Sunday- Hot and dusty, so played in a friend's western saddle.
I never really have ridden in a new one, and holy moly that thing is squeaky! It was like we were being followed by a pack of ravenous mice. Holly was not amused. She played western pleasure pony before I got her, so at least I knew she wouldn't be nuts.
Honestly I am finally more comfortable in my CWD than a western saddle. Never thought I'd say that. I do still want a good western saddle, still nice for trail to me.
Tuesday Night- Lady's night is coming back around, now that Karley is back in the saddle (yay!) It was still pretty warm out, ugh, over summer now. Used the draw reins again until we jumped our little tiny baby x. At least its something.
Wednesday- AM lesson, luckily not as warm. Holly is so much more responsive the day after draw reins, I guess she gets it. Another session of baby x jumping, had to really work at getting her to not rush after and to be straight all the way to the rail after, she tends to cut in to change leads. Lead changes are getting so nice, finally.
OK, dinner, bath,bedtime for the cutie pie on my lap, so more Blogging another day ;)
