Wizard Ride 171: Caught by the Fuzz

August 22, 2010

Wizard and Me

Thursday, 8/19/10

After a so-so ride on Wednesday night, I put Wizard’s fuzzy girth back on him and we had a nice ride. It’s hard to say exactly what the problem was last night, since he was not acting uncomfortable for this ride. The cut on his leg did not sting as much as it had scabbed over and he was not gassy at all. Perhaps it was just an “off” night for him…

We rode in the outdoor arena, working on some bending exercises at the trot and a little hand gallop work at the canter. I took him over a little jump, but the results were nothing to write home about. There were no extra poles so I could not build a trot-in pole or anything for the canter-out. He jumped willingly and nicely, but it was not exactly a training experience- mostly, it was us hopping over a jump a few times.

But there is some big news to report.. a local judge is holding a riding clinic at the barn next week and I signed up to ride Wizard in it! We’re officially taking a big step forward in our training.
