Horse Shows and a Clinic!

This pretty much sums up my week and explains my blog silence.  It's FRIDAY though!!  The weather has been perfection which means I have been doing lots of riding.

Next Friday Poppy and I head to an AA show for some jumper fun.  I don't know what we will be doing.  I assume the High Adults but I need to sit down with trainer and discuss why I am not moving up.  This is a good low key show for it too.  Poppy has been good this week and we have had a couple great jump schools.  I feel ready.

I have mailed off the check for Luxxx's first clinic on the 25th!  Woo hoo!  It is nearby and being taught by his breeder.  Since they have a division for greenies I figured why not?  It will be a good experience for him.  So this means we need to continue our hard work.  He is doing well with the latest consistent riding.  Of course he has days where he relapses and forgets stuff.  That's ok though.  I am finding he does best without breaks.  Typically I like to give babies lots of walking breaks to keep that brain from frying.  For him he totally loses focus and has trouble regaining it.  If I just continue working him and compensate with a shorter session he seems to thrive with this.  

Lots of rain on the forecast for next week so we will see how much riding I get in.  Happy Friday and Happy Riding!
