Hay castles and counter canter

When you have a smart horse you continuously have to outsmart them. Mr. Grumpy is one of those horses. For a while now he has been making a fool of me when it comes to the left canter. Either he would decide to just stop or he would start to counter canter. Because he knew that I would then have to slow down and start again. Now that I’ve finally started to react quicker and pushing the right buttons he does the “correct” canter more or less from the beginning. The last half year he has been trying me out on so many things, but the canter has been my biggest annoyance. Now that we finally are becoming a team it feels so good!


Today his box was completely cleaned out and filled with new hay. For some reason it seems that he wants to save it as he pushes it all to one corner making a hay castle. Kinda cute.
