Best I could manage on my spinning giraffe
There was much prancing and giraffe like behavior on the way to the ring. I figured I was going to be in for a long ride and I was just hoping to get him to relaxed enough to get some decent walk and call it a day. Instead, after a few circles and a couple reminders the he can lower his head, he started stretching and reaching for the bridle way more than normal.
The trot work was about average, but I was so impressed with how he harnessed the nutty energy and went to work. Granted he was a butt on the ground and immediately went to chewing on Cowboy when I turned him back out, but I will take it if it means I can get a decent ride in as a storm is blowing in.
