Last night was very frustrating for me. Art was helping me for a good hour or two. He explained to me that Leroy is thinking left when I am going right and right when I am going left. Once reason who he "charges" on a straight away. I told me I need to think ahead of him and redirect him before he starts pulling out of the circle. We worked alot on control, redirecting, and getting his mind where it needs to be. I was getting pretty frustrated because I felt like Leroys problems were being caused by me.
Today Leroy was alot better. I actually had to move him forward because he kept breaking. But in my mind I should get him right back into the lope once he breaks to teach him to keep going. BUT Art had other ideas, he wanted me to gain control of him once he breaks. Trot around and calm him down, re-collect, and lope of once again. Which in the end, it made sense. He's not being a bad horse by breaking he just doesnt understand. We have been struggling with our left lead quite alot. But he'll get it eventually. We have a riding test tuesday on straight lines and leads.
Im going to the drag strip with Cody and his family this weekend. His family is really big into drag racing. We are dating now
, I really like him. He is nothing what I expected. All my friends love him, he super supportive, he's hilarious, an his family is great. Im only the 3rd girl he has ever brought home, an the first girl in over 3 years. He told me he wanted to bring home a girl to impress his parents, that's meeeee. =DD I feel pretty dang special. That's about it for now, more monday. Energy
