Training Ride

Dandy had an impromptu training ride today instead of a lesson with me on top. I was supposed to have a lesson but since I had already ridden a horse that killed my legs earlier that day, I asked Madchen to ride instead. You loose your muscles quick when you don’t ride for over a week.

It’s nice to see him ridden by a professional but I’m not sure he enjoyed actually being made to work. They worked completely on bending with just a few times down the jump line thrown in. Madchen said Dandy was starting to get it to the right so she’s also going to ride him on Thursday to see if the lesson got through.

Of course he was soaked with sweat by the end of the ride. I have finally decided to bite the bullet and will be clipping Dandy tomorrow. It’s going to be a trace clip, my first time doing it! Eek!

Wish me luck!
