Yeah, I don't have a math class until 5:30 pm tonight
So, usually I spend the day cleaning, I found out that, since I don't qualify for Work Study at my school, the Equestrian Center can't hire me, and if they did, it would so less work, it wouldn't be worth it....
On a good note, yesterday, I rode in an English saddle for the very first time! It was really exciting. This one girl there, who is supposed to be one of our 'teachers' (everyone there is Western riders) was all like, "Who wants to ride in an English saddle?" I raised my hand,and she was like "Why? They are hard to keep balance."
I replied, "I know. I have good balance." I don't know why she was making a big deal of it. The supervisor said I could, she placed the people in 'charge' of our class. Anyway, the girl frowned at me and she said, "You know you have to get up a different way?"
I nodded, and the boy behind me said, "I can leg her up." Well, she got all mad and headed to the arena on her own horse. The boy helped me up in the saddle. I will post pictures as soon as my boyfriend gets them off my phone for me. But anyway, it wasn't hard to keep balance at all! It was actually really fun, and I think a smoother ride.
Then, I went over to the stables and saw Bo. He was being a butt! But the main horse trainer lunged him in the big round pen as he finally
moved a colt he was working with. I was glad Bo acted up for him too (just too prove it wasn't me, it was the horse) Bo was just plain rude! When he didn't get to go his way, he would turn and buck, kick out, not be nice. I wanted to use a whip for a while now, but, the trainer always said 'no'. Well, after he saw how Bo was behaving, he said he would help me more, and use a whip. Yes! Some discipline! After Bo showed submission (which was funny becuase it was as soon as I brought out a whip) we saddled him, and the trainer rode him. Then I did. It was the best ride ever!!! But the trainer said next time, when Bo began bucking/kicking like that we would use the whip as a 'No' because that is dangerous and rude.
My boyfriend ALMOST has the pictures ready! Good thing too, as, I am running out of things to say at the moment..... Yay! Here is one:
