I took the pony up for a walk to Donna's (my friend with the pony) and we introduced her mini's and Shetlands to Pumpkin. He did very well, staying with me (mentally and physically thankfully!) and there was not much of a fuss to be made. Took him home, rugged him and fed him.
1st may, Sunday
Went to work for 7 hours for Donna, she owns a small business where we give pony rides at carnivals and races etc. That was quite fun, it was not a busy day, so we got to chill for the first couple of hours. Came home and did not do anything else.
2nd May, Monday
It was a public holiday and I was not planning to do much, but a friend of mine, Maddie, popped over to help me out with Pumpkin. He did very well, not to much misbehaving, but he still kept life interesting and me on my toes. Nothing like Pumpkin to teach you to keep your butt in the saddle :p Did a little bit of jumping, he still enjoys it very very much. We were going over 50 cm towards the end of the ride, nice and clean. Not to high, but hey! Good for a while off. Very happy to be jumping him again.
After his ride, I went out to the movies with friends. Lots of fun and giggles.
3rd May, Tuesday
I really was planning to ride Pumpkin again today, but as soon as I get out for lunch at school, a rather large thunder storm came over. It is going over our house at the moment, so defiantly no riding!
Till the next time,
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
