Tuesday evening diary – Happy Birthday Martini!!

The birthday boy!!!

Happy birthday Martini!!! We celebrated with pumpkin donuts, our party hat and me singing happy birthday to him very badly lol 🤣🤣🤣

Our lesson today was working on an actual dressage test. I successfully completed the intro test A which is a walk trot test. I’ve completed this test before at just a walk but tonight was the first time I did it the way you are actually supposed to.

My nemesis tonight – trotting circles. They start out as circles but end up looking more like a half moon or an octagon lol. And of course, keeping Martini trotting throughout the entire circle is hard.

My goal for the spring is to go off property with Martini and compete in some horse shows. So I’ve got the entire winter to work on my circles lol.

A lovely afternoon/evening at the barn indeed. ❤️🐴

Me and the birthday boy!!
