Daughter had her first ground work lesson
I had a meeting and had to have my aunt take her to her lesson. I'm so jealous that I missed it! She said it was awesome. She didn't use her usual lesson horse because it has been really cruddy for a couple of days and he was a mess, so she used the POA she started on. She had an hour of ground work and hasn't stopped bouncing and talking about it since. The timing on this is perfect because she turns 8 in 2 weeks and we got her the C.A. kid's ground work set for her birthday. She picked the color but she doesn't know it yet.
I can't wait for her birthday now. She's addicted, and her usual lesson horse is trained at a really high level of WP but he hasn't had to work at the level for a long time because his personalities suits beginners. He's going to have his work cut out for him this summer. She said kids usually ride him until they get their own horse, but kids don't start as early as my daughter did, so he's going to be forced to work a little harder now. I so wish I had skipped my meeting and taken pictures instead.
