Well I'm writting this at school so I wont go into much detail but I thought I'd let you all know how our lesson went on Saturday.
Friday afternoon: Boo got the afternoon off riding, and managed to throw a shoe...nice. So we couln't ride in our lesson. I was upset, because I'd put alot of work into getting him ready for our lesson. But as long as my boo was okay, so was I. Then we rung the farrier to book him for the next time he could come out. I knew the chances of him coming out Friday or Saturday morning were just about impossible. So I was just hanging on the lounge while mum rang, usually if it was about horses I would pick up the other phone and listen. Mum then told me the farrier could come out SATURDAY MORNING before our lesson! I was so happy.
Saturday morning: We had the farrier booked for 8:30 and our lesson was at 1:45pm so we had plenty of time. I arrived at 6:30 to feed Boo and give him a really good brush before our lesson. At 8:30 the farrier came and put his shoe back on. Drama over. Or was it?
Then I cleaned his saddle and bridle after brushing him for about 4 hours all up. I was excited not nervous!
We arrived at the lesson before all the other riders, so Chinga could just adjust to everything. So he was talking to Billy (one of my instructors ponies) over the fence. They were so cute together.
Then all the other riders arrived and they didn't know I was bringing Chinga they all cuddled him and still didn't know he was mine and they were like to my instructor can we ride the new horse? I laughed and gave boo a hug he was coping really well.
Then we started riding, walking around was fine and then the start of trotting.
((Sorry got to go bell rung! I will post the rest later!))
