So, without further adieu, here are some photos documenting a small part of the adult ammy with a green pony mare struggle:
Turning, what's that?
|Look at me teaching her how to bulge through her shoulder. Go team ;)|
|Magnetic gate sucking us in|
|That shoulder again, and no clue what I think I'm doing about it.|
Forward = so unfair!
|What a lovely canter transition, but I was probably thrilled because at least it happened.|
|Increasing the difficulty by making it super crooked too. So much wow.|
|Can't even, competitive llama racing|
|Forward is hard, up is better|
Can't even today.
|I don't even know what this is. Angry trantering giraffe?|
|Game faces, doesn't B look happy to be cantering? ;)|
|"I hates you, cute cowboy. The answer remains NO! I did not sign up to work here"|
|Pro llama rider. This would have been a decent moment for us in the first month or so.|
|No idea what the context of this was, but sums up so many of our rides then.|
Would I do it again?
Of course. I learned a ton, and B is a pretty solid lower level dressage and jumping pony now. But never again with the 'project pony for eventual resale' thing. The project has turned into years and work and will never leave :) Here's a couple of pics from the same era to illustrate part of the reason she stayed:
|So cute..."I hate this cowboy, can we please go home now?"|
|Potential to be cute under saddle too|
|Most important quality of all for a blog pony: ability to pose for photos.|
