It’s Wednesday already? 

 My life is legit flashing by. 

Had an interesting ride Tuesday morning. Ponyface wasn’t sure he wanted a longe warmup (well skip it next ride but he doesn’t make the rules here – we did 6 min) and he continued his silly stickiness at mount up. 

He’s not standing still during solo mounting so I have that on my radar for skill building. It’s not shying away like he used to do, just general bored-ness mixed with some baby bratty-ness. Working on it. 

Silliness ensued as he pulled a bit of a “nope not going in the ring!” moment as we walked toward A and thankfully I was quick enough with a quick flick and open rein to nip it. We had a nice forward walk until we tried trot when the sticky pony returned. Claudia assisted with a lunge whip at the center of the ring and we ended up with a really fun, forward ride from there. He’s always so proud of himself when he does well. Love his stinky face. Just goes to show, you can’t give up! 

I’m a teensy bit concerned about his ‘aversion’ and wonder if there is a reason for it (i.e. he alwaaaaays has to pee. Looking into it), but I’m fairly confident he’s just testing my resolve as any teenager would. 

Additional happy note: I’m really pleased with the muscling he’s developing in his neck, just need to balance it out in the hind end and top line!

My car is like a mobile tack and pet food store.
