Well hardly official but I've decided and that's what counts; working my horses makes me a much happier person.
Mother nature got her weather act together and strung three dry days together for us, this afternoon she even managed a healthy 10° C...woohoo.
I rode Moo yesterday and today; he's still full of energy but it's been weeks since we had a work routine so I can't really blame him. I took video today but as usual I ran on too long and it's too big to upload and I can't edit for some reason (computer says nooooo). It's really helpful to have some eyes on the ground, even if they're only mine! I need to take my neck back into my collar more and need a little more control of his shoulders in the trot lateral work. That'll do to work on for now, there's loads more but petit à petit. I was really chuffed though, that my right foot is not everting much any more...got to keep up the exercises if it's working!
Yesterday I tacked up Chapsi and we went into the school. He is so chilled on the yard now; stands patiently, lifts feet for picking etc and stands beautifully for the saddle. He's a bit ticklish when the girth is tightened but that's improving. In the school we worked in-hand turning; halting, backing and he was a good lad.
Today, in an attempt to keep things changing, we went down to the square paddock and I worked him on the grass...weird he thought, all that grass and I can't just stop and eat. He was pretty chilled and we did a couple of circuits of the field, halting and moving off etc and then back up the hill to the yard.
Can you tell I've had my horse fix, LOL ??
