Hmmm... My life has been beyond insane for a while. But I got to ride today (: Well, its spring break which is good. Urg.. so i'm taking care of this house and its animals while the people are out of town and I took the dog for a walk and I come back and the neighbor finds me and is like why did you take the dog?, who are you?, we were so worried., so on and so forth. Well, apparently the owners told me to look after the house and the cats and the chinchilla and told the neighbors to look after the dog... urg.. stupid miscommunication. Well anyway that's my rant for today..
Today I rode bj, he was quite amazing for me. He is 5 or 6 and he's a solid bred apha blue roan gelding. Im training him for his owners. He's starting to actually look like a blue roan since he's shedding :] We mostly worked on trotting and slowing down and collecting.. I was bareback too. He can now successfully back up with voice command or legs/seats. Its quite amazing. My goals are to get him to canter now and to back out of a trailer instead of being led out becasue theyve got a 3h slant and I've got a 2h bp. Yeah.. by the way the weather was really amazing and warm and sunny. Can't wait to ride again -R
