And all this happened yesterday...wow
Yesterday was good, bad and in between. My riding lesson was awful. I was on Sonnett and he was very sore and he refused to do anything. For half an hour I battled with him to get him to work, but in the end my riding instructor told me to dismount and she put me on her horse what is about 16-17hh. It was very high and scary, but he was a great horse. And the rest of my group was envious because they all want to try riding him but she never lets anyone ride him but her. But she let me ride him. She tried getting Sonnett to work, but gave up also. When I went back to the dismounting arena, the next group was already waiting for tehir lesson and they all ran up to me and were asking why I was riding my riding instructors horse. Then I heard one of the kids ask the riding instructor if she could ride him ^^
Bad news though. 2 ponies spilt their legs open during the night from some tin or something. They both had a bandage on their leg and we got to watch the vet do one of their legs. He drugged them first and they were practically falling over..My riding instructor was trying to keep them awake while the vet looked after the wound. They don't know how they hurt their legs, but my riding instructor took about 8 riders out into all the paddocks and arena's to try and find it..I don't know if they found it...
Good news(sorry this is so big) My mum says I can get a beginner horse in the future if I get a part time job and buy the horse myself. She just wants to know if I am dedicated and all....
