Slowing down

So the last few weeks we have been slowing things down with Mister, he has seemed to really enjoy it.  We thought it would take a while to bring back the lope but it seems it is coming back a lot of quicker than we thought.  And his jog, that horse loves to jog! We even got a compliment that our lope after only a few weeks is good enough to compete in open shows!  We are still going to do dressage, we are just going to do it all!  Dressage, western dressage, western pleasure, hunter under saddle and some trail!  Quarter horses really can do it all!!  We are back to doing lots of dressage exercises again and he seems to be liking the slowed down versions.

Next week we are trying the dressage saddle again.  It will be nice to be back in it!  We have our first show in April so we are going to have to start getting ready for that!

The weather is warming up this week so I’m excited about getting some good riding in!  We rode this week but it was so cold that we didn’t push anything.  I was asked to canter and while we did the wind made it too cold to do it for too long.  So this week it will be nicer and we will practice everything!  So until next week, happy riding!
