took rocky down to powfoot with star had to walk most of the way until we reached the shore as rocky lost a shoe but once we got on he shore he loved it as per, tail up head up prance prance prance until he calmed down, he really seemed to want to go but i made him pay attention to my commands before i allowed him to have a gallop.
got back to the farm, hosed his legs down gave him a treat and put him back and brought whiskey up to play about on, i've started riding her bareback and i can honestly say it's paying of with building up my thigh muscles more.
23rd of may
took hob-knob down to the shore with star today and i can honestly say he really needs the work, he's always been cocky but today he was just taking the mick, more than 5 times he tried to buck me off, each time he failed, he hasn't been worked in a little while though but after a good run around on the shore he soon calmed down, he was a bit flighty than usual but once again i put it down to lack of work so hob-knob is being added to my to-do list :)
got back from powfoot gave him a hose down a treat then put him back got whiskey and went around the block bareback.
i can honestly say whiskey has a perfect back for bareback riding and instead of trotting she jogs so its easy to relax and sit while she moves :)
