Life has been wonderfully hectic, so I'm rather late in posting. On Saturday the 5th we went to Twin Rivers for an XC schooling and it was a wonderful experience. Hemie was brave and willing as we schooled all the BN jumps, with some Intro and some Novice thrown in too. We also had our very first gallop. As in, racehorse gallop. It was exhilarating.
This coming weekend we're headed to Fresno County Horse Park (formerly Ram Tap) for our 2nd horse trials. We've never schooled there before, but we're going Intro again so I'm not super concerned. It's the warm up ring I'm nervous about. But hopefully we've given Hemie the tools to deal with stress better. And me too.
