Anyway, I didn't mind less riding at first, because I was pretty tired after my T3D. But now that the weather has gotten cooler, I am ready to go again! I really liked the T3D. Stacy let me go as fast as I wanted to on the steeplechase and she did not interfere with me too much when we had a jump. After that I had a nice break but I wasn't really tired, so I was thrilled when I got to go again and jump a regular cross country course. When I got back to my stall and rested, I had plenty of energy but my hind legs felt really sore. I would have done the showjumping the next day anyway but Stacy talked to some vets and she decided to just take me home instead and let me rest. She said we can do another T3D next year, and I am really looking forward to it.
At least I have been able to jump a few times recently. I have been very excited to jump and I am very good at it. On other days I have had to do a little bit of dressage or trot and canter around the track a few times. It is not hard work but that little bit of exercise makes me feel good. Some horses really like to have 100% time off-- no riding at all. However, that would make me very bored and if I don't get work I exercise myself in my pasture and sometimes get a little bit agitated when I am being led in or out of the barn. I don't mean to but I can't help it sometimes. It is just better for everyone when Stacy rides me.
