Coming back home after a vacation can feel so nice.
I love my home, my schedule, my BED, my puppies, my pony....so it's a welcomed job to return to it all
On my way to the barn, the fields that raise Sunflowers are BLOOMING.
It's so cool to see how they change their direction, following the sun's rays.
After 2 weeks of no riding; when I hopped back on, he was like "Cool, let's go."
He is such a good boy and I'm learning his ways of communication a little better as well.
The other day, I started our work by free working with him in arena.
He calmly walked up to the barrels that I had set up and sniffed, rubbed on them and ...
of course, LICK LICK LICK.
He has a clear obsession of licking barrel water...just LUVS to do it and play with it.
"Are youz gunna get on?"
Back to the barrels
Working on commands
Use that tummy Laz, ya!
Ugly shot of trot to walk
Walking through the water obstacle on his own accord
He always chose to trot through it which I don't have a picture of, but it was funny and awkward
And casting away
Calling back to me
After our free lunge, we rode the 'course' for 40 minutes at the trot pretending everything was a jump, even though we jumped nothing. It helps me with my focus, steering, etc and it's fun
