Ezhno turned 8 years old today!
We had a really great ride (we cantered for the first time in almost five months and I didn’t fall off, woo~!), then Ezhno got a whole bunch of treats and an extra handful and a half of grain. 😀
The good stuff starts at 5:13, don’t mind our first attempt at the transition… he tossed his head and made a big effort to get the wrong lead (not surprising) and I got nervous and backed him when I probably should have pushed forward instead since he sucked back so hard. Thought it through better on the next attempt at the transition and kicked him forward instead.
Got to love a horse that forgives amateur mistakes, LOL. Overall, I’d say his canter’s about where I left it ~five months ago. 🙂
