Today was awesome! It was probably one of the most perfect days I’ve had in a long time.
This morning, right after I ate my breakfast, a few of my friends from next door came over to visit me. I love to see my friends, because they always groom on me and sometimes they even bring me treats, like today! Today they brought me a big, juicy, green apple. It was delicious! When I was finished eating my apple, I got to lick the sticky apple juice from their fingers.
Then, I got an even bigger and better surprise. I know, you’re probably wondering what could POSSIBLY be a better surprise than getting an apple right after breakfast, right? Well, I’ll tell you what: my Mommy came to ride me! We had a great ride. It was sunny and warm and the day was so perfect, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Did I say I couldn’t have asked for anything more? Well, I was wrong. Because after we warmed up and did some awesome, fun lead change exercises, my Mommy actually broke one of her own rules and let me jump over a tiny little jump, even though I had yesterday off! I’ll admit, I would barely consider it a “jump” because it was so small, and we only jumped it once each way, but still… It was the BEST DAY EVER!
Tomorrow, I’ll post a video of the lead change exercises we did today. They were a lot of fun! My Mommy said that she was really proud of Daddy for doing such a good job keeping me in training while she wasn’t able to be there. She told him that he’s the best assistant trainer in the world. She also said that she was proud of me for being such a good boy, and for not forgetting anything I learned. But I’m an adult now; I’m well beyond the days where I forget what I’ve learned, because I know I’m on my way to becoming a Grand Prix Jumper soon. And Grand Prix Jumpers can’t forget things so easily. I hear it’s hard work… and I’m ready for it!
Anyway, when I was finished working, do you know what my Mommy did? She gave me treats as a reward for behaving so perfectly!
Yeah, I have to say that today was pretty much perfect. I might even get to jump a little more tomorrow… We’ll see, but I’m going to be on my best behavior, just in case!
I would love to hear about your day, too, if you want to tell me about it in a comment! For now, I’m off to eat my night hay, and then I’m going to catch some Z’s. I need to rest up for tomorrow… I have a feeling I’m going to need my energy! Goodnight, friends!
