I will bail this pony from auction if we can find her a ride from OKC to TX.
Not fundraising, just looking for a ride.
Blue was so good yesterday! Ashleen invited me out on the trail with her and the other girls, which was doubly exciting because Ashleen finally got her project mare. Unfortunately, while we were on the way out to the trail, the mare had a mare moment, so Ash decided to stay behind and school her, and I decided to stay as well. Boy, am I glad I did. After a long warm-up and multiple circles to get Blue into a working trot instead of his usual cow-pony trot, he started to loosen up and respond. And, what a surprise, he picked up his left lead on the first try! Silly me, I didn’t expect it and started bringing him back to a trot immediately. But then he got it again, and again, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled.
After that, I cantered him a couple of times in the other direction and then popped him over a cavaletti. He was doing so well that I decided to bring him down a line of crossrails. He was great! Didn’t touch the rails, and cantered nicely through the whole line. I was so pleased that I decided to do something I hadn’t attempted yet – trot down over the cavaletti, and canter up over the line. Blue took it all in stride, if you’ll forgive the pun, and I ended our ride on that note!
I’m going out to ride again tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll be able to get some pictures or video!
