Curtis and I have to pick a show. That's goal #1. There is one Nov 4th and one Nov 18th. The first is a MT and dressage show. It's a very nice venue and maybe I could even do some riding around and schooling after. But I feel like it might be more of a zoo than the KDA schooling show on the 18th. Either way I'd ride 2 tests. The thing I'm most worried about is the further into November I get, the more likely the chance for shitty weather.
I want to get Curtis off the farm one more time before November. Possibly go ride at Masterson. I really need another lesson but my trailer is stuck atm. Maybe in a week? Or maybe she will want to give me a lesson in my field? Or do dressage trainers only give lessons in proper arenas??
Canter work. Weather and ground quality permitting, I need to be working on that canter in case I decide I'm brave enough for Training Level 1.
|why is the walk SO HARD?!|
Top line. More stretching and hill work and trot poles. I'm not sure how, but his shot from this week looks terrible compared to last month's. He's going to be wormed this week too, so maybe that will help. He just looks more hollow and dinosaur-like even with all the hill work and stretching he's done.
His feet however, are fantastic. I've been keeping up with them on my own and he's been a peach about it. He's not a fan of rocks but we can wtc in the paddocks with no problem. I've hardly even painted him. He and Twister are both on Tough as Nails by Tribute now and I think that's helping.
