Yes, Foxhunter, your stories are great!
Sorry about all the rain....my son in law is Irish born, grew up in Wales, and he and my daughter lived in London, and then Cornwall for 2 years after first married. When he moved here, he said he was never going back, loves our weather here, even the snow!
Will you dry up for the summer, or is it wet then too?
Susan looks like you had a blast! I haven't been to a rodeo in so long, but I do love them!
Been working with Kes over the last few days. Two nights ago hubby stayed with the kiddos and I headed to the barn. I was the only one there and it was lovely, quiet and I had the whole place to myself. Rode in a double and she did great. She was light in my hands, listened really well and we worked for about an hour. Even got quite a bit of cantering in.
Then today, back working with our trainer, we tried yet another bit for dressage. This time the Boucher. She did better in it, had some time when she was light in the bit and not charging. Lots of circles to keep her tempo, and a few times one rein stops into the wall to get her to listen, but we ended on a good note of a medium trot with very little contact. This is a long road we're on I'm afraid. Trainer thinks perhaps next spring we'll be dressage ready in a snaffle. If only I could skip three levels and just ride in a double LOL all would be grand!
