So I decided i'd make my own journal here, to keep track on my goings on. :)
Well the ride outs are starting pretty soon so it's time to knuckle down and concentrate on exercising rocky more if I expect to win the cornets lass chase again. I've also decided that im going to attempt to start working blaze because he seems to be dying to get out his feild, however i'll have to make sure dads there to help the first few times as me and blaze have bad history.

Tacked Buiscut and Chip up and let them wander the yard to get used to the bit being in their mouths and a girth round there bellies. Buiscut handled it really well, Chip was a bit wary of the girth being round his belly and the roller on his back but he settled down after 2 mins.

Buiscut and Chip were both backed. Buiscut handled it really well and never even flinched with having me on his back. He just carried on eating his hay. Chip however was a bit more nervous but never tried anything naughty.both were lead about for a short while with weight on their back, both were well behaved.

Tacked Buiscut up and rode him around the yard for a bit, was a really good boy and learned quickly what was expected of him. Rode him down the road through the woods near the farm. Dad led chip incase buiscut needed a bit of reassurance. He wasnt bothered about leaving chip and was quit happy to go himself, chip was more bothered about buiscut leaving him. Buiscut seemed to really enjoy getting out.
