This week, we spent our time outside of the arena riding the pastures & gravel roads or working on a few technical exercises up on the place since the arena hadn't quite dried out before we got another 1.33" Thursday night.
We put several miles under his feet loping, while also working on transitions, stopping & backing, & turnarounds & yielding the hindquarters on a straight line. Today was supposed to be bath & ride over to the public ground day, but I ended up having to give Randy a ride to the dentist in Norfolk, so baths are postponed until Monday, which looks like another warm day.
Next week, I anticipate the arena being soggy for most of the week, so we'll continue to ride & work on things outside. I may stick a shanked bit in him as well. I'm not sure if Jamie would have moved out of the snaffle by the time you picked up.

Next week's update will be posted on Saturday.
I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
