Today during my lesson , my new trainer (yes I finally started working with a trainer again) said that she thinks that Cinny has 2 distinct personalities and it's a toss up which one he wakes up as each morning.
Personality #1 is Cinematic Debut the dressage pony, ready to go to work and learn some new way to use his body or have a working cruise down the trails practicing our leg yields and bends along the river.
Personality #2 is Descendant of Man O War great racehorse, he only has one speed....go very very fast.
Today he woke up with personality #2 so instead of working on my stretchy trotty circles and my single loop serpentines during my lesson, we worked on canter circles for the entire hour. Cinny seems very pleased that for once we have a trainer that "gets" him. When we were done I turned him out to roll, but instead of rolling, he galloped for another 15 minutes on his own.... maybe he should be an endurance horse instead of a dressage horse.
I just hope that on show day I wake up to Cinematic Debut or the day is going to be a real live roller coaster :)
Anybody else think their horse has Multiple Personalities?
