After my lesson (weekend before last again, gosh I am so behind), a friend came over to take Cinna for a spin -- we have a girl's trail weekend planned and she was considering taking Cinna and wanted to try to get to know her a little better. She's going to end up taking a different horse (one who is a little more chill lol), but she still wanted to come play with Cinna, and it was super fun to see someone else up on her! Also somewhat of a relief that everything I warned my friend about, Cinna lived up to haha. No surprises there, but at least it's not just me she's sort of a little shit for!
|My friend making her look fancy!|
|I just sat on the big comfy couch and watched lol.|
Once she worked her way through some of Cinna's fake spooking and pretending the bit was fake news, they had some really lovely trot work! Encouraging to me that there might be a dressage horse in there somewhere, despite her perpetually being on the backburner... sigh.
Sometimes the being on back burner isn't a horrid thing. L's owner had her other horse on the back burner for a few years while getting him to Third, and honestly I think it did that mare some good to just grow up a bit more before they started asking more of her. Cinna looks gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
I didn't feel as bad about it when she was four or five but now that she's 10 I feel super guilty Delete
Lookin' good! Also gotta love that fake spookingReplyDelete
Soooooo much fake spooking 🤣 I told my friend there was a 100% chance she would spook at the chairs in the corner of the arena even though they've been there for her last 100 rides and sure enough..... 🤦♀️Delete
She's so pretty! Glad she is who she is no matter who's up there. For some reason, I always feel a little better about myself when the horses pull the same crap with others that they pull with me... Lol!ReplyDelete
Haha right? Makes me feel like it's just something she does not something I cause, if that makes sense? Sigh, horses are great!Delete
