She is looking wonderful! I can't get over how pretty she is sometimes.

She's quite the little busy body. I noticed that her halter is laying in the dirt every time I stop by. I hung it back up last night and stood there talking to the BO for a minute when I saw her pick it up and throw it back in the dirt. "So that's what's been happening to my halters" said the BO

She's very interested in people. When others show up to do whatever she runs up to the fence and tries to get their attention.

I snuck into her paddock last night to check her water and she came running out of her stall like a bat out of hell to say hello.

The BO really likes her "she's the most jovial horse I've ever met" he said. I would have to agree.
Sounds like the kind of horse that would come in the house sit down and watch TV with you.

I rode Miss Ana in the outdoor this morning. The barn still has all the decorations and obstacles up from last week's schooling show; Ana was a little looky but otherwise ok; she was mostly suspicious of the two unicorn statues so we had to do a lot of circles to get around them; I gotta say, these H/J folk sure are creative; I need to see if I can find a picture of the jumping course.

My plan this morning was to focus on cantering; we cantered one large circle before my back started to spasm again, so we had to continue with just walk and trot work.

We did get some good transitions, but she was also putting up some resistance again, so I'm careful to give her breaks at reasonable intervals and not just every time she demands one.

I worked hard on keeping the "inside leg to outside hand" concept going; I still have to monitor my outside elbow as it likes to drift away if I'm not watching it. It's amazing how seemingly little things make such a significant difference.

I have two more days before I head out on vacation so I'll be doing some more straightness training and perhaps one more ride in the indoor.

Yes, she certainly is a busy body

I adore this picture from Saturday; this time of year I usually have to hose her off after our ride, so she always has to roll in the dirt just as soon as she gets back to her pasture:

So, it's been an eventful day already, so I'm going to have to do three separate posts; starting with Miss Ana Grumpy Face; apparently she is not a morning horse:
