So i placed three trotting poles to distract the two of us as a reward if we both kept our cool and/or needed a distraction/reset button ☺
|It's been so long since I saw a blue sky|
i almost didn't know what to do with myself
It was a lovely day so I decided to take Nancy for a stroll in the woods and Kika came along on a leadrope cos why not. She has had the bones of three weeks off so a bit of walking wasn't going to kill her. Nancy didn't put a toe out of line, not on crow hop or kick nor did she bulge/swing her backside left at any stage. I'll still get the osteo out to her, but maybe the issues in arena work are mine...let's be honest - this is 99% probable. ;-)
Our only hiccup was on our way to the woods we have to pass a field where a couple horses are turned out. Normally this isn't a problem, but today the black and white cob was lying down with his back to us. So Nancy stopped for a gawk till he turned to look at us and she realised it was a horse and not a monstrosity or whatever she had previously thought.
I am over the moon that I have managed to sign up for a lesson on each tomorrow. Kika first at 13h30 & then Nancy a little later at 15h30. I cannot wait!
