.....today was a beautiful day, with a high of almost 60*!!! I spent about 3 hours with the horses, mom was at her mom's house, and I was home alone almost all day.
First, I went out to the meadow, and got the grooming box out and just sat down on the hay feeder and waited until the horses came in to me. (they were out in the meadow) Well, I waited about 5 mins, until Flicka came up to me. I rewarded her with a vigorous brushing. She's starting to shed, SPRING is coming!!
Sweet Pea would NOT come. I whistled a couple times, inviting her into the corral, where she could get brushed, but she just looked toward me and walked away to the opposite end of the meadow. She's so moody.
So, I did groundwork with Flicka; backing and lunging. She did good w/ lungeing, but not so good w/ backing.
Then, I brought SP in and saddled her up. Was going to pony Flicka, but got halfway down the road, then turned around, left Flicka there and cantered Sweet Pea for about 10 mins nonstop. I was tired of her acting up, so I decided if she has so much energy, she'll put it to some good use. She settled down real nice after that long canter stretch. I also want to get her in shape for the rodeo in a few months.
Maybe some of you can help me w/ this problem?.......When I'm cantering with Sweet Pea, I feel like she's crooked, but I realize its me. I think I'm putting my weight in the right stirrup more than in the left. And my butt doesn't feel even against the cantle either. I think maybe when I saddle up, I put the saddle a little crooked, like the left side farther back. I'll try making sure its totally straight when I ride again, and see if that makes a difference.
Well, this is a long enough blog now!! I'll let you go :)

Hugs,
Andrea, Sweet Pea, Acorn, Flicka ♥ ☆
