I notice we're still struggling a bit with sharing the ring. It's not dramatic or bad, but she's constantly monitoring where the other horse(s) are, and like the jumps, there's a definite pony magnet effect happening. Hopefully our clinic next weekend (in a group setting) will prove useful helping with that or at a minimum give us more miles with other horses in the arena. I'm planning to ride in the day ahead and camp out, then ride home the day after. That's a few miles for the baby pony so she'll have a pretty relaxed schedule this week. She'll have today off, then I have my regular lesson tomorrow then will give her Wed/Thurs off to charge up the batteries! Ginger may have to get called back into service lol.
Overall though, I'm still super pleased with little Midge - she's way more consistent, and these days it all feels way less green than it has been.
In other news, I have a potential job lined up in a nearby town. It would mean more big changes, but it is a good compromise - I can keep my 'real' career and come home weekends and holidays. G could visit me on his days off. To keep it horse related, the area has a couple of excellent coaches and boarding options, and coincidentally hosts the show series I was going to travel to this summer. Obviously, I'd rather stay home but I'm not getting many hours at the job I'm at. We're OK with that, but I do love being financially independent and am easily bored if I'm not working. I think I'll be happy whichever way it works out, but if I'm honest I'd really prefer to stay home and somehow magic up some more hours delivering the mail! :)
