Sorry I havent writen in a while. I've been really busy.
Yesterday I tried out my new jumps with Trooper. I tried it at 2ft but he gave a really bad refusal at it, the kind of refusal that you know there not ready to do what yor asking, ones where you know if you keep pushing them the only place youll end up is on the ground. So I put it at the 18" hole, but the pole made it 21". Tomorow I might make an X that is 2ft in the middle because he seems to be more comfortable with crossrails.
Today a friend trailered her horse over to ride with Trooper and I, we are getting ready for a 17km trail ride this Saturday, Im not forsure that Im going yet, it all depends on how he acts on Thursday (were taking him to another friends house who has cows and other scarry things) The ride today didnt start out great he wasnt willing to walk by my friends trailor, and we went behind them on the road and he started rearing, so we tried him in the front, and he was as happy as can be. Apparently he wants to be the leader! We also practised puting on/getting off the trailor, wich went quite well. Overall I think he did well toay, considering he lives a very sheltered life and hasnt been amungst other horses in almost a year!
Well Ill update you tomorow if I have time!
