Chance has been so lazy the past couple of weeks. My usual wild child of a horse has been a slug! Today, I had to borrow a crop from the lady I was riding with to wake him enough to jump. On the bright side, I was able to jump a jump off of a tight turn without him getting worked up – which never happens. Also, at the show this weekend he should perk up just enough (hopefully). We are riding in the indoor arenas at the facility, and he tends to be a little spookier than he is in the outdoor arenas. So I will need him as quiet as possible going in. The downside, I am not used to riding such a quiet horse! It’s weird! He is always a little dull on the flat, but usually once we start jumping he perks up and I have to work on slowing him down. Today it was hard work to keep him in front of my leg, and unfortunately he will not tolerate a spur. It is so funny how horses can be so wild some days and so lazy others. They really keep us on our toes (or heels rather)!
