|We need to suit up in our rain gear just to get to the covered arena!|
Yesterday we got a break in the rain so I did a little bareback (with pad) ride around the property. There were some very muddy patches, where I thought to myself please don't let me fall off right here into this mud pit. Luckily I didn't. Cupid had one little spook, I think the wind picked up a tarp and it startled him and he started trotting away. I got him back to a walk and then stop, and made him walk back towards it a little, giving him lots of pats.
Today we had a flatwork lesson. Mainly worked on our canter transitions and leads. My trainer also made me trot around in two point for a few minutes, a good exercise for my legs. Apparently even in two point I let me legs slide back.
On Christmas morning I will go out to see Cupid and give him lots of treats and tell him what a good boy he is.
