What am I going to do?
Well I don't know what I did with my time before I got Chinga, met Jalah and started training Pumpkin. Because Jalah has gone away for the weekend to music camp *I hope you have fun in a tent (?) without me to laugh your head off with* So now I'm all alone with Chinga untill Sunday afternoon? I didn't ride Chinga this afternoon so we can have a good work out on Saturday and Sunday. But now I've got no clue what I'm going to do with my time. Usually I ride Chinga and work with Pumpkin and/or Jalah, mess around with Chinga and Pumpkin. Attemp to teach Chinga tricks. Take photos of Chinga or mess around with Jalah. But now I've got no riding buddie :-|. No idiot friend :-( And no one to complain to (Chinga is a great listener but never seems to reply?) :cry:.
Jalah was saying when I got back from two days of being away that she was offically bored! What sucks is I can't ride all weekend because I'm not alound to ride unless Jalah, My sister *not a chance of her hanging around for more then 5 minutes* or my mum or dad there. Dads away in America. This was because I got bucked off by Chinga when no one was around and got badly hurt....opps.
So what am I going to do with myself? Poor Chinga is going to get sick of me! hehehe.
Def don't ride by yourself, it is dangerous. How about giving all the horses bathes and cleaning tack and re arranging the barn, stuff like that? It might not sound really fun but you may end up enjoying it. I don't know just a suggestion :)
We clean up once a week, Chinga had several baths just before our lesson and I just cleaned my tack just before my lesson as well! Thanks for the help tough. For those who don't know what happened with my accident. I was riding Chinga out in his paddock one day, Jalah was home but not out with me and I was walking and trotting Chinga around we were trotting and something happened (I say he freaked but others say different things I was there and I know him better then any one) He reared then bucked and I flew over his head and landed badly on my neck hurting my head, neck and arm (I was wearing a helmet) I lost a heap of confidence and so did he. Now we are back to our normal crazy selfs but I will never ride in his paddock again or by myself.
good for you that you keep everything so clean! maybe you could do some groundwork games?
We did that all last week, he was unrideable for a week so ground work ground work ground work. I am hoping to work on his leading on the weekend because he doesn't like being lead up the top of his paddock (where I got thrown) for some reason, but he will lunge up there. So thats something for us to work on.
Ground work always pays off, so you can never have too much of it!!!
I have always done more ground work, than riding, even once my horses are pretty well trained; it keeps us fresh, and helps maintain a really good relationship with the horse.
Insted of riding everytime you out there, just show chinga that, he is not just for riding, show him that you love him by just spending time telling him your worries and groom him(that is what i do)
Oh yeah he hears me complain about EVERYTHING! He gets "over groomed" and is dearly loved. He knows he isn't just for riding.
My best buddie arrived home today! I was out riding with mum cantering laps on Chinga. When I hear her car arrive I nearly fall off with exitment!
