I only got to see Chinga this morning and he got a lovely brush. I'm thinking about putting him on Muscle XL as I have heard it is good for topline building and muscle building -- anyone agree/disagree. I looked it up and there is a qoute from a website below,its also a cheaper muscle builder.
helps build the rump and strengthen the top-line (dressage, hacks, eventers and show jumpers).
I spoke to my trainer and organized a jumping lesson with her over the holidays, just have to pick a date. Before Christmas as after X-mas we are away at the farm, when I am at the farm I may not have internet acess, so I will write a diary and post it all in here when I get back :) I will also take tonnes of video and photos, or dad will. I am hoping to gallop him on the farm for the first time, I've never galloped him, only in hand galloped. I've never galloped before, apart from on Corby one day.
Then if all goes well we are going to race my aunty, as her two horses will be moving up there around the same time we are going up, although if we don't race we will just have lots of fun chilling out.
Well today was awsome! We did imaginary free stlye dressage to two songs, Party In The USA - Miley Cyrus and Realeas Me. I had to use the music on my phone. So it wasn't very loud. I need to get some more batteries for my stereo. He rode wonderfully, one thing that annoyed me was my leg -- it just didn't want to be helpful today. More dressage again, I don't want to work him overely hard as I will be away on school camp for a week. But hopefully my new splint boots will arrive while I'm away -- I'm bidding on a pair of black ones on ebay.
I decided that our colour was going to be Apple Green, so if you ever see a horse wearing Apple Green under the name Sir Success. That's us! I would like to do some more free style dressage tommorow. So I'm going to ask mum to pick up some more batteries for my stereo. I'm going to make a CD with some fun songs and then some "Training" songs. I'd like to make a test as well instead of just making it up on the spot like today.
What a wonderful ride today, mum brought the camara out and we did some jumping. Great fun, pony felt great and we had a great improvement in our landing. My feet were a bit off but they weren't shocking. My legs partly sucked because I have been jumping with long stirrups and the last time we jumped was over the tyre jump with Lisa, I promise to get video riding with Lisa on Saturday.
If anyone would like to see video fotage let me know, also if anyone is able to critique let me know.
His almost heeled completly, I'll try and grab some photos this afternoon. I'll upload the video once I add some from jumping on Saturday with Lisa. This afternoon we are doing some flat so I will get some photos for you guys :)
