|Going up the hill|
|Down hill! Do y'all see that stinking high step? Yes. He is becoming more graceful! BOOYAH!|
|I think I was looking at the sky and saying, "is it a bird? Is it a plane? I hope it's a unicorn!"|
Made a few laps. Then. THEN. THEN! I trotted bareback. For the first time. Ever. Surprisingly, his trot *wasn't* as horrific as i'd thought it would be! Seriously guys, he has the roughest gait ever, but bareback it wasn't so bad. I'd actually rather trot than walk bareback now.
|Love Brewski! :)|
I decided to take him to the round pen after so step-dad opened gates and we were off.
|He is so gorgeous. :O Tell me I'm not biased.|
Trotted around in the round pen for a few minutes until he started bunny hopping from flies and I hopped off to go groom him and fly spray him. He was being so annoyed by them..he did SO much better outside the pen than inside, as usual he was testy because I was bareback but he did pretty good nonetheless and put up with my tight reins in the beginning. :)) :)) I'm proud of him. ;) ;) He listened to the cues well enough other than wanting to turn once we got to one spot in the pen. A's husband R drove by in his 4-wheeler and Red didn't even glance, just trotted along. :)) Love my boy! R looked at him and applauded him for not dumping me and then said, "well, even if he did throw you, you'd be fine because you have a bond." lol!
|Ignore my bareback butt :P|
Red got in a few Z's.
|Like Reds butt hat?|
Once we were done I fly sprayed, brushed him out, groomed his mane and tail then took him outside. Or tried. He refused to leave my side, literally. He kept doing his hug thing and wrapping his head around my neck and wouldn't move. LOL. Poor baby wanted some more cuddles. :( Gave him a treat and pushed his butt out. :)) Spirit's leg is back to normal now, too. Thought we saw him favor it earlier but he just stepped weird in a more rocky area and is doing well.
Great ride today. :) No clue on the schedule this week. Next up is Spirit! Gonna round pen him and possibly lunge. Depends on how I feel and how he acts then. After that it's Red's turn again. Mom's free to ride in less than 2 weeks so she's excited.
