Oh that sounds like a quick little pony then. I just adopted a 16.3 hand thoroughbred, Bayberry, this past saturday from a rescue and he's not speedy, but he takes up ground! He has about a 12-13 foot stride at the canter. We're taking him to a hunter/jumper show this sunday and doing 2 foot 6 inches. Hopefully he'll be ready. He doesnt like the little jumps but he's never ever been to a show, besides his harness racing when he was a baby. Hopefully he'll be good!

Your two ponies though look very good at jumping though, they seem to love what they do!!

Rode Comanche before work today. Just flatted him for about 1/2 an hour. He was pretty good, kind of lazy but I had a good time. Just really tired now but I will post some pics that my mum snapped.



More canter

More trot, we worked alot on a good working trot

Trot to walk transition

^^ Thanks

Went to jump club today info and pics here

Then afterwards my friend came out and gave Com a massage. He really loved it and behaved so well. He really surprised me because he has issues about peopl touching his back and legs but he behaved perfectly for the massage

But my thoughts where confirmed about hit off hind leg. He is stepping a little odd on it, not making him lame or in pain but going to score us low in the trot for dressage :S

Hopefully I can flat Com tomorrow then get mum to come with me to take both boys on a trail. I am going to a clients place to ride a pony tomorrow, I hope it is a good pony :S

Today mother and I took the boys on a short trail ride. We trotted afew km's into the bush then walked back. They were both really nice and relaxed, Kai I had on a loooooooose rein the whole time. I hope he wasn't too stiff from yesterday because he was dragging his back toes while trotting and he never does that!!!

Then when we got back I did about 20 minutes of flat bareback with Com, lots of canter He was a little lazy at first but soon got some energy into it and it was a lot of fun. Mother was busy so no photos :(

Then while mother had a student for a lesson I rode Angel bareback. She was a little spooky out the back trail so I just walked next to her then got back on and we went around the round yard a few times changing direction and she was great, no stopping until she was told, yay!

And hopefully tomorrow mother and I will trailer the boys so a park for a trail.

This morning I was up bright and early to do some serious flat work with Com. Our dressage day is fast approaching, this Saturday!!! So we worked on walk/trot transitions and canter on straight lines. His w/t/c warm up was very nice. No pics, mum was busy.

Then mum and I packed the car and trailer drove to Scheyville National Park and went trail riding with the boys. It was a perfect day for it and you can read and see pics here, I am too lazy to post all over again

Any other Sydneysiders here? Got any cool trail rides in the area???

Kai had the day off today and I had a lesson with Com. The girl who rode did really well with trotting but had a little trouble getting him into canter but once he was there he was great for her. She also did some trot poles to a cross rail and Com stayed nice and calm.

So after the lesson I jumped on him bareback to canter him a little more. And mum got some pics for me...

Eeep I can't believe there is 2 days until my dressage tests! Went to a clients place and rode their pony. I lunged her a little first she did really well, hasn't been ridden for months, she has no topline so needs a bit of work.

Then mum and I stopped off at the saddlery at bought Comanche for a much needed new bridle. Decided to get a full instead of a cob.

So we got home and I tried it on him and it fit, yay. So we did w/t/c warm up then worked over trotting poles then getting a few extended strides on the long sides of the arena. Then a few square halts.
