Felix and I trailered out for another ride on Monday - we had a blast. Great day, great horses. The only interesting moment was when we were going through a swampy area and Rio who is supposed to be a fearless leader decided that the very large snapping turtle crossing the trail was a big scary dinosaur and she spent the rest of the day very concerned there would be another scary scary turtle lurking in wait for her!
He had a lesson with Shauna on Tuesday, and we worked on some jumping of crossrails yesterday. He's been such a star lately I'm finding it rough to find things to talk about. When I first started this blog - being as he was a pretty rank little dude when I got him I was expecting to have a lot more training hurdles to overcome, which might have made for an interesting read. Not that I'm not thrilled that he has come along so well, because believe me - I am. We're actually looking very good for hsi eventing debut in the spring the way things are going right now.
However, we can't speak too soon - because we are coming to our last 2 days of paid training, and he'll be mostly mine and Connie's from here on out.
