Today was a fun day! I finally got to meet up with Missy and Indi for some splash time. :) We wanted to go bareback so I decided I should probably ride first and get any antics out before we went bareback. Plus, Indi is a year younger and I didn't know if Dan would get him excited too.
So I got on and headed out to the XC field for some hill work. We walked for 10 minutes and then trotted for 6 minutes. He wasn't really even winded. Then I realized I only had about 20 minutes to get some energy burned off, untack him and get back to the lake! Eeeks. So... we jumped a few jumps. And he was naughty!! Or.... I didn't get the right canter. We kept either hitting them at a hugely long distance and he would almost bolt to it or we would hit them at the chip and puke. Ugh. I managed to get a few good fences in here and there but we kept vascillating back and forth with the pukes and the launches. Finally we finished with 3 good decent ones in a row. So we headed back. Poor Dan. He was puffing!!! He was happy to go and run and play and jump but it was so hot and humid.
