Dear Diary,

Today I didn't get to ride. But I went down to Gumdale Pony Club and signed up, so now I'm a pony club member. I was meant to watch my instructor compete but because of the rain and the heat it was called off :( But I'm meant to be having a dressage lesson in the dressage arena at pony club this week.

Dear Diary,

I didn't ride today because of the rain, Chinga's legs swelled. Its happened before when he stands in the mud and rain for so long without moving. We had the vet out last time and told us just to exersize him, but that's impossible at the moment as his paddock is unsafe to ride and lunge in. Tomorow I'm helping my instructor so I cannot ride him, but in the morning I might get up early and take him for a bit of a road ride if the roads aren't slipperey. I had to bring him into the feed shed and give him the start of his dinner to dry him off, but from now on untill the weather has completely cleared up he will be in a rug the whole time. I got some photos of him standing in the water that I'll post, not sure if I got any of his legs. I'm hoping to find some sort of boots to put on him when he's out in the paddock to stop the rain/mud from getting on them. Or reducing it.

Dear Diary,

I helped out with the Jr group today, as it was Tuesday. They did 2-point over ground polls for the fist time ever, it was the best feeling watching their eyes light up and hearing "Maddie! Look what I did!". <3 The Jr group is just wonderful to help out with, although the weather was really bad, the rain sounded rediculously loud on the roof and the wind was horribly loud. So they couldn't use Corby because she can get very spookish in weather like that. Overall fun times, I spent my spare time grooming Corby and paiting her up

Dear Diary,

Good ride today, we rode bareback and played in the giant puddle! Awsome fun, he did really well I got on him bareback without him bucking or freaking out :) After that I left him tied up for ten minutes. He did really well didn't break the twine or paw once, might try and do half an hour tomorow. After that I gave him a brush and popped his rug on, gave him his dinner and headed home.

Dear Diary,

Good ride today. Played in giant puddles again, I got some good pictures and he was such a good boy, he didn't stop once because the puddle was going to eat him <3.Tryed to get him collected, ended up slipping in the mud so I then decided that walking was more appropriate. I practised 2 - point over ground polls and with no reins. I spread some ground polls around the place and tried to get Chinga to listen to my leg to purely go over them. He did really well.We did some leg yeilding, he tried so hard for me and when he didn't understand he would just stop and half look at me with the worlds most cutest face After that I tied him up for half an hour while I did my jobs, gave him a brush and put his JUTE on while he enjoyed his yummy dinner.

Dear Diary,

I rode with Jalah today, both horses were awesome! Pumpkin and Chinga both behaved well-ish. It was such a great ride, to actually be able to ride “The Boys” together without a lead rope involved. There was laughter and “Holey Crap” moments. When both horses slid, Pumpkins was minor although he threw in a buck afterwards, making it difficult for Jalah to stay on, although she awesomely did. Chinga slipped as well, his stomach and bum hit the ground. I came up with no reins and stirrups and still stayed on! We got them to walk and trot beside each other and had canter races J We are meant to be riding again next weekend. It was fun being able to ride together

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
