|Teaching me a lesson about leaving him alone for a whole week!|
My first ride back I kept it very easy, just walk/trot. I was having a little trouble getting him to bend or move off my leg, but maybe I was just rusty and not asking right? Or he was expecting me to ride as well as the trainer...
We were supposed to have a lesson yesterday but ended up rescheduling so I did a little hack around the property. Cupid was very good. Then we went into the sand arena. I was still having a little trouble getting him to move off my leg, but when he did it I praised him and moved on to other things for a bit before going back and trying again. We did a lot of circles and serpentines, and a bit of canter work. The deeper sand made him a little tired I think, he was a little sweaty even though it wasn't very warm.
We might take Cupid to the horse park for a few days for a little training.
