I know that at home the work is really starting to come together, but he's not the same horse at shows this year, and my attempts at getting him out more keep getting foiled. After this little show on the 7th, we won't be showing again for over a month, and I'll be on vacation for a week of that.
It's fucking with my head, bro.
Now we're all sick of reading about repetitious dressage rides (and I'm sick of doing them), so here's some truly fascinating video from today.
Trotting and cantering right:
Bobby was actually quite a prick today. He was all about pulling and not listening to my outside leg again, to the point where he rammed me into a pair of standards hanging off the wall and sent them crashing to the ground via my leg. He got whacked on the ass for that because I was actively asking him to move over. Then I made him side pass across the entire arena.
|bobby: oh my GOD, this is horrible!|
me: shut up. i'm being a monkey. (?? srsly. my face?)
Oooooh, I fucking hate spoiled fucking little snots.
