He was going around nicely and then BAM he saw the brick painted boxes and his world came unglued. The focus of the night when from working on transitions to dealing with the spooking at hand haha! So I decided to got by the boxes and around the jumps till he decided to not worry about any of them. It was surprising how despite his brain being gone his canter was not super fast and stung out- I was proud- even thought I was a bit frustrated that he was being spookie at these things that we have been riding around for weeks.. yes the jumps have moved but please they are all the same!!!
So once I was able to get him to go by all the things without having a melt down a few times I called it quits and walked around to cool out. Gotta love how your plans can go out the window so fast haha!
Trainer ride tomorrow, lesson Thursday, lesson Friday and I am not sure about Saturday.
