Fancy is trodding by with a Sunday vote
Saturday was the first time I rode Fancy with her Boa boots on. I figured I would try to get the gators on with the boots. I worked up a sweat, but I got those gators on. One was on better than the other, but I will get it better the next time, I just need lots of practice. I rode Fancy in the corral bareback and then saddled her and rode around the neighborhood. I noticed that bareback riding has improved her response to my leg pressure. She is much better on the leg yields and side passes when bareback. Then I noticed she was better under saddle. We went into the woods just a little way. She was doing great. I didn't notice her lifting her feet anymore than usual. But I tell you those boots sound real funny when her feet hit the ground. They kind of plunk down. LOL. Fancy was really hyper and wanting to go. Finally she settled down and that was relaxing.
After our ride we practiced her walking with me for showmanship or what ever. And I told her to stand and I walked in front of her and I wanted her to be still. When I stopped in front of her, she put her nose straight out to me and gently blew into my nose, like when we greet each other when I go out to her. I was thinking, you can't do that if we enter a show, so be still, but she was so sweet and cute, I could not correct her. I just softly blew back and rubbed her face. I don't care of she does that in a show. We would only be at a show for fun and I will be lucky if she gives me her attention with all the new stimuli at the shows. I need her to trust me, so that I will not punish her for. I will just love her because she deserves that and more.
Fancy and I hope you are enjoying a lovely & Blessed weekend.
