No real news here, except that I wanted to say thanks for not shunning me for writing weird posts about my horse’s habits in the stall.
I hopped on Foster again last night, marking our second ride back to work. Admittedly I didn’t do a whole lot, just 20-25 minutes of actual work, but at least it was saddle time. He was a little grumpy, a little pokey, but we ended on a good note and a nice amount of foamy lipstick to boot. Also, I finally remembered to put on gloves and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
J took some video from Foster’s first ride back, which started with lunging Foster over a canter pole. At least I’m not the only one that can’t find the distance sometimes 🙂
And then after I got in the saddle, and working on a hella lot of stretchy trot to get him loosened up after having some time off.
I’m planning on tonight actually getting in a solid dressage schooling, at least Training level (dressage) work. Depending on the lesson schedule, which can make our covered arena rather too busy to get anything worthwhile accomplished. Hey, we’ll see.
He looks like he’s feeling pretty good!
Someone looks great!! 🙂
Foster is so pretty. No matter what he’s doing, I’m always struck by how gorgeous his coloring is 🙂
he looks nice and spring-y on the lunge!! and you to make that stretchy trot look downright easy – nice job!
