Well I haven't ridden a lot lately, I have been a bit busy. Today I had another lesson. I rode Sammy while my trainer rode Apache during my lesson. First I had a go at lunging Sammy and he went fairly well. Then my trainer lunged him for awhile and he chucked a few hissy fits but otherwise went very well. Then while I held Sam and checked his tack, my trainer lunged Apache. He was good at a walk but did a few bucks and tried to be intimidating to avoid having to trot but trottted eventually. After lunging we both got on and walked around a bit to see how the two would act when ridden together. They were pretty good except Sammy kept practically trying to walk on on top of Apache. I had to keep making him move over. He didn't even learn his lesson when Apache went to bite him. They were pretty good, Apache was suprisingly well mannered about it. We did a lot of walking and trotting. Sam was soft and didn't brace against me once though he did try to rush a little. My trainer got me to work on some sitting trot. Now that took a lot of work. When Sam was keeping a steady pace my trainer said I was doing very well. When I got off later I nearly fell over because my legs were like jelly. My thighs and tummy lol were aching a lot. Anyway my trainer also said Apache was quite good if a little lazy about going. She said he was pretty easy to get going except for his one hissy fit down near our dam. We were just about to go around the dam when he started to back up and wouldn't go forward then did a little rear then a little pigroot. He soon found out this wasn't going to scare her and it just meant harder work then going forward so he walked on. He was good for the last few minutes of our ride and we will see how he goes next time. I am very happy about today's lesson.
