Worked on the stuff I worked on with Elisia on Monday. Went much better.
Zapa and Santana: I am pretty sure I worked with both of these horses, but I cannot remember what I did, which is why I need to write this every day when I come home!
Can't remember at all what I did, I know I rode at least one horse. I swear I am not that old, but short term memory is killing me.
Zapa: I worked Zapa with the surcingle and side reins.
Santana: I put Santana in a broken spoon bit with a mild shank. It was what mom got for me when she first ordered all of my first Paso Fino stuff from Casa Dosa. He was foaming on the bit even before we got into the arena, but he sure doesn't want you to touch it. I felt like we were back to our first days with fino. He was all over the place and pretty naughty. I think the curb chain was too tight (I had to use the one belonging to Precious which has many links cut off for her super small chin), so I’ll put the right size chain on. Although I never really put much pressure on the bit, so it will be interesting to see what happens next. The next plan of action is to make him carry the bit for our next few rides. Santana's owner & her sister are coming to see him on Sunday. We are going to take video tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see what they think and to have you all view the video.
Today I didn't ride at all, I just cleaned stalls. I cleaned my 3, and then I cleaned two more for former boarders whose horses are staying at the barn temporarily while they are on vacation. The stalls were so terrible; I couldn't let them go back in without cleaning them. I also picked Slick’s stall while his owner is in
