Since Anna’s parents are in town, we have had some extra help around and been able to get in a little more riding this week. In fact, today was my third ride on Calli in under a week. It was a nice mid fifties afternoon, Anna rode Precious, and I work with Calli.
I hate arena work – it’s boring. I would be much happier if Anna would train Calli and I could just show up and ride at a show or hunter pace. But alas, Anna feels I should have some role in training my own horse.
So, it was a circles, bending, transitions sort of day. And it went pretty well. Calli is showing that she can actually work. I started some lateral work. And then I wrapped it up with some cross rails.
