I've been in a bit if a slump lately, work my physical health and all that's been affecting my mental health.
Well I think I'm finally out of it, finally rode my horse, I mean properly rode him, not a jump on bareback and walk around then off i get, out on a bush ride for the first time in 2 months maybe, maybe longer and he was a gem
Went through water (most of the rides are under water ATM so he was a very good boy), went for a nice little trot and just had a nice time out on my horse :)
I finally feel like everything's coming together :)
I'm not going to push it anytime soon though, I've been lunging him as well, on the days when I have energy and he's walk, trotting and cantering on both sides
Which is awesome, in case you don't know, I've been having a really really hard time getting him to take that right canter consistently.
I still want to send him off to the trainer as I will be unable to ride/care for him in that time but getting kind of annoyed as she hasn't sent back anything with references, I've sent her an email I think last week now asking for her to send them but still no response... But if he doesn't end up going I think I'm just going to put him out to spell for 2-3 weeks...
But I'm not that worried, like a couple of months ago I would of been worrying but right now I'm not, it's great :) I just feel so much chilled with everything.
Haha well that's my happy rant, needed to share with someone
