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.

Starting early is an advantage, I always wished if I had started riding early as I really enjoyed all the time I have been riding despite my current injury, I still have the passion and looking forward to be back on my horse.

Best of luck for your kid, looking forward to see some of her videos soon :)

I got an email this morning from her instructor telling me how cute it was because she's never had a kid this young doing ground work. She did use the smallest horse on the farm, but she said it looked like her advanced kids in miniature. She said my daughter is in training to be the next barn girl now because she'll do anything on the farm to be out there.

Next time I will certainly have my camera on me to take pictures or video. The instructor said that the horse she usually rides hasn't had a rider doing ground work for a few years so he'll have to have a refresher course in it, but she's actually going to do that refresher with my daughter instead of one of her older girls. She figured that my daughter and her coudl do it in a couple of private lessons.

I really wish I had been there. Stupid work.
