    I will do a double check to see that I am clear, but if you wouldn't mind that would be wonderful :) We can start some basic dressage! :P
    And bring a USB

    Well, life has been boring. Fracturing my arm has made me realize how much time I spend doing stuff with horse... I have so much free time now.

    Had to tell pumpkin to back off with his attempts to take over again tonight. Chased him away a few times and he came round. Malting has hit big time, he will make me a mountain with is fur by the time he is done.

    Finally on holidays. I now have 2 weeks to do nothing and spend time in general chilling with Pumpkin without having to worry about school work etc.

    While I think of it, does anyone have any activities that I can do with Pumpkin non-riding wise? He gets bored when he doesn't get ridden and it would be nice for him to do something different.

    Went out to play with Pumpkin today. I set up a tarp and a small jump with a florescent shirt on it to start some desensitizing to random jumps. I started to free lunge him with the halter on after those obstacles were done and well worked with. I figure this will start getting him used to the idea that it is possible to lunge with something on his head. Later we will include me holding a lead rope and doing lunging the proper way.


    He soon had enough of going where I told him, and he took himself off for a canter/gallop around the paddock a for a while, providing the family with some entertainment. I kept pushing him on until he came back and settled down. I finished on a good note by asking him to go back to lunging around me and we cooled off.

    Today I gave my younger sister a ride on Pumpkin. She has taken lessons previously, but really wasn't that interested. Since we are on holidays, and we were both bored, she wanted to jump on.

    He is no type of pony who will put up with being told what to do if you don't ride him much, but he did very well for her today. He started to grasp the concept that you don't go to mum whenever you feel like it, and that you actually listen to other peoples leg cues. She had him going well by the end of the ride.

    She still needs some work with rising trot, and Pumpkin looked rather uncomfortable during some of the trotting, but I am very pleased with how he behaved and let her carry on. I think she learnt a thing or two about riding today, so that is pleasing.

    I set up some things for her to go around, and hopefully soon we can start getting more technical about the rides and incorporate picking things up and dropping them places. She might even get to canter soon, but who knows?

    I am getting my cast on tomorrow :( Not looking froward to that, but that is what life has given me and I shall have to deal with it the best I can.

    Anyway, enough blab, more photos.

    My sister rode Pumpkin again on Tuesday. Her heels were a lot better this time. Pumpkin then became the lawn mower around the house and the next day.

    Went to the naturopath again yesterday. It is so nice to have my tailbone fixed. I am also going back when my arm is out of the cast so she can do some muscle strengthening exercises.

    Took some photos of Pumpkin again this morning.

    That’s pretty much it.

    I will upload photos soon as I am on the wrong computer.

    Short post today.

    As some of may know, Maddie (ChingazMyBoy) popped over yesterday and gave Pumpkin a ride. She took him over some jumps and tested his height out because he got to bored with the little stuff. He got up to 85 cm as the tallest. Very proud of my baby. They then finished after doing some flatwork.

    If you want to critique on Pumpkins form, feel free. :)

    Maddie might be coming over this arvo again, so I will keep you all updated as to how that goes.

    Pic are only screen shots, so sorry about the badish quality.

    1. 75cm
    2. 85 cm
    3. 85 cm
    4. 85 cm
    5. 85 cm
    6. Rolling
