Alex had his feet done on Wednesday and my farrier said they looked great which was a huge relief. Since he had just had his tootsies done, but I didn't want to lose two days in a row, I just lunged him in the surcingle. Despite his newly minted shoes, he worked completely sound, which was also a relief since he was always a little ouchy after shoeing before the abscesses.
Thursday and Friday we did LOTS of work on the flat (necessary because he was a little wound) and tripped over more tiny small cross rails. Overall they were very productive rides so I was happy.
Saturday was a big day. I decided it was time to actually jump a real cross rail. The hubby came to take some more video for me and his parents were there to watch which was also a big deal, since my parents-in-law have never seen me ride Alex. I won't go on about it, I'll just let the video speak for itself :-)
Alex was so good, and I think he really enjoyed himself with is fantastic. I really want him to love jumping Obviously I'm a nerd for having so much fun with the video editing software, but I was having so much fun!
Tomorrow it's back to work and hopefully more jumps.
