OK, so I thought it might be worth while writing down Pumpkin and mine's progress so we can see how far we have come. First, I suppose, Pumpkin is 18 yrs old, 13.2hh Welsh cross something. We have had him scince he was 5 but he sat in the paddock untill I decided I wanted to do something with him.
So, early this year we had a trainer come in and help train Pumpkin. That went amazing and in 4 3-hour sessions, he was perfecto. I am super pleased that he now has the abilty to be ridden with less hiccups. So really, for the last 8 1/2 months, I've just been mucking around, glad to have a pony I can ride.
Well, the options for pony club and competeing have come into play, so we are cracking down and getting things like balance, collection, extension ect perfect. So, for the next month or so, I have packed up the jumps and am going to be really focusing on my dressage basics for Pumpkin. Huff.... that will be interesting ;p
That's all for now, I will *try* to keep this alive... Anyways, here are some pictures!
And his head...
