Four parties if you count the GCC/ODS party I had to miss. But we did do the 4-H Year-end Banquet most of the day Saturday, Amy’s 21st Sat. evening, and our YaYa Xmas party Sunday evening. No time to ride on Sat/Sun; so Mallory and I had a lesson on Friday morning.
Just enough rain fell Friday morning to dampen Splash and provide mud clumps to for me to smear with the grooming brush before saddling. Mallory and I took Arty and Splash to a pre-weekend mini-party lesson in the mizzel or drist before lunch at our fav. Mexican place in Catoosa. After warming up, we did shoulder-in and leg-yield at the walk – then trot before finishing with walk/trot/canter/roll-backs.
I am NOT ready for the holiday season. But I can’t wait for all the fun.
Oh, I almost forgot, Ivy won High Point Jr. Training Level with Kizzy as well as the Jaime Perpetual Award for a drawing of draft horses inspired by the clinic with Sula R last summer.
