The Amazing Adventures of Alex and Sary!

Ok, so there not that amazing. I've finally decided to start a journal about moi and my pony Sary.

14-5-07
So this morning i went to my agistment place which i would say is about 1000 acres (i'm not really that sure) but well it's pretty darn big! We have 3 arenas, a roundyard, some laneways and some jumps/poles that we use to ride in. We also have a fair few trails with a little bit of a cross country course- although they are mostly logs. You can either agist in a public paddock a private paddock or single private paddocks. All of the singles have 3 sided sheds- but unfortunately we don't have any stables. Sary has a single and it's one of the biggest he also has a lovely big tree for shade.

Anyways onto this morning, i rode Sary for about 1/2 an hour maybe alittle less, coz i've bben so busy lately i havn't been able to ride him(only jumped on bareback for 10 mins). Anyway i started off long nd low to stretch his back muscles, then all the usual walk, trot, canter change rein stuff. And then i worked on leg yield which Sary completely gets it to the right but he always gets confused to the left :P Um then we worked on travers which he did really well and i was so happy with him. Then i unsaddled picked up poo in his paddock and washed his mane, tail and legs. I'm going to go to ponyclub tomorrow so it should be fun- Sary will enjoy going somewhere different for a change. Anyway this is kind of really long and boring so i applause anyone who read all of it! I'll try to be alittle more interesting next time!

This is sary eating in the shade of his tree- one of his fave past times!



Oh yeah i just got a kitten last wek and she's really cute- she's a tonkinese but she meows alot!

I'm getting some pics of her (Mia) soon............

Yesterday i went to pony club, in the morning we did some mounted games- the balloon race( where you have to pop baloons using a stick with a pin on the nd you then pass the stick to the next person), We did a rope race which i'm not good at explaining, and we did 5 flag (as the name suggests there are 5 flags each rider has a flag which you have to put in the cone, then on the way back thers another cone which you have to get the flag out of and pass it to the next team member, oh there are 4 members to a team). So our team wasn't the best but it was fun. We then did troop or whistle drill, then a little flatwork & then lunch. After lunch we did rescue rlay which is a showjumping game that's heaps fun. & apple bobbing my helmet got soaked and Sary wanted to at the apples! :P

So today i took Sary to be full body clipped- a friend floated him cause mum had to work and they wer also going to get their horse clipped. So Sary has to be mildly sedated because he had a really bad experience with clippers. All went well and he's now naked! hehe- he has a tonne of rugs and wears paddock boots now!
Anyways thats all for now........................

So yesterday i had a dressage comp, i just did prelim tests cause Sary hasn't been getting proper work. i rode him once in the past week and half for only twenty mins, it's mainly due to the amount of rain we've been having which is needed but annoying. So i got a 5th and a 6th but my percentages were 62.8% and 65% respectively. I'm really happy with my scores and i think my comments were pretty good, anyways gotta go feed Sary! Bye

I took Sary on a trail ride yestrday and while w were out there i did a bit of work on leg yielding. We did a couple of jumps and had a good gallop. I think we both neded it as we are a little stale from training. Hopefully he will be refreshed when i ride tomorrow

On Saturday when i rode Sary i noticed he was stiff and not as supple as he has been lately, so we called th chiropracter. And he came yesterday he was a little tight in his lumbar vertbrae but nothing major he just needed a little tweaking and a couple days rest and we will be back to work Otherwise not much has happened.
