Ok I haven't been on for a few days. Well today I had another riding lesson. They just seem to fly, I have a lot of fun. My trainer lunged Apache before we got on and he was being a (hmm nice word) booga. He kept rearing and bucking/ kicking out after he did one full circle she stopped on the good note. We then got on for our ride. Sammy was very excited and forward for the whole ride. Apache was quite the opposite. Sammy kept trying to break into a trot if we were walking or a canter if we were trotting. He was listening but only just he seemed to be having one of his hypo days. He did quite well except for trying to break gait. This stopped when I got him to keep the gait up for more then a couple of strides then he wanted to slow hehe.
Apache on the other hand was being a right booga for the first half of the ride. Almost every couple of strides he was trying my trainer out to see if he could get out of it. Pigrooted quite a bit, reared (small ones) a couple of times and I think he just bucked a couple of times. He soon realised she didn't care it just meant more work so he stopped trying it. She even cantered him around quite a bit. She commented that he has a very nice slow big strided rocking horse canter. Apparently it is much nicer then his trot haha. I wouldn't know because when I rode him I never got him past a trot. This is making me want to ride him much more now. I might get on him again soon. My trainer thinks he could be quite good and he will probably test her out everytime she gets on for a while but eventually he should settle down when it doesn't work. Yay!
See what happens next time I suppose.
