. So seeing as my "grid" area still has a huge puddle in it we just did a couple, so I will show the pics now...
On the lunge trotting
I am such a dork
That's is for lunge pics, dad had to go back to work.
Then no pics of our flatwork, mum was cleaning poop up haha, so straight into jumping pics...
Start with a widdle cross rail and he is a spaz and jumps weirdly.
He was pretty hyped so I just took him out to do this 70cm then loop around to the 105cm
He was very excited first time around so we do it again to see if we can be a little more calm and collected...
Then a little 75cm into the arena to a 105cm
So I made the 105cm a little wider, never tried this before but we are feeling brave so again the 75cm then the wider 105cm
He was a little hesitant but I pushed him over
What a good boy he was! So we stopped there, not a lot today over fences but I want to get some grids up and practice horse distances for the show, so hopefully next week the ground will be dry enough and we will do some real over fences work!
One last pic to end...
