July’s Review, Prepping for August

July Goals:

1. Show in July   Checking this one off-we showed 2’3” and ribboned in every class

2. Continue great flatwork    Loving all the great rides we’ve had lately

3. Stay in shape (it’s gonna get hot)  Meh, it was actually record lows this month, and I even added an extra day of working out to my schedule. 

4. Keep asking for the lead changes  I’m asking….but still getting them randomly

5. Jump around more ‘filled’ jumps in preparation for show  We jumped ALL the things this month

6. Take O for a trail ride western style   Photogenic evidence of the cuteness below!
