Nothing too impressive, but here are some photos!
I've found that lunging with sidereins for about 15 minutes before my ride helps
Granite to warm up and work the kinks out before I get on and we just get in an argument.
It's mildly depressing to see how quiet he goes in the sidereins verses reins in my hands.
I guess my hands are not nearly as quiet as I would like to believe.
Lazy, sweet boy.
It was a less than mediocre ride, but I can't blame poor Granite. Between the holidays, traveling,
and the lack of sunlight, lights, or an indoor, he was only ridden about 4 times in December.
Barn Owner's husband did give me a Christmas present... JUMPS! He had a bunch stashed in the barn loft and a few weeks ago he asked if I would like some... uh, YEAH!
Lesson is Saturday... nervous and so excited! Because the trainer is at our barn at least twice a week and has barn-sat for our Barn Owner a few time, she knows Granite and rumor has it that she can't wait to see him go and to get on him. I just hope she isn't sorely disappointed.
