OH MY GOD HE WAS AMAZING!!!!!!
Brought him in, warmed him up on the lunge because there were people jumping and he’s a bit nervous still when it’s more than one horse. He was BRILLIANT. Hopped on and did our flatwork, really asking him to stretch down and he was so good. Gave him lots of vocal praise and walk breaks. He spooked when I was on the buckle but it was totally fine - he scooted forward but I just moved with him, collected my reins and put him to work at the trot which is was the gait he had jumped into. As soon as he softened I let him walk again and he was perfect. Did a tiny bit of leg yield work, which he’s getting better at. Got off and went into the outdoor ring. He was an angel even though there was a lesson going on. All we did was trot a little x-rail both directions - he’s hunting the fences and wants to canter it! My trainer friend raised it to a 2′0-2′3″ vertical and my awesome little baby took me right to it and jumped it fabulously AND landed on the correct lead. He did it both directions and I made the most fuss out of him ever. SO PROUD OF HIM.
He’s getting a top line and has a little crest and djflkas;djf;laksdfjad. SO HAPPY. He got a good brush, treats, and I even let the chunky pony graze for a bit. He’s such a joy to work with.
Also gave Ringo some treats and let him graze for a bit, the spoilt pony. He has a lesson tonight so I didn’t ride him.
