Lovely Long Weekend

I left work early on Friday and went to go ride Eli, whose nap time I had clearly interrupted, as I could not get him to go forward. Like, at all. He was falling asleep in the tack while my trainer was petting his face. So I took him for a walk around the property to enjoy the weather at a leisurely pace. Or sometimes just a standstill.

No matter, Eli was fine otherwise. Saturday his forwardly-inclined attitude returned and I hacked him around for a little while. Sunday I took him in the round pen to let him move around freely and to see how he really looked on that heel, which is mostly healed.

Monday, we had a fabulous jump school with distances coming up easily just about everywhere. It helped that I moved out two of the lines a few feet. We hadn’t jumped a complete course in some time, so after jumping around two different courses each set around 3ft we called it a day. I plan to flat Eli tonight. For once the weather seems to be cooperating!
