Sept 25th 2012

What a different horse I had last night from Monday nigh- thank goodness!

I rode with music last night, one ear bud in and one out (so I could still hear if something needed to be heard). Since he was so fresh/jumpy on Monday I didn't want to be able to hear what he heard so that it wouldn't worry me. I am not sure if it really helped but what a world of a difference our ride was.

Started out long and low... changing direction a lot... sitting trot... canter with good transitions... walk/canter without stirrups... sitting trot no stirrups... posting no stirrups.

Cell Phone pic in the mirror, i know quality lol

He has the crazies mane ever! I wet is and brush it to the right every night.. doesn't help!

  2. Super Hold Sport hair gel really helps keep it over for a week or so.

  5. They generally don't rub out the training braids because they're nowhere near as tight as show braids. That said, my guy has the goofiest mane and I have fixed it just because I think it's cute. I take great care of all the other horses in the barn, though.
