Academy Crossrails Equitation II – 5th of 6

All with Doctor Whooves (Rodney)

As we got ready, I tried to convince Rodney that this was schooling with ribbons. He pretended to go along but didn’t really buy into it.

In the first class, he was suspicious of the poles. He expected them to spontaneous morph into 5′ fences that he would have to jump.

In all of the classes, he cantered at least once, some times between the jumps, always around the top of the ring. At first it was exuberance. I let him roll along for a few strides. Later, when he was tired (mentally) and frustrated, he cantered because thought he was supposed to. I stayed chill and reminded him that we were trotting today.

Heading into last line of last class, I felt a wave of ‘This is easy.’ I hope some of that came from him.

A fun take on the traditional ribbon colors.

Onwards!
