I felt bad for Dukey today. We went to the arena at like noon when it was like 100 out and VERY humid. My trainer did a practice show... and we cantered FOREVER! Which made me mad cus he told me only to canter less than one lap, but then he mad me do like 5 in a row (a lap is the outside of the big arena, to clarify) and this happened more than once

Then we stopped when he was done with the mini show, i got a bottle of water and drank some, but the rest i poured on duke's poll to cool him off. After the whole thing was done I hosed him off, because at that point I was more worried about the horse's health and not about what my trainer was thinking. Sorry, if that's rude, but I'm not risky someone else's horse for something that dumb.

But the poor horse didn't even get breakfast and hadn't had a drink since before 9 o'clock and we finally put him away at like 2!

Sorry, rant over.....
