Our first show is 2 weekends from today in Del Mar and we’re ready!!!
Yesterday Lance’s work was short and to the point. He needed to listen and intensively and energetically respond. And he did. So a short work session; amazing work, really amazing work, happy horse…back to the barn!
Today is test day for Lance…the first Grand Prix test of 2014! We may even braid him!!!
Fred had a walk day yesterday. She has been working so hard and so well we thought a walk day would be a great stretch addition to her week. It was…very happy horse. Today she’ll go back to full work.
William went back to work yesterday. He’s had the week I was away off of work as he had a big bruise on the outside of his hoof, right hind. Don’t know what he did but guessing he cast himself sometime in the night and whacked it getting up. Silly boy. But he’s back at work now and looks great. Shannon long lined him and it looks like he is going to love the passage/piaffe work ahead!!! Good boy William!!! Today is more long lining with Shannon and then Lindsey up at the end of the session.
And, although this is the most exciting time of my life…learning, more learning and amazing learning…I really miss this….
So off to work out and head to the stable…today is test day!!!!!
