Anyway, long story short, she's fine, I'm fine, a cop showed up and we explained what happened. Never a dull moment!
When I got back to the barn, I tied Lucy to the barn while I cleaned her stall and fed the other horses, then I worked with her on the ground for about 25 minutes. I didn't want her to think she could be naughty and then come home and get fed.
At least before I got tossed, we had a great ride. I spent about an hour and a half out in the field yesterday building some new jumps, and today we tried them all out.
|mini tantrum after the first jump. she was just really excited!|
|"I love you despite your craziness"|
|I had to get off to fix a part of the jump - she was very good about|
standing there quietly while I worked.
|these two jumps worked out to be a perfect two strides apart. we had a|
lot of fun jumping them as a line!
|she was unsure about this jump, just a pile of rocks with a thick branch|
over the top.
|with a nice, confident ride to the base, however, she jumped it fine.|
