For those who don't know me visit my webpage www.pintopony.piczo.com to learn more or just enjoy reading about my adventures in the equine world.
Today was the second time I have ridden since I have been back in Australia. Mother and my sister had been taking the boys on trail rides while I was away (3 months in the USA) so they aren't complete lazy overweight ponies...
Kai was fantastic! He warmed up so well, his canter is surprisingly balanced and correct leads both ways straight away So we w/t/c to warm up then moved onto a few little jumps when he kinda went a little crazy but I still had the old man under control... Mother came out for pics after we warmed up so this is what she took...
Giving her a wave as we trot around nice and relaxed
First jump, 60cm nice and calm
Then Angel got incredibly jealous when I started to jump Kai so mum snapped these of her kicking up her heels in envy...
Second jump, 60cm just keeping it small today
Third jump for the day, 75cm
I got left behind, he was a little speedy at this one :S
Last jump to make up for the left behindness...nice one of our butts
And a little pose afterwards.
I was very happy with him.
Then onto Comanche. Unfortunately mother and father had to go to the airport so no one was around to take photos.
I put the dressage saddle on Com and he was wonderful, a little lazy as in slow but he he popped straight into trot from walk and canter from trot, again hitting his leads spot on. He was just incredibly slow. I think he was trying to canter in slow motion, I wish I had a video of how slow it was hehe. Anyway I was pretty happy with him and now I know I have to start working on his forwardness.
That's it for today.
