Jumping

Jumped Bobby while Hubby and little bro rode Red. He did not want to go over anything so I had Hubby go and get the whip and, miraculously, he went over just fine after that. I don't know what his problem was--bad footing, a little sore, or just being a brat? Personally, I think he was just trying to see what he could get away with. He went around just fine warming up, and once he realized I had the whip, he jumped great.

ass. hole.

Hubby's little bro tried trotting Red, but Red started cantering and went loping around the arena as he pleased as little bro pulled back and was yelling, "Whoa! Whoa!" He finally trotted over to Hubby and stopped. Red likes being naughty and getting away with it.


I did the line a couple times at the canter with Bobby and he's starting to jump at the canter much better. After the last jump though, when we get to the end of the arena, he careens around the corned bent the wrong way. If the friggin arena ever gets dragged, we're going to do a month straight of flat work and really nail his canter down.
