Sorry I haven't written. Interenet and homework are not friends
. He's been quite good, went a little spazz the other day. He spoked threw the usual OMG its gonna eat me bucking fit and then bolted, then after I managed to stop him he was all nothings wrong. That was fun, he's such a twit. I found out that in my lesson with Sue today we might be jumping, I would prefer flat work. But the rest of the group never jumps. So I'll just get over it
. Pony club muster tomorow then I'm heading to a show to watch my instructor compete on her horse Rusty. Of course the camara will be coming.
His been a good ride apart from that, I've been working on gaits alot still, slow improvements. But he's getting there, I got him to canter down the "Slope" so that was good usually he skips back into a really fast unbalanced trot. He's lunging has been going really well, hopefully I can introduce some loose side reins and a roller next weekend. If I get the time to go to the tack shop because I should be showing in my first and last 12 and Under Show Jumping Class before I turn 13! His ground manners have been going well, although refused to stand this morning when I took his rug off, so I made him back up, walk forward and circle before making him stand still to continue taking his rug off. He behaved for me after that, tried to shove past mum once. Althought I think he thought the gap was bigger then it was. He was very sooky for it. I'm hoping to do some tying up and float loading practise today, his little act at Cross Country was not acceptable, so now he can do boring loading and unloading practise. Although hopefully he was just tired and grumpy and he will be an angle to load like usual
Tying up because he always unties himself in the arena, so we need to work on that. Anyway, I'm off to my lesson. I'll let you know how it goes, hopefully the video camara will come.
