So I want to thank everyone!!!! It was such a great surprise to find that Rocky was HOTD!!!! Now both of my boys have won HOTD 2 times!!!! That is great, so now we will have to try and win hotm soon. I am thinking maybe january or february. Yesterday I rode buddy and rocky. Rode buddy english first and did some jumping. He was amazing and did everything perfect and he is getting pretty good with his flying lead changes! I am so proud of him for that. Then I was done with him and I rode rocky english. That horse is sooooo lazy. I can't seem to get any energy out of him unless i get him to gallop. One time for fun I was in the field and i met my mom on her way home from work. So we decided to see how fast rocky man could go. Keep in mind this horse is a complete pleasure horse and only ever really goes slow. Well apparently he can go 30 mph. It was lots of fun and extremely surprising! so now to wake him up i do a little gallop on him but eventually he goes back to being the laziest boy ever. well i am trying to teach him how to jump! well yesterday i somehow managed to get him to jump 2 feet. It took so much work though! he is starting to get it extremely slowly though. Then i did some equitation work. I worked on stopping, going from the canter to the trot and the trot to the canter. I did some work on stop to canter. Then i did some pivots on the forehand. He is starting to get better. He just needs to be more consistent but i am happy with him as he is only 4. Then i put him away and got buddy out again. I did some games work. Buddy has decided he likes games and jumping better than pleasure stuff but he still will do showmanship. Buddy really like keyhole. At Clay County fair he managed to get reserve champion out of almost 20 if not over 20 people. And i was going against real gamers. So i ended up getting a time of 8. something seconds. It was so great he was amazing for me! It was such a surprise hearing the announcer say and we have a new leader. I did some barrel practice yesterday. Buddy doens't like the first turn but he gets the last turn perfect and his second turn is getting pretty good. we just need to get more speed and work on the first barrel. He is such a good boy lately! I think that is all for now. I'm terribly sorry about how long this is! Hoping to ride tonight! Hope everyone has a great monday!
