Hi guys,

Not such a great ride today. I finally trusted him enough to let the girl there ride him, he played up with his head high and just being a total pain -- he just wasn't use to it, she wasn't the best rider eaither. So then I hopped back on, held his head high. Was a pain to move, so I got a good trot out of him and got somewhere, so we did some walking. I walked him up the trail.

Next thing, spins. Runs to the other end, runs back up and then finally slows down enough for me to pull him up. I figured he was just testing me. So he got 20 more minutes of trotting in circles and was pefect for the rest of the time.

Oh well. Horses are just like that sometimes. They get away with one thing and then they see what they can do next. Good on ya for making him do it right.
Haha, I get to go to Armidale in the holidays. Haven't been there in ages.
I hope you and Chinga have lots of fun on the farm, I wanna see lots of pictures.

Sorry I didn't write yesterday. I didn't take Chinga to the lesson or get to ride with Lisa as Lisa hurt her knee. So I rode Chinga bareback late in the afternoon. We did some cantering and had alot of fun. Then we just chilled out and walked around up on the trails. In the lesson I rode Billy we cantered alll the courses and won 2 of three in indiviuals and 2 of three in teams. Billy and I were flying.

Today I got up early and rode, I wasn't going to as it was really hot but I won't get to ride for a week as I am going away on school camp. We rode great, did halt to trot/canter. He was wonderful, I got some good video. I can't upload the video today, so I will upload it when I get back. This will probs be my last entery till I get back.

Talk to you soon,

No one rode Chinga, mum was going to ride him while I was away. But his been a bit bonkers. I have to hop on him this afternoon. I will lunge him first, he hasn't had grain while I'm away so that's less energy :) I was going to hop on him Friday afternoon, but he was put out to graze in the big paddock - that he was happy with and I was to tired to ride. Plus I wanted to be very awake, as I know his going to be cazy. I should upload the video of him laying down and eating at the same time.

Dear Diary.

Today, I didn't ride. It was just to hot, I also didn't have time. But he is going to have a good long, hard ride tommorow. Lisa still isn't feeling well, so we couldn't ride with her eaither. I started cleaning out the corral, I made a tiny bit of progress, I basically have to re-build it. We have to pick the yards up from the farm sometime soon. I got my new black splint boots as well, they are very pretty :) I haven't used them yet - on the topic of boots, I've got to try him in his float boots again. Last time he hated them, so I have to try him again with them as I will be floating him 8-9 hours to the farm. Exactly 30 days till we go to the farm :) My instructor is planning on selling some of her jump wings (she has around 30 wings she is going to sell) so I'm going to see how much she is selling them for and then if they are at a good price, I will take them.

We are also having a show jumping, dressage and cross country lesson with my trainer over the holidays and hopefully a dressage lesson with my friend who is a top dressage rider.
