Oh finally Friday. This week felt like twelv years, it was like it was never going to end, but we made it guys. Finally on the sofa with my favorite liquorish and movie.
Yesterday I had the worst ride. Grumpy hates circles, I therefore hate circles. Man, I even screamed in the lesson that he was for sale. The monster Maria comes out when I’m tired and nope it’s not pretty. Grumpy spent half an hour getting warm and less stiff and then he spent half an hour being a super strong neurotic racehorse. My arms where complete jellyfish afterwards.
Today on the other hand he was much more relaxed and we could follow our own routine as we were riding alone. I’m starting to notice on Grumpy that he is finding the group lessons harder and harder. He becomes stressed when it’s to many horses and I’m not always able to warm him up in the way I know works for him. So moving forward there will be some changes to our riding schedule. I know some is going to say this is redicolous, but it’s time to listen to what he wants so I’ll make sure to take a group lesson less a week. If that makes him more relaxed then so be it. It will be more enjoyable for the both of us in the end.
Have a lovely weekend!
