The rain came as promised but it wasn’t as bad as we’d all thought it was going to be. The rain had eased by the time I left for riding this morning. The lake however at our yard was huge. My socks were soaked through by the end of the day.
I rode Shadow twice today and we had a lot of fun. He was a little slow in walk, not as quick as usual in trot but by the end of our first ride we had a brilliant canter. I did lose both stirrups but did not feel phased at all and just sat there in the canter, loving it.
My second ride, I asked if someone could film some of my riding as I am taking an HTML course and my class project requires I have some video media and seen as I have chosen to do a riding website for practice, I thought it’d be fun to get some videos. And now you can all see what a terrible rider I am.
So the second ride was good, a lot of road work. And the one canter we tried, I slowed him out of the canter as we nearly knocked my RI and I got hit in the head by a branch so I tensed up sadly. Kind of wish, we had video of the previous canter and not this one but here are the videos below. Not much, in fact there’s more walking than anything, should have done the video on the farm hack but there you go.
Walking part 1
A lot of traffic work here and just walking. Lots of voices too. I’ll give you a clue, I’m on the big white horse.
Some Trotting, Part II
Here is how badly my rising trot is. 😉
A Little Canter
Not my best, as I said but I wanted to be safe.
So that’s my riding videos. Please feel free to judge me. 🙂
