On a better note, my lesson today was great!
Pony was rather lazy, and we both worked hard. Some flatwork, then warmed up over one fence a few times. Worked on doing a 3 stride outside line, cross the diagonal to come around the turn to a 3 stride line on the other longside, and then cross the diagonal to go around to the first line again. He was a good boy, and the jumps went from 2’6” to 3’3”.
Sounds like we’ll be trying to get him into the OTTB class at the show next weekend! Hopefully we’re doing the Classic and Adult Medal, too (and everything fills)!
He is such a little pig, though! I let someone who rents on the property give him carrots and an apple before he got a bath, he got to clean up the grain his neighbor J dropped in the aisle, and then he still pushed on his stall door to let me know he was waiting for treats.
