Cute remodel Stinker...
Stinker had kicked another board out of his stall and since he has gotten his hind shoes he has been doing a number on the wall. So ashamed of my asshole horse. Saturday I had a decent ride on him and filmed it for a video lesson (which I am super behind on blogging about them). I then rode Pongo. I am so out of shape when it comes to riding two horses.
Pongo was pretty good, we did dressage in a jump saddle. He didn't appreciate my insistence that he stay soft and move off my legs. We did lots of lateral work. Leg yields, shoulder ins, and what not. His leg yields are pretty good. The shoulder in leaves a bit to be desired, but I think part of that is me. I am much better at cueing leg yields than shoulder ins. Overall, I was pleased with him.
At least I think he is cute...
Saturday evening we had a surprise birthday party for the barn owner and it was really nice. Somehow he managed to surprise him, even though he got totally fed up with the girls that were suppose to keep him distracted and out of his house. He even offered the one driving $100 if she would take him back to the barn. This is the girl that you can get to do just about anything for $0.25.
Sunday, I was exhausted and didn't end up riding. I gave Stinker his meds and told him he was pretty. Then I went to check out the pig and ducks the girls had gotten. The barn owner is a total softy and I am praying that the pig stays little and doesn't turn out to be a 600 lb boar (it is a boy...). It is pretty cute and I will get picks of all the baby animals later. It was dark when I was out there.
My idea of adulting at its best.
