Cavalettis! Kinda tough to see but there are 4 of them.
Charlie's been quite good although a bit heavy. I've been doing a lot of canter-walk-canter transitions as well as some counter canter to get him thinking about where his body is. Everyday he feels stronger and stronger. We did trot sets in the rain on Sunday which kinda sucked but could have been worse. Good thing I don't live in the UK - I hate riding in the rain.
Ok, so it wasn't really raining more like drizzle but I still hate riding in the rain!
Just chilling before our ride this past Saturday.
So I've decided to never pull Charlie's tail as most eventers do. He has a great braiding tail and I'm going to practice until I've perfected the art. Any H/J folks want to give me some pointers?
Aren't they cute? 1 second after this, Lilo jumped back about five feet. She can't quite figure the horse thing out. But Charlie loves her anyway.
Tip of the day courtesy SuperMom: 1L Smart Water bottles make excellent boot trees. Way better than newspaper rolls.
I'm off to get hay tomorrow. Fingers crossed he has stuff as nice as what I got this spring - ponies hoover that stuff up like they're starving!
