Changes officially in progress!

Tired pony after his lesson tonight!
Yes! Pony has officially started learning his changes as of tonight! I left work and headed straight to the barn to get ready for our lesson tonight only to find out that the lesson in front of me had to cancel (poor mare got stung by a bunch of bees or something) so that put us having our lesson in about 10 minutes! I ran out and grabbed pony, who was so nicely standing right by the gate, and rushed to tack him up. Since I wasnt in my riding clothes yet and we had talked about her riding him soon I asked if our trainer wanted to ride him tonight in stead, perfect! I LOVE watching him go. You just cant help but smile as you watch him go around. He is looking seriously awesome and it is still crazy to me that he is mine. Its so much fun to have a horse with buttons!

Then this happened:

(sorry its bad quality. Used my phone and the lighting is hard to work with!)

That was the first time he has ever been asked or anything and he just pulls that out! Isnt totally clean but it was close. And it will only get better and better as he learns! I mean he couldnt possibly get the change the first time each way could he?

But he could! What a super pony :) Now its on to prepping for the state fair this weekend! 1 halter class plus musical freestyle on Saturday then 1 halter class and 3 under saddle classes on Sunday!


Tolo has also been doing super! Put some fences up and jumped him on Saturday and he was a total star. Confident to every fence and even remembered his changes! Of course they were just little fences but we did jump some flowers without problems also. Its so nice having 2 easy horses!
