On saturday i lunged pc for the first time and got so carried away i didnt even notice it was raining. pc is awesome and listens but he takes chances – angelique had to reprimand him a number of times!
i must say i didnt really feel comfortable lunging pc for the first time. it was easier lunging teddy but then him and i have a little more history than pc and me. i went home and started to read the book pam has lent me. so when i arrived at gas on sunday bright and freezing – i was ready to go!
had my lesson on teddy and we did a few exercises and boy are my legs hurting today – pams such a drill sergeant! lol teddy wanted to canter again and this time i was ready. he kept lifting his left leg but i sat him flat so he didnt go anywhere but on the trot
after the lesson i walked with pc rather than lunged him. he listened so well it was amazing! pam called us into the arena to join the group lesson but on foot. deedee was playing up but angelique had a firm hand on him. lily/tristan and lisel/? flew past so well even deedee when he realised he had to work
after a while pc and i left – again he was so calm, polite (except when he nibbled pams scarf ) and obedient.
after pam finished with the group i spoke to her about the lunging. so she showed me a few things which when i tried it – worked.
looking forward to tuesday when i shall try what i learnt and see how pc reacts. the lunge will then happen slowlyyyyy….
