Hey!
This weekend was super dee duper fun! The lady that owns and runs the barn and helps all of us 4-H ers out has a niece that comes to stay in Ohio 3 months out of the summer. She had a going away/sweet sixteen party. it was fun cause when she came down to the barn we had a birthday song playing and we had painted "sweet sixteen" and a couple other things on her horse. Then we all went to paint our horses! It was so much fun! I painted Crystal like an indian horse. I put handprints on one side of her butt and a sun on the other. I gave her green highlights in her mane and painted her white socks. I also made a circle of spots around one eye. She looked so pretty! We took them on a long trail ride and galloped in a big field! My friends horse is really lazy cause he's part appaloosa and part percheron. We call him a perchaloosa. He was cantering trying to catch up with the rest of the horses and when he caught up my friend wasn't expecting him to stop but he just suddenly stopped. For some reason when she was cantering she was in two point so she just flew right over his neck. She was okay but her horse ran ahead to eat. He got the reins stuck behind his leg and I was afraid he was gonna trip but before he could I hopped off of Crystal and grabbed him. When we got back we had a bareback party. We all went with just a halter and lead rope tied on as reins. Oh yeah! Before we went on a trail ride we played musical horses and all traded horses. Then we raced each other doing down and back. Crystal and I usually won because she's always ready to go. We also played egg and spoon. Then we had our bareback party. My friend who's birthday it was wanted to canter Crystal bareback. She tried but Crystal is a hard bareback horse because she has such a fast trot! Especially right before you canter! You she was gonna try to canter her but she fell off because of her bumpy trot. She was fine though. Then for some reason two of my friends were just letting their horses cool down in the shade when one spooked! So one spooked and reared and my friend didn't have any stirrups! She fell but was fine. Then the other horse that spooked went on a crazy hand gallop around the arena. My friend that was riding him was riding western. She didn't have any stirrups and only was holding onto the end of the reins but somehow she managed to stay on. So three people fell off! We all seven tried to sleep on the trampoline which was not an easy task! We finally fell asleep around 3:30. When we woke up, after barn chores while the horses were eating we played sardines. Then we went for another trail ride and gallop in the field. i have also been working on setting Crystals head. I use a see saw motion towards my knees using as little pressure as I can. When she drops her head i release the pressure. Is there anything else i should be doing? Thanks!
