Chugging along

I had a bunch of posts I was going to write and then I had my busy week and I can't seem to think of any of them.  Prisoner continues to go well.  He is starting to bend more evenly through his body each direction, and can go through entire sets of trot on the bit.  He is figuring out his balance in the arena so I can ride him more forward without feeling like he is floundering.
This face

Concentrating*

Cantering with a grin*

He wants kisses placed right there on his pink nose

Fancy trot

Bedroom eyes*

Thoughtful boy*

Matching hats*

Tack love*
*yay for horselessinhalifax coming to town and taking great pics!

Sunday is shaping up to be a funday with a trip around the corner to Trainer S's giant arena for some course schooling in prep for P-diddy's first show next Saturday.  After we see how tomorrow goes we will decide on classes at the show, I'm currently planning on x-rails, 2', and 2'3".  There is also a 2'-2'3" gambler's choice that I might do, so much fun!  I am really pumped to see how he does.

Definitely borrowing a rig to haul with tomorrow as my truck brakes suddenly went wonky last night after (thank goodness not before) hauling hay.  Off to the shop we go, fingers crossed for an easy fix!
Feel better truck!

  6. He is so handsome! Why do problems with trucks/trailers always have to happen right before you need them the most? Good luck at the show!

    1. Thank you! Seriously though if you can convince the horse to stay sound then the truck doesn't!
