So much is going well with Simon pants right now. He’s jumping with great form. He’s starting to relax with flat work. He’s even making strides with getting the strides (-1 points for over use of the word ‘stride’). There’s just one problem we’re still having… lead changes.
For the record, I officially hate lead changes and I don’t think it’s possible I will ever own a horse that does them.
That being said, I love my Simon and I’m trying to look on the bright side. There are always other career choices for us if we become official lead change flunkees… right?
You don’t need changes until like level 8 with dressage, right? We’ll probably
die of boredom try something new before we get that far 😉
Endurance could work. If I get over my fear of trail riding. That could be a potential snag.
I have always wanted to drive! Even though I have no cart, no harness, and no access to any driving instruction.
Surely if my horse can do a turn on the haunches, he can do a pivot.
At least his head position is already ready for saddleseat classes! Just gotta work on that trot now.
None of these look all that appealing… guess I’ll do more praying to the lead change gods that they improve soon.
