Jenny, Rey, Dave and Mickey
take a break
We got a lot done. We cleaned pastures, moved more gravel into the runs, redesigned the barn's roof drainage system and put up the dressage arena.
Rey is as strong as an ox.
With the dressage arena back up for the summer, I was dying to be First in the Pool!
Boomer was a little less thrilled.
I give you the raspberry, lady.
We had a nice ride. Actually, Boomer did better than I did. He had moments when he was a little behind the bit - we'll work on that - but otherwise he was really good.
He had nice crossing on the leg yields, and was just a really good boy. I, on the other hand, rode fairly poorly, especially at the trot. Head and eyes down, shoulders in front of the hips, yuck. We'll work on that too. I love trail riding, but it was grand to be back in the pool. You're next, Paj. David, thanks for coaching and taking pictures!
