Circles. . .so simple, yet so complicated.
We have a show this weekend that we are in no way prepared for. No driving has been done (I finally got new bearings for my cart wheels but they need to be put on), minimal line driving was completed, we did one session of side passing, and that's about it. . .Ugh.
So today we decided to work on our circles while line driving. Of course, the line driven reinsmanship course probably won't even have circles in the pattern this time, but oh well. Last time we did circles they looked like this:
Today, we moved from this:
We kind of fall apart at the last half of the circle. But we made some progress so we stopped working on the circles and went on a line drive. I took Shyloh past some pretty scary things and was very happy when she decided to trust me and go through (after stopping and trying to turn around a few times). And some guy was on a riding lawn mower cutting the grass and Shy could have cared less about that. She is really coming along.
|She must sense we have a show this weekend|
I decided to put her fly mask on her. This will keep the gnats out of her ears and the flies away from this cut. And hopefully prevent anymore eye gouging attempts.
I just hope she keeps it on. . .but I am pretty sure I will be combing 15 acres looking for it when I go out there next. My first clue to that was watching Shy try to shake the fly mask off. . .
The next clue was watching her try and roll the fly mask off. . .
Oh pony. . .never a dull moment!
