On Sunday, I RODE RIO!!!!!!!!
|Best view in the world. Haven't seen it in two years!
this post, then this one, this one, and this one) I never thought I'd get to sit on him again. We didn't do much, just a few laps at the trot each direction. But we're going to do it again soon! And maybe one day we'll even canter. We'll see. He's not completely sound. But I'll have the vet see if it's just due to his handicaps, or if it's something we can help him with. He was just as excited as I was to ride together. Though he was probably more excited to eat grass afterwards. Either way, it was a great day for the both of us!
Ok, so backing up... I rode Jamp and Romey pretty much everyday since last week's What's Up Wednesday. Right up until this week anyway. Monday I planned a day off for them all, because it was time and it was pouring all day. It stopped by the time I got home from work, but the ring was all puddles. I couldn't ride last night either because the wind was blowing at 25 mph and well... my horses don't really do that.
I don't know what is happening inside Jamp's little brain, but he's so edgy lately! He's not wild. I've tried lunging him to get the cuckoo out, but there really isn't much there. Regardless, every ride he's ridiculously spooky. Scoots at everything! I was heading to some trot poles on Saturday when he scooted right in front of them!
This was the first weekend the boys could head out and enjoy some after work grass. They were pretty happy about it!
I had a braiding job Friday night after riding, but I'm going to write a separate post on that. It was a challenge though! Here's a sneak peak:
