Since I have been just THE WORST blogger the past week, I'm going to condense my last few rides into just pictures.
After I rode Gid the bad pony I flatted the Yankee pony, working on relaxing the neck and moving forward with dat trot. I also tried out the black sheepskin thin- line pad. (Christmas liiiiiiist!)
|Working on moving forward|
|Looking very relaxed & forward!|
|Haunches on helped a little|
The day after we jumped and it was just fantamiscal.
Minus the one time he took off about 4 feet early and I almost died
|dat bounce doh|
He was like a loaded rocket that day!
We also did some bow work
Yesterday, I let my horseless friend hop on Yankee for a bit. Her horse died in a freak accident a year ago and she was itching to ride. I felt so bad for her :( She's actually a seriously awesome rider and has been trained in dressage. She had Yankee looking ridiculously good...like, better than I can ride him.
They worked on a little shoulder fore since he HATES it and general forward moving. For not having ridden in a whole year she looked amazing. Yankee really liked her!
And yes, pony face is sportin a fresh new 'do. Clipped by yours truly.
Might do flames on a friends horse.
I think I'm all caught up now! Jumping tomorrow!
