Trying to be thankful

But it's hard...  We should have been finishing a clear XC run at the AEC's now...... and the weather is PERFECT riding weather..... cool, crisp, warm, windy.

Sigh....








Rehabbing rides....

Sigh... boring short walks, but... at least we can ride.








 Thank goodness he is handling it really well!! Even with the tractor and dump truck!











 We walk some more..... 25 minutes worth.


 All this walking makes Dan hungry.

And still more walking.... but seriously.. what a good horse!

2: 10 meter circle at every letter (ie.. don't stop riding in between the movements).
3: Baby piaffe steps/rubberband.... ie collect and collect then let him reach, but ONLY forward and up, not forward and down
4: lightning quick leg yields
