Tuesday I was pretty productive, the weather was less crappy so the ponies and myself were much more enthusiastic for life. I started out getting my yard work out of the way, then the vets came to give Dory her vaccinations (V and O are both on holiday so I am pony sitting) and then it was time for playing ponies!
I brought Sunny in, gave him a nice groom and spent some time with the clippers getting him used to the noise again. The noise of the clippers he had absolutely no problem but the noise of the cable moving on the floor was incredibly offensive to him. Sigh Sunny.
Then we got all tacked up for a ride. He schooled really well, couldn't really fault him at all, we had nice transitions, some nice halt, just a lovely ride. Then I decided to pop up a tiny little jump (about 50cm) and we hopped over that a few times and he was super chill and relaxed about it which was lovely.
After I got off I gave him a quick hose down which he's getting much better about and turned him out to play.
