I usually do circles as a warm-up first, then we usually just ride around in the field... I just don't want him to get bored, especially since he has free-roam of the field when I'm not riding him... /:
I feel like the fact he does isn't a good thing? Should I change that..?
Have fun at camp!
Congrats on the grades!
Good luck with the saddle!
So, today was a lot of fun! I helped out with the therapeutic (Special education) lessons and then stayed after to hang out with my friends. I ended up taking my favorite little pony, Luna, out and gave her a bath and cleaned her udders, which was a lot of fun since it was such a hot day and she really needed it.
It's kind of odd how she is my favorite horse on the whole farm of 38 horses. She is short, butt high, and pretty ugly/without a cute face. She's too short for me to ride regularly, the only real good things she has going for her is that she is dead broke and very unspooky. She also has navicular (She's 18) and can currently only do walk/trot lessons. However, for some reason I just really like her.
My friend also tried to teach me how to lunge which I've been wanting to learn for a long time, but haven't gotten the chance to. We tried to do it with the littlest shetland pony we have but he is terrible at it and constantly tries to turn in no matter how many times you use the crop/lunge whip... So it didn't work out very well. Tomorrow they're going to teach me how to clean/condition tack!
Here's a picture of Luna all shiny. She is actually black just extremely sunbleached.

congratulations on the horse!! (: Welcome to the forum.
Well, I was hoping to get my hands on a M Tolouse premia...rode in it once and fell in love with it. My saddle fits my horse just fine though so I have to save up a lot of money before I can buy it! I want a Pessoa realllllly badly though.
Hey guys do you mind if I join this thread? :)
About me: I'm 16, I live in Florida and I have a passion for horses. I volunteer at a local ranch that is literally right by my house. I currently have my own horse and i'm working on training him and getting some more weight into him. IMG_20130507_191913.jpg 20130604_162233.jpg
He is a 10 year old quarter horse gelding, and I mostly trail ride him and on Tuesdays I go and train him.
