Gearing up for CVF this coming weekend with Coolio! Hoping to move him up to the 2'-2'3" division at this horse show. Hoping that the weather holds off so that I can school him over fences this weekend at home. K is working on a small outdoor sand ring for me so that I can ride in inclement weather instead of being totally bound by the weather while riding and jumping on the grass. The sand ring will be small but it will be very good enough for now!
I rode yesterday and Cool was pretty good, only one little bucking session but after some cantering he quieted down. We cantered over some single and bounce poles which was very good. Today it rained, but I am hoping to get back to riding Tuesday (as long as the ground dries out) and then Thursday I will haul Cool to a nearby arena to jump him around before hauling to the show Friday. We will be there all weekend this time, Friday thru Sunday...poor Coolie!
More updates when I can finally get back to riding.
