Yesterdays ride was so freaking excellent.
I got on intending to do lots of lateral work but worked more on getting him to relax through his back and release and it went very well. His transitions were actually freaking great, even the up left lead canter transition, which is our stickiest.
The quality of his trot, canter and free walks were amazing and I couldn't have been happier! More stretchy work is definetly a must!
This saturday Emily and I are heading to STL for a jumper show (same one as last time) and I intend on kicking some ass. I want a first place this time :) Mwah hahahahaha!
Also, I am competing at the Show Me State Games in the Area 4 USDF Team Championships. The SMSG are like Missouri's version of the Olympics. Literally, there is an opening ceremony, the games and the closing ceremonies and whatnot. The Dressage competition will be super fun, since we get to match colors or whatever for teams. Each of us have to ride a different level and one has to be an FEI test. We only have 3 members, so hopefully we can snag that wild card FEI test ride since neither Hannah, Terri or I are ready for an FEI test just yet, haha. I think I am going to do 1st or 2nd Level depending on what Hannah and Pronto will be doing, since Terri will be doing training level. Its going to be really fun!
I jump real fences thursday, since I haven't jumped over 2ft since my fall/event.
In other news, I start Summer school June 6, not really looking forward to that OR buying books.....ugh.
