Eve's been doing really well lately, with her long reining, learning to pull a tire, and riding. Today was a bit of an off day...it was windy and she got it in her head that there WAS a horse-eating monster in the trees behind us and trotting away was the solution! She was very alert and nervous today in the paddock so I kept it to a walk, practised halts and did alot of serpentines. In the end though it was a matter of finding a good place to end the session and start again tomorrow. Between the wind and her having a "baby day", I wasn't going to fight with her over it! I know I wasn't letting her win anything by having a short ride today, so I'm not too worried about how she'll do tomorrow. Anyway, onto some pictures!
ZOMG! It'll get us!
Stepping out nice, but you can tell how alert she was!
She relaxed a little bit though - fav pic from the day!
Another ZOMG moment...
Just trying to keep a consistant walk!
Again, boogie man in the trees!
She refused to move so we did a circle and carried on!
Much nicer walk
Asking for whoa
Seriously, she grew...can't even see me behind her anymore!
Oh there I am!
