|American Pharaoh, 141st KY Derby Winner!|
|Not going to be a stakes winner any time soon....|
Tried to make Twister play racehorse. He wasn't
too thrilled about that lol
Then Sunday, I did work around the farm. I mowed and mowed, trying to knock the paddocks down and at least make a gallop lane in the big paddock. T and B came over to help me clear the old posts out of the old little paddock and we took some of them and built me a new xc jump out in the back field. This way I can gallop up to it from a ways off and gallop out after it.
|new xc jump! designed to easily add width and height by just adding more!|
Twister's been doing this new thing now where I bring him in and tack him up and once I start riding he's an asshat. As soon as I get done riding and turn him out he pees like a racehorse once if not twice. So I guess I need to put him in a stall for a few minutes before I saddle him. He's never done this before. he's getting to be a pain in the butt. Someone said maybe it's the Micklem, but he's been great up until Wednesday or Thursday. Also, maybe I'm jumping him too much. Maybe I need to go down the road or let him gallop out in the big field a little. Normally I only jump once or twice in a week. But since it's been dry, I've been trying to take advantage of it and have been jumping more than not. He loves it, but I think he's getting a little sour.
|pretty happy with my position here|
Not that it matters too much. Dressage clinic is on Saturday so I'll be doing a little prep work to make sure we are ready and well-behaved for it! I'll ride today and tomorrow and probably just let him stretch out on a lunge line on Friday. I don't want him getting sour!
|someone please YELL at me to stretch that leg down and|
|asking for more stretch and extension. He obliged me...|
this time anyways.....
|I made this one bigger so you can see my face.... he broke into a canter|
from an almost walk catching me unawears.
