    Dear Journal...

    JUST when I thought my problems were over...

    So tonight while riding with my friend Nicole I had a lil incident...We rode really light, just walk trot stuff. So at the very end I decided that I would canter a half a round, so we were doing fine, my hands were down trying to get him to have a headset. So in this moment of vunerability he crow hops. Nothing like he's done before, and by the end of it I was on his neck. Lovley. So I kept him moving (working trot/walk) as punishment and put him in his stall. Our epic adventure continues tomorrow at lessons...

    Dear Journal...

    So today was our last lesson of 2009. Now we are on Winter Break. But luckily my instructor had us canter, and of course he pulled his stunt. But she walked me through it, and we stuck too it. I kept him going and he did perfect. Im trying a new bit until show season, trying to get him to calm himself. This one has shanks. Havent used those before! And when I canter, my hands are practilly out in front of me directly!! Hehe ohh Honor :) well I guess until next time, yours truley

    Lol I've never used shanks on Honor before. Like even when I used him in Sarahs lessons. I've used them on other horses though...

    Same here- never used shanks on Rainy. She's wasn't too happy that she couldn't pull quite as hard. :)

    Dear Journal...

    So I lunged yesterday at the trot, and he was delightful :) I didnt canter, hoping to end on a good note. Today I rode, only walk-trot. I'm only going to canter sparingly. He was very good, this training bit is getting him into a headset easier, until my legs strengthen up at least, or he just learns. Well that's about it for today :) I love my Honor. Christmas party tomorrow!! Woo par-tay...I don't know what just got into me there.
