2.7.13

Blergh...

After a few days of proper training with Vallu, all of the pizzazz has gone out of him. I even tried to do some piaffe, which normally he loves to show off, but even that was horrible

He has been truly fantastic for the last three days before yesterday. The softness and roundness that we've been working on with Sanna is coming quicker and better each time I ride him, and Vallu seems to be content with the work too. Everything was going so well that we started working on flying changes (which were great!) and even a little bit of canter half-pass (they were rusty but great fun to ride) 

And then yesterday, it was as if all the energy and happiness had been sucked out of him. Was he just tired, too hot, uncomfortable or just not feeling like working? I don't know what was wrong, but after weeks of fantastic work, it was a real shock to me. So today he got an easy lunge, and then tomorrow a walking day with some pole work and hopefully he will cheer up again...

The video below is from last week during my lesson with Sanna when Vallu was really really good!
