"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

Fun in the sun!!

so today was a rather fun and interesting day.

first off I was Going to bring Blaze, Amour, Joy, and Angel, up to the round pen, and since the round pen is on the other side of the lake now, I didn't want to make 4 drips, tho it would be some nice exercise. me being lazy I haltered all 4 and had 4 lead ropes, and on my way I went. of course, Blaze wanted to lag behind and so did Ange, and the 2 good girls- Amour and Joy stayed close to me.

skip onto what we did.
started out I Played a little with 4 horse liberty, that was fun! everyone did great. then I Taught Joy to lay down, she did fantastic! what a smart little girl, I can't wait to teach her everything Blaze can do. then teach Blaze to Jump over her (tho I will be VERY careful with that)

Then rode her a little, and then rode Amour Bridle less, and bare back and Angel to. and we played with our freestyle, and they both did pretty good. Angel bucked a little and so did Amour, silly girls. then I got off and started teaching Angel to bow, which, I have to be EXTREMELY careful with Angel, since she is a RBI, she can go catatonic very easily, so I taught her to bow. and almost taught Amour to bow.

after I was done with that I Practiced My level 4 online audition! with Mr. Blaze. he did FANTASTIC!! Tho, Our Flying lead changed were um a little rusty! tho we are working on them, his trailer load was awesome! got him to trot into the trailer from 45 feet away, then we went on long line driving and he did fantastic simple lead changes, and weave and learning haunches in! we'll get there. then I hoped on and went for Freestyle and he was FANTASTIC again! we are almost ready to Film L4 freestyle, just need a little more control at the canter!

everything is going so Great with all of them. I am Having so much fun learning new things, and tomorrow I'm Gonna play with Finesse, and flying lead changes, and possibly shoulder in-Haunches in. and side passes. and play with some patterns with the girls, maybe Online for Joy...Freestyle for Amour and Angel and some online for them both.

well Gonna go eat dinner here in a few.

Keep it Natural
Hannah & Blaze
