    Hey Me - Again no ones replied :P

    So its been awhile since I've posted, we ran barrels the other day. He rode wonderfully. Today we had a mishab, he rode wonderfully all afternoon so while I was cooling him down then he threw the biggest bucking fit ever, and I came off onto a barrel.

    Oh no! I hope you didnt get hurt.. at least not too bad anyways.
    Do you know why he started bucking? Something spook him?
    Did he stop once you hit the barrel?

    Yeah he did, I worked out what happened that afternoon. He had been bitten by two bugs under the saddle, I always check but you could not feel or see the marks before hand. Until the saddle rubbed them and finally at the end he just couldn't stand them.

    Oh yes he was, he had a bath today and is now all soft and cuddly :) I went to see Paranormal Activity and you have to be 13 to get in - I'm 13 in 3 months. So they said I was 13 - A girls got to do a few bad things in her life. The guy didn't ask for our Studant Id but he was like how old are you girls and my sister goes 14, 13, 14. As Kat and Tay are both 14 and then I just cracked up laughing. Th guy was like okay.

    Really great/scary movie and we all loved it. I can't wait till getting up at 5 Am in the morning and riding Chinga. Now that his bites are gone :)

    Dear Diary,

    This could end up being quite a long post. But here goes, first off the main event that has happened. The ponies left, that's a good and bad thing, Merlin was fun to work with and I was breaking him in. But its good because I hated Ben. The grass after one day has grown back slightly, barely anything more. But enough to notice. Chinga has been wonderful today and today we are doing a mini jumping course, that shall be fun. I'm better after my fall, its been awhile since I've had a "flying dismount". His looking great as well, there are going to be some photos at the end of this post. Um.. . He had a bath on Sunday, and had heaps of fun playing with the bubbles :)

    I'm meant to be getting my gates next week. So I'll be able to set up a round pen and arena. That will be great for baby as I need to practise keeping him "on the wall" and that can be difficult without walls. Lol.

    I'm hoping on starting Show Jumping in the compition world and maybe even some Dressage. My ultimate goal is Eventing.

    Good Morning,

    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.

    Maddie.

    Hey,

    So I'm typing this with one hand, as the other one is holding an ice pack just above my eye. Today Chinga was out in his paddock and he was playing with me, galloping around and I was watching him. So he got quite close so I said "Watch It" in a firm voice, he realized he was to close and spun back around so quickly that it was like a rear and kneed me in the face. Now I have a huge bump just above my eye. If anyone would like pictures, let me know.

    We didn't ride today, as his been extremly tired, so I've had him on rest for the past two days, no more rest for him. Its gone to his head,

    Maddie,
