Well, today isn't over, but the horsey stuff (the stuff you guys care about) pretty much is. I rode Duke today and he did really good especially considering that he had like 3 days off from riding.

Then I decided to try and pull stuff with him like I would have to in trail. He was fine going forward. I drug that around for a long time and walked and even trotted, but when I tried to pull it going backwards he freaked out. So I started from square one and rubbed in on him and the rope. and then i backed him on the ground while pulling the thing and everything. He could care less by the time I was done, but when I was up on him and tried he freaked out again. So i did work where he just stood there and I rubbed the rope on him and flicked it over his head and pulled the tires by myself. I just kept doing that until he didn't care and then I pulled it again and he didn't care.

Then I put him away and Mr. Trainer was nice enough to give him a ride to the other barn. I tried to pay him for gas money, but he wouldn't take it :roll: Any way, if I choose to that was the last binding string that broke and I don't HAVE to stick around him anymore.

Now I have to work on my car, that oh so conveniently broke down yesterday and get my stuff all polished up for the show. Oh yeah, and pack for my stay in town for the fair. AND clean my Grandparent's apartment. So, sorry all if I don't get on for awhile. After fair I'm going on vacation!
