|Today was a good day|
I honestly think I deserve a medal or an award, or an adult beverage, or at the very least a fucking cookie for enduring that nonsense. Never again. Thank you EDGE plan and Verizon.
That being said, you know what that means...pictures!
The camera in this 6 is pretty bangin, but thanks to my inability to set it out of direct light of the sun, the quality wasn't great. Regular photos were pretty stunner though, and they made B look fly as fuck. I'm more than a little excited.
At Rolex I obtained some pretty awesome deals, and now finally have pics to prove it! I've ridden in the tack 3 times now, & I think I'm beginning to become obsessed with Stubben. The quality is amazing and I honestly really like the orangeish look. The breastplate is also so fugly its sexual.

I'm still on the fence about the bit. Bacardi has always seemed to not quite like bits in general and always tosses his head at initial contact. Today seemed a little less than usual, but he was also fussy. Good, but fussy.
I started off with shoulder -in exercises and trying to have soft, following hands. He really likes being put to work right away. If we waffle about, I notice B works himself up, whereas if I give him "a job" he gets right to it. Handy.
Once We loosened up, I kept it simple. Trot circles, trying to maintain proper bend and cadence, with forward energy. Seems simple, but he was all over the place wiggly. Again, because fatty and out of shape, so I maintained even contact and kept my aids supportive & let him figure it out

|Lovely, good B|
|Looks like a wild man here. Letting his locks grow out|
|What a good baby|
Overall, a good ride. I'm not sure how well that BoT headband is really working, but both times I've ridden with it, he's resembles an actual horse instead of a complete idiot. It also is not hot outside, so who really knows. I guess the horse gods have bestowed their mercy on me finally.

I leave you again, with good thoughts and an adorable picture of the Levi dog.
