Lex continued with her nose-to-the-ground Western-pleasure-realness trotting today, but we managed to stay on the rail better. I also shortened my stirrups a hole and I think that helped me stay balanced. Well enough that I was able to take this picture of what it looks like from atop Lex.
|Her shoulder looks huge!|
Then I made the irresponsible decision to go ride a couple horses at the lesson barn. It was the perfect day for it, because it wasn't hot and the ring was empty. I wanted to try out one of the school horses and spend more time with Finn.
Pedro wasn't signed up for any lessons today, so I snagged him out of the field to jump around a little.
|LOOK AT THAT FACE!|
|Looooooong neck compared to Lex!|
|This is him, I believe last year.|
All right, I'm beat and I have to feed those silly horses in the morning, so off I go. If you have tips for dealing with a sweet-but-dumb three-year-old warmblood, leave them in the comments, please! :)
