So i do happen to love my horse, even though we were considering selling him because he was being an idiot all week.
I cant remember if I told you about our hack on sunday, though i think i did :)
So yesterday (thursday) i had a lesson and i was dreading it, but he was a rather good boy. I rode on the lunge to start with and practised bending him and smacking him when he starts to slow down. He was a very good pony, and we rode off the lunge as well. He got rather excited when we were going from walk to trot and got very responsive - haha.
Today i took him on a little hack. No one was around so we had to go on our own, something new for the pea. He set of all happy, and we trotted along past his field before he got tired. So we walked and then got to the corner to go along the straight and he point blanked refused, determined that i was either going to ride him home or he would throw me off. So instead i led him alll the way along the straight : then got on to go down the hill, just for him to muck about again, even though he was nearly home sort of :S So i led him again, then when i got back on we cantered up the hill, and then trotted all the way down the road and he kept trying to canter. So much for not meaning to do too much on the road in case he goes lame : ah well.
Got a jumping clinic tomorrow. Im well scared! haha!
