Because it was so warm and obviously, it's hard work when you do things correctly, she got so sweaty even though I didn't ride for very long, so she got her first bath at the new barn and then we went and grazed out in the sunshine for a few minutes.
|Sweaty pony worked extra hard today!|
|Not worried about being in the pony torture chamber...|
|Sunshine and green grass :) Almost feels like spring!|
|Half naked :)|
I just had another short ride on Tux and he was also very good. He picked up both leads into the canter today right off the bat and was very smooth and calm. We changed it up down the centerline, doing halts at X or G or just walking or doing a leg yield at the trot. As much as I'd hate to change up such an obedient halt, he really is overenthusiastic about stopping so we need to iron that out a bit more. Counting down the days until I get to take him to his first dressage show!
Also, a nice surprise when I got to the barn today - they redid the boarder's tack room and it's so nice now! I have a whole wall now :] They put in more saddle racks, shelves and round bridle hangers instead of just the nails, plus a little dangly hanger thing that all my girths are on. I love it!
