Danimal was EXPLOSIVE today!!! Rawr!! He was a bit bouncy on Thursday but today was way worse! Luckily I rode Fleck first with Peri and George. And even Fleck was a bit rowdy. So then Kelli joined me with Dan. He was bouncing straight up in the air from about 6 strides into the ride til about 15 minutes in. I thought for a few minutes I was going to have to abandon the trails and hit the arena to avoid hitting the dirt. But finally he settled, took a breath, and moved forward instead of up and down and we were able to take a nice hack. He even relaxed enough by the end to go on the buckle. Phew... I was not wanting to hit the arena. We needed some trails!
