|trip and bobby bothered by the bugs|
|smartest ponies ever?|
|love nibbles. bobby was covered in hay slime when they were done.|
I worked on posting"low and slow" (BO's tip) when Bobby started rushing at the trot which is way harder than it sounds. But it does work, so it's something for me to keep working on. I also made sure to pick up the canter from random spots instead of in corners. To the left, I picked it up as I headed onto a circle from E, and to the right I picked it up at X again. Both times from the walk and both times he was pretty friggin' calm. He got the wrong lead behind to the right, but with a little poking from my spur he swapped over and carried on.
We finished with a little hack (only ten minutes) down the trail, but it was all in half seat! Even down the hills! Which terrifies me! So yay! I did do a lot of two point work during our arena ride too, but I realized once I was mounted and walking along standing in my stirrups that a) I don't have a watch, and b) there's no clock to be seen in there! So I plan on picking up a cheapie watch tomorrow so I can set a baseline.
Mr Magee got sprayed down and taken out for some grass to dry when we were done.
|silliest ears ever.|
I dropped the lead as I went to close the gate to the arena since he was nibbling on grass along the fence line, and Bobby decided that would be a good time to take himself back to the barn. Only he got distracted along the way....
|he found love in a hopeless place....|
|just before the thunderstorm hit.|
|and just after, taken from off our porch. |
