I had my lesson on Thursday, but it didn't go as well as the last one. It was more reminiscent of that first time Eros and I jumped. He's been a little spooky lately, nothing like Jamp of course, but just looky and inattentive. I'm wondering if he was on depo before I got him, because it would have worn off by now for sure. He's not been bad really, just not quite the super quiet horse he's been. Anyway, he jumped all the jumps and all of that, but was very strong an landing and trying very hard not to be a straight horse. We finished up with a nice straight line with the correct amount of steps and called it a day. I'm hoping I'll have a better lesson this week. We've been working a lot harder in our flat sessions, so hopefully that will take some of his edge off.
Saturday was yet another rainy day. A BUSY rainy day. It started with a 5K I ran with some friends.
I spent Saturday evening with these two doing some laundry and not socializing because I was exhausted. Too much exercise for me in one day!
Next stop was Eddie's house. We had some jumping to do! I think it's been 2, maybe even 3 weeks since we last jumped, and Eddie is BORED. He LOVES jumping. He was a little distracted so it wasn't really our best jump school ever, but it was still pretty decent. We stuck to single jumps and some roll backs to keep his attention.
After Eddie I headed back home to take care of the boys. I wanted to finally walk Jamp outside again. Unfortunately, just as I brought him out, my PITA neighbor started hammering away on something. You all know Jamp. That was too much for him. So we walked inside again. Boo. Rio walked outside because he doesn't care about the spooky neighbor, and then got to have some grass too.
Tuesday was the usual, walk, flat Eros, groom the boys.
And that's about it! This weekend Nona Garson is coming to do a two day clinic at the barn. Step mom is riding in a flat session Saturday, and I'll be jumping on Sunday. Hopefully it goes well!
