First time in big pasture
Well, more like second time, but first time in a long time, lol. So some of you guys know that today I let Cayden out with the other horses. We took out the two geldings and put them in a smaller paddock, so Cayden can get buddy up to the mares. Well, so far nothing has happened, the group of mares are staying on one side of the pasture, and Cayden and her pasture mate are staying on the other side, lol. Cayden is getting used to her new surroundings, which is good. She actually cantered the hill a couple times, which of course made me really nervous, but she made it with no problem, so I'm happy, so we're just gonna see what happens the next couple of days. Either tomorrow or the next day we're putting one gelding in, then the next day after that the other gelding goes, so yeah, we're taking it step by step, ahaha.

Yes, there's more to this topic, ahaha. In a couple weeks, I'm taking Cayden to out first jumping lesson! I'm super excited, you have no idea! Then we have our first show in May, it's an in barn show, which I'm happy about cuz then the classes are cheaper, which means more classes, ahaha. But planning on doing 3 flat classes and one or two trot a pole classes, though my mom thinks I should do a couple fence classes, but Cayden has never done a full course with seven to eight jumps. Like I know she's probably capable of doing a whole course of cross rail jumps, but I'm not taking the chance. Even if my trainer said she would be able to, I'm not gonna. I'll probably be using one of the school horses for the fence classes, so yeah, I'm hoping to ride Ed, and if not, probably ride Maggie.
Okay pictures! Some are of Cayden, and the others are of my first jumping lesson since December, so please ignore my horrible EQ. I didn't get ride Ed sadly, but I got ride my other favorite horse, Maggie (the chestnut one)<3
