So yesterday afternoon we rode, interesting ride. We played with walking aroud for about half an hour, getting him to listen to leg really well. Then we did our usual trot, canter and set up a few jumps. He was shocking! Tried to throw me over one jump and then after all the other jumps he decided it was fun to turn and stop. After Them. So, back to ground polls and baby jumps for a while. I think he was just happy to be back jumping, when he bucked because it was like a buck of excitment. Today, we are doing some bending exersizes, ground polls and some other things to get him really listening to me.
I might try setting up some ground polls in a circle and getting him to try and hit the same place every singal time. I will try and get someone to come out take some photos.
Another reason he might of been playing up with jumping, was because afterwards he was really chewing at his bit and had he's head really low, his teeth are fine. But I jumped off took his bit out and put it back in, rode on and he was fine, I always check his bit though :S
Anyway, hoping for a better ride today.
