|we are the best at toodling|
The internet is a dangerous place for toodling, as you might be aware. I was reading through Eventing Nation's #EventerProblems list and I thought it was funny right up until I saw the last image on this list.
And because I am toodling (and have loony friends), I thought "we can do that" and then immediately "I bet I can make a competition out of this". So I emailed it to the obvious choice for the challenge (and not the one that would kick both our asses without even trying) and obviously, she was in.
It's all been a very hush hush project, because you don't go advertising to your competition just how you train your horse to WIN, but here's what I did on day one:
1) Get water trough.
|I'll teach those DQs to leave things laying out....|
2) Show it to horse in the arena.
|so interesting now|
3) Lunge horse over similar skinnies to remind him that he does things other than dressage.
|so easy now|
4) Lunge horse over it with standard(s).
4) Show it to horse under saddle and establish that he still has to go forward/straight.
|forgot to take a pic of this part, so you get yesterday's shot again|
|Wore the same outfit, but looked better in my head|
TO BE CONTINUED (DUN DUN DUN)!!!!
